Four Different Staffs Carry
eICia1 Fi1lds Of Work
On TheMichigan Daily
Three different campus publica-
tions offer activity for students inter-
ested in journalism or all-around in-
teresting extra-curricular work. These
three, located in the Publications
Building on Maynard Street, are the
Daily, Gargoyle and Michiganensian.
The Michigan Daily, "Pacemaker"
for a number of years among college
paipers, is one of the most difficult
and, at the same time, most valuable
extra-curricular activities on cam-
pus. Demanding much more time
than other activities, the Daily staff
members must work from 20 to 40
hours weekly.
Freshmen may tryout the second
semester if eligible. Their first se-
mester they read proof and work on
minor beats. As sophomores, proof
reading and desk work is continued,
but beats are more important. Near.
the end of the sophomore year, about
10 are selected for paying jobs as
night editors. At the end of the
junior year a managing editor, edi-
torial director and city editor are
chosen by the Board in Control of
Student Publications. All three are,
salaried positions. At present Joseph
S. Mattes is managing editor, t dz

anyone who has a real sense of humor
may become a staff member despite a
lack of specific abilities.

The positions are chosen in the fol-

managing editor is chosen by a Board

from among the junior editors. He
in turn appoints the women's editor.
The art editor, whose task is to
produce all of the art work and to ad-
vise the junior editors on layouts, is
also appointed by the editor.
There are two photographers up-
on whom falls the responsibility of
obtaining all of the pictures included
in the book. The subject of these pic-

appoints a senior manager at the end
of the school year. He in turn, picks
from the sophomore staff, those who
will fill the junior positions in the
following year.
Duties of the staff may be divided
into several groups. The most impor-

Lawyers' Liberal Club

Liberal Club provides the members of
the law school with a forum at which
they may discuss current social, ec-
onomic, and political problems. In

their thinking, and seeks to encou I !e

Club or at the Union. All law students

Tau Signua Delta I
Tau Sigma Delta is an international
honorary fraternity in architecture
and the allied arts. Its aim is to pro-
duce men fit for the profession of
architecture both by virtue of their1
professional training and their con-
cept of the duty toward society on
the part of architects. The belief
that architecture is much more than
a technical profession led to the or-
ganization of Alpha chapter of Tau
Sigma Delta at Michigan in 1913. The
society, was originally founded because
of a belief that architecure owes to
the world a finer place in which to

Alpha Kappa Delta

an outstanding student activity.
Activity on the staff begins im-
mediately upon registration as a try-
out. The freshmen and sophomore
tryouts receive training that is de-
signed to fit them for the six junior
and five senior executive positions.
Work during the first two years in-
volves not only learning the routine
procedure of proof-reading, chasing
ad copy, drawing ad-layouts but al-
so involves selling advertising and
the handling of advertising accounts.
From the very first the tryout be-
comes an integral part of the staff
assuming duties that serve to test his
abilities and initiative for the junior
and senior positions.
Women may tryout for either the
women's business staff or the wom-
en's service staff, the former involv-
ing office work and the latter servic-
ing and selling advertising to ac-
counts. The senior positions as wom-
cn's business manager and women's
service manager are salaried.
Men tryouts are prepared for six
appointive ajunior managerships
awarded on a basis of merit and
ability. These and the senior man-
agerships of business manager, credit
manager, and advertising manager
are salaried positions. Ernest A.
Jones is the present business man-
ager. For additional information call
