Let's Help Defeat Ogden High Tonight Let's Have a 1923 State Pennant VOL. 8 NO. 7 FOUHDERS' WEBER TEAMS START HOOP SCHEDULES Prominent Citizens and Alumni Support Second Annual Founders' Day COLLEGE WINS PARADE CONTEST; CLASS SPIRIT AND COLORS AID IN MAKING PARADE A SUCCESS Weber's second annual Founders' Day festivities were fittingly carried out on Tuesday, January 9. The different events were all attended with success, the parade especially, attracting wide interest. The college was awarded the prize for making the best showing in this part of the celebration.Students convened as usual at 8 :4S, in theology classes where the rolls were marked. At 9:30 bells for class meetings were sounded, and for an hour plans were carried out and instructions given in regard to each class's part in the parade. A short devotional was held at 10 :30. The band rendered a selection, after which prayer was offered by Bro. Jensen. Final announcements were made concerning the day's plans. There were several interesting features in the assembly. The display of caps, balloons, banners, and other decorations was prominent. Considerable interest was shown in class yelling and singing. A heated argument arose over whose class colors Bro. Nichols, band leader, should wear, the seniors having the advantage.After devotional the classes formed in line for marching. The faculty, board members, and visitors led, and the classes followed in order. The line of march was from the school over to Twenty-fifth, down to Grant, south to the Second Ward, then upTwenty-fifth to Washington, north to the Tabernacle, back to Twenty-sixth, up to the Fifth Ward, north to Twenty-fifth, up to Monroe, then back to school. At each of the former homes of Weber, the Second Ward, the Tabernacle, and the Fifth Ward, a halt was called, and the band played a piece. The discipline was excellent, and the marching of all the classes is to be complimented. The colors were varied and extensive. The college boasted purple and white, the seniors gold and blue, the juniors blue and white, and the sophomores red and white. An outstanding feature was the college banners, and the word "senior" made up of large letters carried at the head of the class. Yelling and singing were carried on the entire length of march. The Founders' Day parade has attracted much favorable comment from civilians who are interested in us. A great deal of praise is deserved by Bro. Harvey Taylor and the others who helped make it such a success. After the business of marching all over town a light lunch was injoyed at school, consisting of hot dogs, cream puffs, and arctic smiles. Evidently this was much appreciated by the somewhat tired and famished paraders. The main program was held at two o'clock. Several alumni and friends of the school were present ; among them were : Mayor Francis, Pres. N. A. Tanner, Prof. L. E. Cowles-, Pres. Watson and Mr. Scoville. Numbers were as follows : Song, Purple and White Assembly Prayer Pres. Tanner Talk Pres. Watson Selection, School band, Bro. Nichols, director. Talk, Former Teachers Dr. Terry Violin solo Mary Fisher Talk Mayor Francis Solo Prof. Poulter Song, Purple and White Assembly, accompanied by band. Talk, Classes That Have Passed Out of Weber.. ..Prof. Leroy E. Cowles, University of Utah. Solo Prof. Manning Talk Mr. Scoville Selection ..: Band In his talk Dr. Terry said that in many cases institutions had two founders, at different times. For example, Adam founded the race of mankind, but Noah could very well be called its second founder. In the United States government Washington was the man who first established it, but Lincoln could truly be called the second founder of liberty in our country. So in Weber, Louis F. Moench was the first man, and D. O. McKay the second. Dr. Terry mentioned each of the eight members of the board of trustees and paid a tribute to each. He then described the manner of paying instructors when he first taught here, saying that his salary for one year was $540, of which $65 was in uncollected tithing. He closed by giving a toast to Pres. Moench: "Praise to Louis F. Moench, The man who made this school ; And praise to those who followed,The ones who made it grow." Mayor Francis, the next speaker, said that when he came here he was welcomed by the water in the fountain: it shot up and kissed him in the face. He commented on the success and good will of the parade, and declared that he liked the school. He reflected on his school days, and said they were some of the best days of his life. All of us have a chance for greatness in some line, not necessarily in commercial or political lines, but we can all be clean and strong of character.Professor Cowles, a former student and teacher, now at the University of Utah, spoke on the classes that have left Weber. He has known at least one member (Continued on Page 2) DAY Second Annual Alumni Reunion Is a Big Success The second annual Alumni Reunion, which was under the direction of Prof. Harvey Taylor, was a wonderful success. In all, about 400 former students returned, together with many friends and visitors. Practically every class from the first, 1896, to 1922 were well represented. Most of the members of the Board of Trustees were out with their usual enthusiasm and keen support. Several Bishops were in attendance. The association was further honored with the presence of Dr. George H. Brimhall, president emeritus if the Brigham Young University, and also Mayor Frank Francis, who is a