PfaHRMAU) If DEDICATED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRESS OFFICIAL PAPER OF WEBER ACADEMY AND COLLEGE VOL. III. OGDEN. UTAH. THURSDAY, JAXUARY 9, 1919 Xo. 2 BASKETBALL OFF WITH RUSH Weber Will Have One of the Best Teams in Division. MAN-Y OLD MEN BACK Twelve Teams in Division Separation Into Three Sections Probable. Weber's basketball stock took sudden rise when tbirty-five men responded to Coach Watson's call last Monday. This is the largest number that has ever turned out on the first night of practice and, judging from appearances, Weber will have one of the most successful years in the history of the school. "Male" is very enthusiastic over the prospects, as he has seldom had such good material to pick from. ( The return of the S. A. T. C. men has added a number of older players who are in the pink of condition and who will fight hard for a place on the team. Among these are Newman, Hinckley and Campbell. Jones our two-hundred-pound, six-foot center, has entered school and will no doubt hold down the pivot position as before. His superior weight and height should prove a Waterloo to opposing centers. Schade, of basket-shooting fame, has succumbed to the lure of the game and will make his appearance in a Weber uniform. Although somewhat light, his fast work and accurate basket-throwing has placed him with the leading forwards of the division. Great things are expected of Lindsay this year, as his work in league games has marked him as a coming man. Owing to the epidemic, Weber has had a late start, while some of the other schools have been in action for some time. However, this handicap will be overcome by some strenuous work. The class series will be under way by the first of next week and will give Watson a line on his players. The athletic room has been renovated and the showers have undergone some needed repairs so that everything is ready for a fast start. A meeting will be held Saturday in Salt Lake City under the auspices of the High School Athletic Association. All the coaches of the state will be present to discuss athletics and arrange a definite schedule for the coming year. The arrangement of the Northern division may undergo a few changes, as three more schools the Brigham Young College, Logan High and the State School for the Deaf have applied for admission. If their applications are accepted there will be twelve schools entered in the division. This will necessitate its separation into secevarl sections. It is probable that Weber. Ogden, Brigham, Davis and State School will be placed in one; South Cache. North Cache, B. Y. C. and Logan High in another, and Kamas. Morgan and Coalville in a third. This arrangement will be of value to all as it will eliminate long and costly trips. ACORN WANTS ASSISTANCE The Acorn is Weber's yearbook a yearbook that lias set its standard of excellence; a yearbook that is made or marred by the students. The staff can arrange and assort the articles in it. but it cannot write them all. Fellow searchers after knowledge. you are to say whether your book is representative of you; whether it is the snappiest, most interesting book ever published, or is a cut and dried failure. Write a lively short story a Jesse James, Buffalo Bill, or Pride and Prejudice any type, no matter what, if it is interesting and speedy. And snapshots! One snapshot from every student every day from now till June would almost supply this year's book. If Brother Ricks gets hit with a snowball, take a picture of it; wdten Victor makes love to Mary, make a permanent record of it for all the world to see. Last Friday was a soldier's day. How many of you got pictures of hte boys in uniform? Some of you can cartoon. Send a few dozen drawings to the staff. And always save a good joke when you find it. David McKay, William Kasius, Byron Chadwick, Mary Wooley, William Moyes, or Russell Petty will take your contributions, or if you do not know any of these, give the articles to your class reporters and see that they hand them in. You are not only benefitting the staff when you do this, but you are making the name Acorn a by-word for the book of a live, active, wide-awake student body. D. McK. FINANCE BOARD HOLDS MEETING New Financial Policy Adapted-Finance Board to Control Funds. At its regular meeting Wednesday, September 25, 1918, the finance board of Weber Normal College outlined a new financial policy to be followed this year. Heretofore there have been many different departments in the school which have received separate appropriations from the board to meet their expenses. As a result there has been considerable confusion on account of the numerous accounts run at the business houses of the city. Therefore in order to avoid this confusion and in order that the finances of the Weber student body may be placed upon a sound business footing, the finance board unanimously passed the following motions: First, that