CITY EDITOR DOROTHY MYERS:
'Great Suffragette' Leaves Daily Post

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
is an unassigned story-and the
reporter assumes full responsibility.
By DEBRA DURCHSLAG
"The Great Suffragette" takes
her crusading banner and marches
determinedly out of the University
Dorothy Myers, first woman City
Editor of The Michigan Daily, the
youngest lobbyist registered in the
State, and Young Democrat na-
tional committeewoman of Michi-
gan; has justly earned her reputa-
tion of "first with the news or
know the reason why."
"If she had been born in time,
she would have.been picketing the
White House for womer.'s rights,"
comments a fellow Daily editor.
Daily headlines testify to her
sixth sense for news, and Daily
legend testifies to her delight in
a good healthy rumor.
Miss Myers admits that The
Daily attracted her interest be-
cause it was the "center of things
interesting on campus." As City
Editor, she proved herself a news-
paperwoman. "Dorothy was what
you might call a fire-engine-chas-
er," says a colleague. "She never
let a lead get by without seeing if
it had 'the makings of a good story.
In fact, with her, the art of snoop-
ing was a science."
Scientific or not, Miss Myers has
a sense of humor that matches her
news sense. It may be one more
evidence of her ability to be on
the inside of things, but one cam-
pus notable swears that "Dot
knows more jokes than anyone
else I kiow."
Daily staffers remember the
time Managing Editor Harry Lunn
*announced the traditional Mon-
day night meeting as "formal"--
and Dorothy showed up in a strap-
less gown. "He promised cocktails
and never delivered," she recalls
Quick Sandwiches, Little Sleep
Her routine has slowed down
somewhat now that she has re-
tired from office, but at the peak
of her career "The Great Suffra-
gette" practically livpd on quick
sandwiches and the minimum of
When she lived in Martha Cook,
a lunch was packed for her or she
might not have gotten anything to
eat. Next to dashing off to Lan-
sing to sell the 18-year old vote
-and pondering over one of her
famous critic sheets on the day's
paper, eating was secondary.'
A Typical Day
A typical Myers' day might run
like this: up at 8 a.m., over to The
Daily to get out the assignment
sheet, off to Lansing for some
lobbying, back to The Daily to
check on stories, and then maybe
a little studying for the next day.
It was during this time that she

among others-and much to her
surprise, Miss Myers found her-
self something of a celebrity
Lobbying, Serious Business
However, lobbying was a serious
business to her, and she has helped
to make the chances of the 18-
year old voting bill very favorable
in the next session of the State
Another important job was her
position of national committee-
woman for the Young Democrat
clubs. She characterizes herself as
a strong Democrat "because they
serve a larger part of the popu-
lace than Republicans," but
doesn't expect great things out of
any political, party or platform.
"It is difficult for people who par-
ticipate actively in politics to re-
main idealists," she says.
In the Myers' background is a
one-time aspiration to be a con-
cert pianist. In high school she
did a great deal of recital work,
playing for private clubs as well
as radio and television. Her work
of the last four years, however, has
eclipsed the piano, but she intends
to take it up again next year. -
This is not to say that Miss My-
ers intends to allow any relaxatiol,
in her schedule. In addition to her
piano work, she will be studying at'
the Institute of Political Studies of
the University of Paris. And of
course, she has promised to send
a few articles back to The Daily.
Claimed by Honoraries
In£ addition to maintaining an
enviable grade point average, the
senior from Chevy Chase, Md. has
made her mark on the honoraries
of Michigan. Her record includes
Wyvern, Mortarboard, A 1 p h a

(political science honorary) and Pi

She has recently been honored
with the Pi Sigma Alpha award
as the outstanding senior student
in political science.
Always an individualist, Miss
Myers never drinks more than
half a cup of coffee, often tosses a
scarf jauntily over her shoulder,
and hates wearing shoes. Not to
be outdone by the Michigamua
members of The Daily staff, Miss
Myers has even acquired a Triber
name: Monsoon Mouth Myers -

from Luckies. That's because Luckies taste better. They taste
better, first of all, because Lucky Strike means fine tobacco.
Then that tobacco is toasted to taste better. "It'sToasted"-
the famous Lucky Strike process-tones up Luckies' good-
tasting tobacco to make it taste even better. Commence to
