The Michigan Daily is your cam-
pus newspaper.
Any eligible second-semester
freshmen or upperclassmen may
work on The Daily. The proced-
ure is simple: answer the call for
tryouts and pick one of the four
staffs: editorial, women's, sports,
or business. Previous experience,
although' it may be a help, is not
necessary. All tryouts go through
a training program.
Editorial Staff
The largest Daily staff is the
editorial staff, which is responsible
for campus and local news, editing
Associated Press news, and the ed-
itorial page. The editorial staff has
four divisions, senior staff, junior
night editors, sophomore staff, and
freshmen tryouts. Paul Harsha,
'47, is managing editor of The
Daily. Other senior editors are
All eligibile second semester
freshmen and upperclassmen
interested in trying out for The
Daily editorial, sports or women's
staff should attend a tryout
meeting at 4 p.m. today in the
Student Publications Building.
Milton Freudenheim, '47, editorial
director; Clayton Dickey, '47, city
editor; and Mary Brush, '47, Ann
Kutz, '47, and Clyde Recht, '48,
associate editors.
Tryouts on the editorial staff,
regardless of class, spend one se-
mester on freshmen staff train-
ing for future work in covering
beats, writing editorials, and as-
sisting the night editors with
headlines and proof reading on the
night desk. At the end of one se-
mester, the tryout is advanced to
sophomore staff where he begins
covering beats, and receives fur-
ther instruction in night editing
and reporting.
Night Editors .
From the sophomore staff mem-
bers, 13 junior night editors are
chosen. Night editors, in addition
to covering the more important
beats, put out the paper once a
week, one of the most responsible
positions on The Daily. Night ed-
itors must possess good news
judgment, a knowledge of make-up
techniques, and the ability to cope
with any unforeseen event that
may arise in the course of putting
out a paper.
The sports and women's staff
work under much the same pro-
motion policy and organization as
the editorial staff. The sports staff
covers all local sports events and
edits sports news from the Associ-
ated Press wires. This semester's
sports staff will be headed by Jack
Martin, sports editor and Archie
Parsons, associate sports editor.
Women's Staff
The Daily Women's Staff keeps
the campus posted on social activi-
ties, fashions, women's athletics,
and all other women's activities on
campus. Joan Wilk is women's ed-
itor, and Lynn Ford is associate
women's editor.
The Daily is in its 57th year
of publication. It has earned a
reputation as America's foremost
college paper, and has won many
high journalism awards in tribute
of its merits. The Daily brings its
readers a complete coverage of
campus news, city news, and na-
tional and international news from
the Associated Press wires. The
editorial page this semester will
run the syndicated columns of
Harold L. Ickes, the Alsop brothers,
Samuel Grafton, and Edgar An-
sel Mowrer. Bill Maudlin's car-
toons and the cartoon Barnaby
are also to be found on the edi-
torial page. The editorial page
furnishes space for Daily staff
members to express their opinions
and the entire student body is
free to have letters published in
the Letters to the Editor column.
In addition, The Daily Official

Bulletin, invaluable to all students,
is found on the editorial page.
A Starting Point -
Members of The Daily staff find
more than just another extra-
curricular activity in their work.
The Daily is reputedly a starting
point for many successful journal-
ists who gained a first hand know-
ledge of the functionings of a
newspaper by working on it dur-
ing their college years. Many not-
ed journalists of today are Daily
"alumni" who got their first taste
of printers ink chasing stories on
the University campus.
AVC To Meet Today
The American Veterans' Com-
mittee will meet at 7:30 p.m. today
in the Union.
A program and plans for the
coming semester will be discussed.
All veterans are invited to attend.

government which started last
spring with a stormy battle be-
tween proponents of the Council-
Forum and the Cabinet-Congress
constitutions. After the Cabinet-
Congress form had been chosen by
a record student vote, the new
government, a successor to the
pre-war Student Senate, found it-
self pre-occupied with an inves-
tigation of its own election and or-
ganizational activities.
Legislature Activities
With Ray Davis as its president,
the Legislature began its fall pro-
gram with a redistribution of up-
perelass football tickets held by
underclassmen, promising future
efforts for better student seating.
According to Coplin, the present
president, the problem will be con-
sidered this semester after Fritz
Crisler makes a promised appear-
ance before the Legislature.
It was the Legislature's Varsity
Committee, under the leadership
of Lynne Ford, which sponsored
the special student train to the
Ohio State Game and the Home-
coming Dance, which netted $1,300
for use in such activities as student
elections. The Legislature con-
ducted elections this fall for Un-
ion vice-presidents, the J-Hop
committee, members of the Board
in Control of Student Publications
and its own new members.
Investigation Program
Gaining momentum with the ad-
dition of 27 new legislators, the
group embarked on an ambitious
program of projects and investiga-
tions, including a Student Chest
for the coordination of charity
drives, a housing survey, a veter-
ans memorial fund and investiga-
tions of the League, Union, Health
Service and The Daily. These ac-
tivities, under the supervision of
the Legislature's standing commit-
tees, will continue to occupy the
Legislature's agenda for the first
part of the spring semester.
