The Bureau has been successful in coordinating requests from the staff with the applications from the students. t Any student desiring work should file a card of application with the Bureau. These cards must be kept current each quarter. By Betty Ballord Signpost Staff Writer The Colleens are back again this season with a beautiful array of well-tanned "legs". The legs are so-tanned because of the many practices held this summer in Nye's Parking Lot. Connie Jones, Captain of the Colleens, developed a ferocious voice, and the girls developed a sensitivity to the word "jump". The Colleens actually did work hard this summer, and it looks as if their efforts are going to pay off. There were notes of sadness and gladness in the organization recently. Donna Sparks, elected co-captain last year, found it necessary to give up her office. To take her place, Cheryl Ellis, a very capable young lady, was voted in, and so the story has ended happily after all. By Frances Carr Signpost Staff Writer A full schedule of events will bring Homecoming Week to a climax today. On tap are a parade, a rally and show at the Egyptian Theater, a football game featuring Compton vs. Weber and a dance in the College Ballroom. Previous activities during the week included a lecture by Governor George Dewey Clyde at the Ogden High Auditorium. He told of his recent trip to Russia with top officials from eight other states. Monday night, a Platter Party under the direction of Marva Gregory, Marvin Peterson and Donna Sparks was held. Lex Malan, Janith Clifton and Farrell Collett assisted in bringing the annual Alumni Assembly to the students Thursday morning and later that evening Lou Glad-well and Mike Burdett carried out plans for the Alumni Dinner. Parade at Noon The Weber College Band will strike up the beat for the Homecoming Parade at noon today. Following will be floats representing the eight men and women social clubs on campus. Rigid rules prepared by the float committee headed by John Hale kept the competition on an equal basis. Planning, designing and the actual building kept the club members busy working for the prizes offered in the contest. The Colleens, a Sophomore girf marching organization also participated. Presents Team Mike Burdett will present the football team at the rally held at 1:15 p. m. A show will follow. Pre-game activities tonight will include the presentation of the winning floats by Dean Hurst and John Hale. Weber will then square off against Compton of California at 8 p.m. Half-time ceremonies will feature a drill by the Colleens. 4-Year Group Charts Moves Faculty members of Weber College have collected and studied data during the summer, for initiation of the four-year plan. As of yet no information is available to the public. A committee is being set up to study the problems that are being encountered in this four-year plan. Some of these are: needed buildings, academic divisions offered, number of courses and amount of degrees given in each. President Miller will issue questionnaires later on this year for help from the student body. New Flag Twirlers A new addition to the Colleens this year are the Flag-twirlers. They are a group of four girls, designed to add that extra something to an already excellent group. The Flag-twirlers are Betty Ballard, Janet Bell, Donna Osmond, and Joan Borger. The school will be looking forward to seeing them in action. The biggest news of all right now, is the entrance of Homecoming. It seems the Colleens are going to be the entertainment for the- entire half-time activities, and this year they have all new uniforms. Attractive Uniforms The uniforms are attractive enough that the drill could be a flop and half-time activities would still be a success. At any rate, the Colleens will do their best, and that should mean anabove-average performance. With all the excitement and hard work ahead of them, the coming year should prove exceptionally fruitful.

|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.|
