Topol Reports Daily Efficiently Run

New Funds To Provide
For Language Courses

Stephen Topol, '59, bought his
"last nickel coke" from The Daily's
i. coke dispenser and then wandere
around the Student Publications
Bldg. looking for a place to sit
down and reflect upon his experi.
ences as Daily business manager.
The Daily city room was crowd-
ed and noisy.
"When someone unfamiliar with
newspaper offices walks in here,
they wonder how the newspaper
gets out every day. But beneath all
the hubbub, there is an efficient or-
ganization. "This was demon-
strated pretty well, I think, dur-
ing the Ann Arbor News strike
last winter. Both the editorial and
the business staffs were able tc
handle the extra amount of work
without too much difficulty..
well, at least they didn't kill them-
Topol ambled out of the cit
room into the corridor.
As he passed the building's new
coffee machine, Topol comme'nted
that this improvement "didn't cost
us a cent." It was installed as a
service to those' using the build-
Since the senior edit office and
the 'Ensian office were occupied
Topol walked downstairs to the
z conference room. Since there were
only two small conferences taking
place in the room, Topol decided
to sit down there.
Topol thought back upon all the
nights that he had held confer-
ences in this room. "When I joined
The Daily as a first semester
freshman, I only dropped into Th(
Daily a few hours in the after-
noon once or twice a week.
"But as my interest and my re-

By this time the noise in the
conference room had increased.
Topol commented, "Let's get out
of here, so we can hear each other-"
The Gargoyle-Generation office
was busy.



Choice Offered
"Looks like we've got to use
either the men's room or the car-
rier's room," Topol commented.
Settling down in the carrier's
room, which leads out to the park-
ing lot and hence becomes a thru-
way in the late afternoon, Topol
explained how he became inter-
ested in The Daily business staff.
When he came to Michigan he was
interested, in working for The
Daily, (Under questioning, he ad-
mitted that he was editor of his
high school paper.)
He did not want to write for The
Daily, because he thought that it
would take too much time, he
commented a little ruefully. (He
estimated that he spent 20 to 25
hours a week at The Daily when
he was business manager.) So he
decided to join the business staff.
Time Limited
"When I came up to school, I
was planning to become a dentist,"
Topol explained. "As a first semnes-
ter sophomore I was taking'both
Latin and physics. Taking both
those subjects and working for
The Daily didn't leave enough time
for anything else.
My counselor advised me to
make up my mind whether I want-
ed to become a dentist or work for
a newspaper. If I wanted to be a
dentist, he suggested that I quit
The Daily and concentrate on my
studies, and if I wanted to go into
newspaper work, I should drop
some of my science load.
"I wrote home to my .parents
that I was coming home for
Thanksgiving and I had some-
thing important to talk about.
(Since Topol lives in New York,
he generally didn't go home for
"After a big Thanksgiving din-
ner, we went into the living room,
and I explained the situation to
them. They asked me what I want-

The University hopes to receivef
funds from the National Defensel
Education Act to provide for in-
tensive courses and advancedI

partment, and Prof. Deming
Brown, chairman of the Slavic1

ment, said recently.
An intensive course in the Por-
tuguese language, also provided
for by the Act, is being considered
and will possibly be offered next

chairman of the romance lan-
guages and literatures depart-

Prof. Deming Brown empha-

Applicants with a knowledge of

the language will receive prefer-

ed to go into newspaper work.
They smiled and said that they
were just waiting for me to make
up my own mind."
Topol explained that last sum-
mer he worked in the business of-
fice of the New York Times. He
plans to go to work for them in
June. In addition to this, he will4
attend night school to work for a
master's degree in business ad-

Topol explained that he thought
college should combine three fac-
tors: studies, social life and activi-
ties. "If one approaches activities
maturely, they shouldn't get in
the way of the other two. You
learn to do things more efficient-
He said that he decided to stay
in the literary college, rather than
go into business administration
school, because he felt it was nec-
essary to get a broad education.
