W81BMUDIF DEDICATED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRESS OFFICIAL PAPER OF WEBER ACADEMY AND COLLEGE VOL. III. OGDEN, UTAH, THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 1919. Xo. 7 WEBE ANNUAL PLAY TO BE STAGED Mice and Men at Orpheum Theater on April 1st and 2d. PLAY BOUND TO PLEASE Cast Letter Perfect and Finished Production Can Be Expected. "The best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft agley." Robert Burns. "Mice and Men," the Weber annual school play, will make its initial bow before the Ogden public on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 1 and 2. The students included in the cast are too well known to need any introduction. In their respective roles they will achieve new laurels for themselves and add greater glory to the already recognized histrionic ability of our college. "Mice and Men" ranks with the best modern English dramas. While it abounds with comedy, the laugh often gives place suddenly to a tear, for of such spontaneous material has Mrs. Lucette Kylcy woven her exquisite play that the smile and sigh go hand in hand throughout the entire four acts. It was first produced with tremendous success in London by Forbes Robertson. Henry Miller introduced it to New York audiences, where its (Continued on Page Three) WASATCH HIGH EASY MARK Splendid teamwork and clever basket shooting featured the game between Weber and Wasatch Academy on the third night of the tourney. Our hoopsters have seldom been in better condition, and by coming out on the long end of a 42 to 22 score, proved their right to meet Bingham for the title. Wasatch played fast ball, but the fast guarding of Jepp, which was of an all-state caliber, prevented their scoring. Weber led from the start and in creased the lead every minute until the end of the half, when the score stood 19 to 11. Uncorking a series of bewildering plays which netted a large number of baskets, Weber had the second half all her own way. Long shots from difficult angles by Schade kept the huge crowd in a continual state of excitement. The lineup and summary follows: Weber F.G. F.T. F.G. T.P.

Second Row Wiggins, guard; Campbell, center; Hinckley, guard; Doxey, forward; Critchlowforward; t-oach Watson, i-runt Row Schade, right forward; Jeppson, right guard; Jones (captain) center; Lindsay, left guard; Belnap, left forward. Here they are, girls Weber's championship team. Give them the "once over" and pick your own star. The above is a picture of one of the best teams Weber has ever turned out a crew of great players and clean spore's. Every man is worthy of an all-state position, as each is a finished player and ranks with the best in the state. The success of the team is due in a large measure to Coach Watson whose untiring energy and skillful training made possible the team's success. Captain Jones "Bonsey" for short BASEBALL NEXT SPORT Now that the basketball season is over, attention is turning to baseball and other spring sports. On account of the war there has been no league during the last few years among the schools of the city. This year, however, a schedule will be drawn up and games will be arranged for the city championship and a trophy awarded the winning team. The probable contestants will be Ogden High, Deaf and Blind School, Industrial School and Weber. The plans are not yet complete, but the games will no doubt start within the next two weeks. The interclass series will start next week and some hard battles are expected. The present Junior class won the cup both last year and the preceding year and will make a strong bid for this year's honors. The Senior class also has some good material, but little is known about the Freshmen and Sophomores. It is very likely that some good players will be found in these classes. The Seniors and Sophs will tangle first and then the Juniors and Frosh; the two winners battling for the title. The games will be played at the diamonds on 28th street and Quincy. We suggest that the class athletic managers get their men busy so that the games may start immediately. If 1 i ' t I 1 tr;y x has certainly held down his position in center in a wonderful manner. His great jumping and all round excellent work places him head and shoulders above all the pivot men in the state. Schade's unusual record as a basket shooter entilles him to an all-state position. His clever shooting and good work from the foul line marks him as one of the best forwards developed in recent years. Belnap or "Rosy" is all there. For fast floor work few are his equal and none his s-.iperior. "Rosy" always comes up imiling. Though somewhat light for a the students will support their respective