"Romeo and Juliet" is a "young man's play," probably composed when Shakespeare was nearly thirty. It was first produced in 1595. Critics say that the play is written with the fervor of one who has experienced the passion of young lave. But, since Shakespeare's life remains a mystery in many areas, no one can be certain. It is a fact however, that the plot of "Romeo and Juliet" originated in an Italian short story, as did many of the other Elizabethan plays. The story, in one version, was given an historical setting in Verona, Italy, around 1303. From the Italia it was translated first to French and finally into English in 1562, when Arthur Brookes composed the long narrative poem "The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet." It is from this poem that Shakespeare drew his essential themes. Whatever the source and inspiration, Shakespeare's play took its place as the popular story of love that young men and women have cherished from that day until this. Some thirty-six persons have been selected by the director to appear in the production. They include experienced WSC thespi-ans, professional dancers, vocalists, musicians, high school students and housewives. erkley Plains lectuire ' The final lecture on "The Religious Situation: 1968" will be presented today at 11 a.m. in the WSC Fine Arts Center auditorium for the third annual "Religious Emphasis Week." Dr. Rocco Caporale of the University of California at Berkley will lecture on the topic, "Dilemmas of Modernization of Christianity." He will be the fifth in a series of speakers sponsored during the week by the WSC Films andLect-ures Committee which has included Dr. Jennings G. Olsen, WSC professor of philosophy and anthropology; Rev. Hugh Gilli-lan of the Unitarian Church, Salt Lake City; Rabbi Bernard Frankel, spiritual leader of the B'nai Israel, Salt Lake City and Dr. Henry Eyring, professor of chemistry and metallurgy of the University of Utah. "Religious Existentialism" was the subject of the speech given by Dr. Olsen on Monday for the first speech of the Religious Forum Week. Dr. Olsen tried to give two ma in definitions; what is the meaning of religious and what is Existentialsim. "There is ambiguity surrounding religion," said Olsen, "there were many different ideas as to what religious means but none of them are really right." Some of the questons that come up in trying to define religious is: are there boundaries? Is religion a help or a menace? Is It possible to understand?, and is religion seen? Dr. . Olsen said that there were four major commitments about religion. They are: 1. Irrational religion is false religion. 2. The search for self-identity is natural. 3. Most all of religious history is sad and dreary. 4. The uses of freedom Is center of personal exlstance. There are four difficulties In defining Existentialism. C u r re nt rent writers are not interested in defining it. - Little agreement as to who Is in and who is out. - Historians are not sure where Existentialism begins. - There are two forms of knowledge; objective knowledge and personal knowledge and Exsitentialistic writers use the second form where they are really no definitions that can be used. Exsitentialism is a method of intrepetation and understanding exsistance. Exsitentialism may mean or refer to a knowledge of human existance itself. It also might mean or refer to our awareness of some special, criticle e-vent in our lives. Dr. Eyring was guest speaker Wednesday as part of Religious Emphasis Week. He is a graduate of the Univ. of Arizona and has taught at Princeton. Dr. Eyring believes that there is a supreme intelligence in the universe and the worships that intlli-gence. To him, God is wise, thinking, compassionate, and aware of the universe. "God is trying to make something out of you and me. Man has the right to choose and sins are mistakes, but God gives that option to man. You will always have pof sin as long as you have a choice." explained Dr. Eyring. According to Dr. Eyring, the greatest feeling God gives Is that one is not alone in the world; that God is near. God Is kindly disposed. "Just as universities and colleges are useful, religions are useful: there is a place and need for both," he said. There is a need in man for an organization and God is Interested in all these religions." God doesn't need religion; man does. And there Is good in every church," Dr. Eyring further stated. He went on to say that God is perfect. "The big mistake In Church is to let people in it. The rest after that you can take or leave." "If a man is on the wrong track, God will help and convince him of the right." Dr. Eyring said. As a believer in revealed re-ligon, he believes that Brigham Young was convinced, and that the same authority turned Paul from the foremost Christian persecuter to the foremost Christian communicator. Dr. Eyring further explained that he is a believer in the pre-exlstance, and of life after death where man will be accountable for all his sins on earth. "This is how man man looks at the world he lives in," he concluded and pointed out that all men are entitled to their own opinions and views.

|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.|
