r Volume XV I i1 4 . JS 1 ' , . N ? i, ' rfiC f y- Weber College has the latest things when it comes to education as you can see by these pretty maids, Jeanette Ripplinger, Carmen Petty, Gay Jones, and Barbara Hampton.

'Operation Turkey' Is AMS Project For Needy Families for Thanksgiving This year for the first time in recent history the Associated Men are forming thirty groups of fifteen each to fill Thanksgiving baskets for poor families. The names of the families will be obtained through the city and county welfare offices. The fifteen men assigned to each group will contribute enough to make a good Thanksgiving dinner for a family'' which otherwise would not have such. The Home Economics Department has offered to make a list of the foods essential for a family's Thanksgiving dinner with enough food left over for perhaps a few days' supply. Each Man Contributes Each man in the day school will receive a phone call or will be contacted at school in the next few days. Each will be a member of Alpha, Beta, or other such designated group of fifteen. The contribution from each man will be a low figure so that nobody will be hurt financially. This will help make Thanksgiving have more than just a commercial meaning, and will add the true spirit of Thanksgiving to the men who participate. It is hoped that 98 of the men in the student body ' will assist in Operation Turkey. On Tourist Agenda Geodiscipulus' Fall banquet will be held Saturday, November 24, at the Mansion House.

Enticing View Sunday, the 17 members and guests piled into the truck and bounced out to Hatch point on the Colorado. The view below looked so enticing that the group drove back to Monticello and then down Indian Creek to the bottom of Hatch Point. A rich sunset deepened the colors of nearly one thousand-foot red sandstone cliffs, while long shadows gradually swallowed up the light inside the canyon. Hearty Eaters Supper that night spaghetti and meatballs, was forced down by the tub-fulls until people were mumbling "Noodles" during their sleep, and everyone had a rather limp appearance the next morning.

|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.|
