The Michiganensian, the official
yearbook of the University, is pub-
lished by the senior class. The edi-
torial staff is comprised of a manag-

editor, photographers and several
junior editors. Cooperating with
these are the sophomore and fresh-
man tryouts.
The positions are chosen in the fol-
lowing manner: Any eligible sopho-
more or freshman may try out. Jun-
ior editors are appointed by the in-
coming editor on their ability and in-
terest displayed during the year. The
managing editor is chosen by a Board
in Control of Student Publications
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

The sports staff of the Daily is en-
tirely separate from the editorial de-
partment. Under the direction of
sports editor Don Wirtchafter, the
division works by itself in gathering
news to fill its one or occasionally
two pages.
Tryout sports writers come out at
the same time as other Daily neo-
phytes. No one is cut off except un-
der unusual circumstances until the
end of the sophomore year, when
sports night editors are chosen. They
receive salaries and from their num-
ber the new sports editor is selected
by the managing editor.
