Geri Utsman Shakespeare's contributions to the world touch us here from time to time, but perhaps never before so forcefully as in Weber's recent production of "Hamlet". There is much of Hamlet in each of us. He was a sensitive man, an idealist and perfectionist when he returned home from college to find his father, the King of Denmark, dead and his mother planning marriage to his father's murderer, Claudius. His personality could not hold up under the responsibility thrust upon him. In his quest to accomplish what he knew to be his duty, he was thrown into an internal anguish from which he could not emerge. In HED Redford's portrayal of the young Hamlet, we can see frustration and sensitivity, but we also catch fleeting glimpses of sincere passion to correct the wrongs of his surroundings. We did not see Redford, we saw Hamlet upon the stage. What greater compliment can we give an actor who so loses himself in the characterization, that we, the audience, forget he is the teacher we see strolling through the halls every day ? Supporting Cast Shakespeare's Ophelia is a shy, feminine wisp of a girl so pathetically frail that she goes mad. Francia Oborn gave us a new and fresh type of Ophelia. The audience found themselves affected by, and engulfed in, her tragic situations.Polonius, Lord Chamberlain of Denmark and Ophelia's dottering father was played admirably by Morgan White. Spouting words of fatherly advice and showing great concern over Hamlet's dishonorable attentions to his daughter, Polonius was the comic of the play. Audience response to Mr. White's performance was very enthusiastic.Other thespians who also turned in a good performance were: Carolyn Lindsley as Gertrude, Queen of Denmark; Robert Peters as Claudius, King of Denmark; Richard Nealson as Polonius's son, Laertes; Larry Chandler who played a double role of Osric and Lucian-us; Ronald Jenkins, Bill McCaf-ferty, Lee Malan, Bob Van Dyke, Mike Oborn, Joan Taysom, Ray Huffman, Dee Hill and the numerous Lords and Ladies of the court. Special Effects Thatcher Allred gave us a spine chilling, though unseen, performance as the Ghost of Hamlet's father. Special attention should be given to the excellent lighting arrangements and special affects as were 'seen in Hamlet's conversation with the ghost, the grave digging scene and many others that permeated the entire production.The absence of unnecessary staging directed the audience's entire attention to the players, which gave a more impressive response to the prevailing tragic atmosphere of the play. Many of Ogden's leading dramatic patrons were extremely impressed by the Hamlet presentation. Alice Pardoe West, of the Standard, was in the opening night audience and gave "Hamlet" an approving verbal applause in her column.

|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.|
