Dixon. A new era arrives at Weber with the building of a new campus, with the official ceremonies set for today.

Monson, head of Weber College Humanities division, claims to be the largest high school forensic tournament in the nation held at the college last weekend were some 700 prep students from 26 intermountain high schools. Three local high schools, Davis, Ogden and Weber, ranked high in the sixteenth annual two-day tourney which had to have use of the For a Castle in the Air-A Foundation Closer, rjerhans. to the true spirit ot today's great occa sion than anything Signpost could say is the following passage from Henry Thoreau's Walden. So to President Dixon, who today sees his dream castle underway, and to all those many people, past and present, who have worked hard for this ideal of a new school for this part of Utah, Signpost dedicates this paragraph : I learned this, at least, by my experiment : that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary ; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favour in a more liberal sense and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings. In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness. If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Weber's Great Story Upon the resignation of Principal Louis Moench, the Board of Educa tion of the L.D.S. Church appointed David O. McKay to fill the vacancy. Under his direction the school entered an era of rapid development. In the fall of 1902 a new department in Domestic Art was added. The enrollment continued to in crease until it was necessary to en large the building to accomodate more pupils. This work of rebuild ing and enlarging was finished in 1907. At the same time two new courses were added, one in domestic science and one in mechanical arts. In 1908 Principal McKay resigned in order to give more attention to his duties as an Apostle to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. In 1908 Wilford M. McKendrick became Principal and served in that capacity for two years. During the fall of 1908, the name of the school was changed from Weber Stake Academy to Weber Academy. ', Barker Contest In 1910 William W. Henderson became Principal and headed the institution until 1914. James L. Barker succeeded W. W. Henderson as Principal in 1914. Principal Barker initiated the competition for the Barker Extemp Contest, and during his Presidency a Public Service Bureau was organized, thereby making it possible to furnish complete programs to churches, clubs and other public meetings.

|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.|
