let Dear Students . . ointments Out Soi By Francia Oborn Note of clarification: Contrary to some speculations, "Letters to Lucerne" has nothing to do with a note to the milkman. The play, which is being- presented Dec. 2-0 in the Arena Theatre, takes place inside a finishing school in Switzerland just prior to the outbreak of World War II. Girls representing England, France, Hungary, Germany, and the United States attend the school. The conflict which the War creates in the lives and friendships of these girls is portrayed through the letters they receive from then homes. Plays Olga Carol Ann Lepley plays Olga, the Hungarian girl: Sandy Klem- steuber is the French Felice. Americans Bingo Hill and Sally Jackson are played by Judy Conrady and Pat Behling. Susan Brown is Erna, the German girl; and Judie Vaughn plays Marion, the English girl. Besides giving their characterizations that final polishing, these girls are busy rounding up nightgowns, negligees, and pajamas to wear in the play's two dormitory scenes. Director H.E.D. Redford asks that anyone having extra of the aforementioned will please contact Janet Bell, his assistant. Other players in the cast include: John Stevens as Gustave, Trudy Iverson as Miss Linder, Dee Hill as Hans, and Bill Higley as Francois. Remember: Moench Arena Theatre, Dec. 2-C, 8:30.

Svmnhonv 0 1 IT Pass the Turkey---Out By Mike Parker A Meleagris gallopave, as far as I'm concerned, isn't worth such a long name. The citizens of the U. S. must agree with me, because they call it a turkey, too. In spite of the fact that the bird is not worth nineteen letters, peo- i pie of the U. S. still dish out $50,- 000,000 for the blasted birds every November. A turkeyless Thanksgiving to Americans is as formidable as a recurrence of the Plague. I have four major dislikes: rock 'n roll, Asiatic flu, my turn to buy, and turkeys. I would rather have a Thanksgiving dinner consisting of dandelions, stale bread, and moldy cheese. Why people love this bird so much is a real mystery. It isn't pretty. It's hard to cook. It's expensive. It's tough usually (unless UTAH November 26th, 1958 ue in ugaen riday Evening According to Dr. Clair Johnson, the Symphony is receiving great popularity here and is responsible for raising the cultural level of the entire area. It is urged, however, that all those attending this or any concert be in their seats at 8:15. Complaints have been raised recently with regard to late-comers. soaked in acid), and it's as tasty as a mouthful of hot sand. The only point in its favor and flavor is its endurance (usually five to six days after the big blast.) It's also superb for a variety of repulsive specialties; i. e. a miserable casserole, a stew, a sandwich, or noodle soup. My dog is a 15 pound appetite. She will eat left-over potato peelings, horse radish, straight butter. and whole coconuts. Turkey meat will make her turn into a finicky sniveling coward. She cowers at the smell. The sight of it makes her place her paws delicately over her eyes and whimper. It's odd that people will relish what a dog will not look at. The first Thanksgiving dinner was held in Massachusetts.

Announcement comes from the By Carole Blanken A colored film of Venezuelan wildlife, "Ranch of the Purple Flowers", will be presented Dec. 10 by the Audubon lecturer Robert C. Hermes as the first of a trio of the Audubon Screen Tours. For the fifth season, the Life Sciences Division is sponsoring authentic, colored motion pictures, narrated by the nature photographer. These are designed to arouse local interest in conservation problems through the presentation of entertaining and cultural lectures and color films. Several of the camera wild life hunters have supplied Walt Disney with much of the material that went into his "Bear Valley," "Living Desert," "Vanishing Prairie" and others. Purple Flowers Mr. Hermes, the first lecturer, was commissioned by a U.S. company operating in Venezuela to make a natural history film of that country. He spent many months on a huge cattle ranch in the basin of the Orinoco River in Central Venezuela, gathering material for his "Ranch of the Purple Flowers." There, on the llanos or plains and in the jungles he found birds, animals, and reptiles seldom seen even in zoos and museums of North America. The booked programs are scheduled as follows: Wednesday, Dec. 10 "Ranch of the Purple Flowers" Robert C. Hermes. Thursday, Mar. 5 "Waterway Wildlife" Leonard Hall. Wednesday, Apr. 15 "Great Smoky Skyland" G. Harrison Orians.

Because they were starving, the Pilgrims were suck-ered into the plot. The Iroquois, having never attended Yale, goofed. The Pilgrims ate the onions (roasted with the turkeys) and gave the birds back. Thus the Indian Wars began. This year, though, along with tens of millions of other turkey-haters will yield to the Torturous Turkey Tradition. We will all be reluctantly social as we gobble the dried-out gobbler.

Barker Speech Set Speakers of the college arise! The yearly Barker Extemporaneous Contest will be held Dec. 11, in the Moench Auditorium.

An equal number of sophomore entries will be selected from an open tryout to be conducted by Chairman Larry Evans. Current Persons Topics for discussion will be drawn from current and important persons'. The student selects his topic, prepares his speech for approximately an hour, and then speaks from five to seven minutes. The winner will receive a gold medal and his name and the class he represents will be engraved on a silver trophy. Second place winner will receive a silver medal. The contest was originated by the late James K. Barker, President of Weber Stake Academy. iority at the Western States Debate tournament being held at the University of Utah. Anxious teams from eleven western states are out for fame in this biggest speech festival of the year. Colleges and universities of these states have their five best teams in junior and senior divisions to compete. Extemporaneous speaking, impromptu, oratory, interpretative reading, and debate present stiff challenge to our veterans of the Columbia Basin Tournament. During the Basin Tourney, the W. C. speakers captured Sweepstakes. They met eight schools from four states, defeating them all to secure this distinction. Weber's shrewd debators include Carolyn Ileiner, Rosa Lee Scoffield, Mike Monson, Jim Hardy, Bob Moesinger, Mike Murdock, Charles Powell, Andy Wahlquist, Brent Wood, and John Statler.

|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.|
