Often claimed a menace to stu-
dent and city pedestrians, the bi-
cycle has become a tradition on
the Ann Arbor campus.
Found jammed in front of all
building entrances and lined in
bike racks around these same en-
trances, the increased popularity'
of bicycles as a mode of transpor-
tation has caused several bicycle
ordinances to be enforced by the
city.
To accommodate the approxi-
mately 13,500 bikes on campus as
well as the 23,000 students, the city;
has forbidden riding or parking
of the vehicles on State street and
several adjoining side-streets. Any
bikes found in violation of the law
are promptly ticketed.

A bikes must be registered and
licensed by the city during the
month of September. The license
fee is 50 cents.
The University, too, has to cope
with the large number of bikes
found around classroom buildings
and libraries. Signs are found near
many buildings forbidding the
parking of the vehicles in front
of all entrances. As a result, bike
racks are continually being in-
stalled around many buildings.
The problem of controlling the
number of bicycles jammed around
building entrances despite the
posted signs is being worked out
by the Student Government Coun-
cil.

"We are here to help a reporter
get a story faster by referring him
to qualified information sources,"
William Beyers, assistant editor
of the University News Service,
declared.
The News Service acts as a news
agency centered in and around
the University. The Service has
reporters that cover stories in each
department of the University,. and
most of the major service and re-
search organizations on campus,
such as: Research Institute, the
Music Society and the Office of
Student Affairs.
Many of the stories that come
are sent to the student's home
out concerning individual students

Honors Convocation is reported

names being sent out.
The - News Service offices p:
pare 150 to 250 news releases ea
month. The information is a
quired by a staff of reporters w
gather material from the origir
source.
The Michigan radio and new
papers are the prime concern
the Service. It supplies uiform
tion for 17,000 publications. Ma:
of these publications are techi
cal magazines and bulletins ti
need research data from the Un
versity.
