The cost of the educational bus ride and sightseeing tour has been advanced from the originally stated $200 to $225 plus tuition and pin money. This advance was made necessary due to reports of rising prices south of the border. Method of Payment The method of paying the $225 is as follows: A deposit of $50 must be made at the treasurer's office by May 7. Unless the first 60 on the list have made this payment or have made other satisfactory arrangements by that date, others lower on list will be moved up to fill the vacancies thus created. There is a waiting list of approximately 20 students. If circumstances should make it necessary for the student to withdraw after they have made the deposit these students will be able to get their money refunded up until June 5 after which only 50 per cent will be refunded. These regulations are necessary since supplies must be purchased in advance.The balance of the $225 will be due July 1. lteglster By June 16 Only students who register as regular summer school students on June 16 will be eligible to go. The $225 will include food, transportation, insurance and any inside sleeping that is necessitated.

Stuart Chase Famed Economist, Writer, Lecturer Talks Here Apr. 30 Stuart Chase Speech Will Conclude Mastermind Series Stuart Chase, noted writer, economist and lecturer, will appear in the Weber college auditorium April 30 at 8:30 p. m. for the final presentation of the Weber college mastermind series. Mr. Chase, neither a sensationalist or a conservative, because of his ability to analyze economic trends and political issues accurately and yet with informal humor and rare insight, probably has the greatest following among book-readers and lecture-goers than any other economist in the country. Clarified National Issues Among the books that Mr. Chase has written are, Idle Money, Idle Men, The Tragedy of Waste, Rich Land, Poor Land, Men and Ma chines, The Economy of Abundance, and his latest, Men at Work. All of these have helped to clarify American thinking on vital national issues. Besides books, Mr. Chase has written widely for magazines such as Harpers, Atlantic, Fortune, Reader's Digest, American, Cosmopolitan and New Republic. He recently wrote a series of short books for the Twentieth Century Fund of New York dealing with problems of employment, business, labor, agriculture, pressure groups, for eign trade and economic planning. American Background Stuart Chase's background is as American as his thinking. He was born in New Hampshire, attended public schools in Newton, Massachusetts, then went to the Massa chusetts Institute of Technology, and from there to Harvard, from where he graduated with Walter Lippman, Heywoud Broun, John Reed, and others who achieved widespread fame. Interviewed Stalin After Harvard, he joined his father's accounting and engineering firm in Boston, where he was awarded a CPA certificate. Then he went to Washington to join the food administration during World War I. Since then he has done consulting work for business, labor and government organizations. In Moscow, he interviewed Stalin for six hours with a delegation of American university and labor leaders. Students will be admitted to Mr. Chase's lecture upon presentation of student activity cards. Weber Plans Widening of Trade Class 250 Veterans Take Winter Course; Night Training Up Demand for trade training by returned veterans has taxed the capacity of the technical division to the utmost, announced L. E. Peterson, chairman, and as a result steps are being taken to expand the present facilities in order that additional veterans may obtain the kind of training desired. It is planned that beginning with the fall quarter several new departments will be added to the division. These will include watchmaking and jewelry work, Diesel mechanics, cosmotology, advanced refrigeration and several others as shop space is made available. During the winter quarter, continued Mr. Peterson, 205 students were registered for trade training in auto mechanics, machine shop, maintenance mechanics, auto body painting, refrigeration and air conditioning, industrial arts and carpentry. In addition there were approximately 350 on-the-job trainees enrolled in night school in clases related to the veterans' chosen field. Contemplated expansion will make additional related subjects available to these on-the-job trainees. Plans for the refrigeration de partment to move into one of the temporary buildings is receiving a great deal of interest, as this department has been crowded beyond capacity during all three quarters. As fast as additional shop space is available present departments will be enlarged to more fully accommodate the needs of each department. It is expected that every veteran who applies for vocational training will be able to find the kind of opportunity in which he is interested. Nine Coeds Tug For Annual Barnyard Title "Spring is the time of the year when everyone's thoughts turn some to love, but the majority to the Phoenix milking contest," according to Ross Powell, contest chairman.

It will be held Tuesday, April 22, in back of the Institute building immediately following the Phoenix assembly, Mr. Powell announced.

