Elmer Bung-starter, cohort of the darling of the printer's ink trade, has endeavored to describe Fan-gic. We quote: "Elvira ' Fanglesnap, infamous literary personage, is a returned addition to the Weber college Lit-eri. The witty Miss Fanglesnap is a great favorite in journalistic circles, and is known as an unusually unreliable source of information. "Various puns and sparkling gems of wit are attributed to the caustic Fanglesnap. One of the most famous cliche's uttered by Fangie has convulsed the gentry for several years 'You tell 'em, wagon-wheel, you've been around.' Her most famous pun, spoken of Farrbetta Elcktrisity was the now famous 'You could tell she was an electrician's daughter, she had such low resistance.'

Clyde Parker gained the honor post in oratory, taking the second place award after competing in three preliminary rounds and one final competition. The McMinnville meet, sponsored by Linfield college, marked the first time he had competed in oratory. He was entered in a field of approximately 60 contestants. Takes Third Laurence Burton and Dee Ward Hock took third in a field of 65 in the contest's debate division, arguing on the national college debate question, ."Resolved: that a federal world government should be established." Burton won third place honors for the second consecutive year, having placed in this post last year debating with Douglas Moore. Dick Nilsson and Kaye Kilburn tied for fourth place debate honors. The tournament is sponsored an nually, and features forensic competition among western colleges and universities. The Weber speakers competed in the junior division, consisting of junior college and lower division senior college contestants, plus senior students who were relatively inexperienced in forensic activity. The showing made by the We-berites indicates they would stand a good chance in the coming national junior college speech competition, should the school vote funds for their entrance in the (Cont, on Page 3, Col. 1) ious masters. Her most famous portrait is found on the back wall of the Can-Can Club, Alcatraz Alley. There critics have scrawled their criticisms under the mustachioed Van Dyked Fanglesnap. This picture has been known to stir the emotions profoundly. Of course, there are those who, of the horsy set, have inscribed rather racy observations."Miss Fanglesnap is a charming, reddish blonde brunnette. She puts the Burma Road to shame with the contours in her terrain. Her hair is worn in the latest fashions imported from Zamboanga stylists. Her face is hard to describe. Vertically slanted eyes, with unusual double pupils, are hard for her to make behave 'Never let your right eye know what your left is doing,' is Fangies' motto. Her chin is falcate. Her brow is immense, due to her Mongolian ancestry. She 'Was Born! "Miss Fanglesnap was born on a perverted brain wave, almost as the Venus of yore. These circumstances of her birth made strong men faint and weak women stagger. The journalistic world was jubilant. An heiress had come to take the place of Typo and Etaoin (Cont. on Page 2, Col. 4) Friday, March 5, 1948 - f" Clyde Parker: he wins second in oratory at the McMinnville speech meet. Play Trials March 10 Tryouts for the final Community Theater-Weber college play of the year, "Christopher Blake," will take place Wednesday, March 10, at 7:30 p. m. in room M-406, John Kelly, director, announced recently. The Moss Hart drama is scheduled for April 29-May 1, Mr. Kelly said. There are 45 speaking parts in the play, calling for an unusual number of character actors. It uses ten sets. Mr. Kelly anticipates difficulty in casting the lead part, which is that of a 12-year old boy. Other principle characters include his father and mother. "While these three characters comprise the main parts, there are a large number of excellent small character parts," Mr. Kelly stated, urging that anyone interested should be present at the March 10 tryouts. The play calls for actors to take the parts of General MacArthur, General Eisenhower, Admiral Nlm-itz, and President Truman, Mr. Kelly said. Copies of "Christopher Blake" are now available at the Weber college and Carnegie free libraries for study by those interested in trying out for parts. Rehearsals are now proceeding for the second of this year's Community Theater productions, "The Silver Cord." Originally scheduled for Feb. 26-28, the drama was postponed to March 25-27. Adviser List Is Mailed A list of advisers classified under major fields was mailed to all prospective spring quarter Weber students. Students will indicate their choice of adviser on the sheet, and this choice will be complied with as lar as possible, said Dr. William Stratford, dean of men. A ' f ( V "rf'i .v J L.

Operating budget for Associated Men Students will be reduced to $564 if a plan proposed by treasurer Bert Corkey is adopted by the W. C. board of control. The cut is proposed for the purpose of straighteninng out the Weber budget. II would require AMS to make receipts of $100. The AMS budget was originally set at $1300, but a five percent cut brought this total down to $1261. No action was taken on Corkey's plan, as a quorum was not present at the last board of control meeting.

|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.|