there be one general fund for all student body money. The finance board will have direct supervision over this fund. Second, any department which may need money for any purpose must fill out a requisition and hand it to the secretary of the student body, who will present this requisition at the regular meeting of the finance board. If it is passed by the board it will be signed by the president of the student body and the chairman of the finance board. Then, with these two signatures, the original copy of the requisition will be presented to the firm from whom the goods are purchased, while the duplicate goes to the treasurer of the finance board, who pays the bill. The requisition will act as an order, authorizing the purchase. Then, with this system in effect, it will be impossible for any firm to become confused by the numerous separate accounts. Everything bought for the student body will be charged to the Fnance Board of Weber Normal College Student Body. This centralization will give stability and strength to the financial side of student affairs. K. S. FORMER EDITOR IN FRANCE Dale Phillips Writes Christmas Victory Letter to His Father. SEES SUB ;. DESTROYED Has Made Several Trips to Cities on the Coast. Writing from Gievres, France, Dale Phillips ('18) has sent an interesting account of his experiences in the army to his father, T. ,G. Phillips, of this city. Phillips, who was the editor of the Harald last jear, enlisted at the close of the scho'il with Arthur Lin-ford, star guard of our basketball team. They were fortunate in being assigned to a company which was sent to France soon after their enlistment.The letter is as follows: Dear Dad: I guess I had better "fall in" with the rest of the 4.oys and write you what is called "Dad's Xmas Victory Letter." I don't jknow just what to write, but I suppose now that the scrap is over you are wondering how soon I'll be coming back. Prospects are a bit brighter'and I might be able to shorten the time from June to March or AprjJ. ' I only wish I could say this Xmas. But this is not what we are supposed to write about. We are expected to tell you what we are doing, etc. I don't think that I can tell all, but when I get home and get to talking I will be able to remember a lot more. Just a brief description of our trip. We sailed from 43rd street and Broadway and went to Halifax. We were escorted out of New York by a dirigible balloon, aeroplanes and sub chasers. Just three boats sailed from New York at the time. We reached Halifax three days later and stayed two days. I saw the marks of the big explosion of the ammunition ship that happened sometime last June. It ripped down trees, wharves and many buildings. We left Halifax in company with twenty-one other ships, escorted by one cruiser. We sailed almost due north for several days and saw ice bergs. Then we turned east. We were near the coast of Ireland on the last day of the trip and the sub chasers which had come out the day before to meet us, were scouting around. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon the sea wv.s calm and the sun (Continued on Page Four) GIRLS PLAN BIG DAY . The girls held their first meeting of the year last week. This association is one of the largest organizations in the school and every girl is a member of it. Last year was the first real beginning of the girls' organization and since then, with our socials, parties and plays not forgetting "Girls' Day" we have shown he boys what we can do without their aid. But oh, boys, watch out for the girls now or they will leave you in the dust. This year we hope to accomplish even more than last year, and with the aid of every girl we will be able to do so. We arc already planning for the annual "get acquainted ball" of the season, for girls only. Did you get that, boys? "For girls only," and it will be given as soon as "Shorten" decides to raise the ban on parties. Each class is to give a vaudeville of their own. and already you will find groups of girls stationed in different corners discussing and giving brilliant ideas, so, boys, please do not become too inquisitive and keep your distance from them, for behold, the girls have started and will not quit until the last day of school. The officers for this year are: Let-tie Ririe, president; Oa Jacobs, vice president; Bernice Randall, secretary-treasure; Ruth Evans, reporter; Effie Kasius, athletic manager; Luella Nicholas, yell master. OGDEN DISCONTIUES "TIGER" According to information given out by prominent students of the school, Ogden High has decided to drop the publication of its bi-weekly paper, the "Tiger." Xro reason has been given, but it is believed that owing to the time lost through the "flu" epidemic a heavy schedule of study has been arranged, leaving no time for work on the paper. It is understood, however, that the yearbook, the "Classicum," will be published. P. S. BUREAU MAKES START Programs