Fight The Spring Fever VOL. V Weber Again Successful In Oratorial Contests Delbert Wright Wins First Place ; Silverstein, From O. H. S. Wins Second April 8, 19 21, Weber scored another victory. This time it was not physical but intelectual. Delbert Wright carried away the victor's banners in the Rich Oratorical Contest.Gladys Green and Robert Newman also represent Weber. The winning oration was on ''Disarmament." His style was clear and convincing. His thoughtful, conversational tone and attitude was very splendid. He ttrged a great disarmament in all military activities and the perfecting of those already in use. He said that the people had been kept in ignorance of the affairs in the military world, but as American citizens we demand the right to understand. "Americans tear from your eyes this dark mantle of delusion; shout your desires for substantial protection to the skies, that such schemes may hp rins'rnt'-.'.. vour oister nations have received with acclamations of joy, proposals for gradual international disarmament. They await America's decision. Let them have that decision now from the heart of every true citizen. Let us unite In a mighty effort to provide the safeguard of American integrity." "Shall America Fail in Her Mission to the World?" was the subject of Robert Newman's speech. He declared that the U. S. should build and maintain a very large navy for the protection of the coast and for the assurance of universal peace; that immigration of undesirable aliens should be stopped because such beings will soon become a peril to our nation; that America should not enter the League of Nations because as yet this compact is not perfected and the U. S. and as a champion of democracy, cannot risk her position until i has become a safe and stable document.Gladys Green talked upon "The Making of an American." She appealed for a great national patriotism which would make all men willing to live and die for their country. She declared that the first thing baby eyes should see and remember should be the American flag; the first thin'? the baby lipr should utter should be "America." When American patriotism fails, when the imagination is no longer active, the national glory of any country begins to decay. We, as American citizens, should so perfect ourselves with literature and fine arts that we are able to carry on the burden of controling our great nation. Leland Johnson gave an oration upon "A Limited Navy." He pointed out. that because the U. S. i . spending ro much money under the enlargement of our Navy, England and Japan are viewing us with alarm. America has natural resources enough to keep her indefinitely should she be attacked; therefore, there should be no naval competition between nations because it is. an incentive for war. The money which would otherwise be used for the navy should be used for furthering of education. Junius Tribe spoke upon "Labor Strikes in America." Because of strikes. the laborers, capitalists, and the public suffer. He suggested that a board of arbitration be made whereby strikes may -be arbitrated, and peace in the industrial world should be made compulsory; America's liberty must stand, the U. S. must progress, and this progression can come only through the arbitration and pacification of all strikers. The speeches of the O. H. S. students were also very excellent. fPSFWl HFf AI ID) SONS OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION Oration WTon by Miss Ruth Scowcroft Miss Ruth Scowcroft of the Weber College won a decided victory for first place in the Sons of American Revolution contest. The sub-ect of her oration was, "A Principle of Humanity at Stake," which she presented in a pleasing and efficient manner. This contest has usually oeen won by a boy and Miss Scowcroft is one of the few girls to have received this honor. The medal was presented by Mr. Overfield in true French fashion. The judges lor the contest were Bishop David Smith, S. W. Morrison of the State Legislature, and Mr. David Spencer. Mr. F. A. Boyde acted as chairman. Remarks were made ,by Colonel John Q. Cannon and Mr. Morrison. Musical selections were presented by the Weber College male quartette and Paul Wheeler of Ogden H. S.. save Other speakers to represent Weber in this contest were Mr. Robert Newman, who spoke on "Will America Fail in Her Mission?" and Junius Tribe on the subject, "Our Duty to Mexico." Both were able representatives. Mr. Tribe won second place. The Ogden H. S. speakers were: Carl McGinley on, "The Irish Question," Israel Silberstein on, "The Unknown Dead" and George Allison on, "Marcus Whitman." BLACK AND WHITE DAY Cache Valley and Dairy Congi ress to Be Held at Richmond, April 30 The annual Black and White Day together with the Cache Valley Dairy Congress is to be held at Richmond Saturday, April 3 0. It promises to bring out one of the finest exhibitions of dairy cattle ever shown in the West. The bankers and merchants ot Cache county are assisting in the movement as they have found that the dairy farmers are getting through the present financial difficulties to better advantage than any other class of farmers. Four hundred dollars will be given in cash as prizes on the day of the exhibition. Those in charge of the affair have the promise of 200 head of Dairy cattle which are being nut in first class shape for the show. Cattle are to be on the grounds at 9:30 a. m. The judging will commence at 11 o'clock and the day's entertainment will close with a banquet in the Opera House at night. Cache Valley in northern Utah Is fast becoming famous as a dairy-center. There are at present four large condens.ed milk factories besides several small cheese and butler factories located in the fertile valley. The abundance of alfalfa hay grown, the heavy yields of corn for silage, and these combined with the by-products from the five beet sugar factories makes it possible to produce milk at , a minimum cost. Holstein and Jerseys are the only breeds of dairy cattle that will be represented. Some very fine records have been made by each of the breeds during the past few years. We invite all interested in dairy cattle to oin us and promise them a profitable day as we feel that we have a good object lesson in community effort. J. L. McCARRY, Secretary of Black and White Ass'n. OGDEN, UTAH, FRIDAY.

