Society Vol. II POSITION AT B.Y.U. WEBER LOSES ONE OF HER BRIGHTEST MEN At the close of this semester Weber is to lose one of her most staunch and loyal workers. The loss comes in the person of Prof. H. A. Dixon, who has accepted a position in the Normal training department of the Brigham Young University. He will assume his duties next fall. Prof. Dixon entered Weber and was a member of the triumvirate of teachers who really put this institution on the school map of the state. When Prof. Jas. L. Barker accepted the principalship in 1914, he brought with him two of the best and most loved instructors who have affiliated them-selves with Weber in the past few years. Profs. Barker, Dixon and D. J. Wilson have so endeared them-f elves and their teachings into the lives of those with whom they came in contact that they will ever stand paramount in their minds as examples worthy of pattern. Prof. Dixon graduated from the B. V U. in 1914, a mission to Germany having interrupted his college life, lie came directly to Weber as in- siructor in German and History. During the vacation of each year he enrolled in the summer school of the University of Chicago, from which institution he succeeded in taking out his Master's degree in school administration last year. His thesis on the 9 soudy of foreign languages in Utah, v. as the first of its kind, and attracted considerable attention at Chicago. Several tests contained therein have since been adopted in Utah ' f.chools. That Prof. Dixon was prominent in educational circles of Utah is attested by the many positions he was offered by various institutions. He re- ceived some splendid offers from the leading schools of the state, hut the lure of his Alma Mater and home town proved too much and he dispatched his acceptance to Pres. Brim-hall.To say that Weber regrets to lose Prof. Dixon is putting the feelings of the students in mild language, j "But you can't keep a good man down" and so he must go the wa( of all such people. Prof. Dixon has also gained a local reputation as both a singer and speaker of note and the -.community will be called upon to help bear Weber's loss. Prof. Dixon's position as head of our college department will probably be filled by Prof. N. H. Savage, who left two weeks ago for Chicago to " complete his studies in education.

GIRLS' ANNUAL FEMALES GET REVENGE Everybody has dates for tomorrow night, I take it? If you haven't there is only one thing left to do and that's to get one. We girls are telling the world that tomorrow night the niftiest dance this year will happen at Weber and that isn't half the girls are giving it. Lillian will be there with her jazz orchestra and if anyone gets overheated or hungry everything in the line of eats can be had. A huge booth will be in the back of the hall, where dainty little Freshmen will serve punch and you may drink to the colors. Red. white and blue will be the color scheme and something original can be expected, for remember the girls are doing this and there will be nothing missing. After the girls have had their "annual" at the Springs in the afternoon, they will be all keyed up for a large time and they will be ready to show you one, too, that you won't be likely to forget. That nifty little stepper you have been wanting to meet all year will be there and she might ask you for a dance, anyway you want to be there 'vhen the band starts playing tomorrow night about half past eight. Now don't he late. R. W. A little Swedish boy went to school and the teacher asked him his name. "Yonny Olsen," he replied. "How old are you?" asked the teacher. "Ay not know how old Ay bane." "Well, when were you born?" continued the teacher. "Ay not born at all; Ay gotstepmother. DEN, UTAH, THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 1918 April 12, begins Big Program in Devotional. Girls' Banquet to Boys in Assembly Hall All Aboard for Utah Hot Springs Leave Hot Springs for Ogden Grand Ball in Weber Gym. Ladies choice for Dances GIRLS MAKE BIG GAIN FOUR PERIODS OVER BOYS At last the girls have a chance to put one over the boys, to show them what they mean by a "real good time." Oh, if girls' day only came once a week rather than once a year, the girls might have a date. At nine o'clock Friday morning every boy must be found in his respective class rooms, where he will miss the refining influence of the feminine sex. But do not lose heart, boys, for at eleven fifteen you will be permitted once more to meet them in the devotional exercises where the following program will be given: Violin duet Beatrice Stevens Prayer Prin. Owen F. Beal Dixie . . . ; Choir Reading Vera Malan Piano trio Jo