The trio of plays include "Interview," which purports to show that occupations call for desensitized robots, rather than human beings with genuine feelings. Another is "TV," which will emphasize what the playwright calls "banality of popular television programming by contrasting its triteness with the indifference of those who watch the programs and determine their ratings." The third playlet, "Motel," focuses with exaggeration on the destrueliveness of the average American male and female in various states of elation, inebriation, and lust. "As a whole the plays provide a welcome relief from commonplace established values and comic complacencies," said director Robert Paul Macek. Prices are $l..r0 for the Tuesday, Wednesday and 2 p. m.

|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.|
