Sec. 562 P. R. ' 1 Volume 14 OGDEN, UTAH, MARCH 30, 1951 Number 12 VICTOR H Students Still Can Have Picture Taken Ashamed of your looks? According to an unconducted poll at Weber college, we have come to the conclusion that four out of five students probably are. This is the percentage of students who have not had their pictures taken for the 1951 Scribulus-Acorn. It's the only logical explanation for it. The pictures are taken free of charge with excellent photography equipment. May Use Last Year Pictures If you are a sophomore and have not yet had your picture taken for this year, better do so immediately. In order to fill up the space in the year book allotted for student pictures, it may be necessary to use the pictures from last year added to the few taken so far this year. This means that the same picture may appear two years in a row. Students are requested to make an appointment early next week. A schedule blank will be posted in the Gym building. Each student should sign for the time he desires to have his picture taken. The pictures will be taken in the Central building.The only thing required of you is to come at the designated time and place. Boys should wear suits with white shirts and ties. Girls should wear white blouses. If the pictures are good, you will be given the opportunity to buy them later in whatever size desired, and at minimum cost. ' r ' - l " - i ' l s: .

Tll6 'FlXGS As the huge basketball probe spreads to all corners of the United States, one question cornea to light more and more. Why did the players take the chance of throwing away promising careers, their respect and future, for the small amounts of money they were promised. Many writers believe that a good part of the solution lies in the fact that during the last few years college basketball has changed from amateur competition in a clean sport to almost professional standards. Instead of a sport it has become an enterprise. With the passing of a rule by the NCAA recently to eliminate college teams from playing their games in any building other than one completely owned by a school, a definite step towards cleaning up the game was made, but as long as the dollar sign is stressed in amateur sports there will be "fixes". The players are not going' to continue playing their hearts out for practically nothing while others are reaping large sums of money for their efforts. Appropriation Vill Come As Expected "Students and friends of Weber college have no need to worry about the fact that the State Legislature has not yet appropriated the funds to keep the school running for the two years," President H. Aldous Dixon said. "Even if they don't meet in a special session to make the appropriation, Governor Lee has promised me that the State Board of Examiners will see that the school is kept in operation," President Dixon continued. All the state supported schools ' in the state are in the same predicament, none of them have received their funds as yet but it is expected that the legislature will re-convene shortly to take care of such unfinished business. When you recover consciousness, smile at the interne. Remember, his job is to keep you in stitches.

|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.|
