Four-year College Convinced that a four-year Weber college is a necessity for Weber county, both legislators are expected to aid the "greater Weber college" drive in the legislative body. Dr. Young and Mrs. Larsen have emphasized that their candidacy was not sponsored by the college. Requests by personal friends outside of the college were responsible, they stated. Educational Experience Dr. Young, who had previously planned to attend Cornell university or work in malaria control in South America, decided to run for the legislative post because of the extensive educational advantages offered by the legislative experience. He will be on leave of absence from the college while the legislature is in session. Although education is his chief concern, Dr. Young states that he is interested in conservation measures for the protection of soil, wildlife, and health. In the latter bracket he is particularly interested in legislation furthering fly and mosquito control, sewage disposal and other sanitary measures with the whole aim being to conserve health.

Reclamation Another line that Mr. Larsen will be active in will be reclamation and water development. "Water is the biggest stumbling block to progress in Utah," he stated, adding that he is particularly interested in projects for development of Green river and Colorado river water in Utah. Special projects in which he is interested include a new dam at magpie, two dams on Weber river, and improved culinary watersupplies.

The film expalins the formation of the United Nations Atomic Energy commission, and the proposals for the international control of atomic energy as submitted by the USA and Russia. Answers Questions The film strip that is to be shown will answer many of the problems that students of international affairs at Weber college have on this question. All interested students at Weber college are invited to attend and take part in the IRS meetings. The next meeting will take place Monday, November 22. The comedy, which has an under lying tragic motif, tells the story of six soldiers who are confined to a convelescent ward in a temporary British hospital somewhere in Southeast Asia command. The attempt of five of these men to win the friendship of the sixth, who is the Scotchman Lachlen, played by Lew Cook, is carried on throughout the play. Lachlen's superstitious attitude toward anyone who would give anything away brings about conflict which is settled only at the end of the play. Good Intentions His extreme independence of spirit nearly wrecks the good intentions of those who want to make him happy, but at last particularly after he falls in love with the nurse, Margaret, played by Carolynn Glasmann, he learns the great lesson of love for his neighbor. Chief antagonist toward Lachlen is the part of Yank, played toy Laurence Burton. Other members of the cast include Don E. Soelberg, the orderly; Don E. Jones, Digger; Newell Remington, Kiwi; Keith Hilton, Blossom; Bruce Bushell, Tommy, and Don C. Lincord, Colonel. The play will be directed by John Kelly with Lowell Manfull as assistant director. The community theatre, which is producing these plays, is a partnership between the college student body and Ogden community theatre organization.

|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.|
