V nnuai DiD The honor students of the Senior class of 1921 are: Miss Ruth Scow-croft, who is valedictorian; Miss Gladys Green, Mr. John Em-mett and Mr. Delbert Wright. They were chosen according to their class standing, their credits and their activities in the Student Body organization.We each know how staunchly they have upheld the spirit and standards of Weber. Now let us look back on the past four years of their career of high school life. Miss Ruth Scowcroft, during her freshman and Sophomore years, was ice-president of her class. In 1920 she was the class reporter for the Acorn and Herald; she Avon the Rich Oratorical Contest and' was elected secretary of the Girls' association. That year was gloriously ended by the winning of the Efficiency medal. During her Senior year she won first place in the Sons of ta American Revolution Contest. .:Ja Scowcroft was editor-in-chief of fhe Literary Journal, she took part in the school pageant and played the leading role in the school play, Lost Paradise." She has now been chosen the valedictorian of the graduating class for the year '21. Another of Webr's students. Miss :;; :i ppn. has mj.de sixteen and one-half units in two a-j-.l Lu!t years at this school, having a majority of "A's," with no mark below "B." This is doing a good deal, for most of us know how hard we have to work to merit all "A's." Her student body activities m the year of 1921 include the pageant, school play and extemporaneous speaking contest. She scored worthy praises in the Rich Oratorical Contest and the Sons of the American Revolution Contest. The all-around man who can turn his hand to help out under any condition is Mr. John Emmett. It seems as if he can be everywhere at the same time, before the scenes, behind the scenes and in the scenes.

PRESIDENT SHURTLIFF SPEAKS TO THE STUDENTS In speaking to the students of Weber in devotional on April 2 6, President Lewis v.' Shurtliff bore his testimony as to the truth of the gospel. He knew the Prophet Joseph Smith and told of incidents concerning him. President Shurtliff was present at the meeting in Nauvoo when Brig-ham Young was made president of the Church. He said that the people were haranguing with each other as to who was to be the next president. When Brigham Young came in his voice and face were just like the prophet's. "Nothing is so great as to know that Jesus is. the Christ, that Joseph Smith is the Prophet, and that this is the true Church re-established by the Prophet. Just less important than the spirit of God is education. How I rejoice with the gospel! It is the one thing I appreciate most." He also told the students that Weber has sent out more missionaries than any other school. It was a very great privilege to hear President Shurtliff, and we hope that we may hear him again soon.

UTAH THEATRE HELPS FINANCE THE ACORN With the intention of raising money for the Acorn, Llewellyn McKay made arrangements with Mr. Campbell, manager of the Utah theatre, for half of the proceeds on the tickets sold at Weber for the show "Just Pals." Before each performance the Weber quartet rendered several selections, all of which were very much enjoyed. But the show was not the kind most people appreciate, and as a result the crowd was not as large as the students hoped it would be.

We hop it will prove more successful thaq the last one did.
