Hoardes of yellow busses descended upon the campus last friday, releasing scores of earnest debators, who penetrated every corner of the college during the next two days. The students filled available facilities at Weber State Friday and Saturday during the annual Debate tournament. One thousand, seventy three High school students representing seventy-four schools participated in the thirty-third annual event started and named after Dr. Leland Monson, a former proffessor of WSC. Classes for college students were cancelled from noon on throughout the rest of the day to make room for the debaters.

Chorale Trip Halted, Ends Student's Feud The WSC Chorale will not make a singing tour of southern Utah according to an administrative spokesman. The announcement by Helmut Hofmann, Academic Vice President, to the student Senate last Monday could bring an end to the Senate -Chorale feud over funds. The Senate and Chorale have been at loggerheads for several weeks over a funding request by the Chorale. The Chorale had planned to take a trip to southern Utah, but the Senate has refused to provide the funds. Dr. Hofmann told the Senators that future trouble of this kind could be avoided. He suggested that the Senate deal directly with the department heads, instead of the organizations. Hofmann felt that this would also avoid competitive lobbying for money by different departmental groups. Dr. Hofmann told the Senators that the Faculty Senate wants to give them more responsibility. However, noted Dr. Hofmann, the faculty was wondering what the students had done for them lately. He did not elaborate on the subject. Dr. Hofmann also reported that WSC could now support senate bill 10. The adminstration felt that amendments to the bill had made it more acceptable. He explained that these amendments had the affect of weakening the central board and helping Weber. In other business an English proficiency exam was discussed. David Terry, assistant professor of Microbiology, asked for Senate help in pushing the exam. Terry explained that many students graduate from college without being able to communicate in writing. Mr. Terry felt that an English exam in the jusior year for all students would weed out those who need help. Students who were weak in English would be required to take an extra course in that subject. Howard Collett, Legislative Vice President, introduced an amendment to the school constitution. The amendment would allow two faculty representatives to be ex-officio members of the student Senate. The Senate in final action, passed a resolution on basketball seating. The resolution directed Collett to send a memo to the athletic department asking that seating regulations be enforced more strictly. Some Senators felt that too many unauthorized people were getting into the student section during games. Collett said he would send the memo right away. There will be no Senate meeting next week. Today Dr. Washburn The trust also supports an annual award of $500 to a Weber State College faculty member to be known as the Distinguished Faculty Honors Lecture for pursuit of excellence. This will be announced in April and the faculty member will speak April 11. Publication of the two speeches each year will be supported by the trust fund. "This honors program will bring to the Ogden area a greater cul tural opportunity benefitting not only the students and faculty at Weber State but the community as well," said Dr. Hofmann. Dr. Washbirrn will speak on "Anthropology and the Meaning of a Liberal Education." Students registered for convocation credits may fill out attendance slips on this lecture.

|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.|
