Students To Summer Get Varied Courses Weber College Summer school will begin Tuesday, June 11, and run until Friday, August 23. Several new and unusual courses will be offered this summer. More than 800 students are expected to enroll for the new quarter. This includes only full accredited students of college age. Registration of the Day School will be on Monday. June 10, from 1:I0 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. No registration appointment is necessary for the Day School. Evening School appointments will be issued at the Registrar's office in Building 1, Upper Campus, Monday and Tuesday, May 27 and 28. The Registration will be on Thursday, June (, from (i p.m. to S p.m., and on Monday, June 10, same hours. Ail fees must be paid at the time of registration. Tuition and fees for Summer Quarter amount to 37.00 for a student carrying 10 to 18 credit hours of $3.50 per credit hour, plus laboratory fees for part-time students. There are four main reasons why the summer enrollment is so consistently large. First, students utilize summer classes to make up deficiencies in their scheduled curricula. Second, they go to summer school to speed up graduation dates and get on the job sooner. Veterans, especially fall into this group, because their education has been interrupted, and they are trying to make up lost time. Third, housewives find themselves able to get baby-sitters in the summer, so they come to college then to study. And last of all, we have those people in almost any business who are preparing themselves for advancement in their particular jobs. Lacking specific job training, they come to summer school. AH summer school courses are fully accredited. The credit is good in any college. The summer teachers are, for the most part, regu lar staff members of the College. This summer, a few special classes are being offered. Dr. Le-land H. Monson will conduct a series of accelerated English classes, which means that students will be able to get nine hours of English credit in only one quarter, which fills the requirement. AnlomtpH pmirsps in Organic Chemistry and College Physics will also be available to interested stu dents. A special, inclusive matn program will be taught by Mr. Stevenson.

Something new this year is the Marquardt machine operation training plnss Weber Colletre will be the training center for Mar quardt employees. This year, also a first, Weber College will sponsor the Children's Theatre production. The vehicle for this is Speech 20, conducted by T. Leonard Rowley. The course is offered both to regular college students and some high school imports. Acting, production, and theatre business managament will all be included in tne course. The play is scheduled for the week of July 12. If the play is successful, Mr. Rowley plans a tour to the surrounding areas for the cast. A repeated Weber public service will be the junior swimming classes. These classes are open to children from 8 to 3 4 years of age. About K0 students are antic ipated, judging irom past eu- Summer School Schedules are now available in the Registrar's Office in Building 1. Acorn Makes rlay Debut Yearbook Editor, Stan Brewer, has announced that if all goes well the Acorn will be out the 2Sth of May. This year's Acorn will feature more color than ever before with a full color cover and color employed on the inside pages. There will be more pages with some new features added. These new features are such things as a section on skiing. The Delta Phi fraternity will also have a section in the book. According to Stan, some humor has been "attempted." The drawings of Gary Nelson known throughout the campus will appear several times. The editors are happy with the book and hope that the student-body will feel the same way. A strong performance of Joseph Hayes "The Desperate Hours" under the direction of T. Leonard Rowley left audiences aghast last week after a sheer, realistic presentation.Following- the usual five to ten minute on stage warm-up and mood setting, the play swung into a fast paced display of violence. Joe Belloni, cast as the cop that convict Glen Griffin swore "to get," turned in a well-rounded performance played off against FBI man, Gary Larsson. Dean Lundberg as Glen Griffin lashed the entire play together with Marv Protzman as his brother Hank, and Richard Nealson as Dan Hilliard. The main action centered around the household the Griffin brothers and convict pal Robish, played by Dave Gunderson, hold captive. Realism was apparently not only the byword but the total aim of the production. The ape-like eating habitg. of the convicts, which left cheese, twinkies, etc. spread all i over the floors, added to the sharp contrast between the neat, soft spoken pepole of the house and the brutal and grating orders from the convicts. Dean Lundberg's change from the confident convict to an unsure, partialy demented kid aftre his brother leaves him in the third act chalked the final twist of realism. The plausibility of the play and the authenticity of the actors gave a more than pleasurable evening enjoyed by all who could obtain tickets.Other members of the cast were: Betty James. Peggy Grimm, Stanton Taylor, LaVelle Day, Kay Fer-rell, Dean Ellis, and Max Simp- Lagoon Hosts Soph Outing The annual Sophomore Outing will be held at Lagoon on the 17th of May from noon to i:(0 p. m., according to Kay Stanfield, vice-president of the Sophomore class. Classes will be dismissed at noon to enable students to attend the outing. An invitation has been extended the Freshmen of the school to attend the function if theydesire. A discount will be given on some of the rides and concessions at Lagoon. Among other activities, there will be a student-faculty Softball game which should prove more amusing than the usual soft-ball game. The group will have lunch at 3:00 after which there will be a dance from 4 till (i p. m. Officers in charge are President Kent Ellis, vice-president; Kay Stanfield, Sec. Annette Hanes, historian; Joyce Underwood, and representatives, Donna Miller and Guy Larkins. Alpha Rho Gives Annual Assembly "This is Your World" is the theme of the coming Alpho Rho assembly. The Blue Knights, under the direction of President Bill Murdock, will present a variety show built around the unusual theme of the life story of a fictitious male character. The program, in song, dance, and comedy, will cover his life from early childhood to old age. The show is divided into six parts. The first section, from early childhood, is a dance number. The second, about the first day of schol, is a comedy scene. Next, a musical number covers the first date. Then the wedding day is a comedy scene. The fifth scene is a family one, told in comedy. The final part of the show concerns his old age, and features a choral number. The Pig Was Too Big Sadie Hawkins Blast Goes Over With Bang Last Tuesday marked the occurrence of Weber College's annual Sadie Hawkins Day celebration. Much hilarity and sport was provided for those wishing to participate. Included in the festivities was a greased pig race, a milkmaid contest, the Sadie Hawkins Day Race, the Lil Abner Daisy Mae contest and a street dance. The greased pig proved to be a poor contestant for the males who pursued him. This was due to his size which slowed him down considerably. After some debate, Larry Pulsipher was decided to be the winner. Each club entered one girl in the milkmaid contest. One minute was given each contestant to see how much milk she could tease out of old bossy. Carolyn Wilburg, from Sharmea was the victor in this contest. Much excitement was provided by the Sadie Hawkins Race when the girls ganged up en masse to catch a fellow of their choice. Gordon Watts was the first man caught. He was carried bodily to a place of safe keeping. The per-suers then took out after some of the other "eligibles." Victorious in the Daisy-Mae Lil Abner contest were Jackie Baker and Stanton Taylor. These activities were followed by a street dance where the females danced with their catches. The festivity was sponsored by Otyokwa. Much hard work and time was spent on it and they are to be commended for a job well done.

|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.|
