Student Daily



Winner of Pacemaker


Printed First in 1890; Is Known
As Nation's Leading College Paper


Facilities Include AP
Service, Modern Shop
The Daily, student newspaper
which has been publishing for 54
years, has won the All-American
Pacemaker Award ten times and has
been awarded first-place honors by
Sigma Delta Chi three times.
Often called the nation's leading
university journal, The Daily first
appeared as a four-page sheet in
1890. It was started by a group of
students in a local print shop. Since
then The Daily has grown to be a
community service carrying Associat-
ed Press wire news. It is printed in a
modern shop built out of Daily pro-
ceeds with all the equipment needed
for an efficient newspaper.
Complete Student Paper
The .Daily is a completely student
paper, rwith all the work divided
among four mainhstaffs, editorial,
women's, sports and business. Eligi-
ble students who try out for these
staffs begin by doing the easier tasks,
and after receiving instruction from
older staff members, are gradually
given more and more responsible jobs.
For example, those trying out for
the editorial staff are placed first on
the freshman editorial staff. Fresh-
men are given a beat to cover, work
on night desk once a week writing
headlines and reading proof and at-
tend weekly classes on the techhique
of news and editorial writing and of
page make-up.
When freshman staff members
have attained sufficient proficiency
in these tasks they are advanced to
the sophomore staff, where their beat
is larger. Sophomores write editor-
ials and learn more of the details of
page make-up.
Junior Night Editors
The junior staff is composed of 12
night editors, appointed by the Seii-
ior Staff with the approval of the
Board in Control of Student Publi-
cations. The night editors cover
beats, write a majority of the editor-
ials which are printed and once a

week work on night desk, either as
night editor or as assistant night
editor. The complete responsibility
for all stories which appear in the
news sections of the paper and the
make-up of the pages rests with the
night editor.
The Senior Staff, appointed by the
Board in Control, consists of a man-
aging editor, editorial director, city
editor and one or two associate edi-
tors. Decisions of policy affecting the
entire paper are made by members
of this staff.
The sports and women's staffs are
under the same system of promotions
and appointments. Members of the
sports staff cover all the University's
athletic events and one person is
usually assigned to accompany the
football, basketball and other teams
on their trips.
DIreetory Is U's
Bes Seller'
The University's "Best seller" is
the Student Directory, published
each summer and fall term by mem-
bers of the 'Ensian staff.
Containing the name, class, home
address, Ann Arbor address and tele-
phone number of every student en-
rolled in the University, as well as
the names and units of all service-
men stationed on campus, the book
is a complete sell-out each year.
Faculty members' names, depart-
ments, home and office addresses
and telephone numbers are also in-
cluded, as well as a section listing
campus organizations and their per-
sonnel, dormitory residents and sor-
ority and fraternity members.
Sailing Cnlb Sails Ora
The Michigan Sailing Club is one
organization on campus which will
continue its activities during the war
so long as there are people interested
in it.

There are numerous facilities
available to carry out this purpose of
social education. Among them is
the Michigan Journalist, a laboratory
paper published bi-weekly during the
second semester.
The Journalist does not compete
with other newspapers for spot news,
but is interested in interpreting news
and commenting on it. According to

One of Ann Arbor's biggest bus-
iness concerns is operated by less
than 30 University students.
With Elizabeth Carpenter as bus-

as associate business manager, the

Bern is run entirely by students.
Work is divided into three phases,
all providing an excellent chance to
learn first-handthe techniques of

cf the business staff begins with the
six departmental managers who han-
dle local advertising, service and
publications, national advertising,
;ontracts, circulation and classified
advertising, and accounts. No pre-
!ious experience is needed.
The six departmental managers

students how to write interviews, dis-

World War II has given the Mich-
iganensian, student-published year
book of campus activities, a new
lease on life.
The 'Ensian now 'comes out' three
times a year in separate winter,
spring, and summer term editions.
Each issue is a complete unit in it-
self, covering the semester's campus
and sports activities with action
shots, write-ups and art work. Pic-
tures of each semester's graduating
seniors are also included.
A pre-war variety padded leather
cover is sold separately, and students
staple their own sections into a com-
plete book..
Adopted to fit in with the acceler-
ated program which produces a

graduating class three times a year,
the new organization makes it pos-
sible for students to purchase sec-
tions covering only those parts of
the school year in which they are
particularly interested. Dividing the
book into smaller units also makes
publication easier for printers and
Editor-in-chief Betty Peat, '44,
points out that the 'Ensian is one of
the few anuals in the country which
is published entirely as a s tudent
project. While most c.olleges and
universities rely upon engraving con-
cerns for page planning, typography
suggestions and art work, all work
on the 'Ensian except that involved
in the actual printing process is done
by staff members.

The spring term edition will be is-
sued approximately June 10, Miss
Peet said, and the summer book will
be ready for distribution around Oc-
tober 1.
Entering freshmen are welcome to
try out for staff positions. No pre-
vious experience is necessary.
