WB1 HMD I F Dedicated to Freedom of Speech and Press BUY IT NOW THAT THRIFT STAMP VOL. Ill WEBER WELCOMES STUDENTS LETTER OF PRES. PETTY Gives Aim of the Coming School Year Opportunities Never Better for Students. BANNER YEAR PROMISED Young Men and Women Must Be Prepared to Meet Conditions After War. Fellow Students, Freshmen, Members of the College: Another year of our lives is before us a year of work, study and play and it promises to be one of the most important periods of our lives, since the need of trained men and women at the present time is greater than ever before, and the question that confronts the student is whether to continue his scholastic training or accept something else. The leaders of this republic and, in fact the world, are trained men and women. To obtain a training we must continue our education, and the belief is well founded that 1918-19 will be a banner year in Weber's history. Most of us are accepting the opportunity of returning to Weber, while many are joining our ranks for the first time. To all I extend a hearty welcome from the student body officers and the Board of Control. May your life at Weber be successful in all that you undertake, and may each and every one of you co-operate in an effort to make this term a complete success in every way. To our president and faculty we extend our greetings and a wish that your activities here may be of the most pleasant nature. Our desire as students is that you will be one of us and with us that a spirit ofco-operation and goodfellowship will prevade among all. Fellow students, we are at a critical stage of our lives because there are many offers and opportunities constantly before us which may lead us into discontinuing school and may re- sult in our losing the chance of reaching the highest point of efficiency. The draft is taking many of the young men, but those who remain in school will be allowed to continue their training in order that the nation will have skilled hands when peace is restored. Everyone admits that after the war the person who possesses an education will have far greater opportunities of becoming successful than h Ay OGDEN, who has not accepted the opportunities of going to school. Students, the point cannot be too strongly emphasized. It is your patriotic duty to continue your education so that after the war this nation will not be crippled for want of competent men and women. Besides, we should consider our own welfare for the future'. The results of a good education when compared to those of a poor one show the value of going to school quite clearly. This year Weber presents to the young man and woman every opportunity for a practical education that can be desired. A competent faculty, a spirited student body with lots of pep and originality, numerous contests and student body activities ' in which any student in good standing may participate, in fact, everything to make this year a memorable one for Weber. Our athletics are well represented, many of our better men of last year being back with us. Most of our de-bators, dramatic "stars" and orators have returned and, fellow Weberites, when you look things over it will make you feel that the jinx has left us. Fellow students and members of the faculty, let "co-operation and fair play" be our watch word this year. May our efforts lie rewarded by the greatest success, a id may we all -strive on to the great goal of perfection. On your marks! Set! Go! May this be the most successful year in Weber's history. Sincerely and faithfully yours, RUSSELL B. PETTY, Pres. Student Body. CUPID WINS OUT Lewellyn Roberts is Hoplelessly Defeated in Match With Wily Archer. Burning his bridges behind him and throwing his good resolutions to the winds, Llewellyn Roberts gave up the hopeless struggle for his freedom, and on the first day of last summer abandoned himself to his fate (said fate being Mamie). This marked the culmination of a romance that held the interest of the student body for one whole year. The principals of the three-reel thriller were Llewellyn Roberts, last year's editor of the Acorn, and Mamie Crit-tendon,. vice president of the Senior class. It also marked the temporary bankruptcy of some of Weber's leading sportsmen, as a lot of money was staked on Lew's chances of escaping the deadly vamping of the female of the species. The sad fate of Roberts should be a warning to the rest of the boys. Fellows, take a little fatherly advice. If some sweet young thing with soulful eyes and a winning way takes you by the hand and attempts to lead you from the straight and narrow path that leads to the study hall, asking you to take her for a stroll in the park or over to Tom's, thrust her from you and flee for your safety. For in these times of hard pickings her intentions arc serious and your only safeguard is flight. Lew failed to recognize this fact, and although his friends broke all the international laws of courtship to save him, he sank deeper into the trap set for him by Mamie. The exact manner of his final surrender is not known, but some say that the moon was responsible, others aver that it was a (Continued on Fnge Four) UTAH, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1918 A WORD FROM PRES. BEAL Head of Weber Normal College Extends Greetings to Student Body. PREMIUM FOR GRADUATES Tells of Campaign to Encourage Men and Women to Make Most of Opportunities. Through the columns of our school paper, the Weber Herald, we are happy to extend greetings to our students now in attendance at the Weber Normal College. We welcome you, and we take this occasion to assure you that the Weber Normal College stands ready to serve you in every way it can. To serve the peopleof this section of