Chas. R. Mabey. His stirring address on "The Necessity of Law Enforcement," was one of the features of the semiannual meeting' of the members of the various stake presidencies composing- the school board of education. Other prominent visitors present were, Mrs. Chas. R. Mabey, Mayor Frank Francis, Commissioner Oscar Madson, Supt. Karl Hopkins of the city schools, Supt. B. A. Fowler of the county schools, Thomas E. McKay, Secretary Jesse S. Richards of the chamber of commerce, Principal A. M. Merrill of the Ogden High School, also a number of prominent business men. In his address Governor Mabey emphasized the need today of more definite and everlasting love for the law of this land. "Law is a strange thing," he said, "We are surrounded by it all the time. It is the order of harmonizing this world. "Without law this universe would become a chaos and would be void. Without it the sun would neither shine nor would it be held in its course. Without law there would be no existence and no life. "Every thing in the universe conforms to law. There is obedience to law in all the various forms of nature even down to the minutest particle of matter. . "There are divine laws and there are human laws. Divine (Continued on Page 3) Impetus Given Debating Last week the thinkers of Weber congregated in Room 12 the room was not over crowded and formed a debating club. Dr. Terry was appointed chairman of the meeting. He announced the schedule to be followed this year and discussed the question for debate, "Resolved that for Utah, a classified property tax should be substituted for the general property tax." The organization of the club was perfected. Van Tanner, last year's president, was reelected. Myra Wright was elected vice president and David Kennedy chosen secretary.The purpose of the club is to promote intellectual activities. Prominent speakers and debaters will be obtained to instruct the members in the art of speech making. Special emphasis will be placed upon debating, including the formation of briefs, the modes of attack, kinds of proofs, etc. Interclub debates will be held giving the students opportunity to make practical use of the instructions received.Several members of the club have had debating experience in past years and with this organization working properly we can expect the development of championship teams. Fundamentals Of Success Explained By Rev. Garrison. A very interesting and educational address was delivered to the students by Rev. L. A. Garrison pastor of the local Baptist Church. His theme was "Fundamentals of Success." He stated that to be successful we must maintain high ideals; "Hitch our wagon to a star" and always have something high and noble for which we are striving. Then we must be honest. He said that the day of crooked men in business and politics is past and that today we must meet and cope with every situation honestly. A third fundamental to success is hard work. We will get nowhere without good sound effort. Rev. Garrison encouraged the students to work hard while in school and then when they left school to work ten times harder. The fourth fundamental is common sense or good judgment. He emphasized the fact that there are too many thotless people in this world, people who do not use good common "horse" sense as it is often termed. He said that a person who would apply these four simple fundamentals could achieve success and would be appreciated by his fellow men. Rev. Garrison is a graduate of Harvard university and is intensely interested in building up Ogden's educational facilities. He is loyal supporter of Weber College. Mental Measurement Course Is Offered With the beginning of the Winter quarter, a course in Scientific Measurements of Intelligence will be offered by Professor Winsor. The great importance of public education in modern scientific methods of measurement has been the reason for urging such a course. Superintendents, Supervisors and Teachers are finding that a teacher's impressions of a pupil's abilities or capacities is not a safe guide for the direction of his course. It is just as essentiial for the teacher to know the capacity of her material, as it is for the bridge builder to know the potentiality of the material with which he is to construct. Unscientific methods of the latter would not be tolerated by society. Then how much more concerned should society be, regarding scientific procedure with respect to the structure, capacity, development, and training of the child. Besides being of special importance to school officers and to students of education this course can confidently be recommended to social workers, teachers and parents, .interested in intelligence measurements. The course will be given Tuesday and Thursday evenings at (3 o'clock at Weber College. Applications for entrance to the class should be made at once. Only students of at least Sophomore standing will be admitted. We want the gym floor in two weeks! More Interest Needed; Wake-up A question propounded of late by some students is, "Are you going to enter the Grant Contest?" Too often the reply is in the negative which results in another question "Well who is?" At this juncture the names of three or four of the more experienced orators are mentioned and the matter is forgotten or crowded out by a discussion of styles, love or some other minor and mawkish theme. There is a lack of interest in this important contest. Only a few students are entering and these have had similar experience before. Where is all this hidden talent that has been preached about of late? In order that Weber may continue to progress new talent must be developed. Freshmen should seize every opportunity presented to them to bring out these dormant faculties. The Grant Contest provides a splendid opportunity to unveil these abilities, and let loose these latent forces of oratorical nature. The Same Sweet Story So Often Told "It will pay you to remember THAT; IT will more than likely be included in the final