A win over Snow tomorrow could jjive the Wildcats their first gridiron title since 1!MG. SIGNPOST WEBER COLLEGE Vol. 1 No. 7 Signpost: 8 It has been said that the editor of the Signpost is always looking for things about which he may "gripe" or "deride." However, the two matters which are now to be discussed did not have to be looked for, as they glared this writer directly in the face. Weber College is now in the middle of what could probably be considered the best football season in its history. Never in the twelve years that the ICAC has been organized has a Wildcat football team walked off with the conference championship. This year, the Weber team has to win one more game, and it will capture the league title. A person who has only the slightest interest in athletics should be stirred, but not at Weber College. Stands Half Full In the hot conference race, the stands are usually not even half-full. As the football team drives towards a possible championship, the fans stay away. Another disgusting matter at the college is the support given the dramatic productions. Out of 1800 studentbody tickets, which provided a free pass to the "Dairy of Anne Prank," only 250 were used. How can interest be stimulated in the community if it cannot be aroused at school. This was one of the most ambitious undertakings of the Theater Arts Department and people who saw the production praised it highly, and yet on opening night only 150 people were in the audience. Friday, attendance improved slightly to approximately 250. There are not low enough words to describe the pitiful attendance at Saturday's matinee as only 25 people attended. Dr. Lowell Lees of the University of Utah was present. It is to what little credit the public has left after such a disgraceful showing, that over 375 people attended Saturday evening show. There is always the possibility that some of these people had to work but 1550 students surely don't work Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings in addition to Saturday afternoon. Faculty, Too Not only students, but faculty members stayed away in droves, and what were some of the reasons they gave for their absence? "When you show a comedy, I'll come. I don't like shows in which people suffer," they said. This writer truly hopes that these faculty members will someday wake up to the reality that the world is. not all buttered corn and cinnamon rolls. Probably the idea of entertainment and relaxation of these people is to turn over on their other side so that they might continue to eat their TV dinner in more comfort, as they watch "Captain Kangaroo" or "The Mickey Mouse Club." y.v.v- ",;" - -.-.. wr.

LADY IN THE TUB Club Page By Patti Meikle Signpost Associate Editor (Editor's Xote: This is the third in a series of student opinion polls on pertinent . . . and impertinent . . . subjects.) Question: Should Weber's social clubs use the third page of the Signpost to hang out their dirty linen ? Lynn Taylor, Phoenix, said: "Most people don't know what the club reporters are talking about when they give each other dirty digs. They ought to write mote about club activities and other things of general interest." Joyce Burnett, an Independent: "The club page is the first page I read. I think the friendly fights between John Hale and Dennis Dahl create reading interest for everyone, whether or not you belong to a club." Tears Morale Pat Berger, Sharmea, and Vir. ginia Larimore, Atyokwa, like to read the club news but are opposed to the clubs bickering in print. "It tears down the school's morale," Pat said. Ann Graser, an independent, commented: "I think the club news shows initiative on the part of the reporters and expresses friendly competition among clubs. I al Weber First ICAC Crown Iy ISrent Wilcox Signpost Associate Sports Editor The Webor Wildcats place their conference hopes and a fine season's record on the line this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. when they meet Snow College on the Weber field. This contest appears to be the championship game of the ICAC Weber, Boise and CSU are currently tied for the lead, but since Weber plays one more game than the other two, a win over Snow will give Weber undisputed first place and the conference championship.

USHSA Plans Regional Meets At Weber Robert Thomas, English professor at Brigham Young University, Provo, will be the keynote speaker on Saturday at !t::0 a.m. when the United States National Students Association holds its regional assembly at Weber college. Professor Thomas also directs BYU's honor program. Also speaking before the association will be Don Clifford, national director of the USNSA's Foreign Leadership project, and Miss Diana Hatch, who will discuss "The Real Value of the USXSA." The assembly will continue throughout the day and will divide into three workshops to consider student to faculty relations, student to student relations, and student administration. Michael Dykes, local USXSA officer, has announced that program plans will also include the serving of lunch and dinner to those in attendance. Prominent civic leaders from this vicinity are expected to be present as well as association members from nearby chapters. It is estimated that between 73 and 100 will attend. Shows Iniative ways read this page first." "The club page is a waste of space," Richard Budd, an independent said. "The fighting among clubs passes over the heads of the average student. Unless you're in a club, you don't know what they're talking about." Read Phoenix Kurt Sharar, an independent: "I read Phoenix' and Excelsior's columns because they're always slashing at each other, but I seldom read the other club news." Charles McCrary, another independent, said: "I enjoy reading club news because it brings out the friendly rivlary among clubs. But sometimes they go too far in their back-biting."

Religion Lecture, Moench Auditorium, 7:30 p.m. The Wildcats played "clutch" ball as they defeated Eastern Arizona College in the last 20 seconds of play on a field goal by Brent Hancock. Line Held The Weber team played the type of ball they played earlier in the season as they moved the ball well and held Eastern Arizona to nine yards rushing in the last half. Snow College has lost all its games except to Ricks College. However, Weber cannot take Snow lightly as the southern Utah team has become tougher as the season progressed. Injuries have weakened Weber "nnsiderably as Jim Mackay and Fred Van Dyke, two Weber fullbacks appear to be out for the rest of the season. The withdrawal from school of Ed Pearce greatly weakened quarterback depth, also. This tilt is the most important game for Weber in many seasons. Weber has never won the ICAC football championship since the conference was organized twelve years ago. A victory Saturday will bring long-lost football prestige to the Wildcat lair.

|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.|
