OGDEJf, UTAH, FEBRUARY 11, Cellar Theatre Play February 21 Sharon Harris Love making, snake collecting, candy making, xylophone playing, eating cornflakes and watermelon together, and the operation of a printing press all go to make up the play "You Can't Take It With You", which will be presented in Cellar Theatre during the week starting February 21. The play, a three-act comedy, written by Moss Hart and George Kaufman was produced as a movie, and is the story of the Sycamore family. Each member of the family believes in doing things just as he pleases, and living his life in his own way without thought or care of the outside world. Mixed in, here and there, is a Russian ballet dancing teacher, a Russian princess, a drunken actress, an internal revenue man trying to collect back taxes of 24 years, and a colored maid and her boy friend. Altogether it appears to be quite a state of hilarity and confusion.

|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.|
