No Curtains No Sweat!! If anyone is wondering why 0. T. didn't close the curtains at their assembly last week, here's the dope. They couldn't!! Someone had placed padlocks on the metal rings holding the curtain in such a manner that they couldn't be drawn. Thus the squaws had to change their scenery in full view of the audience who were, for the most part, ignorant of what was happening on stage. To add insult, the same crew (denotes sailors doesn't it?) had removed the large trap door in the middle of the stage making it extremely difficult for Barbara Wadman and her dancers to perform with a peace of mind. Even with these shortcomings it was a good assembly, a tribute to the plucky squaws who recovered readily. Fun Time on A gigantic student-body party, featuring roller skating at the Ber-thana, dancing at the ballroom, swimming at the gym and eating in the gym lounge, will begin tonight at 8:00. Roller skating will start at S and last until 9:30. Swimming starts at S also but will last until 10:30 to give the skaters a chance to swim. Dancing will begin at 10:30 continuing until 12. This "Fun Night" is being sponsored by AMS and the Social committee. Chairmen are Ross Dredge and Lois East. At 8 Tonight Joen England This Swabbie, short on stature but long on looks, is quite un- pretentious.

Phoenix has done it again. Top 1 SHa4tt By Kay Giles The annual Geology Field Trip to Bryce and Zion Parks will take place Friday, May 4, when 75 adventure-hungry students and their faculty wardens embark for southern Utah. This year's trip has many promising aspects as Walter Buss has made plans to take his proteges to Grand Canyon if arrangements can be made. Also in store for his travelers are invigorating hikes straight up Lady Mountain using only one hand on the hook lines of course. For the sit-weary student softened by the easy college life, the jaunt to Angel's Landing may be more appealing. No trip would be worth mentioning however; without some reference to the meals fixed expertly by some fellow travelers who have gained their knowledge by watching Joyce Whipple cleverly scooping TUB soup onto eagerly waiting trays. Last but not least is the wonderful facilities available for the tourists who, although there are many trees available, still have to get up early. Good luck tripsters! Your bravery and initiative is to be admired. One last word before you leave; Mr. Buss has a list of articles for the students to take and he would like to remind you to bring the essentials; water guns, knives, hatchets, etc. show them the cooperation that his government has recevied. Humphreys also added, "Students should now be giving considerable thought to the sophomore class elections' that will be held next week." "Class officers are also a part of Board of Control, and so it is essential that capable people be elected," said this year's student body president.

|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.|
