TURBULENT TRIALS OF TRYOUTS:
Daily Staffers 'Jump When Those Phones Ring'
S* * * *I * * * *

I F- 1

By LILIAS WAGNER
Daily Special Writer
Jump when those 'phones ring!
That's what Daily understaffers
have to do as they understudy for
the upper jobs on the paper.
They're the ones who write the
headlines, read the proof, take
Daily polls in rainy weather on
the Diagonal and generally work
very hard.
* * *
THE DAILY'S city room is lined
with rows of imposing desks and
file cabinets, covered with paper,
typewriters and pencils. Busy re-
porters in shirtsleeves keep the
typewriters hacking and add to
the racket of the Associated Press
teletype machine, ringing tele-
phones and occasional shouts.
Every spring and fall, several
<dozen try-outs are flung into
this atmosphere of activity and
confusion with a kind word from
their trainer and a frightened
look in.their eyes.
Nancy Bylan, who first joined
The Daily staff last spring, re-
members distinctly that long walk
from the double doors of the city
room to night desk at the other
end.
* * *
TO ME IT seemed like the last
mile," she recalled. "All I knew
was how to write a headline."
Miss Bylan had the distinction
of being the first try-out to work
on desk last spring, since she
knew the night editor. She had
been learning the ropes for sev-
eral weeks, but was not slated
to start actual work until later.
But the night editor told her to
"drop around for a while."
So she did, and claims she "sat
around looking and feeling stu-
pid" most of the evening. She
feared the upper staff editors one
and all, particularly when she met
one face to face.
He was immaculately dressed in
a light blue suit, and when he
spotted Miss Bylan, he turned to
the night editor, somewhat ir-
ritably.
* * *
"WHO'S THAT?" he asked.
Allergy Drugs
Kill Common
Cold Effects
(Continued from Page 1)
found, quite accidentally, to pre-
vent motion sickness.
At the Johns Hopkins allergy
clinic, the drug was given to a
woman who had come for hay
fever treatments. After taking the3
drug, the woman, who had suffer-
ed from "car sickness" all her;
life, reported that for the first time
she had been able to ride in a car
without discomfort.
FURTHER TESTS conducted
aboard a troop ship showed the
drug to be effective in preventing
sea sickness in about 97 per centc
of the cases tested.
Up to that time, no drug had
been found which could be used
liberally and repeatedly with-
out side effects that were almost
as bad as the motion sickness
itself.
Besides combating allergies and
colds, antihistaminics have also
been found to relieve itching in
measles, chicken pox and manyf
other unrelated skin diseases.
* * *
SIDE REACTIONS that may re-
suit from the use of antihistam-
inics depend on the specific drug
used. In general, some of these
drugs produce drowsiness or a dry
mouth; infrequently some patients

experience headache and rarely,J
nausea.

Chin qs Art
Exhibit by
U Graduate
A former University student was
honored as New ,York City's Chi-
nese section opened its first public
art exhibit Wednesday.
The exhibit showed the work of
Lo Kit-Ling, who left the Univer-
sity a month ago after studying
a year for her master's degree.
* * *
P. C. CHANG, Chinese consul-
general for New York City, and
Shavey Lee, "Mayor" of China-
town, took part in the ceremonies
which opened the exhibition.
The current showing is the
seventh to feature Miss Lo's
works since her arrival in the
United States last October. Only
a few weeks after her arrival
her pictures were exhibited in
San Francisco's De Young Mu-
seum.
Shortly before she left the Uni-
versity, her work was exhibited
in a special campus showing.
Miss Lo, who is the daughter of
a retired Cantonese merchant,
received her undergraduate train-
ing at Canton University, combin-
ing her art interests with an eco-
nomics major.
* * *
SHE HAS since given up her
graphs and text books for brush
and scroll.
She plans to keep the Chinese
mode of art as her medium, rather
than switching to the western
style. She feels that she can best
express herself in the art form of
her ancient heritage.

