Al Holmes MAN, DIG THEM CATS Here s Player Data By John Hale What kind of a team does it take to win the ICAC? An excellent one, of course. What kind of a team wins regional crowns and berths in National playoffs? A superior team. What kind of team wins National Championships? The best team. Weber's team proved itself the best in every way at Hutchinson, Kansas. The outstanding cagers and their luscious cheering section were given the key to the city and left with the love and the metal, trophies, that is, of the city. The exciting statistics and story of how Weber landed its first NJCAA has been well told in the last few weeks. Best to Give Ulcers What kind of players were the ten men who converged into the mightiest machine to ever give a coach ulcers. Al Holmes, the tournament's most valuable player, played high school ball for Phoenix Union High School in Arizona. Al's team played 5.") games before its one loss, which placed his school in athird-in-state position. Needless to say, Al was All-State in Arizona. Last year, attending Weber on a scholarship, he joined the ranks of the Ail-Americans.Al loves Weber and the students who are, in his words," the greatest." The attachment between Al Holmes and Weber College will not be forgotten. He will always be Weber's "All American." Carter Is Mainstay Joe Carter, one of the few freshmen to make the All-Tourney team, captained the Rock Springs, Wyoming, team to third place in state competition. In tournament broadcasts the most common phrase was, "The ball is stolen by Carter, layup, good." If he comes back next year, Weber will have its keg of dynamite ready for another season. (Continued on Page 4.) Shrew Cast "The Taming of the Shrew," the next Weber College dramatic production, is now going full speed ahead according to H. E. D. Red-ford, director. The 'Shrew' is a Shakespearean farce about how a man tames his wife. It is also about how to woo and win a woman. The 'Shrew' is considered to many to be one of Shakespeare's more humorous plays. "If you don't think the 'Shrew' is a hilarious play," said Mr. Redford, "you don't know what a humorous play is." The cast includes Carolyn Lind-sey, H. E. D. Redford, Robert Mik-kelson, Lawrence Burton, Ronald Jenkins, Pat Behling, Robert Wood, Russ Hagen, and the members of the Weber College basketball team. The production is scheduled for April .'!, May 1 and May 2. Student director is Colleen Keyes.

Every week a council made up of the several division heads plus 'all other administration people under the direction of Pres. William P. Miller meet to discuss future plans. This council is required to discuss and solve the numerous problems involving the make-up of the curriculum to be offered in the four year institution. Things such as future opportunities and requirements of the surrounding area niuat be considered before any decisions can be made. The question of junior college identity plus the tour-year program and graduation must also be considered.

|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.|