'21. INTERESTING EVENTS IN DEVOTIONAL Many very interesting numbers have been given in Devotional the last two weeks, including: Solos by Brother Manning, Wallace Budge, Elijah Clawson, Melba Douglas, and Leona Warner; musical selections by the orchestra, the Soft Wind Club, the High School and Alumni Musical Society, and a duet bv Ruth Scowcroft and Frances O'Neill. .ueailings have been given by Irna era in, ihe Heart ol Old Hickory," and "Molly," and Gladys Green read "The School-Master Beaten." On March 31, the boys and girls met in separate Devotionals. Dr. Morrell talked to the boys, lie emphasized the necessity of but -one moral standard. He declared that one could hide a wrong from others but not from one's conscience. Double standards are not typical of true Latter-day Saints, and Mormon boys should realize the necessity of keeping themselves clean morally, and physically. Mrs. Tanner and Miss Noble talked to the girls. Mrs. Tanner asked the girls to be more careful of their appearances at school and at home. A person's character is proclaimed by his appearance. Miss Noble gave four rules, which if lived up to would develop real leaders. They were: First, pray daily; second, do a daily health chore; third, study one-half hour every day on a favorite subject; fourth, do a daily good turn. Both Devotionals were verybeneficial. Junior Prom Success Socially And Financially ACORN FUN DUE ON MAY SIXTH May 6 will go down in the history of our school as an unl'orgetable day. Halls and walls will be gaily decorated. At night the dance hall will be changed to the decoration committee's idea of heaven. Happy couples will be whirling about the room while the inspiring music of Earl Wecker's seven-piece jazz orchestra fills the air. At nine-thirty the May Queen, the most beautiful lady, elected by the crowd, will sit beside her choice of the cleverest boy present, and judge the best waltzers on the floor. This lucky pair will then receive a three-pound box of Slyipe-Williams' Best. At ten o'clock each girl will present her basket filled with enough eats for two. Each lunch will be auctioned off to the highest boy bidder, who will dine with the producer of the basket he buys. While the company is dining Ruth Stevens and Tottie Hat "J '. oru-vu with some dancing, after which ten of the most beautiful girls in the school will give the maypole dance, amidst flashings of colored lights. Booths, beauty parlors, caps, horns and fortune telling will be among the side attractions of the evening. At noon the same day the cry of "Hot Dogs," "Acorn Pies," and "Bars" will penetrate the air, after which, (if the faculty women accept the challenge) an indoor baseball game will be played outside, between the college girls and faculty women. To top off the noon hour. Professor Ricks will shoot Dr. Lind a game of horseshoes in front of the school. HONOR DAY IN DEVOTIONAL APRIL 29 One of the most important events in the school year will be Honor Day. On April 29, in Devotional, the students who have done their part, and helped push Weber to the front will receive their awards. Sixteen sweaters will be awarded to this year's football men and seven sweaters will be given to the basket ball stars, who have certainly done their share in making our school prominent. Claude Lindsay- will be given a gold medal for his four-year service on the team. Every clean sportsman recognizes our "Shanty," and we, the students of 'he school, greatly appreciate his work. For the debators, two first-year pins, one second-year ring, and one third-year fountain pen will be given to those who have made Weber's influence most felt in the intellectual world. The awards for the siudents who participated in the Oratorical contests have not been decided upon. Six pins are to be awarded for first-year service in our annual school play. A small pearl will be inserted in the last year's pins for second year's service in Ihe dramatic line.

The yellmaster and athletic manager will be honored with sweaters this year. The money for these awards will be paid from the Student Body treasury. We are proud of our honor men because they have helped to make Weber's ideals live and we hope that their examples will be followed by other students. NO. H One of the most successful Junior Proms ever staged by Weber students took place April 8, at. the Berthana. From the very beginning until "Home. Sweet Home" was played, everything went off with a smoothness characteristic of Weber activities. One of the main features of the evening was the Grand March, which took place near the end nf the dance. Nearly every one participated in it, making it a brilliant affair. Another feature was Ihe exhibiting cf the pennants on the north wall of the ballroom. The American flag, the Weber pennant: and the Junior Class banner were arranged s.o that they could be very plainly seen. During one of the waltzes, the lights were dimmed, and a bright spotlight was flashed on, presenting, a beautiful contrast with the dark walls. Only one encore to the dance was allowed because the committee desired to carry out the whole evening's entertain'""" ' : ' -- ' ' - Citiied ail too uiiick- ly, and many joy-seekers were cheated out of some of their promised dances. Many comments were made about the programs and the invitations. The programs were unique and showed skillful work in the designing. "22" was, prominent on the booklet, and it has been said that the form used was the most novel ever exhibited in high school. One of the most striking dance hits, "Beautiful Annabel Lee," was sung by Harold Farnoff. This attraction was well planned and was much appreciated. All who went to the Berthana enjoyed a very pleasant evening. This . sentiment was voiced by one of the visitors who said, ',rrhis is certainly the best Prom I have ever attended. Special credit should be given to Leon Bush, Edris Christensen, and other members of the Prom committee, because it was only through '.heir efforts that the Prom was made a success, both socially and financially. DOMESTIC SCIENCE DEPARTMENT ACTIVE Although the school in general is unconscious of the fact, our Domestic Science classes have been wide awake. They form one of the large factors of the school. They understand that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach and as a result they are preparing themselves for their life's missions of getting and keeping a man's love. March 28, 192 1, the cooking classes prepared in a most delicious manner, 1400 individual cakes, which were served by the Ladies' Literary Club at the Tea given for the benefit of the gymnasium The club expressed its appreciation for Ihe contribution made by the college.The Federal Bakery was visited by a number of classes, in order to make notes on the most wholesome way to serve the general public. Very attractive and palatable luncheons were served to the debators and judges when we debated the Ricks Normal College March 18. Several popular clubs have been entertained at luncheon during the year. Thursday, April 7, the Senior Class in Home Construction visited the First National Bank in order to make a careful si tidy of checks, drafts, and the division of finance in the home. Very little has been said about the Domestic Science department, but we greatly appreciate their efforts to advertise their work, and as a natural consequence, to adver tise the whole school.
