U. S. Pontage PAID Hulk Kate Permit No. 479 Ogden, Utah u u Slf 1 I5y Gary llloclnett The Wobor College Wildcats and Poise Junior College Proncos meet tonight at 8 p. m. ill an ICAC football encounter termed the "big one" for both teams. Weber will attempt to break a 12-year jinx during which it has never defeated the Broncos on the gridiron. Boise has won the ICAC championship all 12 seasons and expect to make it No. 13 tonight. Outweigh Wildcats The Broncos will outweigh Weber both in the line and the backtield. Both teams will be looking for their third win of the 19,r)S season. Weber opened the season with a 27-6 win over Phoenix, and last week dropped Eastern Arizona State Junior College 21-13. Boise has looked very impressive in games thus far. The Idaho school eleven walloped Carbon College 51-0 in its first game, and last week blanked Oakland College of California, 40-0. Weber came up with four injuries in last week's encounter, although all but one will be ready for action tonight. Ben Udy, 190-pound center, will be the only doubtful starter. Udy re-injured his knee last week, and the knee is not responding to treatments, said Coach Wally Nalder. Jack Kerivan, Brent Jorgansen and Dave Ilanulov were aiso hurt in tne iiastern Arl- zona game, but are reported improved and will see service tonight. Boise will run from the single-wing formation with a balanced line. The Bronco line is big, rugged and tackles hard. Its backfield is fast and shifty. Starting Lineup Probable starting lineup for Weber will be Brent Hancock, quarterback; Curtis Wise and Norris Dickson, backfield, and Fred Van Dyke, fullback. On the forward line for the Wildcats will be Dennis Dahl, center; Lynn Foxley and Lynn Ilutehins, guards; Louis Carter and Harry Smith, tackles, and Dave Handley and Le-Roy Overstreet, ends. Vol. XXI WEBER COLLEGE OGDEN, UTAH No. 31 October 3, 1958 WEBER'S HOPE FOR TONIGHT Sports fans can expect much of this kind of action when the Weber Cats claw at the Boise Broncs in tonight's encounter. Here cagey halfback, Norris Dickson displays the kind of push that led the Cats to victory last week. Giving assistance to Norris is Wendell Durand. Both boys will likely be in on most of the activity at Weber Stadium tonight. Debate Teams Yield That Forward Look The Weber College Debating Team started the year off with a real bang. At the first meeting of the new squad a debate was held with this year's topic as the argument.

Evans, assistant, is taking the place of E. Carl Green, who is on leave for the academic year.

With the final tabulation not yet complete, the registrars office has pronounced this a record enrollment year for the Wildcats. At present there are approximately 1 17-") students enrolled. With at least 30 more applicants to be registered by October 1st, the final count is expected to be well over the 1700 mark. Over 1500 Mark This is the first quarter in Weber's history that the enrollment has climbed above the 1500 mark. The previous high for the school was 14S2, established during the fall quarter of 1057. Enrollment for the Evening school is listed this year as being in excess of 13U0 students. Many Problems With this record enrollment comes an exaggeration of many Quarter campus problems, such as: parking, crowded classrooms, limited studying space in the library, and other limitations on campus facilities.It is interesting to note that the number of students attending Weber represent a number equal to more than half of the studentbody registered at Utah State University, a four year institution. Nisrht School Normal Although the day school enrollment at Weber College is 15 to 10 percent above last year, Night School registration is about normal with 1057-58, according to Mrs. Clarisse H. Hall, registrar. Night school registration was expected to be about 1,450. This figure is approximately the same as last year when 1,44!) students signed up. Total enrollment for both day and nig'ht school classes was expected to exceed 3,100. OSCAR WINKER COMIMG!

|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.|
