XXI NO. 18 OGDEN, UTAH OCTOBER 25, 1957 liair : fcy-- ; f j lllli r- ' ' ' ' ' ' I 1 - '-, All Eight Lazy One, This Won't Html Barbara Harris injects sleepy freshman with the elixer of spirit and enthusiasm. Frosh will need just such "injections" if past patterns hold true, for the important elections being held today. Editorial In the past two weeks, the Freshmen of the College have been in the process of nominating candidates for their class officers. It has been brought to the attention of some of the people now in student government offices that the participation in these nominating meetings was something less than phenominal. To be trite, no one was trampled in the rush of students trying to get to the meetings. If you will just think for a minute, a very great chance has past by those of you who were too busy in the TUB or elsewhere, to take the time to help nominate a candidate for the Freshman offices. The first nominating assembly held was a terribly miserable thing with approximately 40 students attending; all of these but one, were girls, probably you men want the women to take over in the student government, it looked that way. The fact remains that another assembly had to be held, this should never have' had to be. It throws a bad light on the storied enthusiasm of college freshmen to get into things, and to make themselves a part of their institution's functions.The fact remains that you now have no more chance to nominate people, the only thing left for you to do is to vote. These officers are very important to you in everything that happens at college this year. Therefore, it is your duty to show that you are alive and enthusiastic. Get to the polls and vote, immediately if not sooner. by GERALDINE UTSMAN The final elections for new Freshman officers will be held on October 25th. All Freshmen are advised to vote for their favorite candidate. It will be necessary to bring student body tickets to the balloting stations. Two will be elected for the important position of Representative. Nominees for this office are, Roger Grimm, Niles Herrod, Mickey Pem-berton and Kathleen Shurtliff. Nominees for President are, Alan Christensen and Dave Handley. Vice-Presidential candidates are, Joann Kilts and Nancy Hollist. Running for Secretary are: Carolyn Nelson and Margo Hedges. Results will be announced at the A.W.S. Harvest Ball tonite. The students and advisors on the student board of control have worked to formulate this election but now it is up to the Freshmen to pick their officers. All Frosh are urged to vote. By SUZANNE PARKER "Autumn Nocturn," the annual A. W. S. harvest ball, features the band of Harold Geertsen tonight in the college ballroom. The dance will begin at 9:00 P. M. Tickets are on sale this morning in building four and will be sold tonight at the door for $1.25 a couple. Sponsored by the Associated Women's Students, it is the first girl's choice dance of the season. During the intermission there will be a dance number, and Wesley Bowman and Mickey Pember-ton will offer vocal selections. Decorations for the dance will follow a Halloween and harvest motif with corn stacks, scare cr-ows and black cats. Other A.W.S. officers are Carol Donaldson, vice president, and Karen Goff, secretary. Ann Dunkley, Silvia Berg, Jean Ann Stenger, Lois Jolly, Karen Peterson, and Jean Martini worked with the officers in preparing for the dance. Autumn Nocturn will be the first of many activities sponsored by the Associated Women's students. Other activities of the organization will include the Preference Ball, an assembly, a fashion show, and a banquet.

The meeting, held in room 125, was primarily for the election of new officers. Elected president was Dennis Garner of Excelsior. Candidates for secretary, Pat Welles of L. D. and Deanna Parker of 0. T. were deadlocked in a tie. The deciding vote was left to Garner who cast his vote for Parker saying, "Deanna's our sister club." Conspicuously absent at the next meeting held October 16 were the defeated candidate and the representatives of her club. Interclub is presently considering the establishment of a treasury for each club operating through the facilities of the school treasurer's office. Dr. James Foulger, W. C. treasurer, has expressed a willingness to support the action designed to produce better handling of club funds.

|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.|
