O la la, oui oui. Song, dance and "Cabaret de la Paree." O! boy, eight big acts of fun, bubbling with mirth, and two more nights to go. Make your dates boys, give them the hint girls and under no condition miss the greatest yet. Those who saw the performance last night had the greatest time of their lives. When they entered the hall they were fairly stunned by finding themselves in a large tea garden. Japanese lanterns, myriads of colored lights, mandarins, mannikins, and in the mean time plenty of eats: then, the Vaudeville eight big acts. Dame fashion led her revue across the stage of time all the way from Martha Washington up to the adored Valentino. Bustles, flappers and bustles again. A serving of shredded wheat a la Hula, brought the house down and a general rush was started for the stage when two Hulas appeared among the palms. There was a general tangle in "Tangles" and boistrous was the merriment caused thereby. Ruth did some fancy dancing and Kate Fenton tried to spoil the whole thing, but her actions were uncommonly funny and Junior Prom. April Thirteen Hooray ! everything's in order for the biggest Prom in the City's history. Not even the date, Friday the 13th, could stop the gigantic plans already formed. "Invites" are out by the scads, and the whole City is expected to attend. There are features galore, to attract the merrymakers. The best dance music to be found in the city will be there with bells on. As this is the last Weber-High School Prom, it is expected to make "History" for the old school. It is one of the two or three outstanding events of the season that each student MUST attend, if he or she is a loyal Weberite. The Juniors have provided a way so that everyone may get invitations. If you haven't done so, do so immediately as they are going fast. Not only do the We-berites want invitations, but many outsiders are asking for them. Ogden-High will be there. Ted Woods is going to advertize it up there and distribute "invites" to the Ogdenites. As the Ogden-Highers are not a bit sure of a Prom of their own, this year, it is expected they will turn out en masse to their best friend's Prom rather than be left out altogether. All in all, the Prom is bound to be a success this year. The largest Prom in Weber's history merely made the act more enjoyable.A real "Chinee" act matched the decoration by some singing "coolie" maids on a" "Package of Tea." Our Metropolitan- Prima Donna sang her latest classical hits. A duo of chorus girls and their popular songs set the masculine portion of the house in an uproar and all vowed they would be there tonight and tomorrow night. (Watch out Hula Dancers.) : Our young virtuoso with her majic violin lulled the audience into peaceful reveries, only to be suddenly brought to earth by the next part of the evening's program.An orchestra was present and music was furnished for dancing between acts, and together with the cabaret atmosphere and eats Weber looked as if she had been set down on Fifth Avenue or Paris. There has been nothing like it in the history of Weber before. The vaudeville has already caused quite a stir and bids fair to cause some more, even now all the girls on the street are all dressed up like shredded wheat, since Sadie Bowman did the Hula! TEN REASONS WHY EVERY WEBER STUDENT SHOULD OWN THIS YEAR'S ACORN 1. Because it is the only way to keep your Weber friends always with you. 2.

