Daily.
By SHELLEY WOLSON
After arriving at the University and
settling into your new environment,
inevitably the need to find a niche of
your own other than your new home will
arise.
To alleviate some of those first
feelings of displacement, coming to The
Daily can be a worthwhile step to take.
Whether or not you're journalistically
inclined, you don't have to be a Wood-
ward or Bernstein to work here.
DURING YOUR introduction to the
publication, you will discover that The
Daily is a newspaper known throughout
the country for its journalistic ex-
cellence. Thee Daily has had a hand in
breaking stories for years - since 1890,
in fact.
But The Daily is more than a
newspaper.
We're an institution here, almost as
old and maybe as bureaucratic as the
University itself. The paper is com-
pletely student-run, with no financial
assistance from the University.
MANY PRESTIGIOUS people have
worked here at one time or another. Ac-
tivist Tom Hayden, television newsman
Mike Wallace and playwright Arthur
Miller are just a few of the famous for-
mer Daily staffers.
With the wire services humming

bylines and goo

nearby, we make our home here amidst
tables strewn with coke bottles, copy
paper and jangling telephones, while
typewriters clack incessantly. We put
the paper out six days a week (five days
in the summer) sometimes by the skin
of our teeth, but always with great
pride and enthusiasm.;
There are marny areas of Daily
production to work on - we can always
use another friendly face on news, spor-
ts, arts, photo or business staff. And you
do make a little bit of money as you
learn to write headlines, write stories
and proofread copy.
THE DAILY keeps you up-to-date on
all the local news along with national
and international. Our sports depar-
tment covers every University sporting
event and' travels to away games to
bring you the extra scoop on all the dif-
ferent games' scores and details.
Our Sunday Magazine is an essential
feature of the paper. In the past, many
controversial but always interesting ar-
ticles have been written, increasing our
readers' knowledge in such areas as
student suicides, prostitution and even
a glimpse into the personality of former
University student and "Saturday
Night Live" star, Gilda Radner.
Business staff is always first in
bringing you those needed want-ads
and sublet notices, so important to
frugal University students.

BUT BESIDES the variety of spots to
choose from and the obvious learning1
experience, the most important thing
about The Daily is the people who work
here. The Daily is p place where never-
ending friendships are conceived. And
as you become an expert in city politics,;
campus features and local and national
stories, you will become well-
acquainted with crazy but lovable staf-
fers.
The Daily even provides thorough1

I times
weekly information on upcoming ever
ts - we're the authority on Universit
happenings and we set the pace in nev
coverage in this city.
We even have a 10 cent Coke machir
(it used to be five but there's inflatiot
you know.) So stop by and visit us som
time - we'll be happy to give you a tou
and hopefully strike up the beginning c
a lengthy acquaintance, whether it b
as prospective fellow Daily-ites c
communication between us and yot
the reader.

TUITION GRANTS AND LOANS:
The bucks start at Financial Aid

University Health Service is the place to go to alleviate aches and pains.
'U' Health Service:.
For wha t ails you x

By JUDY RAKOWSKY
You are facing your first year of
college at a very expensive university.
But before you sell your soul to make
ends meet, you should consult a finan-
cial aid officer to find out if you qualify
for assistance.
Millions of dollars are available each
year to help University students pay for
one of the most expensive commodities
they will ever buy-a college education.
Most of the funding comes in the form
of grants and loans available through
University, state and federal aid
programs.

GRANTS ARE financial awards
allocated to students which do not have
to be repaid. Students qualify for grants
on the basis of financial need, academic
merit or a combination of both. A num-
ber of variables contribute to the
amount of money a grant awards, but
generally, grants are smaller than
student loans because they are not
repaid.
Students who are not needy enough to
qualify for grants can often receive
loans. Presently, undergraduates can
borrow up to $2,500 per year with a
maximum accumulation of $7,500 over
four years. Graduate students are en-
titled to $5,000 per year but cannot ex-
ceed an accumulation of $15,000 over
their entire college career. Students do
not have to start paying off the loans
until nine months after graduation.
Loans are repaid at a flat seven percent
interest rate.
The University also offers a work-
study program which provides students
who are in financial need with gover-
nment-subsidized University jobs.

cial Aid Office granted 2,500 out of 4.000
freshperson requests for financial
assistance.
In addition to money available
through the office, which is located in
the Student Activities Building (SAB),
several other campus agencies allot
funds to needy students. For example,
the University's Alumni Association
handles some scholarship money and
the Student Counseling Office in Angell
Hall has information about aid
available through many other chan-
nels.
Students should also check available
resources in their own hometown
before coming to school. Money reser-
ved for college students at the regional
level often goes unawarded. Unless you
are willing to do some thorough
checking and wade through tedious
forms, your chances of getting financial
assistance are slim.
But Assistant Director of Financial
Aid Bill Groethe claims the best finan-
cial aid is careful budgeting. Ann Arbor
is one of the most expensive places to
live in the country, but thrifty living
does not necessarily mean extreme self
denial.
Groethe also suggests students write
to the Financial Aid Office (2011 SAB)
to learn about their aid alternatives. As
he points out, "It's your future, don't be
casual about this aspect."

When that first contagious
virus sweeps through your dorm
or the all-nighter you pulled for
chemistry turns into a case of the
flu, it's likely you'll end up at
University Health Service.
Although they don't make
house calls, Health Service per-
sonnel provide medical care for
whatever ails you from
mononucleosis to acne.
LOCATED AT 207 Fletcher
Street, Health Service consists of
a main medical clinic and about a
dozen specialty clinics. The facil-
ity is open from eight to five
daily in addition to handling
emergencies during the night.
Appointments are - recom-
mended butHealth Service staf-
fers do seem to realize that
illness can't always be scheduled.
Walk-in patients can receive
treatment but should be prepared
for a wait.
Students receive general
medical attention at the main
out-patient clinic, but can also
benefit from the specialty clinics
in fields such as opthamology or
psychiatry. In addition, Health

Service has its own pharmacy
and an infirmary to house studen-
ts who are too sick to stay in their
dorms.
HEALTH SERVICE places a
strong emphasis on health
education. For example, erratic
student eating habits can be
tamed at the nutrition clinic and
birth control information is
available through the gynecology
clinic.
But use of Health Service does
not come free. Every semester,
students are billed $17 to receive
Health Service benefits. In
return, students are entitled to
unlimited use of the clinics and
the care of Health Service
physicians.
Studentsboftenhave mixed
emotions about the .care Health
Service provides. Because of the
long lines, long waits and
seemingly endless hassles over
forms and identification, they are
often disappointed in the facility.
However, it is still economical
when compared to private
medical care and long lines are to
be expected at almost any
University service.
