August 27, 1938 THE SIGNPOST rage .1 Scandal of the Weak Have you ever noticed that right lifter school lets out everything (lies !ovn to sub-zero, and the college gang either leaves town, gets a job in Kress's, or goes into hybernation? It's about the Fourth of July before you begin to wonder what has become of those friends you saw every day last winter. Where are they spending their time? And what are they doing with their college education? In fact, you have so many questions saved up when you finally do run into one of them you fairly pounce on him with enthusiasm."Well, my goodness, Pat Quinn, I haven't seen you since graduation night. Xo, you needn't tell me what you've been doing this summer because I've already read about you in the paper. You're in politics again, aren't you?" But Pat's a born politician. He'll he attending the U. of U. this fall with a couple of last year's student body officers, Bob Polidor and Leon Packer. From reports I've heard it sounds as if the squaws of Otyokwa have moved camp to California. Kate Painter, Marcia Nicholas, Jo Stone, Jane Nickson, Jean Richards, and Carlene Lindquist have crossed trails a number of times down there not to mention Evelyn Taylor and Evelyn Buehler, who have taken another name in order to become permanent Californians. And what has become of our Thespians? They have taken to the air, my dears, and you have only to set your dial on 140 frequencies (K L O to you) and you can hear the Weber College prodigies, Wayne Bundy and Jim Andrews, praising everything from Sloppy Joe's Chicken Inn to ladies' dresses and Flor-sheim shoes. The Williams twins have been parted this summer for the first time in their lives. Betty has been working at West Yellowstone Lodge, while Ellen has been indulging in appendicitis. "I'm one operation up on her," says Ellen. Oh, yes, I saw Benson the other day. "Asinine weather we're having," he said. "How are you, and at what institution are you enrolling this fall?" You know, I think Llarold is running true to form. He'll be in great condition for debate this year. Bob Askew has gone to California to attend Berkeley this year. Now I Askew, who do you think Aurline wiss miss this fall? And then there's Fred Frocrer who has been slaving away in his father's office as third assistant to the pencil sharpener. Give him another six months and I bet he'll work up to the position of secretary to the office hoy. But confidentially it is Fred's ambition to have "Fred Frocrer, Jr. and Father" on the door. The editor of this sheet last year is now a cub reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune. Not only that, but he has had several short stories I CLEVER j CORSAGES SPORT i or FORMAL j OGDEN CITY i FLORAL I The Downstairs Sport Shop Presents its 1938 University Apparel Popular Prices Authentic Stylings Fned-jV ALye Co.

Frank McQuown has what it takes to do big tliin.;s. Some day we'll all be saying, "I knew him when . . ." The student body officers for this year have been working hard all through the summer planning for next year. They tell me that every time they In.ve a meeting Merle Allen comes in breathlss complaining about plow trouble on the south-forty or the cows having insomnia. Mele runs a farm, you know. And Merle is just as efficient runn.ng our .'Indent body affairs. You'll find that at the end of the year Weber has reaped a nice harve t of successful undertakings, thanks to Merle. It has been rumored that John Lindquist has been showing the pretty feminine tourist just wdiere to park at the Motel Lynada, how to woo, and when they oughta. Oh, and here's a choice morsel. "Have you heard, he married an angel." At least Kenny Shurtleff thinks she's Grandy. They tell me that Bev Briem, Norma Barrows, and Florence Francis went for a tramp in the woods but the tramp escaped. But say, I wonder what the rest of the gang is doing. My inside information stops here. Well, we'll pick some more tidbits when school starts. Hoots and Toots By FAUG HORNE Well, here we are back to the grindstone after three months of doing nothing but sitting on our verandas wishing we had some kind of a job. I thought in my spare moments at work that it would be very helpful to the green minds of the freshmen if they knew just a little bit about the layout of dear ol' Weber. The following secrets are to be held in confidence, and never a word should be mentioned outside of classrooms, for this is our only skeleton in the closet. And so to those of you who may have been so fortunate as to sign in an eight o'clock class go these suggestions. (We should really print a map entitled, "How to get to school blindfolded," because this is the way most of our early classmen arrive. You know, both eyes closed, wishing they were still home in bed.) Here, we hope, are some useful suggestions : 1. Never stay in the Orpheum theatre later than one o'clock unless there is a stage show, because if you do it won't be long before cutting the early morning ritual will become a habit. 2. Beware of the monstrous telephone booth lurking in the main hall. Many pretty maidens have we been forced to rescue after their imprisonment in the death vault for days. 3. On entering the building use the front door, unless vou have on your anti-Hitler gas-mask. The reason for this is that there are many maneuvers at the side door, or at least that's what it looks like when the hoys are laying that huge smokescreen, with the toasted slavers two to one. 4. Sell-control is a virtue. At ail times must the freshmen remain cool and collected, even at twelve-five, when the odor of simmering meat in light brown gravy comes drifting into the English room, but you can't leave until the professor has finished a vitall recitation (not to be confused with "victual anticipation"). The fact that the bell has rung several minutes before makes no difference; you just sit and wait, or just sit, or just wait. And with these bits of advice dear greenhorns I leave you, but beware, the path is narrow and so are your brains. Our motto is: "Don't let your schooling interfere with your education."

You see. we had so much fun there last year! Even before school began we hail a "get together" in the hall-room and the most roman.ic moonlight hike to Malaln's. Then gett'n; started was fun. Hello Day was a riot of welcomings. Talk about "one big happy family" we were certainly it. By the end of the day our. friends knew everyone else's friends. But that is the Weber spirit ! The handbooks came out early, so we had no difficulty finding the address of the cute redhead in our eight o'clock class! And about the time we got pretty well acquainted with the redhead, we had a rousing big pep rally with a mammoth bon-lire and a snake dance through to.vn. Football was packed with thrills, but basketball was the sport in which Weber took the cake! Did you hear about our boys going to Denver to compete in the National A. A. U. tournament ? They made a splendid showing too. If you want to meetgood-looking girls, Weber's the place! Last year we had such a lovely crop that it was hard to decide which should be 'queens." (They were all queens in our estimation.) The Acorn boasted "Dot" Dixon, Phoenix won lovely Helen Abbott, and Excelsior's .weetheart was the petite Maxine Scillian. Then that delightful southern gal, Ruth Clements, walked away with the crown (and the prize bathing suit, at our Water Carnival. We liked to dance, and believe me our student body officers gave us our quota of dances. The Turkey Truck stands most vivid in my memory. (Perhaps because I fell flat over a kernel of corn!) The perfect "formals" during the winter and early spring months were the best ever. We did many things besides play. "Pop" Parry and the music department put on "The Vagabond King." Critics from other colleges' declared it one of the best operas presented Utah. During the winter quarter Thatch er Allred presented Miakepeares Tai-ing of the Shrew" and with Aurline and Jim taking the leads. it was reallv a success. I remember Aurline couldn't sit comfortably for a week after that last performance! She said she had been thoroughly tamed ! Weber has been famous many years for its sucee s in debate, and last year was no exception. Debaters went to Oregon, to Idaho, to C'il:forn:a, and even to the national debate tournament at Norman. Oklahoma ! I cannot begin to tell you what fun that was! Mr. Monson tells me he intends to take a number of debate trips this year, including one to Virginia, Minnesota. You ought to go. Because you're going to Weber this year, and I'm not, I get a queer feeling in the pit of my stomach when I realize that my days at Weber are over, and I can only wish 1 were vou.
