UNDAY, MAY , 1936 THE MICHIGAN DAILY
The Experiment Has Been Successful
A Step Forward Has Been Made...
The staff of the 1936 Michiganensian began operating this
year with a public annoucement that we would no longer be "Pro-
cessionary Caterpillars." In this announcement we said that we
were abandoning habit, custom, tradition, precedent, past experi-
ence, "standard practice," or whatever you may choose to call it.
We were determined to experiment, to forget the yearbook of
yesterday, and to produce the yearbook of tomorrow.
Yet, in spite of the fact that it was an experiment, we did not
procede blindly. We solicited the aid and advice of select com-
mittees from each School and College in the University. Only in
this way could we be assured that the book would fulfill the desires
of the student body. Only in this way could the Michiganensian
be truly a yearbook published by and for the student body.

MICHIGANENSIAN WILL BEGIN. Atthattimeyou may see for
yourself the yearbook of tomorrow that has become the yearbook
of today. The staff is certain that you will feel that the innovation
has brought a marked improvement and that the increased in-
terest has been justified. We are certain that you will share with
us the belief that the experiment has been successful, that a step
forward has been made.
