Fine Art of Courtship Intrigues Ei By Tom Clark Signpost Staff Writer The process of courtship may, for purposes of literary discription, be divided into three parts: the initial contact, the skirmishes, and " the snare. In the initial contact, that is, the very first time a boy meets a girl, the eyes play the most important role. A boy looks at a girl's eyes and ZIP ... the spark is struck. After the initial contact the problem arises of how to get a date with this prospective light of life. This usually proves to be a minor task to the modern Lothario. Impending Skirmishes Careful though should be given to the impending skirmishes, re I i - " I 1 t J I Ba:.ti- WIA officers, Jill Bateman, vice-president; Pat Berger, president; Suzanne Stock, secretary, and Cheryl Parry and Ruth Walsh, intramural officers, make plans for WIA banquet. EBER OGDEN, No. 24 Vol. 1 Concert Series Presents Violin Virtuoso Famous violin virtuoso David Abel will appear Wednesday, April 27, in the Ogden High auditorium. This will be the last program to be held in connection with the Community Concert Series this season. Students and faculty members will be admitted free with activity cards. Critics have called Abel "a young master of musical craft," "a violinist of tremendous artistry," and "first and foremost, a musician." His "dashing command of violin traceries and trickeries" is backed by a musical judgment and poetic insight astounding in an artist but twenty-four. He has quickly become established as one of the most superbly gifted artists of his generation. ferred to by the younger set as "dates." One should make up his mind early in the game whether or not the objective is marriage material. It is obvious that different methods of attack should be employed i for marriageables and non-marriage-1 ables. Attack on the non-marriage-! able should include flankings of gal- lantry and chivalry with a main ; battery of gaiety, wit, and humor, followed closely by suavety and sophistication. Such a formidable attack, with a : final surge in the form of effuse protestations of love will surely net a date to the spring formal. The j attack on marriageables is not so : much an attack as it is retreat. Move : back to a vantage point and let your-i self be ambushed. In this type of ! maneuver, be yourself !

Any attempt to extradite oneself is sheer folly and is invariably met with frustration. The snare is the final act in the ballet of courtship. In it all the loose ends are tied up. Final Surrender Setting a date is the final act of surrender. All of the showers, announcements, invitations, bachelor parties, and shopping sprees are the occupation force that prevent any further uprising. The actual ceremony itself is merely the formal handing over of the sword. The only unfortunate thing in the whole battle is that the groom doesn't realize he is the victim until he sells his convertible to pay for the honeymoon and the forthcoming occupant of the booties his comfort in stress is knitting.

|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.|
