In LAJ 11 U n Vandalism plagues college UB "Vandalism? We don't know whether to call it that or just horse play," said 'Union Director Farrell Shepherd, as he talked about the broken windows in the-Union Building. Shepherd said that two of the incidences could be explained as "horseplay or carelessness" but added that the most recent break, located on the west side of the Union Building was thought to be vandalism and was reported to security police on campus. Shepherd remained cautious in reference to the word "vandalism," however, he mentioned that different office items had been "borrowed." "Things like room numbers, signs taken from the restrooms and no smoking signs are particularly popular," he added. Student misuse Shepherd stated that sometimes legs of tables and chairs had to be replaced in the Union Building lounge because of student misuse but commented further that he could hardly consider such misuse as vandalism. Commenting further Shepherd stated that students who occupied the union building had taken pretty good care of it, and he saw no "tearing down" of the building. Asked whether or not the most recent broken window was due to vandalism, Police chief William. Carver stated that in this case it definitely was. The window is surmised to have been broken late Saturday night after a local high school group sponsored a stomp in the Union Building. Carver stated that his beliefs were that high school students were involved and not Weber State College students. "The problem is that people think Weber State College is state property and think that they can set their kids loose up here." High school students "We talked to three high school students last Saturday night in connection with this. Their parents called us, Joseph Bishop called us; we generally have to pay hell to talk to these kids," he continued.One of the major problems Carver ciled in the vandalism situation was that too many of the studenlbody had keys and stated that this made it harder for security. Carver stated that overall, vandalism has been extremely low at Weber State College. i ' ' , .

Plans are currently underway to stage a nostalgia week later this quarter. According to Student Activities Vice-President, Mike Stevers, the problem thus far has been finding a week which does not conflict with other previously scheduled events on campus. Much of the week's activities will focus on the '50s. A recreation of the McCarthy Trials, based upon the communist hunts of the early 1950s spearheaded by Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Minnesota. In the WSC version students will be put on trial for current Unamerican activities. Monkey trials will be the order of the day, but all will be in fun. Super "greasy" A super ' 'greasy" '50 dance will also be held. Students will be encouraged to dress in the style of the era with the men slicking their hair back and rolling their cigarrettes up in the sleeve of their long sleeve white shirts. Women will be expected to wear mid-calf skirts and bobbi socks. Trivia buffs will be treated to a contest to test their talents. Contestants might be required to answer such questions as "who sang the hit song "Teen Angel." Or they may be expected to reel Off the height oPthe Empire State Building in the twinkling of an eye-in feet. It should prove quite interesting to see how scholars of higher education fare concerning knowledge of the insignifigant. Insomniacs have not been left out either. An all night movie festival will be featured during nostalgia week. Alfred Hitchcock and the Roadrunner will be featured performers along with many other stars of the past. Students can bring their sleeping bags and prepare to sack out for the night watching flicks of "YesterYear." Planning Stages Nostalgia week is still in the planning stages as of now. The special week at Weber is one of many that has sprung to life on college campuses throughout the country. In recent months there has been quite a revival of the past prompting even Buffalo Bob Smith and his Howdy Doody entourage to come out of retirement. Stevers hopes to generate .enough student support, interest and enthusiasm to make the week of the past a real success and make it an annual event. "We were pleased with the success of Spring Fever Week last spring and hope that the students will react in a similar way to our new project. We hope this week will become an annual event just as Spring Fever Week is now an annual thing," said Stevers.

|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.|
