We Beg Your Pardon It has been brought to the attention of the editor that several important stories were omitted from various editions of SIGNPOST during the past quarter. Community Concert, Christmas Party and Freshman election received little, if any, publicity. For the unfortunate error, or rather errors, SIGNPOST would like to make public apology. . Of course, the milk has been spilled and little can be gained by mentioning these activities now. But, SIGNPOST promises that in following issues it will try to cover all activities and give everyone a fair share of publicity. The Editor hopes that the same "mistake will not happen again. This paper is for the students, by the students and of the students. It hopes to please everyone. The students or faculty members are invited to offer criticisms or suggestions at any time. Anyone knowing of an important event coming up is urged to contact the editor. Can't Cheer? Be Quiet I At the Weber-Compton game last Saturday evening the officials on the floor and the opposing team received several "boos" from Weber fans. Would those same fans like to go to Compton and see their team booed when a bad play was pulled or one of the Weber boys were about to shoot a free throw? Certainly not! Then why should we do it here? Generally speaking, the crowd was very considerate. However, a few poor sports in the audience resorted to jeering the players and officials. Remember, those officials have -a job to do. They try to call them as they see them. Even they are not perfect. Should we condemn an umpire because he is "only human" and makes a mistake now and then? Let's give both the teams and the officials a fair break. If you can't cheer, be quiet! Back to the Books Again Once again the students of Weber college take up their books and continue on the path of knowledge after a two-week Christmas vacation. It might be a little difficult at first, but soon everyone will be getting back to their study routines. This quarter will be a real challenge to some. A few got off to a bad start during the Autumn quarter, but the lesson has been learned and this Winter quarter's end should show an all-around improvement in grades. Probably the veterans will be most affected by this change as many entered school for the first time in several years. For the most part, they had to learn all over again how to study and space their time. For that reason, the Fall quarter was a trial period.

ICE CREAM i ;! fy F0R HEALTH ;; VzV Something new has been added! ;; Cold World Needs Social Sciences to Guide It By Darrell S. Willey In a world of hard, cold, exact sciences the people have grown away from a well rounded liberal education. Nuclear fission has placed on the shelf the Holy Bible, Spinoza, and Sho- penhauer, which occupy a world of loftiness. Science is a force that must be directed for the good and destruc tion of all. Atomic weapons are merely on the threshold of ma terial good, awaiting the man of to day. Cancer and other diseases are subject to cure by radio-activity, if but given a chance. The bad of science can onfy be put to good through the work of liberal, educated people those who are conscience of the needs of mankind and know the ways of answering those wants. Thus science needs a soul, an aid in the task of apply ing it to the average man's life. The question of "how can we take part in a world of changing social policy" may come 'to mind; the plausable answer is through the humanities and social sciences. In efforts put forth to socialize science we must avoid motives of personal nature and adhere to that which will improve the public good. Wages of liberal, social-minded educators must be raised to the level of physical scientists to keep proper minds in jobs as educators. Science Lacks Life Science as a body intellect lacks the means to give life and meaning to its work; minds engaged in la boratory work are prone to avoid that element so often present in the socially minded workers. The human element present in the so cial sciences contains tolerance, and even a desire to know of the wants of others. The physical sciences are minus this desire. The question of international tranquility hinges on the socialization of science. The fear of fellow nations would be greatly les sened if exchange students were to study more in the social science bracket and less in the science. The fundamental aspects of fear ignorance, thus enlightenment of fearful people will greatly aid a better life for the people of the world. This task, as well as others, falls into the laps of liberal edu cators, who must extend the socialized line down into the minds of students. Hard Task The task remaining before men that choose to lead in the above fields will not be easy. They will have to combat a people who are steeped in the mechanical way of lite as one of Utopia. The mechanical way of life is one of mechanical and not social origin. They will have to combat races versed in nationalism. Nationalism is opposed to a socialized science, where all