Editors Welcome Tryouts
Hello Newcomers :
Welcome to the University!
We hope you will enjoy your college days. Each of you will, we
think, find some niche here, with friends and in studies and activities.
As editors of the Women's Page of The Dairy, we would like to
welcome each of you to join our staff as tryouts, in keeping the stu-
dents informed about these activities and in being a part of many of
Our staff members "cover" all phases of life in their stories-
reporting events sponsored by the League, Union, Women's Athletic
Association, dormitory, fraternity and sorority "happenings" and all
of the "big" dances and projects on campus.
No writing experience is necessary, our requirements being some
writing ability, interest and enthusiasm, and preferably, some typ-
ing skill, which comes in handy when there are deadlines to meet.
Upon joining "our staff as tryouts, you will receive training in
news and headline writing, and interviewing, and will learn the Daily
style rules. While working on desk, you will have a chance to prac-
tice these skills by helping to put out the page.
At the end of one semester you will become "soph" staffers and
will receive a regular beat to cover, as well as special events. At this
time you will also begin training in copyreading and editing and in
*age make-up, in preparation for night editor positions.
As juniors, you will have the opportunity to petition for the po-
sitioxi of Women's Night Editor, of whom there are four at the pre-
sent time. These women are responsible for putting out the paper
once a week, editing the stories that are handed in by staffers each
day and making-up the pages.
Night Editors are also assigned the more important beats and
help in the training of "sophs" and tryouts while on desk.
The Women's Editor, and her associates, heading a staff of approxi-
mately 20 women, are chosen from the night editors.
We are hoping to see many budding reporters at the first tryout
meeting, which will be held Tuesday, September 21. The other meet-
ings appear on the first page of this section, in an advertisement in
the general section of this paper and will be published in the first
issues of The Daily next fall.
Be sure and stop in at the Women's Desk any day from 3 to 5
p.m., and we will be glad to show you around and explain more of our
work to you.
Best of luck,
Rozalind Shlimovitz, Women's Editor
