Lack of Funds Will Limit Debate Trips Drastic cuts in student debate funds will curtail the number of trips student debaters will be able to take this year, Leland Monson, chairman of Humanities Division, said Thursday. He said debate funds for the coming year have been reduced from $1,600 to $900. This will affect not only the number of trips to be taken, but also the number of participating students. Mr. Monson says the department will go forward and give to the student body the best possible results for the available funds. In spite of the curtailed funds many debate trips will be planned.

Local Board Given Students enrolled in medical and dental, research, scientific, engineering courses or who took and passed the College Qualifying Test during the spring or summer may be considered for draft deferments at the discretion of the local draft boards, a bulletin received by President H. A. Dixon, from Utah State Headquarters of Selective Service reveals. The publication, designed to standardize procedures throughout the state, gives local draft boards wide authority in determining whether the above categories of students shall be draft exempt. The bulletin definitely states that the boards need not exercise their exempting power if they feel other circumstances show the student should be drafted. What "other circumstances" mean is left to the local board. Other than this clarification of policy, the bulletin contains little that was not known before. It repeats that "College students who are enrolled in college at the time they are ordered for induction shall have their induction postponed until the end of the academic year or cease to satisfactorily pursue a full time course of instruction." It is stressed that each student is entitled to but one such mandatory postponement. Students who have joined Reserve or National Guard units since July 1, 1951 will not be deferred by belonging to such organizations, the bulletin points out. Dr. Clarke said he understood the current Marine Reserve Program (Platoon Leaders Course) is not affected by this. Those students who joined reserve or guard units between February 1, 1951 and July 1 will undergo pre-induction examinations but will not be inducted until the earliest of the following conditions occur: College Alumni Nearly a thousand Signposts are mailed every two weeks to missionaries, service men, and other alumni of Weber College. If you have friends, relatives, or members of your immediate family who would like to receive Signpost, send their names and correct address to Signpost, Weber College, Ogden, Utah. -t- Over one hundred singers will one Hundred singers participate in six choirs, and there are sixteen soloists. Main soloist will be Jack Larsen, former Weber student body president. He will take the part of Isiah for his tenth year.

They are the Prologue, Prophecy, Apostasy, Nativity Finale and the Postlude. Other soloists are Phyllis Randall, Carolyn Merrell, Celia Varner, Carol Ebert, Jacqueline Maxwell, Jane Martindell, June Heiser, Dick Slater, Ross Giles, Marvin Henderson, George Francis, Duane Hedin, Jerry Brett, and Earl Johnston.

|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.|
