Debate abs Sweepstakes A new addition has been made to Weber's trophy case already this year, courtesy of the Debate Squad. The scrappy word-slingers brought back the Sweepstakes Trophy from the Columbia Basin Meet held at Pasco, Washington, last week. Weber speakers competed with representatives from colleges all over the Northwest. Individuals responsible for the "big catch" include Jim Hardy who won first places in extemporaneous speaking, impromptu, and debate. Brent Wood is Jim's partner in the last named event. Weber's formidable woman's debate team, Carolyn Heiner and Rosa Lee Scoffield captured first place in women's debate. Andy Wahlquist nabbed some second place honors to aid the 'Cat's cause. Other students who attended the meet are Mike Murdock, Garv Olson, John Hale, Chuck Powell and Mike Monson. The group were accompanied by Dr. Leland H. Monson and L. C. Evans. Both faculty advisors were impressed over the Weber win and hope to see it repeated in other meets throughout the year. PINK LADIES, Squad fl FIRE ENGINE! Sharmea girls were the envy of all the smallest small fry last week. All it took was a wild idea, La Raye Citte, and Sharmea had a shiny new firetruck for the Homecoming parade. The 17 "ladies" were at the height of their glory when they borrowed Weber County's new firetruck. Being civic minded the gals were reluctant to borrow the county's one and only truck. The Fire Chief reassured the gals that all was well. At noon the truck arrived. The signs, "Sharmea thinks Weber's team is red hot," were tacked on the sides of the truck and the girls climbed aboard. Then their hopes were shattered when the firemen had to answer an unexpected alarm. With the siren bellowing, away they went, racing out of the tabernacle parking lot. The firemen promised to return and thirty minutes later, just before parade time they pulled into the parking lot and all the girls got back on the truck for the parade. The ride through town was an exciting experience and who knows . . . they may have found themselves going to a fire if another alarm had been sounded. Notice The cashier's office reports that there aie still plenty of tickets for tonight and Saturday night performances of "Night Must Fall." Students may obtain tickets by exchanging stub number 13 of the student activity book at the cashier's office or at J. C. Penney's. There is absolutely no charge to students of Weber College. Halloween 1958. Let s Be Druids By Mike Parker A new era was born centuries ago when a bored Druid cooked up a ball for his fellow cultists in Gaul. Having done nothing all summer except curse ordinary folks and inaugurate opposing politicians with a hex instead of a boax, thedrudgery-plagued Prophet of Witchcraft conjured up a summer's end feast for all Gaulist Druids which included the finest of cuisine and booze. COME BACK I " v x" x I i " 1 I -? - - v, ill - I ' I " ' ! III I F , ' - .v.v.r,v, c - : I ) ' " wis l.u, s r, 1 COULD I CALL YOU MOTHER? YOU MAY CALL ME MOTHER Unsuspecting Mrs. Bramson is here succumbing to the charms of the psychopathic, Dan, little knowing the dangers Involved. Looking on in amazement, Mrs. Bramson's niece, Oliva, senses the horror of the situation but remains silent. In tonight's play, Miss Darwell (center) will appear as Mrs. Bramson; Steve Jensen (left) as Dan, and Geneva Peterson (right) as Oliva. After blasting off fornew-worlds- with their appetites scorched by wines and schnopps, the Druids vexed the world with evil goblins, leprechauns and other corny figmentations of the horror-movie circle. Steam Letting Our Halloween, in those days, was a fantastic scheme for the average run-of-the-mill Druid to blow-off a little steaming meanness with his buddies from the Abominable Unknown and harrass the poor mortals into insanity. The summer's end ball somehow became tied up with All Saint's Day in England, and eventually sneaked into the new world colonies.As it evolved it progressed into a bona-fide Tradition, tipping outhouses over, breaking1 windows, setting scfiools afire, and other harmless little tricks became customary. Major Address Harold Aloysious Gunderson, Jr., son of the original H. A. G., a Bronx behemoth in the pumpkin industry, recently addressed the National Foundation of Easter Egg Gatherers, stating: "Ladies Gentlemen. We are, indeed, faced by a social problem today which is destroying the initiative and morality of our youth. Although my interests in poultry-raising conflict with my late father's progressive pushing of pumpkins. I am, indeed, forced to say that Halloween is turning our children into beggars . . . mere beggars. I hereby say unto you if we are to rid ourselves of delinquency, moral corruption, thievery, vandalism, and dishonesty, then we must join the bandwagon to abolish Halloween. "Your children, my friends, may be among the vermin on Halloween (Continued on Page 4.) Jane Darwell Heads Cast In Taut Suspense Thriller orld Famed ioiinist to Perform Here Weber College students will have the pleasure of attending a concert by Johanna Martzy at the Ogden High School Auditorium on Nov. 12. "Miss Martzy, who currently is residing in Switzerland, is anticipated to bring a great gathering that night, therefore an early arrival is recommended. The performance will begin at 8:13 p. m. sharp," said Ethel Willis, secretary of the Community Concert. The violinist, Hungarian by bh-th, began her professional career by winning the first prize in 1!47 at Geneva's Concours International d' Execution. Because of this she was expeditiously launched on a series of international appearances as a soloist with orchestra and in recital. Widely Traveled She has presented extensive solo recitals in Switzerland, Germany, France, Holland, Great Britain, and Italy, all which have warranted her great praise. Miss Martzy has a large range of orchestral engagements which encompasses all the major orchestras of Europe. Currently Johanna Martzy isi-e-cording with the Angel and Decca Gold Label Records people. She has won high acclaim the world over with such comments as: "Impressive performance" (New York Herald Tribune), or "Amazing virtuosity" (St. LouisGlobe-Dispatch). Nine performers led by Miss Jane Darwell will wade through the depths of Emlyn Williams psychological thriller "Night Must Fall" for third presentation tonight.The play, Weber's first of the year, opened Wednesday evening to an enthusiastic crowd of first nighters. It will run until tomorrow evening. "Night Must Fall" proved to be a worthy opener of the year's dramatic season. It generates the almost unbearable kind of suspense that viewers find gruesomely fascinating. The plot concerns the attempt of a psychopathic murderer to "do in" a foolish old English matron. Well Written "Night Must Fall" is obviously very skillfully written. And with the assistance of some fine performances it seems to "play itself" to a horrific climax. As the domineering, yet gullible Mrs. Bramson, Jane Darwell is the star in every respect. Her usual position in the center of the stage matches her position among the cast. Miss Darwell performs with an ease and sincerity that must be products of a long and fruitful career. Complimenting her nicely were Steve Jenson as the Menacing killer, Dan, who turns on his charm to win her over and Geneva Peterson as Olivia, her niece with the old maid jitters." Mrs. Peterson turned in an especially restrained and carefully fashion performance. Ronald Jenkins, Dorthy Crox-ford, and Francia Oborn also turn in excellent performances in major roles. In lesser roles Charles Parker, Sandy Klein, and Susan Brown are more than adequate.

|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.|
