4J STZf Vol. II OGDEN, UTAH, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1917 No. 4 L7JL7 1 m77- ATHLETIC MANAGER STUDENT-BODY FILLS VACANCY WITH LIVE WIRE As a result of the inability of Mr. Douglas Leishman to return to school until about Christmas, the student-body at its last regular meeting decided to fill the vacancy. Mr. Leishman was athletic manager last year and was so successful in holding down the job that he was elected to succeed himself this year. His inability to attend, however, threw a new light upon the subject and the student-body decided to elect a new athletic manager, in order that athletics might start and continue with a vim'. 4 As the members were scanned to see who would be a good "live" successor to "Doug," the eyes of most of the students fell on that "long and lean Kasius;" not the Prof., however, but his younger brother who is also leader of some "twelve apostles." Accordingly "Andy" was elected to perform the duties of this office along wih the other dignitaries of thestu-deni-body. To those who know him Mi. Kasius speaks for himself, as he has done in nearly all student-body af- -t fairs. During his three years at Weber he has represented his class in debating every year and has for two years been' on the school team. Last year he won the J. S. Lewis medal for extemporaneous speaking. He piloted his class as president during his Sophomore year and in his Junior year was president of the Public Service Bureau. Altho just assuming his duties, "Andy" is already arranging for the class series in basket ball, and his known policy and experience promises to bring about a rejuvenation of athletic spirit. Some new schedules making it possible for all to have a chance to exercise and play regularly can be expected at any moment. DEDICATE NEXT ISSUE TO SOLDIERS The next issue of the Herald will be dedicated to those students of Weber who have answered "Columbia's Ca';." The paper is to contain a Roll of Honor and various other news of interest to the student-soldiers. The stu lonts are requested by the editor to hand in jokes, items, or poems j of interest to soldiers. If you have received a letter from a soldier friend - Jet us have it to publish. It will be interesting for the toldiers to hear of each other's t reriences in the varies is camps. The staff suggests that thosesoldier-students who receive this paper write us a letter before Nov. 24 that we might convey to other students thru this medium your experiences and good wishes. A copy of the patriotic issue will be enclosed in each of the Christmas boxes to be mailed to our boys in khaki. The co-operation of the faculty and students with the staff will be necessary to make the issue a credit to such a cause. EAR!" TO TO BE STAGED AT ORPHEUM ON DEC. 3 AND 4 "Strongheart" has been selected by Prof. Pardoe to be the theatrical vehicle to carry the dramatic talent of Weber College. In other words the dramatic talent of Weber College will appear in "Shtrongheart," as this year's school play this year. The play will be staged at the Orpheum theater December 3 and 4. "Strongheart" is one of the greatest college plays in the United States, It has enjoyed long runs at the leading theatres of the country and has been a means of increasing the popularity of many noted actors. The plot of the play runs like this: Svangataha, or Strongheart, an Indian, doing post-graduate work at Columbia university, is charged with stealing the signals to an important football game. Shrongheart is innocent, but shields the real thief. He wins the love of a girl, but is denied the right of marriage by obligations tc. his tnlie. Prof. Pardoe, in speaking of the plav, stated that the magnitude of the play, and the short time in which to prepare, necessitates some strenuous work. However, he expressed his confidence in the integrity oft.be cast and expects to have it in pefcl feet condition when the da.te of presentation arrives. u The cast, subject to change, follows:Taylor, Sophomore ..Andrew Kasius Poss , Freshman.. Ernest Wilkinson Reade, a Grind ...Russell Petty Thome, a Special . .James Leishman Fred Skinner, a Sport. .Gordon Croft Frank Nelson, Senior. . . .Ray Lindsay Dick Livingstone, Junior Melbourne Douglas Billy Sanders, a Senior (by courtesy) Theron Jones SVANGATAHA, known as Strong-heart a PG ......

