THE SIGNPOST Page 3 Jhs. U)suak The halls this week are as bare as the proverbial cupboard and this could be the lack of debaters or else everyone bought too much ice cream last Friday. The funniest happening of the week could easily be Bill Chambers trying to tell Donna Hogge a joke. But life is not all sunshine, is it, Hugh? Mr. Childs admits it was a difficult job "breaking the news," but Hugh had naught to say about the whole matter. He just buried his nose in the Farm and Feed magazine. After reading a page or two. he admitted he ".iust didn't understand wimmen." If you've been wondering why the gals all duck when they see Marie coming cease worrying because everything will be back to normal after the A. A. U. banquet tickets are all sold! The little girl with a lot of "it" seems to be Penny Mc. Or perhaps a better name would be "the gal friend of the basketball team. All except Florence Cash-more and Bob Clark of course. Did you say "change partners?" Anyway Nadine and Smitty found themselves with different men than they started out with the other night when the dates tossed to see who'd get the ride to Brigham. You ain't seen nothin' yet if you haven't heard these famous sayings : Ellen Wilson: "Tell him I hate him!" Marjorie Garner: "Most men acquire a polish after some gal takes a shine to them." Bill Havenor: "A golf ball is a golf ball no matter how you putt it." O. M. Clark: The seven ages of a woiman are: the infant, the little girl, the miss, the young woman, the young woman, the young woman, the young woman."Pauline admits it was an un-appreciative audience when they all laughed in the wrong place during the one-act play last Friday. And we thought Johnny died so convincingly at least it made Carlene cry! Say, Janet Paul, who was that good-looking man you were talking to the other day? He looked mighty interesting to more than one girl. We hear that a fellow with a pitcher of lemonade fell pretty hard for Maurine Jackson. (And we do mean fell). But this is really just literally speaking because she tripped him first, at a ward reunion, trying to see over a bowl of carrots p.nd peas. Nina Randall and Dale Brown (which, by the way, is a budding romance) still have to laugh everytime they think of the look on Maurine's face when she lit in the potatoes. How could Mutt and Norma S. hold out on us so long? This column will never get a scoop that way. (Congratulations.) La Dianaeda Formal To be in April The annual semi-formal dance of La Dianaeda will be held April eighth. Members are keeping the theme a secret. On Friday, April 7, the assembly will be held, Saturday night the dance, concluding with a breakfast Sunday morning. Committees have begun their work on the events.

Phoenix Plans Winter Carnival The Phoenix club is making preparations for a two-day winter carnival for its members. The club will spend the next week-end in Ogden canyon. Skiing and tobogganing will be the sports enjoyed. Fred Foulger is in charge of the arrangements.Faculty Women Entertain Lester Hinchcliff led a special mixed chorus in several numbers taken from "The Creation" at the Weber F. W. tea, March 6. Hostesses were Mrs. W. Thomson, Mrs. R. Petty, Mrs. L. Ja-cobsen, Miss L. Denning, Mrs. T. Allred, and Mrs. H. Burchell. A new system of tests could be worked out to reduce cheating. This part is up to the profs, though, not the students. And yet there is an "exam morale" that is the student's private property. LET'S Irene Coombs, Aurline Osmond, Farrell Ensign, Phyllis Cardon Beverley Briem, Nadine Madsen, Norma Barrows Student-Written Varsity Show Scheduled A varsity show brimming with collegiate humor and tantalizing swing will be the contribution of Betty Mae Nelson, Aurline Osmond, and a versatile cast, to a school year already studded with dramatic specialities. Miss Osmond, co-authoress of the show, says that it is a story which might happen at any college, but probably wouldn't. The plot begins to tangle when a young professor disguises himself as a man of about fifty-five, eludes suspicion, and wins for himself a sedate, respectable professorship at Hargrove college. His plans flow smoothly along until he falls in love with one of Hargrove's beautiful coeds, Micky Lester. Sensational cameay riots are expected to be started by the three village dopes, local jitterbugs "Butch," "Bubbles," and "Mortimer," . and asuper-animated comedienne named "Cotton." The affected pomposity of Professor Hargrove is also expected to receive hearty guffaws.The varsity show will be presented on March 29. and 30, in the college auditorium. Don't miss an opportunity because of a faulty timepiece. Opportunities won't wait, but we will ;; . your credit is good! . i BANKER tO I 7 5S RETURN THEIR COURTESY Wli'de City A. W.

