A freshman, he 11 be back for another go next year. if " ''TO 4 Vi Basketball Coach Bruce Larson welcomed two new additions to the Wildcat squad this quarter. Joining Weber after a quarter at Utah State University is Dick Connolly, six-foot, one-inch guard, who was an all region basketballer at Ogden High last year. Jim Brit-tain, another OHS player, will add his 0 feet and five inches, to a Weber team that sorely needs some height. Brittain played for the University of Utah freshman last year. Brittain made the high school all-state team year before last. Last Monday's 80-43 rout of Dixie marked one of the few occasions this year that Weber has used the fast break offense. Usually the "weaving" Wildcats play a deliberate offensive game, setting up each basket with screens off their "clearing" offense as Coach Larson calls it. l" -lift' ' m l W; I fl f UA-? 4-if ? , If I a ' :ri i A1- - & A Alan Holmes will take a 19 point scoring average into tonight's game against Carbon.

Bras a nesmans ur a Group On W ganize Hew eber Camnus Foreign Envoys Speak; Sited Light On Problems Students of the Social Science department have had the privilege so far this year of hearing two of the most informed people available talk on the problems in the Mid-East. Earlier in the year, the students impossible ii Army Jeep Last night before an appreciative audience, we made the "Impossible Tour" displayed the adventurous blood of Helen and Frank Schrieder. The Schrieder's presented a color film of their 20,000 mile trek across the Religious lectures in con the North and South American continents in a converted, Army amphibious jeep. Their trek initiated near Fairbanks, Alaska, in negative temperatures only to be culminated in South America's tropical heat. During this IS-month pursuit of adventure the Schrieder's escapade ranged from being condemned by natives as sea monsters to being swept into cliffs by the Magellan Straits. This journey marked history as the first automobile trek across the two continents. H E D Redford made a snowball and started it rolling down a hill. It's getting bigger and bigger and people are starting to notice it. This "snowball' is a new honorary drama guild ; but that's not its name. Jusl what its name is has not yet been decided. Only Workers Not just anyone can join the new group, for its requirements hint only workers can get in. These are, both a major and a minor roll in Weber College's productions (plays and operas); or two major rolls; or three minor rolls. Persons in a production that will guarantee entrance are pledges until the show is over, then they are voted upon by the present members. No Lounging Mr. Redford and Mr. Rowlev want to make it clear that although this is an honorary guild, it is not the type whose members sit in large overstuff chairs with hi?h backs. On the contrary, the club has already pitched in to present an assembly next Thursday, Jan. 23rd. It promises to be one of the unique assemblies of the year, with the theme AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS or HAVE BALLOON, WILL TRAVEL One of the members, Sam Crawford, will debut new types of sound to the Weber College audience. This along with new lighting techniques and staging tricks will promise a new dimension in assemblies.The membership of five girls and twelve men of the club have chosen Paul Farr, President; Richard Nealson, Vice; and Francis Oborn, Secretary. listened to an envoy of the Arab League. Last week, they heard a representative of the Israeli nations. These lectures have given the students a better understanding of the problems facing these people. More to Come These talks are sponsored by the Social Science Department which is headed by Dr. Dello G. Dayton. Dr. Dayton says that the department is planning to sponsor two of these informative lectures each quarter. lhe department is also sponsor- junction with the evening school. Heard By All The lectures on international relations can be heard by any class who wishes to have the sound turned into their room. The space is limited at room 143 which makes it impossible for the complete studentbody to convene there. The PA system can be utilized by any group wishing to get in on the discussions, however. These lectures and discussions are of particular interest to students of international relations and political science. mums ieaih 0 no? fcsigmeer Weber's "weaving" Wildcats go after their 12th win in 16 starts, and a second ICAC victory tonight at 8, against Carbon College at the lower campus gymnasium. Last Monday the Wildcats routed Dixie Junior College 80-43 in a completely one-sided game here in Ogden. Carbon has also beaten Dixie, 78-61. Stalwart Starters Basketball Coach Bruce Larson is expected to start Alan Holmes and Frank Berrett at forward; Ron Swenson at center and Roger Tomlinson and Blair Fowers at guards. In ICAC play to date, Weber has a 1-1 record, having lost to Boise 05-01 last Saturday night on the floor. The Broncs are defending ICAC champs and, along with Weber and Ricks College, are early favorites for the ICAC title. Fowers Speaks Blair Fowers, six-foot guard, was the sparkplug in the annihilation of Dixie. Fowers repeatedly broke through the Flyer defense and scored 18 points to take scoring honors. The Wildcat defense stiffled Packy Fenn, Dixie's scoring threat, with 14 points, most of them in the second half after Weber had salted the game. Also on the ICAC schedule tonight will be a game between Snow and Ricks at Rexburg, Idaho. Tomorrow night Boise will entertain Snow and Carbon will journey to Ricks. t1 The loss of a good friend and ardent supporter of Weber College added a sorrowful note to campus life last week.

Participants are rehearsing the production three hours a day, five days a week, plus week-ends. Of primary interest in the preparation of the musical comedy is the size of the production itself. There are approximately fifty speaking roles consisting of two or more lines. In addition to the main characters there are approximately twenty chorus members, thirty dancers in the corps de ballet, and forty orchestra members. All these BULLETIN The annual Intcrclub sponsored "Songfest" will be held January 29 at the Moench Auditorium at 8 p. m. The songfest is a competitive affair between the men's and women's social clubs of the College.Each club is preparing two numbers for presentation. One must be of a serious nature and the other an original one. parts ai-e being filled by students, and include quite a varied representation football players, VIP's, music and drama majors and nurses many of whom have never participated in a play of this type before. This tremendous number of people constitutes a big lighting and costuming problem. Complicated Sets Another vast job will be the designing and construction of sets. There are eight set changes involved during the course of the presentation, including the interior of a railroad coach, a loading dock of a cattle boat, and a ballroom. More Expected The size of the expected audience also plays an important factor in looking forward to the final performances. Last year, the 1995 capacity of the Ogden High School auditorium came within 100 of having to put out "standing room only" signs. An even bigger crowd is expected to be present at "Annie." The production is under the direction of Glenn L. Hanson, managing director, H. E. D. Redford, stage director; Ralph D. Marsden, orchestra director; Ron Ross, choreographer; and T. Leonard Rowley, scenic artist.

|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.|
