Board OSCays Thought Boxes Because students have no way of making suggestions to the Board of Control without attending BOC's weekly meeting, the Board has voted to put suggestion boxes in the halls. The suggestion boxes will give students the opportunity of letting Weber's officers know how they can best fulfill the needs of the studentbody. In other action, the Board recommended to the Awards Committee that the outstanding sophomores of this year be given medals or trophies, and that the meritorious sophomores receive block 'W pins. Under the Board's recommendation, the outstanding Freshmen also would be awarded block 'W pins, and the meritorious Freshmen would receive certificates.Stands Ready For Paper Use A new method of Signpost distribution will take affect as of the first issue of winter quarter, according to Gary Olsen, business manager. Because of a $48.07 appropriation by the Board of Control last quarter, four Signpost distribution stands were constructed. They will be placed in vital positions on campus. One will be put in the TUB, one in building one, building three and the Technical Education building.The new stands were created to answer a demand made necessary by the littering of the halls with the Signpost during distribution. Opening of doors would cause the paper to blow throughout the hall. "We hope to solve this problem now," Mr. Olsen said. This is the second change made by Signpost this year. Also new is the weekly schedule the paper now offers. CALENDAR For Week of Jan. 15-22 Jan. 1" Barker Contest Orchid Ball Basketball, Weber at Ricks. Jan. 20 Voyage to the Moon.

Miss Wright mhers 5 name inscribed on a permanent trophy and the winning speakers will receive first and second place medals. Competing sophomores are John Hale and Bob Wood. Freshmen in the finals are Frank Smith and Patti Meikle. This contest was instituted in the days when Weber College belonged to the church and was called Weber Academy. At that time the principal of Weber Academy was a man by the name of James Barker. He believed that to be really educated a man must be able to organize his thoughts and present them on his feet. With this idea in mind he instituted an extemporaneous speaking contest and provided a trophy for the winning class. During his administration all students were required to make at least one speech before the entire student-body. At times this meant making an announcement and at others it meant a HI or 15 minute speech. Since that time one trophy with the names of the winning classes has been filled and another was purchased and the contest was continued in the memory of Principal Barker. The Sophomore class has won approximately sixty-five percent of the contest. Thatcher Allred, head of the Theater Arts Department, feels that this greater number of wins by the sophomore class can be attributed to an improvement in their education over their Freshman year.

|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.|