Print dress week will be the first week in April. Phyllis Cardon, A. W. S. president urges all girls to participate by wearing cotton print dresses. Your Corner (Continued from Page 2) Overheard was a debate between a student and teacher at the beginning of an exam. Teacher required that books and paper be returned to the lockers so that there would be no reference to them during the test. Student was perturbed: the class was being treated like children, he said. He inferred that it should be put on its honor. Teacher indicated that experience had taught him practical lessons on honor. Both persons had their points. Teachers expect students to cheat, and so perhaps students do cheat for that reason. But things are not going as they should when a student has merely to glance at a "pony" to pass an exam. A guy gets weary of DOKOS 2522 Washington Blvd. If It's a Good Tune It Will Be Played At the BERTHANA BALLROOM WEDNESDAY & SATURDAY By CHAS. KNIGHT ORCHESTA MASTERS OF RHYTHM TRY THEM GRACEFUL BALL HELD THIS EVE Symbolic Floor Show Featured Another dance, another queen! Finale of the winter quarter is that "grand affair" the annual Acorn ball, held tonight in the White City ballroom. The ball is sponsored by the yearbook staff. Formerly it was for the principal purpose of obtaining funds for the publication of a yearbook, but in 1925 the receipts became secondary to a beautiful carnival climaxed with the coronation of the Queen of Weber college. One of seven active and attractive coeds, chosen by student vote, will reign tonight: Norma Barrows, Beverley Briem, Phyllis Cardon, Irene Coombs Farrell Ensign, Nadine Madsen, or Aurline Osmond. Floor Show A huge reproduction of the yearbook, the Acorn, will enclose the queen and her attendants. As the pages are turned to the different sections of the book, groups of feminine dancers will interpret them with humorous steps. Some of the unique dances will be: faculty, "They Too Have Their Moments" ; classes, "Hopeful Compounds of Perplexity and Sophistication"; student life, "Things Are Not All of the Mind"; society, "Without Stars, Would Heaven Be?" This clever floor show will be the build-up for her majesty, "The Queen of Queens," and her six maids. By Knapp's Orchestra By Knapp's orchestra will furnish swing for the hundreds of dancers. The dance issemi-formal and corsages are banned. Eugene Brough is general chairman in charge of arrangements; advertising, Tom Toyn; decorations, Miss Marian Read; floor show, Mrs. Russell Petty and Miss Ida Stewart. Faculty advisor is Mr. David Trevithick. Clark Gives Notice (Continued from Page 1) general scholarship to be awarded on the basis of competitive examinations. As yet scholarships to the Utah state universities have not been received, but in the past it has been the custom of each of the three universities to present one general scholarship to Weber college. Applicants for these scholarships are selected on grades, extra curricular activities and recommendation as to character, and personality. For Tuition Only All of these scholarships are for tuition only. Students interested in any of them should plan for living expenses, books and other fees. Detailed announcement of these scholarships appears on the bulletin board outside the office of the registrar. Persons qualified for these scholarships should see Dr. Clark before April 1. A. W. S. NOMINATIONS All freshman girls who aspire find a campaign manager, and begin a petition for nomination immediately. Elections will be held the first week in April. seeing open texts, scraps of paper, cards, notebooks; and sick of hearing the Charlie McCarthy act hissing through the hour as though it were respectable pss, psss, psss, ps. On the other hand, after some exams the boys have to wade through, they can hardly be blamed for snitching a glance now and then.
