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. Re- cent outstanding questions per- tained to the name change issue, new Code of Student Affairs, state sup- port to higher education, and other various subjects which developed durnig the year. Through these ed- torials, the readers may better see many sides of an issue. In 1965 when the University Speaker Series began, there were four speakers. Now its agenda has been greatly enlarged and includes many of the nation ' s most outstand- ing people from diversified walks of life. All of the University Series speakers are covered and interviewed by the University Daily reporters. The fine art columns have been expanded considerably this year. This increase is due to the additional fine t 4 Tyme

PUBLICATIONS High Standards Set The Publications Committee was responsible for several changes this year. It revamped the La Ventana of- fice, the make-up of the yearbook and its staff and gave a new look to the University Daily. Members of the committee have the duties of selecting editors, con- trolling the budget and determining the philosophy to which the University Daily and La Ventana subscribe. The committee has the general supervision over all student publications. It sees that high standards are maintained and has the power to remove editors from office. The 1967-68 committee had six faculty members, four student mem- bers, and two non-voting members. Addition of the non-voting members is the most significant change in the make-up of the committee. Members of the committee are : Dr. C. L. Allen, professor of journalism; Bill Dean, director of student publica- tions. Dr. E. A. Gillis, chairman of English department; Rae L. Harris, as- sistant professor of geo-science; Dr. Bill C. Lockhart, chairman of art; Dr. Reginald Rushing, chairman of ac- counting; Dr. L. K. Evans, professor of elementary education ; and Jean Fin- ley, secretary. Students serving on the commit- tee were: Dave Hancock, senior; John Hutt, junior; Brian lemons, junior; and Lorrie Woods, senior. Serving on the Publications Committee are: back row Dr. C. L. Allen, Brian Lemons, Rae L. Harris. Front Dr. L K. Evans, Lorrie Woods.

Gillis, Dr. Bill Lockhart, row: Dave Hancock, John Hutt, Jean Finley, Murray said, " The purpose is to bet- ter tell Texas Tech ' s story through pro- fessional artists and writers. " Ron Hamm, director for two years, has the continuous task of in- forming the world about a constantly progressing Tech. Hamm is assisted by news, publications and photographic bureaus. The division is composed of fifteen persons who write, publish and distribute news stories daily to stu- dents, faculty and other interested per- sons on a national and international basis. John Petty continued as assistant director; Dawson Oppenheimer, in charge of news release; Jerry Kelly, as publications manager; Judy Luker, as secretary; and Ellis Finch directed the photographic bureau as head pho- tographer. A story about a Tech co-ed work- ing her way through school by raising and selling quarter horses was printed in an international publication. As a result, the co-ed was offered an ap- pearance on a Japanese television sta- tion. This incident is symbolic of the vast interest Information Services arouses in world-wide news organiza- tions. Some duties of the division on the campus are publishing the campus directory, campus maps, " Tech Times, " " Icasal Newsletter, " and " Texas Tech Reports. " Requests for Tech news re- leases are constantly coming in from all over the nation. i t ■v3 6 Tyme 4 I
