The editors of Signpost are accepting applications for positions on the paper. New reporters will be on the staff for the remainder of spring quarter and next year. Those interested contact Patti Meikle, Signpost editor, and Mr. Evans, advisor. EDITOR IS MYSTERY Outstanding Person Featured Lindsey Hansen, one of the good looking sophomores, quietly tends to his business at school each day and carries a major burden. He can tell you that it is no easy task to edit a junior college yearbook. The entire staff depends on his thoughtful ideas and his creative endeavors. Graduating from Ogden High School, Lindsey studies at the University of Utah during his fresliman year. Because of the necessity of spending hundreds of hours of planning, arranging and designing the future yearbook, Lindsey remains independent.Still, with his constant yearbook activity, he manages to appear on the highest honor roll in scholastic achievement. Outstanding grades tell a story of success by 'themselves. Tins is Lindsey's tost year at Weber College. Majoring in commercial art, he is presently taking several art classes. This is one of the stepping blocks he mastered to gain his position on the Acorn staff. "We expect the yearbook to be the very finest production of our ability," said Lindsey. "The staff present several outstanding L.D. and Phoenix did the usual, for them at least, by holding the top spots on the scholarship trophy last quarter. According to information released from Dr. Stratford's office and Mrs. Gregory's Office the Phoenix scholars and the L.D. brains led their rivals with a 2.66 and 3.06 respectively. Both clubs have held the top position on the Board of Control appropriated plaque since its origin in 1958. Sigma Delta Pi and T.K. were both a whisper off the honors. They both trailed by one one hundredth of a point, Sigma with a 2.65 and T.K. with a 3.05. Sharmea held a 2.93 while Excelsior and O.T. followed the pack with a 2.50 and a 2.56 in that order. VICTIM has chosen as its goal meritous recognition and I suspect the quality of our book will meet the rigid specifications."Presently he is working at Salt . !f Lindsey Hansen is 'Acorn' editor. LJ. Phoenix Cop Trophy 14" . To Present Assembles At Local School By Eloise McQuown Signpost Staff Writer The college choir, under the direction of Glenn L. Hanson, plan a variety of activities for this quarter.Today the members are journeying to Davis High School to present an assembly. April 22, will see the choir presenting assemblies at Bear River and Logan High Schools. April 23, the group will entertain the State Democratic Convention at the "Terrace" in Salt Lake City. Guest Speaker Presidential candidate, Lyndon Johnson will be the guest speaker. Finally, the choir will sing at Graduation exercises on June 2. Early Practices Practicing 4 days a week and at 7 a.m. on Tuesdays, keeps the students busy, but their efforts are rewarded when the group sings as well as they did for the National Debate Fraternity, Phi Rho Pi. Mr. Hanson reports that plans are in progress for a week-end tour in the near future. our Represent Weber At U. II Gathering By Joani Swanke Signpost Staff Writer Four Weber College students have returned from Berkeley, California, where they attended the tenth annual session of the Model United Nations. The four representatives were Kenneth Tomlinson, Dee Jacobson, Dennis Dahl, and Bill Furlong. They represented the country of Honduras in the Model U.N. Assembly. Took Work Serious "These young men were dedicated, conscientious, and took their work seriously, while representing Weber College with distinction," Dr. Bale-man, advisor to the group, said. Eighty-three schools from the Western and Pacific states participated in the session, which commenced last Wednesday and ended Saturday. How it Works The Model United Nations works exactly like the actual United Nations, with a general assembly, councils, and committees. Its constitution parallels that of the United Nations. The Model U. N. session next year will be held in Eugene, Oregon. Lake Art Company, traveling back and forth each day. So it is because of his outstanding contribution to Weber that Lindsey was chosen as an example of the typical hard working student who seldom is recognized for his efforts.

|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.|
