three staffs: the editorial, sports and
women's staff. Ambitious second-
semester freshmen and sophomores
may start their Dail'y careers as
"edit"staff tryouts. Their work as
tryouts consists in covering beats,
writing editorials and spending one
night a week on night desk writing
headlines and reading proof.
After completion of the sophomore
year, a tryout is eligible for one of the
12 positions as a junior night editor.
From the junior group six senior
editors are selected.
Many students have learned to
shoulder respon iblity better and
make difficult decisions indepen-
cently through their experience as
junior night editors. News judgment,
knowledge of make-up technique and
ability to cope with unforseen devel-
opments are all required of the night

While operating under the same
system of advancement, the sports
staff and women's staff are com-
pletely separate units. Coverage of
university sports events is handled
by the sports staff under the direc-
tion of the sports editor, Hal Wilson,
'42, and his assistant, Art Hill, '42.
The women's staff is headed by Janet
Hiatt, '42, women's editor, and her
assistant Grace Miller, '42.

Until 1912 the Union presented
the Operas. Then Mimes of the Uni-
versity of Michigan was organized
and thereafter the productions were
under its auspices. Earl Moore, now
director of the School of Music, and
three of his U-M cronies, Matt Blish,
Homer Heath and Phil Fletcher were
the charter members.
Today the potent force in the at-
tempt to revive the operas is Mimes,
now composed of about 50 ;men who


have been active in the two past re-I
The first five productions, "Michi-#
genda," "Culture," "Koanzaland,"
"Crimson Chest," and "Awakened
Ramesbs" played only to Ann Arbor
audiences. The 1912 and '13 shows
were invited to play before the Chi-
cago alumni.
That was the start of the annual
opera trips which reached their cli-
max in 1923's production of "Cotton
Stockings." This show had in its itin-
erary Toledo, New York, Philadel-
phia, Washington, Pittsburgh, Cin-
cinnati, Indianapolis; Chicago, Sagi-
naw, Grand Rapids, Flint, Bay City
and Detroit. The cast lived the en-

tire two-week Christmas vacation in
a special railway train which carried
all props and costumes.
"Cotton Stockings" grossed almost
$100,000, played before 40,000 per-
sons and set the record of income for
an amateur production at the Met-
ropolitan Opera House in New York
of nearly $6,000 for one performance.
'Many of the Michigan songs
which the students sing today are
products of past operas. "College
Days" is from "Koanzaland," "When
Night Falls Dear" was written for
"Mithigenda," "The Friars Song"
for "Contrarie Mary" and "Tres
Rouge" of 1916 introduced "Men of
the Maize and Blue."
