n n i P 7U(W Campus Plans v. .-vH no'.-. Mnwr' ; 3 i ? -"rrri ir' fr..rt ifri - 1 4 , President Mlllr explains plans of the new campus to Enid Whttcomb. p VOLUME XVIII MARCH 8, 1954, OGDEN, UTAH NUMBER 10 New Courses peaking Class to be Offered Speech training today is very different from what it was in your grandparents' day, or even in your parents' time. There is a strong trend in colleges generally to design courses that are more closely related to practical needs and more closely suited to interests of special groups. In keeping with such a trend is a new course appearing among the spring quarter offerings in speech entitled "Speech for Public Performance.""This course," says. Thatcher AUred, the instructor, "is intended to help qualify students in a variety of important ways for the kind of . public appearances for which we have constantly a great demand both on and off the cam pus ... It will help us to satisfy more fully the requests we have for speakers, readers, and story tellers before clubs, schools, and church groups, and it will help us also to prepare more of the good talent we have for tournament speaking at Weber, or in contest with other colleges. Many students, it is pointed out, participate' continuously in work of this kind as a matter of course. The purpose of this new offering is to give more definite organization to effort and to provide credit on a workshop basis as is already being done in theatre workshop and radio workshop at Weber. Students wanting further details prior to registration should consult the instructor. Mass Action vAh v r t ; .; t Debate teams. Orators, and evtemp speakers took over the college during the tournament. Largest U. S. Speech Meet Is Completed Out of more than 900 students participating in the annual high school forensic tournament at Weber, six students came out in top spots. Copping top honors in men's debate were Lloyd Jenson and Dale Barker of Blackfoot, Iadho. In women's debate were Paula Deline and Mary Lou Dalley of Logan. In oratory was Allen Jacob of Carbon. In extemporaneous speaking was Russell Dauterman of East High in Salt Lake; and the "B" division was also won by an East High team. Runners-up Runners-up in the contests were: Women's, Carol Jean Cook from Davis, who went it alone and defeated some of the best teams in the tournament; men's, William Oswald and Arthur Pett from East; oratory, Karen Pool and Marian Kolby of West and East High respectively; and extemporaneous speaking, Enniss Bennett and Richard Birkell of Jordan and East. . Large Crowds The tournament, which utilized every available room on the campus, as well as rooms in the LDS Fourth and Sixth Wards, was judged by students at Weber and prominent Ogden citizens. Trophies were awarded to the winning contestants, and medals to the second place winners. The "ulcers" which Mr. Green developed as a result of this contest will have a rest for a year, and then his troubles begin all over again. Get 'Em In Today! Faculty members were reminded this week to get book orders in at once, filled in completely and signed by division chairman concerned. Farrell Sheppard said the deadline is today. rs. Hall Heads Two Committees In Charge Of Summer Transfer Classes will start next fall quarter on Weber College's new campus. This information was received from President William P. Miller in an interview last Thursday. Two committees, both headed by Mrs. Hall, have been set up in conjunction with the movement of facilities to the Harrison Blvd. campus during the summer quarter. One committee is working out a schedule by which each department will be able to move with a minimum of confusion. The other committee is working on a proposed class schedule utilizing a split campus system. At the beginning of fall quarter, 1954, all departments but the physical education and vocational departments will be in their new rooms. Also we will still use the Moench auditorium. Work Remains Quite a bit of work remains to be done in road building and landscaping before trucks can move .the various departments. First off, 'work has been at a standstill because of the bill passed in December. But now that the referendum is on the November ballot, the roads will be the first project worked on. There will be a North road and a South road leading to seven parking lots capable of holding approximately 900 cars. A cross road will connect the two main roads below the first building. Each road will have cement curbs and gutters. The road itself will be black-topped. After the roads are in, Sidewalks connecting the buildings and parking lots will be laid. Landscaping As for landscaping, it is proposed to put in a sprinkling system and a lawn in the area below the first building and stretching to Harrison Blvd. After the roads are laid, it will be easy to get to the buildings and each department will be able to move its equipment with comparative ease. President Miller stated that the grounds were so muddy this winter, that in order to enter any building, visitors had to ented the steam plant and go through the tunnel to the other buildings. President Miller showed this reporter proposed plans for a super layout some time in the future. We must remember that Weber College in on the threshold of greater development," he said. In the immediate future it is hoped to build a field house, a student union building, an auditorium, a vocational biulding, and a library. A hanger was purchased last year in California, and the steel from it will be used in construction of the field house. Also, a building has been purchased whose steel will be used in con struction of a vocational building. In all the buildings, the layout is essentially the same. There is a wide hall in each building with rooms on either side. Centrally located in each hall ' is a large double-faced clock. There are built-in lockers in each building; Cont. on Page 2 Col. 1 Spring Quarter Registration March 16, 17, 18 By ED ST.

|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.|
