Salaries Are Paid

Freshman Eligibility Is
Set High
Five publications, edited and man-
aged solely by undergraduates, await
the entering student at the University
who wishes to gain practical knowl-
edge and experience in editing a
newspaper or magazine.
The publications are: The Michi-
gan Daily, The Gargoyle, The
Michiganensian, Contemporary, and
The Technic.
The Daily is published every morn-
ing during the regular school year
and Summer Session, except on Mon-
days and University holidays.
The Gargoyle, campus humor
magazine, appears monthly as does
the Technic, which is a magazine for
Contemporary, which is compari-
tively new, having been established
last year, is a literary quarterly, and
the 'Ensian is the University year-
All freshmen who have attained a
scholastic average of one B and no
D's or E's in their first semester may
try out for any of these publications
the second half of their first year.
Given 'Beats'
In the freshman year on The Daily
the freshman tryout is given "beats"
of minor importance and works on
the night desk one night a week.
More responsible "beats" are given
the more promising reporters in their
sophomores year and approximately
nine from the class of sophomore re-
porters are given salaried positions
as assistant editors in their junior
The type of wrk done by the stu-
dent during his junior year on The
Daily is composed chiefly of editing,
the paper one night every week. The
night editor has complete charge of
every page in the paper, although he
does not make up the sports, social,
or editorial pages.
In the senior year, the Board in
Control of Student Publications, com-
posed of four faculty and three stu-
dent members, selects a board of edi-
tors, composed usually of six or seven
seniors and these students have com-
plete charge of the management of
the paper.
The same promotion process is ap-
plied to the business staff of The
Daily, six juniors being paid salaries,
but there are only two senior man-1
agers, a busines manager and ac-;
counts manager.
Follow Same System4
The Gargoyle and Michiganensian
folow the same promotion system
but their staffs are slightly smaller'
than that of the Daily. Excellent3
experience in editing and writing
copy for a humor magazine, as well
as cartoon and photography work is
afforded interested students. The1
Gargoyle, according to a national
judging, ranks along with the Har-
vard Lampoon as the "tops" among
college humor publications.
The Gargoyle staff is also divided,
there being an editorial and business
staff. Under a new system estab-
lished by the Board in Control, the
business manager and editor of the1
Gargoyle are paid a salary and a
bonus based on the profits of the
magazine at the end. of each school
The Michiganensian staff has ap-
proximately the same setup as the
Daily and Gargoyle, although the
members of that staff also publish
the Student Directory in the fall of
each year.
The Technic, monthly engineering
magazine, is not under the jurisdic-
tion of the Board in Control of Pub-
lications as it is in the engineering
college, but its organization is some-
what similar to that of the Gargoyle.
Professors Write
Articles by noted University pro-

fessors, who are erperts in their field,t
make up the bulk of the magazine,
and the magazine is noted for its
excellent photographic layouts.
Contemporary, being as young as its
is, has not been placed under thet
Board in Control of Student Publica-
tions as yet, but it is believed that if
the magazine should have as suc-
cessful a year as they did last year,1
the Board might "take it under its!
The magazine is made up of fic-
tion, non-fiction, and poetry written
by students and are of an eexcep-
tionally excellent character, accord-
ing to members of the English fac-
ulty. Prize story contests are run
by the editors in which the studentt
submitting the best work wins a $10
credit slip at one of the local book-
stores with which he may buy books.

May Festivals
Bring" Host Of
Music TaWenI
For Forty-Two Years Ann
Arbor Has Been Scene
Of Fine Programs
Famous and distinguished soloists.
internationally renowned musical or-
ganizations, and purely amateur
choral unites of University students
all combine talents in Ann Arbor each
spring in the annual May Festival,
one of the outstanding music festi-
vals in the United States.
For 42 years, the May Festival has
continually attracted the "cream"
of America's musical personnel for
its concert programs.
Another great program is now be-
ing assembled for the 1936 festival,
one which is expected to surpass even
the splendor and magnitude of its 42
Festival concerts present music-go-
ers with an opportunity to hear vocal
and instrumental soloists, an out-
standing symphony orchestra, choral
works of classic value, and each sea-
son a world premiere of some orches-
tral or choral composition.
Last year's May Festival brought
such stars to Ann Arbor as Helen
Moore, Helen Jepson, Myrtle Leonard,
Ruth Posselt, Wilbur Evans, Maxim
Panteleiff, Giovanni Martinelli, Josef
Lhevinne, Ethyl Hayden, Theodore
Webb, and Paul Leyssac.
For more thanb30years, Dr. Fred-
erick Stock has brought the Chicago
Symphony Orchestra's complete unit
here to provide the orchestration for
the festivals. They will be heard
again this May.
The University Choral Union, a
chorus of University students, an-
nually presents such outstanding
choral workers as Haydn's "Seasons"
and Moussorgsky's "Boris GOdunof,
in conjunction with important vocal
In 1933 the opera "Merrymount"
was given its world premiere at the
May Festival. The following fall it
was sung- at the Metropolitan in New
York. Other compositions which
were given their priemeres at Festi-
vals in Ann Arbor, received similar
success shortly thereafter.
Tickets for the May Festival are
extremely moderately priced so as to
enable students to attend. For as lit-
tle as $2, a student is able to attend
all six concerts.
