Al Giertsen and his orchestra will play for the even, which will take place Saturday, December 18, in the Weber College ballroom. A queen will be chosen from three girls: Annette Maycoek, Lyle Ann Hunt, and Sheryl Burnett. Phoenix in the past has provided one of the year's biggest events in the Snowball. It will be unique again, as all the members will form a line by the candidates to be rewarded by a kiss. Tickets can be purchased at the door or from any Phoenix member for $1.50. Dear Sant, We would like to ask your help to make someone who is very near and dear to us very happy this Christmas. "Big-hearted Al," as he is AFFECTIONATELY called, has become very downhearted this year as usual for the gay season. Could you bring him a class of real students? He seems to always get "just a bunch of phonies" in his classes and it proves to be very trying. Anything you can do for this poor, dejected soul will be appreciated by all of us who love him. Love, Your Fan Club. P. S. If you can manage it, Mr. Moench needs an overcoat because it's cold out in the front yard. MANY COUNTRIES MANY CUSTOMS By Lynnette Richards In Mexico they deck the halls with boughs of flowers. The most common of the flowers is the "Noche-Bueno" to us, poinsetta. These Central Americans celebrate Christmas for nine full days, spending each night at a different house. The crowning event of each evening is the breaking of the "Pinata," a great earthenware bowl disguised as birds, fish, fat men and women, and other odd shapes; covered with colored tissue paper and bright tinsel, and filled with candies, sweet meats and toys. Church of Nativity In Bethlehem Christmas means religious services. First a great procession -of religious personages, followed by the commoners, winds into the Great Church of the Nativity, where religious services are held all night long. Before the services begin, the procession descends to the "Grotto of the Nativity." On leaving the streets are quiet and the faces lack the joy and anticipation common in many lands. Christmas Cards Switzerland, a snow- bound Christmas card is filled with tinkling bells and laughter for this is the greatest festival of the vear. This is when "Christkinl" (Christ child) walks on earth. Every home has a Christmas tree, covered with all sorts of decorations and goodies, around which the whole family sings carols. In many homes, the Nativity story is read from the great family Bible. But in every land, whether warm or cold, whether the people be dark-skinned or light, Christmas is love.

|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.|