warm friend of the institution. From 7:00 o'clock to 8:30 classes met in various rooms to renew old acquaintances, singing their old songs, yelling their old yells, and re-telling stories of thrilling and mischievous pranks of former days. The program began at 8 :30. Addresses were delivered by Prof. Harvey Taylor, President Aaron W. Tracy, Dr. Wiley Cragun, and President George H. Brimhall. Prof. Taylor, in his remarks, welcomed all to the great love feast and complimented them upon their love of the institution as evidenced by the large attendance. Pres. Tracy presented the vision of Weber as she shall be in the near future, stating that such reunions brought before the former members the destiny of the school, their obligations to her, and their opportunity to actually do something for her. He gave a report of the financial condition of the Alumni, stating that the association now has $2,900 drawing interest, and in addition several thousand set aside to assist in the erection of the "gym." He said the time would come when there would be on the Weber campus block several class room buildings besides the present one and the "gym," that one of the buildings would be a choice one, made of the choicest marble and wrought by the finest workmanship, with this inscription above the doorway : "Weber Alumni Hall, Dedicated to the Fine "Arts, 1933," and that this hall would be erected by the Weber Alumni Association. Dr. Cragun, the first president of the Weber student association, reviewed the organization of the student body, mentioning the many difficulties connected with its launching. He also referred to the old teachers, telling of their ways and idiosyncrasies. He paid tribute to the value of the Weber College as an eductional institution. Dr. Brimhall's address dealt largely with the realization of visions. He said that where there are no visions the people perish and that visions are realized only through labor. He developed this theme from two of the (Continued on Page 2) FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1923 I f i EILEEN RIRIE Classmates Express Appreciation For Former Student The Great All Father in his wisdom has called home one of his most lovely and lovable daughters, Eileen Ririe. With her passing Weber has lost one of its truest and most loyal students. As there is a vacancy in her home, so is there a vacancy in the hearts of her friends and admirers. To know her was to love her. She was tender in her love for her friends and fellow classmates, and was always thoughtful and considerate. She was exceptionally bright in her classwork and altogether an ideal student and friend. During her long illness she showed an unwavering faith in God and an unceasing desire for work. Tho her sojourn in mortality has been short she has lived well her life and developed a quality of soul fibre that will guarantee exhaltation in God's Kingdom. SPECIAL PROGRAMS MARK CLOSING OF SCHOOL FOR HOLIDAYS Thursday, December 21, a special program was rendered in devotional. The following numbers were given : Prelude : Mr. Obern. Prayer : Mr. Tracy. Cornet solo: Mae Macfarland. Reading, "The soft spot in B606." Grace Foutz. Chorus: "Stille Nacht" (Silent Night), German Class. The time was then given over for challenges which would be carried out in the contests the next day. Some very humorous challenges were delivered, among them were: Mr. Tracy challenged Mr. Terry to a Chariot Race. Mr. Lawrence Budge challenged Mr. Pete Couch to a peanut race with Heber Jacobs acting the star role. The Juniors challenged the Seniors to a yelling contest. The Sophomores challenged the two other classes to a yelling contest also. Mr. Poulter challenged Mr. Neilson to a doughnut eating contest and Mr. Blaylock challenged Mr. Stokes to a Cracker eating contest. These contests given Friday were the source of much amusement. A matinee dance was held in the afternoon. Apostle Melvin J. Ballard Speaks To Stud'ents Apostle Ballard addressed the students of Weber on December 22, 1922, at the Christmas program.Mr. Ballard expressed pleasure m meeting and instructing the youth of Zion, clear to him. He stated that it was the ambition of the heads of the church to prepare the youth of Zion to carry out their missions to mankind much better than they had done. He said that he wanted the young people to see and triumph. "The young people of today are the main spring of all achievements and accpmplish-ments. To carry out Christ's works should be their greatest ambition. Christ's birthday, which we shall soon celebrate, has become commercialized so that it has no relation to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords." He admonished people to lay aside worldly things and in humbleness and earnestness observe Christmas in a vastly different way from which it is now celebrated. He stated that he wanted the youth of Zion to be different from the rest of the world ; they should be leaders and not followers. Knowing who Christ is and the purpose of his mission they should be better able to appreciate him. "Christ's existence did not begin in the manger," said Apostle Ballard, "He was maker of the earth. This was not known until it was revealed to the Prophet Joseph. More light and knowledge of Jesus Christ has come from Joseph Smith than from any .other or all others together. Worlds without number were created by Jesus Christ, who acted for His Father." Mr. Ballard's talk was very interesting, and Weber students feel and appreciate