Student Body Xmas Event Booms Yule Spirit Christmas spirit loomed high at the Social Committee's annual Christmas party Friday night. The main feature of the evening was the appearance of Santa Claus, who descended from the roof by way of the Gym lobby's fireplace chimney. He greeted the carolers with a cheery hello. He made them smile when he read a letter or two from the many thousands he receives every year. Santa brought along his giving spirit when he distributed gifts to various students. Other events of the evening included dancing, singing, games and refreshments. According to the authorities, the party was a success and very well attended.

'Dark Victory' Cast During Holidays , "Dark Victory", a vivid and impressive play by George Brewer and Bertram Block, is announced by M. Thatcher Allred, director of the play. It is the next production in the Ogden Community-Weber college season of plays, and is scheduled for February. Because of a shortage of time, tryouts for roles will be conducted individually, or in small combinations of candidates. All students interested in roles in this play are directed to see Mr. Allred in person, or call him for appointments. The play will be cast before the end of the holiday season to enable the cast to begin rehearsals at once, after the New Year. Within the cast of twelve is a wide variety of roles that should offer campus people some excellent acting opportunities, the director said. "Dark Victory" concerns the problem of Judith Traherne, a pleasure - loving, sophisticated, wealthy and very attractive woman of 27 who discovers she has brain cancer. "It is a dramatic play leading to a conclusion, tragic for the central character, but made stirring to the audience because of her courage and a certain inherent nobility of character, which even the woman, herself, has little awareness of," Mr. All-red commented. Musicians Give Xmas in Song "Christmas in Song," an evening's entertainment of music and verse, was presented Sunday at the Ogden high school auditorium by the Weber college music department.As a prelude, "Yuletide Memories" was played by the orchestra, under the direction of Delmar Dickson, with J. Clair Anderson at the organ. Weber college drama instructor, John G. Kelly, acted as narrator. Glenn G. Hansen, former Ogden (Continued on page 3 col 2) PHOENIX'S MARILYNNE HENRIE ' : GWEN HUBBABD BETTE ANN WOOLSEY ioard Pushes Campus Transfer Approval of the complete transfer of Weber college, except for two building, to the Mt. Ogden campus will be sought today and Friday of the Utah State Board of Education, reported Dr. Henry Aldous Dixon, Weber president.The proposal cleared the college advisory board this week and Dr. Dixon said following that action "It's quite clear what we ought to do." He added that he thought the state board will give its consent to the action. Meeting today at the college to look into the matter is a committee of the board. The board itself will meet in Ogden Friday and then will receive the committee report Latest development of the plan is authorization by the college advisory group to request of the state legislature $350,000 for construction of a vocational education building. The present building on Adams ave. would be sold. Of this proposal Dr. Dixon commented that the school has labored for years to place vocational education on a par with academic training and that now to separate the two by leaving the vocational work on the old campus would seriously impair that effort. He World Traveler Returns Lit V - -M- . 'Ill Reminiscing his travels around the world is the typical G. I. Joe, Bryan Renstrom, surrounded by Carol Lee Mills, Lou Ann McFar- lane, Nanette Gray, Kay Jon Mildon, and Sharon Gerber. French I class re-enacted events in the life of typical G. I. Joe in the annual modern language assembly Friday. "Situation's Well in Hand" was the theme of the extravaganza.The assembly, a project wholly concocted and directed by members of the French I class without faculty assistance, was a devia tion from previous years in that the whole division did not participate.Committee in charge was Bryan Renstrom, Bob Merrill and Kay Jon Mildon. Approximately twenty language students participated. added that he does not like the idea of separating any part of the day school from any other part. Exceptions, considered to be more or less forced by an agreement with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that those two structures should be maintained for education by the state or else revert to the church, will be the Gym and the Moench buildings. These will be kept as "a sort of adult education center," said the president. The new idea of moving the entire campus, with the exceptions named, broke into print recently after the advisory board, composed of leading citizens, many of them business men, examined the cost of maintaining the old campus plant. This runs in excess of $50,000 annually and is reported to involve a number of aged and temporary structures. Dr. Dixon said, however, that the move is supported by a considerable mass of data that hus been collected and that will be placed at the disposal of the state board. Among it Is questionnalrs securing the reactions of certain groups, such as night school students.The weight of this research is consilerably in favor of taking the school to the Mt. Ogden campus, it was Indicated. No sale of the downtown campus property will take effect until the new buildings are ready, it was pointed out. One of the problems would be whether to sell piecemeal or in one lot to industrial or business interests. These are among problems which will require some study, according to the official. He cautioned also that legislative approval will be necessary before present holdings can be sold. Meanwhile Weber college 'has asked the legislature for an appropriation for the next biennium of $1,192,419. The former was $882,951.

|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.|
