Mr. Hughes, a native of Jop- lin, Missouri, has spoken before college and club groups and on public platforms throughout the United States and Canada. He has also spken to public audiences in Cuba and Haiti and appeared on the Town Meeting cf the air with Carey McWilliams, John Temple Graves Jr., and Dr. William H. Sheppard. Millions heard them when they discussed the subject "Let's Face the Race Question." I National attention was first i brought to his work when Vachel Lindsay read three of his poems in 1925. Thus, Mr. Hughes has become a very prolific writer. He has received many awards, medals, and fellowships since he began his writing career. , The develoDment of American ! Negro literature is one of his main interests and he also is doing as much as possible toward the encouragement of literary ability among colored writers. Langston Hughes was chosen by the historian, Dr. House Knocking Down Activity A toad, rumored to have hern encased in the brickwork of the Hirt apartment when it was erected early in the century, has not yet been discovered, according to Yerleen Gren. left, and Patricia .Madsen, Weber coeds who investigated in the in terest of science.

Beard, as one of the 25 "most interesting personages with a socially conscious attitude."His articles, stories, and poems have appeared in a dozer, national magazines, and his work has been translated into French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, German, Dutch and other languages. Among his books of poems are "The Weary Blues," "Shakespeare in Harlem," a novel, "Not Without Laughter," a short story, "The Ways of White Folks," and an autobiography, "The Big Sea." To express the opinion of the race question Mr. Hughes says, "In spite of this, our democracy is so big and flexible and has such fine qualities that the American Negroes are the outstanding group in the world. Democracy is growing all the time and people of good-will cdn help it grow bigger and better and correct the defects. It is not a problem of white against black, but of reactionaryanti-demo-cractic people against people of good will, while r black," Mr. Hughes writes a weekly J column, "Here to Yonder" in t the Chicago Defender, and his ' stories have been syndicated by Continental Features. The subjects Mr. Hughes will speak on are "Poems of Negro Life," "Color Around the World," "Negro poets of the Caribbean." The Boston Transcript wrote abut him, "Full of racial rhythm and melody." The Dallas Herald Reporter, William Russell Clark, said, "Langston Hughes has made a real contribution to American poetry." NOTICE!

Clarke, director itl vocational education, announced Tuesday that the on ihe job training for veterans has )eert approved in 39 occupations, including public accountants, automechanlc, mortician, radio broadcasting, and many others. This training enables the vet-eran to learn a job at the linn during the day and attend college at night. This plan is io the veteran's advantage, points out Dr. Clarke, since he may receive subsistence under the (; i bill of rights and also his apprentice wage. There are 172 firms in Ogden which have received approval ,o train under this plan. 1'wenty-five more companies are pend ing approval. An average of eigh firms per week are seeking approval. Since each on-the-job training plan approved necessitates the apprentice coming to night school, the facilities of certain departments are being taxed io meet demands. Before a firm is approved it is inspected to make sure that adequate equipment and qualified instructors are available. The firm also submits a plan listing the description of the cccupa lion, the length of training, and a wage schedule listing amounts to be paid the apprentice. We ber college is assisting the state department of education in approving the firms.

|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.|
