"We should all come to hear this fine speaker," says Dr. Daniel Martino, director of the Fine Arts lecture Series. Students can attend the lecture free with their ID cards. Well known to audiences as a distinguished actor who can play both romantic and sinister roles with equal facility, Vincent Price has also revealed himself as one of the top one-man performers . of the day. Witness the extraordinary success he has achieved with his platform presentations with which he has been making cross-country tours. He has communicated much enthusiasm in a recent book on art which he has compiled. Called "I Like What I Know", it dem-onstrates not only his great dis-cerhment of art but also a nice humor and adds new distinction to Mr. Price's wide reputation as an art connoisseur. Vincent Price's initial aim in life was to become a professor and collector or art, an aim that Silent majority speaks Richard Speechly, senator of arts, letters and science, comments today about an "increased awareness" on the campus. Dick is an active member of the Senate and represents the largest school of the college. . "There are some who think there is a general apathy on campus," he said. "There may be in some areas but I don't think the general student is being buffaloed. He is aware of what is going on," "Because this is a suitcase college, there seems to be a tend-ancy to suppose that the majority doesn't care what is happening on this campus, or about world issues." But in recent months, I've noticed more student awareness than I have in a long time on this campus." "The so called silent majority is actually coming alive." "An example of this is the active involvement in the SDS controversy. Even though it is an emotional topic a lot of students who approached me wanted to get at the root of the controversy and get to know the real facts." "I think I can attribute some of this to students in the Black Student Union who are bringing some of these subjects to life." "Even though the students at large will never agree fully on any one issue, they are changing to a point where we can meet to discuss, and attempt to understand the problems each side. I look for a note of optimism for the future where we can all work together on common issues." "Student Government should and can be the mediator. Many times we fall down, but I think the student should realize that we are humans ourselves, with emotions and values." "The general feeling of student government is that of wanting to understand problems and issues and attack in mature responsible manner, with unification of the students at large, realistically the majority, but ideally everyone. "It is my hope that the student at Weber State College will stay involved, not only with issues,, no matter how major or minor, and work for a common goal of unification and understanding among all groups." AMS, AWS participate in Songfest Wednesday The annual Associated Men Students and Associated Women students songfest will be held next Wednesday in the Fine Arts auditorium. Approximately twelve groups from the dorms, the sororities, and the fraternities will sing.

In past years the songfest has been one of the biggest events on campus. The rivalry between the participating groups has been keen in the past, and this year will be no exception. Groups have been practicing every morning at 6:00 a.m. since the start of the quarter so the quality of the performance promises to be exceptional.Everyone in the studentbody and the community is invited to attend Wednesday, Jan. 28 at 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts audi, torium.

One day he harkened to a dare from an English actor friend that, as a lark, he try for a role in the play "Chicago", which was to be staged soon thereafter.

|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.|
