All · our material will come from you the student and is put together by a student staff with Mr. Koch as our advisor. In order to do this the staff needs your work. We wou ld like to ask you now to think about what you will submit and if you are interested working on the Symposium staff. We are going to publish two issues and maybe three with the first one coming out near the end of the fall quarter. Again I would like to make it known that we need more staff. As a member of the staff we all choose the rork to be used, and take part in its designing. We think of each issue as a new challenge and therefore each issue will have a new design and format. The editors hope to see you at our table during freshman orientation and at that time we would like to discuss symposium and hand out copies of our last is&_ue.