Are you proud of your trip to Mt. Ogden? Keep the memory bv owning the Acorn. will be tendered the largest graduating class in the the history of the school. To Come To April First On March Thirtieth Another b'ock will be added to the monument for 1923 when the Debating Club of the School with the assistance of the Acorn Staff puts on Weber's first real live April Fool dance. Although it won't be put on with the elaborate decorations that O. H. S. Classicalia flouted, still the club, will not April Fool you by not having any decoration at all. Messrs. Williams and Tanner, the big "Cheeses" of the two organizations in an interview by the reporter state that they will make no definite statements in regards to the affair except to say that there is going to be a dance, and that it is going to be an April Foot dance. "Every thing is to be April Fool even the day for the dance," said Mr. Williams. Mr. Tanner was not so April Foolish and made these Reservations, 1st. There will be a dance, we will not fool the folks by putting on a lecture. 2nd. It will be at the Weber Auditorium and not in the Street. 3rd. You will be robbed of four bits as your enter, no more, no less. "Correct," said Mr. Williams," but we will fool them on the date it is on March 30, instead of April 1st. The dance is strictly invitational,, although you may obtain them at the door (April Fool,) and no one will be admitted unless they (Continued on Page 4) Big Student Body For Weber Next Year With a graduating class aggregating nearly two hundred, most of whom will return to college and a possible forty of fifty graduates from Ogden High School who will come to Weber to take advantage of the courses offered here, together with a number from the Sacred Heart Academy, Davis High and Morgan High, prospects are bright for a large college. With these students and the seventy-five or more who are now registered, that will return, Weber will have around three hundred college students on her campus next year. With many students from whom to draw for the athletics Weber's prospects are exceedingly bright in this line. There will be football, basketball and track teams to carry on the school's traditions. Neither will intellectual contests be omitted. Below is a list of Seniors who have expressed their desire to return to college next year : Lawrence Barrett, William Burton, Afton Brown, Wealtha Bramwell, Dorothy Ballantyne, Mabel Carver, Douglas Ellis, Ella Ferrin, Piatt Fuller, Wallace Greenwell, Hazel Hill, Bernice Harding, Clare Olsen, Marion Pearce, Florence Roberts, Catherine Rishton, John Seaman, Ellen Williams, Dan Shupe, Edna (Continued on Page 4) GET THIS A stands for Acorn The year book of Weber "Chuck" full of fine memories The year that we leave her. c stands for Contest A plan quite unique- To pay all at once Would make us feel weak.

Line up, boys, and others, and help decide this momentous issue. If you don't cast your full allowance of 350 votes in the Acorn Beauty Contest, you are out of order, in the strictest sense of the term, or syllables to that effect. Perhaps, or maybe, you hear at different times of the day a delightsome male voice calling out, "Come on ovah, ladies and gents, only one cent a vote, ten for a dime, only a dollar for a hundred ; they're going fast. Who is she? Put your favorite name on the slip and cast it lightly in the box. Get'em in while they're hot !" If such eloquence does strike your ears, oh please don't mark the voice down for a padded cell, but go cast your vote, (and your money) for your classes's candidate. She'll be sure to win, whichever one she is if you all stand by her-you can stand, just so you don't lean against her. DEVOTIONAL SEATING CHANGED The other day a great commotion was caused in devotional when an unheard of change was instituted. We now see the staunch, sturdy members of masculine sex seated among the gay colors of the "fairer ones," and then remember how one day in the immediate past this extraordinary phenomena came about. One day in devotional President Tracy announced that the different divisions of our student body were to occupy different regions of the assembly hall. The College and seniors the front portion on the west and east sides of the center, respectively, while the Sophomores and Junions occupy the other quarters of the house, the Sophs being behind the College and the Juniors behind the Seniors. This change marks the amalgamation of the two factors of Weber which will henceforth be known as Weber College. Weber's Vaudeville! Triangle Debates Next Friday Next week our negative High School Debators journey to Davis County High to debate that school on the subject, "Resolved That Utah Should Establish a State Constabulary." The same night Coalville high school will debate our Affirmative team at Weber. Myra Wright and Rulon Beus will defend the Negative and Athol Tribe and David Kennedy will uphold the Affirmative. The school winning the triangle will compete in the state finals at Salt Lake City the following week. Neither of the debators, for Weber, has had any experience, and the time for preparation has been decidedly short this year. "Nevertheless," said Coach E. L. Wilkinson, "if they will only work they will give a good debate. Debating requires individual effort of the members and too much coaching often is very harmful. Therefore the members this year have been given practically no coaching. They must rely on their own resources. They will win if they but work hard enough, because they have the ability." During the coming week a practice debate will be held at Weber and at Granite. David Kennedy and Athol Tribe upholding the" affirmative will travel to Granite and Myra Wright and Rulon Beus will uphold the negative of Weber