THE STUDENTS' PAPER FOR THE COLLECTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF NEWS ONLY DEDICATED TO THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRESS VOLUME IV. OGDEN, UTAH, OCTOBER 14, 1920 NUMBER TWO lil! WEBER PLAYS O. A. A. FRIDAY AT GLENWOOD Will Be Weber's First Game Team Is Fast Shaping Into Good Squad. Next Friday afternoon Weber will play her first game of the 1920 gridiron season. This year marks her second on the gridiron field. What the -team might and will do during the present season is of doubt, although all of us expect wonders from the present eleven. All-in all there is a different attitude prevailing on the football field this season. Our coach has now had the experience of last year's games. All the players are not green at the game. Five of last year's regulars are returning to do battle together with five 'of last year's bright lights on the second team. When the final pistol shot signalling that "time is up" echoes across the field at Glenwood Friday afternoon, all will be better able to surmise our chances of victory during the present season. Friday the O. A. A. is our competitor. If we win, we will look for broader chances of victory with our friends "up the street." Old rivals naturally look forward to coming games. We look forward to the date of dates, November 6. when Ogden-Weber will vie for hon-' ors. Our team will do its bit if we do ours. Let's all attend the games and boost them on to victory. STUDENT BODY GIVES OPENING DANCE OF YEAR "This is the life" was one of the suggestive phrases heard in the. dance hall Friday evening when the dance was in full sway. It was truly the life. Everyone' was having a good time and all in all it was a splendid dance from start to finish. Students turned out for a good time and received it. The Student Body will continue through-out the year to give dances and other forms of amusements which promise to be headliners. Student Body tickets are godd for all such amusements whether given by the class or Student Body unless it is some unusual affair entailing considerable expense. Lillian Thatcher's Orchestra furnished the music. WEBER GRADS UNDER THE "A" "Weber is always well represented" is the tidings we send to the Utah Agricultural College of Logan. We are sure that they will also agree with such a statement. Mr. John Croft and Miss Amanda "Tat" Chamberlain, both students of Weber and members of class "20," have been honored as president and vice-president of the Freshmen class at the U. A. C. With such students at the head of class "24" we are sure it will progress rapidly. The editor is in receipt of a letter from "Tat." In part she says, "Give Weber my love. I'm still loyal to the purple and white and anxious to yell. 'Beat 'em Weber, beat 'em.' In fact Bob, tell everyone hello and please remember that tho I'm absent somewhere in Logan I still exist." MORE WRITERS ARE NEEDED Weber has always been a success in Student Body activities. Among the greatest of Student Body activities is the school papers. Students have always been honored as representatives of the Student Body when they have taken part in the work of the Herald or Acorn. This year a Literary Journal is to be edited. In order that it may succeed, a good staff is needed, likewise the Herald and Acorn is also in need of some writers. If you wish to take part in such you must show your ability by applying for a position on one of the various staffs and you will be given, a ' trial. No better experience can be obtained than as a member of one of the staffs. You are needed. Sit down, send in an article or see one of the editors and apply for a position. The editors of the editions are as follows: Herald, Robert Wilkinson; Literary Journal, Ruth Scowcroft; Acorn, John Emmett. CLASS 23 HERE AGAIN 100 PER CENT STRONG Every One Taking Part In Activities Class Is One of Life. From the rate at which the member, of last 3'ear's freshmen class have been returning there is no doubt but that the present sophomore class will exceed by far that of any other this year. At present there is an enrollment of 300 which surpasses last year's sophomore class by 144. . . They are a lively, happy bunch full of pep and enthusiasm; the girls are the spifiest little steppers at Weber, and the boys keep the pace. Indeed it may be truly said that they, are ready for any activities that come their way, and if enough don't come they'll search for more. Already a number of parties and entertainments of an original nature have been arranged for. The members also intend to