FOUR-DAY TRIP J Fabulous 'Buss' Trip Provides Thrills, Laughs, Good Times By Catherine Moser Sunrise pajama strolls along Grand Canyon, pitch-black hikes to the Great White Throne, and a visit to Bryce's Wall Street are only a few blister-bringing feats accomplished by Weber College students in Southern Utah. Fourteen students, Mr. Buss, Mrs. Benson, and a local photographer made the four-day trip to Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon National Parks, October 14 to 17. Sleepily leaving the college campus in good spirit, the geologists were loaded down with cam Cousins Is uml Concert-Lecture Series Schedule Interests College, Community By Sharon Harris Norman Cousins, editor of The Saturday Review, will be guest speaker at the second in the series of lectures and concerts, to be held Saturday, October 22, in the Ogden High school auditorium at 8:15 p.m. Mr. Cousins has recently returned from his fourth world survey tour in six years. During his recent trip, he visited Saigon, where the civil war was I being fought, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Singapore, Hong Kong and Bandung, where he attended the historic Asian-African Conference. One of his previous trips was an assignment to India, Pakistan and Ceylon as a lecturer under the auspices of the United States Government. Other Trips Earlier trips took him to Japan, to Germany, and other to Bikini, where he observed the atomic explosions.All of his surveys and trips are the result of dominant interest in the human community and his concern for the condition of man in our time. He has written several books developing this interest in humanity. One book "Who Speaks for Man" was voted the most imoprtant non-fiction title of the Spring of 1953 in a poll of newspaper book reviewers.Mr. Cousins has been the editor of the Saturday Review since 1940, and since that time the magazine has expanded in scope and influence from a purely literary weekly to a journal dealing with ideas and the development of our national culture. Receives Award In 194S, he received the Thomas Jefferson award for service to democracy presented by the Council on Democracy. Following this event of the series, will be a concert presented by the Utah Symphony Orchestra, Thursday, November 3 with guest artist, Jose Iturbi, pianist. Students are urged to take advantage of their student body tickets for the concerts and lectures and participate in them.

Quiet and shy Bill Price surprised the group with his rendition of that old favorite "Mary Had A Little Lamb," accompanying himself, miraculously, on the uke. Geologists are smart? And to prove the point, Mary Lou Ilium tested the mineral content of the dish water, internally! While the honeymooners. Carolyn and Larry, were out rimming, Warren "Romeo" Buss was busy with Jol-ene Holmes. It seems that dancing was a popular sport, all types and all kinds. Catherine Moser and Elaine Robinson entertained the group by dancing on the ceiling of the bus.

NOMAN COUSINS Campus Ballroom Shows'NevLook' Have you noticed the new look around campus ? For instance the newly decorated ballroom? The floors have been refinished and look clean and shiny. The walls have been done in a grey-blue, accented by pink and green. These colors create a flattering combination of red-violet and soft pastels. The dance decorations this year are to be limited to the things which are portable. This is to prevent damage by pins, tape, nails, in or on the wall, also to protect the' floor. This will certainly save the organizations' money and perhaps this money may be put to- more useful projects, such as: funds for a new student union building or maybe just some nice refreshments served at the dances. These are merely suggestions, but the student body can be proud of the ballroom this year, and taking care of it is a fine way to show appreciation for the time and money spent to fix it up for our use. VC Registration May Reach 6,000 Weber College's registration this year shows a ten percent increase over last year. At the present rate of enrollcment, counting each individual only once, the total of six thousand students will be reached for the 1955-50 school year by the time spring quarter registrations are completed. Three thousand students are being taught in the present quarter. Of these, thirteen hundred are attending classes at day school; twelve hundred, evening school; and five hundred, off campus courses given at nearby government installations.

|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.|
