LECTURER: Sheila Bair, chair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, will present a Landon Lecture at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 2, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.

NEWS MEDIA PARKING: *NO* reserved parking spaces will be available for the lecture. Free parking is available by using your K-State media parking pass to park in any outside nonreserved or nonhandicap student or faculty/staff parking space. Please note that parking without a pass in a reserved or handicap space can result in a parking fine or the wheel-locking or towing of your vehicle. If you do not have a media parking pass, please contact K-State news services at or 785-532-6415 several days in advance of the lecture to arrange for one. Other parking options include the K-State parking garage, 17th Street and Anderson Ave., where parking is $1.50 an hour on a space-available basis. A one-day visitor parking pass also can be purchased for $4 at the information booth south of the K-State Student Union; the pass allows for the same outdoor parking as with a media parking pass. Please allow ample time for parking.

NEWS MEDIA SEATING: Seating for media will be reserved. Reserved seats for print media will be in the first few rows of the auditorium. A portion of the last row of McCain will be set aside for electronic media, where an audio distribution box will be available.