take a leading part in all school activities. Some of the boys are trying out for the football team, others in the class are planning to enter the public speaking and oratorical contests, to take part in the pageant, or to compete for parts in the school play or places on the basket-ball team. Al tho' the class expects to keep alive to the social and competitive life of the school they do not intend to disregard scholarship. They are alert mentally, and up to the present have received very few round ovals for non-preparation. With Llewellyn McKay and Nan Emmett two of the most loyal and capable students at the head of the class, we feel sure this will be a banner year for class 23. Almeda Newman. Aliss Edris Christensen "22 has been elected to fill the vacancy of the Acorn and Herald reporter. Miss Ruth Tanner who was elected, is attending the University of Utah. God made the world and rested; God made man and. rested; Then God made woman and since then neither Gor nor man has rested. STUDENT BODY OFFERS PRIZES The Weber Student Body is offering prizes to create life for the supporting of the athletical teams this year by offering a prize to the class which can make the most noise, or, in other words, the class which has the best bunch of rooters who work together to the best advantage. They are also offering a prize for the best yell which is written by a student of the institution. It is not yet known what the nature of the prizes will be but we are assured that if some real boosting is shown by the winning class and a very spiffy, original yell with some real scholastic life is produced that the prize will well repay all efforts. Weber's yells are old. Let's have some new ones. COLLEGE CLASS ELECTS THEIR NEW OFFICERS Good Times Expected Will Enter Athletic and Speaking Contests. k The spirit of the College class! That will be the watchword of the school for the coming year. We are forty strong and our first class meeting is a forecast of our lively career. It was held in the college sanctum (that inspiring structure on the south campus.) The class elected David Bybee as president: Louise Browning, vice president; Mary Ensign, secretary and treasurer; Helen Hinckley, " debating manager; Marion Bodie, dramatic manager; Ira Terry, athletic manager; William Stucki, yell master, and Barbara Spragaie. reporter. With this able squad we expect to make the class and the school 'in general buzz with our activities, t. Of these las; named there are to be many during the year. Among the first will be a get-acquainted party in the college rooms.' Our two advisors, Mr. Mills and Mr. Clark, will be there to help us "mix."- We all anticipate a jolly time,. In the near future we are going to 'xtend our social activities into a larger field. The annual Hallow'ec n festival will be given by the College class. There will be "spooky" decorations and "thrills" and eats a plenty. It will be one of our first chances to "trip the light fantastic." Our athletic manager predicts athletic as well as social prominence. The college boys, tho few in numbers, will enter basket-fall and inter-class track meets and they are out to win. Later on our debating team will prove their prowess In college and class debates. This class is made up of supporters of the two schools, Hi and Weber, united to make our . organization the pepiest and most highly respected in school. Watch us! The Herald says, "We cannot refer to Rufus' Rhymes any more as Rufus Rheese has left out midst. Kid Koko has not yet strolled around from his vacation and there is yet no "Open Forum Column" as we feel that it is inessential to gather around the roaring stove, therefore, there is no news from that source. You have, however; no dou'it, read of our find in Dr. Du Pont Cerveraker. His writings will appear hereafter. SCHOOL NEWS IS NOT AVAILABLE All may wonder why this, the second edition of the Herald for the present season is late in arriving from the press. It is because of the fact that news is not available at this Institution at present whereby it is impossible for the Staff to forward the paper to the press in sufficient time for it to be printed. The school seems to be slightly sleeping. There is practically no life at all. The only bit of news that is available concerns the football squad. If we expect- a paper to be edited there must be the main essential,-news. If there is no more news in the future than there is at present the paper will always be late and it must not. Lets create a little spirit. Have some rallys for that football team, create