PEACE, IT'S WONDERFUL-Responsibility behind him, the signatory of Michigan Daily critic
sheets tilts back his chair, rest his feet on the desk, and luxuriates instead of infuriates. With the
passing of Daily City Editor VGN, Vern Nahrgang can contemplate red pencils, typographical errors
and misquoted professors with an amused grin, and the simple comment, "Curious!"

Little pieces of obscure inf or-
mation such as this are stored in
VGN's brain, to be used at appro-
priate times-and even inappro-
priate times.j
As city editor, VGN is extremelyl
efficient. His is the only neat desk'
in the Senior Editorial office. Four'
tacks are used to put up all the
notices to the staff and his mar-
gins are always precise.
Even his books are arranged
between book-ends according to
size and shape. Because of his
fanaticism for neatness, VGN has
been given the title of "this year's
oddball" on The Daily staff.
But inspite of these idiosyncra-
sies, or perhaps because of them,
VGN has earned the respect of his

There's an old saw held by the
Student Publications people that
city editors are intensely disliked
by one and all-that is, until they,
leave office in the spring.

And here VGN is no exception.
He was duly warned about this by
last year's city editor, "Little
Caesar" Lee Marks, so VGN made
it a point to be intensely disliked
by the lower staff during his


System Beaten

"After all," he would says, lift-

only way they'll do any work for
you. Indiscriminate ise of the
eyebrow trick earned VGN his
name in Michigamua, senior men's
honorary, of which he was a mem-
VGN sarcastically wended his
way through an entire year, bark-
ing, giving orders and lifting eye-
brows. Now the inevitable has
happened. VGN has become a
proverbial "has-been" and The
Daily staff members have actually
proferred affection toward him.
Reciprocal Friendliness
VGN doesn't quite know how to
take it, but he grudgingly accepts
it, and as soon as their backs are
turned, shoots them with his squirt
gun. This is his way of returning

of Student Government Council
and friend of VGN, once remarked
in passing, "If this country ever

one of my better friends-he buys

her coke a little, take a gulp andj
