UTAH February 13, 1959 WO To Host Nation's Largest High SoSiooS Speech Tourney Stars Name Winners Valentine's Eve Sets Sweetheart Ball Mood "Without a doubt," says Dr. Le-land H. Monson, Chairman of the Division of Humanities, "the annual hiph school speech tournament held at Weber College is the By LeRoy Yorgason largest high school meet in the nation." Students, teachers, and judges from Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Nevada will assemble at Weber Gateway Singers, Variety Byword With Quartet The Gateway Singers, a folk song quartet, will present a concert to college students on Feb. 17, in the Ogden High School auditorium. These four young people sing songs from all over the world including African rounds, nonsense songs, prison and work songs, and lullabies. "The thing that we try to do is to take the old songs . . . and make them more appealing to modern audiences by bringing them up-to-date with modern musical settings and the beat of present day jazz," explained the banjo player for the group. This program scheduled on the Lecture Series admits students free with their activity cards. It will begin at N:l.". Gifted Pianist To Be Featured The Utah State Symphony will make its fifth appearance February 10, at K:ir p.m., in the Ogden High School Auditorium. Glenn Gould, piano soloist, is featured for this concert. He is said to have a dynamic personality and flamboyant manner which captivates his audiences. His emotional gestures do not detract from his absolute concentration of his performance. His habit of conducting himself when one hand happens to be free of the keyboard and other gestures of this nature are simply an extension of his intentions toward the music he is playing. The program for the evening will be Dance Rhythm by Riegger, Concerto No. 3 by Beethoven, Mr. Gould at the piano, and Symphony No. ") by Prokofiev. Full-time day school students may get reserved seats, without cost, at the Treasurer's office. for the Twenty-third Annual Tournament on Feb. 20 and '21.

Nilsson and John Elzey, "B" debate; Thatcher Allred, Leonard Rowley, and H. E. D. Redford, oratory and extemporaneousspeaking- Delmar Dickson has secured businessmen, professional men, and servicemen from Ogden and the surrounding area to act as judges. Hill Air Force Base, Clearfield Naval Base, Utah General Depot, and the Forest Service have each contributed twenty men to help judge the contest. Acting also as judges will be the entire faculty of Weber. Dr. Monson encourages basic . communications classes to assist in judging the debates held in those. classes. The flood of 1-100 people onto the campus has created a problem with the already crowded conditions. To solve this problem, a church fn the north and a church on the west have been rented to house the debates. Five teams in each men's and women's debate will receive recognition with an individual medal and a plaque for the school they represent. The oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and "B" division debate will recognize only first place winner.

|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.|
