Weber's Associated Students are also coop tended school in St. Louis before attending Yale University to major in art. After his graduation in 1933, he pursued further studies in fine arts at London University. While in London, Price went to the theatre frequently to satisfy another artistic interest, the stage. An English actor friend dated him to try for a role in the play "Chicago," which was to be staged soon thereafter. Price, then 22 years old, auditioned for the role and got it. After the first night's performance all thoughts of becoming a professor vanished from the young actor's mind. He studied acting with the same concentration that he once devoted to academic subjects.In 1935, Price made his American debut and became a Broad ing "Somewhere My Love" from the movie "Dr. Zhivago." The green, black, pink and purple motif will set the mood for the occasion in hopes that all attending will have a wonderful evening.During intermission the announcement of the most preferred man will be made and a special gift will be given him by Wayne C.

In FAC Monday Night way star overnight. In 1941, he played the sinister role of Man-ningham in "Angel Street" opposite Judith Evelyn. Critics remarked Manningham "has never been pro-trayed so effectively as the cold, sneering, implacable husband." Price has appeared in many Hollywood films, including, "Song of Bernadette, "The Baron of Arizona," "House of Wax," "The Ten Commandments," "House on Haunted Hill," "Dr. Goldfest and the Bikini Machine," and many others. His own preference in acting, he admits, is for comedy, although he admits, "I'd never turn down a villian. They're the most fun in the world to play." Price .made an appearance at the Weber State campus two years ago to talk about democracy. Fines Just Fees Weber State College traffic fines have been re -defined as traffic decal fees and the school will continue to collect fines from students for improper parking and moving violations. The problem was raised again recently when Utah Attorney General Phil L. Hansen said the University of Utah could not collect fines for moving violations. He said that such violations would have to be taken care of through the city court system. The changes brought about by the Attorney General's decision were summed up Monday by Parry D. Sorensen, assistant to the president. "The change simply means that fines for moving violations will have to be paid down town and that 'fines' will nowjbe called 'fees', he said. With the fines being collected through the city courts, the state will then get the money instead of the university. Weber State chief security officer William Carver said the school has re -defined the fines as being fees. "We are able to handle the traffic in this manner under the authority of the Board of Trustees," Carver said. "It's a matter of traffic control", he added. A student court collects the fees now assessed. The administration is not involved in handling traffic fees. Carver said his department is open to suggestions from students for better ways of handling traffic on campus. "We are always open to suggestions from students, because they are the ones most affected by traffic controls," Officer Carver said. Carver said he would like to remind the students that transcripts and registration packets will not be released until all traffic fees have been paid. Parking Lot Closed Carver said that the parking lot east of the Technical Education building will be closed Friday for survey crews in preparation for construction of the new Science Building. He said the parking lot will be closed permanently next Tuesday when actual construction will begin on the building. All students are encouraged to use the football stadium parking lot. Vincent Price f I ' IVv. ..V i r5b Ground breaking ceremonies will be held Tuesday for the building. The traffic light at 38th street has been changed to function on the amount of traffic instead of a timing mechansim. Carver said that students turning right onto Harrison Boulevard from 38th street do not have to stop at the light, but only yield to oncoming traffic. A yield right of way sign is on the corner, but many students have not seen it and wait for the light to change green before turning onto Harrison. City Owns Chuck Holes The large chuck holes on the roadway west of the institute belong to the city of Ogden, but they do not wish to spend money to repair them, Carver reported. The city owns the road, but they do not have the money to repair the chuck holes, Carver said. The state does not own the road, but they have helped fill in some of the larger holes. When the proposed administration building is constructed the road system near the institute will have to be changed again, Carver stated. Maurice Abravanel Utah Symphony Presents Student Concert The Utah Symphony under the direction of Maurice Abravanel will appear today at 11 a.m. in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium. Students, faculty and staff members are invited to attend the free concert. The program will feature George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," "An American in Paris," and highlights from the opera "Carmen," . stated Daniel L. Martino, director of the Fine Arts Center. Martino suggests that students come early to get a good seat. "Last year's concert," he said, "which was somewhat of an experiment, was a wonderful success. Students were jammed at the doors." Today's performance will feature the full orchestra, withArdean Watts as solo pianist. The music from "Carmen" should be of special interest to Weber State students, since the Fine Arts Department will be presenting the opera beginning Feb. 28.

|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.|
