There is no getting around that. The score of 33 to 0 proved it. We cannot feel humiliated, however, for our team played the game in a clean, sportsmanlike manner and that counts most. The big game was played before a crowd estimated at 3500 and although the field was rather wet the playing conditions were on the whole quite satisfactory. The first two periods of play favored neither team, the Weber eleven performing in brilliant style, while the Tigers were forced to take the defensive. The Purple and White aggregation "piled up" a much greater yardage than the Ogden high team and at one time were only twenty yards from their opponents' goal. At the end of the half Weber's hopes were high but, alack, we were doomed to disappointment for the third period had hardly begun before Ogden high "went over" for a touchdown. Through tricky playing the high school team again scored a touchdown and this apparently so disheartened our team that they gave up all hope of winning. At any rate, in spite of our yelling, the team seemed to simply "go to pieces," to such an extent that the Orange and Black literally walked away with the victory. Features of the last two periods of play were the forward passing of both teams and the trick plays of O. H. S. The latter team was more successful than Weber in the number of forward passes completed, and it was largely due to this that Ogden was enabled to make a better showing in the way of touchdowns.INTER-CLASS BASKET BALL SERIES During the latter part of last week and the first part of the present week the class series in basket ball lias been held. There has been much competition this year, each class having placed two strong teams in the field. The surprise of the whole affair was that the college had two full teams and won one game. Other years the college haven't had enough men to make one team but this year they have given the high school classes some keen competition. With good coaching the college ought to have a first class team. The coaches have some first class high school players on hand from which the high school teams will be chosen. As the class percentages now stand the seniors and sophomores are tied for first place, this tie will be played off during the next week. The standing of the are : classes W Sophs 4 Seniors 4 Juniors 3 College 1 L 2 2 3 5 Pet. .667 .667 .500 .167 First The individual playing of Couch, fullback for Weber, was the most noteworthy feature of the whole game, from Weber's standpoint. Anderson and Hal-liday played a fine game during the first periods but like the rest of the team weakened in the fourth period. Budge was unable to remain on the backfield during the entire game and this was a great handicap to the team. For the Ogdenites Sullivan, Smith and Clark were the twinklers. Ogden high was penalized a total of eighty yards during the game while Weber was only once penalized and that for only five yards. The game ended with Ogden High School on Weber's Ten-yard line. Though our team was out played and out-generaled in the last half we could not but feel that this was entirely the fault of the fellows and not to the coaching, or lack of it, they had received. Weber has in Coach Stevenson an excellent coach and we certainly appreciate his work. The line-up was as follows : Hickman le Norton Parry It B. Smith Poulsen lg Whittier Hales c Lyons Price rg Kirkland Passey rt Cox Vest re Zinn Halliday qb Sullivan Anderson lh Clark Budge rh E. Smith Couch fb Chez Substitutes: (Ogden High) Corry for Chez ; Conroy for Zinn. Substitutes: (Weber High) Bramwell for Budge; Clark for Vest; Vest for Bramwell. BRIGHAM DECLARED DIVISION CHAMPS Ruling of Committee Makes Ogden High Ineligible By the recent ruling of the Executive committee of the Utah State Athletic Association concerning the eligibility of Daryal Clark of the Ogden high school, Ogden forfeits all league games in which Clark participated. Until this ruling was made Ogden high school held pennant honors in the Ogden division, not having lost a game. The decision makes the Brigham team division champions. Weber stands second ; Ogden and Davis tie for third; and Bear River comes fourth. Considerable dissatisfaction with the ruling has been expressed among Ogden fans. A number of the Ogden clubs have entered a protest and are sending a committee to meet the representatives of the Utah Athletic Association. We make the suggestion that someone donate a good rope and a couple of horse shoes to construct Irma some really scrvic-able, and at the same time notice able, earrings. SENIORS STILL LEAD, JUNIORS GET A FIRST IN BARKER CONTESTS Interest in the Barker contests grows keener as the series approach the finals. As yet the seniors are leading, but the juniors and sophs are formidable opponents. No, the seniors have no walkaway, sophs come up with a snap unsuspected from such serenity. The juniors too, heretofore ignominiously defeated and left with second or third place , come suddenly to the front and capture first. Ruth Folkman is now the idol of the class. Junior hopes have risen with the conquest and junior would-be orators may be heard "orating" most any time of the day or night. Seniors, on the other hand, abashed at their un-lookedfor defeat have hardly recovered from the shock. However, rumors are already abroad that several earnest seniors have determined such a thing shall not occur again. STANDING OF BARKER CONTESTS Compiled by Judges Score.

