Miller who will relinquish the presidency of Weber State College next July. The evening's activities will include a program reviewing President Miller's life, followed by a reception. Dean W. Hurst, director of WSC College Relations, is general chairman of arrangements assited by students, faculty, administrators ad others assigned to several committees. The broadly-based honor is expected to be attended by educators, government, business and civic leaders from throughout the state. "We know that President Miller, during his many years as an educator, has touched the lives of countless hunders of individuals," said Mr. Hurst. "We anticipate that many hundreds will want to attend the programs honoring President Miller and to pay tribute to him and wish him well." During the 19 years Dr. Miller has been president at Weber State, eleven major buildings have been completed and two additional buildings are nearing completion. Student enrollment grew 240 per cent from 1962, the last year Weber was a junior college, to the present; the comparison being 4,331 and 10,373. President Miller has held wide affiliations in educational circles since he entered the profession as a young man. He has held offices on the national, regional, state and local levels. Several weeks ago Dr. Miller requested the Utah Board of Higher Education to permit him to step down as president July 1, a few days before his 65th birthday, and to allow him to remain on the faculty as a teacher in education until his normal retirment year. A successor to the venerable leader is expected to be named by the Utah Higher Board within a few weeks. Individuals representing students, faculty, administration, and Institutional Council have been involved in recommending and interviewing applicants from which the successor will be chosen. Committee chairmen working with Mr. Hurst on the presidential reception and other honors include Dale T. Browning, member, WSC Institutional Council; Jerry Burns, students; Dr. Russell W. Carruth, WSC Alumni Association; Dr. Herbert M. Cecil, music department; Dr. Robert A. Clarke and Louis A. Gladwell, college administration; Dr. Dix W.

The ten students are members of Gamma Theta Epsilon, a campus geological fraternity. They plan to enter the mapping project in competition for the Ronald V. Jensen award for environmental improvement. The basic idea for the park was inspired by a paper written by Russell Stubbles, one of the ten participating students. The park will extend from Harrison Blvd. at the bottom of Ogden Canyon and continue west to Washington Blvd. Under Dr. Greer's directions the students have been working since the beginning of Spring Quarter at the proposed site. The Ogden City Council has re-zoned the area prohibiting the building of man-made structures on the land. Hopefully the park will be an area inside city limits that remains as close to nature as possible. "Usually the students are assigned some ivory tower project with no benefit as far as usefulness is concerned," Dr. Greer said. get it," he added.

The students discussed present Chinese policies with Chou Nan, the first secretary of the delegation to the United Nations from the People's Republic of China. Environment, international crime, racial discrimination, territories and school systems were among issues discussed with the Chinese delegate. Chou Nan was described as being very informal and very cordial by Alan Lyon. "We spoke on a one to one basis. He was a very intelligent man and an extremely excellent conversationalist."Chou Nan described his country's principle stand regarding relationships with other peoples of the world as follows: "The People's Republic of China supports all oppressed peoples of the world who are seeking independence and self determination." The Weber and U of U students were the only students who had the opportunity to meet with the delegate. Weber also represented the People's Republic of China at the Harvard UN March 24-26 where they were recognized as the best delegation at the session from among 63 countries represented. r 3 - v :.v. j 'i.-f y- 'i GREEN BELT PARK Dr. Deon Green, (r) of the geology department, discusses the survey of the Ogden River with.-WSC geology students Scott Parkinson and Russell Stubbles (I to r).

|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.|
