Section 562, P. L. & R., Permit 23e Cellar Series! Bows Out With Laugh By Thayne K. Harris "George and Margaret", a rollicking, fast-moving comedy, opened Monday night as the season's final production in the Cellar Theater. The play, written by Gerald Savory, has been well accepted by audiences of Weber students and Ogden townspeople who soon discover that they have absolutely nothing to do for two hours except laugh. The cast consists of experienced student actors from the Theater Workshop, a new dramatic group on the campus, organized this year under the direction of Mr. John G. Kelly. Don Soelberg portrays Malcolm, the absent-minded father of anot-very-average, but most interesting, family. Alice, the worrisome, over-indulgent mother is played by La Rue Daniel. Guardian of the morals of the family is the eldest son, puritanical Scoutmaster Claude, in the person of Jay Jensen, whose life is rigidly governed by convention,' and who ultimately runs off and marries Gladys, the maid, played by Joanne Nelson. Completing the family group are fun-loving, down-to-earth Dudley, portrayed by Bruce Bushell and Pat Jensen in the role of the lovely, young daughter, Frankie. Dale McLane takes the part' of Roger, likeable friend of Dudley, whose two week's visit culminates in his engagement to Frankie, and Phyllis Parker is the not very bright replacement as the family maid with the rather unusual name, Beer. The Cellar Theater presents drama in the arena style in the cellar of the Bertha Eccles Hall with a small audience surrounding the acting area and- in close proximity to the actors themselves. The Theater Workshop is believed to be the first group in the state to present this form of drama, and their efforts have made it very popular in the community. "George and Margaret" balances the "cellar" season very well, the first production having been another comedy, "Nothing But the Truth", and last quarter's offering a murder mystery, "Night Must Fall'. Besides the cellar plays, the Theater Workshop iintroduced an other novel type of drama in this area. During Fall quarter they presented a farce, Box and Cox" twelve times on the streets of Og den, calling themselves the "Vaga bond Players". After each performance they loaded their scenery onto a truck, moved to another loca tion, and within fifteen minutes had begun the show all over again Plans are under way for one of these traveling productions later in the spring. "George and Margaret" will continue tonight and tomorrow night, each performance beginning at 8:15 p. m. B. Y. U .

Vol. 12 Friday, April 1, 1949 No. 14 Dick Koster To Fill Business Manager Post During the Spring Quarter Dick Koster defeated ' Arvin Shreeve in the final election on March 22, to become business manager for the Spring quarter. The election was necessary m or der to fill the vacancy left by Alan Johnson when he resigned to accept an assignment as missionary for the LDS church. The same situation arose last year when Larry Williamson resigned for the same reason and Paul Davis was chosen to replace him. As business manager, it will be Dick's responsibility to supervise the advertising of all student body functions and the sales and distribution of tickets to these functions and to cooperate with the student body treasurer to see that all student body funds collected under his supervision are properly deposited with the Weber College Treasurer. "It is indeed a privilege to have been elected to represent the student body as business manager", Dick stated. "Alan has done a good job and I intend to maintain the efficiency and diligence that he has shown and which the job demands."

|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.|
