LA VENTANA Tech ' s Picture Window As windows are portals that re- veal the world, the La Ventana is " The Window " of Texas Tech. Actually it is a complex of pic- ture windows reflecting a view of every aspect of campus life. Supervision of this window com- plex is the job of co-editors Ronnie Lott and Beverly Hunt. Lott, a junior from Roswell, New Mexico, served the 1966-67 La Ventana as editor of Tyme and Sports Illustrated. Miss Hunt, a senior from Odessa, was last year ' s picture editor. The La Ventana editors were called upon during the year to per- form several outside activities such as speaking to area high schools on the field of journalism and judging vari- ous campus and high school contests. The traditional magazine format of the La Ventana was first in- troduced in 1959 by W. E. Carets, head of the journalism department. Each section editor strived to achieve the look and style of their namesake publications. The first portal is Tyme which contains the dedication of the year- book. It also includes the activities of the religious organizations, music groups, journalism and the military. This window was viewed and com- piled by Donna Johnstone. Mademoiselle is the view devoted to the women ' s associations — social, honorary and departmental. Specially honored are Miss Mademoiselle, the Women of the Year and Tech ' s Best Dressed Woman. Editor of Mademoi- selle was Sheila Looney. A revealing window is Playboy, which has as its main feature a three page foldout of Tech ' s playmate elected annually. Playboys included are the members of the men ' s organi- zations. Barbara Reed was the editor.

rvf Jim West, David Snyder and Roy McQueen look over the final copy for another issue of the University Daily. UNIVERSITY DAILY Approaching Professional Standards The University Daily, the stu- dent newspaper, is a vital part of Tech life, bringing the international, national, state, local and campus new s to the students daily Tuesday through Saturday. In the changing world in which we live, the active staff is kept busy informing the student body of the la- test happenings. The staff is striving to better inform through its goal of attempting to attain the standards of a professional newspaper. David Snyder ' s previous work and outstanding leadership have merited for him a second year as editor-in-chief. This has only been accomplished a few times in the long history of the paper. Roy McQueen and Jim West are the managing editors whose responsi- bility it is to provide content and make-up for the first page. Also the staff includes Katie O ' Neill, news editor; Rita Williams, campus editor; Bill Moore, sports editor; Rodney Kemp, assistant sports editor; Margaret Eastman, fine arts editor; Casey Charness, assistant fine arts editor; Vy Townsend, edito- rial assistant; Kyle Morse, picture editor; Fred Koenig, advertis- ing manager; and Jean Fannin, John DroUinger, Bill Seyler, Janyth Car- penter and Lee Mabrito, copy editors. Several of the members have been on previous staffs which illus- trates the experience that is evident in the paper. Besides the regular staff, the first year journalism reporting stu- dents cover campus activities, while the advanced classes are assigned city news coverage of such variety as bond issues, the city council, and the Board of City Development. The latest innovation of the Uni- versity Daily is the new printing pro- cess — the offset method. Moreover, this is the first time that the paper has been printed off-campus since the publication began as the Toreador in 1925. Throughout the past forty-two years, the student newspaper has been approaching professional stand- ards. In the recent years the paper has grown with the school so that now it is a full size paper with the style and news of the national papers. Being a member of the As- sociated Press, the University Daily obtains news first-hand. A new col- umn, " News Focus Today by the As- sociated Press, " was added this year. It is a column on the first page containing top news of national and international interest. K " " ' Hi In competition, the publication has brought honor to the school, al- ways receiving top awards given by the Southwestern Press Club of the Southwestern Journalism Congress. The editorial page, the heart of the newspaper, plays an active role in student events by revealing the top controversial subjects on campus.
