'Spruce Up Weber, BOS Urges By Linda Ritchie Signpost Staff Writer The Board of Control has organized an "Appearance Committee' to keep Weber College looking spruced-up. Kathee Reeder and Diave Strom-berg are the leaders. With Weber's advancement to a four-year college in the near future, the studentbody must become concerned with the appearance of the campus. First Objective The first objective of the committee iis the Temporary Union Building. Even though there are eight trash cans in the TUB, litter is left on the tables and the floor. TUB tables were refinished last summer, but now some people have ruined the surfaces by carving on them.

WEBER COLLEGE SIGNPOST Vol. 2 No. 13 February 3, 1961 OGDEN, UTAH Lady In The Tub When They Wear Bhlth By Mary Ellen Ryan Signpost Staf Writer Question:.. Do you think girls should wear slacks on the college campus ? Judy Vaughn thinks they're sill right as long as they're not too tight . . . "They're a convenience." "It's okay," said Dennis Peterson, "however, casual clother make for a casual atmosphere. Most girls Look better in skirts and dresses. Slacks don't leave much for imagination!" Look Nice Peggy Pulsipher "I think girls should be conscious of their femininity and dress as ladies. If it's necessary for them to wear them to a particular class, then it's be perfectly acceptable.. It's all right with Leonard Stevenson. "Some girls look pretty nice in slacks." "I think they're all right," said Judy Davidson, "they're not any more revealing that the short skirts." Open-Blinded Jim Sass - I think they should; most girls look rather cute in them. "Yeah!" was Gary Saunders comment, "They can do anything they want, I'mopen-minded." "In other four year universities girls aren't allowed to wear slacks why should we?" asked Linda Monk. Fred Wilberg: "Not necessarily, unless the girls need to wear them for certain classes. They seem more feminine in skirts." i Barb Perry and Jean Pierotti think slacks are fine under certain circumstances . . . but not as the general rule. Grose Takes Leave Miss Wilma Grose, catalog librarian of Weber College, will attend Columbia University library school February . through June during her Sabbatical leave. Miss Grose, whose services at Weber span a period of 20 years, is director of technical phases of the college library now in process of expansion to meet the needs of a four-year college program. Student Cast Readies Williams' Drama By Jim Sass Signpost Staf Writer The Weber College Theatre Arts Department will open its doors to 'Glaiss Menagerie' directed by T. Leonard Rowley, on February 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 in the Moench Arena Theatre - 8:30 p.m. 'Glass Menagerie' is" one of Tennessee Williams earliest and perhaps best plays. It has been ranked as one of the most outstanding American Dramatic works. Professional Job The cast, consisting of Mike Valentine, Kay McGarry, Linda Oborn and Ray Perry, has been in rehearsal since Christmas and the talent of director Rowley has turned these college students into well-nigh professional actors making the play unbelievably fascinating.There is absolutely no way to describe 'Glass Menagerie', except to say that every scene will leave the audience breathless. To know and believe the story, a person has' to ' see it. Fascinating, Different The play is fascinatingly different not only in plot but in lighting and scenery as well. The wrap around set enfolds the audience. This is Mr. Rowley's second play of the current season and should be just as good as 'Death of a Salesman'. Faculty and students may purchase tickets at the cashier's window for 75 cents. Season ticket for the two remaining arena plays may be purchased for $1.00. Preference Ball Next On A. W. S. Calendar Like the Canadian Mounties, the girls of Weber College always get their man ... their most pre-fered man! This is made possible each year at the Annual Preference Ball. Presented by the AWS, the Ball will be held February 10, at 9:00 p.m. in the Weber College Ballroom. Tickets are $1.50 and the affair is semi-formal. Music will be provided by the Scotemen. Girls secure their date by listing their preferences at the Dean of Women's Office, and the lucky guys receive their invitation by the "courtesy of the United States Postal Department."

|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.|