Tuesday, March 27. Friday the Division Triangle will be held. And S. A. R. Contests Are Discontinued It has now been definitely decided that the oratorical contests between the Ogden High School and Weber High School will be discontinued. These contests have caused keen competition and interest in an intellectual line for several years. Therefore the students of Weber no doubt feel deep disappointment in not being able to receive the development and experience such a contest affords. They have surely appreciated the public spirited-ness exhibited by Dr. Rich in celebrating his birthday by giving fifty dollars in prizes to winners of a contest of this type, and wish to express their sincere appreciation. Weber is now passing through a transition period which will change her nature completely. Next year Weber expects to be a full fledged Junior College and hence her High School policy must change. In, order to create, therefore, a better and more friendly feeling between Weber and Ogden High School so that the graduates from the High School may have a frienddly attitude towards Weber College it has been decided to discontinue all contests between the two high schools. VONDA FOR QUEEN. Campaign Now Open For Subscriptions CUTS FOR CLASS PI ALREADY BEI The Acorn Staff this year, is attempting a big task. The members are working to make this year's Acorn a fit chronicle of the best year of Weber's life the best and the best and the last. The last Acorn ! It gives one a queer feeling to think that this year's Acorn is to be the last of the long line that has come before the last Acorn, telling the last year of Weber's famous High School department. And so, in face of the expectations of the Weber student body, the staff has a big task. They are trying to make the Acorn fitly express the school this year, and be the forerunner of the greatest Weber to come. The book this year will have different features, from other Acorn. It will contain the pictures of the school history Weber's different homes, from the Second Ward to our present building. These in themselves are very sacred, because they tell the story of Weber's life and progress. Another feature will be the pictures of the contruction of the gym from the "roof gar Weber Debaters Lose T0B.Y.C. In an unpopular decision, the Weber Negative debating team lost to the Ricks College at Rex-burg Idaho, by a vote of two to one. The subject debated was, Resolved, That for the U. S. the Parliamentary Form of Government is better than the Presidential system. Ricks College upheld the affirmative and Weber College representatives, Edwin Nelson and Raymond Poulter defended the negative. The debate was characterized by a direct clash of issues each team accepting the tests of Government as being, Efficiency, Stability, and Democracy. The Ricks debators showed more adaptability in delivery and form; while the Weber speakers exhibited a more fundamental knowledge of the question. Though not as free in rebuttal, they excelled in substance and material. s The debate was held during the regular assembly of the Ricks College, and was judged by attorneys Geo. Lowe, C. J. Taylor and Geo. Worthen. The Weber debators were the guests of the Ricks College at the school opera, the "Mikado," during the evening. They report that our sister institution received them cordially and made the visit very pleasant. "I am well satisfied with the showing made by our team," said Coach Ernest L. Wilkinson, in making his report.' "There is no offense in losing under the conditions."GET YOUR ACORN TODAY n- GT NOW I CTURES NG MADE FOR BOOK den" to its present stage. After a decade of labor and saving, the gym is at last nearing completion, and this year's Acorn has the opportunity to present the complete pictures of the construction.The College basket ball team, as the first college team, will be accorded a prominent place in the book. The Book has, perhaps, more class pictures than any before. Almost every Senior has his picture there. The book will contain special inserts of the school and Mount Ogden. The Mount Ogden hike will be featured. There will be many clever features, cartoons and snapshots. The literary section will contain the winning composition and poem of the Douglas Literary contest. This is a book the Acorn Staff is aiming to put out. It will be a book to be proud of and to be treasured wdien school days are past. But it is only with the hearty cooperation of the students that this can be accomplished.Weber Loses Debate At Home On Friday, March 16, in the Weber Auditorium, the first debate of the year was held. The Brigham Young College of Logan was the opponent and won, carrying all three votes. The question debated was: "Resolved that for the United States the Cabinet Parliamentary system of government is preferrable to the Presidential." Weber having the affirmative side was represented by Hugh Moyes and Junius Tribe while the negative was represented by Cecil Bott and Vernon Obray. The contructive speeches of the affirmative team were decidedly better than those of the negative but the negative team handled the rebuttal stronger and thereby won the decision of all three judges. However we feel that debating is very worth while and that those representing Weber deserve the commendation and loyal support of all students who uphold the true standards of Weber. Every day in every way the excuses are getting better and better. Take for instance a boy and girl in this school: both make the excuse that they are going to the dentist, at the same time. No names will be mentioned purely for the writer's safeguard, but it might be said that their initials are L. P. and R. J. There seems to be a ratherunder-current of mystery about Ezra Parrv and Thelma Durrant.
