Single editorship proves to be effective creativity enhanced The 1985 La Ventana is the first one produced under a single editorship since 1958. For the past 26 years, the year- book has had co-editors. " The Student Publications Committee decided that con- solidating all the power in one person would be a more effi- cient and effective way to put out a yearbook, " " said Mike Haynes, La Ventana ' s edito- rial adviser. ' " The committee chose Christy Hagler, who is a businesslike person and has been as effective as anyone could be in that position. " " In contrast to the previous setup, the new system is com- posed of one editor and two assistant editors — one for graphics and one for copy. The rest of the staff consists of section editors, writers and volunteers. Nina Ronshausen, who chaired the Student Publica- tions Committee when the ini- tial decision was made to re- turn to a single editor, said the idea of two co-editors corre- sponds with the concept that two heads are better than one: in short, creative input will in- crease as work loads are even- ly divided. Richard Lytle, director of student publications, said, " Christy established the ma- jor policies and motivated the staff. She had assistant editors to help her carry out those policies. " " Haynes " position also was new to La Ventana. In the past, the student publications director handled the editorial advising duties; Haynes pointed out that now, the stu- dent staff has more ready ac- cess to an adviser. " Mike makes sense out of chaos and gets people orga- nized, " " said Camille Wheeler, assistant editor for copy. " I would not have made it through this year without him. It " s comforting to know that Mike ' s around to straighten out any kind of mess I might get myself into, no matter what that mess is. " ' Haynes said that based on this year " s performance with a single editor, the Student Pub- lications Committee voted to allow the single editorship concept to continue. La Ventana editorial adviser Mike Haynes discusses the book with copy- writers at the beginning of the year. Both Wheeler and Cath Peterson, assistant editor foi graphics, said they wer pleased with being able to d( what they most enjoy. ' " I havi enjoyed doing graphics am layouts, " said Peterson, " be, cause I had the opportunity tJ be creative and try new thingi that I would not have gotten t. do as co-editor. " " " I think the system will cor tinue because people do a beil ter job when they are doin[ what they like to do, " " Whee ' ersaid. " This way we can coi centrate on what we like to d and what we are best at. " " — Tricia Hargrax La Ventana sororities editor K; Hopkins types cutlines for the Alpl Phi section. The sororities sectic also included queens and little sister Camille Wheeler, assistant editor for copy, fills out copy assignments for the copywriters. Wheeler, a senior, joined the staff in November. Alan Andrews 170 — La Ventana
