WEBER SIGNPOST COLLEGE VOL. XIX NO. 11 WEBER COLLEGE, OGDEN, UTAH MARCH 9, 1956 1 -w.f Daughter's Fritzi, Mitzi and Kitzi Franz are trying to convince Mr. Kranz and onlookers that they should be allowed to marry. These three and other performers will appear in special costumes sent from a top Chicago firm. i Two -Year Program At Weber Is 'Pilot Center' From Columbia Weber College is acting as one of eight 'pilot centers' in the two-year experimental nursing plan instigated by Columbia University Teacher's College. As a means of reducing the critical shortage of nurses in the country, the project will assist colleges to establish programs for teaching the function of the registered nursing in two years instead of the usual three. This new program, starting at W. C. in 1053, has been adopted as part of the over all junior college program. It is "educations entered" rather than "work-centered", and will help student nursing to become part of the g-eneral system of education in the country. In this way nursing students will become part of the regular student body of the college, taking part in recreational and social activities. This new system allows students enough learning experience to become proficient, but avoids meaningless and unproductive repetition. Nurses graduate from Weber with an associate of applied science degree and are eligible to write the state examination for registered nurses license. The student nursing program at Weber College is under the direction of Mrs. Ruth Stewart, assisted by Mrs. Marjorie Somers, Mrs. Loy Doss, Mrs. LaPrele Neville, Mrs. Joan Gould, and Mrs. Leola Davidson. The program operates in conjunction with Thomas D. Dee Memorial Hospital. This new nursing program draws girls from Idaho, Wyoming, and surrounding Utah areas. Enrollment Up On WC Campus Since Last Fall Two hundred thirty-three new students have swelled the enrollment total to 2!MH for the Winter Quarter. This figure includes night school, day school and off campus specials. There are 17(: day students and 1188 enrolled in night school classes. Veterans make up a fail-percentage of the total enrollment, using last quarter's figures as an example there were 1315 day students, 255 of them were veterans. This means that nearly 20 of the daytime student body falls in the vet category. The evening school absorbs nearly double that number of the total 124:',, 4S8 are veterans making nearly 40 in that category. Last year we had a total of 5578 students, including summer and evening students. Mrs. Hall predicts that this number will show an increase this year.

Miss Dorothy Thompson has long enjoyed the esteem of the American public for her forthright comments on domestic and foreign affairs. Described as "a woman who has many opponents but no enemies," she has also been called "the conscience of America." Her columns have more often been read into the Congressional Record than those of any other journalist. Miss Thompson's distinquished reputation as a brilliant political commentator is based on long years of observation of the international scene. Her syndicated columns have appeared since 1037 and her interpretative articles have been a monthly feature of the Ladies' Home Journal for nearly as long. A much-honored radio voice, she gave up regular broadcasting after World War II in favor of personal appearance on the platform because, as she says, "I much prefer to lecture within the limits that my other work makes possible, for I like to know the reactions of audiences and lecturing gives me an opportunity to visit and sound out various parts of the country." As before, students will be admitted to the lecture on their student body tickets and they are urged to attend.

|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.|
