Will We See You At Tall Frolic' Tonite? jSec. 562, P. L. & J Weber Men Predict Prize-Packed Affair Dancing Girls and Combo to Perform, Levis and Shirts Will Be in Order . - y mm mr r Vol. 14, No. 4 CHUCK'S WAGON By George Hayward Dear readers, (both of you) take a good look at the picture in this column. Now, tell me honestly, are Chuck's ears really that big? It's been bothering y. ., him. The next i ' ; time you see t i him, reassure J, f him, won't you? --x , This isn't Chuck writing, it's his little brother, George. I caught Chuck at the typewriter dreaming up another insult- V story about my intelligence, or lack of it, so I hit him over the head and sent him to the laundry. (He should have a cleaner outlook on life when he gets back.) He'll be back in time to write the column for the next issue but until he does, I'll write the column. Chuck took me to the Weber college homecoming game, Oct. 26. (Wasn't that swell of him?) (It was the only way he could get the car.) There were a bunch of queer-looking guys with white hats on sitting in front of us and they had a bunch of crazy yells. Some of them were pretty good, but one of them I couldn't figure out. It went: Rickety rackety ree, Hit 'em on the knee. Rickety rackety rass, Hit 'em on the other knee. Everybody laughed, but I couldn't see anything funny ... it didn't even rhyme. Now it they had said: Rickety rackety ree, Hit 'em on the knee. Rickety rackety rass, Hit 'em on the 'CENSORED !' That would have made some sense. Those fraternities up there at the college are sure anxious to get members in their clubs. They'll take anybody. Before I got out of the stadium, I was invited to six rush parties and initiated three times. Chuck introduced me to Roy Parker, president of the Excelsior club. I had always thought excelsoir was something you put in packing boxes, and after meeting Roy, I felt he should be put somewhere. When Chuck introduced us, Roy grabbed my program, and autographed four pages, then with one hand he gave me a card making me a full-fledged member of the Excelsior club, while with the other hand he relieved me of five bucks. Roy may be a character but he's a swell guy. Chuck asked me which club I liked best, but I only came in con tact with a member of one other club. That was Ben Rudd from Alpha Rho Omega, and you know what a blight Ben can be on a young life. Seriously though, what I've seen and heard of the clubs at Weber college I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. Well, see ya next year. Students With Passing Grades To Be Deferred "Students who are presently enrolled in school prior to the issuance of their Order for Induction and who are satisfactorily pursuing their course of instruction should be classified as L-A. Their induction will be postponed until the end of the academic year or until they cease to do satisfactory work," according to information received from Dr. Clarke and Dr. Stratford. "Operations Bulletin No. 1 gave the local draft boards power to decide whether students would be deferred for continuance of their education." Those who do not make a preference to which branch of service they prefer prior to examination will be directed by the board, and they will have no further say as to their favorite. im - in. n WEBER COLLEGE, OGDEN, UTAH U w il V " J 1 1 ...

Keep One Eye on Area Job Picture While Outlining College Program (Editor's Note: This is the first of a series of articles designed to furnish pertinent information about job opportunities in the Ogden area, to help students prepare most advantageously thereto, and to assist them in appraising their own potentialities fairly and realistically.) Keep one eye on the text book and the other on job openings in the Ogden area! This advice was handled this week to Weber college students who are urged by guidance committee members to study employment opportunities in this region carefully, then select courses fitting individual interest, ability and job opportunity. Too many students are jumping into courses for which they are woefully ill-suited, according to the committee, because of either too little interest or too little ability. And even when these don't apply, many are signing up for classes which will not help their particular ambitions too much. Gear college work, then, to interest, ability and job opportunity, the committee advises. Where certain deficiencies are present in scholastic background, difficulties arise for both student and teacher. So do there when interest lags. But regardless of interest or ability, the need for skilled persons must be present in the labor market before full realization of ambition can be attained. During August and September, 1950, only 1.8 per cent of job openings listed in the Ogden area were for professional workers. Openings for clerical workers were 6.4 per cent of the total, with sales listings 6.3 per cent, 1290 skilled, and the remainder in the unskilled categories. Excellent opportunities exist at present in auto mechanics, carpenter and radio mechanic lines. Weber college offers splendid opportunity' for education in these