Gargoyle Is Junior Magazine
Gargoyle, issued monthly, provides
opportunity for students interested
in humor and cartoons. The Technic,
edited and written by undergraduates
in the engineering school, contains
articles on new developments in, that
Contemporary, established three
years ago, has now proved its worth.
Its pages include short fiction, ar-
ticles, editorials and poetry by stu-
dent contributors.
The 'Ensian, the annual, includes
activities of the year of all classes in
the University. Students interested1
in photography are especially needed1
for this project, as for Gargoyle.

first issue early in the first semes-
ter, is a newly approved venture that
has met with wide acclaim. Its pages
will contain hundreds of camera

The University has six large tele-
scopes in its observatories, four of
which are in Ann Arbor. There is
a 28-inch reflector telescope in a
University site at Bloemferstein, Or-
ange Free State, South Africa, for
observational work in the Southern
Hemisphere. At Lake Angels, Mich.
near Pontiac, there is a 10-inch re-
flector type and other equipment.
In Ann Arbor, there are two ob-
serving sites. The Observatory has a
37%'4-inch refractor which is used for
photography and spectroscope work.
It also boasts a 12-inch refractor tele-
scope. The Angell Hall telescopes are

In the near future, the University
will boast the third largest telescope

The new mirror is 971/ inches in

periodical devoted to it.
The purpose of the new "Panor-
ama," according to Miss Hanson, is
to have in pictures a record of cam-
pus activities in order that they may
be more easily remembered. Ac-
counts of the May Festival, J.G.P.,
and Lantern Night are among things
planned for the year. Unusual shots,
such as the inside of the Carillon
shaft, are also planned by members
of the staff of "Panorama."
Lodge pointed out that departments
will be given over to sports, meetings,
activities, . concerts, editorials and
some of the weekly dances. He added
that each issue will average about
40 pages witha circulation of 2,000.

The Daily are given beats of minor
importance, and also work on the
night desk one night each week. More
responsible beats are given the more
promising reporters in their sopho-
more year, and approximately nine
from this class are given salaried po-
sitions as assistant editors in their
junior year.
The work done by the student dur-
ing his junior year on The Daily is
chiefly composed of editing the paper
one night each week. The night edi-
tor has complete charge of every page
in his paper, although he does not

make up the editorial, sports and
woman's pages..
Membership Of Board
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 ed-
itors, usually consisting of six or
seven seniors, who have full charge
of the paper's management.
The same promotion process is ap-
plied to the business staff of The
Daily, six juniors being paid salaries.
There are only two" senior managers
-a business manager and an ac-
counts manager.
Gargoyle and The Michigensian
follow the same promotion system,
with their staffs slightly smaller than
that of The Daily. Gargoyle is wide-

ly known for the excellence of its
pgsBonus System Set Up
Under a new system established by
the Board in Control, the business
manager and editor of Gargoyle are
paid a salary, plus a bonus based on
the profits of the magazine at the
conclusion of the year.
The Student Directory is published
in the fall of each year by the staff
of the 'Ensian.
Panorama's complete staff has not
yet been selected by the editors, but
will be composed of outstanding stu-
dents who apply for work on the in-
itial issues.
The Technic is not under the juris-
diction of the Board in Control of
Publications, its management being
directed by the engineering school.
