Anything Goes Send Your Problems By SIG PONT With this issue, kiddies, the Signpost starts a new column. The idea of this column is to hand out j motherly advice to girls and "boys who need it, all the way from how to get more money out of the old man to the art of snagging that boy with the red convertible.So, if any of you cats have any problems of this kind or any other nature, write them on any old piece of parchment that happens to be lying around and take it to the treasurer's office, or address it to Anything Goes, co Signpost, Weber College, and drop it in the nearest mailbox. (The one on the corner of 25th and Jefferson will probably get it here the fastest). Also included in the column from time to time will be bits of scandal picked up around the cam- ipus (so watch yourself) and this i reporter's analysis of the various subjects. The column is primarily intended for those on the campus who are able to read, but we hope that others will attain some small enjoyment when having it read to them. Since this is the first number, we don't have any letters to answer, so I dug up a couple of things which I hope will serve as an adequate substitute. It seems for about three days running uproarious laughter was heard emanating from the 9 a.m. Philosophy class. Investigation revealed that the reason was the name of Marilyn Monroe had been mentioned in the discussion not infrequently. Now there are those who maintain that Marilyn Monroe is not a laughing matter. This reporter wonders just what the NOVEMBER 13, 1953 OGDEX, UTAH ''V ' V 4 V ' i- V V TY i" To "Daddy" connection would be. We would like to ask Jim Anderson "Just how Philosophical can you get?" We shall now take up that fabulous phenomeon which we blandly call the "joke" that the professor inserts in the middle of his lecture. The reader will notice that the professor invariably receives a hearty laugh from the class whether it is appropriate or not. Thi" reporter has deduced that the laughter falls into four cate gories: (1) the professor laughs for obvious reasons; (2) at least two members of the class laugh I because ..they don't know that it : ii c fH nf V, 1511 I lUllliy, lO) UllC-Ildll KJL Lilt class laughs because they think the professor should get something for trying; and (4) the rest of the class laughs because the others look so funny trying to assume a forced laugh. Recommendation: A new edition of the Professor's Joke Book. Well, little ones, that does it for this edition. Don't forget to send in your problems according to the above directions or you will have to live with this stuff . for the whole year. This is living?

Julian R. Stephens, alumni president, and Farrell Collett, general chairman, announced that a full slate of festivities have been planned for this year's homecoming. Homecoming activities will commence this morning at 11:00 in the auditorium with the presentation of the annual alumni assembly. Julian R. Stephens will be M. C. of the program. ; "The Varsity Vignettes," a student assembly, will be presented tonight at 8:00 in the Ogden High School auditorium. The assembly will last approximately two hours, and it promises to be full of laughs. A cast of nearly 100 will perform 20 acts during the show. A large crowd is anticipated to support this homecoming event, and the speech department would like it to be known that no admission will be charged and no seats are reserved. yA few hints concerning the theme of the assembly are the words "Creeping Weberism." Weber actors will portray the presidents of some of the Utah colleges and universities, and quoting John Kelly "we are going to roast the 4-ycar schools." Performing on the assembly will be: The Men's Glee Club, The Voci Coeds, The Weber Dance Band, The Musettes, Ann and Jean Nebeker, The Weber Ballet Corps, Carol Smith, Keith Knighton, Janet Waldron, Brent Heninger, Su- zy Allen, The Majorets, Carol Fay Farnsworth, Carol Jensen, Shirley Snow, The Girls' Quartet, and Mark Wood. The script was written by Wayne Carver, and is under the direction of John Kelly, Glen L. Hansen, and Colleen Miller. Saturday's activities will start off with a bang. Students are asked to meet at 23rd and Washington Blvd. before 11:00, where they will form a snake dance and then cheer and dance to the front of the municipal building, where the annual pep rally will start at 11:00. Homecoming activities will come to a climax Saturday at 1:30 wh?n the Weber Wildcats clash with the U.S.A.C. frosh. Halftime activities will feature eight minutes of fun. A reception and a matinee dance will be held in the Gym building, beginning at 4 p.m. ' The last attraction on the homecoming program will be the University of Utah's play "I Remember Mama." The play will be presented Saturday night at 8:30 in the Ogden High School auditorium. The play is a comedy, and it stars a well-known alumnus of Weber, Lila Eccles Brimhall. Four committees, headed by Farrell Collett, John Kelly, Paul H. Huish, and Jay Olson have combined their efforts to make this year's homecoming a success. Have You Had Your Picture Taken? Xumber 3 YEARBOOK? $64 QUERY A yearbook with all the trimmings, including hard cover, high quality prints and paper, has been the proposal facing the board Uf control the past few weeks. At a conference of Junior college student body officers held in Phoenix, Arizona, last summer, John Elzey, student prexey, reports that a great majority of the colleges represented have found ways to produce very nice yearbooks. Other officers were "amazed" to find that a college with Weber's size and rating did not have a yearbook. By acquiring six hundred dollars from the Scribulus fund and charging four dollars per book, an estimated $2600 could be raised toward paying the total cost of about $3200. The $600 balance could be supplemented by the use of ads, the selling of additional copies more than the estimated number of five hundred, or, it was suggested by Fred Rabe, head of the photography department, that we sell individual yearbook pictures to students at fifty cents each. "Certainly a Weber College yearbook would seem to be in reach at this price," was Dr. Clarke's expression to the proposal. Dr. Clarke was surprised to find that a yearbook of high quality, could be made available at such a low price. The book, if published, would be the first since 1948. J. R. Foulger reported that due to extremely high priced plates, paper and cover, a loss of approximately $3,000 stopped publication of that type of yearbook. With new methods of printing, a plan has been devised to eliminate most of the expense involved in the old publication, and opens the way to a permanent annual yearbook with approximately 100 pages. The tentative, plans will depend on what develops in the next few weeks, concerning all the proposals' for publication, finances, etc. A committee headed by Myrna Larsen, student bodyvice-president, is already hard at work on the plans. An echoed opinion of the board, was that "without the support of all the students the yearbook will remain just a plan, how about it? Beautiful Girls Vie for Title Homecoming Queen elections began Monday, Nov. 9 with a large list of lovely ladies in line for the honors. The crown will go to one of the following: Evelyn Beiler, Jean Bingham, Jackie Collins, Kathy Coop, Donna Endrizzi, Holly K. Granville, Geri Harbertson, Marilyn Henrie, Ann Howell, Marilyn Johns, Judy Johnston, Ann Knight, Laree Lamborn, Vivian Peet, Carol Vee Robinson, Connie Sipherd. Final elections were held Tuesday, Nov. 10, and the lucky lady will be "first" lady for the homecoming activities.

|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.|