We feel that a word of ap preciation is due Mr. Christensen for the excellent service he has rendered our school. Last year under his supervision our news sheet and our magazine numbers attained a standard of excellence unsurpassed by any college paper in the state. Dignified in tone, literary in quality, they were publications of which Weber had reason to be proud. Probably no work is so thank less, so absolutely unappreciated as that done by the editor of a school paper. Students ever ready to criticise, never willing to contribute, note only the defects and forget the many fine things about a paper. "No jokes, no snap are the usual off-hand comments. Yet scarcely one of those who voice such opinions has ever been guilty of handing in the joke he has heard in the classroom or around the halls. Another phase of the work seldom appreciated is the great responsibility and the enormous amount of labor required of an editor. M Claude Helm, put it aptly when he said, "This is a job for wages rather than a pin." Not even the office of student body president entails so much work or demands so much talent and reliability as that of the editor of the school paper. Leslie with his keen intellect, his ability for accomplishing an infinite amount of work and his high sense of honor and loyalty met the responsibility as few students do. He was one of the most loyal students Weber has ever known and with his going our school loses not only the best editor she had but one of her finest sons. Monday evening, November 20, Francis Cragun and Theo. Carver entertained about thirty guests in honor of Wallace Budge, who leaves December 5, for England to fulfill a mission for the L. D. S. church. Sophomores Contest First, Sylvan Warner 2 Second, Marjorie Allen 3 Third, John Cragun 1 Fourth, Anna Marie Hoist 2 Fifth, Rulon Doxey 2 Sixth, Sterling Wheelwright.... 1 Seventh, Themra Scoville 3 Total Score 14 Class with lowest score wins. "MERELY MARY ANN" CAST ALMOST COMPLETE With the exception of two characters the cast of the school play "Merely Mary Ann" is complete. A great deal of time and care have been given to the selecting of students for the different roles, but Mrs. McKey now feels that the best possible cast has been chosen. She selected a second cast, and in case a student who won in the tryout fails in his duty or histronic ability that character will be sub stituted irom the second cast l his will obviate any waste of time. "Merely Mary Ann" was written by Israel Zangwill as a star ring vehicle for Miss Eleanor Robson, who appeared in it for a number of seasons with marked success. In book form the play has just been published. Merely Mary Ann' will be presented at the Orpheum Feb 13th and 14th. XT- -1,, ino pains win De spared in attempting to make it the best student-play in Weber history The "Mary Ann" director and cast heartily thank Miss Noble: Miss Parry, Mrs. Hamer and Miss Osmond for their efficient help during the tryouts. The cast is as follows : Lancelot Olin Ririe Peter. Herr Brahmson .- Bert Opheikins Rev. Samuel Smedge O'Garman Rigby Jacobs Jim Blades Reed Helm Lord Valentine Heber Jacobs Mrs. Leadbatter May Pickett Rosie Florence Wright The Trippet Sisters ..Irna Cram, Glorus Mortensen Lady Chalmer Francis Cragun Countess of Foxwell Irma Stevens....

A SOLDIER TRUE Dedicated to a certain representative of the American Legion.There was a little fellow Of 'Merican Legion fame, Came up to dear old Weber To plead about the game. Oh, please do play Armistice; 'Tis the day of days the best ; We'll take a third the money And you may have the rest. The whole great Legion will come out To swell your rooters' din For Weber's dear to all our hearts We want to see you win. The game was played Armistice. He strutted round quite big; And when the Ogden players won He danced a little jig. PRESENTATION DAY BATTLE School Opera To Be Excellent Production At Orphum Tuesday Musical Treat to Add Much to Proud History of Weber College; Promising Troupe of Singers to Appear 'THE BOHEMIAN GIRL" A THING OF BEAUTY "A thing of beauty is a joy forever," so said some great man Music is a thing of beauty and it gives a joy more transcendent than any other human expression. It is so elusive, so fleeting and 11. .1 r j. uniiKe otner torms ot art as painting and sculpturing, it is be fore us only for the moment but leaves us higher, whiter, sweeter, and kinder.' "The Bohemian Girl," an opera by Balfe, is not a masterpiece of music according to the critics, but with the public who is stirred and warmed by music with a human appeal, it has remained a favorite for more than eighty years. Nowhere will one find sweeter songs than "The Heart Bowed Down," "Then You'll Remember Me," and "I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls." The choruses are dignified, lifting, stirring, gay. The cast is well chosen and well trained for young students of voice. They have been trained to sing and they will do just that thing next Tuesday night. JUNIORS WILL FULFILL ANCIENT PROPHESY THURSDAY NIGHT "And there shall be seven women to every man!" Thursday night is the night of all nights. The junior class is turning out one hundred per cent strong for the evening show party. inasmuch as there are twice as many girls as boys in the class, the boys have pledged themselves to take to the party, not more than six girls or not ess than two. This pledge is to hold good (and it's up to the boys to make it hold good) so seniors and sophomores and college prepare to hear of an exciting time. Miss Noble, Miss Maughn and Mr. Wilkinson will chaperone the crowd. And just think! Mr. Wilkinson has pledged himself to take to the party all girls without a date. (All girls without dates please see Mr. Wilkinson Thursday after school.) The "Cowboy and the Lady" is the ripping comedy the juniors are going to see. Great show ! Great time! Great juniors who are going! COLLEGE DEVOTIONALS Wednesday, Nov. 8 A musical trio, consisting of Dorothy Nichols, Frances O'Neill and Dorothy Proudfit, rendered two selections.

HELEN WILSON AND JOSEPHINE RHEES JOURNAL EDITORS Helen Wilson, high school, and Josephine Rhees, college, have been chosen editors of the Weber Literary Journal.

The more contributors, the more representative the periodical and the more successful it will be. The material for the first issue is ready and the Journal is expected to make its first appear-ence of the season after the Thanksgiving recess. At least a dozen students are already listed with the contribution. MADE INTERESTING Wednesday, Nov. 15 A vocal solo by Mrs. Miller, a reading by Mrs. Cory and a talk by Supt. Hopkins of the Ogden City schools, were the interesting features.Friday, Nov. 17 A vocal solo by Carma Douglas, readings by Bert Opheikins and Ruth Wright, followed by impromtu speeches on the general subject, "I'd rather be right than president" made up a rather unusual program.
