Radio Transmitter Nears Completion A Weber college radio station will soon become an actuality according to Merlin Stevenson, chairman of the physical science division of the college. Mr. Stevenson said that installation of the transmitter, which will confine broadcasts to the campus area, will soon be complete. E. Smith Murphy, radio technology instructor, is supervising installation. Upon completion of the installation, the radio technology students and speech students, under the direction of John Grover Kelly, will cooperate in presenting original productions which will be broadcast and recorded, Mr. Stevenson said. The new radio transmitter will allow a direct approach to the radio technology field as well as the radio production field. It will allow a deviation from the straight electrical engineering field for those who desire radio work, according to Mr. Stevenson. Dorians Need Tenors; Bass Also Wanted The "Dorian Singers" of Weber college consist of twelve girls and twenty-four boys. Their first performance of the school year will be a one hour honcert at the "Woodman" club in Ogden. Along with giving concerts around the state they will include renditions from "A Child Is Born" in Sunday evening services. "The Dorians were very active last year, touring throughout Utah and the parks; singing before thousands of people. We expect to do twice as much this year," Roland Parry, director, stated. To complete this group, three more high tenors are desired and one base. Anyone desiring to fill in one of these openings must contact Mr. Parry. SOPHS FOR VOW 'HOT' WEEK WEBER GREENLING! A fellow all Weberites will get to know before the year is over is Jack Critehlow, Weber college student body president. Mr. Critehlow, and other student body officers have promised an active year for the college student body. Listen - Opportunity Knocks This school year is Weber's year of opportunity. If our undertakings succeed, it will go down in history for its achievement. If our understandings fail, they will be forgotten. I was a member of the staff when the school was Weber Academy. 1 had charge of the first college courses in 1916 when the institution was called Weber Normal College. I returned soon after it became Weber college, a two-year institution, and I hope by this time next year Weber College will be a four-year institution, as it has long desired to be. If we can only cause the legislature and the public to understand our needs, I am certain that it will be a four-year institution and that appropriations will be made for some magnificant new buildings on the campus. To start to plan and to build anew without the incumbrances of old, ugly buildings poorly placed is an opportunity that comes to few institutions of higher learning. That opportunity is ours. The outlook for the school year is the brightest it has ever been. For this reason, I am most enthusiastic in my welcome to the faculty and the students as we commence the new school year. The appropriation for this year, thanks to the special session of the legislature, is adequate. The faculty has been enlarged in order that the classes might be reduced in size and that the teaching load for instructors come within the range of the best educational standards. A sizeable proportion of the faculty have doctor's degrees; a significant number of the members are working on their dissertations for the doctor's degree, and others are on leave of absence completing their classwork. Laboratories and classrooms are well equipped. The library has been enlarged, a splendid new carpentry shop converted out of the old Central Auditorium, has been built, the Bertha Eccles Hill provides a fine dormitory for out of town girls and a social center for the entire student body, and all buildings have been thoroughly renovated. Prospects for successful student activities are also exceptionally bright. The Student Board of Control has planned well as a result of frequent meetings during the summer. The Athletic Council has sold double the number of season football tickets over last year. The football team, through its victory over Los Angeles City college, is definitely in the running for the league pennant. The newly formed league of schools from Utah and Idaho offers us competition for" a championship and will add zest to both basketball and football. The Ogden Community Weber College Concert and the Weber College Lecture Series are choice student privileges, and the schedules of dances, school concerts, operas, community plays, orations, and assemblies are most interesting.With a new campus, the challenge of a four-year school, planning a new campus, -a new football and basketball league, concerts, plays, socials, and activities, this year should bristle with activity. But above them all is the same grand old Weber spirit that makes a singing happy family with pride in doing, and joy in doing. Henry Aldous Dixon, President of Weber College. 