fields. The guidance committee has considerable information on these opportunities and can really help students determine the occupational area for which they possess the greatest interest L and ability. Sophs, Frosh Vill Compete for Trophy Two sophomores will vie with two freshmen for the perpetual Barker Trophy in the annual Barker Extemporaneous Speaking Contest December 1. The contest will be under the direction of Thatcher Allred, chairman of the speech and drama department.The freshman contestants will be chosen from a novitiate conducted by Wayne Carver. One student will be chosen from each of the freshman basic communications classes, and an elimination contest to select the finalists will be held Nov. 29. Individual cash awards will be given the winners, and the winning class will have its name engraved on the trophy. Friday, November 10, 1950 ! Business Manager, Freshmen Leaders Now in Office Elections at Weber college last week resulted in a new business manager and freshman class officials.Glen Taylor, former president of the Engineer's Club, is the associated students business manager. Representatives to the board of control from the freshman class are: Billy Childs and Fred Ball. Officers are; Hugh Jacobs, president; Norma Creer, vice-president; Florence Farr, secretary. Mr. E. Smith Murphy of the College in commenting on the recent elections said "one thing you have to say for Senator Thomas, he Is a good weather prophet. He said 'it would be a damn cold day when Bennett beats me'.". (Wednesday was a cold day.) ,5 . - v.. I nix; at the Fall Frolic tonight are: liliom' Will Be Presented Week of Nov. 27 . Central characters have now been selected for the play Liliom, which is scheduled to be presented throughout the week of November 27. "The roster of players already appointed to the cast represents one of the greatest aggregations the community has to offer,"- according to Thatcher Allred, director of the production. The cast is as follows: Character Person Marie ;..Doris Martin Julie... Renee Glover Mrs. Muskat Gladys Sargeant Liliom Clyde Checketts First policeman Ed Herscovitz Mother Hollander: : Claire Kapple Wolf Biefield George Edgington Lingman Amos Sargeant The Doctor Wayne Carver The Richly Dressed Man Wally Greenwell The Poorly Dressed Man Dean Thueson Young Hollander....Ronald Peterson The Magistrate John Shorten Louise: Juana Cunnington Ficsur Don McKay The Carpenter Eldon McLatchie This play, written by Ferenc Molnar forty years ago, made a great impression in European thea ters and was first brought to New York in 1921. Since then it has achieved great popularity among professional players, in the universities, and in little th&aters. The hero of the story is a shiftless young ne'er-do-well and bully of Budapest. He is the pet and pride of a rowdy amusement park where he works intermittently as a barker. Liliom stabs himself after he is caught in his first attempt at highway robbery. Upon his return to earth to do one good deed, Liliom finds that he is forgotten by all. "Liliom should provide Ogden theater goers one of the best treats of recent years in community drama, "Mr. Allred also stated. Technical directions are under the supervision of Carl White. Tonight the Associated Men Students will have their Fall Frolic dance. There will be a floor show, beautiful, alluring dancing girls, free turkeys as door prizes, prizes to the boys with the brightest shirt and the prettiest girl in levies. Not only this, but the hottest combo in the entire state, the four cleffs. The dance starts at nine in the Weber Ballrom. You men will receive your tickets in the mail, and you are to pay at the door. The fee will be $1.00 per couple. A queen will be chosen from the eight contestants, and will be crowned the Queen of the Fall Frolic. Dancing Girls The dancing girls have been chosen from the Sophia Reed School of dancing. The girls are of college age, all very beautiful, and you boys can meet them if you wish. All your worries about Thanksgiving will be over if you win one of the immense gobblers which will be given as door prizes, or perhaps you would rather win a prize for the loudest shirt. You girls would probably prefer to win the prize of the prettiest girl in Levis. You may wear a print dress with an apron if you prefer. Four Cleffs The FOUR CLEFFS COMBO is considered the finest combo in the state and they feature an ac-cordian player who won the Horace Heidt contest on his Youth Opportunity show. These fellows are not only hot with a reet beat, but they can lay it out sweet and low, too. Contestants for the queenship contest are: Carol Watkins, Gloria Pratt, Donna' Sneddon, Pauline Carter, Velma Payne, Pat Green, Ila Parker, and Jo Ann Petty. The queen will be announced at the dance. Remember, tonight at nine o'clock at the Weber Ballroom. Just wear levis and loud shirts, or print dresses with aprons. The price ir, one dollar per couple for a chance at a turkey, a beautiful floor show, and a chance to dance to the FOUR CLEFFS COMBO. Come on out and cut a rug.

|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.|
