He served as advisor to the French Air Ministry in 1939, and as psychological warfare officer for U.S. Naval Intelligence during World War II. From 1946-1961, Dr. Possony lectured in the graduate school of Georgetown university, during which time he was a special advisor to the U.S. Air Force at the Pentagon. He is visiting professor of the Foreign Policy Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Possony has WSC-USU tickets go on sale Feb. 6 The athletic department has been notified of the availability of tickets for the Utah State-Weber State game Feb. 23 at Logan according to Gary Crompton, assistant athletic director. Tickets to the game will be sold on a first come-first service basis beginning at 6 a.m., Feb. 6. The line will form at the east doors of the gymnasium for the tickets, which will be $2 each for a reserved chair back section: Only one ticket per identification card will be sold. The game will also be televised over Channel Two. . Approximately 600 tickets have been left for students, and full-time faculty and staff who have purchased season tickets. lectured on Communism, strategy, and international affairs throughout the United Sates and Europe.

OTTERS are playful animals. They can amuse themselves for hours playing tag in or out of the water. Excellent swimmers, otters can swim under water for a quarter of a mile without emerging for air. Many fascinating animals show off their talents in D. J. Nelson's Audubon Wildlife Film, "Three Seasons North". Yoga and skating among classes inifafed by Continuing Ed Dept. Get 50 points knocked off you driving record by taking the Driver Improvement Program, or don't drive, take up ice skating, or get a horse ! Not interested? How about taking a course in Yoga? The Continuing Education department is opening several new programs this month. Each program will be taught during evenings. No credit will be given for the courses. To qualify for the Driver Improvement program, a student must have a minimum of 50 points on his driving record. If he passes the class, 50 points will be deducated from his record. There will be one two hour session a week for four weeks. The cost will be $5 per student. The curriculum structure has been outlined by the Utah State Safety Council. Klicrobiology prof scores to receive grant of $14,000 A Weber State College microbiology faculty member has been engaged in studies on a micro-organism which is capable of degrading waste cellulose to simple sugars. $14,000 Grant Dr. Fred J. Stutzenberger, assistant professor of microbiology, received a $14,000 grant from the Bureau of Solid Waste Management, U.S. Public Health Service, to find a biological solution to the increasing problem of waste cellulose disposal. Waste To Sugars Dr. Stutzenberger found that waste cellulose, which is mostly disposed of as paper products, can be broken down by microorganisms in a regulated composting process such as that being conducted at the PHS-TVA Joint Composting project at Johnson City, Tenn., where he worked before joining the Weber State staff. The micro-organism which Dr. Stutzenberger is currently studying was isolated from the composting municipal solid waste at this project and appears to be the major cellulose decomposer To date, progress on physiological studies on this organism have revealed its minimal requirements for growth and cellulose breakdown, he said. . Work Continuing Work is now being done to determine what sugars are produced when cellulose is degraded, and also the effect which high concentrations of certain metals such as iron and aluminum have on the breakdown process. End Product The end product of the cellulose breakdown has the appearance, texture and odor of soil and a byproduct may prove to be a good soil-texturizing (not fertilizing) agent, Dr. Stutzenberger said. But before commercial development on this product can occur, a way to bring down costs of composting must be found, he said. 'Three Seasons North' Sets the Audubon theme The river otter, one of natures most delightful characters, will be the theme in D.J. Nelson's audubon production, "Three Seasons North." This Film of wildlife in the northlands will be presented by Mr. Nelson, tomorrow night, Jan. 13, in the Fine Arts Auditorium.

Interested persons should contact Mr. Peterson in room 316c in the administration building, or phone ext. 576. Ice skating and horsemanship could become part of the curriculum offered by the Physical Education department, providing enough interest is generated by two courses being offered this month by the Continuing Ed department. ' An ice skating class will begin Jan. 18. Enrollees will be charged a $5 registration fee, and a $10 lab fee. Beginning Jan. 21 at the Golden Spike Coliseum, Continuing Ed will also be directing a Horsemanship seminar. Registration is limited to persons who are 14 years of age or older. Those registering must have access to a horse. Classes will be held once a week for eight weeks. Jhe cost will be $15. To enroll, call Mr. Peterson at ext. 576. The film was made in British Columbia. Mr. Nelson traveled searching for the playful otter throughout a large lake system. This area is one of the remote wilderness in North America where otters might be studied in their own pristine environment, just as they lived there since the Great Ice Age. Other types of wildlife was filmed during his stay in the wilderness as he was searching for the otter. Mountain sheep, moose, bear, caribou, birds, and mountain lion cubs are just some of the many subjects Mr. Nelson filmed. Mr. Nelson was born, of Danish ancestry, on the Uintah Ouray Indian Reservation in Northeastern Utah. He learned during his boyhood the arts of woodsmanship from members of the Ute Dog Clan. According to Dr. Orson W. Young, D.J. Nelson is one of the best speakers from the National Audubon Society.

|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.|
