FRIDAY A-'RIL 1, 1921 NO. 13 Weber Wins From Normal On March 18, the. students of the Weber Normal College were entertained by a heated debate between Ricks Normal College of Rexburg, Idaho, and their home institution. The subject for debate was, "Resolved, That the U. S. Congress should pass laws prohibiting strikes. Constitutionality waved." A unanimous decision was awarded to Weber. Frank Robinson and John Emmett were the local team, and debated the affirmative side. Rudger Walker and Paul Wynn represented Ricks Normal with the negative. Frank Robinson of Weber opened tTie debate. He explained in a well organized speech and forceful manner, how a small minority of strike leaders were causing a nation to suffer. In rebuttal, he told how Kansas had succeeded and profited under such a law. Mr. Walker of the opposition, followed. He endeavored to show that strikes were merely friction between capital and labor and were not illegal; that it was the only effective way of obtaining results. Comparisons with New Zealand were made. John Emmett closed the constructive case for the affirmative. He emphasized the seriousness of a strike condition in an industry, such starvation that' would result. This would be particularly serious in the winter, and would at serious in the winter, and would at least raise the high cost of living, in '-(i hio-1 T-Tic re- biutal work was clever and t'orce-Iul.The closing argument far Ricks Normal was given by Paul Wynn. Ease of manner and clear logic marked Mr. Wynn's work; his talk was well organized. The judges for the debate were Judge Hugo B. Anderson, J. Tracy Wootton and Theron Parmalee, all of Salt Lake. President Joel E. Ricks acted as chairman, and William Z. Terry was time keeper. Coaches Stokes and Lars.en of Weber and Coach Shepherd of Ricks deserve commendation for their able work in producing such teams. At 12 o'clock a dinner was served to the victors and the vanquished. This was given by the student body under Mrs. Tanner's direction. The table was, set for twelve and was daintily decorated. The centerpiece was of tall daffodills. President Ricks was toastmaster and short speeches were made by all present. ORDER OF THE GLEAM ORGANIZES IN OGDEN The alumni members of the Order of the Gleam, who are living in Ogden have organized an Ogden Chapter of the Literary society. The purpose of this organization is the production of original literary work, and to keep informed on the litera ture of the day. The members of the Ogden Chapter are Mrs. Allene Dunn Price, Mrs. Vera Duval Groshell, Ora Whipple, Irene Shields, Ruth Cart-wright, Agnes Lovendahl, Lenore Cannon and Caroline Parry. The following have been elected associate members: Mrs. Blanche Kendall McKey, Mrs. Coolidge, Lavinia Maughan, Aurelia Bennion, and Pearl Starr. The first meeting was held at the home of Mrs. Price. The program consisted of a description of Greenwich village by Miss Lovendahl, and two vocal solos by Mrs. Frank Sco-ville. A social hour followed. The second meeting was held March 2 2, in the Domestic Science dining room of the Weber Normal College. Mrs. Blanche Kendall McKey read one of her own compositions, a most delightful play. According to critics who have read it, it has real literary merit. She calls . her play "Light." Ricks In Snappy Debate ORATORICAL CONTEST TO BE HELD ON APRIL 83 AND 20 Let us pause in our athletic activities, and turn to the intellectual side of our school life. Entrance to our two annual, oratorical contests is now open to all students of the school. On April 1, 1921, tryouts will be held for the Rich Oratorical Contest, which will take place on the 8th of the same month. This contest is a local affair held in commemoration of the birthday of Doctor E. I. Rich of Ogden. The Sons of the American Revolution Contest, to be held April 20, is a national one as it is held annually in every state. The date of the try-outs has. not yet been fixed, but will be announced later. The subjects of the speeches must be of a patriotic nature. Fellow students: You remember the record we made last year. Can we fall down, now, and let oin rivals defeat us? The contests are open to everyone and, although it may now be too late to enter the Rich contest, (if you have not already done so) there is. still time to try-out for the Sons of the American Revolution Contest. Twenty-five students are already at work but more are needed. The school needs you, your service, your speech! Remember, Weber's ideals f TV r--.v Will you come to her rescue and help her win? N. J. '23. THE INVITATIONS ARE OUT We, the Junior Claps are giving the annual Prom at the Berthana, April 8th. Of course everyone i looking forward anxiously to this big event, from the mighty Seniors down to the humble Freshmen, and we assure you that it will be the best Prom that Weber, or, in fact, any other school, has ever put on. Elaborate arrangements have been made and the invitations issued and distributed. We wish to say to the Sophs and Freshmen, that if they wish invitations for themselves, it is necessary for them to hand in their names right away, in order that they may receive attention. These may be handed to Leon Bush, Edris Christenson, Helen Slater, Leonard Wright or Elliot Wright. Everyone is talking of this event; girls are seen in corners whispering