Student Officers Extend Welcome On behalf of all the student-body we want to extend a welcome to the freshmen attending Weber college for the first time this year. We are happy to have you as members of our college student-body. The traditions of Weber are many and proud, and we hope that in as short a time as possible that you will learn them and appreciate them as the sophomores and alumni do. The "Weber family" spirit is not a myth but an actuality as you will soon discover. We are a united and happy student body, If you, as freshmen, will support the college and all its activities you can do much to further the friendly "one big happy family" spirit that now exists. We want you to be active both in scholastic and student-body functions. If you want to work on ore of our many student committees please contact one of your student-body officers. The future of Weber is indeed the brightest it has ever been. Soon, perhaps before you have to leave the campus, Weber will be a four-year college. We have a beautiful new campus site in the southeastern part of our city and we will be able to expand into a college befitting our enrollment, spirit, and the city of Ogden. Once again, welcome to Weber, and welcome into our student-body family. Laurence Burton Jane Ann Slater Shirley Chambers Bert Oorkey Larry Williamsen Sec. 562, P. L. & R.

AMS Officers Suggest Improvements New officers of Associated Men Students elected recently are: Hy Sanders, president; Mark Petrich, vice-president; and Dee Call, secretary.Dr. William Stratford, dean of men, said the elections were temporary in order to give the freshmen a chance to become better acquainted with sophomores and the other members of their own class. Regular elections will probably be held the last part of this quarter. Dean Stratford hopes that by having offices filled permanently later this quarter, the unaffiliated students in school may have a better chance to be represented. He also called attention to the fact that these officers contemplate installing upholstered steps on the gym building in order that the fellows may be more comfortable as they see, and are seen by the more attractive half of our student body. Hy Sanders stated that AMS will have one day set aside for them each month during the rest of the school year, and the next big event will be a rally before the team leaves for California. Signpost Rejected The Weber college Board of Control rejected a Signpost request for non-voting memberships on that board in a meeting held Wednesday, October 1. Signpost officials stated that the board will be asked to reconsider this request at the next regular meeting.

The speakers on the assembly were the members of the Ogden Chamber of Commerce. Laurence Burton acted as master of ceremonies for the rally and Mayor David S. Romney was chairman and introductory speaker. The members of the Chamber of Commerce were organized into a mythical football team with Mayor Romney as coach. To liven up the school and promote more school spirit the cheerleaders led the school in some yells and the members of Whip Club led the school song. The band, led by Mr. Dickson, played several marches and accompanied the singing of the school song. Immediately following the Pep rally the student body formed a snake line led by the temporary AMS officers. They wove in and around the campus and then down 24th street and ended the dance on the City Hall steps. To arouse spirit as they went, the Victory bell proceeded along the snake line, ringing as a symbol of victory. To stimulate further interest in the game, a narade was started at the college at 5:30, where students were to decorate their cars with the school colors. The parade went through Ogden, and proceeded to the stadium. At the half way mark in the game all decorated cars were driven around the stadium to determine the most unique decorated car. Three prizes in monev were eiven to the best decorated cars. First prize was given to Phoenix, second place went to Skull Club and the Otyokwa girls won third nlaoe. Mr. Carl Green, Mr. John Kelly, Dr. William Stratford and Mayor David Romney were the judges. At the conclusion of the game a student body dance was held in the College Ballroom. The student body officers were in charge of the parade and the dance. Tonight Victory Schedule uoacn jymion mecnam, vvhuixil mentor, commented, "Jay Tolman and Lloyd Jones, coaches of Mesa, may expect to upset us but the boys have it in for Mesa, especially after losing such a hard-fought game last season. I expect a rough battle from beginning to end. Mesa will know they've had a footbal game after Friday night." Mesa scored a 7-6 win over Weber last year in a game played at Grand Junction. A muddy field prevented the Wildcats from scoring several times. Mesa Considered Strong This year's Mesa team is generally considered one of the strongest and best-coached in theUtah-Colorado junior college league. The 35 gridders of Coach Jay Tolman arrived in Ogden yesterday. Dick Williams and Merrill Cros-bie of the Weber line-up, both injured an the Idaho State contest last week, will be back on the field tonight. Captains Comment Weber co-captains Lloyd Thompson and Merrill Crosbie, both veterans of last year's defeat at the hands of Mesa, commented, "Mesa might have to map out a different strategy this year. They caused us a lot of grief last year. Our student body never reached the game. A snowplow hit the bus they were riding. Also, Coaches Mecham and Wellman were shaken up a bit in an automobile accident before game time. That made a difference, you know!" W. C.

We have 60 instructors teaching 100 classes in academic, pre-professional, business and scientific fields." Six women's classes in upholstery and clothing were closed in the first hour after registration had began. When registration is completed, Weber is expected to maintain the largest night school in her history. Ends This Week Registration will end this week for some courses.

|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.|
