This fall Mademoiselle is again
recruiting students from Oregon
for a national college board,
according to a recent bulletin.
This board is set up on almost
every major campus in the coun
try. Members are chosen on a com
petitive basis by means of a defin
ite application procedure. Once a
member of the board is chosen, she
must complete approximately four
assignments throughout the year
(with prizes of victory bonds and
stamps for the best finished pro
ducts). Keeping the magazine in
formed of campus activities and
trends and sending in snapshots
and ideas are some assignments.
Paid for Articles
In addition to the prizes, a mem
ber is paid for any actual articles,
ideas or pictures used. The qual
ity of her work counts toward her
application for a guest editorship.
E^iCh year, in the late spring, 14
wllege board members are selec
ted to go to New York in June
and spend a month as guest
editors, putting together the
August college issue.
Training received by members
of the board is invaluable for those
seriously interested in journalism,
advertising, copywriting, fashion
or other phases of publication
work. The magazine staff itself
keeps in constant touch with all
its representatives and is glad to
sponsor any new talent which may
crop up, according to the bulletin.
