Years of Publication for



Actual Newspaper Experience
Of All Types Offered Tryouts

An opportunity to see what makesE
a newspaper tick, to learn all types
of news and editorial writing, to gain,
valuable technical experience and to
be a part of one of the oldest student
activities on campus awaits all fresh-
man and transfer students who try
out for The Daily this fall.-
A tryput and organizational meet-
ing will be held at 4 p.m. Monday,
Nov. 6 in the Student Publications
Building on Maynard Street.

tinuous publication as one of the
nation's outstanding college dailies.
Positions are open on the editorial.
staff which includes regular news
and editorial writing, the sports staff
and women's staff.
Daily City Editor, Stan Wallace,
pointed out that no experience is
necessary. "We want lively people,
eager to learn, and interested in cam-
pus activity," he said.
New members of the staff are given
a training program and at the same
time begin to learn while working.
The training course includes lectures
and demonstration classes in the
fundamentals of newspapering, the
history of The Daily, page make-up,
Daily style procedure, and actual
All Student Run.
The Daily is completely run by
students on campus. The paper is
organized into the under-staff, the
junior night editors, and the senior
The senior staff, made up of Evelyn
Phillips, Managing Editor, Stan Wal-
lace, and Ray Dixon, Associate Edi-
tor, is responsible for direction, or-
ganization, training, and policy while
each of the junior night editors is re-
sponsible for putting out one paper
a week.
During the regular school year The
Daily publishes every morning except.
Monday and suspends publication
between terms and during examina-
tion periods.
Founded in 1890
Founded in 1890, The Daily was
managed as a private enterprise by
students until, by act of the Board of
Regents, it was placed under the jur-
isdiction of a Board in Control of
Student Publications.
This board is composed of six
faculty members, two alumni mem-
bers, and three student members
Rare Collections
To Be Found in
Spectal Library
Famous throughout the world for
its collection of rare Americana, the
William L. Clements Library is one
of the most interesting and unique
buildings on campus.
It is not an adjunct of the General
University Library, but is rather a
book repository to preserve rare and
valuable books, manuscripts, maps
and newspapers, and to make these
resources available to those on cam-
pus whoare interested.
The Clements Library contains
thousands of almost unprocurable
historical books and papers, such as
the volume in which Columbus an-
nounced the discovery of America in
1493, the manuscript of Tobias Lear's
account of the death of George
Washington, Dec. 31, 1799, and col-
lections of manuscripts of the Ameri-
can Revolution acquired from their
British owners.
Manuscripts Collected
The manuscripts of the papers of
the prime minister who negotiated
the treaty which ended theRevolu-
tion and the British headquarters

lution are in possession of the Li-

William L. Clements (B.S. 1882),
who presented the Library to the
University in 1922, had collected rare
Americana for many years as a hobby
and ultimately it became the princi-
pal interest of his life. . He had felt
for some time that there was a cer-
tain lack of cultural influence upon
both. faculty and students in the
University, and he believed that the
establishment of a library upon aes-
thetic and bibliographical principles
rather than mass production might
do something about it. He erected
and equipped at his own expense on
S, YUniversity the architectural gem
in which the Library is housed.
Italian Renaissance Design
The .Library, which is of Italian
Renaissance design, is one of the
most beautiful buildings on campus.
It is approached from S. University
over a broad terrace and entered
through a pillared loggia which opens
directly into the main reading and
exhibition room.
The spacious deep basement fur-
nishes a place for receiving incoming
material, a room for making photo-
static copies of valuable books and

elected annually from the campus.
The Daily became a member of the
Associated Press in 1916 and is the
only morning paper published in
Ann Arbor.
Since 1936, The Daily has had two
teletype machines in operation in the
city room and has facility for direct
wire service from any part of the

each morning and brings to its read-
ers the latest news first every day.
Besides Associated Press service, The
Daily brings to its readers a wide
variety of features including columns
by Samuel Grafton and Drew Pear-
son, a regular cartoon, and the comic
strip Barnaby.