These trips are primarily for the geography of Utah and regular geology classes, but this year they are planning to cooperate with the biology department. Fall and winter quarter students in these classes and others interested should submit their names to Mr. Buss or Dr. Ross Hardy.

Miss Fanglesnap was referring to the A. M. S. beard-growing contest, taking place during the week of April 18-25. When advance reports of the contest seeped out, the women of the campus received the news with shaken emotions. The opinion stated by Miss Fanglesnap was one of the few heard above the rising storm of protest by the women. Shrieks of anguish were heard when it was discovered that there would be a fatigue and dungaree day on Wednesday. Feminine prayers urged the men to follow the advice of yore, "Take to the hills, men!" A premonition of things to come was fulfilled when the roving eye of the co-ed was caught by the coffee-strainers appearing on the camoflaged faces of the Dorian singers. It seemed inconceivable to the majority of the classy Several dozen youths got a -head start, with patches of weak whiskers appearing on dewy cheeks, submitting them to the strengthening rays of the sun. chassis of the campus that as boys, the men on the campus looked forward to the days when they could patronize razor companies. Then when the days got here, it was a rather cutting subject to be avoided whenever possible. Men Welcome News The men welcomed the news happily. Several stated they would like to grow in the contest, but their wives wouldn't let them. Several Casanovas, stated "No beards. Witnmen don't like them." Spade Coley, of the art department, said, "You may quote me as saying, 1 do not choose to run in the contest due to obvious circumstances beyond my power of control." William Bobolis expects the contest to be a thriving growing business. Consensus was that the contest presented a challenge and a stiff testing of the manhood of the campus. Several of the faculty expect to beat around the bush in their lectures. The beardless and the fuzzless declared they wouldn't come to school during the week and watch the other boys make five-o'clock shadows of themselves. Economic Catastrophe The effect of the catastrophe (In the minds of the coeds) was noticed in the outside world of Ogden. Sales of mascara are running high, and a reliable source of authority predicts a traffic in black marketing in the mascara trade. Sales of razor blades have fallen sharply, causing grave concern in steel circles. Dick Farr. president of A. M. S., announced there will be three divisions in the handicap. The first will be for the most growth. The second will be for the most uniquely cut. The junior division is for the longest fuzz. The purse (prizes) will be awarded during intermission of the A. M. S. dance, April 25. The judges will be coeds from the Weber campus. Petrich Expected History dent; Norma Manning, vice president; and Connie Reid, secretary.

Board of Control Rules Through many rules, the majority of which are classed as good, the present Board of Control is attempting and has attempted to put the campaigns on fair and level grounds so that any possible unfair advantage by some candidate will not occur. But regardless of the winners and regardless of the propaganda put forth by the various interests, it is hoped that the candidates elected can be unbiased in their consideration of Weber's problems and personalities next year and will rate the school as a whole above any petty club or organization politics. Final elections will be held on April 25 and will be preceded by a finalist campaign assembly on April 24. Weber Prof Officiates at Chem Meet Ralph Gray, professor of chemistry at Weber college, presented the speaker and officiated at the meeting of the Northwestern Utah section of the American Chemical Society, April 11, at the University of Utah. Mr. Gray is vice-chairman of the Utah section. Dr. Melvin G. Bowman, of the scientific laboratories at Los Alamos, New Mexico, was speaker. His discussion on the chemist in nuclear research included types of nuclear reaction, and nuclear thermo dynamics, artificial radio activity, instruments for detecting radio activity, and methods of production and yields of radio active elements. The American Chemical Society is the largest of its kind in the country, with a membership composed of 50,000 professional chemists and chemical engineers. Chemistry students may become affiliates upon payment of a fee. Students' day will be held at the monthly meeting in Logan, May 17. Students will present original research papers 10-12 minutes in length on organic, biochemical, physical, inorganic and analytical chemistry. This will be followed by a baseball game and a picnic. All Weber College science students are invited to attend. The society publishes many technical journals and magazines on chemistry such as the Journal of Chemical Education, available at Weber's library, and Chemical Abstracts, a digest of all the chemicals of industry and engineering in foreign countries as well as our own.

|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.|
