Union Deadline

For Life Membership
All graduating male seniors had

nine more school days until exam-
inations, the deadline for getting the
gold pin and certificate.
The certificate and gold pin which
is given without charge may be called
for at the business offices of the
Union, located directly beneath the
front stairway. Any senior who has
completed four accredited years of
academic work is eligible to receive
a life membership. Summer session
work is given credit in determining
eligibility for a life membership. ,
The tradition of Union life mem-
berships began in 1926, and since
that time upwards of 12,000 pins
and certificates have been given, an
average of 800 a year.

ous Orbit", will be discussed from

posed of members of the astronomy

to the astronomer.
Tomorrow's meeting will be pre-
ceded by a tea.

Mady Christians walked into a
Speech 41 class yesterday to watch
University students emote.
Bona fide daughter of the theatre,
protegee of the internationally known
Max Reinhardt, star of Broadway
and Hollywood, and at present lead-
ing "lady in the Dramatic Season's
"The Winter's Tale", she was not ex-
actly interested in picking up point-
ers from the aspiring Thespians, but
revealed that the visit sprang from
her interest in colleges as a training
ground for the legitimate theatre.
The class, conducted by Frederic
0. Crandall, worked with short in-
tepretive scenes, and afforded her the
opportunity to watch some of their
fundamental stage preparation.
"It's all very fine," confided the
affable, light-complexioned actress
afterwards in an interview, "that is,
as an appreciation course. But as
for actual professional training-it
lacks so much!"
Although complimenting Crandall
on his "excellent direction," Miss
Christians pointed out that while
'inner visualization' and emotional
development are definite requirements
in young hopefuls, diction and tech-
nique will secure them parts.
"First appearances are so import-
ant," she explained. "If a youngster
cannot project his voice, nor sound
his vowels correctly, a producer will
look no further. I think diction,
thus, should be the starting point."
Miss Chritsains, who has associat-
ed with such actors as Maurice Ev-
ans in "Hamlet" and "Henry IV",
and successful Hollywood actors in
"Come and Ge It" and "Heidi", de-
clared that after technical training
here students seeking a career on the
stage might gain small town and stock
"A combination of both University
and stock training is the best pos-
sible background preparation," she
opined finally, but questioned the fu-
ture of the horde of stage aspirants
graduating each year. "Only those
with striking talent should be en-
couraged," she warned. "The stage is
honestly a heart-break career. I

A nos -for news-

THE CITY ROOM knows him no more.
He has passed on to some private and personal
Nirvana of his own, where every typewriter has
all its keys and a bottle waits at every four-alarm
And the only epitaph he would have wished is
this .. ."He was a good reporter."
His greatest, and most unconscious, character-
istic was an insatiable curiosity. He seethed with
questions. Nothing was as it seemed, and he picked
frantically at surface facts until the shell broke and
the muck, or the treasure, underneath was exposed
to his greedy mind.
i With or without the vine leaves in his hair, his
sense of news verged on the occult. He knew bish-
ops and gunmen, politicians and pickpockets, and
treated both the great and the sham with the same
casual impertinence. His mind was a brimming
pool of assorted facts, which he turned on and off
like a tap.
Under a glass-hard exterior, he had a heart as
soft as mush. He rooted fiercely for the underdog,
perhaps because he was so much the underdog
He got paid very little-and when other people
talked of the "profession of journalism" his was
the loudest laugh.
. Sometimes he grew out of it. Sometimes he be-
came a famous columnist, a noted author, or even
an Editor. But mostly he grew old at 45. And
when he saw a new youngster in the City Room he
figured the best thing he could do was to take him

But he left behind him a legacy of incalculable
,value to the nation. For he established the tradi-
tion of good reporting as the foundation of a free
What happened? Who did it? Where? When?
As long as these questions can be asked by good
reporters free to write the truest and frankest an-
swers they can find, freedom will have survived.
True, since the days of the old-time reporter,
both men aqid minds have changed. The reporter
of today is a better man than his predecessor. He has
to be. He is better-educated, better-paid. Neither
he nor his editor can get away with the cheap sen-
sationalism of yesterday's Yellow Journalism-and
neither of them insists on any special license to
get drunk. The reporter's passport today is re-
spected everywhere, and he is expected to live up
to the code of his profession.
Too, America's appetite for news has grown
sharper. It takes some 25,000 local reporters and
1,888 daily newspapers to gratify it. Altogether,
300,000 men and women are engaged in telling
you what is happening in the world, with all the
trimmings you're accustomed to-comic strips,
women's pages, photographs, society notes, advice
to the lovelorn, columnists, cartoons, editorials,
crossword puzzles.
But whatever the extra values newspapers and

For the Newsmagazine has, as grist for its
weekly mill, all that has been found out by all the
world's good reporters. Sometimes these good re-
porters are TIME's own correspondents or legmen.
Sometimes they work for one of the great Press
Associations. Sometimes they are obscure people
whose nuggets have been buried on page 10 of
some little-read publication. Sometimes they are
men and women in TIME's home-office, who-at
one end of a wire-probe a reporter three hundred
or three thousand miles away until a few confused
facts become a well-ordered, living story.
The world is the good reporter's hunting ground.
No man can tell where a nose for news may pick
up the scent. Stories may break in the White House,
the Holland tunnel, the Balkans, the South Pole,
Number 10 Downing Street, or 1913 Central Ave-
nue, South Bend.
No man can anticipate TIME's stories. The News-
magazine is as unpredictable as the warring,
struggling, creating, cock-eyed human race, whose
historian it is. Only this is certain..
In today's world the true adventures of your
fellow humans, gathered and told by good report-
ers, make more absorbing reading than anything
in the world of make-believe.
This is one of a series of advertisements in
which the Editors of TIME hope to give College
Students a clearer picture of the world of news-
gathering, news-writing, and news-reading-and
the part TIME plays in helping you to grasp,
measure, and use the history of your lifetime as
you live the story of your life.