and talking; occasional snatches of conversations are heard such as, "Are you going to have silver lace on it?" or more commonly: "Have you got a date, yet?" So, boys, get busy in the next few days, think constantly of the Prom, the time, the place and the GIRL. E. C. '22. "My mother came to see me act at the theatre the other night," Wallace Budge told his friends. "I met her after the show and she was intears. I asked her what was the matter and she explained: " 'I never was more humiliated in my life. When I saw you come on the stage,' she sobbed, 'I thought you were a good actor, and all the audience did was to laugh at you'.'' WEBER LOSES TO THE B. Y. C. IN CLOSE DEBATE The Weber negative team lost to the B. Y. C. affirmative team in a close debate March 18, at Logan. Deblert Wright and Leland Johnson were the Weber representatives and according to Coach Stokes who accompanied the boys, they enjoyed the trip in spite of the decision and felt- that it was not a defeat in many ways. College Play The Amazons" Is An ArtistiGjJuocess The college department of the Weber Normal College presented its annual play, "The Amaions," in the college auditorium, M.voh 18. The play was directed by Mrs. Beth Keate Brennan. It was a good comedy and kept the audh.nce laughing throughout. The three love stories in the plot were very entertaining. The queer thing about 'he play was the fact that each girl was reared by Lady Castlejordan to look and act . like a boy. After a short absence from home the proud mother finds that her girl-boys act decidedly like girls and has to give up her reforms. Ira Terry, as "Tweeny," and Dave Bybee as the Frenchman, took their parts with ease. Louise Browning, the autocratic mother and Golden Fisher, solemn minister should also be commended; the three girls at home under their gymnasium teacher, Barbara Sprague, are as fresh and charming os the woodland that" they live in. They are Mary Ensign, Hattibel Shields and Josie Roiibins. William Stuki is an all around workman of the estate and show 'd that he can tell a lie if he is properly paid for it. Leroy Johnson proved himself the perfect lover, and Art Hutchins made our blood run cold. A special matin, e was given March 2 4, for the ;Judents of the school. IS WELL RECEIVED IN LOGAN In Logan, March 25, "The Lost Paradise," artistically speaking, repeated the success accorded the production in Ogden. The spectators spoke of the performance enthusiastically in the 'highest terms of praise. The Weber players were unfortunate in the competition which they had to meet. Every student in the city was looking forward to the basketball game, Logan High, Utah State champions, versus Billings High, winners of the Montana State championship. The games took place on the night of our play, and some of Weber's good friends, even had to be in attendance. We may say in passing that Logan scored the victory. In addition the Mutual Improvement Associations of the city were having a bazaar for which Mutual members had been working for weeks. Many theatre lovers who were desirous of seeing "The Lost Paradise" were bound through duty to attend the bazaar. The picture houses were offering attractive bills, and at the Auditorium a big dance was being held. But in spite of these disadvantages the Weber players made many friends, and left in Logan a very good impression. The excellence of the performance spread rapidly, and that praise of our offering will reflect advantageously on Weber's standing throughout the state as a junior college. We thank the cast for their very splendid efforts, DELBERT WRIGHT GIVES INSPIRING TALK TO STUDENTS The program given by the student body, on Wednesday, March 2 3, was featured by a real oration given by Delbert Wright, on the subject of higher education, its necessity, and the importance of building up our college here in Weber. He emphasized the fact that our college faculty is able, and can give courses, here, parallel to those given any state institution. The Freshman will be eliminated entirely next year. Almeda Newman gave a humorous reading entitled "A Little Boy and His, Mother at the Circus." Musical numbers were given by Miss Lucile Tribe, Frances Cragun and Melba Douglas. Class meetingsfollowed. "The Fire Prince" Great THE FIRE DRILLS There are a good many students who consider the newly innovated fire drill merely a method of getting out of theology sooner, a time for meeting with -one's best friends, or perhaps, a bore. They never stop to consider the reason why fire drills are of vital importance to them. There are a few facts that the students ought to know; not to frighten them, but to make them realize the necessity of taking this matter s,eriously. Prof. Barrett has thoroughly examined our building and has found startling conditions. In more than a hundred places the electric wires have been worn bare, and the contact of two of these wires would result in a fire. If the wires leading from the building should fall, as is often the case, a fire would start almost immediately. One of the underwriters' rules is that no wire should carry more than 660 watts of electricity, while one of the wires in the wall was tested and found to carry 2500 Watts. In one of the halls is a chute that leads into the furnace room. Down this the janitor puts all the waste