examination." How very often we have heard this sentence or similar ones the past week. How many details in every class have had this phrase attached to them. It is not strange that we wonder what our finals are going to be. This one thing' we do know it will be quite impossible for the teachers to include in them, all they are threatening to. Which proves that our teachers are real psychologists. They are aiming to harp on the bug-a-boo of final exams until we become accustomed to the thoughts of them. "Seen too oft we grow familiar with their face." But from the demonstrations of some students it appears that this constant iteration is affecting them very adversely. You hear them sigh a little louder and somewhat deeper at each repetition of the warning. And it is certain that if they continue at the present rate by the end of the quarter agonizing groans will escape from them. It is probable that their nerves will forsake them entirely before the fatal day arrives. . Whatever the effects of this forewarning" we are certain that there will be no serious shocks when examinations come. We are having it hammered into us so everlastingly hard that we know there is no escape. So it is coming, the inevitable is pressing mightily upon us. If forewarned be forearmed. Screw your courage to the sticking point and you shall not fail. EAT SPEAKS TO COLLEGE STUDENTS Board of Trustees Meet SEMI-ANNUAL MEETING OF STAKE PRESIDENTS The Board of Trustees of the Weber College held its semi-annual meeting here on Wednesday November 14th. The following members were present: Thomas E. McKay, president of the board, Rob't I. Burton, Daniel Heiner, G. E. Browning and Thomas L. Allen. John V. Bluth and H. H. Blood were excused. Important matters relative to the growth of the school occupied their attention. A number of motions were made and adopted by the board. They voted to rush the work on the gymnasium so that the basketball games can be held in it. Further, they decided to complete e-noug'h of the gym by March so that the Junior College league tournament can be stag'cd here. A motion was made which required the four stakes in Weber county to support "en masse" the Thanksgiving football game between Brig-ham Young College and Weber. The motion carried with a unanimous vote. Since the four stakes here in the city, the Mt. Ogden, Weber, North Weber and Ogden hold many of their meetings in the school buildings a motion was made that these stakes aid in defraying the operating expenses of the school. The motion carried. It was further moved that the stakes of Zion situated in this district use their influence in increasing the enrollment of Weber College to 300 students by December 3rd the beginning of the winter quarter. The motion carried. It was further agreed that Ogden stake furnish 53 additional students,' Mt. Ogden, 35; Weber, 43; North Weber, 46; North Davis, 15; Morgan, 10 and Summit 20. The board expressed its appreciation to President Tracy, the faculty and the students for the noble way in which they are carrying out the work. The growth of the College has been largely due to their efforts.

Manning SMOW After Nineteen Years AFTER MANY YEARS GYM IS BUILT The proverb "This world was not made in a day" is truly applicable to the establishment of great institutions. Time alone has the power to develop and organize the embryonic ideas of men into forces of wide influence. Nineteen years ago the faculty and student body of the Weber Stake Academy realizing the need of properly supervised physical development conceived the idea of building a Weber gymnasium. They desired to have a place in which they could conduct organized play and receive scientific training. D. O. McKay, then principal of the school waited upon the board of trustees. He explained the needs of the students and requested the board to furnish money to build a gym. The board refused to supply the necessary means but granted Pres. McKay the authority to proceed as best he could to collect the money. . Sensing their duty as true Weberites the student body of 1904-5 commenced the drive for funds. They were successful in raising two hundred dollars. This was the in-cipiency of the Weber gym. Succeeding students have continued to add to this a-mount and for years the faculty and students have worked unitedly to raise the needed funds. The business men have aided, our mothers and fathers have contributed liberally and the church has borne its share of the burden. But those unto whom we owe the greatest respect and gratitude are the students and faculty members. They are the ones who have always kept alive the desire to build a gym. They are the ones who have worked and strived when others have despaired. The gymnasium is built, after these nineteen long years of struggle. And when we enter into it let us not forget the labor, the worry and the time that it has cost. It is a vast monument to the undying loyalty of all true Weberites. doling? Education Week Observed; Wilson and Cushnahan Speak. Thomas E. McKay Visits College Thomas E. McKay president of the school board of education was a visitor at Weber last week. He expressed great joy in the progress made by the school in its initial college year, thanking Pres. Tracy, the faculty and the students for their loyal support of the institution. It is largely due to their worthy efforts that the present success has been attained. Pres. McKay holds out a great future for Weber. It is his firm belief that within a few years instead of having from two to three hundred students we will have an enrollment of from seven hundred to one thousand. He complimented the football men for their splendid playing. "The gym floor" he said, "will be ready for the basketball season." It is also the desire of the board to have the gym sufficiently completed that the Junior College tournament can be conducted there. This tournament will be a splendid advertisement for the College and a great opportunity for the business men of Ogden.