Harry West Connolly Hardy (Continued on Page Four) SOLDIERS TOMORROW PROCEEDS TO BE USED TO BUY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS Tomorrow evening Weber is to have one of the best dances she has ever known. Such is the substance of several announcements given by N. Henry Savage, chairman of the Amusement committee, and judging from all indications the announcements are right in their entirety. The dance is being given as a benelit dance for every boy now in the service cf Uncle Sam, who at any time attended Weber, and therefore, the dance speaks for itself. Credit for this idea of having a ' Weber Soldier Dance" is due to the faculty, who also began elaborate preparations for the social. But the student-body is none-the-less anxious to help make the dance a success, and the Board of Control is uniting in every way possible with the Amusement committee. The purpose of the dance is to raise enough money to buy a Christmas present for every Weber soldier boy, a motive that should bring the friends ot every one of these boys together tomorrow evening. Prof. Jensen, who has charge of securing the names and addresses of these Sons of Liberty has already found that there are 87 serving iheir country and it is thot that the number might possibly reach the 100 mark. It is hoped and expected that the dance tomorrow evening will result in just as creditable a showing of patriotism as has been manifested by these boys. The purpose of the dance being so different from other student-body activities, student-body tickets cannot be honored, but that makes no difference. This is a time of sacrifice. If jou mean to "make the world safe for democracy" come out tomorrow night. If you mean to "get behind the men behind the guns," come out tomorrow night. Let's make the boys feel that they have our support. PATRIARCH McKAY DEPARTS FROM THIS LIFE FOUNDER OF OUR SCHOOL PASSES TO HIS REWARD It is with deep regret that we mention the fact that one of the staunch, est supporters of this institution, Patriarch David McKay, has departed from this life. Still, as we look back over the life of this noble pioneer, we feel that it is almost a time for rejoicing instead of feeling sorrowful. Before this paper makes it appearance, no doubt, nearly every student will have reviewed the life of this venerable churchman, yet we cannot keep from thinking about the splendid type of manhood he represented. Neither can we do justice to this worthy pioneer. His life of splendid action speaks for itself. No man could be paid a better tribute than that he was the progenitor of one of the grandest families known. All have contributed, and are contributing,, to the true advancement of civilization All are following the splendid example set by their father and it is with pride that Weber can say that she really owes her existence to Patriarch David McKay and his children. NOW UNDERWAY PROSPECTS BRIGHTEN AS PLAY-ERS APPEAR Coach Watson received considerable encouragemc'iit Monday, Nov. 5, when s'.me twenty basket ball enthusiasts appeared for practice in response to his call for players. Among the crowd were Theron Jones,' six foot center; Art Linford, guard; Phil Jepp-scn, forward; members of last year's squad. Ray Lindsay of the Weber Juniors team, which took second place in the city league last year, appeared for practice during the week. It is hoped that Lindsey will be an effi cient substitute for "Era" Shrieves, last year's star, who is out of the game with a broken leg. "Era's" misfortune cast a sort of damper on our prospects for this year, but conditions look much improved. Some new material which promises to develop into substantial support appeared in the persons of Lucien Owens, Lee Davis and Roy Gleave. Owens comes from Flagstaff, Ariz., where he starred in football. With the removal of a little surplus avourdupois, he would fill the place Peterson occupied last year. Davis and Gleave come to us from Richfield, Utah, High school. Both have had consiuerable basket ball experience and should be able to reinforce the squad to some extent. Gleave played forward for the southern school. His manner of covering the floor and his all around athletic style proves that he is an experienced man. Ferrin, Campbell, Croft, Bingham, Barker, Hinckley, Newman, and others should make the contests for berths on the main squad interesting. A rumor is afloat that the Ogden High school, our friends up the street, will not organize a basket ball team this year. No one seems to be able to disprove or confirm the rumor but if it is so, it will take a little of the interest out of the game. As a little encouragement we might state that the general opinion around the school is that if Weber wanted to defeat High this year some hard practice would be necessary. However, if no team is organized at High we must look upon B. E. H. S. as our nearest rival. We would like to see Hi remain in the game to make it interesting.. By the time this paper has been distributed the class series will probably be under way. It is planned to have the Seniors and Freshies play Tuesday, the Juniors and Sophomores play Wednesday, Sophomores and Freshies Thursday, and the Seniors and Juniors Friday. The writer is moved by the spirit to prophesy the results of the first two games. The Seniors will defeat. the Frosh and the Sophs will defeat the Juniors. It is anticipated that as soon as the social room is complete work will commence on the stage and the removing of the side galleries. With this accomplished our floor will be in the best of shape for our big games. It is high time interest in basket ball was being aroused and some new school yells and songs worked out. If the old yells and songs were discarded and some snappy new one used in their stead, a stronger interest would be manifested. Try your hand at a new yell or school song. GIRLS' FUN-FEST TO BE REPRODUCED ; ENTIRE STUDENT BODY INVITED Here's good news for the boys. The girls have decided to reproduce their fun-fest, held about four weeks ago, and extend an invitation to the entire school. The big affair will take place Friday, November 23, at S o'clock, and it promises to be some time. The four High school classes, as well as the College, Alumni, and faculty will all be represented in the big vaudeville acts. Private rehearsals are now being held and numerous additions and changes are being made.. Mary Woolley is putting extra force and energy behind the affair. When interviewed in regards to the event she was very enthusiastic about it, but shrouded the affair in mystery. She would give no particulars . concerning the vaudeville except that it would equal any program that has "graced the boards" at Pantages. However, the editor will vouch for the first-class quality of the affair. He ought to know because he was included in the small number of males who wit-liessed the affair at its last presentation. Mrs. Kimball Young has charge of the large girls' chorus which will make its initial appearance during the evening. "Eye-openers" for the boys are promised by the female members of the faculty and alumni, besides other tricks Miss Woolley has up her sleeve. The vaudeville will be followed by a character dancing party. In order to insure a good time it is expected that everyone will appear in cos-tume. Some very novel and pretty effects were displayed at the last affair, but it is expected that- more surprises are in store. Squash pie will comprise the refreshments for the evening. No war tax will be levied upon the tickets and 15 cents will include admission to the vaudeville and dance. MRS. SHURTLIFF SERIOUSLY ILL ENGLISH INSTRUCTOR CONFINED TO DEE HOSPITAL Word comes to the staff as this paper goes to press that Mrs. Ida A. Shurtliff, instructor in English, is critically ill at the Dee hospital; but e hope when this issue appears she will be well on the road to recovery. She became ill about three weeks ago at her home at Harrisville, but her condition became worse and she v-s removed to the hospital, where an operation was performed. Members of the faculty and student-bedy have visited her at the hospital and state that she maintains splendid strength and cheerfulness. It is hoped hat she may soon regain her strength and be with us soon. Mrs. Shurtliff's classes are being conducted by Miss Parry from the State School for the Deaf and Blind with the assistance of Professors Young and Kasius.
