By SIG PONT To every good columnist there comes at least once when he doesn't have anything to write about, and good columnist or not, this time has come to me. Therefore, I have picked up a few little things which I figure might be of interest to the average college student. Did you know, for instance, that every day your heart beats 103,-389 times, your blood travels 108 million miles, you breathe 23,040 times, you inhale 438 feet of air, you eat 31 pounds of food, you drink 2.9 pounds of liquid, you perspire 1.43 pints, you give off 8.6 degrees of heat, you generate 150 tons of energy, you speak 4.800 words, you move 750 major muscles, your nails grow .000057 inches, your hair grows .01714 inches, and you exercise 7 million brain cells. Whether or not all this data is physiologically correct I don't know, but if it is, man you should be real beat by the end of the day! Chess Moves Here's a little note for you chess fans. You can fill 45 libraries with 444,000 books of 200 pages each just containing the zeros after the 1 for the number of possible moves on a chess board. Did you ever think about keys much? Here's a couple of items that might make you think about them a little. In the early days of America, honeymooning couples in hotels and inns were each given a key to a "honeymoon lock". The lock didn't open unless both keys were turned. Now, what was that Boy Scout motto? The Trusting Roman The legend is told that in the days of ancient Rome an officer called away to the wars locked his beautiful young wife and armor up and gave the key to his best friend and said, "If I don't return in six months, use this key." He then galloped off to the wars. Ten miles away from home he saw a cloud of dust approaching and he waited. His friend on horseback galloped up and said, "You gave mp thp wrnnp kpv." Got a Cold? Since this is the season of colds, flu, and various and sundry other ailments I have a little thing here which is meant to be somewhat of a consolation to any of those who catch any of these. You have two chances: One of getting the germ And one of not. And if you get the germ You have two chances One of getting a disease And one of not. And if you get the disease You have two chances One of dying And one of not. And if you die Well, you still have two chances. Now, don't forget your letters for the contest why you should have your picture in the paper. The deadline is the 12th of February, you know, and also, don't forget the letters that keep this column going. Names Now Top 2, 25 Are Disqualified For Discrepancies By GEORGE DAVLANTES The Junior College Action Committee has obtained over 20,000 of the 33,000 signatures required to postpone the transfer of the two Junior Colleges to some private organization. The referendum petitions must be signed, certified, and filed before February 19, 1954, in order to suspend the date when the laws will otherwise take effect. The laws closing the state colleges are to take effect June 30, 1954. 25 Disqualified One out of every four signatures has been disqualified. The main reason for this is that some of the signers have moved from the district in which they were registered during the last election. Notaries are recanvassing to get proper signatures and addresses of the disqualified people, the Logan area A drive for 1,500 signatures started in the Logan area Jan. 27. The state has been divided into two sections in the drive for signatures. Headquarters have been set up in Ogden and Price. Work is being done in every county with the exception of Millard and Juab. However, the distribution of petitions will commence in these two counties in several days. Quotas To Fill Signature quotas must be filled in 15 of 29 Utah counties. Excellent results are reported from Salt Lake County. Weber, Salt Lake and Carbon counties will have to exceed 10 per cent in case some of the other counties fall short of theirs. If It's Talent You Want. Don't Miss Assembly Feb. 17 Talent, and lots of it, will be on parade Wednesday, February 17, in the Moench Auditorium when the ten Weber College social clubs run for the roses, and, incidentally, prizes, in the annual inter-club talent show. Hostilities, or rather festivities, get underway at 7:30 p. m. 'Each club will have eight minutes to lay 'em in the aisles. Actually this is one night of the year when parents and friends of the students get to see what the kids can do outside of schoolwork. This is one time when all the clubs, both women's and men's, can compete against each other at the same time. , Several judges will be chosen from persons unaffiliated with Weber. The clubs, Alpha Rho Omega, Chanodo, Excelsior, Iota Tau Kappa, La Dianaeda, Otyok-wa, Phoenix, Sharmea, Sigma Delta Phi, and Skull, will be judged on a basis of overall theme, excellence of performance, over-all beauty, originality, integration, humor, interest to audience, percentage of club participants, and costuming. Attention, Sophs! Apply Now All students who plan to graduate this spring must call at the Registrar's Office and annlv im mediately. Come and See "Perfect Alibi", February 11, 12, and 13th. SEZ WHO? Pantaloons! For Girls? At Dances ! ! By NANCY SANDERS This vital question has been asked around the campus this week "What is your opinion of girls wearing pantaloons to dances?" Here are the answers: Kay Lewis "I , think it's alright. (They're those panties that come down to here, aren't they?) If that's all they wear, it's fine! I guess you might say it about covers the subject!" Lynn Perkins "I think it's rot ten! It might have been O.K. in Grandma's d a y, but I would just as soon see girl's ' VI legs as I would N , I I see little curly pantaloons. Besides, it takes all the sport out of i$ dancing (if you hat I makes look bow- - 4 Sk STZ, Si' H:'!V'';; know wl '-timlllMt mean!) It ;:?:!r.: a gin look Shirley Snow "Oh. I think they are cute. It looks a lot nicer when you spin around real fast, but it is up to the girl whether or n o t she wears them. They look swell under quilted skirts or felt skirts, but, of course, you can't legged.' V, wear them under peg skirts because they are too bulky." Holly Glanville "I think that girls should wear them to dances, because I think it looks better if you jitterbug or whirl, when you have a full skirt on."

|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.|
