The play, shown in six scenes, is a poetic tragedy depicting the conflict between Elizabeth I of England, and Mary, Queen of Scots, over the right to the throne of England. Although Mary is already condemned to die when the play opens, the court procedures, the pleas of Mary, and the confrontation scene between the two queens, make the play stirring dramatic work. It was written by the German playwright Friedrich von Schiller, one of the last plays before his death. It is considered by some authorities to be his most significant literary work. It was produced by Sir Tyron Guthrie at the Phoenix Theatre in New York in 1957, and since that time has- been on a two-year transcontinental tour, and been twice on television starring Eva Le Gal- lienne and Irene Worth. Ex-Officio Bill Overruled by Student Senate The student Senate passed one bill and defeated another in the regular meeting Monday night. The first bill, sponsored by Speaker Jerry Nebeker, would give ex-officio senate membership to ASWSC president, activities vice president, and business and finance vice president. The first vice president is already an ex-officio member and speaker under the constitution. In presenting the bill, Nebeker said student officers felt membership on the Senate would alleviate lack of communication and create a friendlier atmosphere between executive and legislative branches. Senator Cheryl Lorenc said. "Under this bill, wc would relinquish some of our rights unnecessarily. The officers are perfectly welcome to visit the Senate without this legislation." Nebeker, the only senator to speak in favor of the bill, said it would ha.ve to be sent to committee. Senator Heffernan moved that rules be suspended. A vote was taken, and the bill was overwhelmingly defeated. The second bill introduced by the speaker, proposed establishment of a student government coordinating council. The rules were again suspended and the bill was unanimously .passed. In other senate business. F. L. Chases was approved as junior supreme court justice. The ways and means committee recommended refusal of a $50 ncreascd budget appropriation for International Relations Club. Chairman Ron Parker, said the student reserve of $5,604 must be maintained to underwrite the total student budget of $79,000. Senators approved the recommendation.Nebeker informed the Senate that 1.000 yearbook pictures are being taken free, and no money has been appropriated for the nYrvnrlitnro The senators questioned Bob Hunter, yearbook, editor, about the situation, but he had no comment. Nebeker assigned the problem to the ways and means fnr further study The play is considered qusi-historical since some of the scenes, namely the confrontation scene, are not historically accurate. Schiller's extensive historical studies, and his creativity, enabled him to write these scenes. The set that will be used has been completely designed by David Barber, a senior majoring in theatre arts. This is the first time that a WSC student has been given this opportunity. Mrs. Ferron Nebeker, costume mistress, has been in charge of the elaborate costumes that will be used. The costumes are accurate of this Elizabethan era:-flowing gowns, jeweled bodices, ruffs, etc. She has been assisted by Ann Thomas, DeAnna Martin and Kathleen Johns.

|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.|
