Wtbtx Volume 28 No. 13 January 24, 196 UB Hosts All In Wild Times Tomorrow Eve by Carmen Rodriquez Anyone for a little gambling? Or, perhaps a couple of cocktails will do the trick. Better still, how about a trip across the border for one of those quick Tijuana marriages? Well, it's now possible to do all these things at the 7th annual Union Building party happening on Saturday, January 2D. Starting from 8 p.m. until midnight, students can stomp in casual, school apparel to the rhythm of the two live bands, "The Determined" and the "Exchequers". But, this isn't all. If anyone has ever wanted to go around the world for only 75 cents, which is all that this party costs, then now is the time to do it. First of all, for that Italian atmosphere, free pizza and cocktails (cokes and 7 UP's) will be given right in the cafeteria. Then, for that French tour, no one can leave until the local night club is visited where there will be presented four shows representing semi-professional talent. But many people will also want to try their hand at Roulette, Crapps, "21", or perhaps blackjack; playing of course, with all the free money that is given at the door. Mexico is next, where a quickie Tijuana marriage will be performed for all couples who wish it. Everything will be done quite like the real thing, with wedding rings and the certificates to go with the ceremonies. Afterwards, the couples can return to the states where they can visit the Inauguration room or perhaps play billiards or go bowling, free of charge, from 9 p.m. on. The climax of this party will be when Miss Weber State College, Jeanne Nowak, cuts the birthday cake and gives everyone a piece of it. This year's U.B. birthday party with the theme "Around the World in a T.U.B.'' was organized by the Special Events CommitteeChair-man, Rick Murray. GRADUATION Deadline for graduation applications, for Weber Sfate College students expecting to praduote in June, been set for February 15. Milton C. Mecham, dean of admissions and records said today that all senior students who do not apply for gradu-tion by Feb. 1 5 will not be able to go through the spring graduation ceremonies. "We must do this, he said, "in order that the graduation committee may review all students' program of study. If the student needs additional classes he will then be able to take care of it during spring quarter." Ideally, however, students should apply for graduation during the spring quarter of thrir junior year. 'Then, if major adjustments are necessary," he noted, "the student has an entire year to take courses of study he may need." A $5 graduation fee must accompany each application. Students are also asked to register with the Placement Bureau on campus concerning post-graduation employment. , .Hi .

After losing four wars with Israel, a common statement was echoed by Dr. Mayfield, "The Egyptians are putting back-up lights on their tanks." Dr. Mayfield stated that a "just solution for both sides was impossible." He felt this situation existed because both sides lack a clear understanding of each other. In Dr. Mayfield's opinion the Arabs resent the establishment of Israel because it geographically splits the Arabs. Although the Arab nations have remained split for centuries, they harbor the belief that Israel was established by the western world to maintain this split. "Time is running out for Israel," offered Dr. Mayfield. He continued, "Israel will not be able to win a nuclear war. She has ostrascized the moderate elements." The attack on Beirut, Lebanon, the most neutral Arab state, was definitely wrong in his opinion. This was the only place where meaningful dialogue could have been possible. "Israel has failed to make a distinction between government policies and guerrilla policies. The Arab governments have control over these forces," emphasized Dr. Mayfield. He furthered with the example that "King Hussein doesn't control the guerrilla forces in Jordan." what is the solution? on both sides."

|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.|
