An Even Greater WeberLast year Weber college was named one of the fifteen best junior colleges in the United States. Increased classroom space, new modern facilities, expanded curricula, a larger faculty, and an enlarged extra curricular program, all ready and waiting for a record smashing student enrollment, will assure parallel or even greater recognition this year.Weber has long been a recognized leader in terminal and transfer education capable of giving to its students a variety of academic or vocational courses, instructed by a highly competent faculty, that equals or surpasses that of any lower division institution in the rocky mountain area. Weber graduates of the pre professions, humanities, social sciences, and other departments, have been leaders in higher division classes of the nations universities.Nor is Weber a school where all is study with no play. Student body officers have promised the most active year in the schools history, beginning with the Flaming W Hike September 20. A strong Wildcat eleven, who are expected to trounce all comers, will meet the McKinley Mikalums from Hawaii in a battle that is expected to match anything in the college's fifty years of football thrills. The Weber basketball quintet, last years intermountain jaycee hoop champs, will seek top competition among western teams.Looking at the whole picture, it appears that Weber is on the threshold of its greatest year in all departments and activities. It is another realization of the Weber family's constant cry for a Greater Weber College.Fall CalendarAnnounced by Student WheelsTentative announcement of the fall quarter social calendar for student body activities was made on September 4 by the Board of Control, governing body of the student association.Events are being given the starting push by the traditional Flaming W hike to Malans peak and will be followed by Idaho State College football game and a get acquainted dance on Sept. 26; Mesa college football game and tentative weiner roast on October 3; Mickalums of Hawaii centennial football game, parade and dance on October 10 with a rally on October 9; homecoming football game with Compton, national JC football champs; parade and dance on October 24; student body halloween party on October 31; thanksgiving dance and student body party on December 12.Other events being planned for the fall quarter social bandwagon include the sophomore class Orchid Ball and the Phoenix club Snowball.Mecham Leads Eleven Stiff Slate Starting Sept. 26 With Idaho S.Four Home Games Slated;Wellman and Gardner AssistWebers gridders to the tune of 55 first rate men climbed into practice sessions beginning Tuesday with high hopes for the greatest football season in the history of the college.Scheduled to open the four home game series against Idaho State College of Pocatello on September 26, the 55 men began practice for two periods a day under the direction of Head coach Milt Mecham and assistant coaches Guy L.
