Dr. Monson developed the commonality of religion in all cultures and listed the purposes of religion. He then went on to discuss how religion has been challenged in the western world and is on the defensive. The problem of the challenge to religion is the challenge of methodology. Science, since the 15th Century, through Freudian psychoanalysis and science today serves basically the same purposes as religion. Dr. Monson stated that human reasoning is being given greater importance today and man's tendency is to .verify rather than to accept authoritative theory. Dr. Monson challenged the audience to examine the religions being presented during Religious Emphasis Week and question what religion has to offer during the 20th Century, and what is relevant today.Religious Emphasis Week was presented in order that the students may gain a better understanding of religion. The Latter-day Saint religion, the Buddhist, the protestant religions have been emphasized this past week. And this afternoon the Catholic speaker, Monsignor Kennedy, will speak on Catholicism. WSC STAGES TALENT SHOW The annual WSC Talent Show will be staged March 31 in the Ogden High auditorium, reports Alan Dayley, dean of men. Four women's clubs and three men's organizations will participate.Sponsored by the AMS and AWS, the event will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is 25 cents a person. Entrants will be judged on over-all theme, excellence of performance, originality, interest to audience, and costuming, lighting, and special effects. The following rules for the Talent Show have been released by the Dean of Student's office: The Talent Show is open to any and all organizations on Weber State College campus. All participants must be active members of the organization and in good standing. A copy of the script, the title of the act, the name of the club president, and a list of all participating and all excused members must be turned into the Dean's Office by 3 p.m. March 24. Any club that does not turn this in on time will be ineligible to participate. Use of professional or outside help in preparation for the presentation is to be used at the discretion of the group or organization as needed. Each group shall have ten (10) minutes for the actual presentation with two (2) minutes leeway for the personnel to leave the stage. Maximum of twelve (12) minutes, minimum of (8) minutes. The percentage of group members (not total members) participating in the activity is one of the criteria of excellence. For example, a club of 15 with 12 members participating has a percentage of 60. On the other hand, a club of 53 with 30 members participating has a percentage lower even though more are participating.Nothing obscene, irregular, unpatriotic, or negative should be used as a motif, theme, joke, or part. Each group must have at least three practices before the Talent Show is presented to the public. Each group must be responsible for putting its properties on and taking its properties quietly off the stage. The school will not assume responsibility for any property or properties borrowed or used by any group, for any clothing or material lost, or for any accident incurred during the progress of the Talent Show or in the practice thereof. It is understood that good judgment will be used in the selection of all performances. The theme should be entertaining, uplifting, and of good taste. The judges will be chosen, as far as possible, from those having no connection with groups participating, in college administration, staff, or faculty. They will be selected for their knowledge of music, dance, speech, and the other factors that go for making good entertainment.

|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.|
