XXI NO. 21 OGDEN, UTAH DECEMBER 6, 1957 First Arena Production Clicks; Student Attendance Picks Up ford Warriors m Da Si Again, With Coasl By Barbara Henry Thanksgiving was something special to 10 Weber students this year. They were returning from the annual Western Assn. of Teachers of Speech Tournament held in Los Angeles last week. After competing with hundreds of students from 53 colleges, they brought home with them a trophy and seven certificates. Heiner Leads Pack Carolyn Heiner, freshman, led the Weber team. She claimed a third place and a trophy in the junior division of extemporaneous speaking. There were about 285 participants in that field. In the men's division of debate, Brent Harris and Gary London made up one of the 30 teams that went through the first four rounds without defeat. Survive 1st Rounds In the women's division, taams composed of Carolyn Heiner and Rosa Lee Schofield; Thelma Mer-curis and Barbara Bramwell survived the first four preliminary rounds. Rosa Lee Schofield and Carolyn Heiner stayed in the first four preliminary rounds in oratory. Janet Eckersley advanced through the first rounds and was not defeated until she entered the final rounds in extemporaneous speaking. Mickey Pemberton, Mike Men-son and Steve Mecham made up the rest of the team. uai Pianists lake Hit With ue Style By Geraldine Utsman Opening night of "Outward Bound" by Sutton Vane, directed by HED Redford and presented by the W. C. Arena Theatre, sparkled with excellent acting and good drama for a large and appreciative audience. This play was a challenge to the abilities of the actors and the di rector. However, through the excellent direction of HED Redford and the efforts of a talented cast, this W. C. production can be ap plauded as "terrific" in every respect and certainly lived up to the fine traditions of the past. Heaven Bound The context of the story circles around a ship headed for heaven carrying as passengers, many di versified characters who can't be lieve they are deceased and des tined to divine judgment. Occa sionally the tempo ascends to some very exciting emotional scenes then flits into some old-fashioned comedy. The audience was very responsive to both. The cast includes: Larry Chand ler as the heavenly steward, Fran cia Oborn and Val Limburg as the ship's lovers, Joe Belloni as the drunk, Danene Woolley as the social snob, Bob Van Dyke as a clergyman, Joan See as the plain and simple woman, Orrice Murdock as the pseudo-great man and Tony Montgomery as the divine Examiner. New W. C. Attendance Part of the success of this presentation was due to the fine audience approval from the numerous W. G. students m attendance. We hope that all the play presentations will be met with such dynamic interest.This attraction will be presented every night from the 3rd to the 7th of December. Admission is 50 cents for students and $1.00 for adults. Play time is 8:.'i0 in the Moench. G. Utsman. The only duet-pianists to ever play with Toscanini and the NBC Symphony, Luboschutz and Nem-enoff, a husband and wife team, complimented the second Concert series presented by the Utah Symphony Orchestra, directed by Maurice Abravanel last Friday night at the Ogden High School Auditorium. Mozart Featured The symphony Orchestra presented two selections of the program, The Marriage of Figaro Overture by Mozart and Symphony No. 4 by Tschaikowsky plus background accomplishment for the duet pianos. The distinguished artists played the Concerto in E flat by Mozart and introduced a Concerto for Two Pianos written for and dedicated to them by Bohuslav Martinu, a Prague-born American who is quickly becoming one of America's finest contemporary composers. Near Lullabye The two pianists have an ineffable style resulting in two pianos imitating a complete orchestra and, although their playing was superb, as usual, their selections seemed as lullabyes to the audience when compared with Abra-vanel's interpretation of Tschaik-owsky's Symphony No. 4. 'Annie Set For W.C. Production Weber College will present its annual festival of Christmas music in the Ogden High School Auditorium Sunday, the 15th of December. The program will be given in two performances, one at 5:00 p. m. and the other at 7:30 p. m. in order to accommodate the patrons who have religious services to attend. Five organizations will combine to unfold the beautiful story of the birth of Christ in music. These organizations are: The Weber College Community Orchestra, The Ogden-Weber College Symphonic Choir, The Weber College Modern Choir, The Voce Coeds and the Musettes. At the narrating post will be HED Redford, speech and drama giant of Weber College. Mr. J. Clair Anderson will take his familiar spot at the organ, and Ralph Marsden and Glenn L.

Big Broadway Hit "Annie Get Your Gun" by Irv ing Berlin is the selection made by Glenn L. Hanson, managing musical director, and H. E. D. Redford, drama and staging manager. The musical comedy, starring Mary Martin, has enjoyed tremendous success recently in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and was performed on television recently. With such wide spread interest in the show, a sell-out is predicted for the college presentation. All Are Eligible The co-directors stressed that the entire student body is eligible to participate, regardless of whether they have had any choral or speSch work. Mr. Hanson specified, how ever,- that participants must reg ister winter quarter for opera workshop, held daily from one to four.

|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.|