teams and attend the games, an interesting series can be expected. Coach Watson says Weber has excellent chances for turning out a championship baseball team this year. He further states that there is plenty of material. Such men as Jepp, Jones, Doxey, Lindsay, Farley and others composing the team should make a combination to be feared. SENIORS WIN TWICE In the effective public speaking contests the Seniors have taken a large lead with thirteen points to their credit. The Juniors have eight; the Sophs, six, and the Freshmen, three. The upper classmen have made use of their years of experience and have gained a lead that will be difficult to overcome. However, all the others are attempting to stage a rally in the next few contests and hope to win the prize offered by our former principal, James L. Barker. Dwight Thompson ('19) won the fourth contest, discussing "Completion of our present contracts." Luella Anderson, Freshman, took second place. Her subject was "The navy's place in peace times." Kenneth Farley, Junior, came third with "A second-to-none navy." Frank Robinson ('21) held down the cellar position. His subject was GH Champions 3 '3 . guard, Claude Lindsay surely uses his weight to the best advantage and his cat-like quickness has proved too much for many a forward that has opposed him. Whirlwind playing has characterized Jepp's guarding throughout the season. Possessed of a splendid physique and great strength, Phil has made a name for himself by his "knock-'em-down-drag-'em-out" tactics.Critchlow, Wiggins, Hinckley, West, Barker, Campbell, and Doxey have all contributed to the success of the team as has also Carstensen, the athletic manager. "A large navy and the League of Nations." Again in the fifth contest the Seniors won. David McKay, their representative, discussed "Merchant marine and expansion of foreign trade." Stanley Rheese took second with "U. S. Merchant Marine and European Reconstruction," adding two points to the Junior's score. Carl Ballarflyne, Soph, was third. His subject was "Merchant marine and labor." Lawrence Oborn received last place for the Freshmen with "U. S. Government ownership and merchant marine" as his topic. The Rich oratorical contest between Ogden and Weber will be held on April 9th this year. This contest was instituted a number of years ago by Dr. Edward Rich of this city and is held on his birthday. The prize is $50 $35 to the winner and $15 to second place. Judging from the enthusiasm shown, Weber should win this year, as many experienced men have signified their intention of entering the contest. The tryouts will be held next Wednesday and our representatives will be chosen. MICE AND MEN at Orpheum. MPIONS 1 WEBER WINS TOURNAMENT Loses First Game to Branch Agricultural College by Close Margin. BRANCH AGGIES STOPPED Weber's Fast Team Trims the Binghamites in Final Game for Championship. State Basketball Champions for 1919. That is now our official title. After seven years the old pennant has come home to roost and with it all honors attached. We certanly have cause to grow egotistical when we think of our wonderful success. Thirteen victories and but one lone defeat is some record. To say that we are proud of ourselves is putting it mildly. But then, to be the first yes, the very first of all the seventy schools in the state should be some excuse for the mild (?) case of "big head" we are suffering from. Our team entered the tourney with a determination to bring home the "rag," and after four days of hard, prindino- nphtintr. proved its iii?hr to the pennant. On the first night we were pitted against the Branch Agricultural College of Cedar City the same team that won the title last year. This game was replete with thrills and spectacular plays and was conceded (Continued on Page Three) WEBER VICTOR OVER BINGHAM Weber's basketeers won their first game of the tournament on Friday afternoon, when they triumphed over Bingham High by a score of 39 to 25. Although the game was hard fought, after the first five minutes the outcome was never in doubt, Weber's passing and classy guarding keeping the Binghamites on the defensive all the time. Both teams went scoreless during the first few minutes, each guarding so closely that a clear shot was impossible. Weber broke the ice with a goal, which was tied by Bingham a few moments later. Weber then took the lead and was never headed. The half, ended 17 to 13 in our favor. The second half opened with a rush, Weber and Bingham alternating on the scoring. Toward the end the purple and white quintet settled down to business in earnest and the game was all over but the shouting. The lineup and summary: Weber F.G. F.T. F.G. T.I'.
