PaperStarts
54th Year.
Four Staffs Publish
Campus Newspaper
In Modern Building.
The Michigan Daily, nine-time
winner of the prized Pacemaker
Award and receiver of three first-.
place honors by Sigma Delta Chi, ,
national journalistic fraternity, en-
ters publication this fall with the,
:rating of the nation's leading uni-
versity newspaper.
Nearing its fifty-fourth year of
publication, the paper originated as'
a four-page sheet in 1890, started by,
a few students in a local print shop.
Now The Daily has expanded to
include four staffs, to carry Asso-
ciated Press wire news and publishes
as a community service in a complete
modern plant with up-to-date equip-
ment all built from Daily proceeds.
As an extra-curricular activity to
the men and women students who
serve it, The Daily offers invaluable
experience in editorial writing, head-
line writing, shop techniques, sports
cverage, and society in addition to
the work of the business staff.
"Edit" staff workers start as try-,
outs, covering beats, writing editor-
ials, and assisting the night eidtor
with headlines and proofreading. At
the end of the sophomore year of
the former tryouts, 12 are selected
as junior night editors. Night edit-
ing, one of the most responsible jobs
open to University students, requires'
news judgment, knowledge of make-
u technique, and ability to handle
unforeseen situations which arise.
'Sports men and women cover: all
University, Arny, and Navy athletic
events. One member is assigned to
accompai}y varsity teams on out of
town trips. A Daily representatiye
can be found at any event, whether
Big Ten or intramural.
Under the women's editor, the
League and sorority activities as well
as dances and other social events are
thoroughly covered.'
:The Daily, however, is more than
An extra-curricular activity to the
men and women who serve it.' ts
high standing in the Associate Col-
legiate Press and Sigma Delta Chi
and its thoroughness of coverae
have given it a nation-wide reputa-
t tion. Daily alumni are chosen for
editing and writing positions on
newspapers throughout the country.
The rosters of the three main press
services and the foreign corresponai-
'ets corps as well as hundreds of
newspapers, small and large, are
marked by University men and
women who received their initial
start under The Daily masthead.
Since the war has taken its share
of University male students, fresh.
men women have a great opportunity
to attain junior and senior positions
on the staff. The summer "Dailj was
predominately female. The top posi-
-bons on the fall business, women's,
and editorial staff are completely fe-
male. The sports staff, too, has its
share of women writers.

ANOTHER CASUALTY:
Campus Humor Magazine
Dies; Lectures Will Profit

By EVELYN PHILLIPS
Chant the funeral dirge. Hang out
the black crepe. The Gargoyle, long
may it live, is dead.
No longer will its subtle quips and
not-so-Subtle quips liven the dead-
ened atmosphere of that oh-so-bor-
ing lecture. No longer will the glam-
our gals see themselves as others see
their in the Garg.Album of Beauty.
lo longer will gravel-voiced high-
p1essure salesmen sing the praises
of that famous humor magazine, ex-
changing campus cut-up numbers
for a paltry sum of silver.
there have been many war cas-
alties around campus. There is
less coffee, less sugar, less tea, less
hbt-fudge sundaes, less room, and
in fact, less everything is the order
e4 the day. But before we could
alwaye laugh, sometimes sneering-
ly, for it must be admitted that at
times The Gargoyle hit alnew high
in caihpus scorn. And now, we
don't even have The Gargoyle to
alrive uis to. fits of mad laughter.'
Themember the deluge of modern
short' stories with which we whiled
away the time in the library. There
was the heartbreaker entitled "IRam-
sey's Regression," whose passionate
wflfish heart was laid bare by the
lucid pen of Orson Patterson.
And, darling, do you remember
those laughable, lovable sketches

by the same name, "Darling, Do
You Remember?" Ana Wormsley,
the candid critic of music matter,
who gave us "As You Like It," and
we read it whether we liked it or
not, has gone into hiding until the
war is over and he can once more
trot out his precious music master-
pieces.
And the pictures!!! My dear, do
you remember how The Garg
traipsed right along to the upper
regions with Mary Borman's boys
and gave us front line pictures of
dapper Michigan men (with one
hand not in right pocket and one
pipe not between upper and lower
plate) slaving like true sons of the
soil to save the beet crop. And no
college humor magazine could com-
pare with The Gargoyle when it
came to acquiring those 12:30 a.m.
pictures.
The Gargoyle, typical represen-
tation of Michigan humor or un-
reasonable facsimile thereof (with
3 box tops and 20 cents) has died,
but its spirit lives on. Just listen
to any senior's joke, any profes-
sor's ha-ha line and you may knowi
t.at The Gargoyle has not lived
in vain. And when thie time comes
that wartime pressure and incon-
veniences are removed, let it be
known that: a most substantial
ghost of The Gargoyle will once
again 'return to haunt the Uni-
versity campus.
