Bishop stated that the rotation of deans of all the other schools including the division of Continuing Education, will be effective June 1 of the current year. Anticipated reply Bishop anticipated reply from the audience and stated that "this no way implied that the people haven't done a tremendous job" but stated that for Weber State's future would be a push ahead. Bishop said also that deans who would be rotated as of June 1 would be given significant jobs. Bishop stated that he was not interested in making work or jobs for people just to keep them busy, but rather that he was interested in the growth and development of Weber as a College. Bishop said that the Administration along with the faculty should try to sit down, organize and reason together and come up with ideas for "What is best for the student" and not let the power struggle go on.

|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.|
