WEBER COLLEGE SIGNPOST Vol. 2 No. 5 October 28, 1960 OGDEN, UTAH LADY IN THE TUB Students Take Stand On The Short Skirt Issue By Mary Ellen Ryan ' Signpost Staff Writer QUESTION: Do you like the new short skirts? "I think they're awful and suggestive," said Karen Nielson. "Of course moderation is the key word." Hugh Sloan's comment was rather emphatic "I like "em!" Clare Harris likes them too, as long as they're on the knee and Debaters Travel To Pasco Tourney Nine students represented Weber College this week at the first debate tournament of the year at Columbia Basin College in Pasco, Washington. E. Carl Green, assistant debate coach, and Gerald Grove, also assisting with debate accompanied the students who left in the student body car last Wednesday. All but one of the students will participate in the debate along with students from schools throughout the west. The topic for debate will be, "Resolve, That the U.S. Should Adopt a Program of Compulsory Health Insurance for All Citizens." After the debate each student will enter at least two of the other events which will include: original oratories, extemporaneous speaking, interpretive reading, impromptu, and general campaign speaking. Trophies will be presented to the winners. The climax of the debating activities will be the national Phi Rho Pi tournament next April. Heating Tunnels Near Completion Weber College's parking lot which has been torn up for the last few months will soon be covered again. In the next few weeks the tunnel which houses some of Weber's utilities will be near completion. Tunnels just like this one run all over the college campus carrying the water, electricity, phone, and other utilities to the different buildings. Already they have begun to fill in the road way so that cars will soon be able to travel over it. It won't be long before we will have through traffic and parking again. not above it. .. . . "Any higher and they bother me." Mike Farrell couldn't decide Whether they could or couldn't get too short, "but to the bottom of the knees is short enough; it still shows off the prettiest part of the legs." "I really like them if you can wear them," was Carol Cope's comment. "But then, if they get to be the rage, everyone will wear them whether they look good or not." Max Evans thinks they're a little too high. "They should come to the middle of the knees, not the thighs." Vicky Baird thinks they're OK. "Just as long as they don't go above the knees, if they're shorter it's embarrassing for all concerned, especially when the wearer bends over." "It depends, if the girl has a good figure, she's pretty in them; if not, she shouldn't wear them," was Paris Iranfar's answer. Steve Stevenson "No, I think they're unbecoming." "I think they're flattering to girls' legs as long as they're not too-o-o short," said KarinBork-Iund. B By Cathy Kerr, Signpost Staff Writer The annual Weber College humanities division assembly, featuring a film on the crucial importance of moral rearmament, will be held this morning at 11 in the Moench auditorium of the lower campus. "The film is part of a most tremendous movement' to bring the world out of moral chaos, and we hope the auditorium will be filled to capacity," Dr. Leland Monson, chairman of the Division of Hu manities, said today. The color film, titled, "Congo lese High Commissioners and U.N. Troops See Freedom," will be about Africa and will stress what is being done to help those un committed nations fco understand the ideology of the western world and the fight against communism. The film was put out by Moral Rearmament which is a movement organized in 1947 by Dr. Frank Buckman in Caux, Switzerland. MRA believes that the only way to accomplish thier purpose, which is to preserve the freedom of the western world against commun ism, is by placing emphasis on four moral standards. These stan dards, which are the basis for the whole movement, are: abso lute honesty, absolute purity, absolute unselfishness and absolute love. A main part of the MRA plan to . bring about this freedom is the distribution of many carloads of pamphlets and various types of literature to countries throughout the world including Cuba and South America. The headquarters for this organization is now located inMichigan.

|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.|
