C. stage after a well received first-night performance Thursday, April 29. The production, last of the Weber college-Ogden community theater 1947-48 season, is the largest and most extensive attempted on the Weber stage for many years, and Hardy to Address Meeting Tomorrow Dr. Ross Hardy of the Weber life sciences department will head a symposium entitled "Conservation Problems" at the annual meeting of the Utah Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters, Saturday, May 1, at the University of Utah. Dr. Hardy, who acts as chairman of the conservation committee, will address the group at the conclusion of the discussion. Dr. O. W. Young, head of the W. C. life science division, is also a member of the committee. NOTICE OUR 'NEW LOOK' The attention of readers who have not already noticed it is drawn to the Signpost's new nameplate. The new device replaces the former nameplate criticized by the Associated Collegiate Press critical service, which recently handed the Signpost Its second consecutive AU-American award. The old nameplate, said ACP, is "skillfully drawn, but its ornate design is not In harmony with the functionalism of your streamlined typography." Since the Signpost staff has its eye on an even higher rating, replacement was decided upon. The new nameplate, drawn by Pete Lafon, is available in two-three, and five-column sizes, and will be employed in all future issues of the paper. flSMIP Teen Csuradln Few Honors Presented, Says Group Less than twenty students will receive "Outstanding" awards In accordance to stringent requirements this year, and persons to receive this award have been carefully screened and examined. This year the awards will be more valuable than any ever given before at Weber college, said Charles Osmond, chairman of the awards committee. The students to receive the "Outstanding" awards have been chosen by the committee and have been measured for cardigan sweaters with appropriate symbols of the activities in which they have been selected. Mr. Osmond requested sponsors (Conk on Page S, Col. 5) its cast of 40 have certainly made it one of the best. The ten stage settings used in the production represent a minor masterpiece on the part of director John Kelly's play production class, and the rapid transition from one to another adds much to the effectiveness of the play. The theme of "Christopher Blake" that of the tragedy of a young boy faced with the dilemma of choosing between his mother and father when they are divorced is treated in an ingenius mixture of fantasy and fact. Opening with a fanciful setting of the White House, with the 12-year old Christopher receiving acclaim from President Truman and assorted generals, admirals, newspapermen, and crowds, the production traces in alternate scenes the fanciful wanderings of a small boy's mind in his attempt to solve the problem confronting him and escape the terrible burden his parents have thrust upon him. Some are wild flights of fancy into a world where he receives the acclamation of important personages, while others take him into the depths of terror which he inwardly feels toward the situation in which he has been placed by his parents' actions. Jervis Anderson, Central high student, takes the lead part of Christopher, and is well supported by Robert Van Dyke as Mr. Blake and Mrs. Margaret Berkin as Mrs. Blake. Other cast members include Bert Corkey, Lowell Manful, Merlin Sor-enson, Bill Carpenter, Thyne Harris, Bill Nash, Kent Foutz, Haynes Fuller, Don Linford, Owen Thompson, Fern Stoddard, Ester Linford, Bill Terry, and Ernie Kennedy, plus a number of others lending support for the crowd scenes. Prompter is Nancy Beach. Tickets for the play, which will conclude its three-night run tomorrow, Saturday, May 1, are still available at Glen Bros. Music Co., and the Weber college treasurer's office.

|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.|
