Blvd. Greetings o College Book Store WEBER GYMNASIUM Intramurals Provide Athletic Opportunities Intramural act vilv has been given much stress at Weber College during the last few years. This activity is carried on so that students who do not care to participate in varsity athletics will have an opportunity to compete in organized sports. Last year the social and scholastic organizations and unattached groups of the college entered teams n the various events. By doing this, individual competition was eliminated and team cooperation stressed. Track and field events, swimming, p.'ng pong, boxing, wrestling, baseball, basketball, volley ball, paddle tennis are some of the many sports that were enjoyed by the participants.As an incentive, a large silver trophy is given to the organization with the largest number of points accumulated during the year. Worden, javelin; Floyd Giles, pole vault, discus, and javelin ; Oliver Parsons, 440 yard dash, half mile run, and relay; Frank Woollcy, sprints and relay; Nick Sweeney, half mile and mile, Robert Pell, f'eld events; Jack Wright, field events. Weber hopes to regain lost laurels in the B. Y. U.. invitational meet and the Rocky Mountain Junior Conference meet. The year before last Weber won several first places, but failed to retain the title because few men placed second and third. Last year's squad was composed mostly of freshmen and did well to place a few thirds and fourths in the two major meets. Hoop Artists Graduate Swenson Opitmistic The nucelus of the Weber College 1 938 basketball team that made athletic history for Weber College has graduated. The Wildcat squad that won the Utah-Idaho Jaysee crown, later annexed the Intcrmountain A. A. U. championship, and though eliminated in the first round of competition, were stamped by critics and fans alike as "one of the best college teams ever to appear in national A. A. U. competition at Denver" no longer is intact at Weber. The five regular two-year veterans of the squad, C. Morris, F. Morris, D. Bingham, M. Wilkins, and C. Clark, have enrolled at the Utah State College and will be plalying under A. C. colors this fall. However, despite this heavy loss by graduation, Coach Reed Swenson with his usual cheery smile looks forward to moulding another winning team from the eight men remaining from the colorful 1938 casaba squad plus basic material expected from high schools of the state. "I believe our prospects look good in spite of losing six men," Coach Swenson said today. We wonder if we can look for more headlines like those of last year : "Wildcats Annex Jaysee and A. A. U. Titles,'; "Wildcats Headed for Utah-Idaho Jaysee Title"; "Weber Spanks Aggies" ; "Wildcats Down Vikings"; Weber Downs U. A. C." Weber Club in Washington From Washington, D. C, comes word of a Weber club formed there by graduates of this college.

The schedule includes games with Dixie, B. A. C, Westminister, Albion, Ricks, Mesa, and San Francirco junior colleges. Weber will be defend ng the state and intcrmountain championships, which they won during the 1937-38 season. The game with San Francisco will be played on Thanksgiving day, "ith the American Legion aiding Weber College in sponsoring the game. During the '37 season Dav's's ma-Irne met and defeated all teams in good standing in the conference. The Wildcats defeated B. A. C. 25 to 0, Dixie 18 to 0, Wc tmin'ster 7 to 0, and tied Ricks 13-13; however, the last game was awarded to Weber because Ricks had an ineligible man playing. Indications point to an equally uccessful season this 'year. Jack Thomas, who was chosen center on the Junior College all-star football eleven, and Dee Whitesides, who was chosen as fullback on the second all-star team, will be back in suits along with the following players from last season's squad : Bart Walthius. Chuck Woodcock. Oliver Parson, "Boner" Johnson, Carl Warden, ends; Don Hatch, tackle; Ken Reed, Bob Pell, backs : Sam Anderson, Harry McCool, guards. Tom Littlefield, backficld ace of two years ago, also plans to enroll this year. Besides these veterans of last year many star performers of var-ous high schools of Utah arc expected to answer the first call. Football schedule: September 11 to 18 preliminary conditioning at Coach Bob Davis's ranch (providing at least 30 players are able to attend). September 30 Dixie at St. George. October 1 B. A.

November 24 San Francisco at Ogden. Weber's open date of October 7 w:ll probably be filled with a game with the new Junior College at Price, Utah. her, and they seem to he reaping the success that was predicted for them. In spite of the many re-spsonsibilities and duties which limit their time considerably, these fellows have made an effort to keep going the old fires of friendship which started here at Weber. We hope that this will be the start of a series of Weber College clubs all over the country, wherever the graduates of our school may be. thefl. inwErsnn phone 73 ecdes bldq g den, utah Good Luck . . .
