JLILJU Publication of Year Book Now Assured Book To Be of High Order After months of indecision concerning- whether or not an acorn should be published it has at last been decided that the greatest mistake the student body could make would be to let the Acorn die out, I even for one year. The stu-l dent organization is small and consequently the student i fund is small, but now that' the student body as a whole1 seems to desire an Acorn, it: is believed that the financial, obligation can be met. Now that the decision has been rendered the staff is working hard planning the book and' seeing that its contents are of i the highest order. I The book will have a leather cover, will be well bound, and the paper will be of excellent quality. TheArt work will be ieatured this year;! there will be many snappy! cartoons. Mr. Cooley, artist and cartoonist, is working, hard to keep this part up to standard. Robert Burton, feature editor is working with Mr. Cooley in the writing and cartooning of feature articles, snappy stories, and comical events. Mr. Cooley and Mr. Burton have both had experience in this work and their part in the book is expected to be of the very highest order. We expect the snaps to be better than ever before. Ilcber Jacobs has had two years experience in snap shot work and although he has missed some events of interest, due to the delay, we know that if the students will support him the snap section will be very interesting, a There will be original features throughout this years book. Although there will be no deviations from the general plan of the book, certain parts will be featured differently.If the students will support the staff and do their part in the producion of the year book by subscribing for the book, having pictures taken when asked, and aiding with the snap shots the book will be out on time. Short Story, Poem and Essay Contest A new quarter is about to dawn in Weber. Among the. attendant things to be re- membcrcd don't forget, students, the Douglas contest.1 This is open to the whole col-j lege student body. Mrs Orsen, Douglas offers a prize of S20 for the best poem; 15 for the best short-story; and $15 for the best essay. No regulation is made as to the length or subject. The contest closes March 2nd English students could use their regular work in this contest. Others could dig out old themes or poems and work them over. This contest is open to all college students. I No man ever loved a woman on account of herefficiency. SUPERINTEND ENT BENNION VISITS WEBER COLLEGE Superintendent Adam S. Bennion visited Weber College February 2. He was conducted through the college building and the new Weber Gym by President Tracy. Superintendent Bennion said, "Improvements will be made in the Weber College building. The auditorium will be redecorated, reseated, and a new stage with dressing rooms will be erected." The science laboratories will be enlarged and more e-quipment will be purchased. Additional ground will be secured for an athletic field. The faculty will be enlarged and new departments will be added. j These things will be accomplished before school begins next fall." An effort will be made to secure all of the lots, now occupied by houses, on the College block. If this can be done the students will be able to attain a better athletic standing because of better facilities. The students have been handicapped because they had no athletic field. The campus will be beauti fied by enlarged lawns, flowers, and ornamental shrubs. Then Ogden will be proud of Weber College. A Student's Viewpoint Of The English Department ATTENTION! Oh Ye Instructors of English. I am an English studen and consider myself as being thoroughly able to give a few impressions of the English department as well as hints or suggestions. English is well it is just a a Thing, overwhelmingly conspicuous whether one sleeps, eats or walks; whether he thinks, feels or does. To grapple with English and to conquer it is to merit the highest badges of honor for Bravery. To the instructors (not mentioning any names) of the English Department, let one who has weathered many downpours of English assignments give a few instructions. First and foremost on the bill of fare, make a careful study of pages 184-185 in Bennets "School Efficiency." (You can get one from Mr. Winsor.) Second, before this perusal has become clouded, apply the several principles found therein. Of course it will be comparatively easy matter for the principles are numbered. Calvin S. "Where is Ruby?" Ruth D. "She has gone home." Calvin S. "When do you expect her back?" Ruth D. "She isn't being shipped in sections." WEBER STUDENTS OBSERVE