Although slightly behind schedule, according to Bob Folsom of Campus Planning, workers are rushing completion of the structure which will house the 183-bell instrument and clock. WSC's carillon will be larger than BYU's and the State Capitol Building's combined, ac- cording to Development Fund Director, Dean Hurst. Esthetic quality of the campus will be greatly enhanced by the extensive musical range and verstility of the $45,000 electronic instrument of bells, according to informed officials. Carillon recitals will be held. The $220,000 Stewart Bell Tower, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Donnell Stewart, will include a room housing the carillon console and explanatory material, and a museum for WSC to bridge the gap between the old Weber college campus and the new. A continuity is thus intended, inculating traditions and old campus flavor with newer student perceptions, as well as current and future notable events. "Morale and esprit de corps for students, faculty, and alumni will probably be lifted by the combined junction of the carillon, the clock, and the information available at the museum," said Mr. Hurst. The mid-campus 100-foot high tower will include four large visible bronze bells, cast in Holland, 61 Flemish bells, 61 harp bells, 61 celecte bells. Sound will be controlled manually or electronically, via the console in the room in the base of the tower. A $4,500 four-sided clock will top the tower, chiming the hour. Near the base of the structure will be a meditation-observation platform. The room housing the carillon console will be under the platform. The donors, Mr. Donnell Stewart and Mrs. Elizabeth Shaw Stewart, have contributed generously to the ( college, in a variety of areas such as: student scholarships, student loans, library grant, building N programs, music department, equipment, museum. Other contributions throughout the community have received their help, such as the McKay-Dee Hospital, and facilities for teenage girls. oooooooooooooooooooooooo What's Happening?

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
