v yv- -. v. - WEBER COLLEGE, OGDEN, UTAH, MAY 2, 1952 Number 11 Volume XV Student Leaders Picked for 1952-53 By Record Vote Final tabulation in a record-breaking upset student body election disclosed the student leaders for 1952-53: President, Val Lofareen; vice-president, Jane Powell; secretary Raelene Sommers; Treasurer, Allen Cook; business manager, Tom Burton. A vote of over 300 in the finals broke Weber's previous record and topped the average 185 total by nearly 150 ballots. Voting was upset during the finals held April 18 when two strong write-in candidates for president, Glen Dickson and Byran Renstrom, kept either of the finalist from reaching the necessary majority. Three students running for vice president as a result of a tie in the primaries also resulted in a lack of majority. These two offices were voted on again the following jVLon-day, April 21. Finalists in the elections included Val Lofgreen and Myron Child for president, Janet Powell and Shirley Burns vice president, Raelene Sommers and Barbara Birkhead secretary. Allen Cook and Paul Furlong treasurer, Tom Burton and Kent Weathers business manager. cat taiee Torai , . 1 , J"- ' i y '' .: .

|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.|
