mmm mm I DEDICATED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PRESS OFFICIAL PAPER OF WEBER ACADEMY AND COLLEGE VOL. III. OGDEN, UTAH, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1919. No. S Davis Will Hard Fight Weber's crew will line up tomorrow night against the fast Davis high team in our sixth league game. This is the second contest of the season with the Kaysville crowd, and although we won the first by a large margin, a hard tussle is expected by everyone. The men from , the south, even though out of the race for first honors, are still to be reckoned with as they are a heavy, fast bunch of bas-keteers and may prove a snag to our hopes unless our men put forth every effort to win. Our team is now in the best of condition and is going at top speed. The men are playing championship ball and barring unlucky breaks or over-confidence the especial jinx of Weber teams should come out of the conflict with flying colors. There is no need to urge the students to attend the game as the record made at past contests by the "sixth man" is one to be proud of. Never before in the history of the school has a team had the backing that the student body is giving this year's quintet. This is one of the reasons for the big showing we have made. .Weber is now leading the south-northern section with five victories and no defeats. Boxelder, our closest rival, has won four and lost one. Og-den high is third, with the State School holding down the cellar. According to the dope, we will come out on the top in our section as our victory over the Brigham team on its own floor proved the superiority of our quintet. The race in the north-northern section is very close, with the Brigham Young College having the edge. However, South Cache is giving her a close rub and may win out. WEBER SNOWS OGDEN UNDER Weber snowed Ogden high under for the second time this year when, on February 20, her quintet waltzed away with the long end of a 45 to 21 score. The game, which was witnessed by a huge crowd of over 1000 fans, was slow and, except for rare intervals, uninteresting. The Weber team, though doubling the score on their opponents, played listless ball and only in flashes displayed their usual form. Ogdcn put up a hard fight but was never in the running, being entirely outclassed. The lineup follows: Weber F.G. F.T. F.P. T.P.

Be Expected PRIZES ARE TO BE AWARDED Eighteen Dollars Will Be Given Away by the Acorn Staff The Acorn this year is making a liberal offer to all those who are loyal enough to their school to help the year-book. It is as follows: The staff will give five and one-half dollars for the best ten snapshots contributed; for the best five snapshots outside of this ten, it will give two and one-half dollars. By snapshots we mean any camera pictures taken this year of members or former members of the student body. The pictures will be judged on the day the Acorn goes to press by an impartial committee, on the following qualities: Originality, humor, interest of the student body in the pictures, and their general appearance. Besides these two prizes, the staff will have printed, free, the number of pictures that is handed in. That is, if you contribute twenty snapshots, we will print any twenty pictvo? fo'-you from twenty negatives or from one. If you hand in five pictures, we will give you five prints from any of your negatives, etc. Through this offer every one gains by handing in pictures, whether he gets a prize or not. The Acorn will have a literary department this year live, snappy, and interesting. This section depends more upon the student body for its success than any other, with the possible exception of the snapshots. We need some short stories of school life, burlesques of common everyday occurrences, parodies on famous poems, and original rhymes full of humor. The student body has enough talent to write the best-selling book ever printed use it. The one contributing the article best liked by the students will receive a prize of ten dollars at the end of the year. Every graduate keeps his Acorn as the remembrance of his happiest days at Weber; every Senior looks at the Acorn printed when he was a Freshman, to bring back to his mind the times when he could not find room 13. How much more interesting to him is a book with his own article in it, one to which he can turn with pride or laughter and say: "Remember the time when you bet the Acorn wouldn't accept that piece?" With the pleasure you give five hundred others, with the honor you give yourself, with a prize of ten dollars students, isn't it worth a few hours of your time? His Wife What makes you so tired, dear? Weren't you at the chess club all evening? Henry Yes, I was at the chess club. But it was just one move after another.