Discusses Place
Of Theatre in
Russian Culture
The outstanding dramatic event of
the summer season, Shakespeare's
great tragedy "Othello," provided the
campus with an opportunity to see
and hear Paul Robeson, internation-
ally prominent actor and baritone, in
the title role.
Robeson, who is a graduate of
Rutgers and Columbia law school,
commenting on the probability of a
more widespread theatrical develop-
ment in the United States, in a back-
stage interview pointed out that "the
people must feel that the theatre is
an integral part of their lives, before
the necessary facilities can be pro-
Awareness Noted
"Increased awareness of the limit-
ed nature of the American legitimate
theatre has been evidenced," he said,
"and attempts to decentralize it are
being made. While professional plays
can reach those outside the large
metropolitan areas, road companies
emanating from Broadway are only
a partial answer," he maintained.
"The commercial nature of Ameri-
can theatre is, of course, a limiting
factor," Robeson declared. Such ex-
periments as community theatre
projects, particularly the now de-
funct W.P.A. Federal Theatre pro-
gram, indicate a recognition of the
necessity of providing the people with
facilities for dramatic productions.
Russian Comparison
Comparing the development of the
American theatre with that of Rus-
sia he said, "The theatre has as im-
portant a place in the lives of the
Russians as, (he spoke from his ex-
perience as a Rutgers all-star end),
football in America." He attributed
this interest to the encouragement
given to the expansion of the theatre
by the Soviet Union.
In answer to a statement that only
recently had the Russian theatre
revived the classical drama, Robeson
explained that as early as the twen-
ties the works of Shakespeare, Chek-
hov and other major dramatists had
been presented. That the theatre in
the U.S.S.R. is not hindered by the
present regime is proven, he said, by
the fact that the Moscow Art Thea-
tre is still directed by Stanislavsky,
its pre-revolutionary director.
"Of course the anti-Soviet press,
and 95 per cent of the U.S. press is
anti-Soviet," he asserted, "continues
to distort the facts about Russia."
He stressedthe importance of ade-
quate and accurate information
about Russia, which, he believes, will

make for better understanding be-
tween the allies. "Russia is going to
be big in the post-war world and we
are going to have to learn to cooper-
ate with her if the peace is to be a
successful one," he declared.
"Mr. Roosevelt realizes this," Robe-
son added. He followed that state-
ment with an assurancedthat he "was
optimistic about the outcome of the
New FM Station
Will Be Built Here
The University recently received
approval for the establishment of an
FM broadcasting license that will
permit the erection of a 50,000 watt

This station will serve as the basis
for the Michigan educational net-
work and ultimately will cover the

Daily Business Staff Presents
Wide Opportunity for Experience
An opportunity to gain a complete working knowledge of business
procedure from actual page make-up to accounting is offered all students
who try out for The Daily Business staff.
Students on the business staff gain practical experience in selling
advertisements, promotional campaigns, advertising layout and design,
bookkeeping, in executive tasks, and copy writing.
In addition to the advertising and business work, the business staff
includes management of circulation'

THE HOME OF YOUR STUDENT NEWSPAPER--The Student Publications Building located on Maynard
St. houses the editorial and business staff of The Daily. Constructed at a cost of $250,000, the Building
was first used in 1932. Considered one of the finest c ollege newspaper plants in the nation, the Publica-
tions Building has been the model for similar developments on other campuses. All work for the 'Ensian,
campus yearbook, is also done here and in peacetime, the Gargoyle, humor magazine, was done here.