the state and all students who may enter the school is the aim of the institution. Our school, like the many other splendid institutions of learning in the state, desires to reflect the ideals and aspirations of the people and to meet their social needs. We feel, too, in these times of war that the gospel of good cheer and earnest and steadfast endeavor need to be taught as never before. We are told that there never was a time when there was such a premium for trained intelligence as there is today. President Wilson recently said: "So long as the war continues there will be constant need of very large numbers of men and women of the highest and most thorough training for war service in many lines. After the war there will be urgent need not only for trained leadership in all lines of industrial, commercial, social and civic life, but for a very high average of intelligence and preparation on the part of all the people." With this advice from our national leader, as well as that from our state officials, educators are everywhere making an educational campaign to encQuragc young men and women to make the most of their opportunities to push on their education. Uncle Sam is sending many men overseas, and our country will continue to do so as long as men are needed at the front. Young men and women, however, not actually needed at the front, should be encouraged to prepare themselves for the obligations which will inevitably be placed upon their shoulders in the near future when we emerge from the dark night of war into the bright day of peace. We know that a most splendid spirit i JtjO ' of patriotism is flowing from all the schools througuhout the country. Every institution of learning desires to do all it can to further the just cause for which our country is fighting by preparing boys and girls for larger service and greater usefulness to their country. To go to school even in this time of intense struggle is therefore important to those who look forward into the future. History and experience seem to combine in declaring that the welfare of the states depend largely on the education of youth. Young Americans must plainly see that their duty is to obey the nation's injunction to go to school until called into active service by the War Department. The watchword of the present is service, and he serves best who makes the most of himself in a way that the making does not detract, but adds to the betterment of others. O. F. BEAL. WEBER'S HONOR ROLL Weber's roll or honor was enlarged this summer by the enlistment of the following former students: Phil Jeppson Infantry. Roy Anderson Infantry. Arthur Linford Signal Corp. Dale Phillips Signal Corp. Glen Hardy Navy. Joe Smith Army. Russell Croft Army. Vernal Anderson Selective Service. Amasa Holmes Selective Service. Wallace Walker Selective Service. JEPP JOINS ARMY Is Now in Service of Uncle Sam and is Stationed at Camp Funston, Kan. Again has Weber been called upon to give up one of her most loyal and popular students. This time it is Phil Jeppson, last year's basketball star and president-elect of the Senior class, who has joined the army as a private in the Twentieth infantry and is now stationed at Camp Funston, Kansas. With the enlistment of Jeppson, Weber loses a man who will be hard to replace, as his participation in student activities marked him as one of the foremost members of the school. His loss will be felt particularly in athletics, as he was one of the best forwards that ever donned the Purple and White. Coming from a family of athletes, he built a name for himself that made him feared by all oppo-(Continued on Tage Four) j .'v"Vr3. fc' !

The appearance of seven new faculty members is one of the features of the opening of the 1918-19 school year in Weber. These instructors have been chosen to succeed those who left at the close of last year. Weber is indeed fortunate in securing their services, as all come to us with big reputations acquired in other institutions. With these additions the school's staff of teachers ranks with the best in the state, as practically all have either an A. B. or an A. M. degree. Edward M. Read, the new head of the English department, needs no introduction to the majority of the students, as his work in the public schools of Ogden has made him known to man3'. He has had many ye-.vs' experience as a teacher, and for the past few years has been principal of the Quincy school. He received his master degree from the U. of U., where he made a most excellent record as a scholar. With five years' experience in a church school in Canada, Vard L. Tanner, A.M., comes to Ogden highly recommended as a teacher and scholar. He will work in the department of mathematics. The third addition to the faculty comes from the ranks of our own alumni. John Q. Blaylock, A. B., is a graduate of Weber and returns to head the foreign language department. Airs. McKey, graduate of the U. of U. and the Bell School of Speech, will fill the vacancy left by T. Earl Pardoe. She has taught in the Branch A. C. and also in Rexburg. She comes to us highly qualified, as she has made several appearances on the stage in New York. Miss Juanita Ricli will labor in the English department. She is a graduate of the A. C. and has done postgraduate work in the University of Southern California. The school is fortunate in securing the services of Miss Mattie Stone as librarian, and Mrs. Kohler as assistant registrar, as both are experienced in the their line of work. WEBER WELL REPRESENTED When Prof. William Z. Terry returned from the Institute which was held at Coalville Friday, Sept. 20, he reported ten out of the thirty-six teachers in the North Summit school district are graduates of Weber.
