)ygert: 'Essentially Renaissance Type'

"Jin Dygert," a Daily staffer
recently quipped, "like the auto-
mobile in 1910, and lanolin in our
own decade, is a force to be reck-
oned with."
Dygert, retiring Daily City Edi-
tor, is best known for the frenzied
and chameleon-like life he leads.
For example, a few months ago
Dygert was directing a Michigras
movie, working at the Daily, cam-
paigning for SGC elections, some-
times attending classes, writing
short stories and working seven
hours a week at the Union.
Yet, even amid all these activi-
ties, Dygert could always find time
to discuss his favorite over-coffee
topic: women.
Four-Point Program
Although he will readily admit
that "the reason you should stay
away' from girls is not that they
take too much time, but that once
you get interested you don't think
properly," when questioned, at
length Dygert has not been ad-
verse to revealing his four-point
program for romantic involve-
1. "Pick out a likely prospect
and indicate strong interest for a
short period of time, no longer
than a week, and observe all clos-
Ing hours.
2. "Ignore her for a longer
period of time, perhaps three
weeks to a month. This is designed
to make her wonder what happen-
ed to you, so that by the time you
start step No. 3, she's anxiously
awaiting your call.
3. "Call her again and proceed
where you intended to in the first
4. "Pick out another prospect
and start all over again. Sooner
or later it will work."
SDyget, who is very philosophi-
cal, ha° had many problems with
his pr=gram, but as he explains,
"it's like qutiitting smoking. You
have to try it several times before
you get there."
SBX Manager
One of the things of which
Dygert is most proud is his work
on the Student Book Exchange.
"I petitioned for a position in
my sophomore year," Dygert said
recently. "I had read a little box
in The Daily that said people
made fabulous salaries working
for SBX. It was a new experience,
as the saying. goes.
"I met a lot of nice young wom-
en. When I became manager I
was able to put some of my favor-
ite schemes into practice. I had
them serid left-over books to a
school in India so I didn't have
'to start packing them away. In
the fall. I set a record for the best
sales and in the spring sold $9,000
worth of books.
"This was really an all-time
record, but I spent so much money
promoting it I put SBX in debt.
When they congratulated me they
had tongue in cheek."
Values Daily Work
In a moresserious vein, Dygert
values his Daily experience more
than any other campus activity.
"The Daily," he said, "is essenti-
ally educational and I probably
State Discussion
The current Michigan Week will
be the topic of discussion at 6:45
p.m. today on station WPAG-TV.
The program "Dateline Ann Ar-
bor" will present Rodney Hutch-
inson, mayor of Ypsilanti, w h o
will speak on the significance of.
honoring the state.
On the same program, Timothy
Dyer, state winner of Pythian
speaking contest, will relate his
past experiences.

learned more things and a greater
variety of things working on The
Daily than I could have learned
"The Daily gives you some of
the kinds of experience that you
would get outside of here and
makes school a little more of a
real experience. It's different from
your ordinary educational pro-
Evans Scholar
Dygert is a member of the
Evans Scholars, an organization
of ex-caddies. "When I was in
my senior year of high school,"
Dygert said, "I learned about the
scholarship. You have to be a
caddy for two years, and I'd put
in one year when I was 12. I im-
mediately became a caddy again
and won the scholarship-my first
great coup d'etat."
President of Evans Scholars
during his junior year, Dygert has
this year devoted most of his
energies at the house to making
the Michigras movie, "Campus
"My main task as director," Dy-
gert said, 'was handling a tem-
permental leading lady. At the
time she was engaged and kept
wanting to visit her fiancee's fam-
ily to announce the event. But I
kept + scheduling . shootings on
weekends and she eventually
broke up with the fellow. After,
that she was unbearable!"
Job Experiences
Another Dygert peculiarity is
"getting as much experience in
different kinds of jobs as I can."
As a freshman, Dygert worked
in the Collegiate Sorosis kitchen.
As a sophomore he was to be seen
as a bellhop in the Union. His
memories of this job are not too
happy, however, because "there
were too many drunks, people who
were too drunk to count their
money, ordering ice. And some
people had exasperating ideas -=of
how much baggage they needed."
He 'eventually switched to the
Union basement swimming pool,
"where I could get homework
As a junior, he worked for the
Associated Press, the Detroit Free
Press, was a salesman for an en-
gineering company. Last summer,
he left the Associated Press,
switched over to the United Press,
and slung hamburgers in a local
snack bar. He also began working
for the Time-Life-Sports Illus-
trated syndicate.
The past year, aside from Daily
duties as city editor, Dygert has
driven a cab, worked for Gargoyle,
and taken back his Union swim-
ming pool job, after the quarter.
Academically, Dygert has always

