The Technic enjoys the dis-'
tinction of being one of the oldest
engineering college magazines as
well as the only student publica-
tion at the University not re-
sponsible to the Board in Control
of Student Publications.
Next fall will mark the Technic's
84th year of publication. The
magazine is responsible to the
dean of the engineering school.
Originally the Technic was a
technical journal designed to ap-
peal to professors. It has grad-
ually evolved into a magazine
which is less technical and ap-
peals to, students.
According to Richard Donnelly,
'66E, managing editor of the
Technic, future plans include ex-
panding coverage and readership
to the pharmacy college and
science majors in the literary col-
"In general the entire staff of
the Technic is composed of en-
gineering students," Donnelly said.
"We also try to print only articles'
written by students. This year,
with the exception of the first
issue, only student articles were
printed." Occasionally if a profes-

According to L. Karl Legatski,
'66E, Editor of the Technic, one
of the biggest problems is un-
steady writing sources. It's diffi-
cult for an undergraduate to write
an authoritative article-its like
a term paper," he explained.
The Technic is an interesting
place to work for numerous rea-
sons, Donnelly explained. Not only
does it give a student an oppor-
tunity to meet faculty members
and deans in the engineering
school but it also is an asset when
he interviews for a job.
Donnelly also explained that it
gives the student a creative outlet
which is not ordinarily provided
in the engineering curriculum.

The 'Ensian staff is set up on
three levels. The senior editors,
while not all of senior academic
standing, are selected through a
petitioning process. Graduating
senior editors make recommenda-
tions to the Board in Control of
Student Publications which makes
the final appointments.

misses the point. As, a former

The Student Directory
- Reflects Man's Spirit
The 1965-66 Student Directory,
scheduled for publication in early
October, has a listing of every
student in the University.
The directory is published
*,rough the facilities of the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications and prepared by the cam-
pus chapter of Alpha Phi Omega,
the national service fraternity..
It contains the name, local and
home address, telephone number
nd class of everyone registered
t the University. The directory
is compiled from registration-
naires which Alpha Phi Omega re-,
ceives from the administration
shortly after school begins.
Work has already begun 1h
soliciting advertising - to finance
the directory. Almost $4000 'will
e required for publication of the
fall and winter installments.
The true qualities and spirit of

The Student Directory sweeps
across the complete scope of hu-
manity-a nearly random sample
of the world, achieving nearly
complete ambiguity. Let there be
no doubt about it, the Directory is
not an easy book to read, but it
is the book of life, and nature
does not easily yield up her se-
crets unto lazy students.
Deceptively purporting simply
to list its characters alphabetical-'
ly, the Directory embodies the
most perfect symmetry of hu-
mnan experience ever achieved. And
there is no dialogue, that old dis-
torter of experience-the reader
communicates directly with the
There are a few subtle guide-
lines for the novice readers of our
generation, but with what ele-
gance and persuasion do they
operate! Notico, for instance, the
change in type size between Ron-
ald Davis and Samuel Davis: type
jsize indeed! And the book is not
without its private jokes ,either:

The "Garg" combines cartoons,
photographs, mock games, inter-
cepted letters and essays into a,
spotty kind of humor that aims
at conditions on campus, but
sometimes slips over to wider is-
Where in earlier years most of
the jokes were common knowledge
or stolen from other campus hu-
mor magazines, in the past year
Garg came up with more original:
Often the most hilarious aspect
of the Garg has been its adver-
tisements. These are almost al-
ways done in a humorous motif
and when contrasted against the
normal' advertisements of the
same merchants, do crack the hu-
mor barrier occasionally.
Many have claimed, however,
that the Gargoyle has fallen back
into old habits of pornography.
However; it is evident that the
infractions were not as serious as
in the past. The evidence is that
the Gargoyle is still around.
Last year the Gargoyle was' a.
fair financial success, as it has
been since its rebirth. In fact,
some issues were exported to (and
sold out at) Michigan State.
