-The Michigan Daily.
ANY STUDENT scholastically eligible and interested in either
the writing or advertising end of newspaper work may attend one of
the introductory meetings. No previous experience is necessary.
Editorial tryout meetings will be held at 7:15 p.m. today and
4:15 p.m. tomorrow. The business staff will hold its last tryout
meeting 4:15 p.m. today. All groups will meet in the Student
Publications Bldg., 420 Maynard St.
Winner of many collegiate newspaper awards, The Daily is go-
ing into its 65th year of publication independent of the University.
Coming out six mornings a week, The Daily has a circulation of 7,000
with the latest deadline in the state.

THE $500,000 PLANT which houses The Daily is the finest col-
legiate newspaper plant in the nation surpassing even those of some
small town periodicals. It is published in its own shop complete with
four Linotypes, a $70,000 rotary press and a photo-engraving machine.
Among some of The Daily's more noted alumni are Gov.
Thomas Dewey of New York, Frank Gilbreth, author of "Cheaper
by the Dozen," Chesser Campbell, vice-president of the Chicago
Tribune, Brewster Campbell, executive city editor of the Detroit
Free Press, and Stan Swinton, foreign correspondent for the
Situated behind Betsy Barbour Dormitory, the building was com-
pleted and occupied in 1932. Profits accumulated during the boom
of the 1920's completely paid for it.
Nineteen young men aggravated over campus conditions found-}
ed The Daily in 1890. Great changes have occurred since then and
through the years The Daily has grown from the original 8 by 12 inch
sheet with advertising on the front page to the professional looking
eight column paper it is today.
Tryouts on editorial, sports and women's staffs will learn the
fundamentals of headwriting and proof reading and later news, fea-
ture and editorial writing. Following his initial semester, the tryout
is automatically advanced to the "soph staff" with the added respon-
sibility of covering a beat connected with the University or Ann
Arbor. Here he will have the opportunity to meet other campus
personalities, members of the faculty and administration and oc-
casionally a famous national figure.
The Daily staffer will then be eligible for one of the salaried jun-
ior positions which entails putting out the paper one night a week
at the same time continuing on with one of the choice beats. In his
senior year he may rise to one of the top senior editorial positions.
Beginners on the business staff will be taught the rudiments of
advertising which includes layout, servicing, contracts and promo-
tions. This newly acquired knowledge will be used in working direct-
ly with local merchants. New business staffers will also become fa-
miliar with circulation, finance and business;management. As a
soph staffer he will be able to specialize in the field of his choice.
In following semesters the staffer will have the chance to fill
one of the paid junior managerial positions. As a senior he may
become one of the high level senior managers.
Positions are also open for staff photographers. The Daily furn-
ishes all photography equipment. Later photographers may work
themselves up to paying positions.
Come early. Avoid the rush.

not to accept the proposal with-

support of the change.
Wednesday evening, the MSC
Student Congress, which had pre-

the change to the legislature, ap-
proved a plan to obtain student
signatures on a petition to be sent
to legislators considering the bill.
The petitions are now in the
process of being signed.
THURSDAY afternoon, Dave

Congress is a branch); Pat Yaroch,
State News editor; and Marilyn

THE REVISED constitution with
the tax provision would be pre-

The constitutional authoriza-

the SL finance committee and
approved by the Legislature ac-

The SL president claimed "To a