You are now at a turning point on the trail of; life; a turn that leads to future happiness and achievement, or a turn which brings a listless life, disappointments and a mere skimming of the joys of living. Which it shall be lies solely iwith you. By work and co-operatiop we succeed and the proverb, "As a man soweth, so shall he reapeth.f we find holds true in our high schoqt life. As you give and do for the institution to which you belong so shall you find joy. After all; jt is that which one does .or ui; :.:i:.J-J.:tion 5nd whh hp nive.s to the world that brings him the satisfaction, self-reliance, and broad-mindedness which go to the building of a successful career. Weber's aims are the promotion of high ideals and fair play to all. On March the tenth she throws at your disposal the services of a well equipped faculty and invites you to join us in this, our banner year. Weber possesses all the requisites and advantages of any first class high school. Her credits are accepted throughout the country and her moral code is of the highest type. For a sound, practical education, Weber presents to the prospective student all that can be desired to fit him or her for after life. Her faculty is composed of honest, efficient, conscientious men and women who are to the students, not only instructors, but fellow-students who strive to be as close and as intimate with the pupils as they would with their own children; This goes to (Continued on Page Four) if you want the time of your life, step to the Junior Carnival WINE, WOMEN, SONG Everything for a Good Time 25 Cents Tonight & Tomorrow 8 p. m. Weber Beats B. E. H. S. DEVOTIONAL DISCIPLINE BAD Students Lack of Good Breeding and Courtesy Is Very Disgusting There seems to have developed, just recently, a spirit of restlessness among the students at our devotional exercises. This restlessness is rapidly growing and if nothing is done to prevent it, will entirely disrupt our assemblies. This disturbance makes itself manifest in the talking, laughing and general noisiness of the student body. It matters not wdio the speaker is or how interesting his talk may be, slight attention is paid by many with the result that he can hardly be heard. The greatest disturbance comes from the back of the hall where some of the "feather-brains" gather. Just why they attend devotional is a problem to us. They are members of all classes so the blame cannot be placed upon any particular one. However, the class presidents should take some action in seeing that their respective class shows some respect to the person occupying the rostrum. In Weber we have one of the best organized student bodies in the state. Each day we meet in devotional exercises where the faculty and student body officers endeavor to arrange interesting programs. These programs are the one thing that makes a church institution different from a state school and are given to develop the school talent. It is extremely discouraging to those who go to a great deal of trouble to arrange these programs to have them spoiled by a few "rattlebrains." And it is very embarrassing, to say the least, to invite a visitor to address the school and have the students disgrace themselves by their discourtesy. It is evident that the faculty members are desirous of having order in our assemblies. They have made an effort to gain interest in our meetings but such action must come from the students themselves. If the disturbances do not cease, we suggest that the offenders be forced to stand and be given a severe lecture on good-breeding and courtesy. Let us support the real bulwark of jam school course . and demonstrate that we do appreciate the programs by giving them our undivided support. PHILLUP SPACE, '20 WORK ON PLAY PROGRESS Word comes from Mrs. McKay that the students taking part in "Mice and Men' are making rapid progress in their respective roles, and an even, finished performance is the outlook. A feature of the play is the introduction of music. Miss Ruth Evans will sing Robert Burns' exquisite little song, "My Love Is Like a Red, Red Rose"; and David McKay, in the role of a quaint dancing master, will play an old-time gavotte. There are still a number of roles that are yet to be given out. While they are only minor parts, still they are important in the action and will be assigned in a short time. April first and second are the dates set for the presentation. Victim What have we done? What have we done? . We've put old Brigham on the bum. That's what we've done! It took us six years to do it, but when we finally did, WE DID! Our fondest hopes have been realized; we have lived to see Weber bring home the bacon; to see the haughty Brig-hamites humbled, and to have participated in the victory. Thirteen to six tells the story of the game. And such a game! Never before in the history of the division has such a battle been fought. A game replete with spectacular plays, with sensational stops and wonderful passing! Those who were fortunate enough to witness it will never forget it. The game opened with a rush, Box-elder starting the scoring with a field goal after a few minutes of play. Schade scored our first point on a foul. A moment later, Jcp electrified the crowd by heaving one in from the center of the floor. Weber scored again. Then the Brigham fans went mad with joy when Watkins registered, bringing the tally, 5 to 4 in our favor. Time and again, the huge rrowrl rose, rheerinp' wilfllv over n spectacular stop that prevented scoring. Weber tallied a foul point and a few minutes later registered another counter. Watkins pitched a fend and the half ended 8 to 5 for Weber. Between halves, things were livened a bit by arguments conducted between our rising "Pugs" and some of the "rubes." No casualties resulted, honors being about even. Weber entered the second half with a determination to do the thing up right. A bit of clever passing and the ball was again caged. The big feature of the last half was the wonderful guarding of Lindsay and Jcp. Again and again they made almost impossible stops, shutting out their opponents, who did not score a basket during the second half. Weber tallied again. In a collision, Watkins, Box-elder's all-state forward was injured to the extent that it necessitated his removal from the game. From then on, the game came our way. Two more baskets were caged on our side while Brigham scored a lone foul in the last few minutes of play, which saved her from a shut-out. The lineup and summary is as fol-" lows: Weber F.G. F.T.
