FRIDAY, APRIL 25, 1919. v Girls flie church authorities have finally recognized our need and at a recent meeting announced a plan of raiding funds for its erection. Under this plan the church will give a dollar for every dollar raised up to $75,000 or $100,000. This means that a fully equipped gym, valued at approximately $200,000, will be built here. The suggestion as outlined by the church was unanimously adopted at a meeting of the" officers of the three stakes Weber, Ogden and North Weber an effective campaign to raise the necessary funds will soon be under way. It is planned to rush this campaign in order that the gym may be ready by next fall if possible. A new era nf ":r: ri:y aac1. process 'lies bctore Weber and with a suitable gymnasium we look for big things in the future. e for a Event Opens With Rush Program 12:00 Midnight Girls' Day Began 9:00 Regular Class Work 12:00 Big Program In Devotional 12:45 Girls Serve Luncheon 2:00 All Aboard for "San" 8:30 Grand Ball at Weber Lillian Thatcher's Orchestra (Girls Association Editor, Ruth Evans) Dav OGDEN WINS RICH CONTEST Beware! At 12 o'clock last night the Annual Girls' Day began and it ' will last until 12 tonight. Everything will be arranged and managed by the girls, so please remember, boys, and hold your places. You will go to your regular classej at 8:50, with the exception of theology, which will be abandoned for one day. Each period will be cut .l.tL-ei. minutes nun by I- noon you will be ready to hear from the girls. The initial joy-maker is a big program in devotional in which the talented members of the school may give vent to their feelings. It is as follows: FAMOUS ANGELICA SINGERS Lottie Hammer, Luella Nicholas, Cora Mortensen GYM AT LAST A CERTAINTY Urgent Need for a Gymnasium Is Finally Recognized by Authorities. WILL COST ABOUT $200,000 Work Will Be Rushed and Completion of Building Expected by Fall. After numerous disappointments, Weber's dream of a gymnasium is about to be realized. Van Dyke Takes Second; Kasius and Storey Tie for Third. The outcome of the Rich oratorical contest this year was practically a repetition of last year, Ogden High receiving first honors and Weber being awarded second and third places. Miss Catherine Becker of Ogden spoke on "The League of Nations." for which she was awarded first place. Derrah Van Dyke treated the subject, "American Ideals," in a very commendable manner and was given second place. Karl Storey and William Kasius tied for third with "Americanism" and "The New Education" as their respective subjects. Mr. Storey's delivery was excellent, as was also his subject, and in the opinion of many he should have been awarded first place. William Kasius' oration was very, unique, as the title suggests. The'' contest was extremely close and it was very difficult for the audience to decide just who had won. The deeision. though not relished by many Weber students, seemed to meet the approval of the majority. However. Ogdcn's representative received fou: points; Van Dyke, eight, and Kasiu-and Storey ten. Dr. Edward I. Rich has proved himself a friend of the students and one of Ogdcn's progressive citizens in making these contests possible. They are of great benefit to those taking part and tend to keep alive inter-school activities. Let us hope that next year we will be able to reverse the decision of the judges and bring the honors to Weber. READING By Miss Marsh GIRLS' ASS'N A BIG SUCCESS April 13, 1917, witnessed the first Girls' Day at Weber, and as it was a wonderful success it was decided to establish a permanent organization and have an annual day for the girls. At an early date this school year, a meeting was held which was attended by all the fair sex. Our popular vice president of last year, Lettie Ririe, was unanimously elected president of the association, with Oa Jacobs, vice president; Bernice Randall, secretary and treasurer; Ruth Evans as Herald reporter; Effic Kasius, athletic manager, and Luella Nicholas as ycllmaster. Several parties and entertainments have been given, at which many have participated. These entertainments were staged not only for amusements, but for the purpose of raising money. This was accomplished, but our enormous sums will rapidly disappear when we treat the boys today. Boys, the girls have shown you many good times this year and they mean to do it today. The least you can do is to be good sports and help make it a big success. The girls will ask for the dates and they would lik a little encouragement when they are working up nerve enough to ask you for your company. Be game enough to go with the one that you are paired off with. Of course, we realize there are not enough Yenuses to go around, but then you are not all Doug Fairbanks: so make it a fifty-fifty proposition and meet them half way. SOLO By Mary Woolley CONCERT By Ukalele Club ONE-ACT FARCE Mysterious Fudge Party The great, thrilling, epoch-making event of the morning will be the presentation of ""ri - Mysterious Finite 1'arty." the set j.ig of which will be laid in the kitch.n of the Weber Normal College. But wait a minute! Keep your hair on! That isn't all! The eats are yet to come. KnO'ving that the surest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, the girls are going to furnish you with home- rade lunch, just like mother used to make. There will be sandwiches, pickl' S, pie, candy and peanuts. No. don't worry about the money for it is the girls' treat. O DANCE TO BE BEST OF YEAR Everybody has dates for tonight, we hope. If you haven't there is only one thing left to do that's to get one. We girls are tclbng the world that tonight the niftiest dance of the year will happen at Weber and that isn't half the girls are giving it. Lillian will be there with her jazz orchestra and wil! pound out everything from