He said a couple of thieves had been caught due to student help and they had recovered many paintings and signs taken from the Union Building. Hit and run accidents are the biggest problem, according to Carver. He said a lot of cars get hit when a student backs into a stall. He said "many of the cars found damaged have obviously been hit by someone backing into the stall." His staff has begun issuing tickets to cars found College may expect growth Utah's higher education institutions will experience enrollment increases during the immediate years ahead because of in-migration of young people to the state and industrial growth.

Carver said the number of accidents have been reduced this year. Carver said he didn't know why they had been reduced. He added the amount of damage done to cars was also down and there were no real severe accidents. There were no injuries reported to them as yet either. He said there were more complaints on tickets than anything else. His comment on this was "many people park in unimproved areas and feel they don't need a decal, however the rules say that to park anywhere on campus, a decal is needed." He said the security police were willing to help students. They start a number of cars legislators and heads of municipal government, banks and financial institutions and businesses. The officials gathered at Weber State College to hear the talk about Utah's economic outlook upon invitation of WSC President Joseph L. Bishop. Dr. Robson said that despite estimates of the Utah Board of Regents that declines in enrollment in higher education would be experienced, mainly due to the lower birth rate, his studies indicate an enrollment increase during the next decade of around 50,000 students. This upward enrollment trend is already being experienced among Utah's colleges and universities, he said. He said the lower birth rate would be offset by the migration into Utah of younger people, plus growths in Internship forms available; due now Today is the deadline for applications for students who wish to serve as interns in the Utah State Legislature's 1975 session. Application forms are available at the Political Science department office, Social Science 282. Full time interns will be expected to devote all of their time to the job and will be paid a stipend of $200 a month. Part time interns are expected to spend 12 hours a week on their duties and receive no pay. Credit is available for both types of internships. Dr. Jean White, coordinator of the program, emphasized that any student who has a background of knowledge and activity in politics and government is eligible. Students who are chosen as interns will be assigned to individual legislators, committee chairmen or a research pool and will be serving in January and February. every week and they average taking three students a week to the hospital, he added. Carver voiced concern over girls who get into cars without knowing the person. He said girls should be watchful of anyone suspicious. He added, "If we can help a student in getting a ride, we will be happy to try, but we don't want anyone accepting a ride from a stranger." He said students are of a higher caliber than ever before.

Utah's unique position in having an abundant coal and other fossil fuel supply will coax new industry into the state, with the resulting increase in the tax base, the speaker said. In answer to questions, Dr. Robson predicted that Weber State is in a very promising position to realize a considerable enrollment growth because the college provides both traditional courses and technical education. I expect Weber State to be in the best position to supply trained students for the state's growing industry and other aspects of the economy, he declared. President Bishop commented it is refreshing to hear Dr. Robson 's optimistic comments on the economy and its future in view of the "gloom and doom" talk prevailing elswhere in the state and nation.

|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.|
