Page 4 THE SIGNPOST Charlie forte By TED COLLINS Unknown to most students at this fair place of education is the fact that we have a poor method of giving athletes their awards. The probable reason for the existence of such an injustice is that, as I was, you are in the dark about the matter. So bear with me, dear scholars, and I shall endeavor to enlighten you. Here's the dope. In order to earn a letter in a sport, an athlete has to meet some specified requirements such as winning so many tennis matches, playing a required number of quarters at football, etc. There functions here a committee known as the award committee. This committee decides upon the eligibility of the athletes to get awards. The committee takes no action, however, until about the last month of school and the players eligible for their award are given a sweater, which they pay for, in the award assembly. In other words, dear readers, a football player has to wait six months to get his award. If he is a sophomore, this means he can wear it to school about once. If he goes to another school he is prohibited from wearing it. That means he can wear it around town. But it's so hot in May, July and August that sweaters of any kind just aren't worn. To be blunt then, the Lettermen Win Intramural Track Meet YOUR PRESCRIPTION DRUG STORE ENSIGN DRUG CO. 333 24th St. Phone 623 Ogden, Utah I ! I FRESH CANNED TENNIS BALLS 25c Each ARMSTRONG SPORTING GOODS 302 - 25th Street Phone 42 sophomore football player works hard for three months, paying his own doctor bills, for a sweater which he pays for and can't wear more than a week in school or three months out of the year any place. If this is fair play and just reward, I'm an all-American fullback. The case is about the same with the other athletes: The frosh have the advantage, but then how many frosh earn their letters? I'm not aware of who is responsible for the terrible wrong, but it certainly could be remedied. It would place no great hardship on any one if the award committee functioned quarterly and the boys were given their reward when it was earned. I have talked it over with some of the athletes, and they think this is the only way to meet the issue. Three award assemblies a year wouldn't upset the school curriculum any and the boys would be honored in the season in which they earned their letter. Here's a chance to show real appreciation to the future heroes of W. C, the boys whom all the songs are made for, who keep the school in the public's eye, and who helps us carry away fond memories of school spirit. This mistreatment affords the class of '39' a chance to give the school something that will be appreciated. The Lettermen's club consisting of Eugene Johnson, president; Byrne Fernelius, vice president, and Carl Warden, treasurer, would a"".reciate the students' help in this worthy cause. Netters Prepare for Busy Season Weber tennis players are rounding into form and polishing the rough spots in their game while the ladder tournament is drawing to a close. At present positions 1, 2, and 3 on the ladder are held by Vern Stromberg, Glen Freeman, and Charles Ketchie, respectively. Unless there is some unforeseen upset, these men will represent Weber college in the Brigham Young university invitational tournament held at Provo on April 28. To one of the first three men will go the dubious honor of meeting Hal Dubois of Westminister college, who won the junior college division of the B. Y. U. meet last year. Last season Weber was defeated in all but one of the singles matches held with Westminister. All three of Westminister's singles men are returning again this year. They present a formidable barrier to Weber's success but in spite of the difficulties in the singles, it is probable that Weber will meet with great success in the doubles. It was through Weber's victories in the doubles that they were able to defeat Westminister in a match last year. Your Corner (Continued from Page 2) in a hollow, vibrating voice. "I did," he said. I turned and rushed out. As the door swung behind me, and I was out in the open once more, my head felt much lighter I was no longer rattled! What say, mugs? Let's get in touch with the boys and find out what can be done to bring about fair play. H $M I "BOWSERS" I'"' I f"Nf !

When in the course of graduation, the profs lose their dear students and find time fails to ease their sorrow, it becomes necessary for them to find some other pastime during the summer.Being an authority on weather and understanding the effects of heat, Mr. Osmond chooses to spend his summer running an ice cream business at Sixth South and State in Salt Lake. Mr. Osmond has been granted a leave of absence for next year and will attend a university. The exact school has not been named yet. Students So Bearable Dr. Robert Clark has found the thought of students so bearable that he decided to teach a six-weeks course of summer school at the B. Y. U. This will probably put him in such a condition that he will find a trip to the coast a pleasant change. There's a world's fair on there. He of the long legs and stiff classes (his exams are justification enough for any student to get stiff) will be a ranger naturalist in Grand Canyon national park. Isn't that grand? Mr. Childs seems very enthusiastic about it. He also plans a trip through the Indian country of Arizona, . Mexico, and up the coast to the San Francisco fair. Man of Few Words Mr. Trevithick, the man of few words and noble thoughts, and the first bachelor ever to become an authority on matrimony, will be at the fair in New York from June 1 to September 15. He will be a member of the Utah delegation and will give lectures on Utah state industries, education, and church activities. In the course of his lectures he expects to settle thousands of questions about polygamy. Mr. Markham will act as discussion leader for a section on office machines in San Francisco, July 3 - 7. "I am going to spend the summer putting Mr. C. H. Anderson straight", states Mr. Benson. He added that he will spend the remaining time interviewing prospective Weber students. Mr. Cluster Nilsson is seriously considering taking a course from Einstein on how to write, "because I consider it a very deep subject." He will also attend the writers' conference at Denver, Colorado. (To Be Continued Next Issue) I. T. K. Repeats Triumph For the second consecutive quarter, Iota Tau Kappa leads the clubs in the race for scholarship with a grade point average of 2.26. Otyokwa is close behind with a 2.05 average. Frenisti comes next with 2.04. The other clubs follow as listed: La Dianaeda 2.00 Phoenix 1.65 Vikings 1.6 Excelsior 1.59 Skull 1.12 Phoenix Finishes Second; Loose Track The Lettermen's club romped off with first place in the intramural track meet held Friday, March 31, at the old Ogden high school track. Phoenix finished second behind the fast-moving Lettermen. Time was held down by the loosely rolled track. The Lettermen's squad, liberally sprinkled with the Wildcats' track team to be, started off with a grand slam in the mile. Stamos finished first, followed by Smed-ing and Egglestrom. Gardiner and Bambrough boosted the Lettermen's total by finishing in that order in the 440. The Lettermen's monopoly of the points was first broken when Manfull of Phoenix swept in first in the 100 yard dash. Chatfield, Lettermen. and Baxter of Sigma Delta Pi finished second and third respectively. The Lettermen fell back into their accustomed form by taking the 8S0, mile relay, and 880 yard relay. In the two relays the Lettermen outpaced Phoenix. Phoenix continually challenged the lead. Hancock contributed his share of the points by winning the javelin throw, shotput, and finishing third in the discus. Godfrey won the pole vault, placed third in 220 yard dash, and ran in the 880 relay. Manful added a second in the 220 and ran on the 880 relay team. Gardiner and Hancock shine Eldon Gardiner, Lettermen, and Ralph Hancock, Phoenix, were the outstanding performers. Gardiner took two firsts, a second and a third; Hancock, two firsts and a third place. The Lettermen's victory in the track meet enabled them to capture the intramural lead from Excelsior. Sigma Delta Pi and T. I. C. were also handicapped by a lack of entrants. Phoenix occupies the third slot. Next week the barnyard adepts will strut their stuff when the horseshoe tournament swings into action. Events Mile: Stamos, Smeding, Egglestrom; all Lettermen.