the Hula to the latest hit. "Mickey." If anyone gets heated or hungry, everything in the tine of eats and "drinks" that is vilhin the law can be had. The hall will lie decorated with spring flowers not wall flowers, we hope and the school colors, purple and white. There will also be a huge booth in which the dainty little freshmen will dish out punch and make eyes at the mighty Seniors. After you have your "annual" a! the sanitarium in the afternoon, you will all be keyed up for a large time and we will be ready to show you one. too. that you won't be likely to forget in a day. That nifty little stepper that you have been wanting to meet all year will be there and she "might" ask you for a dance. Oh, yes, boys, don't forget that the girls have the pick of the dances and we will see how you like to be worrying whether you will be the belle or the century plant. Anyway, you want to be there when the orchestra starts playing tonight about half past eight. Now don't be late. boy! Remember also that the punch is always served in the fountains. The girls will then pack their grips and will invite the boys to join them in a journey to the "San." Here's that opportunity you've been looking for the chance to teach her to swim. Just one little plea, boys. When you see the girls coming toward you wit': Hujhed checks d,iu shaky kntc don't turn and head for spots unknown, but make it as easy as possible for them to ask you to escort them to the dance. Just remember that it is all in the game and just for a little fun. You had better treat them cordially for they have the choice of partners at the dance, and even though you may be an Apollo, you may find yourself decorating the walls in an attractive, but lonesome manner. Treat 'em nice, boys. They are wearing the trousers for once. ANNUAL WASH TO BE AT "SAN Directly after lunch the student body and faculty of Weber will leave for the "San" on the two o'clock car. This is to be one of the big events of the day and it is unnecessary to say that everyone will be there. The Sanitarium is an ideal place to spend the afternoon of the annual girls' day, for not only will many have the privilege of taking their yearly bath, but will have the pleasure of hiking up the mountains and engaging in various contests. Perhaps the first thing on the program will be the swim. The outside pool will be opened for this occasion and with the two inside pools there will be plenty of room for all. Swimming and diving contests will be the main attractions. However, the boys will provide their own amusement in maltreating the helpless damsels and in feasting their eyes upon the many rainbow-colored suits worn by the fair sex. It is evident that one of the laws of health that of bathing from twenty to thirty minutes will be broken today and a large proportion of the afternoon will be spent in the water Later games and athletic contests will be indulged in. Childhood games, such as "run sheep, run," "kick the can." "hide and seek," could be played with great success in the mountains if it were not for the fact that the nooks and crannies would prove too great an attraction for many couples. A few races and athletic contests will i VALEDICTORIAN ! IS CHOSEN Derrah Van Dyke Is Selected by Graduation Committee for the Position. HONOR MEN ALSO CHOSEN Karl Storey, David McKay and Lettie Ririe Are Named On Honor Roll. Derrah Van Dyke has been chosen by the graduation committee to deliver the valedictory address at the commencement exercises of the Senior class. The committee also announces the selection of Karl Storey. David McKay and Lettie Ririe as honor students. The basis upon which the selections were made was character, scholarship and participation in student activities, and as each of the students named have the necessary qualifications, the selections made by the judges will no doubt meet with the approval of all. Van Dyke is another proof of that saying, "Good things come in small packages." , His participation in school and class activities and his record as a scholar, together with his sterling character, entitle bii, i-G ilm. coveted position. Derrah was the winner of the extemporaneous speaking contest medal last year and recently represented the school in oratory.Karl Storey has been one of the big men of Weber and has made a name for himself by his energetic work. Quiet and unassuming, he has nevertheless been active in school affairs as is attested by his record orator, public speaking, class and student body secretary and treasurer and debator. David McKay is the editor of the Acorn and has also been prominent as a worker, being connected with the orchestra for a number of years and also representing the class in debating and oratory. Few girls have enjoyed the popularity that has been accorded Lettie Ririe. Her ability as a leader has been proven by her efficient handling of the different offices in which she has been placed. Besides her class work, she has been exchange editor of the Herald and is now president of the Girls' Association and vice president of the student body. Work has begun on the arrangement of the commencement exercises and wil! no doubt be ready for announcement in a short time. HELP WANTED! The attitude taken by the Weber student body reminds one of an 1. W. W. principle a whole lot for nothing.Response to the Herald's call fur stories and snapshots has been very poor and if not more interest is shown, the plan of issuing a h.rgr edition will be abandoned. If you want a good paper to complete your files, with a summary of all school and class events and lilb'd with plenty of cuts, show some life. It's up to you. be "pulled off" among the various classes, however. This promises to be a very successful afternoon, so everyone be ready to embark for the "San" today at two o'clock.
