Dixon, head o our College department, by the House of Delegates of the Utah Educational association last Saturday. At a meeting held in the House of Representatives at the State Capitol Prof. Dixon was apointed chairman of the committee to investigate the advisability of Utah joining the North Central Association of High School and Colleges. The House cf Delegates, which is the inner organization of the U. E. A., was formed to accelerate matters of business which could not be handled by the main body of teachers. Prof. Dixon represented Weber and did honor to the school as well as tr himself. The matter of affiliating with the Northwestern association was brought to the attention of the delegates by Prof. Dixon, who moved that a committee be appointed to fully investigate the situation. Our state needs afiliation with the 1074 high schools and colleges of this asociation. A direct result of the movement would be that the credits of Utah schools would be honored all over the U. S.; that all Utah teachers would be accepted as teachers in any other state without examination. Moreover, Utah schools would be slandardized and be required to operate on a higher educational basis. Prof. Dixon having championed the cause, was made chairman of the committee, which is the most important one named by the convention. Then, too, he was chosen a member of the publicity committee, which has as its purpose the enlightening of the public on the teaching profession. The number of teachers teaching in Utah, the conditions under which they work, their salaries and other infor mation will be made public by this committee from time to time. Weber students glory in this recognition of our teacher and wish him further success. WATSON REFEREES BIG GAMES Coach Watson refereed the B. Y. C. and U. of U. basket ball game at Salt Lake Saturday. He has already been engaged to officiate at other of the big college games. "Male's" reputation for clean play and ability to judge fairly are now recognized thru-out the state. prof. Dixon gains THIRD FRACAS SO BE 8 f AGED TOsiOSiflOW NIGHT is i J ; OUDEN, WEBER TRIMS DAVIS 24 to 17 What have we done? What have we clone? We've put old Davis on the bum, And that's what we've done. Well it's all over but the shouting and most of that has ceased; but we ..ont forgot, for awhile, how our team took Davis into camp, last Friday night, to the tune of 24-17. Every loyal student of Weber witnessed and shared the victory, but let's review fond memories. The local press bestowed the honor upon Schade for Weber, and Adams for Davis. We agree but insist there are others worthy of special mention, for example Jep, and Ray Lindsay. Throughout the first ha!f the play, ing was even and the period ended with the bcure of 12 to 12. The fast p'laying and basket shooting of Schade for Weber and the guarding of Adams were the features of the first half. In the second half, Kaysville ran up a lead from the start and held it until the last four minutes of play. At this point the score stood 16 to 17, for Davis. A cheer from the Weber fans brought the Purple and White players to life and staged a spectacular rally which won the game. Schade shot a clean basket from the center of the floor. The ball went to center and Jones outjumped Reeves and knocked the ball to Jeppson who passed it to Schade waiting under the basket. Weber scored two points. In the next play Jep received the ball and duplicated Schade's act. Schade pitched a foul and then the lineup changed. Claude (Shanty) Lindsay substituted for his brother Ray who injured his knee and Davis threw in three fresh men, Barnes, Muir and Jackson in an effort to turn the tables. In the remaining two minutes Jones made a basket for Weber and the game ended 27-17 for Weber. Weber's "Sixth" man was also present and played his part well. In fact even the yell masters were surprised at the response of not only the students but friends and members of the alumni who have become acquainted with Weber's yells. The local press says in this regard: "The visitors from Kaysville were drowned by the big Weber chorus, and to the alumni present, it seemed that the local church school this year is full of the enthusiastic school spirit that has made it noted over the state for loy alty to the basketball team." A complete lineup and summary follows: Weber Kaysville Jeppson L. F Merrill Schade ft. F Wiggill Jones C . Reeves Lindsay L. G. Swan Lin ford R. G Adams Substitutes Weber, C.

DANCE TO FOLLOW WEBER VICTORY What will we do? What will we do? We'll do it to the South Cache crew, And that's what we'll do. Will Weber's "Sixth" man be there? Undoubtedly. And the team will be there too, with a few more good points which have been added since last Friday. It's South Cache who will try to take Weber's scalp tomorrow night at 8 p. ni. but we have confidence that this precious part of our anatomy will be as safe as Mamie is in Lou's arms. Although twice defeated South Cache comes w:th a determination to put up a stiff contest and try to regain her lost footing. Let us avoid pver-ccn'fidience for 'Surprises have happened. Take for instance the little rally Weber staged during the last fcur minutes of last Friday's game. South Cache claims to have a nice little gift to present to Weber. But to continue the story, North Cache defeated South Cache January 19th 23 ti 12. They received the same treatment at the hands of Brigham Saturday night. North Cache beat Brig-ham last Saturday. The standing of the teams in the league to date is: North Cache, 1000 per cent; Weber, 500 per cent; Brig-ham, 500 per cent; Davis 500 per cent; South Cache .000 per cent. Weber will be defended tomorrow n:'ght by Jeppson, Jones, Lanford and Lindsay. An orchestra has been engaged for a dance to be given after the game. Student body tickets honored. Everybody out.

