Two hundred of the prominent
journalists of the state gather to-
gether today in Ann Arbor for the
purpose of discussing common prob-
lems in newspaper work. The meet-
ing is the sixth since the inception of
the yearly conference and is of par-
ticular significance in that the dele-
gates will be addressed by three of
the outstanding figures of present day
journalistic endeavor.
Each suceeding year brings the or-
ganization of discussion groups of one
sort or another. In a few weeks the
embryo journalists of the state, the
high school editors and business
managers, will meet here to discuss
their problems, according to their an-
nual custom. In the spring the execu-
tive heads of the student newspapers
of Big Ten universities will confer
concerning their difficulties. Journal-
ism appears to have become a matter
for periodical discussion by beginners,
experimentalists, and finished crafts-
rhere are those who sneer at all
such attempts to improve journalistic
standards and to promote an exchange
of ideas. These same persons point a
finger of scorn at schools of journal-
ism, at anything which smacks of
theory. In so doing they are thinking
particularly of those who fail to find
practical application for their theories,
who present themselves in a news-
paper office equipped with a certifi-
cate from a recognized school of
journalism and expect to be made
some sort of an editor immediately.
Very naturally the journalists of the
old school are soured by such
obstreperous persons on all attempts
at creating an educated newspaper-
man. They fail to see any value in
studying newspapers and their in-
fluences, and in attending conferences
with their compatriots in the pro-
There is, however, another group
among the numerous editors through-
out the nation who believe firmly in

the facilities for improving journal-!
istic standards and are anxious that
the college-bred man have some part
in this. The University Press club,
convening here today, is representa-
tive of the best tendencies of the
profession in this part of the country.
Much of a constructive nature can be
gained from the conference, Just as
the would-be newspaper man can be
aided considerably by professors of
journalism, providing always he has
the other requisites of a good news-
paper man.
The annual meeting of the club thus
will be productive of results in the
improvement of state journalism, but
it is principally of moment in that it

Power to change the House Rules


by which undergraduate women are
controlled lies solely with the Wo-
men's League. Early last spring, rules
which had been in operation for a
number of years were made more
le'nient, and it was dissatisfaction with
these changes and the consciousness
that Michigan women were being crit-
icized which caused students them-
selves to request a revision.
A committee of three members
from the Board of Directors of the
Women's League was appointed. This.
group met and worked out changes
in the rules and presented its report
to the Board, where it was discussed,'
changed slightly, accepted, and then
sent to the Board of Representatives
for modification, approval or rejection.
The latter Board, consisting of the
presidents of all the organized housesn
on the campus, discussed the changes
for nearly two hours, decided that
