IV Apostle Richards Speaks to Students Gives Interesting Talk On the Home Students Enjoy It Immensely The students of Weber were fortunate in having the privilege of hearing Apostle Richards speak. Monday, Dec. 13. On account of another engagement of Brother Richards .at eleven o'clock, devotional was held at nine-thirty, after which we went to the second period class. In introducing Apostle Richards, President Ricks said that he knew of no other man in the church that, is so solid in his belief in the church, and that he is the same1 man in politics and business as he is in any other mode of life. In short, he is a thorough man. Brother Richards' talk "was very interesting, and held the students throughout. In his introduction he stated that he hardly knew what to speak upon to this kind of an audi ence. but he certainly hit the nail on the head when he spoke about the most needed subject today, "the home." The greatest need today, according to the Apostle, is the home. He said that a good man always rnnies from a good home. That the home is greater than the church, state or the nation, because if a boy does not have a good home, his country will suffer in the en. lTo also reminded us that we do not have to sow wild oats when we are young, as some men have said. Bad deeds may be repented ior but. it 1 like driving a nail in a board, the nail may .be extracted, but the hole still remains. In closing, Brother Richards again reminded us to he dutiable to our home and parents, and we would be thankful of it In after life. Apostle Richards' speech was enjoyed immensely by the students. We appreciate talks like this., and especially when they come from a man like him. We extend our sincere thanks and wish that he will visit us again whenever possible. SALVATION ARMY IS VERY ACTIVE Christmas Cheer Will Be Dispensed While doing your Christmas shopping have you noticed the brave Salvation Army lassie who waits for your contribution? No, you are too busv buying gifts for those who already have more than their share. There is no time to stop and care for those in need. A marvelous work was accomplished by the Salvation Army during the world war. But poverty still exists and many of the poor in Ogden will be benefited by the work of this great organization. The Weber students are not knockers, they are boosters for any good cause, especially a cause of charity. For, "Even though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and hath not charity, I am as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal." 0f $ OGDEN, t- rr ' T1 o Vr TT T71 "0 HIV jl 3 E :1 1 C li . ;t i IJ FACULTY EXTENDS GREETINGS Students of Weber: You have nobly followed the teaching;;; of Our Saviour by the splendid ''id services you have rendered.

Old Custom Revived Christmas Caroling To be Heard in Ogden Hinchcliff to Direct Choruses Is there any boy or girl in the world who has never heard the word "Christmas?" Probably not, tint if you will ask them what Christmas is, they will reply thai it. is a day when people give you presents. Nineteen hundred and twenty years ago the greatest event in the history of the world happened. In other words the Christ Child was born. Before that time, thetwenty-fifth day of December " probably passed the same as the twenty-fourth does now, but, to celebrate His birthday, Christmas was originated. Not as we have it now, a cold process of giving presents, but a day of rejoicing that the Christ and Saviour of the world had come to redeem mankind. To rejoice on this day the people wrote songs to their saviour and sang them in their churches. Then they began to gather in bodies on ihe streets and sing these carols. Every Christmas since then, this custom has been adopted and in the old country every Christmas eve carollers walk about the streets singing beautiful songs. It is this Christmas spirit that we are now trying to revive in America. Christmas in America today, is getting to be more and more a formal process of giving and getting presents. Children as well as their parents do not think of what Christmas is really for and it is with this object in view that people in every city in the U. S. is forming choruses to promenade the streets singing Christmas songs, to fill the people with a true Christmas spirit. Ogden is not behind in this movement. Bands of carolers are Continued on 1'aga 2 UTAH, WKDNESDAY DECEMBER 22. Weber Wins from L.D.S. in The First Game of Season Fast Game Ends With Score of 23 to 21 Outlook Bright for Basketball The Weber Normal hoopsters defeated the L. D. S. five in a fast game at the Deseret Gym last Friday. Because of the fact that the L. D. S. crew managed to carry away the bacon when they played Ogden High School, we consider it a good indication that we will again defeat oui friends up the street as usual. Friday afternoon the team left Weber with about a dozen rooters, to mix with the L. D. S. in a practice game. However the game proved to be as fast and interesting as a league game. The first half was close and ex- t citing. Many times during thel half -the teMns were tied, keeping! the fans "u edge all 'he time. When j iin- ino. 7 IllOU, liuwevri. n ffn-i lead by six points. The score was 11 to 15. 111.- second half was a fight to the finish, both teams straining to the utmost to get a lead of a few points and when the end came the L. D. S. hcopsters, decided they had met. a better team, the score ending 2 3-21 in favor of Weber. Every man on our team played a wonderful game. Claude played his usual miraculous game of guarding. Hickman also surprised the fans with his work. Parry and Hill played an exceptional floor game and" Budge shot the baskets. We will hear more of Budge before the vear goes. The lineup is as follows: Weber L. D. S. V. Hill c Margetts Budge If Irvine Parrv rf Cowley Hickman Ig Barnes Lindsay rg Evans Substitutions: L. D. S. Flow for Irvine. College to Present 'The Amazons" Mary Ensign to Play Lead College ingenuity and talent is again coming to tne lore. may have chosen their play for the year. "The Amazons" is well adapted to the various "stars" in the class. It is a three-act farce and will provide excellent, entertainment. Marion Bodie, the class dramatic manager, and Mrs Brennan have been working hard on the cast, and last. Tuesday the tryouts were held in the College library. On Wednesday the cast was announced. You will hear much more about the plav. If the talk around the halls is to be believed it will be the best ever.

