Notables To Try Out
For Daily Tomorrow
Novelists, foreign correspondents, governors, editors and advertis.
ing magnates will assemble at 4 p.m. tomorrow in the Student Pub-
lications Building to try out for The Daily.
You won't recognize any notables among the group that gathers
for this first meeting, but they'll be there, for sure. A file in the
editorial'office of The Daily proves it.

THE FILE RUNS BACK to 1890, the first year of publication. It
contains the names of some 250 former staff members. And it includes
some of the most successful men and women in nearly every kind
They all worked, up from The Bottom, whose headquarters
you will find at 420 Maynard St., one block west of Angell Hall.
There's Frank Gilbreth, author of the best-selling book "Cheaper
by the Oozen." He was managing editor of The Daily in the early '30's.
There's H. C. L. Jackson, noted Detroit columnist, who served as
Daily city editor back in days of Yost.
There's Denis Flanagan, editor of the magazine Scientific Ameri-
can. He is another former city editor, of late '30's vintage.
A CHICAGO TRIBUNE advertising manager worked for The
Daily. So did the advertising manager of a large automobile manu-
facturer, the news editor of a radio station, editors of weekly news-
papers, screen writers, and editors of technical publications.
And reporters-they're a dime a dozen in the files of Daily alumni.

RIGHT NOW The Daily has positions open on both the business
and editorial staffs. And opportunities on The Daily during the sum-