WILSON .MEMORIAL Reverend C. C. Wilson Delivers Inspirational Address Before Student Body In the devotional exercises, on Wednesday, February 6, Weber College faculty and student body paid tribute to the memory of Woodrow Wilson. The exercises commenced with a contralto solo by Mrs. Edna Crowther Ririe, "Rest in the Lord," accompanied by 1 Mrs. David J. Wilson. Pray-I er then was offered by Clar-j ence Brown, a member of the ! student body. This was fol lowed by another solo by Mrs. Ririe. The remainder of the time was given to Rev erend C. C. Wilson, pastor of the Congregational Church, who delivered a splendid address on the life and attributes of the "War President." He expressed appreciation for the opportunity of speaking of the life of President Wilson, and continued with a brief review of the outstand- j ing incidents of his life. In substance his speech was: i Woodrow Wilson was born I December 27, 1856, of Scotch and Irish parentage. His father was for twelve years a , pastor in the Presbyterian , Church in Georgia and rear-. ed his son to a devout mem-! ber of that church. In his younger life he fos- tered the idea of becoming a lawyer, but he proved to be a failure, and was forced to take down his sign. He then went to Princeton University where he studied history and political science and was editor of the school paper for one year. After completing his course hers he secured a position as a teacher in the Critemore College. He also taught for a while in Connecticut, and from there he was called to teach political science at Princeton. He became president of Princeton, here he first demonstrated his executive ability; for at that time the school was governed by a number of social clubs. IVfr Wilson Hissnlvprl thpsp and re-established the educa-! tional ideals of the school.! The school board of trustees, 'accepted an appropriation of 1 $3,000,000 from some wealthy 'business men for the purpose iof building a new fraternity' 'building, and as this was against the will the President Wilson, he resig'ned. In 1910 he was a college professor I I without a job. Two years la-; , ter he was elected President; of the United States, which is ' the greatest honor any man could wish to attain. Even if the war had never broken (out President Wilson would have been considered one of , the great American Presi-1 dents, for among other things' I he succeeded in reducing the I tariff and established a sys-j : tern of Federal Loan Banks in the United States. 1 Directly after he was re-1 elected over Mr. Hughes, he declared war against Germany and succeeded in win-' ning the greatest war of all history. His policy had been to prevent the United States' (Continued on Page 3) WEBER COLLEGE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1924. Slow Game Closes Basketball Season WEBER LOSES LAST GAME OF SEASON 2916 Friday February 14, the Weber hoop team journeyed to Salt Lake City to do battle with the L. D. S. In a sort of mental stupor they departed without their ball, score book or gun. A quiet, warm afternoon, an empty echoing hall, and no cheering for or against, all served to increase the feeling of de presion; that seemed everywhere present. The game was slow, and uninteresting. The mental enthusiasm necessary to call forth the best efforts of the players had been left back, at Weber with the other paraphenelia (if it can be said there was any here that day. We doubt if there was.) At the end, the score read 29 to 16 for L. D. S. , After the game the team were the guests of the Student Body President and members of the Sigma Phi Fraternity of the University of Utah at the University. The L. D. S. Weber game was the last of the season. Doctor Lind's Rock Reapers Reconvene Because of pQor weather conditions prevailing during the greater part of the winter quarter Doctor Lind was loath to call a rock seeking expedition into action. But since the snow has practically disappeared, his anxiety has been renewed. Disregarding the sea of mud that still covered "la terre" Doctor Lind said, "be prepared to go on a field trip any and every day during good weather." This inviting epithet drew shrieks of glee from the fortunate Rockologists and many of them expresed wishes to depart speedily. Accordingly the leader set Wednesday February 13, apart for the eventful day. As per request the members of the expedition met at the end of 25th Street car line at 2 P. M. and began their journey, skating through the mud as best they could. Judging from appearance many of the explorers were bent upon capturing the "North Post." It happened however, that they scanned the distant peaks, mapped and sketched the