WEBER COLLEGE EXCELS IN ACTIVITY It is the aim of Weber college to prepare its students for an effective life. Realizing that the student who has developed social responsibility is better prepared for participation in life, Weber college encourages a student activity program which provides for this development. To serve group interests within the student body and to further interest in activities, Weber college encourages the organization of clubs and associations. Our social clubs have materially aided the spirit of fellowship and enthusiasm. Each of the women's clubs is organized for a special purpose. Otyokwa, which was outstanding last year in promoting school activities and social life, aims to further again the spirit of friendship and good sportsmanship, according to president Kathleen Painter. La Dianaeda, an outstanding and successful club, not only supported school activities last year but also was an outstanding participant in athletic competition. President, Ruth Skelton, an even more successful year. Tri Vesta, under president Arilla Eyre, promotes interest in culture, socialibity, and the home. Iota Tau Kappa studies etiquette and promotes friendliness. The Whip club promotes school spirit and suports all athletic and social functions. With president, Babs Clark, at the helm, they look forward to "pepping Weber." The Riding club was organized to foster interest in riding. Aglaia promotes interest in cultural dancing. Each of the men's clubs is likewise interested in some special aim. Excelsior lived up to its aims by promoting good fellowship a n d sportsmanship. President Frank Patterson asserts that they will support all student activities and attempts to again be successful in inter-club athletics. Phoenix was organized to study student government and to support and create school spirit. President Haven Moss states that Phoenix will be one hundred per cent behind the movement that has been started to organize the Associated Men Students. Frenisti furthers aesthetic interests. President Frank Mc-Quown states, "Frenisti may become a masque club this year to further interests in drama. Phi Rho Pi is the only national honorary fraternity at Weber. National recognition has been gained by students of this club in past years. President Howard Co ray states that several teams will probably make the trip to the National Phi Rho Pi debate tournament to be held in Oklahoma this year. The Orion club and Weber club are honorary and consist of students who have received a stipulated number of merit points in recognition of services o the student body. Wildcat Eleven COACH DAVIS' CHARGES FACE BIG SEASON The Weber college football season officially opened with the issuing of uniforms at the Gym Monday, September 20, at 2:00 p. m. Practice started immediately with kicking, passing and limbering-up drills. Before the week was concluded several plays WILDCAT October 9 Branch Agricultural college at Weber. October 16 Weber at Dixie. October 23 Weber at Compton, California. October 29 Weber at U.S.A.C. (Frosh varsity). November 6 Ricks at Weber. November 11 Westminster at Weber. November 20 Weber at Albion of Twin Falls. were mastered and a scrimmage had been held with the Tigers of the Ogden high school. The wildcats clicked well in this early season tussle. Coach Gilbert Moessinger of the Tiger aggregation was surprised to find the Weber men in such fine condition this early in the season and questioned Bob Davis, the new Weber college mentor, as to how it was done. Davis explained that each player had been informed early in the summer to report for the first day of football in the best condition possible. On being questioned, Davis revealed that despite the week of training, the battle for positions on the Weber squad is a wide-open one. Up to this time he finds that prospects are average, with possibilities that the football men will be moulded into a fairly good ball club by our first game with Branch Agricultural college, October 8. Practice games with the Colorado Aggies and the Western State Teachers were telegraphed by these particular schools last week, but as the men had been deemed advisable to pass up out only several days, it was these contests. The practice tussles have been secured for this week, however, one with the Montana State Bobcats at the stadium and one each with Weber high and Ogden high at their respective fields. The new Wildcat squad is composed of about thirty-five players. More men are expected to report this week. The following is a roster of the aspirants that had reported for suits up to Friday's practice: Kermit Cawley, William Nalder, Dee Whitesides, Don Hatch, Jack Thomas, Sam Anderson, Sterling Rose, Allan Bassett, Ronald Pier-son, Charles Clark, Oliver Parson, Woodrow Call, Charles Woodcock, Bob Bagley, Ken Reed, John Paul Jones, Bart Wolthius, Jay Porter, Carl Wor-den, Phil Revell, Hubert Miller, Floyd Giles, Bill Cook, Haven Moss, George Petty, Harry Mc-Cool, Andrew Clements, Dick Russell, Byron Tomlinson, Max Wilkins, Frank Patterson, Earl Miller, and Tom Littlefield. This machine has a weight average of approximately 165 pounds. The heaviest man on the squad tips the scales at 200 pounds and the lightest packs 145 pounds of brawn. Lettermen from last year that have reported are Clark, Call, Littlefield, Miller, and Rose. Hard at Work SCHEDULE NEW SWIMMING COACH Belliston Resigns Feron Losee has been named to succeed Carl Belliston as swimming, track and field, and intramural athletics director.

CHOICE DANCE PROGRAM SPONSORED BY CLUBS AND STUDENT BODY Weber college is well known for the quality and quantity of its dances. Last year the students were well pleased with the outstanding entertainment offered by the student body and by the social clubs. Each year Excelsior, Otyokwa, La Dianaeda, and Phoenix sponsor a social evening of dancing. The dances were not only considered outstanding by the Weber students but other colleges were represented and favorable comment was made. The citizens of Ogden have expressed their satisfaction at the quality of this student activity. The planned affairs, exclusive of the many regular informal student body dances are : Autumn quarter The President's Reception The Associated Women Student's Ball The Christmas Dance Winter quarter The Associated Women Student's Ball The Acorn Ball The College Prom Spring quarter The Associated Women Student's Spring Formal Reception to the Graduates BOB DAVIS AT HELM Weber college gridiron artists will face the 1937 season with Bob Davis, former University of Utah star, at the helm.

During 1928-29 he barked signals from quarterback position and lead his team to two conference championships. The last year (1929) he captained the famous Utah Redskins of that year and was selected as all-conference quarterback. SOPHS HAVE TOUGH TIME REGISTERING (Cont.from page 2) Finally, with our courses sadly all balled up, we dejectedly plodded off to the registration window. Approaching our destination, our nostrils were assailed with a conglomerated aroma of bay rum, Listerine, Pepsodent, hair oil, olive oil, musk, Edna Wallace Hopper's face cream, Miracle, Evening in Paris, and Four Roses. Needless to say, we had to get in line and wait our turn. Well, to make a long story short, we waited and waited, thought of some of the loveliest gags involving freshmen, played three games of solitaire apiece, wrote the first paragraph of a novel, and chewed up three packages of Wrigley's doublemint in honor of a gal who has moved thirty-three miles away via the Harrison road. Finally, when our turn came, registration was closed for the day, and the window was shut in our faces. Now we ask you, is that any way for the alma mater to treat a couple of sophomores?