'Perilous' Initiation Period Stresses Respect For Upper Classmen Green tops will blossom like weeds on the Weber college campus as Weber greenlings don traditional green beanies when freshman week gallops into action Monday, according to Oman Tracy, Sophomore class president, who states that newcomers to the college can expect the hottest indoctrination week in the history of the school. So that all will know just who sues By Sociology Class A new class, General Survey of Social Science, aimed at education through discussion of current topics, has been added to the curriculum of the Social Science department of Weber college. The class is under the direction of Dr. William D. Stratford. Political Issues All topics discussed in the class are selected by a majority vote of all members. At present time the class is studying "present political issues." Campaign speeches of presidential candidates, Thomas E. Dewey and Harry Truman are being discussed. Among class activities was a visit to President Truman during his arjpearance in Ogden. The class also saw Mr. Dewey during his Ogden stop yesterday. Future Topics Future topics which the class will discuss include Foreign Affairs, Juvenile Delinquency, and Marriage and Family Life. Six text books plus current magazines and newspapers will be used to aid discussions. New Instructor Named To Geology Section Assisting Mr. Buss in the Geology department this year is a new instructor, Mr. Hubert C. Lambert. Mr. Lambert graduated from Davis high and received his Bachelor of Science Degree and his Master of Science Degree at the University of Utah. He has spent some time at Cornel university and at the University of Utah towards his doctor's degree. Mr. Lambert has also had much practical experience. He was assistant Utah state engineer for seven years. He also worked for the Geological Society, of America on a transcontinentalGeo-phys-ics survey. Conjointly with this he worked for the Humbolt Oil company using magnatrometers and gravameters for determination of structure. Mr. Lambert was a private guide in the Grand Canyon area for one summer. His teaching experience includes three years at the University of Utah in the Geology department. Johanson Heads 'Chem' Appointment of Dr. Alva J. Johanson to direct the Weber college department of chemistry was announced recently by Merlin L. Stevenson, chairman of the physical science division. Dr. Johanson is filling the temporary vacancy left by Ralph S. Gray who is on leave of absence. has to obey and who is to be obeyed, Mr. Tracy outlined the following regulations which will be obeyed throughout the week. All freshmen must wear green beanies, and, for matters of identification, all sophomores will wear purple and white caps. Beanies can be purchased at the C. I. Front Doors Only Then there is a little rule for freshmen to follow which states that they can use only the front doors of all buildings. Mr. Tracy explained that the front doors are on the street side of all buildings. No freshmen may pass through side or back doors facing the quad. Signs will be posted on forbidden entrances and sophomores will keep a watchful eye on them. Tardiness by greenlings will not be excused or tolerated. Instructors have been asked by sophomore class officers to submit to them a list of all late, rude, and unmannerly students. All students reported will be dealt with at a planned time and in a planned way on Friday. Spare Moments? If you see a green cap carrying a large load of books, don't be alarmed. The sophomore class president -explained that it is only a freshman carrying a superior sophomore's books from class to class. Carrying trays and clearing tables in the cafeteria, doing sophomore's lessons, and anything else the sophs may dream up between now and then, are just a few additional responsibilities Weber freshmen must carry before they can matriculate into the Weber family, he said. Tuesday Tuesday will be known as "green Tuesday," and all greenlings will be required to clothe themselves entirely in green. Green beanies will, not be sufficient. At any appropriate time or place (when the freshie is reciting in history 'class, trying to eat, or running a race with the tardy bell) a sophomore may require a freshman to sing the school hymn. The hymn must be sung with due respect to both the school and the sophomore. Frosh Party On Monday the freshman class will handle the social reins of Weber college, when they will be host to the entire student body at a party to be held on the tennis courts of Lester park. All students are expected to attend. Old clothes are to be worn Friday, October 8, and any grcenling not complying with this rule will be much greener by the end of the day, Tracy said. All freshmen must attend the assembly and the football game. The final event of the week will be a sandbag race which will be held between halves of the football game Friday night. Committees Sophomore officers in charge of freshman week activities are: Oman Tracy, sophomore president; Iee Lalli, vice president, and Pat Casey, secretary. Dick Critehlow, temporary chairman of the freshman class is in charge of the party.

|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.|
