every two weeks. It also sends out special articles
on request.
But the "big" news of sports, society, campus ac-
tivities, University improvements, and the like, -
all good news in -itself, - is. omitted, or else gets
mention in condensed form. The result is that the
editor takes the sensational stuff his correspondent
hands out, and the Associated Press men and local
press representatives thrive at the expense of the
University and the Press service.
One trouble is that the hi-weekly news sheets are
too formal to interest many editors, To supply the
news when it is most needed, a press service should
be irregular, almost erratic. "The lack of funds
has precluded the use of a wire service," says Pro-
fessor Brumm. Yet the present Michigan News
bureau, still a temporary organization, has used wire
service very extensively without spending moe than
five dollars inside of six months for messages. Ar-
ticles are sent by day press rate, collect; *hat the
papers use they pay for - in telegraph fees.
Furthermore, the present "bi-weekly broadsides"
are prepared and edited by members of the Univer-
sity faculty, who,'besides being certain to take the
"inside" view of all local matters, are far too busy
with academic affairs to catch all the news that is
flying about. Meanwhile, too, the University Press
service is failing entirely to keep in touch with local
correspondents.
Faculty attitude laudable enough in itself, cannot
possibly shut out "jazz" stories. What is needed is
some official, not too intimately connected with the
faculty and yet not too far removed from the "in-
side" to be out of touch with the workings of the
University, this official to give his full time to the
dissemination of. University news. Such a man,
with his assistants, would not necessarily invade the
field of local correspondents; yet he should be able
to get their confidence to such a degree that he could
successfully smother undesirable, exaggerated
items, which at present seem to be getting such
wide-spread fame - fame of the wrong kind - for
Michigan, at the same time securing for her the
kind of publiity which would help her mightily.
All this, The Daily believes, would be best acconi-
plished by a news bureau conducted under Univer-
sity supervision.
MANY THANKS
This afternoon the cornerstone of the new Cle-
ments library will be laid. Although this is to be.
a beautiful building, - one of the most attractive
and perfectly executed pieces of architecture on the
campus, - beauty is perhaps its least valuable as-
set. The new library will house a collection of
precious books and documents whose value to the
University is far greater.
Approximately five thousand volumes, covering
all phases of American history up to the year i8o,
are included' in the collection. There are also many
manuscripts and documents of incalculable value to
the student of amerian history, - works which
few if any other libraries can boast.
Regent W. L. Clements, who is presenting this
collection to the University, is an authority "on
works of American history. His volumes have been
selected with great care and skill. They represent
twenty-five years of patient labor as well as iormid-
able expenditure. The Unitversity of Michigan may
consider herself indeed fortunate to be the recipient
of this gift from her public-spirited regent.

THE NEWS BUREAU'S JOB

n a formal interview published in another sec-
r of this edition, Prof. John L. Brumm, of the
artment of journalism, has outlined the system
>loyed by the present University Press service,
. has set forth, in connection therewith, his ar-
rents against the sensational display of undesir-
e college publicity which is in vogue in so many.
spaper offices. It is because Professor Brumm's
nments apparently have been directed at the plan
a pew Michigan News bureau that The Daily
.s called upon - to supplement his remarks.
'he Daily is in perfect accord with many of the
als expressed in the interview. 'It applauds Pro-
sor Brumm's statement that "popular publicity
cerning college occurrences is usually undesir-
e. It deals with the spectacular and otherwise
sational." Furthermore, The Daily concurs with
idea that "college publicity should exist only to
:rpret educational institutions to the public, in
light of the service they are rendering educa-
ally", though it seems desirable to broaden this
ement so as to include as educational such ex-
academic activities as sports and the like. At
same time, The Daily would take exception to
statement that "college publicity should be
.ted from the 'inside' point of view and not froth
'outside'
ollege publicity probably never can be treated
lusively from the "inside". Despite the fact
t we may send out "bi-weekly broadsides" to
rspapers throughout the country, containing
'ies of academic and truly educational interest,
professional editor, who is a business man after'
has to be reckoned with. The ideal that col-
s should be represented only through news of
cational value is all very good in itself, but it
s not take the practical newspaper mind into con-
ration. Editors will grab stories that help to
their papers; they will print university scandal
sensation if they can get it, and turn over the
rage academic -material to the ravages of the
e stove. No matter how strongly we may feel
college news should "interpret educational in-
ltions to the public, in the light of the service
r are rendering educationally", the fact remains
the average editor is not apt to accept an acad-.
: interpretation as suited to his needs.
he bulletins sent out by the University Press
ice are all right in their way, but they do not go
enough. The local field is well covered by cor-
ondents, who send out each day news which
think will "take" best with their editors and
reading public. The University Press service,
he other hand, supplies a small sheet of ultra-
