f Affords Opportunity elivinq Fun At W. C. 7 Volume XV Weber College, Ogden, Utah, October 5, 1951 Number 1 Homecoming Grass With Of R - w Versatile W.C. Faculty Still in Campus Scrap Apparently the theme for Weber College faculty is: "If they won't give us the money to buy a new campus, we'll build one by hand!" Since they don't belong to any carpenters Union, that theme might soon become a reality. Although Weber's brain machinists are toting probably more Ph D's and other degrees than any other institution of its size, not one faculty member is too proud to grab hold of a shovel and move dirt around with the fury of an overgrown gopher. In the past, when work was to be done on the new grounds, the teachers have pitched in and furnished an ample share of the needed man power. Students will find that working with the faculty can be a lot of fun, while working against "Old Eagle Eyes" will accomplish nothing. Some regard the "Master" as a brutal slave driver who is trying to burn out young minds, getting a thrill from seeing the fire in the eyes of students who studied half the night. Actually Weber's teaching staff is about as informal as can be found anywhere. Always there is the desire to help. Some times a teacher will not be able to stop immediately to help a student but many more times he is willing to put other things aside and make time for the needed assistance. ' Certainly, Weber College has a great teaching team this year and with a little help from the state finance and Local Board 38, Weber College will climb well along in the roll of fine institutions. Calling signals for this great new play will be Dr. Henry Aldous Dixon, who has already carried the ball through some tough skirmishes. There's enough work to go around though, even after the first platoon is finished and it will take cooperation from every one enrolled this year to keep the game going. Support Weber for yourself and its own self and make it a point to get acquainted with this man Dixon who can deal with the most powerful men known and yet lay aside his work anytime to talk to anyone anxious to learn.

Dramatic Programs Now on Docket For Coming Year A full season's dramatic program has been announced by Thatcher Allred and John Kelly. First on the calendar is "The Traitor" by Herman Wouk. This play is an impressive Broadway success and has been used by University and Community Theatres.The theme of the play is very timely. A young and brilliant atomic scientist who is deeply concerned over the empending fate of world society and has come to believe that sharing vital secrets would eliminate suspicion and rivalry between nations, plans to give important atomic secrets from his ' own laboratory to communist agents. He finds, however, the communists do not intend to use the information for the good he intended but to further dominate other nations. The plot deals with his subsequent efforts to withhold the information, save his own life and expose the communist agents to Navy Intelligence. Allred Direction "The Traitor" will be presented by Community Theatre under the direction of Thatcher Allred. A cast is now being chosen and presentation of the play has been scheduled for the week of November 5. ' 'f, i Portraying Natures! Role? Hill A sample of the domesticity and meekness of Weber's faculty is shown above as four representatives prepare breakfast for their associates. Students will know now that "their bark is worse than their bite!"

Throughout the years we have-f maintained our Wildcat traditions We look forward to continuance of these traditions and the formation of new ones. You will find endless opportunities at Weber college for leadership in all fields. Your first year will be the hardest getting to "know the ropes," but cooperation and friendliness of all students will be at your assistance. Enhance Advantages We urge you to take wholehearted advantage of the educational cultural, athletic, and social opportunities which will be offered. By doing so, this year at Weber will remain in your hearts for many years to come. During the year you will be asked to do many things that will not only aid in building a better "you" but it will aid the school that we all love so dearly. "Our kingdom by the hill" will meet the dreams of coming generations, and only by your help will the new campus be completed. Meet President Dixon We boast at Weber one of the finest men possible at .the helm of our great school. In President Henry A. Dixon, the ever popular leader of W.