men may partake of a common storehouse of knowledge cached for the use of all. The greatest task will be in convincing science proper that their works are to be the property of all nations whereby they may benefit from technical advancements made in science. From what has been said we can draw conclusions regarding the place and duties of Humanities and Social Sciences in the world of the future. Science can not build a world alone, but must be aided by the liberal educator and his students. Science lacks means to raise its efforts to the lofty heights of its deserving place in the educational world . of today. Sciences' needs are manifold recurring wars and miss-use of technical advancements offer ample proof. Thus a new frontier looms into view it is truly "One More Horizon." Jan. 22 afW. C. One of the most brilliant, stirring and penetrating lectures of the year is promised when Dr. No Young-Park appears here as guest of the Master Mind series on Jan. 22. A special assembly has been arranged for students of the college at 11 a. m., that day, as well as the evening program which starts at 7:15 p. m. Combining the subdued humor of the East with the realism of the West, the Chinese author gives, in words which it has been said "often sparkle like jewels," his lecture, "Outlook in the Far Bast." Following his eastern education in China and Japan, Dr. Park studied in Europe and in America at Harvard where he received the degrees of M. A. and Ph. D. He is the holder of many oratorical and literary prizes won in competition with American students. Dr. Park has written, "Mak'ng A New China," "An Oriental View of American Civilization," "Chinaman's Chance," and "Retreat of the West." Of "Retreat of the West," Pearl S. Buck writes, "It must be required reading for the white race." HAPPY DAYS TIME: 1 a. m. on Friday after girl-invite dance. PLACE: Front door of the men's dorm. CHARACTERS: Bob, a Weber student and Mary, a Weber co-ed who just brought Bob home from the Girl-invite dance. BOB: (As he places his hand on the door knob) Well, Mary, I sure had a swell time tonight. MARY: (stepping a little closer) Yes, it was fun, wasn't it? Ah, the band sure was good. BOB: (Partially opening the door) Yes, it sure was. Well, I guess I'll go in now. MARY: (Stepping a little closer) Kinda cold, isn't it? BOB: Yea! Gosh, Mary, 1 would like to invite you in but the dorm supervisor is pretty strict about such things and, well, you know, rules are rules. MARY: (Closing door) Yes, Ah, couldn't we sit on the steps for a while? BOB. (Hesitating) Well, I ah, I really should go in, but I guess we could talk a little while. (Both sit down on steps.) MARY: That coat looks kinda thin. Are you warm? BOB: Well, I am a little cold. (Mary places her arm around Bob.) MARY: Is that better? BOB: Yea! But I don't think the supervisor would like it. MARY: (Very sweetly) Bob. BOB: Yea. (As Bob looks at Mary she tries to kiss him.) BOB: Gosh, Mary, you shouldn't do that, after all, I've only known you two years. MARY: (Says nothing but reaches over and finally kisses Bob. Suddenly the dorm supervisor sticks his head out the door and yells, "Bob, you come in here this instant. And you, young lady, can go home.") BEFUDDLED Here We Go Again for Another Quarter. Can You Take It? Despite all the nasty cracks that-have been made about our column, we're back just to prove that we can take them if you can stand to read what we print. It's really marvelous what a college education can do for you. Thanks to it, we've discovered a very inexpensive method of getting some publicity. All you have to do is see to it that you have a library book that is overdue and your name will appear in print--on the ineligible list. More people see it too! More Daffynitions Skeleton A lot of bones with the people scraped off. Grape Wine in pill form. Grand Canyon It's gorges. Gremlin An elf-made man. Cyclone Wind exceeding the speed limit. Crow A bird that never complains without caws. One thing about most New Year's parties there's always rum for one more. Recitation Before I heard the doctors tell The dangers of a kiss, I had considered kissing you. The nearest thing to bliss. But now I know biology And sit and sigh and moan, Six million mad bicteria And I thought we were alone. It's getting quite embarrassing for people who keep trying to sit on those "little stools that aren't there" in the C. I. But maybe someday, with a little more- practice, we'll learn how ot sit on the floor gracefully. Until next time see you around! Night at the Dorm By James Osmond I sit amidst the turmoil, the chaos and the roar, And tremble 'neath the tempest of my room-mates lusty snore. Some radios are playing, a phonograph or two, And some dope next door keeps reciting, "Dangerous Dan McGrew." There's singing in the washroom and running down the halls, And others, just to make a noise, are banging on the walls. Til tell you this for certain, there are no "lffs" or "buts," If they don't bed-down pretty soon, They're going to drive me "NUTS."
