The money available for the first year of this three year educational program will total $196,440. The total costs will cover the grant period of 1975-1979.

The event is being planned for Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. A different format for this concert is being planned, said Robin Jeppson, communications vice president. She said he will perform in a pillow concert in the Union Building ballroom rather than the more formal Fine Arts Center. Students should be prepared to bring pillows and sit on the floor. Jeppson said, "A pillow concert is something we haven't had. It's good, it's informal and it's different," she added. Tickets will sell for $2.50 with a student I.D. and $3 without. Jeppson said the reason tickets were so reasonable was because "we want everybody to come to this concert. It ought to be a lot of fun and it will be a good concert," she added. Loggins has recorded several albums and has become known for such songs as "Someday" and "Girl From Knoxville." According to Ray Myers, coordinator of student activities, "Tickets should go on sale about Feb. 12 at the main desk in the Union Building. Money for the Loggins concert was approved by Executive Council in an earlier council meeting. He was approved upon recommendation of the Concerts Committee under Jeppson for the winter quarter concert. Ogden,Utah 84403 Monson approved bond use in Dee Center construction One of two problems facing the construction of the Dee Events Center has been solved as Utah State Auditor David S. Monson gave his approval for the issuance of $3.9 million in bonds. The funds are necessary to help finance the construction of the events center. There was some question as to Weber's ability to repay the money. Consequently approval of the bonds was withheld temporarily. Monson released a statement on Wednesday, stating the information "will not be necessary." Monson said this after he said he is satisfied that incomes 'ofth'e"" college are able to meet repayment of the bond issue. He said $42,000 is needed annually. Dr. James R. Foulger, business vice president of the WSC said the college will have $803,000 annually to meet repayment obligations under the bonding program. The second problem, regarding the use of state funds to meet maintenance and other costs connected with structures built with bond money are still under consideration pending an opinion from the state attorney general. This decision will affect all the state's institutions of higher 'Stone' bids finalized y Bidding will be finalized and the printer chosen on Feb. 11 for First Stone, said Dave Rich, coordinator of student government. Once the bidding is completed the First Stone staff under Rick Baker can begin working on that publication. Baker, formerly editor of the now defunct Cognito was selected to edit First Stone after submitting low estimates for printing to Executive Council. First Stone was previously under the direction of the Signpost. First Stone will contain artwork, poetry, photography, and short stories. The work will be reviewed by a screening committee, Baker said during a media board meeting. Another change Baker proposed in the meeting was that First Stone be printed on magazine paper rather than on newsprint. The final deadline for First Stone has been designated as Feb. 17. Students desiring to submit material to First Stone can take it to Dave Rich's office in the Student Activities Center. Variable clouds today with warmer temperatures and a decreasing chance of snow. Highs today in the lower 40's. There will be light winds. learning. It has been common practice over the years to use state funds for such purposes. Bonding for construction of the center was stopped on Jan. 28 when it was learned Monson had requested an opinion on the use of state funds. He also asked for additional information regarding Weber State's repayment program during sessions with college administrative officials. Foulger had said earlier that there was no problem with repayment insofar as the college was concerned. "We are in good shape and the bonds have been given an 'A' rating by the nation's leading bond rating firm," he said. The Utah Board of Regents accepted a bid for issuance of the bonds to partially finance the $7.1 million facility. College officials report another $3.9 million has been donated in gifts or is available from student fees and other income. The legal opinion will have a bearing on almost all institutions of higher learning in the state. State funds have been used to service and maintain buildings constructed under bonding programs for many years.

|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.|
