IcssQ (3Gdod3 0 WEBER COLLEGE, Vol. 14, No. 7 Sec. 562, Resolutions, Better Late Than Never Although Jan. 12 is a little late for a New Year's article, look at the fun we've had for nearly two weeks with no resolutions binding from ,1950 and nothing promised for '51. With 1950 finally tucked away, looking like Lost Weekend with ulcers, the nearly two billion people on Earth now begin on hapless little New Year. .. Perhaps you think we the people used up all our schemes to batter a year, but wait and see. 1952 may find us raising potatoes for Joe, or a section gang boss for a crew of North" Koreans in China. It hasn't really been so bad, in 1950 we only got into one war just think, 1941 had two. Weber's students will add their little touch to the shaping of the world. Jim has promised to never run for more than three political offices in one week. Lloyd Ferguson resolves to tell his troubles to his bishop and Janett Ripplinger promised not to tell anybody to tell anything to their bishop. Ralph Macfarlane hasn't promised to yet but maybe he won't make any more Pheonix announcements when he is talking in assemblies for the board of control. Mrs. Ford vehemently resolves to obstain from any more geology field trips, due to some seaweed that chanced to find her sleeping bag one night in old Mexico. President Dixon will load up his money-mad fowling piece and go gunning for a few more dollars. Theoretically Mr. Buss will continue to teach in 1951. Fred Rabe resolves to give complete instruction concerning every thing that can develop in the dark, not to infringe on Home Econ. 33. Joe Stalin resolves to get another five million Red Chinese to do his fighting for him. Uncle Sam resolves to break up all the young lives that he can, and when Weber's men get wind of their draft number coming up, they'll breeze down and enlist in a branch of the service where they won't have to walk. Men Are As Scarce As Hair on Bald Head Here we find our selves at the beginning of Winter quarter, and the first exciting problem that is facing the freshman is HELL WEEK. But the girls say they have a different sort of a problem. "The boys are getting scarce like the hair on a bald man's head." Yes, the questions of today are: When are you going? Where are you going and in what branch? Of course everyone knows the answers. The boys of Weber College are answering Uncle Sam's calls very faithfully in fact it seems they can't wait, they're enlisting. The possibilities of Weber College becoming an all girl school in what looks like to be the coming war aren't very probable. With the chances of having an R.O.T.C. program here and also the Navy ROC program will help to keep some of the boys here at school. So girls brighten up those smiles the boys will be around. We HOPE. OGDEN, UTAH Thursday, Jan. 11, 1951 P. L. & R. Robina Parker, John Elzey and Dick Slater inspect the murder weapon in the cellar theatre play "Suspect." The play will run Friday and Saturday at the Bertha Eccles Hall. New Technique Used In Student-Counselor Talks Time was when, years ago and on many campuses, the students visited the Dean's office for some infraction of a time-honored rule of behavior. This, however, is not the case any more. Things have changed. Today it is not the Dean's office b.ut the Guidance Center, not the proverbial red carpet but a friendly and understanding face-to-face contact between a student and acounselor. The new system involves ay trained counselor and a thoughtful student conferring with each other on the next action to he taken to prevent disaster and to promote a well laid-out plan for social integration.The questions o f academic hurdles, social re-adjustment and occupational choices take their turn in the shake-down and tailoring process to meet the needs of individual students. The student-counselor contact takes on the form and shape of two distinct and different approaches. These systems are known to the initiated as the directive and non-directive counseling interviews. The directive technique is used by the student and the counselor in arriving at a course of action to be taken by the student. It involves an accumulation of considerable data about the student through the use of tests, the completion of personnal data blanks and information given verbally by the student, and results in some advice from the counselor to the student. The non-directive technique is used by the student and the counselor is exploring the emotional problems of the student and bringing about a cathartic action which brings to light stress and strain that are affecting present student behavior. Either approach will assist the student to a greater independence and integration of hisself-realization. Why be an emotional hermit and carry endless burdens? Contact a counselor at the Guidance Center and remove the blocks to your progress by a thorough and frank discussion of academic difficulties, social and emotional block, and occupational indecision. Chart your course in life with the compass of self-understanding and appreciation. NOTICE! Don't forget the big dance tonight right after the game with Boise. The affair will be held in the College Ballroom and music will be furnished by Jay Stokes' Orchestra.

The Orchid Ball was once a traditional Weber College dance but was discontinued a few years ago. It is hoped by students and faculty alike that this dance may again become a tradition. Is This What You're Thinking? I think that I shall never see' A mark as lovely as a B, A B whose fat and luscious curves Will please the eye and sooth the nerves; A B that drives away dull care And bringeth gladness everywhere;A B that may in time, I wist, Increase fourfold to make Dean's list. D's are probably made by fools, But not according to my rules; For in this place it seems to me No one at WEBER can make a B.

Here's News From Vet Administration (Editor's note: the Veterans Administration Information office in Denver, Colo., is sending a series of articles concerning all veterans. lhey will contain information that the Veterans Administration office fell are important to all ex-service men.) Eleven percent of all blinded World War II veterans training under Public Law 16 are studying to be teachers or student counselors a Veteran Administration survev disclosed. At the time of the survev. 448 blinded veterans were taking all types of training under Public Law 16. Of these, 51 were training as teachers and counselors. The total included 23 learning to be high school teachers; 14, college teach ers; 8, teachers of the blind: 2. teachers of the physically handi capped; 3, vocational advisers, and 1, student counselor. The V-A survey also revealed that 12 blinded veterans were holding full-time jobs as teachers and counselors. Among them were 3 college teachers, 2 high school teachers, 1 teacher of the blind, 1 college counselor, 3 V-A training officers, 1 vocational adviser, and 1 veterans' counselor. The 12 veterans represented 2 percent of the 556 sightless veterans tully employed at the time of the study. The study disclosed that most blinded veterans were in jobs or training which brought them in contact with the sighted world. Relatively few went into specialized occupations for the blind. Veterans who lost their sieht through service-connection num bered 1,684 at the time of the survey. The 690 not in training or at full-time jobs included those em ployed part-time, out of work, preparing to start training, or who had stopped training. Lost and Found Articles Should Be Reported Lost anything lately? The lost and found department in the cashiers office is the department to go to if you have misplaced books, gloves, pens, scarfs or anything else during the school year. The Standards committee urges every one to be extra careful with their belongings and if you do lose something, check in the cashiers office to see if it has been found. Thus far a string of Christmas tree lights, a pair of girl's rain boots and a leather brief case have been lost and not returned. If you know the where-abouts of these articles turn the information into Mr. Bateman or Fred Ball, who are on the Standards committee.' Any article found should be turned into the lost and found department at once. True beauty is as deep as you want to make it. An over-dressed woman and an "underdressed" heart sometimes go together. It is dangerous to drive in a fog, especially if it's mental. Paterson.

|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.|
