nsian Captures Year's Events

5 erates."
Tryouts work under the direc-
tion of the Personnel Manager on
the large group projects. Here the
new staff members are taught the
proper procedure for all 'Ensian
work. After the initial training
period, tryouts choose a section
that they wish to work on.
Chooses Staff
At this time, a new person de-
cides whether he wishes to work
with a junior editor in obtaining
either copy or photographs to
develop properly one of the year-
book's sections.
The business side of the book
has a structure very similar to
X;that of the editorial staff. The
Business Manager is assisted by
several senior and junior editors
and by a tryout program.
"These people plan and execute
all methods known in order to
provide the necessary money that
lets the editorial staff portray the
year's happenings," Martin com-
mented. Advertising, group con-
tracts and campus sales of the
books are some of the business
staff's primary concerns.

began early last spring with the
selection of the junior and senior
staffs. The senior staff planned

ROLL 'EM-Shortly after 3 a.m. six mornings a week, The Daily's $120,000 rotary press begins to print the 7,000 copys which will be
distributed the following morning. The press, composed of three units, can print up to 1 pages in a single press run. It is completely
automatic, one of the more important features which makes The Daily shop one of the finest among American college newspapers.
