Handy-Book On the Way, Says Editor After weeks of delay, Weber College may finally get a 195!)-1900 Handy Book. The Handy Book should have been finished about four weeks ago but due to a mixup on the printing bids, the book didn't even go to press until last Monday, said Connie Edward, editor. The Handy Book is the small publication with a lot of information. It contains a complete calendar of events for the coming year, Weber College traditions, articles on each club and organiza-, tion in the school plus a directory of the names, addresses and phone numbers of all students and teachers on campus. Not Guaranteed But the complete accuracy of this part of the book is not guaranteed, Connie added. And before any complaints are filed because of a mispelled name or a wrong phone number, it is requested that the person making the complaint stops and thinks about how carefully he filled out his Handy Book card that day in September as registration, she said. The Handy Book will be distributed in Bldg. four between classes about Wednesday. No receipt is necessary because a record was kept of those students who paid in advance. There will be about 50 copies of the book available to students who didn't purchase one beforehand. The staff members are: Editor, Connie Edward; Associate Editors, Kaye McGarry, and Suzanne Stock; Business Manager, Carol Christensen, and Art Editor, Mary Ann Edwards. Dates Set For First Irena Sliow The Late Mr. Early" will open the first of six performances in the Arena Theater on November 30 at 8:30 p.m. Directed by T. L. Rowley of the Theater Arts Department, this hilarious farce promises to provide a very enjoyable evening's entertainment. Assistant director of the production is Joyce El-dredge. Limited Seating Because of the limited seating facilities in the Arena, students are urged to obtain their reservations early for the performance. The story concerns an attempt by the families in making two young hellions think they were killed in a plane crash. Some extremely funny situations are created in the process. The cast for the play include John Hale, Elaine Parker, Kay McGarry, Norman Bramble, Susan Brown, Dave Stromber, Nancy Mc-Entire, Bob Wood, Gayle Gunder-sen, Bill Higley, Judy Butler, Dy-nette Faucett, Ray and Phil Mathews. Prop Committee Lighting will be handled by Dave Sondrup while Dee Page and Kay Sweeny head the prop committee. Other dramatic productions scheduled for the immediate future are "Oedipus Rex" and Showboat. Tryouts for Oedipus will be held immediately following the completion of the "Late Mr. Early."Showboat auditions will be held during the first part of winter quarter.

COLLEGE UTAH November 20, 1959 i body. 1 Question: Do you think it's possible to increase interest in football at" Weber College, and if so, how ? Joyce Cheney, sophomore: "If the clubs would come together and sit down front, it would help a lot. The girls ought to sit together and cheer, too." Brent Waddoups, a freshman, said: "The Hound Dog Trophy competition should be opened to the girls' social clubs." t Wally flalder's Charges Gain First Football Title In 14 Years By Brent Wilcox Signpost Assistant Sports Editor The current Weber team did what no other Wildcat team had done in 14 years as they took the ICAC football championship last Saturday, defeating the Snow Badgers 21-0. This was a fitting climax to the Wildcat's home schedule as they have shown more desire and talent than any Weber team for many years in piling up a 6-3 record. CALENDAR For Weeks of Nov. 20-Dec.

' 'f The Wildcats displayed a bal- anced attack Saturday as they rolled up 15 first downs and gained 338 yards compared with Snow's eight first downs and 102 rushing yards. Weber completely dominated the game except for a Badger thi-eat in the first few minutes. Snow penetrated to Weber's one yard line only to be held by the Wildcat's strong defensive line of Lynn Foxley, Gary Hansen, Joe Lalli, Ron Winegar and Lynn Hutchings. From that point Snow never got within the Weber 28 yard line. Looked Good Weber's previously weak pass defense looked very good as three interceptions were made and Snow backfield had a tough time completing any aerials. Weber scored first in the second quarter when Terry Van Vleet recovered a fumble on the Snow 25. The Backfield combination of Van Vleet, Brent Hancock, Lynn Cor-bridge and a "recuperating" Jim Mackay ripped through Snow's defense to the three yard line. On the first play, the powerful Mackay went over right tackle for the counter. Brent Hancock converted and the half-time score was Weber 7, Snow 0. Weber went right to work in the second half with the line and (Continued on Page G.) eber Officer Gains Position Donna Sparks, studentbody secretary, has been elected Utah's candidate for First National Vice-President of the College Club Section of the American Home Economics Association.

|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.|
