Phoenix Gives Unusual Show Phoenix's annual assembly will go on stage the second of May. The Phoenix bid for the assembly trophy promises some real entertainment in an out-of-the ordinary vein.

According to Brent Harris, who is working on the progTam committee for the Phoenix production, the show is based on the ways in which different faculty members get to Heaven.

|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.|
