POLEMICS ALAMODE Editor's Note: The following is second in a series of pro-con articles on vital local and national problems sponsored jointly by the Weber college International Relations club and Signpost. Any student may contribute this series by arrangement with Harold Bateman, club adviser, or Lawrence C. Evans, Signpost editorial adviser. This week's subject is. When strikes peril national economy, their instigators should be arrested and jailed pending resumption of work by union members. Next issue's question will be: Is mercy killing justified? Pro A J By J. R. Wolter Leaders of the industrial unions have a strangehold on the American public which can and has resulted in economic chaos causing poverty, discom- ,-?4T forts and sometimes death. To prevent such disasters the instigators of strikes which imperil our national economy should be jailed pending re-sumption of work by union members. Our government of the people, by the people, and for the people, has many laws protecting the public and the rights of the citizens. Laws protecting the public and the rights of the citizens. Laws protecting humanity from the hardships of hunger and the lack of necessary comforts caused by premeditated unemployment should be , equally important. National strikes are won not at the expense of the employer and employee alone, but by the suffering of an innocent public. Labor disputes can be solved by government mediators thus avoiding crippling effects on national economy. Unemployment today in many sections of the United States have reached depression level and lower. Over 500,-00 persons have lost a total of 2,600,000 working days in the past year due to strikes, according to recent federal reports. It has paved the way for dangerous legislation by politicians who are clamoring for nationalization of basic industries. Unions should be held responsible for the effects of their actions on the national economy. Union leaders faced with the prospect of confinement for refusing to negotiate would be less inclined to take measures which could result in national economic crises. Con . . . By Jim Brown One of the basic principles set forth in the constitution (and I hope you won't consider me corny for referring to the. constitution, it seems that sometimes the people in our country forget about our constitution.) is the freedom of thought and the freedom to assemble.The kind of freedom to which I refer is the kind that doesn't trample on other citizens toes. Both the above mentioned freedom's are destroyed when we begin to throw people in jail when they attempt to acquire certain conditions which they honestly think would be for their best good. Men can be compared to a boat on a stream, they either paddle upstream (advance) or float down stream (retrogress).

Medievally fs , JSk. t t A heads of government were prompt to throw in jail they who were unable to pay their debts. The result of such action only could mean one thing; they were kept behind bars year after year and the debt remained unpaid, consequently both parties were caused to lose the things which rightfully belonged to them. Such may be the situation in the case of jailing the instigators of strikes which peril the national economy. Nothing progressive is really accomplished when the instigators of strikes are jailed, it only gives the strikers another reason for their actions. It seems that there is a better way to reason with men than to give them a number and a close haircut because they aredis-satis-fied with the working conditions they have to live under. 'Student Prince' Set Opening performance of "The. Student Prince" this year's Weber College opera has been set for Thursday, March 30 with performances continuing Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. "The Student Prince" this year directed by E. Carl Green and Roland Parry is expected to be the outstanding opera in the history of the Music Department of Weber. The cast has been selected and Jack Larsen is cast as the male lead. Pat Payne is Kathie the Prince's true love; Chyrrl Olsen is the Princess; Parley Norseth is Dr. Engle; Drew Van Wagoner is the Count; and Kathleen Belnap is the Duchess. Don Solberg plays the comedy lead as Lutz the Prince's personal valet. Walt McPhie is Hubert valet to the Prince's valet. Rulon Garfield plays Ruder the innkeeper where most of the action takes place. Carlyle Parker, Sherman Johann-sen, Dan Rhodes play the part of three merry students Asterbury, Detliff and Lucas and they carry a major part of the singing roles. The story is a beautiful one told in lovely music, beautiful costumes, striking settings and moving scenes to portray young love, duty, honor and responsibility. Rehearsals have been carried on for three weeks and the strength of the show is shown when the cast is perfectly motionless completely in awe as certain scenes occur on stage. Every time Jack Larsen and the Chorus sing "Deep in My Heart Dear" it thrills even the cast members after ten's of performances.Any citizen of Weber county who this year misses "The Student Prince" is going to miss a night of thrills romance and marvelousentertainment. o . v -1 ; - t .

The Weberites defeated a tough Casper, Wyo., five, 62-52 in the first round, then proceeded to lace Trinidad College of Colo., 68-43, then moved into the final round to defeat their arch rivals, the Boise Broncos, 69-55.

The vaunted Weberites displayed too much power, class and hustle for the remainder of the teams entered in the joust to cope with. They seemingly showed little signs of any weaknesses.

|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.|
