mv lifter OGDEN, UTAH February 3, I 967 Y-Americans Performance Today at 11 A student group from Brigham Young University, the "Y Americans," will present a traveling variety show today at 11:00 a.m. in the Fine Arts auditorium. This program is important to the students of Weber State College not only as an hour of fine entertainment, but as the beginning of our own traveling variety shows. The "Y Americans" took their show to Utah State yesterday as a part of the exchange program which will involve B.Y.U. and U.S.U. and Weber State. In May, Weber will travel to Logan with a sample of their talent, and Utah State will visit the Wildcats in return. Because of the Y's full schedule, Weber will save its visit to Provo until next year. By then, all the shows will be "on the road." ' Activities Vice President, Clifford Vellinga, said a committee has been recently formed to head the organization of two or three variety shows which will be scheduled to entertain not only at the two exchange unlvetsities, but also at the local high schools. Bill Packer has been chosen to head this committee. On March 22, the program directors of the three institutionswill meet in Provo to schedule exchange assemblies for the coming year. These assemblies will not only be an opportunity for the college, but also for the individuals who participate. Many of the participants In past BYU variety shows have gained the experience they needed to go professional. Students who are interested in the coming exchange shows should contact either Bill Packer orClif-ford Vellinga.

Clubs Forfeit Songfest Trophy No sweepstakes trophy was a-warded for Songfest this year because of a violation of contest rules, Dean of Men. . Rolfe Kerr announced Wednesday. Delta Phi Kappa received the first place trophy and Phoenix received second place In the judging. Following a meeting of officers from both clubs, it was agreed that the clubs could keep the first and second place trophies, but the sweepstakes trophy would not be awarded to either group. "A lack of understanding and clarification of the rules led to misinterpretation of the rules by the groups and sponsors," Dean Kerr said. "Both clubs realize that they did not entirely comply with all the rules, so they jointly agreed to not award the sweepstakes trophy this year," said Dean Kerr. Delta Phi had several participants who were academically Ineligible and Phoenix violated some of the competition rules, according to Kerr. "None of the violations were intentional," be said. "Both clubs are looking forward to a bigger and better Songfest next year," Kerr said. Phoenix President Perry Perea said despite the fact that Delta Phi has won the last two years, "we are welcoming the competition again next year. Otyokwa won the women's division trophy. Executive Council Prohibits Use of Outside Dancers The Weber State Music Department will not be allowed to use dancers from the University of Utah or Salt Lake City in "Carmen."The Executive Council passed a resolution Tuesday prohibiting ballet dancers from the University of Utah or Salt Lake to participate in the opera. Fine Arts Center Director, Daniel Martino said the reason dancers from the University are being used Is that there are not enough interested students at Weber State - to fill the roles. "We conducted twotryoutsatthe end of last quarter and only three students show up," he said. "We are using about 10 persons who are students and non-students from Salt Lake to fill these roles," Martino said. Studentbody officer Clifford Vellinga said that he had received several reports from students who are participating but have been rel-"egated to minor roles behind the outside dancers. "This is not good for the morale of our students," Vellinga said. One reason for the lack of students offering to participate in "Carmen" is the Orchisis presentation a week before the opera. Many Weber State dancers are Involved with Orchisis and do not have time to participate in both productions. "It is unfortunate that the two performances are scheduled so closely together," Martino said. WSC Registrar MiltonC.Mech-am pointed out that the catalog does not allow students who are not registered at 'Weber to participate in extra curricular activities such as "Carmen." "The opera is not really an extra curricular activity if you consider that students are being given credits for participating in the opera," said Martino. Studentbody President Jack B. Suttlemyre pointed out that If the opera is not an extra curricular 'Carnival1 "The Great Society" is the theme of the 1967 Snow Carnival at Weber State College Feb. 8 to Feb. 9. Snow sculpturing by the fraternities and sororities will be held Thursday afternoon, with the "Torchlight Parade" and coronation of the "Snow King and Snow Queen" later that evening. Studentbody president Jack Suttlemyre said the sculpturing contest will be held on campus, provided there is sufficient snow on the lower squad. The competition will be held at the bottom of Wildcat run at Snow Basin if the sculpturing cannot be held on campus. - Approximately 150 skiers will participate in the Torchlight Parade at 7 p.m. Thursday, withfuses lighting a double snake chain down the slopes of Bear Hollow to the bottom of Snow Basin lodge. Try-outs for the parade will be held on School Hill at 1 p.m. today for those wishing to par activity, then it should not tie receiving student funds. The general consensus of the council was that Weber State productions should be performed by Weber State students. "We need to look into the Theatre Department also and get the policy straightened out regarding the use of outside personnel inthreatre productions also," Suttlemyre said. "As far as the Executive Council Is concerned, It is recommended that persons from areas other than Weber State not be allowed to participate In "Carmen." Concert-Dance Set for Thursday Are you the one student In five who hasn't purchased his ticket to the Lettermen concert yet?

|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.|
