Remove the Seal,
The action of the Board of Regents
in taking steps to prevent local com-
mercial houses from using the univer-.
sity seal and stamp upon advertising
and stationery is well taken. The
Daily took up the fight over a year
ago and warmly advocated any action
which would remove the university's
seal from such an ignoble position.
Nothing was done at the time but stu-
dent and faculty opinion has since,
been crystallizing, and culminated in.
the action of the governing body at
its last meeting.
Local merchants ought to have seen'
their position long before. The sealr
naturally creates an excellent impres-
sion upon the unknowing when
used upon advertising matter. But
they are dependent upon the student
body for a livelihood and should do
.Support the Dlaily.
The Michigan Daily is the newspa-
per of the 'university, and, as such, de-
serves the support of both "the faculty
and student body. The men who com-
prise the staff, both reportorial, and
business, are 'working for the love of
the egame and because they desire to,
give their university a good, square
newspaper. They are on the job all
of the time, ready to make any per-
sonal sacrifice to secure news. The
Michigan. Daily office is equipped. with
It certainly should be the right and
privilege of The Daily to demand that
news given to metropolitan papers
be given it at the same time. News a
day or more old is 'no longer news to
any but -a weekly publication. There
have been many cases in the past
where The Daily has been forced to
allow itself "scooped" after securing.
a story long in advance of other pub-
lications, because the "time was not
ripe." A day or so later the foreign
publications ran the story and The
Daily was "scooped."
The latest example of such unfair
treatment occurred but a few days ago.
A -Daily reporter secured the story of
Dean Reed's :leave of absence almost
two"weelts . before :anyone except cer-
tain faculty members was aware of
it. Upon . the - request "that
the :time was not ripe" for
its publication The Daily withheld'
it for some time. In the Thursday edi-
tion of a Detroit paper appeared 'the
Dean Reed story. Friday morning the
Daily ran a story in which several
members of the faculty denied any
knowledge of Dean Reed's intentions.
Saturday morning, after' the Board of
Regents meeting, The .Daily ran the
story of Dean .Reed's withdrawal for
nearly two years; three. days old as
far as news was concerned.
All The Daily desires is a fair show.
Our staff is as capable of collecting
news correctly ' as any repre-
sentatives of the foreign. press.
Not , only -is it"in fairness due'
The Daily, but also the student
body,-.that the university's publication'
receive a fair show. If the paper is to
be only a catspaw" thenf it is high time
that the student body was informed
of such a fact to enable them to take
their information with this fact in
Some faculty members feel different-
ly, however, and these we desire to
thank most heartily. Of these men'
there are many. But one instance is'
a recent action by Dean Henry M.
Bates who on this, as on many other
occasions, .went to considerable 'troub-
le to see that the university newspaper,
was given an equal chance with the
foreign' press and that the university1
public had the same opportunity toI
secure information which the state in1
