The resolution met with some dissent centering around a clause which stated students on the tenure committees would remain anonymous except to the department chairman and the Academic Assembly. This resulted in the adoption of the resolution minus the anonymity clause. Alan Dayley, administrative assistant to the president, pointed out the legal implications involved in keeping the students anonymous. Doug Young, Academic Assemblyman representing the School of Social Sciences and co-sponsor of the bill, presented it to the Senate, saying he realized that if a professor were to appeal a tenure decision in court, the names would come out. He said this clause was a surface clause. He added the assembly could orient students desiring to serve on the tenure committees that they would remain anonymous unless there was an appeal. He said the clause was meant to give students "no false sense of anonymity." Ordinarily anonymous Dr. T. R. Reddy, professor of political science, suggested an Bank gives athletes money; skiing scholarships get funds The Commercial Security Bank has presented Weber State President Joseph L. Bishop with a check totaling $5,000 as a contribution to the athletic programs of the college. One thousand dollars of the amount is allocated for the development of the skiing program of the college. An additional $1,000 is given annually as scholarships in the School of Business and Economics by the banking firm. "We are proud to recognize Weber State College as one of the most important and progressive industries in the area," said bank president Richard K. Hemingway, in making the gift. "The importance of the college to the cultural and economic amendment to the clause which would read "students would ordinarily remain anonymous." Young said he would accept that as a friendly amendment. Dr. Donald Moorman, professor of history, said the resolution depended on the integrity of the department chairman. He said the chairman may not be aware of a student one his co-workers were in favor of. He added sometimes the chairman's opinion is not best. Young said the students would be juniors or seniors and would therefore be familiar with most of the instructors in the department. He pointed out any professor the student was not familiar with could be checked out by talking with other students of that major. Dr. Jerry Borup questioned the clause delaing with the number of students serving on the committee. He said three students was not enough students in some departments. ' Young accepted an amendment stating three to five students would serve instead of just three. Dr. Richard Sadler, chairman of the Executive Committee of the Senate, said the resolution stated three members because development of Northern Utah cannot be over emphasized and we are happy to assist in programs of merit," he said. Frank Francis, CSB senior vice president and chairman of the college Institutional Council, pointed out the many contributions of the college to the community. "The city of Ogden and the surrounding area has received national recognition through athletic successes of the college as well as academic, cultural and other activities," he said. "Present and future scheduling with athletic powers in the state and nation will require additional funds, more scholarships and increased community support in order for the college to maintain the tenure doctrine calls for three. Against clause Dr. Thomas R. Burton, professor of English, said he was against the clause on anonymity. He said it reflected on the integrity of the faculty at large. He said there had never been an anonymity of the faculty as shown in the faculty evaluation. He proposed the clause be eliminated. Ed Walker, assemblyman representing the school of Natural Science, said in his opinion the students would show genuine interest. He said he saw the clause as a protection for students. He commented he had talked to students about serving on the tenure committees and their concern was "my future in the department." He said they had some hesitations to speak against a professor. Dr. Kiyotoshi Iwamoto, professor of economics, said tenure was important. He said student advise was heavily considered and as a consequence the students should accept responsibility for their decisions regarding tenure. The amendment to remove the clause passed and then the motion to accept the resolution passed. a creditable showing." "The number of scholarships available places Weber State at a considerable disadvantage not only in the big Sky Conference, but in competing with state and nationally recognized teams." Francis stated. President Bishop, in accepting the gift, expressed appreciation to the bank and the Hemingway Foundation who have contributed more than $50,000 to the college over the past few years. "We are grateful for such indications of community support I consider such interest as an expression of confidence for the maintenance of a strong athletic program benefiting not only the players but the college and community as well."

|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.|
