Maybe one of the girls in Weber College's personal development classes wm follow m her teacher s footsteps and win a crown. Charlotte Sheffield Max-field, Miss U. S. A. 1958, is now teaching classes at Weber. They 'are held Tuesday and Thursday after noons from 2 to 3, and the same evenings from 7 til 10. Classes Overflowing In the classes, which are filled to overflowing, Mrs. Maxfield teaches the girls many things which will aid them in becoming more glamorous. They learn poise, how to speak, character, personality, dress, and many other techniques pertaining to good grooming. The former Miss U. S. A. is married to Richard Max-field. They live in Brigham City with their two children. f MRS. MAXFIELD Song Fest Rules 'All clubs participating in the Song Fest at Ogden High are required to abide by several rules," said Milton C. Mecham, Dean of Men this week. Judges wUl have the authority of disqualifying any club which violates them. Some of the rules are: 1. Each club 'will sing two songs a standard or serious musical number and a humorous song stressing originality. 2. Every club can be costumed with the maximum cost of $1.00 for each costume. 3. Each club will take up to, but not more than, 10 minutes for the actual singing of the two numbers. 4. All song titles, the name of composer, the names of accompanists, and the names of the singers participating should be handed to the chairman of the Song Fest by Jan. 22. 5. All singers and leaders must be members of their respective club with no more than two accompanists.The judges will determine the number of points given by the clubs performance in different criteria. The criteria areintonation-dynamics; tone quality- balance, enthusiasm; putting over the message interpretation and general musicianship; fluency of technique harmony; rhythmic accuracy tempo; stage presentation; effectiveness; timing of production; and membership. ShcMld students be made to graduate? In the Board of Control meeting certain officers in charge of the school feel that having two graduation ceremonies, one after two years and one at the end of four years, is not necessary for the majority of students. Walking Papers They feel that when they have received their diplomas after two yeans, they are receiving Itheir "walking papers;" also the graduates must pay for two cap and gown and graduation fees. Since, to receive your degree you must participate in graduation. They feel that a more sensible arrangement would be to let those people graduate who are in terminal courses, and those who are going on could graduate at the end of four years. The molcion was voted on and will be taken up before the faculty administrative council. Smoking The issue of smoking was also brought before the Board. The faculty feels smoking and that only a small group of students are pressuring the student body officers who are listening to them. But it must also be mentioned that the Beard of Trustees and the Chamber of Commerce have both expressed the wish that the Union Building be opened up to smoking. Maybe they would reconsider if they realized that there is a state law prohibiting smoking in a public building. Model TJ. N. The Board voted to appropriate $245 for six delegates and one faculty advisor to attend a Model United Nations meeting in San Diego, California.

|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.|
