"Religion is bread for every day use not cake to be used on special occasion,' concluded Mr. McKay. Miss Kay Jon Mildon, a freshman, was the first speaker. Miss Mildon's subject was "The War in Korea, Folly or the Obligation of Prosperity". Appeasement has led to destruction, claimed Miss Mildon. It has sapped the economic system of nations. America has' paid dearly for appeasement. In the Munic agreement, Hitler asked for a country and he was given that country. In Korea we must give no ground, no freedom, nor bend to the will of the tyrant. Miss Mildon believes even now in Korea there is a futile feeling due to the length of half a war, the sacrifice, hardships, to say nothing of backing down and forgetting our objective. "Let us say," said Kay Jon, "millions for defense, but not one person sacrificed to appease the tyrant!" Second speaker, also a freshman was Reed Walquist, who spoke on the subject, "Should We Create an Elite People Exempt from Combat Duty?" Should college students be exempt from draft in order to finish their college education, or should they be drafted? Mr. Walquist asked. "Students of high caliber and who are in technical fields should be allowed to finish their education," Walquist claimed. Reasons given for his belief were: 1. Russia has the majority of manpower. To even up the odds we need to advance far ahead of other countries in skill and newer, more efficient methods so that, other countries can not catch up. 2.

|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.|
