A Y to : ,sNs -". . , Got Love Problems? If So, Read This By Dell Foutz PROBLEM: I am arecently-turned-eighteen year old Weber College freshman. Although I find Weber's girls fun and likable, I don't feel right dating girls who are older than I am.

Consequently, the poor Weber fresh man must have the girl home by 11:00 p.m. What can I do? ANSWER: Join the Navy and see the world: . PROBLEM: I too am a recently turned-eighteen year old Weber College freshman a girl. Some people have described me as "at tractive", and according to all the information I have found in Fig uratively Speaking, my appearance should be at least shapely. I have many admirable hobbies such as: tennis, skiing, swimming. sewing, cooking, reading to name only a few. Nothing really ob noxious in my personality has ever come to my attention, but I still aon t nave any dates. Where is my trouble? (Signed) I. Wanda Mann ANSWER: On a slow boat to Korea. Prompt care may prevent crippl ing when polio strikes. It is pro vided for thousands by your March of Dimes contributions. Give to- 1 day! Don't Park in Area That May Create Traffic Hazard It's true that Weber college has many parking hazards but a few restrictions must be set up for principles of convenience and safety. Please, do not park between the signs in front of the Presidents home. This area is used as an un loading zone and if any cars are parked here, students who receive rides to school will find it necessary to walk in the middle of the street. Do So Under Own Risk Any automobiles that violate this rule and park in this restricted area must do so under his own risk, as police patrols are watching the area and cars found there will be towed away and the owner must not only pay a parking violation ticket but must pay all toll charges. Other Parking Spaces Parking may be done on any other place on the north side of twenty-fifth street with the exception of an unloading area in front of the C.I. and bus stops. A convenient parking lot is situated just north of the Moench building and space is usually available at that location. If a car owner parks in "No Parking" zones he may violate ten or twenty dollars and he is also creating a terrific traffic hazard Obey the rules! More than 100,000 infantile para lysis cases were reported during the three years, 1948-50. Four out of every five people stricken re ceived aid in whole or in part from March of Dimes funds of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The 1951 March of Dimes takes place January 15-31, with Americans in all walks of life contributing to make possible continuation of this assistance in thefuture. Free Orchids, Music of Jack Hansen's Orchestra Will Be Highlighted Tonight The Sophomore class will revive an old tradition back to Weber when they present the Orchid Ball tonight in the College ballroom. The mammoth affair formally was an annual affair but this year will mark the first time has been held for seven years. VV.C.--R.O.T.C. May Become Reality In a telegram to President Dixon, on Jan. 19, Rep. Walter W. Granger (Dem.), announced the introduction of a new bill asking legal means of granting Weber College R.O.T.C. Rep. Granger said he had every hope of speedy action because the bill had been drafted with the help of the Defense Dept. where other bills in the past have not. Dr Dixon, CoL Frank Browning, head of the Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Commute, and many others have been working for years to get R.O.T.C. at Weber. The bill will be known as HR 1775. Selective Service Important Change The following important change in Selective Service regulations was released under a Washington date line last Saturday: "The draft rules have been changed to permit students, called for induction, to finish a school year and still pick their own branch in the armed forces. "The change eliminate a kink in the regulations which had caused many youths to drop out of college in midterm in order to enlist. "Heretofore receipt of a draft call has meant automatically that the student was headed for the army, since the ether services have been getting all their men by the volunteer route. "Because of that, the defense department said,' many quit their classes to volunteer, even though if they waited for the draft they could finish out the term before being inducted."Hereafter the student getting a draft notice may volunteer for a selected branch within the two months preceding the last month of the school term, and report when the term is over." This change of regulations means that a student may arrange a postponement of induction until the end of the school year by getting a letter from the Registrar's Office, and may still have his choice of the Air Corp, Navy, or Army, but he must make his choice known before May 6. Don't Forget S.A. Pictures "Turn your head to the right a little wet your lips don't look so sour that's it ah, good. Next." Anyone who missed his appointment for Scribulus Acorn pictures should contact the photographers for reappointments. If you made no appointment, the Scribulus Acorn staff, with Mrs. Helen Kelly as advisor, would like you to make arrangements for your picture as soon as possible. Although Weber has nearly about a thousand students, poor coopera tion from the student body has enabled the photographers to get only 300. Mr Par (on the level), who is morning photographer for the staff, says that although the pictures are free, the general attitude is "Why should I have a "picture taken?' With students leaving college every week, these pictures will be very important in a year or two. Fel lows going in the service are urged to get their pictures because many will not rejoin their college groups after they come back. Grover Sparkman, afternoon photographer, and Par take the shots and Mr. Rabe and his classes develop them. fat Andrews, sophomore class president, expressed her desire to continue this fine activity in the years to come. Pat also announced that this year's affair will be brought back with a bang because of the fine music of Jack Hansen and the fact that free orchids will be passed out to each girl at the dance. A lovely queen will.be chosen to rule over the dance and the big winter carnival on the day of the dance. Ten lovely young co-eds are running for the queenship and the winner will be chosen this afternoon and be presented tonight at the dance. The Sophomore class officers will present the winner with a lovelv white orchid during intermission. Those vieing for the title are: Lou Jean Allison, whose interest lies in the medical field, namely Dick Nil- sson; Diane Jones, president of La Dianaeda; Zelda Jensen, pert Shar-mae member; Joyce Lundgren. bell of the athletic office; Annette Bott and Marilyn Sessions, vice presi dent and secretary of the Sophomore class; Yvonne Erickson, money collector of LaDianaeda; Shirley Dean, who's about to take the step of matrimony; tall blond Emma Hipp-well, who has that extra special sailor in mind and last but not least is Darlene Powell, student body vice president and active Weber college co-ed. These candidates were chosen by the sophomore class officers and Ralph Macfarlane and Rex Gardner, sophomore representatives to the board of control. Remember tonight free orchids and the melow music of Jack Hansen's orchestra. The big affair will get under way at nine o'clock. Take Word From Vet 11 Don't Quit School II By Ralph Jeppson "Should I quit school now and enlist or wait to be drafted?" this seems to be the question of the month on the campus. Many young men, spurred by a mixture of patriotic enthusiasm and thoughts of adventure have already discarded the plans and hopes cultivated since childhood to join the services. Some of them in the middle of the quarter. Patriotism and willingness to serve is a marvelous credit to any man but I think it would be better for him to prepare himself to serve-really well first. I joined the army just after I turned 18 and it wasn't long before I began to see the great advantages of having a college education. Wherever I went the men who had had some college training in any field, some with less than a year were called out and given the responsible positions from the very first. The rest of us were treated as typical "sad sacks". If and when the real major conflict begins I am sure that we will find it extremely difficult to win by numbers, rather let us prepare to meet strength with strength and intelligence. Let our young men go, if they must, . prepared to use both "brains and brawn" if they really want a victorious peace. Frosh Class Takes Barker Extemp Meet Eugene Swenson and Dick Richards teamed together in the Barker extemp contest to give the Freshman class the trophy for the corning year. Swenson walked off with top honors and the ten dollar prize. The former Davis high student talked on "Should We Take Our Troops Out of Korea".

|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.|