Hoping you'll help us out this year, I 'remain, Fred Ball, 1951-52 Student Body President. Two Qualified Ladies To Enlarge Home Ec. Home economics division has made two changes in the staff for the fall quarter according to Dr. H. A. Dixon. Melba Judge Lehner will head the new home economics division after serving as an instructor in the division since 1946. She said she will offer a class in parent-child cooperation where mothers and children will meet and discuss problems. She also intends to extend the classes to include those which might interest male students. Mrs. Lehner received her degree at Utah State Agricultural College and has done post graduate work at the University of California and at the A.C. New Addition Lucille Johnson will enter the division as a new instructor. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in home economics at USAC in 1936. She has served as project service advisor for the Public Housing authority in San Diego. She also worked for the United Mine Workers of America Welfare and retirement fund. Shaw Chorale Group Presents Concert Saturday, Oct. 13 Robert Lawson Shaw, with his Chorale Concert orchestra, will entertain the people of Ogden in the first Community concert of the year, on October 13, at eight-fifteen p.m. at the Ogden High school auditorium.Mr. Shaw is a native of California, and had plans of becoming a minister, as his father, the Rev. Shirley R. Shaw, was. His mother is a well-known soloist and his sister, Hollace Shaw, is a coloratura soprano currently appearing in Broadway musicals and on the radio. Big Opportunity Mr. Shaw probably would have followed his plan to become a minister had it not been for Fred Waring who came to Hollywood to make the movie "Varsity Show," which was filmed on the campus of the college Shaw was attending. Waring was so impressed with Shaw, after seeing him work with the glee club, which had a small bit in the picture, that he gave him a job directing the Waring glee club in 1938, which soon became an outstanding feature of the Waring radio show. In his spare time Shaw led amateur singing groups in concerts of sacred music on the radio and in performance in New York. Organizes Choirs His first group, the Chapel Choir, was formed in the summer of 1941. In November of that year he organized the now-famous Collegiate Chorale. The assembly will be on Thursday, October 11, at 11:00 a.m. in the college aduitorium and will provide an enjoyable program to both students and alumni. Congratulations to the Homecoming committees for arranging for a holiday from school on Friday the 12th. Immediately following the assembly, which will end at 12:00 p.m., will be a band concert in the city hall park. This concert will feature the Weber College band under the direction of Mr. Delman Dickson. Novel "Painting Contest" Too Another important homecoming event, that replaces the usual parade of floats from social clubs, will be a car-painting contest with 35 dollars in prize-money. First prize of 15 dollars goes to the club with best painted car and 10 dollars for the best unaffiliated entry. All clubs are to enter at least four cars, and judging will be on conformity to homecoming theme, "Digging In", originality, and appearance. All cars are to be entered in the Gymnasium lobby between 12:45 and 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday. When the entries are made arrangements will be made to get paint and other decorations. The car judging will be on Friday at 7:00 p. m. Contestants must be there promptly, as the painted monsters are to follow the homecoming queen to the game at the city stadium at 8:00 P. m- Friday evening the Weber Wildcats will meet the Carroll College team from Montana, in the Ogden stadium. The game promises to be a thriller as both teams so far are undefeated. Finale Is Homecoming Dance Following the game, there will be a dance at the Weber college ballroom, open to both alumni and students. Take this chance to become acquainted with the alumni and new students and support all activities of Homecoming. Gl Checks Will Be Late this Month Veterans planning to take education or training under the GI Bill this fall should have sufficient funds of their own to tide them over possibly until early December according to E. A. Littlefield, manager of the Veterans Administration Regional Office in Salt Lake. Mr. Littlefield said some checks might be delayed until December 10. He pointed out three causes for the delays. First, decreased VA personnel; second, increased GI enrollments, and third, necessity for completing last minute applications for training that came in just ahead of the Cut-off date in July. Littlefield emphasized that the checks when they are received will include payments due from the time that the veteran started his classes and that none of the suspended operations will in any way "deprive veterans of their rigths to GI Bill training. Cellar Theatre Active Cellar Theatre has chosen a first play, "The Golden Goose", for presentation the week of December 3. Cellar Theatre plays are presented by Theatre Workshop and organized as a class production under Mr. Kelly.

|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.|