Volker, Lettie Ririe, Cleone Lindsay One act play A Dream of 1917-1S But wait a minute! Keey your seats please. That isn't all. The eats are yet to come. Knowing that the surest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, the girls are going to furnish you with homemade lunch just like Mother used to make before the days of Hoover's warbread. There will be sandwiches, pickles, pie, candy and peanuts. No, do not worry aljout the money, for it is the girls' treat. Remember, .also, that punch is always served in the foun-ta!nsAs boys are always good natured r.i'ter dinner, we shall leave them to their own interests at one-thirty, while the girls take an afternoon trip to the Hot Springs. Here we again hope to spend a few pleasant hours I boycotting the gentlemen from our ! company. In the meantime the boys (Continued on Page 2, Col. 2) MAKE iris' PROF. KASIUS TO GO TO WASHINGTON TO SERVE UNCLE SAM .IN .THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT Again it becomes the duty to eulogize the passing of another teacher from Weber. This time it is no other than our best friend and comrade as well as instructor. Prof. Peter Kasius. That Prof. Kasius will encounter a more painful parting that his separation from Weber is fully realized and therefor the following words will be as less touching as possible. Prof. Kasius expects to leave for Washington, D. C. at the close of the school year, to take a position in the treasury department of the federal government and there await the development of an opportunity to enter the naval service of Uncle Sam. Prof. Kasius graduated from Weher in 1912. Weber history of the four years of his attendance is replete with many accounts of his good and (?) uccua, Aiuiiui a gaiuie ill ucuatin, eA" tempo, athletics, and all other activi-. ties were showered upon Weber thru his efforts. His record at the University of Utah, where he spent his next four years and from which school he was graduated in June 1917, is almost identical with his previous history. "Pete" (pardon me) Prof. Kasius has in the past year been the students friend. Counsel and advice on student body affairs has been sought and willingly given, and part of the honor for student body progress must go to Prof. Kasius. ' When questioned concerning prospective matrimonial moves before his departure, Prof. Kasius was reluctant to speak but offered the following for publication: "Quote me as having said Prof. Kasius will go to Washington alone." G Day No. 14 RETREAT LEISHMAN SECOND IN RICH CONTEST CAROL SANDSTROM WINS FIRST PLACE FOR "HI" Douglas Leishman won second place in the fifth Dr. Edward I. Rich Oratorical contest held in the Ogden tabernacle Tuesday, April 8. Leishman's subject was "America and War." Carol Sandstrom from the Ogden High School, speaking on "Liberty and the American People" took first place. The prizes were $35 and $15 respectively. Karl Storey, who took third place and Russell Petty were the other representatives from Weber. Hatti-bel and Laurene Shields, twin sisters, were the other contestants from high school. John Culley acted as chairman and Attorneys G. M. Sullivan, D. L. Stine and Prof. Quivey adjudicated the contest. ORGANIZATION OF jlRLS' DAY PROGRESS SHOWN IN PAST YEAR April 13, 1917, witnessed the first Girls' day at Weber. It was a wonderful success, the girls decided to establish a permanent organization and have an annual Girls' Day on the date mentioned. At an early date this school year, a successful meeting was held which Kai attended by all the girls. Our popular vice president, Mary Woolley, was unanimously elected president of the Girls' association. The other officers being Josephine Volker, vice president; Cleone Lindsay, secretary and treasurer, and Luella Nicholas, yell master. Several parties and entertainments have been given this year, at which many have participated. These entertainments were given not only for amusement, but for the purpose of raising money. This was accomplished, but our enormous sums will rapidly disappear, when we treat the boys next Friday. Many boys enjoyed having their faces "dolled" up at the Girls' Carnival, which, sad to tell, is common to many of our girls. Boys, the girls have shown you many good times this year and they mean to do it on Friday. Give your girl a little encouragement when she is trying to work up the courage to ask you for a date, and be game enough to go with the one you are paired off with. Fellow students, let's make this the greatest day of the year! Now girls don't rush to Kate with expressions of sympathy. It may be that she will follow as soon as the apartment is made ready.
