At a public discussion session this
afternoon, the Board of Regents will re-
ceive from the University a draft pro-
posal governing the type of motion pic-
tures on-campus film groups may show.
The proposal, written by University
President Robben Fleming, stiggests that
the movie groups exercise "mature
judgment in offering films" as a solution
to a recent controversy surrounding the
screening of pornographic motion pic-
tures on campus.
ALTHOUGH THE Regents will discuss
the recommendation at the 2 p.m. meet-
ing in the Administration Bldg., they
have scheduled no formal action on the
measure for this month's session.
T st month, the board mandated the
administration to establish some kind of
regulations concerning movies shown in
University facilities because several Re-
gents and Fleming contended that the
showing of hard-core pornographic films
has injured the University's public

First of two parts
Pizza Bob died four years ago.
Every year on August 14, the normally
long line at Pizza Bob's reaches even
more humongous proportions as custo-
mers jam the restaurant to take advan-
tage of the one-day half-price bonanza
held to commemmorate his death.
Hopefully, however, the line will be
about half as long at this years memorial
dinner because a new Pizza Bob's has
opened two doors uptown from its parent.
"WE WERE JUST getting more busi-
ness than we could handle in one store,"
commented Pizza Cliff, who was man-
ning the counter at the uptown branch.
"During the school year at lunchtime,
dinnertime and late at night, we were
struggling to put out more food than the
ovens in one store can handle. People
often had to wait as long as an hour
and a half to get their orders. And dur-
ing the Ohio State weekend and theBlues
and Jazz Festival the crowding was just
crazy," he continued.
Cliff adjusted his metal rim glasses
and put a banana-strawberry milkshake
into the stirring machine for a customer.
The shake promptly squirted him in the
face. "Down, boy," he shouted at the
"Right now," he said, wiping the pink
liqtid from his visage, "this store is just
getting the overflow from the old store.
We hope that soon we'll be getting about
half the customers to come uptown
WHY DO SO MANY eaters patronize
Pizza Bob's, now owned by Fast Eddie
and Typical Tim? In order to answer this
question properly, it is necessary to
trace back in history to the restaurant's
In 1966, towards the end of his 22-year
tenure as a cabdriver, Bob Marsh was
picking up extra money by delivering piz-
zas in his cab for Pizza Loy, which was
owned by his friend Wilson Loy. Bob
earned $1.75 an hour.
The store that is now Pizza Bob's was
part of the Pizza Loy chain of two stores
IN OCTOBER of that year, the mana-
ger of the store was informed by his doc-
tor that his lungs were in bad shape.
They were saturated by the pizza dough
flour in the store's atmosphere that he
had been inhaling for years. The doctor
ordered that he either wear a surgeon's
mask at work or get out of the busi-

As a result, Wilson Loy neededa new
