COLLEGIATE FROM THESE SIX CANDIDATES (L TO R): CLARK OLSEN, SUZANN JOYCE ELDREDGE, JON COLLINS, GWEN FOLEY, AND CARY JACKSON. AND MISS DICKSON, English I: Trite Review? By Larry Peer Signpost Staff Writer This opinion poll is the first in a series designed to reflect student attitude on seemingly serious questions. The opinions expressed here are those of the honor roll type student on the Weber College campus. They reflect the opinions of the majority of those students quizzed on the following question: "Do you think English I fulfills its objectives as outlined in the catalog?" Steve Hess: "It seems that the class itself might fulfill these objectives if the instructors spent more time in preparing lecture material." Dick Diamond: "The study of parts of speech and the writing of research papers do not mean a study of communication. I wonder why the teachers think it does?" Eloise McQuown: "It seemed like a trite review of high school material to me. It did teach the writing of expository material." Tom Clark: "English I was a good review of skills that should have been learned before entering college. The research and expository paper were valuable." Jill Bateman: "Spelling, grammar, and writing forms are valuable and essential to the college student, but are not worth three hours of credit when a good college requires the student to review these essentials on his own." Sergio Perkins: "It depends on how you define the study of com munication. This is a fine class for students interested in high school work. It is not a fine class for those who want to learn theories of language, etc., taught in English classes at great universities."Kent Van De Graaff: "English I exists as a camplete farce as far as the study of communication is concerned. The closest thing to the study of communication is semantics; yet, this was never mentioned in my class." Kent Greenwood: "Since when is spelling a study ofcommunication?" Film Will Show Communist China A graohic, eye-witness film account of how China's 650 million live today will be shown in the Moench auditorium Jan. 19, (Thursday), at 8:15 p. m. by a wel-known film traveler, Robert Cohen.

Scenes of Peking, Shanghai, Canton, the rebuilding of the Great Wall, the giant bridge across the Yangtze, Nanking University, Sampan dwellers, primitive forms of labor contrasted with modern life will be shown.

Andelin, has submitted these oil and water color paintings from his collection of the past .10 years. The scenes may be familiar to some, since they were all painted from locations ranging from the Tetons of Idaho to Southern Arizona.The paintings should be of additional interest since Mr. Andelin has gained fame throughout the western area as a conservative landscape painter.

|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.|
