New Car Registration Program Draws Gripes By MIKE PARKER Student puns and angry criticism have been directed at Weber's traffic registration program, specifically at car stickers and fines. Some students claim that the fines are too stiff for unregistered cars, and some have maintained that Weber has no authority to charge for stickers or to collect fines. Chairman of the Standard's Committee, Milton Meeham, refutes these points by stating that Weber has received authority from the Attorney General and the State Board ot Education to cnarge registration fees and to collect fines. "Safety for the students and faculty," he asserted, "is the principle aim of our whole traffic control program. Due to limited parking space and the threat of traffic congestion, we must enforce our rulings to keep the traffic flow safe." Used for Administration The initial 25 cents for a registration sticker and the money collected for fines is used for administration. In comparison, Mr. Mecham pointed out that a city parking lot charges 25 cents per day. The fees and money taken in from fines will also give students the convenience of a cleared park lot this winter, Mr. Mecham said. Before 8 a.m. each morning, snow will be removed and gravel sprinkled on the ice. With the exception of sticker violators, Mr. Mecham stated that the studentbody has cooperated 1(H) per cent witn tramc rules. Traffic rules, regulations, and fines for offenses are included in a traffic regulation sheet avail able at the cashier's office. ct Big Me By CAROLYN HEINER Don't worry about the loyalty of the recently elected class officers.

Sill, an Assistant to the Council of Twelve in the LDS Church and manager ot the intermountain branch of the New York Life Insurance Company, will headline a Thanksgiving Assembly on Nov. 20. "Mr. Sill has a- reputation as one of the finest speakers in the area. No student in the school will want to miss his appearance," said Floyd Woodfield, member of the program committee. The program, scheduled for 11 a.m. in the Moench Auditorium, will have music furnished by the Weber College Choir, Musettes, and J. Clair Anderson at the organ.Thatcher Allred will act as master of ceremonies for the assembly which is under direction of the Humanities division. Serving with Mr. Woodfield on the program committee are Chair-I man Delmar Dickson and Dr. Le-1 land Monson. The players include: as Mrs. Hunter, Sherry Boedeker, who won the best actress award at the State High School Drama Festival last year; as Erna Schmidt, Susan Brown, who placed as a runner-up to Sherry; and as Olga Kirinski, Carol Ann Lepley, who represented Ben Lomond High m the same contest.

Some Males Appearing in minor male roles are: John Stevens, who plays Gus-tav; Dee Hill, who plays Hans Schmidt; and Bill Higley, who plays Koppler. "Letters to Lucerne" concerns a group of girls from various countries: England, France, Germany, Hungary, and the United States, who are attending an American finishing school in Lucerne, Switzerland, just prior to the outbreak of World War II. The play's theme deals with the influence of the war upon the friendship of these girls. Director Redford notes that though the play is chronologically dated, the problem of the effects of war, or the conflict of nations upon those who stand and wait is eternal. "Letters to Lucerne" is essentially dramatic, but it has humorous overtones and should provide a pleasant and thought-provoking evening's entertainment.

|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.|
