the more dignified .of its proteges. The university

terms are to be used, they must be used with dis-
Now that the Detroit Free Press has arranged to
establish a radiophone station of its own, which
move has caused the Deprtment of Commerce to
limit the sending hours of the familiar WWJ, -
the Detroit News' station, the News has btaken oc-
casion, in a long front-page editorial, to bemoan the
Free Press' intrusion and to assume an air of be-
nign martyrdom.
Says the sorrowing News: "The Detroit Free
Press decided to break in on The Detroit News
service and demanded of the government that it,
too, be allotted hours.......The Free Press
frankly stated in its advertising that it 'preferred
to wait until the experimental stage had been
passed'.before getting into it. That is, it preferred
to wait until the News had done all the pioneering
wbrk and had built up a public service which
brought instruction and pleasure to the people, be-
fore attempting to interfere .with it." And then,
"While the Detroit News joins with its radio
friends in deeply regretting this intrusion on the
now long established schedule," etc.
.The News has no particular reason to feel sorry
for 'itself. Despite the fact that it perhaps may
have been something of a pioneer in the use of the
radiophone for broadcasting purposes, it will, have
to learn that any field of competition, this one in-
cluded, is open to entries at any and all times.
Perhaps the Free Press refrained from estab-
lishing a radiophone station earlier because it pre-
ferred to spend its money. getting news and con-
tinuing its development as a - newspaper, rather
than in obtaining a lot of outside adtertisng by
air; perhaps it hasseen no real need for setting up
a radio service heretofore;perhaps any number of
other possibilities. At any trate, the News had best
accept the situation gracefully and forget that it i
a martyr to th cause of scientific advancement.
It does not own the air.,
The Wisconsin Cardinal last Sinday dubbed you'
"the wrecking crew from Ann Arbor". You well
deserve the title.'
Despite the fact that for several years the de-
mand for tennis courts on Ferry field has long ex-
ceeded the supply, the situation this year remains
unchanged. Players still Bock to the field when-
ever weather permits, and yet often spend entire
afternoons without getting any opportunity to use
the courts. The .side-lines are constantly filled
with students waiting for. their turns, while ther
late-comer seldom gets a chance to secure a place
even on the waiting list. Such conditions lead only
to lissatisfaction and grurmbling, as well as criti-
cism of the system which Cgermits such a state of
This year athletic officials have started work on'
but one new court, which it is expected will be
ready 'for use about May 21. This is a step in the
right directioh, 'but will not go very far toward al-
leviating the situation. Ferry field at present is
large enough for a sufficient number of courts to
accommodate all players vho now frequent the
grounds in vain hopes of getting in at least one
set during an afternoon.
The grumbling and dissatisfaction are no doubt
justifiable, for students are surely entitled to the
full privileges which Ferry field has to, or rather
should, offer. More courts, and attention to the
present ones needing repairs 'will do away with'
the critics and grumblers - and it is entirely with-..
in the power. of the Athletic association to bring
about this desired result.

ase of the analogy is sound. Deep in his
e senior is just as proud of his cane as the
oy is of his first moustache. Both signify
nent, the one that of a successful. college
n, the other that of ,supposed manhood.
here is one great difference which renders
lgy inadequate. The only reason that the
goy hesitates to show his moustache to the
public is because he fears the resulting
f jokes, sarcasms, and unbearable banter,
nevitably follows such a display. The hes-
nior, however, has no grounds for his ti-

(Chicago Daily Maroon)
Appropos of the statement made by
Dr. E. J. Goodspeed in the Tuesday
issue of The Daily Maroon, concern-
ing the measures that it is necessary
to take, to curb undesirable publicity~
pertaining to the . University, The
Daily Maroon advocates herein an
administrative step which, it would
seem;'from the experience of other
universities and colleges, should be
successful in this institution: the ap-
pointment of a publicity diretor who
will be a fully recognized member o
the administrative branch of the fac-
It has been the misfortune of this
unitersity, as of all others who are
located in or near a metropolis, to
suffer somewhat at the hands of mod-
ern journalism. Much publicity, that
as "news" is welcomed by the press,
and read eagerly by ithe'citizenso;
Chicago, proves detrimental to the,
best interests of the University. Had
tpere been provided by the Board of
Trustees an official who would handle
efficiently all publicity much of this
undesirable advertising would have
been avoided.
Everyeducational institution has
many publicity murasures. It adver-
tises, to a certain extent, the wares
that t has to offer. It must announce,
through the mist adequate medium,
the receipt of gifts and endowments,
the conferring of honors, the election
of instructors, and like incidents that
interest the public as wel as the uni-
versity. At the same time, student
correspondents are anxious to carry
to their downtown papers all sensa-
tional news of the campus, frequently
to the unquestioned detriment of the
Probably a majority of the 'institu-
tions of learning in the country em-
ploy a publicity director, who, as the
title implies, directs, and quite force-
fully all publicity that emanates from
the campus. We have seen that the
employment of such an agency has
proved beneficial where schools have
the same metropolitan publicity diff-
culties that are now confronting the
university. We therefore feel that
consideration should be given the pro-
position if the desire to curb the pres-
ent flux of undesirable publicity is as
animate as it has been manifested,
Practical experience is being ob-
tained by members of the class in edit-
ing of the journalism department by
visiting newspaper :plants near Ann
Arbor. Friday afternoon students
from this class went to Detroit and
were taken through the plant of the
Detroit :News, one of the best equip-
ped newspaper offices in the country.
Officials of the newspaper acted as;
guides and explained the workings of
the plant to the enthusiasts, and also
illustrated the different systems used.

In a Cincinnati murder case where the victim was
found in the river, limbs tied, shot in the head, and.
weighted down, the Commercial Tribune "makes the
following astounding statement:
"Coroner Stevens at once advanced the theory
that the young man had been murdered and his
body, weighted, tossed into the river 'by his slayer.
Coroner Stevens said he believed that if identifica-
tion of the body could be made the murder mys-
tery might be solved." .