and distribution.
For those especially interested in
women's fashions, there is an oppor-
tunity to acquire practical experience1
in advertising design by using the
three special fashion mat services
that The Daily gets.
Miss Lee Amer, Business Manager,
stressed the fact that experience is1
not necessary to try out for the bus-
iness staff. "We instruct our new1
people in the fundamentals and they
learn by actual beginning to work1
after they come out," she added.
Complete equipment is provided at;
the Publications Building for the
use of the business staff members.
Besides the regular advertising mat
services, there are lay-out tables and
drawing boards, and reference files.
The practical experience which
many alumni business staff members
received while working on The Daily3
proved a stepping stone to important
posts in many national advertising
agencies and in many of these agen-
cies may be found both men and
women who acquired their initial
experience on The Daily.
For all students interested in try-
ing out for the business staff of The
Daily there will be a meeting at
4 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 7, in the Stu-
dent Publications Building.
Beta, Chi Psi Were
First Fraternities
In 1845 Beta Theta Phi and Chi
Psi became the first fraternities to
install chapters on the campus. A
log chapter house in the woods east
of the campus was built by Chi Psi
and it is believed to be the first chap-
ter house at any college.
Since Tappan's retirement in 1863
five men have headed the University.

U' fresh Air
Camp Drive
Held Annually
The little boy with the wistful face
has become a familiar sight on the
tags which, for the past twenty-three
years, have been sold in the annual
University Fresh Air Camp Drive.
The proceeds of the Tag Day Drive
are contributions for the mainten-
ance of the camp which will house
approximately 240 underprivileged
boys. This year's quota of $1,500 was
exceeded by $394.95 through the
combined efforts of the students and
Located Near Pinckney
The camp is located on Patterson
Lake near Pinckney. Boys between
the ages of eight and thirteen will
be selected by twenty-five social case
working agencies, on the basis of need
for assistance.
Besides being given a real vacation
with all the trimmings of swimming,
boating, fishing, camp-craft, over-
night hikes and some actual work,
the boys are studied by trained .psy-
chiatrists and sociologists in order to
help solve their individual problems.
Any University student who be-
comes a counsellor at the camp this
summer will be provided with room
and board for the full two month
period, and he will be able to earn
as many as six hours credit for spe-
cial courses, including the mental
hygiene of the adolescence, and the
study of group behavior.
Counsellors Have Responsibilities
The counsellor will, as in the past,
be in charge of six to eight boys in
a cabin group, and will be responsible
for the program as well as for the
observational reports on the campers
in his charge.

Let's see what some are doing and
where they have been.

officially commended by their com-
manding admiral.
"Tip" Lackard, a member of the
Physical Training Dept. at the
Santa Ana, Calif. Army air field,
between leading groups of air ca-
dets through calisthenics writes,
"I had a very pleasant surprise
last Saturday in that I got to see
my old friend Tommy Harmon.
He and I played football together
in 1940 so we had quite a reunion."
Speaking of Harmon, he was re-
cently presented with the Silver Star
in recognition of his heroism in at-
tacking single-handedly six Zeroes
and shooting down two, before being
brought down himself, while cover-
ing a bembing mission in China. It
was after parachuting to safety on
this flight that Harmon made the
second of his escapes.

scholastic society, taps its members
on the basis of service to the Univer-
sity and scholarship.
Specifically for freshman is Phi
Eta Sigma, which honors those who
obtain a scholastic average of half
"A" and half "B," during the first
year of residence.

Director Emeritus J. Raleigh Nelson,
will be unveiled at the reception.
Established primarily to give guid-
ance to the University's more than
400 students from overseas and

opportunity to American students
and faculty to meet foreign students
in social and recreational activities.
Enlarged Program Planned
An enlarged program of activities
for the semester, designed to appeal
to both foreign and American stu-
dents, has been scheduled. "We hope
American students realize," said Dr.
I Caie, "that if they have an interest
in foreign students or international
affairs, they are urged to participate
in the Center's activities; for in this
way the Center can provide a more
rapid adjustment of the foreign stu-
dent to the American scene."
Scheduled weekly at the center are
the record concerts at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesdays, teas from 4 p.m. to 5:30
p.m. Thursday, and a program con-
sisting of lectures, movies, music, or
student activities at 7:30 p.m., a
community sing at 8:30 p.m. and the
Snack Hour at 9 p.m. Sunday.
Students Head Programs
Student committees, formed of
foreign and American students, will
provide student hosts and hostesses
at the teas and Sunday programs
and will make plans for bridge tour-
naments, outings, a sports program,
