Sponsored by Phoenix and LaDianaeda, the traditional dance drew nearly 300 couples. Earlier in the evening a spe-cial concert of popular Christmas music was sponsored by Blue Key National Honor Fraternity in the WSC Fine Arts Center. Major vocal and instrumental groups of the music department presented numbers as well as being joined by the audience. Weber ltbj rnn rroo II1SVIY the constitution to the Senate, said "It is our contention that a college should provide social self-consciousness concerns of the day." "Commenting further about developements which have oc curred since that time, he said, "What logical reason for getting a majority of signatures on a petition can exist? When ever you have more than three groups, one has to be a minor, ity." Explaining further about the role of SDS on campus, he said, "We can count on 15 members, the only thing required by the Queen Sandra, a sophomore, is majoring in elementary edu. cation while King John, also a sophomore, is centering his stud-ies in political science. Chosen to preside as attendants were Shirlene Dehart, Linda Jeppson, Glen Curtis and Curtis Jackson. Decorations for the dance, the theme of which was "Incense of Peppermint," included trees with yarn, candy and other decor, ations, family home scene with a marble fireplace, and a large glass chandlier. State College, Ogden, Utah 84403 constitution is enough people to insure success. We have a relationship with the liberal stu-dent group and the black stu. dent union. Although, we have different concerns, on some is. sues we stand united." "In the nation," he said, "there are ten minor factions, three major factions, each is dissimiliar. To say they are the same, to say they have the same goals is absurd. There is no comparison between the Univer. sity of Utah and Weber State College. "Here we would be educa. ting the community, etc., to serve as peers." "Although people are aware of the notorious side of SDS, are they aware of the beneficial? SDS started the Misslssippifree-dom liberation party, which is bringing equality in the south. Also in action in the northern urban slums, grass root are programs. SDS was one of the first to bring the evils of the war in Viet Nam to publicity." "Some would choose to build a monster out of nothing. " Speaking about the constitution on be-fore the senate, he said, At first it was a sort of psychological test for mentality in the area. O riginally it started fallaciously, "we are now thoroughly com-mitted."Spouse cards get price hike In an early morning meeting last quarter the Senate passed a bill which raises the spouse card from five dollars a quarter to twenty dollars per year. The spouse card, formerly five dollars for fall quarter, ten dollars for winter and spring quarter, was boosted to twenty dollars for the year if purchased fall quarter, fifteen dollars if pur. chased winter quarter. Bob Barclay, sponsor of the bill said, "we raise spouse cards to equal the average students fees." Commenting as to the purpose of the change, he indicated that in looking over the basketball seat, ing arrangement, it became apparent that it wasn't fair to have 8,000 students, 2,000 seats, and students not able to find seats when wives are "sitting for pen. nies." "I feel spouse cards shouldbe eliminated," he said, priority of seats doesn't justify them." Noting that the problem exists only for basketball seating, he said "Whenever we get more seats, I'll work with them. I'm not against married men, I'm married myself." The Senate investigations committee had also questioned the situation, but had not begun work yet, so the Barclay bill was used. "The bill was rushed through by a Senate who are either married or in love." I feel that spouse cards should eventually be eliminated," he said. a Col.

|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.|
