WEBER COLLEGE THE WEATHER It's been pretty wet, hasn't it? T SIGNPOS VOL. XX OGDEN, UTAH NO. 16 MAY 24, 1957 For a complete rundown on the new Technical Building, turn to the inside pages of this issue. This material was compiled under the capable hands of former Editor Bob Grondel. I . t La i V r- ) t t i i:. at With a familiar sn.ile, Gordon Watts looks on while Diane Gall is measured for her cap and gown. The cap and gown, long a traditional costume for the graduate, will be worn at the commencement exercises held on June 1st. fey, m arret son Speaks The Reverend A.

He did ministerial work in Bridgeport and Salem, Illinois, prior to his Ogden work. All To Heck Even the Signpost makes mistakes. This was proved last issue with much finesse. A letter of hot content rests in 'he editor's desk demanding the correction of the error contained in the story about Sadie Hawkins day which was run last issue. The red faced editor will concede and further state that Carolyn Wilburg who won the milkmaid contest was definitely not a member of Sharmea but was affiliated with Chanodo. That such an error was made is a disgrace to mankind! In sum-ni'iry the editor would like to con-Vey many apologies for this fiasco. The Editor. The Awards assembly held yesterday made apparent the outstanding type of people that attend Weber College. Many awards were given to both individuals and groups. These honors are won by diligent work on the part of the student or organization in the respective fields. Probably the most coveted award for a group was the assembly trophy. This trophy is given to the club or organization which presents the best assembly of the year. The judging is very stiff and those winning deserved the honor. In the men's division, Excelsior took the honors-, and in the women's the Swabbies of LaDianaeda were the victors. There is much rivalry in this contest and a great deal of work went into all of the assemblies this year. Another high point of the program was the award given to the two students who had maintained a straight 4. grade average for the two years they had attended the College. These people were Janet Richards and Robert Johnson. The Exceptional Service Awards were given to Joen England and Warren Buss. This award is given on a basis of scholarship, leadership, participation in school activities, character and personality. The outstanding Sophomore Award which was a sweater was given to the following: Warren Buss, Joen England, Connie Garr, Georgia Hohlios, David Jacobs, John Lange, Robert Marriott, Or-lene Mayberry, Deniese McGahan, Donna Miller, Karen Poulter, An-! nette Ray, Barbara Slater, Kay Stanfield and Patsy S. Van De Graff. Only the Beginning H riiil ti 11 Oil wii On the evening of Saturday, June 1st, the Weber College Sixty-ninth Commencement services will be held, where graduates will receive Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts degrees, or Certificates of Completion.

The Ogden-Weber College Symphony orchestra playing as the processional "March of the Meis-tersingers," by R. Wagner, J. Clair Anderson will act as organist, and Max F. Dalby directs the group.

Hanson will direct. The Benediction will be given by Janet Maude Richards, after which the school song, "Purple and White" will be sung by the chorus and the congregation. Amnesty Day At Library It has been announced by Mrs. Wilma Gross, Head Librarian, that the 27th of May will be a day of amnesty to all students holding overdue books. Anyone having these books will be exempt from paying the fine on that day. This new policy is being experimented with as a means of getting all overdue books back on the shelves before the spring quarter ends. Students of the summer school need to have access to these books. If the policy succeeds in its ability to get books into the library there will be such a day set aside at the end of each quarter when fines will not have to be paid. So if you are short of cash as nearly everyone is at this time of year don't forget to return the Library's overdue books on Monday, May 27. 'P' Men Hold Last EGAD! LOOK OUT! Here come the "Sisters" out of their Club meeting with tickets for one of the final activities of the year, LAST CHANCE DANCE or PRINT SPRINT. Odd, you think? You should have seen some of the titles suggested, Print Prance, Suddenly It's Spring, Phoenix Phootwhear, "Sistcfrs' " Social, and a few other unmentionables. There were so many superior titles that even though the Club whittled and whittled, they couldn't ' get it down to any less than two names. They thought, these two titles went together. The date is May 24th, and will be held immediately after the President's Tea that night, about 9 P. M. The Dance, according , to Steve Mecham, who was elected next year's President, has- an air of unusualness and individuality. Many factors decorations, band, etc. will be a unique "surprise," No one will know about it until that night. Could be the plans haven t been completed yet fio Change Yet The naming contest for the "Signpost" has run into trouble. The shortage of time in Spring Quarter has prevented completion of the intended name change. Editor Malin Foster said a survey would be taken, Fall Quarter of next year to determine a suitable name out of three or four rated highest by a selecting council instituted last spring. Members on the committee were President William P. Miller, administration; Robert S. Mikkelsen, faculty; George-Handy, Alumni; Kent Ellis and Kay Stanfield, Sophomore Class officers; Bill Hudson and Sandy Weaver, Freshmen Officers; Editorial Staff of the Standard Examiner, professional and Robert Grondel, "Signpost" editor.

The "Signpost" extends Phoenix. So don't be tight get a I its thanks to the studentbody mak-date and come. ' ing the contest a success thus far.

|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.|
