An annual event, this year's bouts will be staged in the East Ogden Stake House at 2th and Taylor. Bell time is set at 8:00 p. m. Boxing and wrestling bouts between representatives of the different social clubs on campus will make up most of the program. The Smoker has changed somewhat from last year when challengers were also procured from the Industrial School and other sources. Sponsorship of the AAU was withdrawn after last year's bouts, making it strictly a school afafir. This was supposedly done on the idea that "Weber College doesn't support the AAU, so the AAU won't support the AAU." Challenges are being issued now, but no definite bouts have been set according to Alpha Rho's athletic manager, Bill McCafferty. The biggest attraction of the evening will be a "battle royal."

They joined with the international relations group to hear the ambassador who came from Denver to explain the British situation. Paul Thatcher, city attorney, gave a brief summary of the history of the Suez Canal explaining that the Egyptains, by seizing the Suez had violated a treaty which would have expired in twelve years.

|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.|
