J5 37th St. u w JJlkLAi U U Lilly IIlLiu UWliU Uu NO. 1 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1949 Football Hop To Follow Grid Tussle Immediately after the football game tonight, loyal We-berites will attend what they hope to term a "Victory Polka" in the College ballroom. But, win or lose, Glendale and Wildcat teams and their supporters will mingle 'mid the( music of Jiggs Van Linburg's orchestra at Weber College's opening dance. Jiggs Van Linburg's orchestra has just completed a successful season at the Ogden Golf and Country Club. This will be the first of a series of after-game,' sports dances reigned over by Jo Ann Milnar, football queen, and her attendants, Gwsn Fronk and Janice Page. General admission charge will be 50 cents a person. However, student body cards will be honored. "The dance will not start until there has been sufficient time for students to arrive from the ball park," explained Don Soelberg, student body president, who hopes that his fellow classmates will all come to support their school both at the game and at the dance. This will be a student body dance and will be under the direction of the student body officers; Don Soelberg, Peggy Wood, Joan Crawford, Dee Jacobs, and Neil Hess. Debaters 'Briefed' For Busy Season An excellent debating season is in progress for one of th largest class enrollments in several years at Weber college. I Approximately 30 students will participate in the debate program trying to uphold the record of the last two years. During this time Weber has won many honors, national first place in debate, two national first places in extemporaneous speaking, and two national first places in impromptu speaking. Also Weber won first place In the McMinnivile, Oregon debating tournament with 52 schools competing. Among these were the Brigham Young University, University of Utah, and the Utah State Agricultural college. The student body board of control has provided funds for four out of state trips plus expenses for debating which will be held in our own state. The debaters plan their first trip in November, perhaps to Pueblo, Colorado. Also plans are in order to organize and strengthen the Utah Alpha Chapter of Phi Rho of which Arvin Shreeve is president. This National Junior College forensic organization has been established on Weber college campus since 1934. Any student may become a member but he must fill certain requirements which include debating with three other schools and presenting several public speeches. VOL. 13 Loyalty High Dixon Lauds The report came to me that' every student body ticket was presented at the football game last Friday, except five. This report might be a bit inaccurate but it is not far from the facts. Attendance upon the football games may not be a yardstick by which student spirit and loyalty can be measured but it is to some extent, a barometer by which any marked rise or fall in student spirit can be detected. The support for the game was no greater than the support given to the assemblies, for the splendid outdoor party Monday September 19, where more than eight hundred lunch- Fuiler Represents Freshmean Class The nominations for temporary freshman class chairman were made Wednesday in a special freshman assembly. The original five nominations for the office were Lynn Scott, Kay Shupe, Roy Parker, Jim Fitzgerld, and Kent Fuller. Primaries were held with a simple majority ruling. Lynn Scott and Kent Fuller were picked for the finals with Fuller winning out. This chairmanship is only a temporary job and will be filled in by permanent class officers next month. The other matter of business was that of picking contestants for the title of Freshman queen. Those Nominated were Marilyn Sessions, Shirly Dean, Corrine Jones, Clares Jeppson, Karen Olsen, Annette Budge, Marlene Barnett, Chyrrel Olsen, Joan Doxy, Denen Murdock, and Joan Stuart. J New Spirit es were served or for the bonfire party Wednesday night, the largest and best in Weber college history. (Continued on Page 2, Col. 1) High School Rolls Top 1100, Record With another week left for registration, night school at Weber college already totals more than 1100.

Committee Selects Weber Cheerleaders Two new yell leaders were chos- end last Wednesday to help cheer Weber's Wildcats on to fame. Yep! Betty Sandstrom and Bruce Thompson will assist Neil Hess this fall on the Affleck park yell grounds. They were selected at the tryouts by a committee consisting of Mrs. Gregory, Peggy Wood, Joan Crawford and Neil Hess. Souped-Up Kitties Out To Even 40-0 Loss Tonight at John Affleck park the Weber Wildcats will meet the Glendale Vaqueros of California in an intersectional gridiron battle promising four quarters of spectacular collegiate football as the Ogdenites attempt to avenge the humiliating 40-0 thumping handed them by the Glendale aggregation last year. Game time is scheduled for 8 p.m. Employing the T-formation for the first time this season the Vaqueros have in quarterback James Powell an outstanding field general and passer who completed 11 passes in 25 attempts against San Diego last week. Pilot Classes Spice Fall Curriculum For V. C. Students Weber college this year has initiated a new group of courses de signed to aid the student in ob taining knowledge which can be applied to making a good living and to adjusting himself to society.The program, which is called a general education course, consists of five divisions: Physical Science, Social Science, Humanities, Biology and Basic Communications. The same program is being used at the University of Utah and at the Utah State Agricultural college this year, along with more than other colleges throughout the nation. It is hoped that this course will help to avoid duplication in studies. Another purpose lies in the fact that with this new program specific needs and problems can be met and answered without being hampered by subject boundaries. Questions can be studied from all sides and not just from one special view. Excessive speculation has robbed each student of an over-all picture and understanding of most major problems of the world. Major problems in the world exist with utter disregard of departmental subject matter lines and specialities. A student can complete filling his groups with nine credit hours using this new program. Formerly, 12 credit hours were required to fill groups. Freshman English of last year is being replaced with Basic Communications. Instead of devoting all of his time to composition, a student will be instructed in speaking, listening, reading and writing.Dr. Clark explains that if this program is carried out as planned, the student of today will find himself much better equipped to cope with life than was the student before him. A great advancement is being made and the students of Weber college are the fortunate recipients of a newer and better general education course. By following general education fields or taking one class in each of the fields a student will have al-, most a full quarter of electives in' his two years at Weber. W. C, Community Set Fall Tryouts Troyouts for the Weber college-Ogden Community Theatre production "Ah Wilderness" will be held Monday and Tuesday, October 3 and 4, at 7:30 p. m., in the college auditorium. This comedy of young love by Eugene O'Neil will be directed by Carl White. Copies of the play may be obtained at the Weber college reserve library. These are eight male and four female parts to be cast. This is a joint college-community project, and all interested students are invited to try out. The play will be presented Nov. 17, 18, and 19. six-Time Winners In twelve starts in 1948, Glen- dale was victorious six times defeating Ventura, John Muir, Phoenix, Weber, San Bernadino, and Riverside, while losing to Compton, Pasadena, San Diego, Long Beach, East Los Angeles, and Los Alamitos. At the helm of the Vaqueros this year is Bill Reinhard. A signal barker for the Los Angeles Dons in 1948 he is beginning his first season as head coach at Glendale assisted by his brother, Bob. Previous Meetings In two previous encounters this season the Vaqueros met a 19-12 defeat at the hands of the East Los Angeles squad and lost a heart-breaking last-minute decision to powerful San Diego in a 26-20 battle. The San Diego crew Avas the 1948 champions in the metropolitan division of the Southern California Junior College Conference.As for Milt Mecham's Wildcats they are veterans of a 41-0 conquest of the Mesa college Mavericks last Friday. Weber will field a forward wall averaging 205 pounds from end to end and a light, but fast backfield, hard to stop once the plays from the T begin clicking.

|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.|
