The Little Theater, a 13-row hall that will be the home for all of Weber's future plays, standard stage will receive its first patrons this month. Cellar Theater will present the theater-in-the-round productions. "Pere le Temps", described by its director as an imaginative and unusual comedy drama will be the first in the new hall. Play dates are- Nov. 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 at 8 p.m. The play was written by Merle Keith Gibson, a member of the theater staff of the University of Utah, and was first performed last year by the U. of U. Theater. "The play is a vigorous, highly theatrical satire on human nature and human values. It promises to be both entertaining and enlightening for its audience," said director Todd. Mr. Todd designed the production. Judy Sorensen is assistant to the director and Nancy Cheney is lighting director. M-s. Ferron Nebeker is costume mistress."To work with the playwright is an opportunity virtually enjoyed only by Broadway directors," Mr. Todd said.

|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.|