DAVIS BEATS WEBER 30 to 26 SECOND HALF A WEBER VICTORY In the opening game of the northern division of the State High School league, played in Kaysville high school Friday, Jan. 18, Davis defeated Weber by a score of 30' to 26. About 100 Weber fans accompanied the team and even though it was a defeat for our team the students were repaid for their journey. During the first half it seemed difficult for our boys to strike their usual stride. This period ended with a big lead to Kaysville's credit. During the intermission Coach Watson gave the Purple and White players a good stiff talk, the effect of which was displayed in the second half. From the first whistle of the half, our squad was in the game. The passing and the basket shooting was up to the standard. In fact it was a victory for Weber. Besides overcoming the big lead of Davis quint, they kept pace with the game. The general consensus of opinion was that had the playing continued for five minutes the big end of the score would have been i;1 Weber's possession. The stars of the game were many, which includes Ray Lindsay, Schade and Jones for Weber, and Mansell for Davis. Schade's excellent work from the foul line was one of the factors which cut down the big lead of the opponents. Everybody enjoyed the dance which followed the game. The summary and lineup follow: Weber Davis Jeppson rf Mansell Schade . . ., rf Adams Jones c J. Reeves Ray Lindsay . .rg Swan I.inford lg Jackson Substitute, H. Reeve, for Davis county. Summary: Field goals, Schade, 2; Jones, 2; Lindsay, 3; Man-sell, 5; Adams, 2; J. Reeves, 1; Swan, 2. Goals, from foul line, Schade, 12 out of 18; Mansell 4 out of 11. Referee, Miller. . FACULTY VERSUS FORESTRY All the thoughts of studies, grades and books were laid aside by members of our faculty last Thursday afternoon and basket ball became the paramount worry of the pedagogues. The local Forestry service sent up an aggregation to pit against the "profs." in a game of the favorite indoor winter sport. The faculty aggregation piled up a lead at the very start and were never in danger from the foresters. The game ended 56 to 10 in favor of the Prof, quint. The faculty stars were "Unch" Watson and "Red" Dixon. The game was featured by spectacular 'spills" and basket shooting. A crowd of fans from the Forestry service witnessed the contest. Dedicated to Freedom of Speech and Press No. 9 MIDYEAR GRADUATES; WEBER GREETS YOU STUDENT BODY EXTENDS HAND OF WELCOME Dear Mid-Year Graduates: Monday morning Weber opens her doors to you for your benefit. On that day the mid-year courses begin and if you grasp the ounrtunity of regivine Weber student life will become a reality. . . As a student body we sincerely welcome you to become a fellow-student, because we feel that our associations will be mutually enjoyable and profitable. Our sojourn at Weber has meant more to us than nearly any ether influence and if you partake of the same atmosphere your appreciation of life will be greatly enhanced.Weber stands for all that is true and elevating in education. The courses that begin Monday are courses in regular high school subjects and consist of the real intellectual "ttuff" that is given in all good high schools. But Weber also recognizes the fact that a moral and spiritual education is the foundation of true citizenship, ft was the moral decay of Rome that caused her fall. It is the lack of true spiritual Christianity that today impels the German army to commit murder rather than cast aside Germany's lust for world dominion. Weber correlates the teachings of the Young Men's Christian Association with the other studies of the schol room and with the ideals of 20th century humanity.And what we students enjoy most of all is the tendency to teach this side of education from the view point of practical action in life. Student body activities are fostered and you are encouraged to developself-inia-tiative and leadership. When you register you automatically become a member of our student body and you are admitted free to all games, socials and celebrations. We joyfully await the pleasure of greeting you at Weber next Monday morning at 9:00 a. m. Ernest L. Wilkinson, Pres. Weber Student Body. Savage, Watson, Pardoe, Grix, McKay and Dixon defended the faculty's "rep" and Metcalf, Blackburn, Johnson, Nichols and Palmer represented (he Forestry.
