WMI MMliu Vol. II OGDEN, UTAlf, THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1918 No. 15 D. S. U. STUDENT BODY LOSES ITS FACULTY FRIEND. Judging by the numerous changes which are taking place one would be inclined to think that nothing short o a cyc'.one or earthquake had struck Weber and its faculty. This time we are called upon to prut with another of aur big men. Not perhaps from a physical stand-pcint but from the standpoint of enthusiastic and spirited workers. Our loss comes in the person of Prof. Kimball Young who has accepted a position on the faculty of the L. D. S. University of Salt Lake. He will assume his duties next fall. That Prof. Young was the friend ot the students is evinced by the fact that whenever the good will of the student body was sought upon any subject, Prof. Young has been the person chosen by the faculty to solicit their favor. At the outbreak of the present war Prof. Young returned from Germany where he had been serving a mission for the Mormon Churcn. He completed his work at the B. Y. U. and graduated with his A. B. in English and History in 1915. After a year's pedagogical experience at Snowflake, Arizona, he went east to the University of Chicago. Here at the conclusion of a winter's work, he took his Master's degree in Sociology. He came to us last year highly recommended by his professors and former collegues. This summer he will return to Chicago to continue on for his Ph.:D. In previous years as well as this one, Weber has been called upon to part with some of her best men and the departure of Prof. Young can be looked upon almost as a customary event. A conservative statement is to say that Weber will feel keenly the loss of Prof. Young. We exiend to him our best wishes for continued success in his new labors and future life. Although nothing definite has been announced it is rumored that Prof. Roswell Belnap, now head of. the English department at the Ogden high school, will be head of our English department next year. A complete list of appointments and changes has been promised by Principal Beal for our next and final issue. WEBER STUDENTS PUR CHASE SALES AND PLEDGES TOTAL$1650 Prof. Kimball Young, head of the committee to promote the sale of Liberty Bonds in Weber reports, as this paper goes to press, the sale of $1300 worth of bonds and pledges for an additional $350 worth. The campaign will continue until May 6th. Speakers will continue to exhort you to purchase bonds and an individual campaign will be launched. It is quite probable that by the date this issue appears the sum will far exceed $2,000. WILSON UNABLE TO GIVE BACCALAUREATE SERMON. After a close vote at a recent meeting of the Senior Class, Prof. D. J. Wilson was chosen to give the baccalaureate sermon to the graduates, hut after the voting it was discovered that Prof. Wilson who is attending at the U. of California, would be unable to be at the exercises. The class immediately voted unanimously to ask former principal J as. L. Barker to deliver this address. The event is an annual affair and is scheduled by the catalogue to take place Sunday, May 19th, but it has been decided to complete the School year by May 17th. This change orill set the date for the address to the graduates ahead to Sunday, May 12th. PROBABLE CANDIDATES FOR PRES.

It is assured that Principal Beal will return, for he has plans already worked out for a more harmonious union of the students and faculty. He has promised to submit for publication in the next Herald a list of appointments to be made the Board of Education. This list will include our new instructors and other changes to be made. DOUG. LEISHMAN TO BE VALEDICTORIAN MARY WOOLLEY, DALE PHILLIPS VERA HINCKLEY, CHOSEN HONOR STUDENTS. Dougras Leishman has been chosen by the graduation committee to give the valedictory address at the commencement exercises of class '18. Mary Wooley, Vera Hinckley, and Dale Phillips were selected by the same committee as honor students. The basis upon which the selections were made was grades and student activities. In both of these Leishman has established an enviable record. Besides maintaining a high standard in class work he has held such student body positions as athletic manager for two years, editor of the Herald, reporter for the Acorn, and has participated in the Rich Contest, and School dramatics three times as well as taking an active part in debating, declamation and extemporaneous speaking. Doug is completing his high school course in two akd a half years which attests his hard work. Miss Wooley entered Weber two years ago, coming from Ogden High School where she had already won considerable honor. She now holds the office of student body vice president and president of the Girl's Association. She has won notable recognition in school dramatics and declamation.Miss Hinckley completed her Freshman work at the Box Elder High. She has been an active class worker and at present is secretary and treasurer of the Senior class. She also holds the office of school historian. Phillips entered Weber in 1911 and discontinued after completing his first year, until 1916 when he returned to complete his work". Besides the position as editor of this paper, he also holds the office of yellmaster. He has participated in dramatics and extemporaneous. Arrangements for the commencement exercises are not yet complete but will no doubt receive space in the next issue. P. S. B.

Readings by Mary Wooley and Grace Stone, a piano selection by Lettie Ririe, violin solo by Wallace Budge, and a talk by Karl Storey-comprised the program. SENIORS ENJOY BIG DEVOTIONAL PROGRAM, SWIM AND FEED AT SPRINGS COMPRISE DAYS EVENTS Last Tuesday all thoughts of graduation were set aside by memuers ot the Senior class while they enjoyed a day's holiday. The program rendered in devotional follows: Vocal Solo Bertha Farley French Horn Solo .... Lowell Ridges Remarks Ray Lindsay Talk Andrew Kasius Reading Mary Woolley Speech Czar S. Winters Vocal Selection Bertha Barker Very Few Words Dale Phillips At 12:30 the crowd embarked for the Hot Springs where they disposed of some real estate. Following the swim, luncheon was served and a dance concluded the events of the day. "JUNIOR PROM" The annual event of the Weber College Juniors, at the Berthana, Wednesday evening, was a lively success. About 500 of the college students, alumni and high school students enjoyed themselves together in a most fraternal manner, which was manifested repeatedly by encores at the conclusion of each dance, to which the Lillian Thatcher orchestra cheerfully responded. Delicious punch was served at the refreshment booth, adding much to the enjoyment of the happy crowd. The class banner was the only decoration, bearing a gilt numeral "19", a simple but effective addition to the decorative scheme of the hall. The program of twaty-jour dances furnished the amusement for the young people, and the sight of the festive party gave pleasure to some of the older persons who witnessed from the balcony of the Berth-ana the hundreds of students responding artistically to the inspiring music of the orchestra. SENIORS ORDER CLASS COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS EXEMPTION FROM FINAL EXAMS The Senior class has transacted considerable business in their recent meetings and among other important matters chose the design of their class pins. Several unique designs were submitted and the final selection w-as a plain, dull finished, shaved edge block "U" pin. In other words similar to those used last year with the exception of a plain instead of a hammered surface. Prof. Dixon, member of the committee to arrange commencement week, instituted an "era of good feeling" when he announced that the committee would recommend to the faculty that all Seniors be exempted from final examinations.
