n to By Dell Foutz Orientation classes are now under way, after campus field trips and lectures on college functions. During the first week, field trips through the library, vocational building, gymnasium, and annexes were held. Some classes even went to the Bertha Eccles Hall. They weren't allowed inside, however, much to the dismay of the men. Also in these first classes talks were given by student-body officers or representatives. The subjects discussed included Weber College constitution, campus regulations, distribution of school funds, elections and student committees. The object of orientation is to develop desirable habits of study, thinking, social relationship and attitude. By becoming an efficient student, a person can readily adjust himself to the problems of work and good citizenship. Special units point out pitfalls of college failure and show factors of success in college. As the course proceeds, the teachers become acquainted with their pupils and specific instruction can be given to each one. This way the student gets help in his own study techniques and other students who don't have the same problems can be helped in their own needs. This year's schedule has about ten revisions, most of which are from student suggestions. In the future a text will probably replace the present work book, the Syllabus. 1 Colleges all over the United States have requested information about Weber's orientation class, and it has won a good deal of fame throughout the nation. The beginning of the present orientation class was back in 1936; when Walter C. Neville, present orientation supervisor'taught an experimental class, "The Sociology of Adjustment". In 1937, the late Prof. Benson had a similar class on "Educational Adjustament". Now orientation students are taught by eight instructors in varied fields. They are: Merle E. Allen, general; Sheldon P. Hayes, life science and pre-medical; Edward C. Larson, trade students; Dr. Jay Olson, general; Merlon L. Stevenson, engineering; Dr. William D. Stratford, general; Walter C. Neville, general; and Dr. Basil C. Hansen, head of the sociology department, general. A follow up study by Mr. Neville shows that 80 of the orientation students reacted favorably and considered the course of great value. Special appreciation is extended by Dr. Hansen and Mr. Neville to the following for their work and support: Don Ripplinger, student-body president; Darlene Powell, vice- president; June Clifton; secretary; Kay Shupe, treasurer; Dick Parker and Bruce Thompson, business managers; and Whip Club guides. WAGON CHUCK'S By Chuck Haywaxd You know, Freddie Freshman certainly has a lot of bad dreams, but I think the saddest one he ever told me about was the one when he almost got himself married. There he was down on his knees in front of the lady of his choice and then but let's start from the beginning. Dream music Maestro! It all began at a Weber College Student Body Dance. (Not to get off the subject, but I went to a Weber College Student Body Dance (I could abbreviate that but how would it look Weber College S. B. Dance!) Anyway, the dance was supposed to be stag. When I arrived there were eleven stag boys and two stag girls. My arrival made the odds six to one. Then two more stag boys came. The odds raised to seven to one. Eight more boys brought the odds up to eleven to one. Then the girls went home. Doctor Stratford walked over to our dejected looking group and said: "Don't feel too badly, boys. Remember for every man in this world there is a woman." One of the fellows in the group replied: "Sure Doc, we ain't complaining about that arrangement. All we want to do is get in on it." Well, this dance must have worked out better because in one of those mixer dances which are so wnoderful for getting acquainted, Freddie was paired off with a lovely brunette. She was really beautiful. Freddie finally got up enough courage to ask her to dance with him again, and while they were dancing he asked her if he mightn't accompany her home. To his great surprise and delight, she acquiesced. (Acquiesced means agreed to do so). This is for those students who didn't know what acquiesced means) (that explanation in parenthesis was for students who knew what acquiesced meant, but didn't know that other students didn't.) (And that explanation in parenthesis was for me) (I just love to write explanations in parentesis.) By this time Freddie Freshman Faintheart (That's Freddie's last name) and Fayer Leydie (that's her name, but Freddie calls her Faye isn't that sweet?) Anyway (I've got to get away from those explanations in parenthesis) (it's getting to be a habit) (See what I mean?) As I was saying, Freddie and Faye had been going steady for about eight years and Fredd'.e decided to propose. (He doesn't believe in long engagements.) As he was walking to Faye's house he had his little speech all prepared, but when he got there he was shaking so badly (I don't like that phrase "shaking badly" the truth was, he was very good at shaking in fact, he was perfect.) Anyway, he was shaking so well he couldn't ring the doorbell. So, he pulled himself up straight (using his ears.) (I presume.) took a deep breath, held it for questioning, and was about to try to ring the doorbell again when it opened (the door, not the bell.)

Or perhaps a "Classy Clara?" The answer is simple. Visit the only college cosmetology class in the state of Utah. It is located in the vocational building on the Weber College campus. An invitation is extended to all students to visit the department and receive some of the many beauty hints and treatments this course provides. Hair styling, hair shaping, manicures, tinting, bleaching, permanent waving, facials, and eyebrow arching and tinting are some of the beauty aids the students are being trained to employ. Eleven girls are taking the course this quarter. A dual program is being tried this year, according to May B. Watson, instructor. Girls who plan to graduate from the course in one year are required to put in 1500 working hours. Students who are taking two years to graduate carry four credit hours a day. When the course is completed, the graduates are eligible to take the State Board examinations in order to receive a license to practice. And, boys, don't forget! You're invited too.

Be Speaker Adolphe Menjou, world famous movie actor and raconteur, will appear at Weber College Tuesday, October 17 at 8:15 p.m. Mr. Menjou who is one of the pioneers in the motion picture business, has won international acclaim as a dramatist and entertainer. He began his acting career early in the century making pictures in both New York and Hollywood when the industry was still in its infancy. He has worked with many of the great artists in the field of entertaining, and has won his place among the greatest. His life has been devoted to the entertainment of others, a devotion that has been a service to thousands who have seen and enjoyed his performances. W.C. Debators Get Underway Resolved that thenon-communist nations of the world form a new world organization.That is the question that will be batted around in the debate classes at Weber College and other institutions throughout the country. The first debate trip will be to Pepperdine College in Los Angeles. Only a few teams will be taken. Mr. Green will make a speech to one of the groups of Southern California speech groups that he has been working with. It will be based on' the place speech has in basic communications. Band and 'Bagpipes' Accompany Team The Weber College band is helping to make the invasion of Comp-ton, California, a major offensive. The football team won't be without support when they go against Compton tomorrow night, because Weber's 61 member band went along, "bag and bagpipe." "This year's band rates among the very best," announced Delmar Dickson, director. Other activities planned for the quarter include an instrumental concert for late November and numerous concerts at neighboring high schools. The cosmetology department's free beauty service is so tempting that even boys are getting the "works." Above left to right, Ardith Kapp, Lloyd Ferguson, Lola Taylor, Joyce Spanogle.

|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.|
