Features Parade In addition to the snake dance and assembly, the various social organizations and individuals will decorate cars and floats for a parade through downtown Ogden, preceding the homecoming football game with Compton college of Compton, California. Half-time activities for the game, which promises to be one of the most outstanding on the Weber schedule, are slated under the sponsorship of the student-body and the social units. Sponsors Dance Following the game the student body association and the alumni association will sponsor the annual homecoming dance in the college ballroom. Compton college was last year's national junior college football champs after their decisive defeat of Kilgore, Texas, Junior College in the Little Rose Bowl at Pasadena. These two outstanding teams played before a crowd of 51,000, making this bowl game the fourth largest in the nation, ranking only after the Rose Bowl, Shrine game, and the Sugar bowl. Chances Favored If Compton is defeated in the homecoming classic Weber would stand excellent chances of playing in this year's Little Rose Bowl. Student body officers and alumni officials have extended cordial welcomes for former Weber students and alumni, and invite them to participate in the homecoming activities. Committees Form Soon Committees have not been set up by the Board of Control, but "The response from students to act on these committees has been very encouraging," said Lawrence Burton, school prexy. "Over a hundred students have applied." "At the end of the week we should have the committees all set up," Lawrence said. He also added. "In behalf of the Board of Control I want to thank the students for their interest in this work."

Lecture Series Opens, Thomas Scheduled First Bruce Thomas, traveler, war. cor-4 respondent, lecturer and free lance writer, will return to Weber college on October 16 at 8 p. m. to give the first lecture on the Weber college series. His subject will be "Spain, Cradle of Conflict." There have always been conflicts between the different classes of Spanish people, between Spain and other countries, and between people's opinions of Spain. Bitterness, great literature, broken bodies, promise, and hope have come from troubled Spain. Thomas will explain many of Spain's conflicts and will also tell why one faction in the United States contends that the Franco policy assisted us toward the war while another faction insists it did not. Mr. Thomas appeared on the lecture series last year when he gave his opinion and reaction to the atomic bombs. His lecture was on "Making the Orient Our Business." These lectures are of a series of "I was there". This year Mr. Thomas went back to Spain to gather more information for his talk on Spain, which, according to Clarence Wilson, lecture chairman, will draw a record crowd. Faculty Party Set The Weber college Faculty Alumni association will hold its first party of the fall quarter on Tuesday, October 14, at the "Meadows" according to an announcement by Dr. Robert A. Clarke, president of the association. The party will start at 4 p. m. with a series of games and will be followed by "chow" at 5:15, program and camp fire harmonizing until 6:30.

Capturing the college and the city with the spirit of the islands in the form of hulu dancers, island melodies and a great football squad, the Mickalums were given the keys to the city Monday evening in a municipal building ceremony and feted at a pre-game rally Wednesday night in the Egyptian theater. College Inn Sets Opening The College Inn, commonly known as the CI and the favorite spot of Weber's multitude, will be back in service in a new location next week to serve the students and their wants, according to Farrell Shepherd, manager of the college bookstore and the college inn. The newly equipped CI has been transferred from its cramped quarters in the gymnasium to new spacious rooms in Annex 2. Newly equipped with 24 stools and a large fountain as well as short order service the CI will cater to the snack wants of students for the coming year. Hours are now from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m., but if the demand merits it the fountain will remain open until perhaps 9 p. m. according to Mrs. Lola Allred, manager of the fountain. Contract for the installation of the fountain and the stools is held by the Salt Lake Cabinet Company, and the only drawback to a previous opening has been the lack of stools. Others employed by the fountain include Mrs. Esther Johnson in charge of the kitchen and Norma Fletcher, fountain assistant. Church Club Plans Fall Schedule Lambda Delta Sigma has planned its fall schedule with the first party to be held in the near future. A Halloween party, a work night, and a Christmas party are also planned. The first fireside is to be held October 12. Meetings will be every other Sunday night. These firesides were successful last year, according to Nicholas Van Alfen, advisor, and he is confident they will be as successful this year. Lambda Delta Sigma has received about 90 applications for membership and those applicants who meet all the requirements set by the club will be initiated at the end of the fall quarter. The officers, who were elected last spring, are: for the boys chapter, Frank Blair, president; Bob Daniels, vice president; Stewart Radmall, fireside director; Robert De Boer, assistant fireside director; the girls chapter, Carma Baggs, president; Lu Jean Gibby, vice president; Jean Michaelson, secretary; and Laurel Checketts, treasurer.

Election of officers will take place, as well as a discussion of activities and field trips. All stu dents interested in joining the club are invited to attend. -f Slated to enter their hard fight ing crew against Weber in hopes of repetition of last year's 6-0 win, the Mickalums will play in the third game of the four-game home series for the college. Given City Key The team was welcomed to Ogden in a Monday evening ceremony at which Harold L. Welch, Ogden city commissioner, presented Fred Carter, Mickalums president, the key to the city. The ceremony, in charge of Laurence Burton, student body president, included music by the college band and Musettes, cheers, welcoming and acceptance by the Hawaiians. Leis were presented to President Henry Aldous Dixon, Reed K. Swenson, athletic director, and Milt Mecham, head Weber coach. Mr. Swenson, in extending a welcome to the Mickalums, said, "We are extremely happy to say Aloha to our friends from Hawaii. We are only sorry that only 28 of the many people who made our visit one to be long remembered could be our guests here. In the short time we spent in the islands a year ago we made friendships that we will always cherish. To Fred Carter, president; Bill Baker and Philip Minn, coaches, and to the managers and team we welcome you and hope that to a small extent we can repay you for our visit to the Islands." Flies to Mainland The group arrived in Ogden by chartered bus from San Francisco after flying to the Mainland and entered into daily practice sessions Tuesday with Wednesday s pre- game rally extending a second welcome to them. Miss Ruby Morse, Mickalum football queen, was the highlight of the theater party with her hulu dance but was closely paralleled by the musical performance of the team itself. Mr. Swenson welcomed Mr. Carter, Mr. Baker, and Mr. Minn in the opening ceremony of the party. Selections from the college talent list were included In the program. Thursday events in tip ntennial week included the a.'. pre sented by the Hawaiians in which the team, Miss Morse, and authentic Island color took the spotlight. Queen Presented Half-time activities at the game tonight are scheduled to include presentation of the Utah centennial queen, Calleen Robinson, and her attendants and acceptance by the Mickalums officials. The game, expected to surpass previous football attendance records by several thousands, will be followed by a centennial dance in the college ballroom at which the Hawaiians will be honored guests. Dixon Comments Dr. Dixon, in welcoming the Mickalums to Ogden, commented, "I think that the Wcber-Mickalum relationship is sportsmanship at its best. We want everyone in the institution to show every attention to the Hawaiians, but the most we could do would not equal their cordiality to us last year. Welcome to Ogden and Weber college."

|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.|
