Opera Tenor Impresses Music Fans By Bill Bobolis Concert fans were undoubtedly impressed with the performance of John Carter, famous Metropolitan Opera tenor Monday night. The exceedingly handsome and young-looking gentleman received enthusiastic applause from his audience which resulted in some tricky en cores. Along with his version of "Short-nin' Bread," he entertained the people with a little sashaying of his own on the side. All of the numbers sung were songs mostly well known and liked by the public, and with the smooth, effortless style of singing, the capturing smile, along with the black wavy hair, the lyric tenor made it possible for the people to sit back in their seats and relax (not sleep). With amazingly clear diction and a few actions even the twangy French songs were interpreted. Accompanist Appreciated Mr. McDonald, the pianist, was also very much appreciated by the audience, and besides being piano accompanist he joined in with Mr. Carter with -a little singing and also played the part of sound ef fects man during the Ttonkey Serenade" number. . Regardless of the "feeling zero" weather it seems as though half of Ogden had turned out to hear Mr. CarteT and get a rare treat. All seats were occupied and there were even a few lucky people standing in the aisles' (lucky, that is, because they didn't have to try to see by peeping over the sides and tops of the new fall hat creations.) I only feel sorry for the few early birds who couldn't stay to hear all of the encores, but the more ardent music lovers were well repaid by their good manners. DIRECTS PLAY Fall Concert Monday Night Musettes, Dorians In Performance The Weber college music department will open its schedule of concerts Monday November 17 with the annual Fall Concert, according to Delmar Dickson, director of the college band. The concert will be held in the college auditorium beginning at 8:00. Featuring Soloists Features of the concert will be the college band, orchestra, the college choir, the Dorian Singers and the Musettes along with several impressive soloists. A well-rounded program has been scheduled in cluding numbers from Roland Parry's compositions. "We feel that attendance at the concert will be well rewarded in an increased appreciation of the things the college -has to offer in the musical line," commented Mr. Dickson. Other music department instructors taking part in the event are Roland Parry, Clair W. Johnson, and J. Clair Anderson. The num bers by Mr. Parry are from his Christmas oratorio which will this year be performed in the Mormon tabernacle in Salt Lake City.

Tickets Tickets for the concert may be obtained free of charge at Glen Brothers Music company or at the college treasurer's office. Mr. Dickson cautioned that tickets should be secured early since a large crowd is anticipated. 'Male Animal' Well-Received By Enthusiastic Audience By Paul Ginsberg "The Male Animal," first production of the Ogden Community Theatre's 1947-48 season, played before a packed and enthusiastic house last night in the first performance of a three-night run in the Weber college auditorium. Displaying little of the stiffness-f- common to first-night presentations, the cast of "The Male Animal" turned in a creditable and smooth-flowing performance which delighted the audience. Theater-goers who missed last night's production may witness the play tonight or tomorrow night, November 14 or 15, at the colloge auditorium in its final two performances. Directed By Kelly The comedy, directed by John G. Kelly, was written by James Thur-ber, noted American wit, and Elliot Nugent. Its more than slightly impossible, but thoroughly delightful, plot concerns an "eternal triangle" developing around a college professor, his wife, and a football player. These principals are played by Dean Thueson, who portrays Professor Tommy Turner; Marylou Roberts, who plays his wife; and Jim Hayden, cast as Joe Furguson. Other cast members include, Frank Johnson, Jane Ann Slater, Bob Daniels, Phyllis Parker, J. R. Allred, Robert Van Dyke, Luacine Pingree, LaMar Larsen, John Shorten, and Mrs. Arthur Grix. Assisting Mr. Kelly in the direction of the play is Avice Mathias, former Weber college student. Marilyn Mills heads the properties department, while Max Parker handles lighting. Tickets for "The Male Animal" are still available for the remaining two performances. They may be purchased at either the Weber college registrar's office or at Glen Brothers Music . Co. General admission is $1, but Weber students will find their student body activity cards honored at the door. W. C. students may also obtain reserve seats upon presentation of activity cards in advance of performances.Season Tickets Available Seasonal membership tickets to the Community Theatre are still available at $2.50. The Community Theatre presentations are produced jointly by the Weber college student and the Ogden City Recreation department. The group has scheduled two other major" productions this season; "The Silver Cord," by Sidney Howard, to be presented in February, and "Christopher Blake," slated for April. In addition, the Community Theatre will again sponsor the annual one-act play festival. To be presented in March, the festival will feature plays produced by various groups in Ogden. At John G. Kelly Band to Leave For California Members of the Weber college band will leave on Wednesday, November 19, for Pasadena, California, to accompany the Wildcat football squad in their contest with the Pasadena Junior college Bulldogs to be played in the famed Rose Bowl on November 21, according to Delmar Dickson, director.Approximately 60 members of the band will make the trip to Pasadena in chartered busses to play at the game and in a college assembly at Pasadena. The members of the band will be accommodated at several downtown Los Angeles hotels and will take advantage- of their stay in that city to see all the famed sights that Los Angeles and southern California have to offer including such wonders as Hollywood.The band will return to Ogden Sunday along with the Whip club who will make the trip also. Mr. Dickson commented that the trip is only an adequate reward for the work the members of the band in supporting the college's athletic schedules. Astronomer To Speak At College Weber college presents astronomer Harry G. Johnson of the Brown Foundation in a planetarium-type astronomy lecture at the college auditorium on Tuesday evening, November 18. With picture and apparatus on the stage, Mr. Johnson will give an up-to-the-minute picture of modern astronomy, using the technique of the planetarium manner. Photographs taken with the largest telescopes of America will carry the audience deeper and deeper into the outer darkness of space, until finally the distant region of the hurtling "red-shift galaxies" is discussed. Photographs Shown Mr. Johnson's collection of moon photographs is considered by many authorities to be one of the finest in the United States. These photographs, the work of many of America's leading astronomers, become , more interesting on the screen through the use of the electric pointer, a device used to point out important mountain peaks, craters and lava beds. Among the famous points on the moon that will come up for discussion are the famous Alpine Valley, Grand Canyon of the Moon; the giant craters of Tycho, Coperincus and Plato; the vast lunar lava beds; the mysterious crater of Wargentin, the one crater out of the 30,000 visible on the moon which is different from all the rest. The purpose of the lecture will be to offer the public a brief and interesting picture of the science of the great sky overhead. BOYS' CHOIR ON CONCERT The Boy's Town choir will be featured on the next Community Concert program November 22 at the Ogden high school auditorium, Stuart P. Dobbs, Ogden Community Concert chairman, announced this week. The 40-voice choir from Boy's Town, Nebraska, will be under the direction of Father Schmidt.

|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.|
