The Marriott Center ticket office at Brigham Young University has given away all available tickets to hear former President Ronald Reagan speak Friday.

On Wednesday the available tickets for faculty, staff and students were handed out within two hours, said Paul C. Richards, BYU spokesman."We had to turn hundreds away," Richards said.

He anticipated the allotment of tickets for the general public would similarly be gone within hours of the ticket office opening Thursday at 7 a.m.

Reagan will speak in the Marriott Center at 2 p.m. about international current events.

The speech will be broadcast live on KBYU TV, channel 11, and on KBYU FM, 89.1.
