It's Coming The College Vol. 8 No. 8. THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1923. FOUR PAGES Help The Team Defeat Box Elder w COLLEGE HOOPSTERS PLAY SNOW NORMAL HERE TONIGHT WEBER DEFEAT TIGERSPLAY BOX ELDER FRIDAY New Church Policy Does Away With High School. Efforts to Be Centered on Junior Colleges STUDENT ASSOCIATION EXPECTS TO FINISH LAST HIGH SCHOOL YEAR WITH BRILLIANT RECORD Friday, January 12th, the Church School Commission, Dr. John A. Widtsoc, Stephen L. Richards and Richard R. Lyman met with the Weber College Board of Trustees and presented the general educational policy of the Church, asking the Weber Board to apply it in Ogden. The policy, as approved by President Grant, is to the effect that the Church has definitely decided to discontinue immediately its activities in the field of secondary education and to devote its energies to the field of junior college education, supplying religious education to high school students by the creation of seminaries adjacent to state high school buildings as far as this is practicable and advisable. After considerable discussion the Weber College Board of Trustees unanimously adopted the policy presented by the Commission, leaving the consideration of its application to be taken up at its next regular board meeting. Therefore, at , its regular session last evening the Board decided on a plan of application. It was decided that rather than have two years of high school work and linger on for two more years without being privileged to admit any more students and with the impossibility of carrying on high school student activities, which are in a measure the life of high school work, the Weber Senior High School will be discontinued next May, and that the Board devote its entire attention to seminary work and to the promotion of an up-to-date junior college. Every effort will be made to make the Weber College the best junior college in the state. The Church has offered to assist very materially and to do everything in its power to give to Ogden and Weber County that which it has long needed various phases of higher education. New equipment, additional library facilities, a high standard of scholastic training, perhaps in the near future a new college building, are to be supplied. However, a part of the present building will suffice for the college for the present.There are now in the college approximately 160 studen t.s. With the large class of seniors being graduated this year and with the apparent loyalty and desire of the community to have a college in Ogden city it is expected that there will be enrolled next year in the college about 300 students. The college will be liberal in its spirit and purposes, being open to all people regardless of religious beliefs. The pur "3 mnk pose of the Church in promoting such a junior college in Ogden is to supply the community with leaders of its various activities and interests. It feels that the college atmosphere is necessary for the upward march of any community. The curriculum of the Weber College will be written up next Thursday, Friday and Saturday and suggestions from business and professional men and others as to what the content of this curriculum should be will be greatly appreciated by the local school officials for they feel that the college should be made to serve the best interests of this community. But regardless of the efforts which the Church shall put forth to establish a prominent college in this city it does not intend to diminish in any way its efforts in the religious education of high school boys and girls. In the place of the present Weber High School work, seminary institutions will begin next September, if not this next semester. During' past years in Weber no more than 500 have been receiving religious education but with the present plan at least 1,000 may next year have the privilege of receiving development along ethical and spiritual lines. For the present the Weber Board of Trustees, in order to offer theological training to the Latter-day Saint choldren who are now in the Ogden City Fligh School, will set apart a number of rooms in its present building for this purpose since the college will occupy only a part of the building at the present time. It is 'thought that during each period through the day a definite number of students could readily go over to the Weber College building for this instruction, since it takes only ten minutes to transfer from the Ogden High to Weber. It is further believed that the Latter-day Saints children of the Central Junior High School may likewise have access to religious education. This plan will no doubt operate until the Ogden City School officials have determined definitely as to where their high school building or buildings will be permanently located at w hich time the Church will erect a seminary or seminaries adjacent to them. As for the religious education of the county students which will be eliminated from the Weber High School, the Church awaits the disposition of the County Board of Education. If the county decides to erect a county high school building the Church (Continued on Page 2) luTTn TI f i t I ; 2BS' ' College Loses To B. Y. C. Team In their first appearance the Weber College Basketball team was defeated by the fast B. Y. C. aggregation. The final score was 38-18. Considering the fact that this is the school's first college basketball team and that practically all of the B. Y. C. men have received state-wide recognition, the showing the Weber men made was excellent. At times Weber showed a flash of speed and outplayed their opponents. The work of Wilkinson showed to advantage. All members of the team played consistent ball and are deserving of praise. It is expected that the Weber team will make a name for itself before the season is over. The lineup and summary is as follows : B. Y. C. G. T. F. P.

