Helen Abbot displayed her ability by playing the pipe organ. Each contestant received a box of candy at the end of the performance.States Mr. Clement, "In the future, we look forward to having a program of wider variety.

|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.|
