By MITCH CANTOR
The Daily offices are not like those of
your average newspaper. Knick-
knacks, humorous items, little remem-
brances of history, are laced all over
the walls. In one corner there is an old
headline reading: "Decadence,
depravity can be fun." And not too far
from that is a photograph of a stern
looking man. Beneath the eight by ten is
the caption, "If you'd look for a job,
you'd find one!"
All right, so the Daily isn't the New
York Times. But it is a newspaper
published six days a week (five days a
week in the spring and summner) by
students that want to produce a respon-
sible paper while also gaining an in-
valuable education.

Most students busy themselves in the
Student Publications Building because
they like it. The atmosphere is usually
loose and informal, although there ten-
ds to be less socializing as deadlines
approach. Many are also there for the
valuable experience they may obtain in
journalism, business, or photography.
MONEY RARELY lures staff
writers, since most reporting and
editorial personnel earn only enough to
pay for their junk food fixes each
weekend.
Reporters for the Daily cover a
variety of issues for the student-
oriented audience. All news events and
matters affecting students and other
readers on campus are food for hungry
reporters, many of whom have "beats"

reiating to the University, such as
Regents, or Administration.
The other major sector of local
coverage includes stories relating to
Ann Arbor and all its citizens. City
beats include City Council and tran-
sportation.
LOCAL SPORTS and arts events are
also covered, and the newspaper also
features a daily editorial page.
The Daily attempts to provide a com-
plete news spectrum and carries
Associated Press and United Press In-
ternational, stories for national and
worldwide events.
New writers for the Daily are
assigned editorial duties-such as
writing headlines and photo cap-

ce, fun
tions-as well as conventional repor-
ting assignments. An annual crew of
editors is elected by the entire news
staff; sports and arts departments staf-
fers select their own editors.
Several financial aspects of the Daily
make it one of the more unique student
newspapers in the country. It is finan-,4
cially independent of the University,
meaning the Daily relies on circulation
and ad revenue to support everyday
operation.
AS A RESULT, the Daily business
staffers receive quite an education
working here. As is the case with most
news staffers, the people who work on
business for the Daily highly value the
experience they gain.

We can't afford
to waste it.

TO. MANY DAILY staffers, the Student Publications Building becomes not
only a place to gain journalistic experience, but also a refuge from the
drudgery of classes. Seated from left are summer Editorial Director Judy