Robins Christmas (Sutton 1 1920 Vass STAFF GREETS STUDENTS Now is the time of cheer and good will toward everyone. It is the time when we are rushed buying and making presents for our friends. "Shop early" never seems to alleviate the rush spirit. But we enjoy the crowds, the snow, the smiles and kindness which always manifest themselves at the yuletide season.We are like some of the young folks, we've been counting the days since the Fourth of July and were not glad to have it go. Everyone has read the wishes and greetings, couched in flowery words, which have been queen since the beginning of time. We will not need to repeat them. The Herald staff hopes that this Christmas issue will extend to you all, students of Weber, the heartiest wishes for a happy Christmas. Shoppers Throng Business District Many Novel Christmas Ideas Are Displayed Windows Beautifully Decorated Did we hear someone say that it doesn't seem like Christmas? Well, he sure is a pessimist of the twenty-third degree and deserves a life sentence in the growlers' hospital.The spirit, of Christmas and of giving is paramount in the minds of the citizens of Ogden this year. Never before have the stores been so completely rushed to death at the present season. The depressed spirit and condition brought about by the war, seems to be lifted from the shoulders of the people, and Christmas shopping is again being enjoyed by the people. The business district of Ogden is a surging mass of people pushing in and out of the stores, happy in the thought of how pleased t hen-friends will be with their gift. Beautiful decorations have been put up in many of the stores, and many novel ideas have been originated. One electric light house has placed a Christmas tree, lighted up, out of the second story window and it makes a very pretty appearance. Windows of toys are displayed everywhere, and from the line of little tots that surround them, they may well be termed, the children heaven. Even father is going into the much detested "dry goods stores," to try to find mother a present while mother is scratching her head in a men's furnishings shop to decide what color of socks to buy father. It is good Christmas comes once a year, to make us forget our selfish selves in the act of trying to please others, but remember this, do not forget the poor clerks, and, "shop early." NO 6 -"j"8?--. sai Christmas Vacation Commences Students Jubilant Parties Being1 Planned for the Holidavs "It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this," said the students, when Prof. Ricks announced our Christinas vacation in devotional. On Wednesday, December 22, we will be free until the Monday after New Year's day. ThI long awaited freedom has come at last, and we hope that the instructors will enjoy it as much as the students. The holiday s.pirit has already pervaded our midst,; in fact, it is so great that we have been tempted to show our festive spirit by sluffing classes. However, we have tried to inhibit such wild desires and have remained dignified. There is something about the vule tide spirit that makes us forget our troubles: it is an indefinable something that leads us away frem our lessons... Anything tha' could accomplish this is tobScom--plimented. In fact, Christmas conies but once a year, and it is our duty to make it as successful as possible. There is always the hustle and bustle; the hurried preparation that makes it really interesting. We decorate Christmas trees, fill our little brother's stocking and throw the yule-log onto the fire. And then comes the climax, when mother brings such untold goodies out of the kitchen, and there is r. gasp of delight from us, for we are over-worked (?) students. All thoughts of school are forgotten and a serene peace comes over "c Christmas vacation is always filled with interesting things to do, but ours is so brief that we will have to crowd appointment upon appointment. We note that other school? have two weeks holiday, and for some unknown reason we have been cheated. Possibly such brilliant, intellects should not pause too lone and they have given us a short vacation. When Christmas vacation berrin'-the old school halls will be empty and forlorn for a short time. But on our return in 1921. the boys will start a display on Christmas tie0, which will be very interesting and brilliant. The students and teachers will have made new year reso-the new year right, lutions and all in all, we will start GOOD FELLOWS TO MAKE XMAS CHEER It is not for us to become so selfishly engrossed in our school, that we do not notice the spirit in our community. It is a spirit of brotherly love and true kindliness that is being manifested by our fellow citizens. There has been a call sent out by the "Good Fellows" organization for help in taking good cheer to the poor. We do not have to search for those in need, as these good Samaritans have brought them to our attention. Our part is to give. In previous years the "Good Fellows" have conducted successful work in Ogden. They have taken food and clothing to fatherless children; and .have entered the widow's humble cottage to bring relief. And Jesus said, -'Even so. if ye do it unto one o. these, y also do it unto me."
