Michigan Daily Begins Its 53rd Year;

Dinner OfJournalisticAwards

A Pacemaker for eight years' run-
ning and winner of numerous honors
awarded by Sigma Delta Chi, nation-
al professional journalistic society,
The Michigan Daily this fall begins
its 53rd year of continuous oubli-
The Daily was published for the
first tine in 1890 when a handful of
students persuaded a local print shop
to put out a four-page sheet. Today
The Daily occupies the entire second
floor of the thoroughly modern Stu-
dent Publications Building and has
a working staff of nearly 100 mem-
Since its start in the '90's, The
Daily has grown into a community
service, carrying all the Associated
Press wire news on two teletype ma-
chines and publishing in an up-to-
date plant built completely out of
Daily proceeds.
Complete Coverage
Complete coverage and quality in
reporting are the guiding principles
of the paper.

Swander, managing editor; Will
Sapp, city editor; and Morton Mintz
editorial director. They are assisted
by senior associate editors Charles
Thatcher and George Sallade.
Daily work is divided among three
seperate staffs-editorial, sports and
women's. Edit staff workers begin as
tryouts and learn newspaper essen..
tials from the bottom up. They cover
beats, write editorials, read proof
and assist the night editor by writ-
ing headlines on desk. At the end of
the sophomore year, 12 tryouts are
selected as junior night editors. From
these, five are appointed by the
Board in Control of Student Publi-
cations to become senior editors-in-
Night Editor's Responsibility
Night editors have one of the most
responsible positions open to a Uni-
versity student. The job "behind the
slot" requires a keen news judgment,
'a complete knowledge of make-up
technique and an ability to make
snap decisions when unforeseen cir-
cumstances may arise. A night editor
must also be able to coordinate his
night-desk workers and keep his
copy flowing regularly to the com-
posing room where it is set up by
professional linotype operators.
Perhaps the biggest responsibility
comes in the last 15 minutes before
the 2:15 a. m. press deadline. A news-
paper i's always fighting against time,
and it is dur irg the last few minutes
that the pressure is greatest. Then b,
night editor must utilize all the back-
ground training he has received over
a period of two years to "put the pa-
per to bed."
Whatever decision he makes under
pressure must be quick and it must
I be right.
Junior Night Editors
Junior night editors for the coming
fall semester include Hale Champion,
Robert Preiskel, Leon Gordenker,
Harry Levine, Irving Jaffe, John Er-
leWine, Bud Brimmer, Clayton Dick-
ey, Charlotte Conover, and Mark Lip-
per,. Alternates are Mary Ronay,
Marion Ford and Beryl Shoenfield.
Sports and women's page staff
members work under the same sys-
tem of competition as the edit staff.
A hard-working sports staff under;
the direction of sports editor Bud
Hendel, '4, covers all the Univers-
ity athletic contests each in its sea-
son. A reporter is usually assigned to
travel with the football team on its
out-of-town games. Golf, track,
swimming, baseball and wrestling get
complete coverage and intramural
events will always find a Daily re-
porter in the grandstand.
Profit from Daily Experience
Former Daily sports staff members
today are working for many metro-
politan newspapers and have profit-
ed from the valuable writing exper-
ience they received in four years of
Women's editor for the fall is Bar-
bara deFries, '43. Under her supe-
vision, a staff of workers has its own
separate page to put out each day
and its own requirements to meet.
Women's page copy has for its sub-
ject matter the fashions and society
of Ann Arbor and the campus. All
work in this channel of newspaper
writing requires a special technique
and here too the reporter must be
thorough and dependable to get her
job done.
Training Ground
The Daily dloes not end after four
years of school for the reporter. Be-
cause of the high standards it has
set for itself and the excellent rcord
it has maintained for the last decade,
The Daily is respected as a valuable
"training ground" for future report-

ers by newspaper all over the coun-
Daily alumni today are editing and
writing for papers anywhere from
Detroit to San Francisco. The three
major press services have on their
rosters the naies of many Daily men
who first got their start under this
masthead. Foreign correspondents
now covering the war on every bat-'
tle-front in the world include in their
distinguished ranks Daily men who
never heard of printer's ink until
they tried out for the University of
Michigan's campus newspaper.
Student Staff Operates
Dily BusinessA Adirs

One of Ann Arbor's biggest bus-
iness concerns is operated by less'
than 75 University students.
With Edward Perlberg, as business
manager, and Fred Ginsberg, as as-
sociatesbusiness manager, The Daily
business staff each year takes in
more than fifty thousand dollars in
advertising and circulation sales.
The quarter-of-a-million dollar con-
cern is run entirely by students.
Work is divided into three phases,
all providing an excellent chance to
learn first-hand the techniques of
sound business at work. The core of
the business staff begins with the six
departmental managers who handle
local advertising, service and publi-
cations, national advertising, con-
tracts, circulation and classified ad-
vertising, and accounts. No previous
experience is needed.
The six departmental managers
are also in charge of the men's soph-
omore service staff. The service staff
is open to any male University stu-
dent who is eligible to participate in
extra-curricular activities and in val-
uable business training for the fu-
Women's advertising includes ser-
vicing and fashion work. The staff is
composed of five women-a senior
women's advertising head and four
junior assistants-and a sophomore
tryout class which is as large as any
other group in publications work.
The two biggest campus style shows
are handled by this staff in coopera-
tion with local merchants.

On Religions
Is Availablet
Because the University feels that
personal, academic and social prob-
lems in the field of religion need
prompt review by experienced per-
sons, the office of the Counselor in
Religious Education exists for all stu-
dents regardless of affiliation.
The office is under the direction of1
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, who is
available from 11 to 12 p. mn. and
from 3 to 5 p. m. each day at Room 9
University Hall.
Dr. Blakeman, who took over the
position of Counselor in Religion
when it was inaugurated ten years
ago, has outlined his work in this
manner. "It is highly desirable to
have someone available for new stu-
dents to consult with on personal
problems, science-religion conflicts,
and cases of emotional tension. While
there areemany questions that we
can't answer we try to break the big
problems down into little ones so that
the student can solve them one by
The program is designed, to a large
degree, to make the University, de-
spite its size, as warm and personal
as a small college.
Dr. Blakeman also serves as a guide
for those freshman and sophomores
interested in the degree program in
Religion and Ethics.
