I Emotional scene from The lark, as Oanchon (LaMont Peterson) tries to save Joan (Joan Silver) from the burning sentence the judges (rear) have pronounced upon her. WEBER COLLEGE SIGNPOST Vol. 2 No. 8 December 2, 1960 OGDEN, UTAH FAMOUS TRIAL RECREATED Joan Oi Arc 'Lives' In Arena Play By Eloise McQuown Signpost Staff Writer Joan of Arc came to life Tuesday; Wednesday and Thursday nights at the Weber College Arena Theatre when ian all student cast presented the "Lark". Director John M. Elzey did a top-notch job in turning 26 students into realistic' 15th century characters. Adapted by Lillian Hellman from -a play by Jean Anouilh, the "Lark" seemed especially effective in the Arena Theatre. Action was concentrated. Scenery and props were kept at a minimum. "The girl was a lark in the skies of Prance, high over the heads of her soldiers, singing a joyous, crazy song of courage . ." In the leading role of the Maid of Orleans, Joan Silver was the focal point of interest and kept the play moving along at a high emotional level. She made the most of a demanding part. Perhaps if anything her performance was a little too intense, but then the play is a very dramatic one. Joan was surrounded by a very interesting group of characters. Steven Rubin was Warwick who came to blame the peasant girl and remained to praise her. Lamont Peterson ..as ..Father ..Couchon drawn (between the duties of the church and his Christianity. Gary London ias the Promoter was defiant and cruel. I choose as the most dedicated performer, the Scribe who started writing at the beginning of the play and wrote steadily until the end. The play will be presented again tonight and tomorrow night at 8:30. Registration for Winter Quarter begins Thursday, December 15, at 10:00 a.m. Students will not be issued appoint-. ment tickets for registeration. All students will register in alphabetical order, according to their last names. Registration for students will be as follows : Excels Slates 'Night Of ; . Evil Doings' Tonight at 8:30, The Malefic, one of the "high nights" of the year, will be presented by the Excelsior Men's Club of Weber College. The dance, in keeping with tradition, will be held at the Old Mill. Because the name "Malefic" signifies a night cf evil doings, this seems an appropriate place to hold the affair. Dress will be Ivy League, and the cost is $2.00 per couple. These may be obtained from any Excels member, or at the door. The music will' be presented by The Jack Gift Orchestra, one of the more progressive groups in the area. The Malefic should provide recreation and fun for everyone, and, as an added incentive, many valuable door prizes will be given away. Finals Set For Dec. 13 The final examinations for this quarter will begin Tuesday December 13 and will last three days. According to Mrs. Clarisse Hall, registrar, class instruction for the Autumn quarter will end Monday December 12, while the final examinations will go Tuesday through Thursday. The examination schedule will be posted on the bulletin board in each building next week. LADY IN THE TUB Final Exams: Are They Good Or Bad By Mary Ellen Ryan Signpost Staff Writer Question: Is the final exam a true measure of a student's performance during the year? Dick Derry: "Yes, they give an all-over picture of what the students learned and what they can apply." "It depends on the class procedure," said Chris Baddley, "a final can be crammed for and isn't a true measure of what you actually know." Kenneth Oullars thinks that there's too much pressure applied on them, "A student's everyday performance should count more than the test which is only an over-all picture of what you've had." Teacher Can Evaluate "It helps the teacher to evaluate their teaching and students to evaluate their study habits," was Joan Christensen's comment, "It's a source of knowledge for the students and a good final check for the course." Jon O'Dell: "A composite of all the tests and schoolwork for the quarter gives a better average for a final grade." Connie Harvey: "Yes, I think if you've studied during the year you'll know what's on the test and if you haven't you'll fail anyhow." Finals Build Tension "You shouldn't base so much in one exam," said Steve Porter, Marian Mcintosh: "No, final exams build up too much tension and you get overly confused and worried."Val Parrish: "It's only a partial measure, because some students are able to take an exam easier and are more confident in themselves, whereas another person who can't express himself as well may know the material better but not ge able to put it down effectively under strain." For registration purposes a student is considered a sophomore or advanced freshman if he is enrolled the Autumn Quarter and if he has previously attended Weber College or another college prior to Autumn Quarter.

|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.|
