Weber State College April 19, 1977 ) Y - - - V .. J - SPRING is here and so are midterms. Photo by John Shupe Feature this: 'Vitality the key to life, y history prof says by Holidae Aguirre "Keeping your vitality is the key to enjoying life," says Dr. Donald Moorman, Professor of History at Weber State College. Moorman says he enjoys good cooking, "Gourmet cooking is one thing I truly like to do." Stimulating conversation, friends, and an aged wine along with the meal, "that's my idea of a good time," Moorman said. Moorman also expressed a love for classical music. "I'd rather have a fine record I could listen to in the privacy of my home instead of trying to listen to a concert over the rattle of programs." "I'm also an old movie fan," he admits, "especially the late 30's and early 40's. Humphrey Bogart, Allan Ladd and James Garfield, to name a few, were my favorites. I also had a crush on a redhead - Ronda Fleming was her name. I guess I was around nine then." Moorman went on to say the film industry should be proud of the progress and advancements in production and the excellence in talent they have reached today in movies. Parallel to the floor TV is not far behind on his list of hobbies. "During football or golf season on any given Sunday you'll find me stretched out in a horizontal position from the first to the last game." "It's my own type of therapy," says Moorman "for all serious thoughts disappear." Moorman tells of a time when he took his own pulse," I was curious as to just how relaxed I'd become, it was 62 beats per minute," he was astonished.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