(Continued on Page 3) OLLEGE A stirring address on "The Necessity of Upholding the Constitution" was delivered before the Weber student body on Monday by President Guy C. Wilson, of the L. D. S. University. This was the feature of the first program of educational week. Miss Eva Porter, a member of Class "19", rendered two vocal solos "The Flag Without a stain" and, "Out where the West Begins." President Wilson expressed appreciation for the opportunity of speaking to the Weber students. In his address he emphasized the necessity of every American citizen upholding and sustaining the law of the land. "You and I," he said, "are in a great work there is no greater. We are in a great country there is no greater. "The mission which we have to perform as Americans is a great one. The question is, how can we measure up to the responsibilities that we have. "Man's character is measured by the size of his heart. If a man is no bigger than the town in which he lives then he is a small man. There is no place for a man who is ashamed of the community in which he was raised. We generally find that when a man is ashamed of his home town, that town is ashamed of him. "If the heart of a man does (Continued on Page 4) Prof. Terry Announces New College Catalogue The new college catalogue of Weber will be off the press in a few days. This catalogue will be interesting to the students because of several new features and because it is the first COLLEGE catalogue. A few of the new features are worthy to be mentioned here. The students will notice that all fees are to be eliminated. There will be one entrance fee charged which will entitle the student to all privileges of the school. This arrangement will effect all students who register in the school after the close of the present quarter. Students who are now registered will pay the fees agreed upon at the beginning of this school year. Another interesting' feature is the fact that the names of pupils attending school during the Autumn quarter of tli is year will be included in the catalogue. In this departure Weber is following' the lead of several well established Junior Colleges which publish their annual catalogue each fall after the opening of school. Efforts are being made to include in the catalogue a number of good pictures of the gymnasium, of our football team, and also of other tilings of interest at the present time. Gov. Mabey lectured in the 15. Y. U. assembly Wed. Nov. 21. llis talk was similar to the one he gave at Weber College last week, the subject being "The Necessity of Law Enforcement." Game Decides Junior League Title Playing in a 40 mile an hour wind storm on the local gridiron the Weberites out fought the Snow Normal aggregation and sent them south with a 440 defeat. The purple lads outplayed the visitors in every department of the game. Couch started the scoring in the first quarter with a 44 yard field goal, against the wind. He repeated the fete from the 35 yard line in the third quarter of play. The great surprise of the game was the ease with which Weber solved the touted Snow aerial attack. Hales the lengthy Weber center speared a short pass from Bagley in the begining of the second fram. and after a few fast plays, E. Wilkenson took the oval over the goal line on a 20 yard run thru right tackle. Couch kicked goal. During the same quarter Smith, the flashy Weber quarterback took the ball over on two occasions, making runs of 55 and 40 yards on intercepted passes. The half ended 230 for Weber. With the beginning of the fourth quarter and with the wind in their favor, the Purple and White warriors again tore thru Ephriam's line. Halliday tallied on a 25 yard off tackle play. Smith missed goal. Smith crossed the line for his third touchdown on a line buck and in the last few seconds of play, dashed around left end for his fourth scoring. Goal was missed on both occasions. Score by periods: Weber 3 20 3 18....44 Snow 0 0 0 0.... 0 Mighty Monarchs Felled This is the forest primeval, The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded in moss and in garments green, Indistinct in the twilight. With many threats of violence a number of students pleaded with the woodmen to spare those trees. But to no avail. G. Christen Visser, Superintendent of buildings and grounds with his assistant William B. Vander Hewl,' both men of determination, refused to submit to the desires of Weber's shade lizards. The trees were felled, two beautiful wormy Box Elder trees and with their fall their shade in whose cooling quietude our lazy lizards lounged. The extraction of these two shapely monarchs necessitates the hunting of new shady haunts where with restless brain and careless mein these laggards can find rest, rest to their weary souls. But let us not unjustly criticize the work of superintendent Visser. Our campus must be made more beautiful, so we can expect changes to be made , in the present conditions. The artistic temperament of Gus must assert itself. Bring in the books, Soph's! Let's put the drive over!