paper swept up from the building. This pile of paper extends over to the old boiler and if a hot coal or a spark shoudl fall onto a piece of paper the result is evident. If the stairs by this chute were destroyed (-!:,, students in thf stndv ball. Dr. Lind's room and in the commercial department would be trapped. Over the library some of the wires have become so hot that the rubber insulation has been melted. Over the assembly Mr. Barrett has found wires buried in old rags, and in one place the rag had been saturated with gasoline! In Room 25 there is an old cupboard in which two wires run parallel into the wall. The plugs are warm and at night when the. whole building is." lighted, these become very hot. Could any conditions be more suitable to start a fire than these that exist here in our building? Mr. Barrett is working here every night trying to remedy these conditions and he hopes that everything will soon be up to standard. MY EDUCATION My education! I am always con scious of it, It maketh me and breaketh me. Yea, though I walk the straight and narrow path, I have no peace for my purse is flat. It leadeth me into bad habits for a good time's sake; Yea, though I am very careful I run into every teacher that knows me For this I must go on the carpet. Yea, though I bring good excuses to the office The girl casts a shrewd eye upon me, And sends my excuses home. For this also I must answer. Yea, though I do all these things The F's shall burn on my report card forever. Douglas Ellis. SPECIAL FEATURES IN DEVOTIONAL DURING LAST 2 WEEKS During the last two weeks the following numbers have been given in assembly: Vocal solos by Lucile Wright, Nephi Brown, Mr. Manning; musical numbers were also given by Miss Mae MsFarlane, the Weber male quartette and Dorothy Nichols. Readings were given by lone Salt and Marguerite Rogers. Oriole Blackburn, a former Weber student, related some of his missionary ex periences. Is Musical Success The annual opera presented by the music department of the Weber Normal College, exceeded all expectations in beauty of song, acting, scenery and general effect. It showed real talent and ability both in its personnel and its director, W. H. Manning. The cast was strong in every detail; the choruses moved about the stage . with the ease of professionals. The Salt Lake Tribune made the following comment: "What was regarded as one of the best trainer" choruses ever seen in a local production was herad in "The Fire Prince," presented by the class of the Weber Normal College, at the Orpheum theatre last night. The production staged under the direction of William Manning, was enjoyed by an audience that filled the theatre. Features of the show were several well executed dances." Miss Melba Douglas as Rosa, daughter of the Spanish embassador to Pantoufiia, thrilled her audience with her rich, clear voice. She was charming in her acting as well as her singing. Elijah Clawson was the typical smart young prince. He said much, for her had much to say; that is a good deal now days. His solos were very sweet, especially his "Information," and "When the Love Wind Blows." Pantouflia's excellent little monarch was played by Wallace Budge, and his tall, stately and beautiful fitted their parts perfectly and their voices blended well together in the "Fairies" duet. Alphonso and Enrico, Paul Cragun and Rulon Peterson were willing young heroes who drew from many an eye a silent tear. Both did very well. Carl Ballantyne showed his powers of adaption by playing a double role. As the wise man he was mysteriously impressive; as Rosa's father he had real Spanish ease and grace. Benson, the butler was such an inspiration to the pages at the embassy, that they danced gracefully under his direction without losing a step. The part was played by Edward Burrows. The pages were Julian Stephens, Wallace Petterson, Heber Jacobs and Clarence Barker. Ladies Molinda and Kathleena, Georgia Tate and Myra Wright, nieces of the king, devoted themselves to their princely lovers and got into their parts with living real-ness. Their dresses were pretty and they showed good stage presence. Mary Ensign, the Duchess, adapted herself well to the part of the proper" governess. No one would have suspected this elegant lady of being the boyish Amazon of a week before. Ella Ferrin as Teresa, Elwood Barker as Frederick, Eldon Dye as William, and Lowella Hadlock as the messenger filled their roles ably. A special feature of the performance was the dancing chorus. It Included Ruth Stevens, Ella Offhani-mer, Tottie Hart, Cherril Hicks, Hazel Stone and Thelma ShirUiff. To see them was to be immediately converted to fairies, fire drakes of anything they chose to portray. Mrs. Maxwell directed them in their dancing.The excellent work of E. W. Nichols with the orchestra, aided materially in making the play a success.The following students sang in the chorus: Milo Lowder, Wayne Grow, Ray Wood field, Ira Terry, El mer Davis, Alvin llobson, May I Pickett, Catherine Rishton, Elva i Moss, Ada Fautz, Julia Hellewell, : Nan Emmett, Gwendolyn Nelson, j Frances Cragun, Dorothy Ballantyne, Frances Moore, Christabel Gardner, Mabel Carver, John Cross-;ley, Evelyn Spiles, Florence Malan. Arvilla Burrup, Golden Fisher, Lila Brown, Marion Pierce, James Lindsay, Irvin Hull, Sara Spencer, Helen Lone.
