The action of this play concerns a girl whose father and two brothers are worried as much about her becoming an old maid as they are about their dying cattle. The brothers try every possible scheme to marry her off, but without success. Nor is there any sign of relief from the dry heat. When suddenly from out of nowhere appears a picarespue character who promises to bring rain, for $100. It's a whacky idea, but the rainmaker is so refreshing and ingratiating that the family finally consents. Forthwith they begin banging on big bass drums to rattle the sky; while the rainmaker turns his magic on the girl, and persuades her that she has a very real beauty of her own. And rain does come, and so does love. The Supreme Court ruled last Friday, March 29, that the Student Body Elections were null and void.

The rules and procedures for conducting" the election of the Student Body Officers shall be formulated by a Student Council composed of the legislative and executive branches of the student government. This Student Council is created under Article XI, Section 2 of the Constitution. Second, the Primary election was not conducted in accordance with the rules in the Constitution. Some candidates names were "left off the ballot while others who were not qualified or eligible were placed on the ballot. Also there was no provision for stipulating how the voters were to cast their ballots for the various offices. There was no method of determining students' status as far as class standing in order to be eligible to vote for class officers. It was also noted that the provision for secret ballot was not followed. Ballots were left unattended at the booths and many students could have voted more than once. Article VII, Section 1, subsection (b.) was also interpreted by the court pertaining to grade point average of a candidate. The cumulative grade point of 2.0, shall be those grades and credits completed and accumuated at Weber State College only, and not of other institutions- A new time for the nominating assembly and the start of new elections will be announced by the Student Council in the near future.

|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.|