formations and deformations. Then they sneaked by the mouth of Taylor's Canyon, touched upon the path leading to Waterfall Canyon, and then made a "bee line" for home. We asked one of the members what he saw on the trip; he said "rocks." Another bet there was water in the reservoirs. Van says the fault does not strike. And Gordon Lee claims he has found a mineral with a hardness of "12" because his head can scratch diamonds. This same Fact Finding Committee engaged in anoth er encounter with rocks, formations, and faults last Tues-; day afternoon. This time however, they approached them with Fords, etc. and did more effective work. Many a family tree has produced a nut, a lemon, and a peach at the same time. Basketball Team Journeys North WAILS OF WOE (By L. Wilkersen.) Thursday, January 24, our team journeyed to Rexburg, Idaho. They arrived in that thriving" metropolis at five-thirty in the evening, had supper and then went to the school to participate in the evenings' entertainment. First Wail. The game started with Hales center; Blackburn, left forward; Wilken-son, rigdit forward; Barker, right guard; and Parker, left guard. It continued this way until the first half of the last quarter, when Bramwell was substituted for Wilkenson. Weber held the lead in this game for approximately four minutes of the first quarter. After that Ricks had things their own way. The score was 47-20. Second Wail. We traveled all morning to get back to Pocatello, for the game with the Technical Institute of that city. We got as much lest as was possible, Then at six o'clock we all assembled at the station to see "Dutchman" Couch arrive. We gave him a hearty cheer and then thought our troubles over. When the game was about to start and the opposition galloped out on the floor we saw that it was to be the battle of our, lives to gain victory. This game started withi Couch forward; Bruno, forward; Nixon center; Wilkenson and Wilkenson, guards; Barker was substituted for the younger Wilkenson at the half and Wilkenson was again put in the lineup when Couch was removed for personals. The score was 43 to 23. The officiating was good. Third Wail. We took the O. S. L. to Cache Junction and there jumped on the Sagebrush Limited for Logan. We rode from noon till night, arriving in Logan in time to eat and get ready to play. Upon entering the hall we were greeted by friendly cheers of our B. Y. C. friends. We were welcomed with the cries of "robbers," "thieves," sneaks," etc. But we merely replied "Who went to Phoenix?" and the entire population of Logan tore its hair in rage. The game started with Hales, center; Couch and Wilkenson forwards; Barker and Parker, guards. Bramwell substituted for Barker, who was removed on account of personals. This game was a repetition of the game between the two schools on December the fifteenth. Hawley of B. Y. C. made several "first-downs" for his team before being removed from the game. We think that he will have to eat a little more before he plays again, if he expects to harm such a man as Sherman. At least we know that Dirty Delton was the man that caused his removal from the game. And Del only weighs 132, while Couch goes 200, more or less. The officiating in this game was of the first order and so we have no kick coming. We played our hardest, and we know that every team we have met knows that. Although the scores were large, we had live men on the floor. No one twinkled. WEBERITES MEET FIRST DEFEAT ON E FLOOR Sensational Band Selections and Snappy Yelling Add Greatly to the Spirit of the Occasion The Purple and White Bas-keteers suffered defeat Friday evening in a thrilling contest with B. Y. C. The closeness of the score during the first half of the game kept the spectators on their toes continually. Despite the unevenness of the score during the final periods, the game was one of the most sensational of the season. The enlarged Weber Band, directed by Professor Manning, succeeded in creating and maintaining throughout the game an intense patriotic feeling in all Weber supporters; while the peculiar maneuvers of Hcber Jacobs, in leading the Weber yells afforded great fun and amusement for the kiddies. The scientific method by which the B. Y. C. boys caged seeming impossible shots vas noteworthy. The work of Captain Hill, of the visitors, was one of the outstanding features of the game. The skill of his team in caging long shots brought the fans to their toes time and time again. The Wildcats, although on the short end of the score- during the later periods of the game, fought bravely until the last second.

