Opera Repeated For 2 Nites Turn-away crowds at the final productions of the music department's opera, "The Desert Song," last week pursuaded its directors to repeat the show Tuesday and Wednesday, Marcid 9-10, this week. Nearly 800 complimentary tickets to the production were given to faculty members and senior students of neighboring high schools this week, it was reported. Capacity audiences attended both nights. To Acquaint With VV. C. The free tickets were presented to high schools to acquaint them with the cultural features of Weber college, said Dr. Robert A. Clarke, dean of the Weber faculty. "These tickets were a good investment in good will and publicity for the college," he said. Enough tickets were reserved, however, to insure a good sale to the public, he added. Berna Goodwin and Junior Stokes took the leads in the Tuesday performance, while Marilyn Belnap and Don Becker were cast in the principal iroles Wednesday. Audiences present at all six productions of "The Desert Song" responded enthusiastically to the performances. Directors Delma'r Dickson, Roland Parry, and E. Carl Green expressed satisfaction with the six-night run. Suffered Deficit The Weber board of control, however, reported that the production had suffered a deficit only partially redeemed by the additional two nights' staging. The board figured an original receipt of $2000, later trimmed to 1500. While expenses of the opera ran to $1200, only $600 in receipts was reported after the first four productions, said treasurer Bert Corkey. Figures on receipts for the additional two nights were unavailable when the Signpost went to press.

Hundley's post as treasurer this month as Mr. Handley goes on a leave of absence, Dr. Henry Aldous Dixon announced this week. Dr. Foulger, the latest addition to the Weber faculty, will also take a position inthe teaching staff of the business department, said Dr. Dixon. He has had former teaching experience in Ogden high schools and at Weber college during 1945-46, and has recently served as sales supervisor for Wearever Aluminum Co., stated the Weber president. Dr. Foulger, a native Ogdenite, took his doctor's degree at Harvard university. "He possesses an excellent background of merchandising, retailing, and business experience," said Dr. Dixon. 'Sentiment High for Passage Says Veteran Weber Senator By Boyd Knowles "Sentiment runs high among the state legislators for passage of the Weber college deficit bill," stated State Senator J. Francis Fowles (D.-Weber) in an exclusive release to the Weber college Signpost this week. Results of the outcome of the bill this week were unavailable at the time the paper went to press. f Senator Fowles conducted an one orator and extempore speaker will journey to the regional Phi Rho Pi tournament in Winfield, Kansas, the week of March 22-26, it was revealed. The W. C. board of control recently voted a $550 addition to the debate budget for this trip and to cover expenses for the national meet, Mr. Monson stated. Publicity for the tournament commenced this week as the Pur-suader, official publication of Phi Rho Pi, announced the Weber cite to its national reading public. Pic tures of the Weber campus were featured, together with information about the contest, which will include competition in debate, oratory, extempore speaking, after-dinner speaking, and impromptu speaking. The college chapter of Phi Rho Pi has been organized since 1934. During this initial year Weber boasted the largest membership of any chapter in the nation, said Mr. Monson, who has served as first and second national vice president in previous years. "Any rating received by a contestant in a Phi Rho Pi competition applies to Pi Kappa Delta, national senior college forensic society," he stated. Mr. Monson revealed that judging of the tourney will be conducted similarly as the recent high school invitational speech meet, with Ogden townspeople and Weber speech students acting as judges. Some of the visiting speech coaches also will judge, he said. Braegger Appointed Business Manager Don Braegger, Weber college freshman, has been appointed business manager of Scribulus, quarterly magazine of contemporary writing published by the associated students of Weber college. Mr. Braegger was appointed by E. L. Christensen, business advisor to Scribulus, and confirmed unanimously by the board of control m their meeting last Monday, March 8. He is a veteran of world war two, and is majoring in business. unofficial survey among his fellow solons this week in response to a Signpost request. He reported that the legislature stood nearly unanimously for passage of the measure, which put Weber well into the black in regard to operating expenses. Discussed at Weber The deficit bill, proposing to appropriate funds to make up the loss the college suffered when the number of veterans expected to enroll this year failed to do so, was discussed during a meeting of six Weber county state senators and representatives with Dr. Henry Aldous Dixon, Weber president, Tuesday, March 2. The governor asked the session, which opened Monday, March 8, to reconsider general applications. Weber college was given permission to ask the special session of the legislature for a $108,000 appropriation.The state board of education Saturday, March 6, authorized Weber and three other state junior colleges to ask for a total of $149,-920 in additional appropriations after meetings in Ogden and Salt Lake City. Dr. E. Allen Bateman, state superintendent of public instruction, said the colleges need the addition al appropriations because oflow-er-than-anticipated veteran enrollments this year. Passes Resolution The board passed a resolution supporting submission of requests for $108,000 for Weber, $16,920 for Carbon college, $15,000 for Snow college, and $10,000 for Dixie college.The need arose because the legislature based its appropriations for the schools on estimates of income from student fees and tuition, and although total enrollment has not decreased, veteran enrollment has dropped. Veterans pay $201 for fees in contrast to $66 for non-veterans. May Hurt Activities Unless the funds are voted by the legislature, the junior colleges will be required to curtail their activities to an extent that their program would be "seriously" injured, Dr. Bateman stated. President Dixon has been in attendance at the legislature this week, keeping watch over the fortunes of the deficit bill while interest among faculty and student body ran high on the campus.

|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.|
