Tryout Staff

T HE ROAD TO journalistic success, and to success in many another
field, starts at 420 Maynard St.
That's where a group of forward-looking students will gather at
4 p.m. today to learn how The Daily can offer them the most valuable
experience they'll ever get on this campus.
MANY A FUTURE newspaper editor, foreign correspondent and
writer will pass through the doors of the Student Publications Building
today, taking a hop, skip and jump toward success.
The present is proving the worth of Daily experience for a whole
army of former staffers. Stan Swinton, one-time Daily city editor,
now an AP correspondent in Cairo would tell you that. So would
Dick Maloy, ex-Daily worker now with the Baltimore Sun, Bob Gold-
man, Detroit Free Press correspondent, or Ralph Byers, newly appoint-
ed editor of the Ann Arbor News. And there are others.
This year The Daily needs tryouts for its editorial, sports,
and women's staffs. Photographers, too, are needed, along with
dra-ma critics, music, art and movie reviewers.
Most of the tryouts will undergo a short training course, learning
the fundamentals of proof-reading, headline writing, and reporting.
In a few weeks, the neophyte journalists wvill be ready for actual
experience covering campus and city news.
They'll be assigned beats and sent out to work and learn under
the guidance of experienced Daily reporters.

THE DAILY'S photographic set-up offers invaluable training for
studenits interested in photography. With its new high-speed photo-
engraver in operation, Daily photog'raphers can take pictures at mid-
night, rush them to the Student Publications darkroom, and see them
in the paper the next morning.
This gives photographers a chance to shoot evening sports events,
lecturers, and a wide variety of campus events. Interested photogra-
phers should call Wally Barth, photography editor, 2-3241, or come
to the tryout meeting at 4 p.m.
/Other positions on The Daily are open for writers of political
analyses and record reviews, and for special writers.
One of the top college newspapers in the country, The Daily
boasts the best-equipped college newspaper printing' plant in the
nation." In its elaborate composing room, compositors lay out 60,000
column inches of advertising annually, making the paper a $100,000-
a-year business.
FOR THIS thriving enterprise-for the operation of the financial
and circulation departments of the paper-The Daily needs a large
business staff. Tryouts for this important part of the paper should
call Dee Nelson at 2-3241.
Another meeting for students unable to try out for The Daily

Ten Escape from B-36 Crack-ut

Engine School

-- Crawford

Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the College of Engineering yesterday
expressed disappointment at Gov. G. Mennen Williams' failure to
include in the University's appropriations request $120,000 for im-
provement of the West Engineering Annex.
"Plans for remodeling space in the building, built in 1885, would
have been entirely for the benefit of undergraduate students, Craw-
ford said. "At present, both ventilation and lighting are a menace to
health and the wooden floor--worn through in several places-make
it a fire trap.",

$1,300,000 to Western Michigan
College, Kalamazoo, for extra
classrooms, saying he felt expan-
sion of the University of Michigan
was unwise.
Conferring with Legislative fi-
nance committees, Gov. Williams
declared he has been told by edu-
cators that the University's size
has made the school "too big". He
added that some students are now

THE STATE could set up a new

Go. Williams remarked.
"Or we couud build up some

answer. We've got to take the
stand now," he said.

"It also means that the Col-

maintain a high standard with
other engineering schools in the
Midwest which receive support
enough to keep up with engi-
neering and scientific progress,"
he added.

A premium of office space in
the West Engineering Building has

Roving Pickets Destroy

By The Associated Press
HARLAN, Ky.-A swarm of roving pickets swept through 10 Har-
lan County coal mining communities yesterday, destroying property
and warning idle miners to remain away from their jobs.
State Police and county officers reported the activities but said
they made no arrests. Spokesmen for one of the companies said 570
men in 106 automobiles swarmed onto the High Splint Coal Company
property early yesterday.

IN LONDON observers reported
that a number of East European
nations presumably were forging,
in concert with Russia, a multi-
nmillion dollar trade pact with
Communist China.
The countries are identified
--besides Russia-as Poland,
Czechoslovakia and Finland,
which, while anti-Commnunist,
is dependent upon the good will
of neighbor Russia.
Meanwhile, the new alliance set
the Orient to wondering what the
Soviets get out osf it.
THE FIRST reaction in British
Hong Kong was that the an-
nouncement carried a lot of face-
saving for Red China. But no one
is saying what Russia got.
