.IllPtil HIED H VOL. III. OGDEN, UTAH, TUESDAY, MAY 20, 1919. Xo. 10 BEAL MAKES ANNUAL REPORT The Various School Activities Have Had Highly Successful Year. SEVERAL CHANGES OCCUR President Beal Will Sever His Connection With the School. T have been asked by the editor of the Weber Herald to give a brief report of the school activities for the past year. I am pleased to state our attendance this year has been most satisfactory, the records showing the following registration: Summer, 68 students; winter, 635 students. Total number of students registered for the school year, 703. This enrollment is by far the largest in the history of the institution. The approximate attendance of several years past has been about 500 students for the winter season. The registration given above shows an increase in attendance of more than 25 per cent over that of previous years. Activities of the School. This year our basketball team won the state tournament of which our school is justly proud. Several members of the school team were given state positions and two' members of the team were picked as honor men. ,TV - :,!" :,,a le i -.rclJth showing in the other school activities. The oratorical and debating work under Professor Kasius has been of a high standard. Many friends of the school have also stated that the school play, "Mice and Men," given this year under the direction of Mrs. Blanche McKey, was one of the best ever given by the school. Student Body Officers. At this point in the report I take the occasion to briefly mention the work of our student body officers. We have had splendid and efficient school officers this year under the leadership and guidance of Russell B. Petty, the student body affairs have been most ably and efficiently managed. Brother Petty has shown much ability as a student body president. Likewise, much credit is due Ernest Shreeve, editor of the Weber Herald, the school paper, and the business manager, Elmon Linford, for their splendid efforts. The Acorn, the school annual or year book, under the management of David McKay,editor-in-(Continued on Page Four) ACORN EDITOR IS CHOSEN The honor of editing the annual year book the Acorn for 1919-20 has fallen to a girl. Miss Ida Scow-croft having been chosen by the board of control to fill this very important position for the coining year. Xext year's Acorn should be one of the best in the history of the institution as Miss Scowcroft is fully capable, possessing all the necessary requisites of a successful editor. Her scholastic record ranks with the best in the school and her effective work as Junior vice president and exchange editor of the Herald should insure a highly successful year book. The students were entertained last Thursday in assembly by a short talk from William Minson. who has just returned from France. Minson at tended Weber until the outbreak of the war, when he enlisted. He was the first Weberite to go over. - v.- V-i'fi (: STANLEY RHEESE In one of the most exciting elections held in recent years, Stanley Rheese won out over William Kasius in the race for student body president for the coming year. The contest was featured by the spirited campaigning conducted by the leaders of the rival factions and was remarkably iiec liufn Lilt: uojcLioiii-iLlc' "muu slinging" of former years. Rheese was elected by nearly a 2 to 1 vote, the final count being 258 against Kasius' 134. Stanley owes his election, in a measure, to the girls who. following the example of the leaders of the girls' association, cast almost a solid vote for him. The office of vice president was closely contested, Arvilla Parry and Amanda Chamberlain running almost KASIUS NEW HERALD EDITOR Board of Cotrol Decides on Capable Man To Head Weber School Paper. William Kasius ('19) was chosen by a unanimous vote of the board of control as editor of the Weber Herald for the coming year. Mr. Kasius' extensive work in all student body activities was probably the reason for the board's decision. He has been associate editor this year, during which time he has been able to gain valuable information concerning its publication. His past work, which has been of a high standard, gives promise of an excellent paper, as his ideas are original, progressive and full of pep. Weber can look forward to a strong, newsy paper from Kasius next year. FIELD DAY Field day will be held on Thursday and promises to be one of the most successful events of the year. As yet the place where it will be held has not been definitely decided, but it will probably be staged at Lorin Farr park. This would be an ideal place, as there is plenty of space for contests and it also contains a dance hall. A game with the East Side High school of Salt Lake City is now being arranged and will be one of the hig attractions of the day. A win over Fast Side would give Weber the state championship in baseball, an honor Student fiody icers 19-20 STANLEY RHEESE, President AMANDA CHAMBERLAIN, Vice Preddent CLEONE LINDSAY, Secretary Treasurer ORVAL CARSTENSEN, Athletic Manager JOHN EMMETT, Debating Manager LE ROY JOHNSON, Dramatic Manager even in the three lower classes. The Senior class, however, went strong for "Pat" and placed her on the long end of a 209 to 183 count. The students exp.essed their confidence in a girl a secretary and treasurer by electing Cleone Lindsay over Clifford Doxey and Lucian Ray; the votes being 183, 138 and 70 for the respective nrA - -.q. ATic Tii-iri-say has the unique iionor of being the first girl to hold this position. Altho it is considered one of the most difficult of the student body offices, she is fully capable and will no doubt handle it in an efficient manner. No competition developed for- the offices of yell master, debating, ath-lectic and dramatic managers, as only one candidate was nominated for each of the offices. Lew Fretwell, John Emmett, Orval Carstensen and WILLIAM KASIUS we never held. The success of field day depends upon the student body, as a small attendance would make it a failure. The celebrations of the past few years have all been miserable frosts and we don't want another one.' Let's all turn out and make it a big success. Have you ever noticed that when Weber attempts to do a thing she always does it up right? Take the marching of the boys in the Mormon battalion for instance. To make the showing they did after only three days' training is something to be proud of. Don't forget to be there Field day. Election AMANDA CHAMBERLAIN Le Roy Johnson will fill these respective positions next year. The winners in the race for public service bureau offices had very little difficulty in carrying away the honors; all winning by a comfortable majority. Of the votes cast for president, Oa Jacobs polled 177 as against the 134 of Ruth Scowcroft and the 80 of F:-rl Valn. The vice prsidenrv will be handled by Vera Malan, while Le Roi Blaylock will officiate as secretary.The election was productive of much excitement and proved one of the most interesting events of the year. On the wdiole, the outcome should be entirely satisfactory, as all the new officers have shown their ability as leaders and should do much toward making next year highly successful.
