I his editor took the liberty to inquire into the situation and this is the findings. About two years ago, Weber consisted of mostly women, the men were clamoring for a lounge. The women already had a lounge which was located where it now is. Weber's administration, which definitely has the students' needs in heart, built a men's lounge on the top floor of the gymnasium. It was well furnished, although small and ill-located. The irony is that few persons ever used this gathering place, which the school had worked hard for and had put a considerable amount of money into. As time passed, the ess. Soon it became a wall. With the influx of so many veterans at the beginning of this year, another cry was raised for a men's lounge. Since classroom facilities were as hard to find as a needle in ets were cleaned out in space. Now, as this cry for a men s lounge becomes louder, the administration is faced with the problem of where to put it. For the time being, the men of the campus have formed their own lounge on the west steps of the gym building. Although it is a little cold at times and there are no chairs, lamps, pool tables, ping pong tables or books, it does make a gathering place even if they do block the doorway. Such suggestions as having a mixed lounge in the women's lounge, interchanging the men's and women's lounge and putting up a new building have been considered and eliminated. Mixed lounges have been tried and they don't work. Women need a place to be alone, more so than men. Interchanging the lounges would not be advisable and where on earth can the administration get the materials to build another building? This editor is convinced the men need a lounge; also he is convinced the administration wants to get on for them. But where is it going to be put? Perhaps a student Union building is the answer, or maybe one of these pre-fabricated houses the government has recently would suffice. Each male student is urged to consider all angles of this problem before he makes any statements about it. It is a problem that can be met with only if all facts are known. This editor is convinced that anyone having an idea which he thinks might work out should see President Dixon. Weber college is fortunate in having a man behind them who would give his blood for them. Perhaps a few interested students could form a committee and meet with the president and work out a solution. H. E. W. How do you like the blank expression on the face of the Weber college student pictured above? He is one of the many who has not had his Acorn picture taken yet. That is the way you are going to look if you don't get the blankety-blank down to Porter-Wheat studios between 2 and 6 p. m. on Monday through Friday. There is no charge, so let's get those faces photographed. Sec 562 P. L. & R.

Of course, this is only a mild example as common decency wouldn't permit the publishing of the real horrors that will happen. The Shadow. Ogden H. Students Present W. C. Assembly Weber students thrilled to the music of Ogden high school's famed acappella chair in an impressive assembly last Friday. Under the guidance of Glenn L. Hanson, music director, 110 voices blended to swell the college auditorium with tuneful refrain. Wearing traditional yellow and purple robes, the chorus opened a multiple-feature program presented entirely by the OHS student body with a rendition of "Music" followed by the spiritual air, "It's Me, O Lord", Al Jacob's "This Is My Country", and concluded their original contribution with "I Sat Down Under His Shadow." The "Violettes," Valeen Clark, Reva Brown, Elaine Fetcher and Barbara Robinson, then took the spotlight to play "Romance and Tambourine" and "Song of Spring" to a delighte-' audience. Nadine Bowman furnished the piano accompaniment.Providing v-riation to the musical theme Berma Goodwin and Stewart Par' er captivated the assembly and earned a well-deserved curtain call for their song and dance performance of the "Blue Danube" waltz. "Ma Lindy Lou" and "Make Believe" were contributed by an alt girl sextet and occupied the next position o.- he morning's entertainment. eals were furnished by Nona L ; Shupe, Melba Pulsipher, LaVaughn Hoagland, Louise Godfrey, Theone Hunter, and Miss Brown. A mixed quartet including Ray Wilde, Myron Campbell, Miss Pulsipher, and Miss Goodwin offered the final small group presentation singing "Giunnia Mia" and "Sweethearts". Cleo Faye Anderson at the piano. Returning to climax the day's program the a-cappella choir rendered "Oh Blest Are They," "Come Along Home," and "My God and I." Ballet Russe Is Well Received An excellent performance was given by the Ballet Russe Tuesday evening, just one hour after they arrived in Ogden. Fokines famous "Les Sylphides" was the first - selection. Several solos were done, with Chopins mazurkas, waltzes, and nocturnes setting the tempo of the dance. Oleg Turpine's elevated jetes drew forth bursts of applause when he soloed the mazurka. Ballerinas Nina Stroganova, Tatiana Stepa-nova and Genevive Moulin were principal dancers in this famous ballet Biazzare scenery, customes, and Serge Rachmanioff s superb rhapsody on a theme by Paginini captivated the capacity crowd, when Fokine's "Paganini" was performed. Johann Strauss' "Blue Danube" was a charming, effervescent selection. Light and gray, it was marked by some of the most intricate steps of ballet. The charming young painter, Wallace Slebert, turned in 1947 juouks runny, doesn't it? Well, pledges, wait until your turn comes. It won't be so funny. These people are just posing but you won't be. Beware of Hell week, your time has come. a Rho Omega To Sponsor Annual Contest Who is the most popular students on the Weber college campus? Well, if you would like to know, all you have to do is get behind us in our typical Mr. and Miss Weber college contest to be held later on in the year. So if you have a special liking for some bundle of personality either male or female and would like to help him or her to get some publicity as well as a swell prize, your vote will do it. Nominations are to be held and the five voted highest of the girls and the five highest of the boys