WEBER COLLEGE Vol. 1 No. 8 LADY IN THE TUB By Patti Meikle Signpost Associate Editor (Editor's note: This is the fifth in a series of student opinion polls on pertinent . . . and impertinent subjects.)

Weber College will send its de OGDEN, UTAH Charlene Crouch, a Freshman, said: "The stores should at least wait until after Thanksgiving before putting out their Christmas merchandise. The way things are going now, they'll soon be advertising Christmas before Halloween comes!"

Evelyn, Susan Brown, seems a bit perturbed with James, her husband, Dave Stromberg. He just can't seem to get the feet in the right place at the right time. December 4, 1939 ''Stores should put out their Christmas displays right after Thanksgiving so that everyone won't be crowding into the stores at the last minute." Pet Peeve "Commercialized Christm a s e s have always been a pet peeve of mine," Paul Brown, a Sophomore, said: "We start concentrating on our Christmas shopping too early, and by the time the holiday arrives, we've lost the true spirit of Christmas." Colleen Earll, another Sophomore, commented: "Shopping early does give you one advantage; you have a wider selection of things to choose from than you have when you shop later." Analee Reynolds and Gerri Chatwin, both Freshmen, said: "The stores start pushing Christmas too soon. You lose the spirit of Thanksgiving when everywhere you go, you see Christmas advertised."Shouldn't Overshadow Ken McGowan, a Sophomore: "The businesses shouldn't start advertising Christmas until after Thanksgiving is over. Both holidays have their places, and one shouldn't over-shadow the other." Final comment came from Don Miner, a Freshman: "Christmas shouldn't be emphasized until after December first. When I came from Kansas last year, I thought Ogden was jumping the gun a little by having a Santa Claus Parade in November." ills Sta Scribulus, Weber College's literary magazine, is now fully staffea and is being prepared for distribution to students during the first part of spring quarter.. Organized last year, Scribulus was published by the English Department for the first time in seven years last spring quarter. Its function is to offer to all students an oulet for creative skills in the fields of writing and story illustrating which is provided by no other medium on campus. It further presents to the studentbody as a whole a representative selection of these creative works for the students' reading pleasure. Contributions from all students are welcomed, and should be giv- As each submission is received, it is given a number and the author's name is removed, with an accurate record kept of the names which accompany each number. In this way, selections may be made by the editors with only the work itself being considered, and not the author. After all selections for publication have been made, the names are thenre-attached and all authors are given due credit for their work. The magazine is under the supervision of the English Department, and its advisor is R. S. Mikkelesen. The editor is Colleen Keyes, Business manager, David Shrider. Other staff members include: Nita Andersen, Frances Carr, Kathryn Ann Cowley, Mary Ann Davies,Melvin Day ley, Tracy Dowiatt, Colleen Earl. Larry Ebenhart, Mary Lou Ensign, Carolyn Grance, Sandra Hansen, RaVae McDonald, Linda Oborn, Linda L. Owen, Larry Peer, Leora Porter, Judy Slater, Sherma Topping, and Ruth Walsh. risght or Hm Weber College's drama department has been proving all week that it can excel in comedy as well as drama. "The Late Mr. Early" is the de- ightfully hilarious play being pre sented tonight and tomorrow evening at S:3l in the Arena Theater at the Moench Building. These performances will climax a six-night run. Mr. T. Leonard Rowley displayed his polished art of direction to best advantage in the rather unique theater-in-the-round. He erased any dead spots and kept the show moving at a fast pace. The difficult job of assisting the director and handling music was eificiently accomplished by Joyce Eldridge. Dead or Alive John Hale, in the title role of Mr. Early, was mag-nifieient whe-tner alive, dead or romantic. Elaine Parker put spirit and life into her role as Drois Hull. Her gay enthusiasm was captivating. Her mother, Fanny Hull, played by Gayle Gunderson, was the outstanding characterization of the play. She gained 30 years through a little makeup and a lot of talent.Mr. James Clarke, portrayed by Dave Stromberg, was quite scholarly but could have used a bit more power. Susan Brown who played his wife Evelyn, was a very delightful nitwit talking incessantly. She maintained her character easily. Seemed at Ease Mark, played by Norman Bramble, and Alice, played by Kaye McGarry, seemed at ease in their respective roles and added much to the unity of the play. Nancy Mclntire remained cool and aloof, as she created the role of Vera Smith. Her suitor, as done by Bob Wood, showed his ability and experience and characterized his role very convincingly. He also had a very interesting English accent. Off-Beat Character Phillip Mathews as Judge Se-well carried well throughout the play. Lynette Fausett as Selma had good feeling for her part and provided an interesting and offbeat character. Judy Butler, Ray Godfrey and Bill Higley were also very good in the roles. Mr. Higley was es7 pecially humorous as the friendly undertaker. On the technical end, Dave Son-drup effectively lighted the setting, De Page and Kay Sweeny provided realistic props and Judy Bayer was responsible for the swift costume changes.

|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.|
