(n)d(oy - -- 0 A Drew Pearson Columnist Will Speak in FAC Monday Night By Joe S. Wright Signpost Feature Editor Drew Pearson, the Washington columnist who has probably stepped on more toes than any other reporter of our time, will be at the Fine Arts Center Monday at 8 p.m. for the second program of the Concert and Lecture series. By judgement of his colleagues, Pearson is Washington's top reporter. He covers Washington news and gets stories that other reporters can't get or dare not to print. His national syndicated column appears in over 500 newspapers in the U.S. His radio broadcasts and TV programs are seen and heard by millions. He has criticized and fought government officials, members of Congress, important business leaders and others whenever he has thought that they were not acting in the public interest. Pearson holds numerous awards, including Father of the Year (1948); the French Legion of Honor; and the First Order Star of Solidarity (Italy). Pearson co-authored "Wash ington Merry-Go-Round," "More Merry-Go-Round" and "Nine Old Men." He also helped to write "The American Diplomatic Game." In 1958, he and his junior partner. Jack Anderson, wrote "USA Second Class Power?" the story of how the U.S. lost the space race with Russia. General George C. Marshall nas said of the controversial columnist, "Pearson is one of my best inspector generals." A Saturday Review of Litera-ature poll has picked him as "the columnist whose writings exert the greatest influence on the nation."

|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.|
