XX, NO. 8 OGDEN, UTAH JANUARY 30, 1957 Announcement of the friendliest girl on campus highlights the annual friendship banquet, held February 6, at 7 :30 P. M., in the Bertha Eccles Hall, sponsored this year by Sharmea social club. All coeds will have a chance to vote for the friendliest girl, but only sophomore girls will be eligible for the honor. Girls will list on ballots the five girls they feel to be the qualified sophomore girls on campus. The girl with the most write-ins will be the chosen, friendliest girl. In addition to the announcement, a program, consisting of numbers by the Voce Coeds, a reading by Patsy Seegmiller, and a piano solo by Barbara Winters, will be presented. Toasts to friendship will be given by each of the four girls' social clubs and the independent girls. The banquet was instituted some years ago to eliminate the enmity which existed between the girls' social clubs. LaDianeda was the first club to sponsor the banquet. Since that time the banquet and choosing of the friendliest girl on Weber's campus have become a tradition. Now, each girls' social club takes its turn at hosting the banquet. Past friendliest girls will be in attendance at the banquet. All girls on campus are invited to attend one of the nicest functions of the year.

Wants Ruling Clarified Sign Up Now forGraduat'n All students planning grad uation spring quarter must sign up immediately in the registrar's office. The deadline for registration was last quarter; however, special concessions are being allowed for stragglers who sign up immediately. Dr. Stratford treated the entire Council to do-nuts and pop, as a result of his bet that the students couldn't fill even the lower deck at CSU-Weber game. He lost, much to the pleasure of the Inter-club Council and the team. After everyone had been served, members turned to hashing a plan proposed by the administration and a special committee to curb drinking. A copy of the plan was issued to each club last time and sug gestions asked for this time. The first two rules stated that all clubs and members wil lobey Interclub rules or be subject to punishment meted out by the Council Judicial Committee. Rules number three and four declare that all student members will conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen at all times and should never act in any way to bring discredit to the college. Rule five stated that the clubs should recognize the social pressure put on the college by churches, customs, etc. This rule was finally pared down to read, "Due recognition should be given by the social units and other factors of the college to the customs of this community and the code of ethics sponsored 'by the various churches. Rule six is designed to protect members of the various clubs who do not drink or smoke. The idea is well thought out but poorly phrased. The first two sentences read "We must also recognize that many members of our clubs do not drink or smoke. Many are uH-riht and moral." After discussion it was decided that if you drink or smoke you are not necessarily immoral. The debate will be finished in the next meeting of the Interclub Council. 0t9 Exeeis Vie For Titles k Annual Co-Sponsored Canoe The annual Sweetheart Ball, to be held next Friday in the White City Ballroom, is presented by the combined forces of Otyokwa and Excelsior, two of the leading social clubs on campus. The music will be furnished by Dell Bush, dance band of this area. Under the direction of Garr Smith and Donnette Ralph, Presidents of the clubs, preparations are being made for an outstanding evening. Tickets for thesemi-formal affair will be two dollars per couple, and may be obtained from any Otyokwa or Excelsior member. According to Ralph McEntire, Vice President of Excelsior, corsages will not be in order. An intermission program will be held to name the "Sweethearts" of , the dance. Candidates were chosen from the Freshmen students of the two clubs. They are: Sherol Thor-stensen, Joan Magdiel, Shirley Jennings, Deanna Parker and Linda Shaw from Otyokwa. Roger Cox, Dick Baker, Walt Higgens, Brent Heap and Bruce Jackson are candidates from Excelsior. One man and one woman will be chosen from these groups to reign over the affair. The Sweetheart Ball is an annual dance which has drawn good crowds for several years now, and according to the officers in charge, this cne will be no exception. Comic Songs Tickle All At Songfest Roars of laughter from students and amused chuckles from faculty members checked off this year's "Sing Fest" as a humorous success. Sharmea took the woman's division on the strength of "Down in the Forest" and an original comic song about lonely worm and his finding of a mate. The "Pink Ladies" ran some stiff competition with La Dianeda's winning over the Swabbles by two points. There was a possible of 150 points. Phoenix, scheduled to lead off the Women's division, thwarted that attempt to cut off competition and took Men's Division with "Wagon Wheels," complete with scenery. Their comic song was a Spike Jones version of "Some Disrupted Evening." Nearest com petition was Alpha Rho Omega, whose casual representation left them minus nine points from a first place tie. Sigma drew laughs on both their serious "Whiffen-poof Song" and a localized "Tavern Song" with a "Wild Bill" slant. tors Take The Honors; ament Planned Here Deba Tourn U.S. High In iind At the last meeting of Youth for the U. N., members heard Dr. Rus-tico Camangian speak on his native land, the Philippines.

He also showed the members pictures of Manila, pointing out the University of the Philippines, which is older than any university in the United States, and the amazing job of post war reconstruction.

|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.|