class rivalry, paint one word on the roof, break up class meetings, etc. All this of course is to be kept quiet. Faculty' members please beware. CHURCH SCHOOL WORKERS MEET IN CONVENTION President Joel E. Ricks Tells of Experiences at Chicago. The Church school presidents and principals held the first session of their convention, Friday in the Assembly hall on the fourth floor of the Church office . building. Emphasis was laid on the pageantry feature in. the Church school system. The observation of the Pilgrim tercentary was discussed by Professor B. Roland centary committee report was given by Chairman E. H. Eastmond of the B. Y. C. Reports were also given by school men who have been away attending summer schools. They were as follows : Joel E. Ricks, who attended the University of Chicago; Thomas C. Romeny of Oneida, who attended Berkley; Roy A. Welking of Fieleding Academy, who also attendeed Berkley.W. H. Boyle of the Brigham Young High school at Provo reported on the study problem. He is chairman of that committee. The social and recreation committee made its several reports during the afternoon through Coach Roberts of the B. Y. U. Thomas Howells of the L. D. S. U. discussed "Films as a Force in Education." Other miscellaneous reports were given by Superintendent Adam S. Bennion. THE HORRIBLE DEED He sits alone in the darkened room Alone in the fading light. Why is his brow so heavy with gloom And his cheek so deadly white. His eye is fixed in a glassy stare. What is it his firm hand clutches? "A little courage," he murmers, "Yes, a little and all is won." A choking gurgle, more or less a gasp, And the deed is done. Without a shudder or eye lid wink. Ah it makes the heart recoil, That he so calmly, nobly drank a dose of Castor Oil. Lenore Croft. HERALD STAFF IS CHOSEN BY BOARD Literary Magazine Under Way Bigger and Better Paper Is Needed. At a meeting of the Student Body officers, the organization of the Herald staff was completed. The names suggested by the editor and recommended by Mr. Tracy .of the English faculty were voted upon and supported by those present at the meeting are as follows: Assistant Business Manager, Hugh Taylor. Associate Editor, Leonard Wright. Assistant Editor, Helen Hinckley. Special Writer, Grant Dalstrom. Staff Ex. Editor, Lenore Grant. The success of the Literary Journal is assured, with the selection of Miss Ruth Scowcroft as editor. ' She is an excellent critic of English work and is also successful in literary writing". She will certainly edit a book worth while that will advertise the school to a great extent away from home. Barbara Sprague, the College class reporter, did extensive work in the High School Classicum along a literary line and will surely show the College class and its activity in its true light to the Student Body. Mr'' Rhprs vw r.-v" y.y .in. ,:-...,.,. report their activities. Edris ChrS" tensen wll represent the Juniors, and Almeda Newman the Sophomores. The Freshmen; as yet, have not chosen a representative. We would be pleased to hear from them. Miss Scowcroft will select her staff immediately, while Mr. Emmett of the Acorn staff also expects to commence work on the edition soon. In order that all editions may be a success more so than ever, the earnest support of the Student Body is solicited.WEBER GRID PROSPECTS FINE Six Seasoned Grid Veterans Answer to Weber's First Call. Prospects for a winning grid aggregation is bright. This was assured when three full lineups answered the first signal of commencement on Tuesday, September 22. Of the old men who played on the team last season, Wilcox, Ballantyne, Halliday, Hickman, Barnes and Nek-man are showing a world of class. Lindsay was the bright star of the opening practice, but has since been injured and will more than likely be unable to play this season. Others who have shown great form are Hill, Parry, Hinckley, Moorsc, Davis, Price and Wright. These men should prove to be the main springs in our purple and white aggregation during the present season. Our players are practicing on the Tabernacle square grounds during the present season, permission having been granted by officials of the Church. The team is eager for the bell to signal the commencing of our first scrap next Friday afternoon. Weber will have a splendid team lined up. The following men have answered the call and are working for places on the aggregation: Jensen, Crosley, Stephens, Hodge, Browning, L. Wilkinson, Bjorkland, Anderson, Couch, Eikens, Leishman, Sorenson, Cooley, Crawshaw, Watkins, Clawson, De Hahn, and Smith.
