Photo by Dave Barrett Collins nets 31 to shatter Big Sky By Guy Yocom Bruce Collins' performance against Idaho State Saturday was better than average, but what Collins achieved on the side put him in the record books for a long time to come. The 6-5 senior guard, who has tnrilled Ogdenites for almost four years with his gifted brand of basketball, emerged as the top career scorer in Big Sky Conference history with his 1,934 point coming early in the second half. Weber State fans roared their approval of the momentous achievement, which Bruce acknowledged with a face-splitting grin and a wave to the crowd. It was Collins' evening all the scoring way. The lanKy guard, wno rebounds well for a backcourt man, grabbed eight caroms, made five steals, dished out a couple of assists and scored a game-high 30 points. He electrified the crowd with a splendid behind the head dunk in the second half. For his big achievement, the game was stopped and Collins was presented with a large portrait of himself dunking the ball. The well-oiled , Wildcat basketball machine had more than enough cogs working to stop Idaho State, incidentally. With the conference regular season title already under its belt, the Webes relied on pride to get them through the ritual with the record Bengals, who dropped to 5-9 in conference play and 9-17: for the year. Weber hit 34 of 62 shots Trom the field, including Collins' deadly 14-21 shooting from the floor. The Wildcats turned a little flat in the second half to allow the Bengals to creep within five points, but Weber State came alive and put' the game on ice soon thereafter. David Johnson was the only other Wildcat in double figures with 22 points, but Richard Smith and Gerald Mattinson had nine and eight points, respectively. Wewr will get its third straight championship bid underway Friday when it meets Montana State in the Dee Center at 9 p.m.

|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.|
