SIO PONT'S HERS GOES KVKKH'nTNQ X, Sig Font, being of sound mind and body do heeeby testify with crossed fingers to the truthfulness of this biased analysis of myself . This dissertation is for the purpose of revealing the personality who has been wasting space in every edition of the Signpost with his neurotic ravings. In order to analyze myself , I take a mirror in hand and describe, perhaps a little dishonestly, what is pictured thereon.The thing which catches the eye first is a sunburned nose placed between two bloodshot eyes, resulting in a lovely monochromatic color scheme, CHOCOLATE FLAVOR The skin stretched over this unimpressive headbone is a little darker thai normal and is topped off with chocolate flavored hair. It is here noted that the ' hair is very short and as such never needs "parting upf This demonstrates the basic laziness of the thing on the other side of the mirror. This person comes packed in a long thin package in an effort to conserve space. Since it is able to look down (having no other choice) on most people, one must not condemn it for its feeling of superiority when it comes to things like reaching for sky hooks. Going further with physical observations, one may remark about the very active vocal cords which simply never get a rest, not even when the "self" is asleep (which incidentally is a good part of the time) . The ears appear to be quite deaf, especially if the word "dishes, " "assignment," or "work" is mentioned. The feet are the large economy size and come with a lifetime guarantee. HEAVY. DRINKER The purse is always empty, and the reason for this is fairly evident. It insists on associating with a Buick car which has very bad, drinking habits. It works at four different jobs which may account for the confused and bewildered state it is eternally in. It has one good job but must work at three more to pay the income tax on the first one. That should be enough for physical appearances, now we must move to the workings of that evil little mind The mind nachine is constantly machine is constantly busy thinking of ways to getoutof classes. A fivorite (and over-used) one is the debate trip MARILYN angle. Since this one has proved to be most successful, it is used quite often. All in all, this "self" is pretty handy gadget; a rather expensive one though, since it consume close to two tons of food per day and is often in need of repairs like the removal of appendix and the 1reat ment of cracks and sprains acquired quite regularly on the tennis court, the baseball diamond, and the baket.. ball floor. CELLAR THEATER WILL CONTINUB NEXT YEAR H.l.D. REDFORT, PRES. AND FACULTY HOLD RECEPTION: BERTHA ECCLES HALL IS SCENE, TONIGHT The graduates will be saying good-bye and leaving many of their friends, perhaps for the last time; at the President's reception which will be held Friday, May 27, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The affair is a reception given by President and Mrs. William P. Miller, assisted by the Faculty Ladies Association, for all graduating students and their parents.

SUMMER SCHOOL REGISTRATION DATES ARE SET JUNE 9&13, DEAN CLARKE ANNOUNCES Schedules for summer school classes are available now at the registrar's affice.

Last summer 1133 pefsons were registered exceeding the previous year's number of 779. Dr. Robert A. Clarke, Dean of the summer sessions expects another increase this year. Dr. Clarke stated the increase is due to three reasons: (1) Men Facing the draft are anxious to get an extra quarter before they enter the service, (2) There is a great number of students trying to develop vocational skills they can use to work their way through college or find permanent Jobs, and (3) Students who are behind in their re quirements for graduation are trying to catch up so they can graduate on schedule.

BIOLOGY AND LIFE SCIENCE CLASSES BEGIN FIRST STEP OF 10-YEAR PROGRAM Nearly sixty Weberites went on a hard working field trip to Snow Basiil Hay 12. The students, members of Life Science I and Biology 12 classes were well equipped with shovels and rakes, for an applied lesson in soil conservation. cThey saw photographs, taken years ago, of Wheeler Creek area shea lng that overgrazing had caused heavy, runoffs, and a swift stream cutting deeply into the land. STREAM DRIED Steep banks often caved in, and the stream dried up by summer time. The water in the stream, a part of Ogden'City's drinking water supply was muddy and unfit as a source of olulnary water. It was then that the Basin, formerly privately owned, was purchased and the restoration prograi started. Now the stream flows all year, and the clarity of the water i proof that good management will correct soil erosion.

|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.|
