For further info on this matter read the editorial and the Board of Control Column on page o VOL. XXI NO. 23 OGDEN, UTAH JANUARY 31, 1958 SIGNPOST I; , WOE IS ME Pictured here in a dramatic scene from "Angel Street" are Richard Nealson, Sheri Christofferson and Kathleen Carter. The play is one that has had long runs in both London and New York City in the past and has featured such stellar stars as Ingrid Bergman and Vincent Price. By Karen Mikkelsen The Arena Theater production, "Angel Street," is scheduled to open Monday, February 3, for an invited audience only, and on Tuesday, February 4, for Weber College students and the community.The late nineteenth century "thriller" is about a man who is trying to drive his wife insane, and the production is packed with suspense from beginning to end. Stellar Background The play has had successful runs in both London and New York, starring Vincent Price, and was made into the movie, "Gaslight," starring Ingrid Bergman. The Weber College version features Sheri Christofferson and Richard Nealson playing the roles taken by Miss Bergman and Mr. Price, respectively. Supporting players are Deanna Parker, Kathleen Carter, John Van De Graaff, Dee Hill, and Gary Larsson. This composes one of the strongest casts to play in a College production; they all have had stage experience in either high school or college or both. Close Knit Director T. Leonard Rowley and co-director Francia Oborn made the comment that in addition, this is one of the most closely knit groups they have had the pleasure of working with. The "Angel Street" presentation offers an unusual setting in that the action takes place both inside and outside the room. Generally in Arena Theater productions, the action is confined to the immediate area. New Twist An additional new, experience is in store for the members of the invited audience that will see the 'curtain rise on the first night presentation on February 3. The innovation is a "theater party" following the performance. Guests will be invited backstage, refreshments will be served, and a guided tour of Weber College drama facilities will be conducted by the cast members. An extremely novel twist is being given to the tours, as the cast members will stay in character. Finds Students Are flews Readers Minneapolis (ACP) Initial data analysis from a recent survey by Associated Collegiate Press shows that more than three-fourths of the college students interviewed say they read a daily paper regularly. ACP asked the following question of a representative group of college men and women across the nation: "DO YOU SUBSCRIBE TO, OR READ REGULARLY, A DAILY' NEWSPAPER?" Complete results of the tabulation: Men Women Total Yes .7!) 78 78 No 21 22 22 Almost equal proportions of men and women read a daily newspaper, but college men hold a slight one percentage point lead over the women in their schools. One freshman coed at Wayne State University (Detroit, Mich.), qualified her "yes" answer by stating that, at least, she always reads the comics and the sports pages. A freshman at Tyler Junior College (Tyler, Texas), indicated that he subscribed to and read his home-town newspaper, and a senior at the Missouri School of Mines (Rolla, Mo.) added that, in addition to reading a morning and evening daily paper, he also reads several weekly newsmagazines.Lack of time was the major reason given for not reading a daily papei E-Men, O.T. Set Date For Big Dance Claiming another unprecedented first, Excelsior and Otyokwa social clubs have chosen Valentines Day to hold their annual Sweetheart Ball. (The dance has been a Weber tradition for many years and they claim the honor of initiating it.) Arrangements have been made for Neil Weight and his 14-piece band to furnish the music for the dancing couples in semi-formal attire. Royalty Hopefuls Ann Dunkley, Pat Behling, Margo Hedges, Nedra Thor-derson, Gaye Deamer, Richard Clark, Gary Larsson, Bruce Cole, Alan Reeder and Dick Welker make up the list of candidates who will vie for royalty honors. As in past years, a local theater has made arrangements for the pictures of these students to be sent to Hollywood. A winning boy and girl will be selected by two movie stars. The Valentine affair is slated for the Berthana Ballroom Feb. 14, at 0 p. m. Weber Studied By Accrediting Group; Results Pending Frosh Finalists Selected For Barker Extemp' Three Weber College coeds have been named as finalists and alternate for the Barker Extemporaneous Speaking Meet to be held in February. The girls are, finalists: Janet Eckersly and -Mickey Pemberton and alternate, Carolyn Heiner. These girls, who represent the Freshmen class, will compete for the honors against two sophomores who have not yet been chosen. Both girls have had much previous experience in the field of forensics and public speaking. The contest will be held at the Moench Auditorium at a date which will be announced later in February. A committee of the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools has spent two days at Weber College this week, conducting a routing accreditation survey, according to President William P. Miller. Chairman of the group, whose members came from four states, was Dr. Lloyd J. Elias, Junior college supervisor of the state department of public instruction, Olympia, Wash. The committee studied faculty qualifications, curriculum, objectives, student grades, facilities and other factors involved in rating a college. Invitational Visit The visitation came as a result of an invitation from Weber College. Committee members have returned to their respective institutions to write their conclusions on the various phases of the survey. Their reports will not be forwarded to Weber for several months, according to President Miller. The members of the committee were: Dr. R. A. Lyman, Idaho State College, Pocatello, Idaho; Dr. H. Smith Broadbent, Brigham Young University; Dr. Robert G. Dunbar, Montana State College, Bozeman, Mont.; Dr. J. Norman Coe, University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho; Professor James J.

The office of Secretary was vacated by Randy Rothy who has been called to serve in the Mission field for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The other offices are those of the representatives which are always chosen at this time of year. Only ISO ballots were counted in the final elections. The choices indicated by the ballots were: Secretary, Garn Lewis; First Frosh Representative, Allen Christensen; Second Frosh Representative, Ned Favero; and Sophomore Representative, Lynn Daines. s Bis Verbal Tourney On The Boards Participants in the Weber College high school speech tournament are expected to top the 3100 count of last year. The 22nd annual tournament will get underway Feb. 14 and 15 at Weber College. School will be dismissed at 10 a. in. the 14th. Students from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada will take part in debate, oratory and extemporaneous speaking. Dr. Leland Monson, general chairman, said this is the biggest event of the school year. Mr. Carl Green is assisting him. Teachers, students, townspeople, and personnel from the military bases will be judges. 'Silent' Generation? Critics Chilled Critics of the current student population will be forced to reevaluate their opinions regarding this "silent" generation in the light of a bulky testimonial to undergraduate articulateness released today by the U. S. National Student Association. All the existing policies and statements of principles of the USNSA have been compiled in a 113-page manuscript titled "Codification of Basic Policy Declarations, Resolutions, Special Resolutions and Mandates." During the five months since the 10th National Student Congress, the staff of USNSA, all of whom are students on a year's leave from their studies, has worked on the preparation of this codification. It was drawn up from the resolutions passed over the past ten years by delegates from colleges and universities affiliated with USNSA, which is the largest representative intercollegiate student organization in the country. Students have expressed themselves on subjects ranging from Inter-collegiate athletics to academic freedom, from federal scholarships to the problems of commuting students. While most of the resolutions reflect student re action to problems they face daily on the campus, such as student health, relations with faculty and administration and the effects of classroom over-crowding, other resolutions show the influence of the national and international programs of USNSA which have brought a new dimension to the American student community.

|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.|
