Weber Students Pledge Support To Raise $5,000 In an attempt to expedite the collection of funds for a Student Union building on the new campus, the associated students of Weber College have pledged themselves to collect $5,000.00 during this year. These funds are to be raised by means of special activities sponsored by the student body and in connection with other organizations. The first of these programs was given last night at the Ogden High School auditorium, when in connection with the concert and lecture program of the city, a good number of special student fund tickets were sold for the Burl Ives program. "Many other activities are pending," Don Ripplinger student-body president said, "and the cooperation of the entire student body will be expected for these events." 'Johnny Weber' to Appear Soon Johnny Weber is the theme of this year's Weber College Handy- book. Besides the usual names and telephone numbers of all the students, it features cartoons, the Constitution of Weber and some good rules for study. The editor of this Hanybook is Beverly Deamer with Carl Green as adviser. There has been a delay dut to printing, so it probably will not be ready for distribution until Winter quarter.

President Dixon Returns from Northwest Tour President Dixon recently returned from his visit to nine Washington Junior Colleges with some very important ideas, that may help our dream of a bigger and better Weber. President Dixon said, "Seven out of nine of the junior colleges that were visited were no more than five years old. These colleges have made tremendous growth and improvement. They are. becoming an important factor in the State of Washington." One of the things, that President Dixon found that Weber ranked over the rest, was the number of doctor's degrees that are held by members of Weber's staff Weber is also ahead in the terminal program, because it is more versatile and better adapted as a community college. Although we do not have the percentage of students enrolled in our terminal program that we should have, since jobs ir. this field have increased 250 since 1942; only 7 of the population can be gainfully employed in the professions.Another point of interest to Dr. Dixon was 'the game between the University of Washington and the University Of Oregon in the new spiral stadium of Washington.

Students and Guest Performers to Appear Throat sprayers are at a premium these days as 150 Weber students prepare for the annual Christmas oratorio, "A Child Is Born."

Clair Andersen at the organ. "A unique method placing the choirs on all sides of the auditorium gives the audience a feeling that it is enveloped in a sea of song," Mr. Roland Perry composer, conductor of the oratorio said. Free tickets may be obtained at the Weber College treasurer's office, at Glen Bros, music shop, at Dunkleys music store, at Wal-green's drug store or at J. C. Pen-ney's Co. FRANKLIN P. ADAMS The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong: But the betting is best that way. Practical Knowledge. Well Miss You, .Evans So many times, you've heard us say That he was slightly daft, And when he told his subtle jokes Not many of us laughed. Dreaming up unusual stunts. According to the season, Rhyming rhymes, and writing lines Devoid of sense or reason. Evans was our chief at work, X-act in every way; Anger never creased his brows, no Matter what we'd say. In every way a man of words, No corny country yokel, Except when he quit Signpost to Report for Ogden's "local". (For name of "local" see first letter in each line). Good Luck Mr. E.!!!

|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.|
