St. Valentine would flip in his
grave if he could see how Michi-
gan students have corrupted "his
The tender phrases of heart and
flowers were snubbed almost com-
pletely. High on the love list were
the smart cracks of comic valen-

IN FACT, Valentine's Day'
looked more like April Fool's Day.
One of the erstwhile freshmen
in the West Quad passed up the
condy stores for the grocery
store. As a result, one gal lov-

The best way to get an unsolic-
ited manuscript read is by ad-
dressing it directly to an associate
editor, Carmena Freeman, asso-
ciate editor of Dell Publications,
said yesterday in the first talk of
this semester's journalism lecture
According to Miss Freeman, al-
most all unsolicited manuscripts
are dropped into a "slush pile"
that is largely read by inexperi-
IF THE MANUSCRIPT is sent
directly to an editor, however, she
will eventually recognize the name
and think you are a big name
writer, she said.
Miss Freeman remarked that
two other ways by which a
magazine obtains its stories are
from big name writers and
through literary agents.I
Authors who are able to read
copy and proof often receive pro-
motions faster than the writer
who is untrained in the technical
end of the field.
