Eac!i of the men's organizations on the campus will select ac andidate to run in the contest and the contestants will be presented and judged on Friday. Vended Voices Vitality - Vigor Carol Jean Vendell is sincerely grateful for the support given her in the primary election. We feel that she is qualified for the office of student body vice-president. She has maintained a 2.6 grade average and has had several successes in the field of writing. Her one-act play, "Fire in The Night", won first place in a national contest in Chicago last summer, and she was awarded an honorable mention in short story from last year's Scholastic Awards in which 110,000 students participated. She plays the piano and can paint anything from a s-ign of "Keep Off the Grass" to an oil painting of peach blossoms. During winter quarter, Carol was appointed to fill the vacated office of AWS reporter because of her activity on the council. If elected vice-president, she will do all that she can for a "Greater Weber College", for she feels that Weber has done much for her.

Just Browsing By CAL LUCY It seems that I browsed foo much in the last issue of our illustrious "fishwraoner". so vour demon's brain convulsion for todatr is fretting down to facts pnd figures in this article. Mostlv fip-nres! Weber's collegiate wmners must have a Coltrate smile, nlns a "Carte bin n ch em to be b m u s i n g on an v subject. I thought th smile woM be enough but mv ONE READER has told me that I ws wrong. Per-hnns fare Hftine- will hejn? Fae1 lifting Is an old ladle business: it makes their daughters look older thnn their mother! T would like to eet a few things off mv chest in this issue. Several of our fellow students claim that this oaoer is being used as a tool for politicians. This is definitely not our poliev. and this column never was and never will be used n-s such a tool. Mv oninions on politics were exnressed in the best humor that T could muster my senses to call on. (Seems they were full of mustard, eh!) All voters must remember that Weber's prexv for 1947-1948 must ho a man who will nav you back wi t.h a barrel of flou r eve rvt i me vou give him a biscuit. We want a man who doesn't count his friends, hut one who has too manv to count. I claim all politicians are crooked but thev should, at least, split 0-50 with their voters and miblicitv directors! Our beloved victory bell hfln't been ringing since theWeher-Mn-esto football game when it brok its ankle on the long, hazardousiou--nev to the stadium November 16 19J. W-tch out. folks, or th bell will s t n rt h au n ti n g you in your dreams ! "Flew into the gvm building last Fridav afternoon to see what the boys who live by the ballot box were doing. They were busy as us ual passing voting slips out to us guys and gals, like hot biscuits at a country farm house . . . Snowed under by the lobbyist and couldn't see the ground at all!" 1947 Number 16 Prexy Men Voice Views Burton Slates Diligence, Petrich Pledges Unity Laurence Burton, candidate for president of Associated Students of Weber College is a veteran of the naval air corps. He served as a radioman-gunner in that branch of the service. Supporters of Burton claim that he can stand on his own record of past service in student affairs and that he is independent of all political affiliations and entanglements.Prior to his induction into the service he attended Weber college for one quarter on a scholarship. It was during this period that he was elected president of the freshman class in 1944, a member of the Board of Control and he also served as Superintendent of the Institute Sunday School. Laurence hails from Ogden high school, where he was elected president of the senior class and where he captured state titles in debate and oratory. This year at Weber he has made a name for himself by his active participation in school activities. He is chairman of the assembly committee and served as the only student member on the Weber college expansion legislative committee together with local business men and faculty members who attempted to get the state legislature to authorize a four-year college for Ogden. If elected president, Laurence states that he will do all he can to further the four-year college movement, even though a bill authorizing an enlarged college wHl not be able to be introduced until 1949, when the state legislature meets again. It will be necessary to keep interest alive among the students and townspeople next year so that when 1949 arrives the machinery will be ready to function. Social Scientists Hold Lectures Dr. Laurence Bee, of the USAC, started the Weber college Sociology club lecture series Monday evening with a talk on "Personality in Family Relations." Dr. Bee, who is a professor of family relations at Utah State, was introduced by Walter C. Neville of the Weber college social sciences department and will be followed by several other lecturers and authorities on social problems. Next scheduled lecture will be on April 28 on the topic of "You and Heredity", Dr. Orson Whitney Mark Petrich, President Laurence Burton, President Carol Jean Vendell, Vice-Pres. Jane Ann Slater, Vice-Pres Shirley Chambers, Secretary Diane Hunsaker, Secretary Bert Corkey, Treasurer Frank Blair, Treasurer Larry Williamsen, Bus. Mgr. Winn Richards, Bus. Mgr. - The Weber college student body has consistently made exacting demands of its officers. A premium is placed upon such all-important qualities as candor, dependability, mipartiality, competence, and the genuine desire to promote the welfare of the institution as a whole. Mark Petrich qualifies on every count. Mark is the sincere sort who considers important matters diligently and with sufficient attention to render an intelligent decision. Mark looks before he leaps! His actions are motivated by the desire to further the best interests of the school and while he is affiliated, he isn't club conscious at the expense of the "Weber family." Mark is adequately serious when the situation requires, but at the same time he does possess an infectious sense of humor that is at once both appreciative (Mark can laugh at the same joke twice) and original. He possesses the innate faculty for injecting a note of pleasantry into business matters. Mark is an ex-gyrene who participated in two major operations in the Pacific Theater. He was discharged in October and came home with a couple of stripes to his credit. Mark has this to say about the office, "My desire is to work for and with the Associated Students of Weber College in achieving a harmony of function, unity of purpose, and furtherance of those activities which promote better school government."Young of the Weber college biological sciences division will be the speaker. Parley Kilburn of the state industrial school will speak on May 5 and Mrs. Melba Judge will speak on May 12. Tickets to the lectures may be secured from any member of the club and entitle the purchaser to attendance in the remainder of the series. Officers of the club, aside from Mr. Neville, who is adviser, are Le-Grant Shreeve, president; James Osmond, vice president; Connie Reid, secretary, and Darlene Me-dell, reporter. Lowell Manfull and Cleone Randall comprise the lecture committee.

|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.|
