WEBER COLLEGE No. 10 Miss Petersen Miss Lindsey Miss Grange m-,- J-- j'Ac Miss Hodges w Miss Borger Miss Allen FROM OTHER CAMPUSES .ow brades? By BETTY BALLARD Signpost Staff Writer Everyone should have realized by now that next week is test week. If you haven't, good luck on the tests. You may have an excuse. For example, that blond that sits next to you in your Life Science class, or the redhead you met in the TUB, or even owning a car is an excuse for not getting good grades. The Brigham Young University Daily Universe says: "A recent survey of the students of a Nevada high school, reported by the United Press International, shows a very definite relationship between low grades and car driving." No "A" Student "The study showed that not one "A" student owned an automobile, Only five per cent of the "B" students did, while -i't per cent of the "C" students and 71 per cent of the "D" students were car owners."If you get "D's" and don't own a car, blonds are your weakness. Social clubs are always making a lot of noise around the school. Some of the independents may resent this, but a paper from a Los Angeles College, the Los Angeles Loyolan, has this to say about fraternities (which are related to clubs in a round-about way): SIGNPOST OGDEN, UTAH December 11, 1959 Learns Responsibility "A fraternity helps develop the complete man not only socially but academically as well. In a fraternity, a person learns responsibility not only towards himself but towards others." "Besides the importance to the development of the individual, the fraternities as a whole are the backbone of the school's successes. Try to imagine extra-curricular CALENDAR For week of December ll-lli: Dec. 11 Humanities Assembly, 11 a.m., Moench Building. Basketball Weber at Long Beach.

Think of Homecoming without floats; a social season limited to one or two dances. In other words a school without spirit." "Taking fraternity men as individuals, we find that four out of five advanced cadets, and five out of six varsity athletes are fraternity men." "I guess we can say then that the fraternities should not only be tolerated for what they are but they should be appreciated as an integral part of college life." Well said . . . and it certainly applies to the clubs around campus. But they still make a lot of noise. Who's a Wise Guy There is always a wise guy in the crowd, and if you happen to be the one, here are some new sayings taken from Ogden High's Tiger High Lights, to help you get through to people." "Go Gargle with peanut butter.""Let's follow it and see what it eats." "It's been a hunk of heaven, but I think I'll jump for earth." "Your Mother must have bought you with Gold Strike Stamps." And as a final gesture, East High School says: "There were the two Hypochondriacs who correspond regularly. They were penicillin pals."

|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.|