will constitute the nomination ballot. Every member of the school will be allowed to put up any student they so desire. The elections are to be fair and impartial. The only qualifications being that the nominated students are carrying the required hours. The final voting will take place at a dance being co-sponsored with Tiki Kapa Kapa. Each couple will receive a ballot as they enter the dance at which time they may cast a vote for their choice. So think it over and get in your vote. a nice job of scene stealing, assisted by the Athlete, Marian Ladre. In all, it was an excellent performance, before a capacity crowd. True ballet apparently is appreciated wherever it appears. NUMBER 10 Weber May Get New System Adoption of a new, improved award system next week is a strong probability, according to Charles A. Osmond, Faculty Chairman of the Awards, Scholarship and Eligibility committee. Faculty members of the committee have amended and approved the new plans, and both faculty and student members of the committee confer next week to approve the new measure, after which the plans will go to the board of control for final approval. Official publication of the revised award system awaits official sanction by the board, but tentatively, the future policy is as follows:Purposes: 1. To stimulate active participation in extra-curricula activities. 2. To encourage maximum a-chievement in one's chosen field. Eligibility for awards in recognition of excellent routine class-work will thus be instituted for the first time at Weber. 3. To recognize and thus promote outstanding service to Weber college. Classification of awards: A. Service Awards to be given predominantly for school government and publication activities. B. Achievement Awards to be given for activity in music, speech, debating and other activities of a competitive nature. C. Athletic awards for all recognized sports in which three or more intercollegiate contests are f Goats ' Week Horror Chambers Of Hell Week Ready-Shadow Pledges! Beware It is coming! Hell Week is almost here. You cannot escape it. The inevitable cannot be delayed. Your turn may come next! Are you ready? The shadow knows. Ha, ha, ha! What fate will you choose? the chamber of horrors is prepared! The instruments of torture are ready! Will you choose the stretcher, or would you prefer the pendulum of Poe? Will you select the slow torture of the iron claw, or the slow strangulation of rawhide thongs around your slim, white necks? Would you have burning splinters under your finger nails, or the insane monotony of dripping water on your forehead? Think it over you have no choice! Yes, it is true, three days of simulated hell await the Goats of Weber's social clubs. When will it happen? The dates are buried in my brain, but you will know-when? No, I will not say, but beware of Monday next. Tuesday and Wednesday may also witness scenes of inhuman cruelty in the inner-sanctum of Weber college corridors. The chambers arc prepared.You ask, do you Pledge creatures, what is in store for you and your kind? Have you ever imagined yourself clothed in shiny black tar glittering with pretty white feathers? No, such pretty minds as yours cannot imagine ! Have you thought of yourself as an insane idiot in a busy downtown store with your shoes off doing a "This little piggy went to market" scene. Can you see the girls of Weber in school in their negligees, with cold cream covering their faces, and their hair still in curlers. Better still, does the impression of male Goats in their revealing negligees appeal to your humorous taste. How would you like to stand on 25th and Washington selling the daily paper, "Scotch Tissue." These, Pledges, are only a few of the minor things that have been planned for you for Hell Week. These, and many many more, have been arranged for you by your own club members. Beware, Pledges, the ides of January 27, 28, and 29. The Shadow. Play Tryouts Set Monday for Community Theatre Tryouts will be held for the comedy play "My Sister Eileen" Monday in the Moench building, room 406, under the direction of John G. Kelly. This play will be given under the Community Theatre plan. It is expected that a majority of the roles will be given to college students if sufficient students attend the try-out,"My Sister Eileen" was written by Joseph Field and Jerome Chad-arov, and is based on a story as by Ruth McKenney. The play contains no message but is strictly a comedy written for comedy's sake. There are 27 speaking parts, five of which are for women, and 18 non-speaking parts (not counting the four dogs) and the technical staff. "My Sister Eileen" is the second in the series of Community Theatre plays and is replacing "The Desert Song" which was scheduled for this quarter. The play will be given March 6, 7 and 8. Copies will be available at the school and the Carnegie Library for those who would like to study the parts prior to the tryouts. Paul Robeson to Appear Here March 3 at OHS Ogden music lovers are looking forward to the appearance of the great Negro baritone, Paul Robeson, March 3 at 8:30 p. m., in the Ogden high school auditorium. Mr. Robeson, a great singer and actor and one of the leading spoke-men of his race and one of the leading American liberals, has thrilled audiences wherever he has sung with his magnificent singing and speaking voice. He is the holder of five academic degrees and numerous citations for his service to his race and to humanity in general. Arrangements are being made to have a block of tickets available for sale at the Weber college treasurer's office. Mail orders for tickets will be accepted now at Glen Brother's Music Store, and the box office there will open Feb. 22. held. Only one purple jacket will be given as an athletic award, and also, as formerly, it will display a white "Block W." The award for the second year in any sport will be a distinctive monogram. Next award assembly will be postponed until the purple jackets arrive, according to Mr. Osmond, who further said that the awards committee has recommended that an award assembly be held each quarter.

|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.|