LEGISLATURE IN REVIEW:
Summer SL Hears Guest Speakers

A series of guest lecturers, a
new voting procedure and a free
summer dance were the chief ac-
complishments of Student Legis-
lature, composed this summer of
seven enterprising politicians.
Greatest of these accomplish-
ments was the inauguration of
guest speakers from the Univer-
sity administration to promote
closer and better relations be-

tween student, faculty and ad-
ministration personnel.
* * *
GUESTS FOR the summer were
Dean of Students Erich A. Walter,
Prof. Lionel H. Laing and Assist-
ant Dean of Women Mary C. Bro-
make.
The Legislature hopes to con-
tinue the series during their reg-
ular sessions.

RISE AND SHINE:
SU' Doctor Tells Advantages
Of Early Walking for Patients

A better voting procedure, sug-
gested by Dean Walter and taken
up by SL, will be the result of its
work next fall. The procedure,
though not yet formulated, is
hoped to increase the student vote
and make the personnel elected
more representative of the voters.
It is also designed to make vot-
ing easier.
* * *
CLIMAX OF THE summer so-
cial season came when SL and the
University Administration, in the
first evidence of their closer coop-
eration, collaborated to sponsor a
free summer informal dance,
which was attended by more than
1,000 students.
Other SL summer accomplish-
ments were:
Plans to renew efforts to in-
stall the "Meet Your Regents"
program in the fall.
* * *
A RESOLUTION offering SL's
services to the University's Phoe-
nix Project, a program to utilize
atomic energy for peace.
A proposal to set up a com-
mittee of legislators, Interfra-
ternity Council members and
faculty and administration per-
sonnel to prepare an anti-dis-
crimination program to go Into
effect next fall.
A petition sent to Sen. Arthur
H. Vandenberg in praise of the
UN Genocide Convention.

;A

Getting a patient to walk as
soon as possible after an opera-
tion has many advantages, Dr.
Marion S. DeWeese, of the Uni-
versity Medical School reported.
Speaking before a recent med-
ical convention, Dr. DeWeese said
early walking improves appetite,
the capacity of the lungs returns
to normal more rapidly and less
sedatives are needed.
* * *
NO DAMAGE to the healing
wound occurs, Dr. DeWeese con-
tinued, and less nursing care is
necessary.
"Experience at the University
Hospital with patients who are
up within 24 hours after an op-
eration is completely favorable,"
Dr. DeWeese said.
"In addition to avoiding com-
plications appearing from a too-

long stay in bed, like pneumonia
and blood clots, the patient finds
his physical and emotional con-
valescence shortened."
* * *
DR. DE WEESE also pointed out
that the average person ap-
proaches a surgical procedure with
a variety of emotions.
"A few moments devoted to a
sympathetic discussion of every
patient's disease, the anesthetic,
the operation, how the patient can
expect to feel afterwards, and the
cast, will help him approach the
coming ordeal much better pre-
pared emotionally," the doctor de-
clared.

NANCY BYLAN-DAILY STAFFER

The night editor shrugged her
shoulders and grimaced signifi-
cantly. "Oh, you know," she told
him.
Miss Bylan quivered. The edi-
tor bellowed, "Well, try-outs
aren't supposed to work desk
for another week yet!'" and
turned on his heel. y
Miss Bylan also forgot to count
the spaces between words in the
first headline she wrote, which
she realized later on. She was

afraid to confess her mistake for
fear she'd be told to leave.
HOWEVER, she, like most try-
outs (who all make errors) got
through her first semester and
wrote her first story, which re-
ceived "my first and last favor-
able comment" on the city editor's
criticism the next day.
She even got through the
weekly try-out quizzes, although
she joined the ranks of Those
Who Almost Didn't Get There
by fluking one of the exams.

Miss Bylan is a first semester
junior from Grand Rapids who ex-
pects to graduate in June, 1951.
She is majoring in history and
has handled church beat on the
summer Daily.
She, like most understaffers, ad-
mits it's not so bad after one un-
derstands what's going on. Even
editors don't bite awvhen one gets
to know them!
But if the telephone should
ring - just watch those staffers
leap!

"FRATERNITY (sorority) members and pledges who feel that
their societies should accept for membership persons of all religions
give most frequently such reasons as being against discrimination
or intolerance, or believing in equality. Some say that judgment
should be based on individual merit rather than on religion."
"Those members and pledges who think that fraternities (soror-
ities) should not accept for membership persons of all religions say
they hold this opinion because of tradition or social pressure."
