fO LflAJ WEBER STATE COLLEGE r o o o 3D EN UTAH Volume 40 No. 2 ASWSC Emmy winnin Garry Marshall, Emmy winning producer, will be presenting "Comedy is a Funny Business" at this Thursday's convocation. Marshall is the creator-producer of "Happy Days," "Laverne and Shirley," "Mork and Mindy," "The Odd Couple," and this season's "Angie." The convocation, in the Val A. Browning Center Austad Auditorium at noon, will be a special two hour presentation. Marshall will tell the inside story on his creations with a film of out- . takes and blooper reels from his best shows. Marshall, a New York native, graduated from Northwestern University in 1956 with a degree X . - &i y r- r . I - - i I J' sponsors g prodii in journalism. He joined the Army and was the Production Chief of Armed Services Radio Network in Korea. It was there he received his initial exposure in television. He wrote, produced and performed for a Seoul station. After military duty, he got a job as a copy boy with the New York Daily News. As he progressed through the ranks of the paper he began writing comedy for Joey Bishop, Buddy Hackett, Alan King and others. After a stint of staff writing for the Jack Paar Show, Marshall moved to Hollywood to write for the Joey Bishop Show. The program didn't last long and Marshall began writing scripts s a ,4 ---- - CONGESTED PARKING Photo by Hex!

It was the success of this show that catapulted him to his current television fame. Marshall doesn't believe the comedy business should get too serious. He has a milkshake machine in his office and a basketball court at the studio where his shows are filmed so he and the performers, can perfect their layups between scenes. But he does believe in messages. In a recent TV Guide article he said he likes "Laverne and Shirley" because it shows that "you can muddle through no matter how bad things get." 1 s jest .

"A" decals have in the past only been sold to students after faculty and staff purchases are made. This has resulted in long lines starting as early as 3 a.m. the day student sales are available. Robert Ladd, director of auxiliary services, said the car pooling should help students to get access to "A" parking areas at a reduced price, and the college by getting more efficient use of its parking space. In addition to the shortage of "A" spaces there has also been a loss to overall parking space at Weber this year. Spaces were recently forfeited north of the WSC stadium for the construction of a new practice field. In order to be eligible for the "A" pooling stickers three or . more faculty, staff or registered students must apply for each permit. Permits will cost $15 each and no additional fee will be charged for new members of the pool. Refunds will be given to persons who have bought a regular decal and want to turn it in to join a car pool. However, no rebates or prorations will be given to individuals leaving the car pool. Participants will be issued decals for a transferrable "A" system. This will include a permanent decal for each vehicle in the car pool and one hanging permit which will have to be displayed on the vehicle being parked on campus for that day.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
