r-viw4OT , , . ipiBBltiMLD See Strongheart at the Orpheum Monday and Tuesday Dedicated to our Patriotic Students Vol. II OGDEN, UTAH, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1917 No. COMEDY BIG FEATURE OF SCHOOL PLAY When the curtain at the Orpheum theater rices at 8:15 on the eve o Monday, December 3rd, and Andrew Kasius steps into the scene calling . "Frank," another of Weber's success-f ul school plays v ill be in progress. Love, laughs and "lucre" are the features cf "Strongheart," and we are sure.cf at least the first two. Prof. Pardoe has spared no effort to perfect the scenes and players to produce mirth and the ardent love of character for character as well as the audience for the players. . Regarding the "lucre,". it depends on the students. Altho a six thousand dollar bet has considerable to do with the plot, it ' is the . cash from the sale of the tickets that is -a bit more important. With the aid and interest of the students there is no reason why the "lucre" shouldn't "roll in." Now for a word about the mirth makers.; Diminutive Ernest Wilken-son, . playing the part of a Freshman, i.-i the recipient, as usual, of rebuffs and ill-treatment from the upper classmen, especially the towering Andrew Kasius as a Sophomore. Rus-sel Petty, as Reade, a grind, a se-'rious, over-intelligent "sissy." pro- . vides additional' laughter. Theron Jones, as Billy Sanders, a bashful, but well-meaning Senior, by courtesy, and Mary- Woolley as Molly, produce s'ide-splitting comedy, with their love scene and witty expressions. - It remains for Wilford Moench as Strongheart and Grace Stone as Dor-they Nelson, to add the serious touch , to the. play by their fervent love . scene. Miss Stone had a small obstacle in the form of bashfuiness to surmount, but after a few rehearsals this' was overcome. Mr. Moench had considerable experience in last year's : p!ay which insures his ability to car- . "ry one of the leading parts. Lou Roberts, as Thorne,- executes the role of the villain in such an able manner that the audience will find ir difficult to refrain from bestowing "hisses." As a reward for his efforts we are sure the "h" will be changed to "k" after the show. Ray Lindsey as Frank Nelson and Melbourne Douglas as Dick Living-slone are gradually shaping into their ' parts as college chums. A discussion of the work of each member of the cast is impossible in this short space, but their, parts are none the less important or prepared. When the finishing touches, are applied during the next five "rehearsals there should be no anxiety "on the part of the participants of students. Tickets are now being distributee by the students and all that is necessary to make the play a financial success is conscientious work. . The ' "tickets sold by the students are exchangeable two days in advance o ' the public teat sale, which commences Friday. " This feature makes it possible to secure good seits. The play will be produced two nights, Monday and Tuesday, December 3rd and 4th. Buy your ticket today. WM. MINSON WRITES KASIUS APPROVES STUDENTS' UNIFORM DRESS MOVEMENT Fort Riley, Kas., Nov. 18, 1917. Dear Andy: I just received your wonderful paper. It came as a friend. I am hungry for my associations at home. And jou can imagine what a paper like that would do for a fellow in army shoes. Weber is a school all by itself, it stands out far in superior to any. I am here associated with fellows who have gone to school in several states, some from Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Montana,. Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, but I haven't come across one with a character so complete as one of the Weber fellows. Not saying anything about myself, hut as you know, that is I believe 1 have told you, that every man except five have either attended college or been through high school.. So you see it is a fairly educated hunch. I certainly -enjoyed reading the Herald. If you put into practice what you have recommended about the dress, you certainly will be doing a noble work. There are hundreds of fellows still in khaki, 'and it is as cold as the deuce. The woolens a soldier requires are three suits of underwear, 6 pairs of socks, 2 O. D. shirts which are woolen, 2 O. D. suits, overcoat and woolen gloves. You see how much woolen one soldier has. It certainly means a whole lot to the United States, and do you know that Utah treats a soldier better than any state in the Union? That is not only my sentiment, but all the fellows who have been there say so. The West is the only place for a soldier. Back here in any town you are sure to be shunned... And the fa.rther east you go the worse it gets. The people wouldn't turn their hand (Continued on page 2.) THE BOYS TO WHOM WE DEDICATE THIS ISSUE Ellis Barlow J.

Gibson Ray Bassett DRAFTED STUDENT EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS JULIAN NIELSEN WRITES STU-DENT BODY The following letter was received by the student body from Julian Nielsen, '17, a former student. He is now located at Camp Lewis, American Lake, Wash. Mr. Nielson was drafted and left with the second contingent from Weber county. He is anxious to do his "bit" toward winning the war. Fellow StJdents ;rd Friendf Through the kindness of your editor I received several copies of the Herald. It was just like old times back again. Our thoughts are with dear old Weber even if we are separated.There are several other W. A. students here in camp and when we get together we always talk of the good times we had there. ,We have a very pretty camp here. It is about 3 miles long and 1 miles wide and entirely surrounded by pine trees. It looks more like a training camp than when we came six weeks ago. There are more men , as one contingent came since we did. It is quite a sight to see about 30,000 men, near ly all clad in uniforms, taking their drills and learning the war game. We are all joining our. efforts to a common cause to make the world free for democracy, to suppress the German military machine and let the German people enjoy the privileges that we have. We are also here for (Continued on page 6.) Leland Venise Jones Charles Pettit Wm. C. Dalton Daniel J. Hammon A. S. Cottle Elvin Thomas Harold Ambler Jos. M. Bingham 1 CP 3 W it i ill iV! Vi 1 .4.

The dance given by .the amusement committee in co-operation with the Board of Control and Faculty was in every way a huge', success. . It was not only patronized ;by the students, but by friends of the soldier boys as well. A sum of money was raised which assures the purchase of some small token of-appreciation' for every boy who has displayed his patriotism bj heeding Columbia's call. Prof. C. J. Jensen has charge of , the purchase of these presents and they are to be forwarded to the boys as a Christmas present. . . The hall was patriotically decorated in the national colors of the Allies. Amidst these decorations and in the most conspicuous place, possible was placed the "Honor Roll." It was read by all. and brought forth the response from all that the boys had their support. MORGAN 'MAY- VISITS WEBER ASSERTS THAT: AEROPLANES WILL WIN THE WAR The last program given under the auspices of the . student body . was featured by two artistically rendered vocal solos by Mrs. -Cora T. Bird and by a speech of one of Weber's soldiers, Mr. Morgan McKay. It opened by the rendition of a piano selection and was follpwed by the above named numbers. Mrs. Bird is an artist of unusual merit, and the response given her proved the fact. Morgan McKay was given a great ovation and as was requested of him he discussed army life and' -conditions. Mr. McKay belongs to the Aviation ",orps and is naturally" proud of the fact. He. referred to army conditions, emphasizing the, fact that,' it is the duty of everyone to conserve in every way possible. Attention' was called to the fact that many soldiers are not properly clothed because of shortage of wool and lack of. manufacturing facilities. When talked to personally Mr. McKay stated that one of the best responses students, could make to these conditions at present would be to adopt some uniform non-wool costume. . He asserted that the aeroplane is at present the most important means toward winning this war, because before battles can be won the enemy must be located.
