Paire 10 GREELEY TRIBUNE Tats., Oct. 7, 196 Humorist Art Buchwald Will Speak Here Oct. 16 Called by Time Magazine "the most successful humorous columnist in the United States," Art Buchwald will lecture publicly at Colorado State College in the College Center ballroom on Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. In addition to his popularity as a syndicated columnist, Buchwald is also the author of many rib-lickling books, the Art Buchwald recent being "Have 1 Lied to You?" (1968), most Ever "Son of the Great Society." (1966), and ". . . And Then I Told the President" '(1965). As a performer he is heard on records, on TV, and before audiences all across the nation. His life, it would seem, is a conlinual "happening," although you might not gather that from the introduction to his latest book: "Art Bueliwald works small airless room on the lop of the Washington Monument. Subsisting on nothing but orange juice and black coffee, Buchwald writes his column in longhsnd on the backs of ol White House press : releases They''are then attached to tin legs of speedy pigeons and de livered to the 421 newspaper that- carry- his column lo every part of the civilized and un civilized world." Born in' Westchester am raised on Long Island,, he let lome in 1942 and-enlisted in tin Marines. There: he gained hi: early journalist' experience in the Pacific 'Theater,' editing hi company newspaper on Eniwc .ok, where he was stationed foi thi'ee and a half years. ' The University 'of Southern California welcomed Ms talents afler his discharge from ser vice. He was managing editor o the 'college humor magazine columnist for its paper am author 'of one of its variety shows. .Bucfiwald then went, to Paris as a student, and afler wards got a job on Variety. Early in 1949, he took a trial column to the editorial offices of the. European edition of the New York Herald Tribune. En "Paris After Dark," it was filled with off-beat tid-bits aboul Parisian night life. The edilors liked il. He was hired. By 1952, his column, by then called "Europe's Lighter Side,' was syndicated in the American press. Ten .years later, he moved his typewriler to Washington. He is 'now syndicated in over 400. newspapers throughout the U.S. and .the world: Married and the father of two girls'.andVboy-. Art Buchwald claims that his family is supposed lo supply him wilh two of his three.articles a week-or they go. . One fact remains indisputable. He is, in the words of Wal- cr Lippman, "one of the best satirists of our'time." PLAN CONTEST - Capt.
