IT'S SIGNPOST Janus looks both ways! This issue of Signpost is like the old Roman god it has two faces. One is looking at the fut-ture, at several hundred high school graduates. It is putting on its best "come-hither" smile and hoping they'll be impressed with Weber and what it stands for. The other sees the past, the present Weber students who will soon either leave the old "alma mammy" for good or will be ready for the sophomore year. And so, don't be surprised, We-berites, if some of the stories sound too "back-slappy." This is the one issue each year in which we thump it pretty resoundingly. Besides, prospective Weberite, we think we've got something here to thump it for. How about dropping around next fall and finding out!

WELCOME TO WEBER A tpical scene from "Oriental Magic". Standing left to right, Joyce Mitchell and Gloria Tierce; seated, Joan Crawford and Jack Madsen. Message From The President To the members of the graduating classes of the high schools in the Weber College area, I extend the best wishes of the members of the "Weber College Family". Graduation from high school is an important day in a student's life. Another time is the day he decides to enter college in order to continue his general education on a higher level, or to perfect his skill in trade or a profession. The varied courses of instruction offered at Weber College are designed to meet the individual needs of all the youth of this area, because such courses lead not only to advanced study in the privileged professions and occupations, but also to competency in the semi-professions and skilled trades offered by the terminal division. The academic credits of Weber College are accepted at all accredited colleges and universities in the nation. Look Magazine, two years ago, rated Weber as one of the top fifteen junior colleges in the United States. The Weber College faculty is competent and cooperative. Many of our departmental members have gained national recognition in their respective fields. We have attempted at Weber not to lose the importantstudent-professor relationship which should ideally be one of close personal contact. Our college is small enough to offer students individual attention and yet large enough to offer the same activities larger colleges and universities do. Our athletic program is wide in scope. Our football teams play some of the finest junior college teams in the nation, the basketball squad has gained national recognition, and our debate teams hold the na tional championship. Weber College strives to provide its stu dents with the opportunity to participate in every worthwhile collegiate activity; the size of the student body increases an individual's opportunity for leadership. Every year the record of our rapidly growing institution is just a little better than the previous year. This is the reason the year 1950 is to be the best in our history. Yon will find our student body friendly. Many of the graduates of your high school are already enrolled at our institution, and the problem of getting acquainted is not a major one. In closing, I again extend to you our best wishes upon your graduation from high school and invite you to continue your education at Weber College. Sincerely, Henry Aldous Dixon President, Weber College Phi Rho Pi Prize Goes on Block Today in Denver Eight Weber college students left Tuesday to participate in the National Phi Rho Pi forensic tournament in Denver, Colorado.

|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.|
