'BIGGER THAN EVER'
Technic Celebrates Its 75th
WCBN Resumes Program Service
By TED FRIEDMAN
Sheldon Levin, Editor-in-Chief
of the Michigan Technic, ,indi-
cates that this, the magazine's
75th year, may be its most suc-
essful in history.
The engineering magazine is
jumping from 64 pages, as at the
beginning of last year, to 100 pages
for the coming October issue.
"This issue is really going to
coke up the coals," the editor
said. "It's going to be bigger than
ever. We've got more advertising
The Technic, which is the only
"slick" (glossy paper) student
publication at the University,
completely sold out on four of its
eight issues last year.
The magazine features techni-
cal articles, engineering - school
news, jokes and occasional science
fiction. Last year it even included
The poem, "Tears and Beer and
A Few Cheers," was a college
life ballad as first told by "a
liberal arts man," then by a busi-
ness. administration major and
finally by an engineer. It con-
cludes with, "'Stop; say no more,
we beg of you; Your life is the
roughest, they sighed."

Monday night at 7:00 p.m. in the

Its 75 years makes the T Ichnic
the oldest student engineering
magazine in existence. The office
walls are cluttered with awards.
Two hundred dollars was won
by Lee Allgood, '56E, for a weld-
ing article written last year. An-
other $200 was awarded to the
magazine for publishing the arti-
Recently, the Technic launched
the innovation of special issues.
The first featured automobile
production and the second covered
the International Geophysical
Upcoming is an issue devoted to
transportation, and, of course, a
75th anniversary issue.
"It's interesting to go back to
look at the 'In the News' section
of old Technics," Levin comment-
ed, "and now see things that they
were talking about as coming in
the far future."
Although students edit and write
most of the magazine's features,
faculty members also contribute
to the publication. Unlike such
student publications as Genera-
tion, Gargoyle or The Daily, the
Technic is directly associated with
the University. As part of the
College of Engineering, it has four
However, the student staff
writes with a relatively unrestrict-
ed hand. Among engineering stu-
dents, the "Censored by McHigan"
feature last year was fairly notor-
A new publication, "The Arch,"
was launched last year by the
staff of the Technic. The Arch
serves as the Engineering students'
newsletter. Entirely supported by
advertising, the paper, ranging
from four to eight pages, is distrib-
uted free to the student body.
Rough life or not, engineering
students have found time to build
world-wide circulation for the
Technic. Not only is it sent to

Merchants Smile, Registers

Campustown merchants are
calmly handling the University's
record enrollment without an ex-
cess drop of brow sweat.
Storeowners in the area gener-
ally report little, if any, noticable
increase in the annual fall buying
Bookstores undoubtedly draw
the largest crowds. The manager
of one such shop reported, "We're
so used to jam-packed stores at
this time of year, I guess a differ-
erence of one or two thousand is
Although most merchants state
that the rush has passed its peak,
business is still booming. Sporting
goods stores are busy selling fresh-

In both men and women's cloth-
ing shops, sales personnel state
that the situation seems quite
usual. One salesman in a men's
store asserted, "I suppose it's just
the same old story. Freshmen are
anxious to get a few clothes with
the 'college look,' and upperclass-
men want to add to their ward-
robe in order to look more collegi-
ate than the freshmen. But what-
ever their reasons, students are
buying clothes, and I'm drawing

Among the campus eating es-
tablishments, owners claim that
the ever popular coffee date after
class and conventional dates are
back in full swing. The operator
of one popular "hamburger haven"
has noticed an increase in the
number of students. He boasted,
"The lines of students are longer
than ever, and as long as they
love hamburgers I'll love them."
