Opening Night Big Success Anyone who missed "Golden Fleecing" missed one of the funniest plays that Weber College has ever produced.. Good Acting The acting was very well done with emphasis on the little points that really make a play. AH of the characters were "living" their warts. Max Brown was especially qjcod in his part as Fergie Howard. Monty Shupe was equally good in his part as the naive scientist. Adds Spice Both of the feminine leads were excellently done by Effie Dav-lantes as Ann Knudsen and Diane Healey as Julie. A. J. Feeney as Admiral Finch lent spice to the whole production. Also for funny leads credit must go to Orlan Owen as Beau Gillian and Dan De Groot as Pete De Lucco. Supporting Cast The supporting cast was very well handled by Rat Schellhorn as the porter, Dennis Read as the waiter, Sam La Baron as Benjamin Dane, Russ Willowby as Taylor, and the two shore patrol men played by Rolan Campbell and Pete Galovan.

|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.|
