A newspaper doesn't publish
itself. Known as "the New York
Times of the college press," The
Michigan Daily requires the tal-
ents of six staffs to put out each l
issue, so we're constantly on thel
lookout for new people.:
You maybe? Previous experi-
ence is usually unnecessary. We'll
train you,' whether you're inter-
ested in news reporting, editorial
writing, arts, business, or sports.
The photography staff, how-
ever, requires trainees to show
a considerable degree of exper-
tise in shooting and darkroom
Joining The Daily staff guar-
antees you of at least a slightly
different college experience.
Those who choose the news staff
will develop an inside knowledge
of the University and tity that
few students ever do.
Editorial writers, too, pride
themselves on "being up" on hap-
penings, proving everyday the
paper's slogan: "Eighty-two
years of editorial freedom."

journalism is the career for you.
Many of our staff go on to jobs
on big city newspapers such as
the Detroit Free Press.
While you're here, you'll get
the best training a pre-profession-
paper can offer, In addition to
teaching journalism writing (It's
quite a change from writing En-
glish papers.), we'll explain

circulation matters, dealing with
angry customers who haven't re-

"Revamp" and "overhaul" are
the passwords at the student-run
campus radio stations where the
physical plant as well as pro-
gramming has been reworked.
F o r m e r l y WCBN-AM,
the brand new WRCN-AM (650)
will broadcast 1960's oldies ex-
clusively this fall. A. carrier cur-
rent station, WRCN broadcasts
through special wires that go
only to dorms, so only dorm resi-
dents will be able to receive it.
Last year the AM station con-
centrated on "contemporary
sounds" - album cuts as well as

And what's the material re-

of work, you'll get about $35,
monthly. A paltry sum, indeed,
but it's thought of an an incen-
tive, not an exchange for services
OUR AGGRESSIVE business
Cukor explains that the new
format is more competitive since
no other Ann Arbor or Detroit
station offers the same thing.
And competition is important be-'
cause advertising revenue from
the AM station supplements the
University funding of $15,000 a
year to the WCBN complex.
IN ADDITION, to its regular
oldies programming, WRCN will
air 12-hour weekend specials on
the history of various groups
such as the Beatles, Stones, and
the Beach Boys.

Meanwhile, WCBN - FM (89.5)
will continue its musical pro-
gramming in much the same vein
as last year, with a mixture of
progressive rock, oldies, jazz,
Broadway, blues, and classical.
The FM station, licensed
"class D educational" by the
FCC (no ads), works on a block
programming format. Certain
hours of each day are marked off
for specific types of music.
Along with expanded news
broadcasts, the WCBN complex,
located in the basement of the
Student Activities Bldg., plans
to run more public affairs pro-

Students are needed to work in
