Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock the CRIMSON will inaugurate competitions in four of its departments. With a meeting of all candidates in the President's office at the CRIMSON Building on Plympton Street. Juniors alone will be offered an opportunity to compete for the Editorial department, while only Sophomores may engage in News Business, or Photographic work. Freshmen competitions of the Editorial will be announced in the latter part of the winter.
Competitions Last 11 weeks
The competitions which last approximately 11 weeks are admittedly strenuous but absorbing and pleasant in most of their aspects. AT the end of this period those men who are elected to the Board of Editors will have the opportunity of entering further competitions for positions as officers of the CRIMSON. Previous experience, either in college or in school newspaper work is unnecessary for the student who wishes to enter one of these competitions, which offer work of a varied nature. In all departments candidates are from the start given responsible work and a free rein to their individual talents and ingenuity.
News Work Is Varied
The News competition which consists of writing routine news of the University, ferreting out unusual stories or "scoops", interviewing prominent and interesting men, and a certain amount of office work, gives the candidate an unequalled chance to become familiar with every branch of the University and other outside activities. To the CRIMSON news candidate alone comes the thrill of meeting and talking with the most noted visitors or of seeing for the first time his story reprinted intact in a Boston paper.