been infamous for his refusal to
attend classes. He started out
working toward a CPA degree,
thought he might stay in the
literary college, but discovered he
needed language and natural
science courses and finally settled
for a "regular bus. ad. degree."
Of his work in that school, he
says, "It's been unthinkable bliss."
Dygert is a member of Sphinx
and Michiguama. In the latter or-
ganization he is known as Chas'-
um Tribe, referring to his hearty
exploits in following around the
tapping committee all night. "I
learned through a telephone call
that they were going back for me
one last time. I managed to get
there before them."
Right now, Dygert is busily
working on the SGC academic
freedom committee, having been
elected to the organization in
March. He plans to enter law
school in the fall and his big aim
right now is to sell a short story.

What is the real Jim Dygert
like? An activities man to a great
extent, but still "intensely inter-
ested in philosophy and literature.
I've always been convinced that
the mind and money can be recon-
ciled. But I can't understand why,
if I'm so smart, I'm not rich."
Perhaps a more objective evalu-
ation of Dygert's character comes
from a Daily co-worker who de-
scribes him as "essentially the
Rennaisance man, with a lust for
fame, and a dash of the Missis-
sippi riverboat gambler type-but,
of course, with heart."
About the Daily offices Dygert
is known for his indefatigable en-
ergy and his ears. The ears, as they
appeared on his appointments pic-
ture last year, inspired a new
nomenclature, "Mighty Mouse Dy-
Refusing to discuss the matter
at length, Dygert will only say,
"Yes, I have them."

But Longcore indicated such in-
cidents were the exception rather
than the rule. Foreign and Ameri-
can students live together as no-

Juanita Hodge, '57Ed., is a mem-
ber of Lester Co-op for women.
Miss Hodge also expresses enthus-
iasim for co-op 'houses.
"I love 'em. First of all you know
a closer circle of friends."
Moreover, the idealism behind
the movement actually works.
"There is a higher price placed
on individuality," she said. "But
we have the name of being Marx-
ist. That's bad. We have the Bo-
hemian stereotype applied to us
all the time"
She said that rather, "there
aren't any positive proven Com-
munists left in the co-ops."

"Actually," she, philosophized,
"there is no such thing as a typi-
cal co-opper."

joined," he said, "was for the cheap
But there were other reasons
also. "You learn to rely on your-
self." He spoke of the co-op as "a
living organism providing under-
standing among people.

"If I don't like to do cooking, I
let somebody else do it and I do
something else. It's up to the in-
Grosmark went on to remark
that co-ops even have traditions
of sorts.
"We have folk singing once in
a while. Every so often somebody
gets a guitar out."
Talk of "tradiiton" such as this
often reoccurs in conversations
among the co-oppers. Themes of
the importance of the house and
the unity of the group, enter con-
tinually in discussions at coopera-

Special Michigan Week Films
Produced at 'U' TV Studios

Two special programs featuring
the talents of Michigan private
citizens are currently being shown
to television audiences around the
state in honor of Michigan Week.
The programs, filmed at the
University television studios, fea-
ture two old and popular arts:

the University music school, pre-

pared a program featuring selec-
tions from Mendelssohn's oratorio
"Elijah," the finale from Gilbert
and Sullivan's "H.M.S. Pinafore"
}and two spirituals.
In the second program, the ama-
teur potters, with the aid of Prof.
Robert Iglehart, chairman of the
University art department, explain