the true spirit of the gospel which such men as Apostle Ballard radiate. INTERCLASS DEBATES As soon as the subject for the state high school debate is given out for the high school, interclass debates will begin. Ihese de bates will be between the dif ferent classes of the high school. The students who will partici pate in these contests are any that desire to enter the high school debating league. The members of the school team will be chosen from those contesting in the class try-outs. It is expected that a large num ber from each of the three classes will enter these try-outs. Some of the sophomores, always ready to fight, even against the greatest of odds, for the honor of their class, have already expressed a determination to capture a place on the team. Here's to you, sophs.: Weber needs representatives from all her classes. Will the College girls please define the following terms: Spat, tiff, fuss, difference, etc.? The A. B. C. A Both College and High School Teams Prepared For Championship Season WEBER HIGH MEETS OGDEN TONIGHT AT 7:30; COLLEGE CLASHES WITH B. Y. C. HERE NEXT THURSDAY The Weber College basketeers will entertain the Brigham Young College basketeers of Logan in the Weber auditorium Jan. 18. Both schools have good teams. The B. Y. C. is said to have the strongest team in the league, but the Weber men hope to "run them ragged." The B. Y. C. team has some men from the Logan High School's Intermountain championship team of 1921. They also have men from the B. Y. High School team of previous years. The Weber College team is making its very first public appearance. In previous years Weber College has not had enough men to make a full squad, but this year ' the College has plenty of good material, including two former letter men, Elvin Wilkinson and Vern Hill. These two men will strengthen the College team very materially, The other men are inexperienced but are working hard and will soon be flashy stars. About twenty-five College fellows reported for basketball. . These students are surely to be congratulated for their loyalty to the College. The members of the squad who have been chosen are: Elvin Wilkinson, Vern Hill, Olin Ririe, Floyd Barnett, Sie-man Bowman, Frances Moore, Harley Fernelius and Raymond Poulter. COLLEGE DEBATING QUESTION CHOSEN All English Students Working Hard The Junior College debating question for this year has been decided upon. It is: Resolved, that the United States should adopt the Parlimentary form of government. This question is both broad and deep and will require much research work on the part of the debators. All of the members of the Col lege English classes have been required to prepare a debate on one side or the other of the question.The winners in the class de bates will compete for places on the school teams with all ' out siders.' Weber is at more or less of a disadvantage this year due to the fact that she has so few former debators back at school. Several of the other colleges, we understand, have several experienced men. But our prospective debators are not to be discouraged and the College hopes to put some strong teams in the field. Bud Parker (after the parade) : "I'm a little hoarse." Ruth Brewer : "Well, you look like a mule to me." FOUR PAGES sums SOON The Weber basket makers will meet Ogden High on the latter's floor in the first league game of the season, Friday night, Jan. 12, at 7:30. The two teams, well coached, and in good condition, await the time eagerly. Both have been in training for over a month, and have played several practice games. The Tigers recently defeated Tooele and Morgan, while Weber has won a couple from South Cache, and broken even with L. D. S. U. in a two game series. According to the critics, the Purple and White have a slight edge on their opponents, with four of last year's first string men back, to the Tigers' three. However, the fact that the game is to be played at Ogden evens up the scale greatly. Coach Watson's men will have to fight hard in order to win. Cox, Lyons and Smith, are all experts on the Tiger team, while Budge, Couch, Halliday and Anderson are expected to hold up Weber's end of the battle in a satisfactory manner. Price, the other member of Weber's team, although inexperienced, is showing up well at guard. In Budge and Couch we have two of the best forwards ever produced at Weber, and they are sure to make a good showing in the game Friday. This is the first time that the two rivals have come against each other in the initial game of the season, and therefore should draw a record crowd. Besides the supporters of Ogden High, there will be some five or six hundred confident Weberites invade the Tiger district. Their support will help the team materially in the contest. It is expected that Coach Kap-ple's lineup will be: Smith and Martin, forwards; Lyons, center; and Cox and Blackham, guards. For Weber, Coach Watson will probably put Couch and Budge, forwards; Anderson, center; Halliday and Price, guards. WEBER HIGH SCHOOL DEFEATS WEBER COLLEGE IN FAST GAME The Weber High School basket ball team succeeded in defeating the College basket ball team 42-6. The score does not tell the true story of the game. The College played a very good game on the floor but failed to gain any points. They had many chances to score but there was a "jinx" on the basket. The ball would go half way down the basket and then jump out again. All High School players played a good brand of ball. The teams met again on Founders' Day.