Given With Big Success in Wards. The Public Service Bureau of Weber was organized three years ago under the supervision of one of our instructors, David J. Wilson. The purpose of this organization is implied in its name the rendering of service to the public. This aim has been accomplished in various ways, such as aiding the students to secure employment, giving information in regard to rooming and boarding houses, and to furnish musical numbers, readings and programs for the wards and different institutions. Every member of the student body belongs to the Public Service Bureau. The following officers are in charge: President, Effie Kasius; vice president, Arvilla Parry; secretary, and treasurer, Oa Jacobs. They are starting out with the intentions of continuing the work adopted in previous years and with the hope of finding new methods for rendering service to the public. Many students have already been helped through this bureau to find lost books and other miscellaneous articles. Letters will soon be circulated to the bishops of the wards .presidents of the various institutions and to the business men in Ogden, conveying to them the message that we are at their service whenever they desire it. The Public Service Bureau also hopes to in-: crease Weber's enrollment and to act as an advertising agency for the school. The following patriotic program was given at Xorth Ogden September 27, 1918, at the departure of a soldier from their community, Miss Effie Kasius conducting the meeting: Piano Prelude Cleone Lindsay. Prayer Mr. Blaylock. Vocal Solo Eva Porter. Patriotic Talk Mr. Savage. Piano Trio Cleone Lindsay. Lcttie Ririe, Josephine Volkcr. Reading Lettic Ririe. Dedication of Service Flag Mr. Blaylock. Vocal Solo Eva Volker. At the Industrial School on September 29. 1918. musical numbers and readings were given by the following: Cleone Lindsay, Ruth Evans, Xorma Hussey and Effie Kasius. Fellow students, let us co-operate and make this the most successful year of the Public Service Bureau. E. K. ANNUAL PLAY IS UNDER WAY 'The Lost Paradise" to Staged Deals With Labor Question. Be LARGE CAST REQUIRED Will be Presented in Latter Part of February. With the selection of a competent play. Mrs. McKey, head of the dramatic department, has begun work on the annual production. "The Lost Paradise." by Henry C. De Mille, was chosen by the director only after careful consideration. This is the first play to be produced under the direction of our new instructor and its progress will be watched with interest by all the students. Mrs. McKey is fully competent as she has had considerable experience in dramatic work, both as a teacher and actress. She is entirely , conversant with all parts of this drama, having once taken the part of Nell, one of the leading roles. It had been suggested that Weber stage a war play this year, but owing to the fact that the public has tired of war and war dramas, it was not deemed advisable to do so. The one chosen is a three-act drama dealing with the labor question. It is ihe one in which Maude Adams rur.de her debut and is considered one of the best of its type. It is a very difficult play and requires an experienced cast to stage successfully. Most of those chosen to take part have had experience in former productions and their work has drawn favorable comment from the press and public. This fact should insure a highly finished production. As there are fourteen speaking-roles, besides a large number of non-speaking parts, the cast will be large. The following have been selected to take part: Mary Wolley, Grace Stone, Ruth Evans, Lettie Ririe, Hazel Stone, Ida Scowcroft, Stanley Rheese, Frank Newman, Russell Petty, Ther-on Jones, John Croft, David McKay, Golden Bingham, Eugene Wiggins, and John Emmett. There are still a number of parts that have not been assigned. These will be given out in the near future. Weber's productions of the past have all been highly successful and there is no reason why this one should not at least equal those of former years. With strong support from the student body and hard work on the part of the players Weber will again go "over the top." The date of its presentation has not been determined, but it will probably be some time in the later part of February. WEBER DOUBLES QUOTA During these critical times every person and institution has had an opportunity of showing their colors. We are proud of Weber's response in the fourth Liberty loan, to which she contributed nearly $10,000. almost double the amount asked. We are delighted with this record, and as far as we have been able to discover, no school of our size in the state has given more to Uncle Sam. The student body officers take this opportunity of complimenting the faculty and student body for their generous response. We also wish to add that the fifth Liberty loan is approaching and we expect Weber to exceed her quota by a large margin.
