The "Carpenter" sound; "rock" with all the hard edges V. . - , . I ; i , trimmed off; "pop" with sweetness substituted for slickness; "easy listening" minus blandness; timeless romanticism without the Saccharine Gentle, melodic, smooth and upbeat - but tinged with a sassiness and savvy; the Carpenter sound cuts across all musical categories, integrates the best of all possible worlds... and delights audiences of all ages and tastes. It took a long time and a lot of faith and persistence for Richard and Karen to push their distinctive sound past the barriers of the - hard-rock kingdom, but when A&M's bossman Herb Alpert, a hit maker himself, he gave them that important break the sound caught on like quickfire and the duo were rocketing to their current super-stardom.

Further Richard stated, "For about one solid year we've beengoing-going-going; If we're not performing, we're recording. If we're not recording, we're rehearsing. Six hours of sleep has gotten to be a luxury. Being able to sit down for a relaxed dinner is a dream. The complaint is couched in a tone of exhileration though, for to Karen who with her brother Richard form possibly the most celebrated sibling duo since Jack and Jill-their one year whirlwind blast to the top of the musical ladder has given them the chance to do what they love more than anything else; share their music with an enthusiastic public. Still, the pace of life demanded of these multiple gold-record scorers and Grammies sweepstakes winners is about as serene as an Oklahoma tornado. The "Carpenters," the hottest vocal group in pop music today, are lauded as musicalsuperstars.

|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.|
