S. the Children's Theatre. Such productions adapt children's stories to the stage, with the resulting presentations being just as polished as major productions. The newly organized Weber group, under the direction of T. Leonard Rowley, got under way last summer with "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," which played to an audience of over 2,000. The play under rehearsal at the present time is "Cinderella." Performances will begin on April 7 and run for a month. All twenty-one schools in the Ogden area will have the opportunity of seeing "Cinderella," and a special performance will be given for Weber College students on the night of April 17. Some Innovations The Children's Theater group is justly enthusiastic about the impending production; it will offer several innovations in the way of drama, at W. C The play features its own original sound track, and its own costume department, under the supervision of wardrobe mistress, Gail Elwell. The set, designed and built by Vernon Poe with art work done by Mary Ann Edwards, is especially noteworthy. Nothing is more than seven feet tall, yet everything is in completethree-dimensional perspective. Talented Cast Lead roles feature Joan See and Gaye Deamer as Cindei'ella; Dick Baker and Paul Thompson as the Prince; Betty James as the stepmother; Joan Taysom and Shirley Jennings as the two "ugly" sisters, and Trudy Iverson and Carolyn Young as the Fairy Godmother and the Queen. Also included in the cast are Jim White, Raymond Huffman, Bob Miya, and Dee Hill. Director Rowley states that "Cinderella" is a delightful play from which college students will get just as big a "wallop" as the grade school kids. APRIL 11, 1958 cancies in student government.

|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.|