This program bears out the statement "Music hath its charms," because the students were spellbound by the wonderful selections rendered by the quartet. The program was as follows:Prelude "Eligue" Prayer Junius Tribe Selections "Intermenszo" "Serenade", "Bercues", "Sara-vah."The quartet was invited to visit Weber more often. Slim said, (coming home), "If I had four bits now, J. D. Rockefeller's overcoat would not make me a vest." To Complete Course At University of Chicago SCOUT TROOP GIVES PROGRAM AT WEBER On Wednesday, February 13, the Headquarter Scout Troop gave a splendid program at the Weber devotional exercises. The program was given as follows: Prelude Loran Wheelwright.Invocation Lynn Church-well.Troop Song "That Old Gang of Mine." Sung by Troop. "Scout Oath." Ronald Tanner. "Scout Laws." Wendell Bramwell. Piano Solo Leroy Ferrin. Reading James Neil. French Horn and Piano Duet Sylvan Warner and Leroy Ferrin. Ford Stunt By the Troop. Why Headquarters Troop was Organized Talmage Boyd. Value of Scouting Scout Executive S. D. Young. The speakers spoke of the necessity of this work, and urged the college men to take an interest in it and help make -Ogden famous for its wonderful scouting organizations.The program was enjoyed by the students and faculty. The scouts were invited to come and render such wonderful program as often as they wished. Debating Teams Chosen, First Debate Mar. 14 As a supplement to all the forces established for the "rounding out" of the men and women of the college, the forsenic and musical activities have been provided. These consist of extemporaneous speaking contests, oratorical contests, dramatics, debating, andsolo, chorus, and operatic work in the department of music. Of these activities debating stands in a distinctive field. No other activity offers the same oportunity for the grasping of knowledge, for research, for individual initiative, for team work, for the opportunity for mental struggle with worthy opponents.It affords a wonderful opportunity for reasearch, selection, weighing, comparison, judgment and organization of mental material. It compels the contestants to think quickly on their feet, to anticipate and meet an opponent's arguments. The very nature of the work brings a "thrill" and a joy, to the participants, that is in a field by itself. Mr. Frank Barton is the debating manager this year and Professors Jensen and Blaylock are the coaches. The debating club has been working for two months on the question "Resolved that (Continued on Page 3) FOUR PAGES EAST Given Rousing Send Off by Students Thursday, February 21st, President Aaron W. Tracy departed for Chicago, where he will attend the Annual convention of the American Association of Junior Colleges. At the close of the convention he anticipates entering the University of Chicago where he will complete his course toward an M. A. degree. He will return in time to take up his duties as President of the College next September.The entire student body inarched to the Union Depot, and with cheer and song, gave him a send-off he will long remember. Weber will miss her President during the coming spring quarter. The spirit of progress and achievement that he has instilled into the school, has been the deciding factor in our success this season. The vision that he has held before us of the future Weber College has been the means of stirring within us a feeling of pride in our institution.Weber wishes her President every success in his work this summer, and looks forward to his return next fall. President Tracy anticipates visiting several places of special interest to him while away, including the home of his grand-parents at Nauvoo, Illinois. I n Devotional Assembly Wednesday morning, he expressed confidence that the affairs of the school would be carried on in an efficient manner during his absence, thanking the faculty and students for their hearty support in the past. Weber Opera To Be of High Order Daily the opera mill goes on grinding and polishing a-bout 35 singers to fit the opera "Carmen." Possibly an Opera of the magnitude of Carmen has seldom, if ever before been attempted by a Junior College of 250 students.In the first place it takes voices with training and people who can be carefully moulded to present a story of love, passion, hate and jealously. However, in the last two years Prof. Manning has developed some very fine singers with the thought in mind of presenting before the people of Ogden some of the bigger forms of music, that they might become acquainted with a few of the larger Operas and ultimately appreciate them enough to demand that Ogden be visited by one or more of the Opera Companies that are traveling through to more appreciative places.