COLLEGIATE DEBATES Arrangements Now Complete for Junior College League All Junior College debates will be held March 2, 1923, according to an announcement made today by Ernest L. Wilkinson of our faculty who is Chairman of the Junior College Debating Leagues. On this date Weber will debate Ricks Normal College at Rex-burg and the Brigham Young College at Weber. The subject for debate is resolved: That for the U. S. the Parliamentary form of Government is a better system than the presidential form. "Six Junior colleges are to debate on that date," read the announcement "Dixie Normal of St. George, Snow Normal of Ephraim and the L. D. S. U. of Salt Lake forming a Southern Triangle; while Ricks Normal of Rexburg, Idaho, B. Y. C. of Logan and Weber will constitute a Northern Triangle. "The winners of each triangle will debate each other for the Junior College championship. It is probable that Collegiate scholarship will be offered to the members of the winning teams." The announcement further stated that "no student is eligible (Continued on Page 3) DIS Winter Sports Club Stages Hike To Mount Ogden STUDENT BODF PRESIDENT INJURED "The people of Ogden do not realize the possibilities they have for winter hiking," so said Harvey Taylor, sponsor of the annual winter hike to Mount Ogden. "At their front doors they have some of the best winter recreation grounds in the country, but they do not take advantage of the play-grounds God has been so generous in bestowing." The party of twelve who made the hike to the top of Mount Ogden last Saturday, was, so far as is known, the first to ascend the mountain this year, and will, in all probability, be the last until the spring thaws open the trail thru Malan Basin. The Winter Sports Club, under whose direction the trip was made is delighted with the success of the hike. One accident, it is true, marred the pleasure of the day, for Lawrence Budge was badly bruised and the ligaments in his ankle torn, during his slide down the mountain ; but with Larry recovering, the enthusiasm for the venture has fully returned.The little party met at Weber Saturday morning. They took the street car to the end of the line and walked to the mouth of Taylor canyon, where they encountered the first snow. There was a broken path to Malan's Heights, but from there the trail had to be made. Changing leaders at intervals the party trudged merrily onward, always keeping to the top of the ridge which connects Malan's and Mount Ogden. Here the wind had packed the snow, and in but few places did the hikers sink above their knees. Upon reaching the top of the ridge the party enjoyed a taste of Arctic climate. The prevailing west wind, which always blows with more or less violence there, came roaring past at about thirty-five miles an hour, whipping the loosened snow into the hikers' faces. Banks of clouds whirled by and deposited hoar-frost on the clothing of all. It seemed as tho Old Man Winter was intent on bumping the bottom out of the thermometer ; the mercury hovered around zero and felt as if it were around fifteen or twenty below. At last, with soaked boots and shoes turned to ice and feet in the same condition the top was reached. Here the "Purple and White" was sung, the words almost freezing in everyone's mouth. After snapping a few-pictures the ice-men started the homeward journey. With a fair crust on the snow this journey bid fair to be very enjoyable. Sliding was the order of the day and away the crowd went. Pine trees looked like blotches in the snow and the (Continued on Page 3) CONTIN Ogden High Loses In Last Minute Weber showing spirit galore came through in the last few minutes to gain a sensational victory. The score was 25 to 22. It was one of the most hotly contested games ever played between Weber and Ogden, the climax coming in the last few seconds of play. The five man defense used by the Tigers proved a stumbling block to Weber for two periods. The old saying "Weber comes back in the second half stronger," was carried out, as the men came back determined to win, and fought to the firing of the gun. Both student bodies turned out to the game by the hundreds. The cheering was deafening and the teams could hardly hear the referee's whistle, especially during the last five minutes of play; as the entire Weber student body arose to their feet and cheered helping to put over the victory. The closeness of the game can well be determined by the summary : 1st period, Ogden 4; Weber 4 2nd period, Ogden 10; Weber 7 3rd period, Ogden 16; Weber 15 4th period, Ogden 22; Weber 25 Martin of Ogden and Halliday of Weber were taken from the game in the last period on account of personal fouls. The playing of Budge, Couch and Anderson helped to gain the victory for Weber. Price, Hickman and Halliday also played a good brand of ball. Lyons, Smith, Cox, Martin and Blackham were the bright stars for the Tigers. With Brigham defeating Davis 26 to 25 in the other game of the division, Weber and Box Elder were placed at the top of the league. Bear River was idle the night of the thirteenth.

