Volume 29, Number 27 i r4' f " THINK some movies have gotten to the point that they're throwing people out of work -- like the costume designer-they're all naked," Vincent Price commented at an informal press conference held February 29. Speaking with students at Promontory Tower, Air. Price discussed censorship and the effect of the loosening controls of censors in today's motion pictures. "Now they're ( movies ) so out-spoken that they're losing some of the writing.'' Vicent Price predicted a return to romance in all of the arts citing EASY RIDER as an "idyllic almost romantic story. The arts especially painting hold interest for Vincent Price which surpresses his love for the theatre and acting. As an art consultant for Sears and Roebuck and Co., Air. Price was involved in an attempt to bring art to the people into a market place where they buy other things. "I think an awful lot of people become so rarified in their appreciation of the arts that they make it apart from life -- but it is life." he stated. plans winie Help select convocations Students and faculty can help the staff of the Fine Arts select convocations for next year Possibilities for speakers are on permanent file in Jan Stott's office at the main desk of the union building.

|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.|
