Sffoiirs(pSL( I Volume 39 INumbor 2 Debaters Participating schools include Harvard, UCLA by Linda Ferguson Not only did WSC compete in the largest intercollegiate debate tournament in the world last week, but the college will host one of the largest high school debate meets in the country. Randy Scott, debate coach, likened the invitational intercollegiate debate tournament held at the University of Utah 1st weekend to the Rose Bowl. "There was an extremely high level of competition," he said. "Sixty-eight colleges and universities from all over the country participated." "This tournament is a big, prestigious event. Participating schools included Harvard, Georgetown, Northwestern, USC, UCLA, and Boston College," Scott stated. Julie La Vine, WSC junior, took first place for oral interpretive prose. Her two programs were from J.D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye," and Dylan Thomas' "Adventures in the Skin Trade." In the final round she was competing against five people from USC. The Reader's Theatre, composed of Stuart Thatcher, Dirk Julander and Brent Lutz, received third place in collective multiple group interpretation. The senior division debate team, composed of Susan Malone, a senior, and Sheldon Nebeker, a freshman, had a record of four and four. Scott said this was great for this tournament, considering Harvard's score of four wins, four losses. Harry Davis was in the finals for Senior Afterdinner speaking. Leland A. Monson Debate Tournament RANDY SCOTT tournament director compete Today and tomorrow WSC will host one of the largest high school debate tournaments in the country. 40 to 50 high schools in Utah, Idaho, and Colorado will be represented by 640 students. The Leland A. Monson tournament will start at noon today. Final awards will be presented Saturday at 5 p.m., closing the meet. There are 40 teams in senior division and 100 in junior division. Other events will include legislative forum, oral interpretive speaking, and ex-temporous speaking, where candidates draw a topic from current events and have a half hour to prepare their speech. Judges are provided by the high schools themselves, but are also drawn from the local community. A total of about 100 judges are needed for all the . events. Randy Scott, director of the tournament, said it was unique because of the double elimination factor. "Teams can lose two debates before they are out," he said. At the end of the rounds on Friday, teams with a 3-1 record will return Saturday for the finals. Other innovations include a silver platter to any undefeated teams, if there are any, in the senior division. A special award will go to the person with the highest score on a written test about Robert's Rules of Order, for knowledge of parlimentary procedure. Dr. Harold Hunker is executive director of the debate meet, along with Dr. Ben Noid, as individual events director. Jay Clegg is in charge of the legislative forum, and Louise Kingsbury, publicity. Weber State College debate team members will also run the tournament. Scott called this tournament "a big, big happening." President Rodney Brady said it is a significant event on campus and urged faculty and staff support. Senior division debates will be held in the Social Science Building along with junior division debates also in the same building, the Education Building, Building 4, and in the Union Building.

|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.|