Prospective Weber debators are becoming more and more interested in this organization. They seem to feel that they are losing valuable information regarding their debating ambitions when they stay away. Weber College Five Out to Defeat Snow in Second League Game; High Men Meet Box Elder Friday COLLEGE MEN IN FOR VICTORY OVER SOUTHERNERS; HIGH SCHOOL BATTLES FOR DIVISION LEAD The leadership of the Ogden Division chase will be determined here Friday night when the Weber cagers tangle with the fast Box Elder line. With these two quints tied for first place the fans are promised one of the fastest and most closely contested battles of the season. With Box Elder defeating Ogden last Friday, and Weber trouncing Bear River the two teams are tied for first. Box Elder has a fast team, winning from Davis by a score of 26 to 25. They also managed to put over a victory last Friday night, winning from the Ogden Tigers, 26 to 24. Eliason and Booth are the artists Box Elder is banking on to gain them victory. Couch, Budge, Halliday, and Anderson are all showing old time form on the Weber five. The game with Box Elder is always one of the best of the season, and a large crowd is expected. Weber will be there en masse. Ogden fans will come out and a large number of Brigham students will accompany their team. Needless to say, Weber's auditorium will be packed. The contest will start at 7 :30 o'clock sharp Friday. The present standing of the Ogden Division is as follows : Weber 2 0 1.000 Box Elder 2 0 1.000 Ogden 0 2 .000 Davis 0 1 .000 Bear River 0 1 .000 Box Elder has a team they claim works like clock-work. Let's stop the clock. It's going to be great boys get your dates now for the College vaudeville. On January eleventh, Pres. Tracy talked to the club on the presentation of a debate. Mr. Wilkinson also gave an interesting talk. He used for his subject "The Importance of the Debate," stating that the college debates on reforms generally precede the reform by at least ten years. On January eighteenth Mrs. Hessler, debating coach of the Ogden high school was present at the meeting, her valuable remarks dealt largely with the task of obtaining material for debate. It is expected that a few im-promtu debates will be held in the club. These promise to be very interesting. As yet, the U. of U. has not prepared a debating subject for the High School Debating League. The Debating Club is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the subject for with it comes their real work. UED Tonight at 7:30 in the Weber auditorium the Weber College team will play the fast Snow College aggregation of Ephraim. The game is expected to be a hotly contested one. Both teams are playing good ball and they will no doubt stage a lively contest.Weber's team in a few brief weeks of practice has advanced with surprising rapidity and is now in good working form. Those who saw the first game with B. Y. C. will remember the excellent floor work of th eWeber team. In the week of hard work since that game their passing has improved considerably and the boys are much surer of the basket. Their improvement was shown by their defeating the high school five in a practice Tuesday night. This fact should in itself prove a drawing card. Wilkinson and Hill will in all probability be pitted in the forward positions. These two men are experienced, having made their letters in high school. The guard positions will be held by Moore and Hickman or Barnett, if Hickman is unable to play. Halverson will hold the pivot position. Although Halverson has not had much experience he has been showing good form and plenty of fight. This game is the second league game for Weber, also the second intercollegiate basketball game to be held in Ogden. In the previous game Weber was defeated by B. Y. C. The game tonight, therefore, will determine Weber's standing in the league. With the support of the students she hopes to be victorious. After the big game tonight the College will entertain in honor of the two teams. The entertainment will be in the form of a dancing party with plenty of eats included. This party will be the most peppy and enjoyable affair that has been given by the College this year so everyone will be assured of a dandy good time. The College intends to prove to the Snow Normal team that we're right there when it comes to showing our guests a good time. PRESIDENT TRACY SPEAKS AT PLEASANT VIEW For the purpose of acquainting the people with the real meaning of the change in Weber's educational policy, President Tracy spoke at Pleasant View last Sunday on the plan of higher education and religious training to be offered at Weber next year. The audience was interested in the plan suggested and seemed quite favorably impressed with it.
