VOLUME 10 OGDEN, UTAH, THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1947 NUMBER 9 Growing Weber C. Presents lis "Varsity Vignettes" Jan 23 At O. H. S. Honoring Founders Have You Asked Yourself Why Weber College Should Expand? With the start of this school year Weber college witnessed an enormous change. It discovered it had outgrown its clothes. Veterans, returning from the service, flocked into this small, two-year junior college and overnight doubled its enrollment. School officials tried their best to adjust the college to meet its growing demands. But they find it takes a larger college to do a good job. At the beginning of the school year, President H. A. Dixon issued a statement which read, "Weber eyes the biggest year in its history." This is more than true, because now is the time the college can mature into a four-year institution. Another evidence of the fact that this college was growing was the return to its campus of the Acorn, the year book and Scribulus, its quarterly magazine. Social clubs were instigated and reorganized. Departments were added and the extra curricular activities were enlarged. With all of this, the school and its program is still to small to handle all the students and produce well educated individuals. It was the hope of the faculty to keep the classes small and thus assure that individual students would be dealt with separately, not as one of hundreds. This "hope" is, of course, the best method of teaching, as the student naturally learns more. This "hope" was generally held, but the task of keeping it was a difficult one. After the first week of the Autumn quarter registration was over, the faculty members knew they had been through something.The enrollment had increased by 100 per cent. This meant over 1500 students were roaming the halls of Weber, trying to find a crowded class room. ( nhuud ri 2) Th Drinker"
