Daily Issues Call
For Staff Tryouts
Members for Editorial, Sports,
Business Crews Needed Now
Novelists, foreign correspondents, governors, editors, advertising
magnates and distinguished photographers will assemble at 4 p.m-
tomorrow in the Student Publications Building to try out for The
You won't recognize any notables among the group that gathers
for this first meeting, but they'll be there, for certain. 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 in-
cludes some of the most successful men and women in nearly every
kind of work.
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 Dozen." He was managing editor of The Daily in the early
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

And reporters-they're a dime a dozen in the files of Daily
alumni. You can find former Daily workers writing for news-
papers from Maine to California.
Thomas E. Dewey, governor of New York, was a telegraph editor
for The Daily.

RIGHT NOW The Daily has positions open on the business, sports
and editorial staffs. And opportunities on The Daily during the sum-
mer session are even greater than in the regular terms.
There is a place for everyone, from the first semester fresh-
men exercising newly-won eligibility, to graduate students.
Tryouts for the editorial staff will learn the arts of proof-reading
and headline writing first, and will then be assigned 'beats' for prac-
tice in news coverage.
Photographers who are familiar with the intricacies of a
speed graphic, and who have had darkroom experience will be
more than welcomed4,
Business staffers will be enlightened about techniques of sales-
manship, circulation and advertising management and accounting.
With a smaller staff there is more experience for everyone. There
are those who insist that Dewey would have been President now if he
had started on The Daily in the summer.
Enrollment in the University's
58th Summer Session took a slight
dip from last year's registration
total as University officials report-
ed 7,648 enrollees.
However, late registration and
enrollment at the University's
eight summer camps were expect-
ed to boost attendance to 8,800.
Last year, 8,262 attended the open-
ing day of summer classes while
the final figure stood at 9,445.
LATE REGISTRATION is per-
mitted during the summer because
a large number of teachers, mostly
enrolling in the education graduate
school, instruct in schools still op-
erating at the beginning of the
The ratio of men to women
remained substantially the same
as last summer as the women's
percentage took its annual up-
ward swing. Of those attending
classes this week, 5,157 were men
and 2,491 women, compared to
5,661 men and 2,601 women last

of GI Bills, veteran attendance

ANOTHER INDICATION of a
general decline in enrollment was
seen in the smaller number of de-
grees issued by the University in
the past year.
Degrees were granted to 3,562
at the 107th commencement on
June 16, Secretary Herbert G.
Watkins reported. The final
count was achieved after the
faculty's reports on final grades
for those who were candidates
for degrees had been completed.
The June figure brought to 6,393
the total number of degrees grant-
ed during the year by the Univer-
sity. This figure is below the re-
cord-breaking number for last year
when 7,048 degrees were granted.
The degrees granted in June in-
cluded 913 from the College of Lit-
erature, Science and the Arts; 835
from the School of Graduate Stud-
ies; 415 from the College of Engi-
neering; and, 365 from the School
of Business Administration.
Center Will Close
The Vocational Guidance Cen-
ter of the Veterans Administra-
tion, in operation at the Univer-
sity since May, 1945, will close its
doors June 30, a VA spokesman
The decision of the VA to close
the center has been protested by
Ted Woodruff, president of the
Washtenaw County Veterans
Woodruff cited the fact that
about 3,500 veterans will be at-
tendingathelUniversity next fall
and that all those here under
Public Law 16 (disabled veterans)
are requirpd to take the vocational
tests by law.
Disabled veterans attending the
University next fall will have to
journey to Michigan State College
or Highland Park Junior College
to take their examinations.
Elmer Darling, chief of the VA
rehabilitation division at Detroit,
declared that the University had
been notified of the move 90 days
prior to the shut-down order, but
refused to continue the service
under an alternate plan proposed
by the VA.
The University, according to
Darling, later reconsidered and
requested the testing service a
week ago, but was informed it
had acted too late.

Banquet To. Climax Law
School Taxation Confab
By JOHN BRILEY
The Law School's summer insti-
tute on the "Taxation of Business
Enterprise" wil be climaxed by a
banquet at 7 p.m. today in the
Union which will feature a discus-
sion of "A Tax Policy to meet the
Harley L. Lutz, tax consultant
for the National Association of
Manufacturers, and Randolph E.
Paul will present opposing views
on meeting the current tax prob-

the banquet, will plead a general

ALSO INCLUDED on today's
program of the institute will be
a discussion of the Excess Profits
Tax of 1950 at 9 a.m. and a de-
bate on general relief provisions at
2 p.m. Both sessions will be held
in Rm. 100 of Hutchins Hall and
are open to the public.
Yesterdiy's program featured
a debate between Richard Slitor,
tax advisor for the Treasury,
and Beardsley Ruml, past chair-
man of the board of Macy's in
New York and professor emeri-
tus of the University of Chicago.
A large crowd heard Ruml tear
into the Administration's tax poli-
cy in general and the excess prof-
its tax in particular. Slitor de-
fended government policy on the
basis of need for revenue and con-
fusion in economic theory about
its actual effects.
Ruml hit especially at the "dou-
ble-tax" that results from taxing
both corporations and stockhold-
ers as individuals.

SLITOR HAD previously argued
that much of the burden of cor-
porate taxation was shifted to cus-
tomers or employees so that the
problem of "double-taxing" stock-
holders was not as great as it
LONDON-(W)-The Royal Navy
ordered the Cruiser Mauritius to
Abadan yesterday to protect Brit-

At the same time the British-
owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Com-

at Abadan are threatened with
seizure under Premier Mohammed
Mossadegh's nationalization law,
ordered all its tankers to pull out
of the Iranian refinery port at
once-presumably to avoid being
involved in any trouble.
