Let's All Be There One of the Homecoming highlights will be the Homecoming Parade. In celebration of the Diamond Jubilee, eight bands, old cars, and 14 floats will parade down Washington Blvd. from 28th to 21st St. The floats are entered by various clubs and organizations. Each group has to finance and build its own float with no outside help. The eight bands are from local schools, and the old cars are entered by the alumni. The Queen will have her own float. A trophy will be given for the best float in three divisions: men's, women's, and special division.Police cooperation is very good. They will block off Washington during the parade and stop interruptions. We owe them a vote of thanks. Everything considered, this probably will be one of the best parades Weber State has had. It may even surpass the Pioneer Days Parade, so everybody Come! J' : ' j The Biggest Ever Weber State College Alumni Association holds its annual banquet Oct. 11 at 7 :30 p.m. in the Union cafeteria and the alums expect the event to be the "biggest ever." "The alumni directors are aware that this is the year Weber State adds its senior class to become a full four-year college, plus the fact it is the year of the diamond jubilee," said Dean Hurst, alumni president. "Accordingly, we are doing our Next Week's Events For the Week of October 14-19, 1963 Monday, Oct.

Banquet tickets have been mailed, along with a special alumni magazine, to as many former Weber students as possible. Mr. Hurst said that due to an imperfect alumni mailing list, many grads may not receive the mailing. "Regardless of whether alums get the magazine, they are invited to the banquet," he added. Tickets may be had at the cashier's office in the social Science Building, or from any alumni board member, or at the door banquet night. They cost $2.75 each. Jeannette Morrell, assistant professor of English at Brigham Young University, and a former teacher at Weber, will be on the program, which will feature informal numbers. No major talks are scheduled. Miss Morrell often entertains with humorous readings, the alumni president said. She is an Ogden native and well known in the area. Election of new board members will be an item of business. "The emphasis will be on informal activities, and we hope as many alumni as can will arrive well ahead of the banquet hour to renew their associations and make this a real reunion of former Weber students," Mr. Hurst added. Coronation Ball The Coronation Ball starred the liX3 Homecoming Week with an air of majestic elegance. The new queen, Nadine Cox of Lambda Delta Sigma, made her entrance down the stairway of honor and trod upon the red carpet on her way to beginning her reign. She was presented with royal robes and was crowned by last year's queen, Mrs. Blythe Southern Moore, while former queens paid her homage from their places of honor. Miss Cox was seated on a red and gold throne and attended by Joan Spackman, Excelsior, and Trudy Evans, Otyokwa. The hall was decorated with red satin, gold, and mirrors. Music was furnished by the Stardusters who played courageously. The Bellshanny Men put on an outstanding performance for intermission and added a smoothly professional touch to the activities. Annual W Hike Friday The Flaming W, Weber State's annual hike will take place on October 11 at 7:30. Students will meet in the games area of the Union Building. "It is a tradition every year for Homecoming Week," explained Miss Judy Jeppson, Activities Vice President. "We hike up the mountains, towards the W and set it aflame." This will be done with lights. Five gallons of diesel will be taken up for a big bonfire which will be started under the "W". "Come prepared in hiking clothes," Miss Jeppson advised, "and remember to bring clothes hangers for roasting hot-dogs." All students are invited to take part in this event. It is expected that more than 1,000 will beparticipating. Attention! Seniors Petitions will be received for representatives to a new Senior Council. All seniors desiring a position on this council are requested to turn a petition in at the main desk of the Union Building with the signatures of 15 fellow seniors. The final date for turning these petitions in will be Thursday, October 17.

|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.|
