fessor is listed as receiving
$31,500-$31,9,99-or about $6,000
more than the second highest-
paid professor. Seemingly, if one
were familiar with the educa-
tion school faculty, guessing the
identity of this top-paid pro-
fessor would not be difficult.
One aspect of this new bank
of statistics that may confuse
those attempting to study it, is
that some faculty members are
paid for teaching the nine
month "University year' while
others are paid for teaching a
twelve month fiscal year.
Thus, while two professors
may be receiving the same pay
annually, one may be working a
25 per cent longer year.
New to the 'U'?
THEN YOU ARE PROBABLY NEW TO
A& 4 .
SO HERE ARE SOME FACTS ABOUT THIS
" The Daily is run by students
" The Daily is published 5 days a week in summer, 6 in the fall.
" Circulation is around 4000 in summer, 9000 in fall
" The Daily is editorially independent of the University administration.
" The Daily is financially independent of the University administration; it is entirely supported by
advertising and paid subscriptions.
" The Daily is printed by the letterpress method. Typesetting equipment and printing press are on
the first floor of the Student Publications Building.
* The Daily has the latest news deadline in the state. (2 a.m.)
" The Daily is a member of the Associated Press.
You may think the above is designed to sell you a subscription. Well, we wouldn't refuse to take your
money, but that's not the main idea. We want you. The Daily needs students to make it work.
There are no requirements as to field of study; you need not be majoring in journalism or business
or art or anything in particular. If you have any spare time and w o u 1 d like some non-classroom
practical experience (which is hard to find at the 'U') please come over and see us. If you like to
write, you can write. If you don't like to write, you can be invaluable to the business staff. You
can learn a lot of nifty things about newspapers, about the 'U', about Ann Arbor. You can meet
people. The pay is lousy, but the people are fun.
