Journalism Students' First
Paper Appears This Morning


Featuring the University Health
Service, The Michigan Journalist, the
new weekly paper publish by the stu-
dents of journalism of the University,
will make its appearance on the cam-
pus this morning. Interviews, feature
stories; and editorials dealing with
this main subject will be included in
the first issue.
The paper, which is a four page
edition, is the same size as a regular
newspaper, and due to the fact that
there is no advertising, contains as
much news matter. The cost of print-
ing the paper was donated by the Port
Huron Times-Herald. Sixty-five dif-
ferent items are included in the first
The purpose of the paper is to pro-
vide a laboratory for the students in
the curricula of journalism. It aims
to champion the rights of the stu-
dents. Each story and editorial is
signed with the initials of the writer,
who assumes full responsibility for
Ihis article.
Bearing the slogan "Truth is In-
vincible," The Michigan Journalist
hopes to provide students and faculty
with the true facts in cases where
these facts are demanded. "The stu-
dents who have been editing this pa-
per have felt that there is a need for
this kind of a publication on the cam-
pus," says the leading editorial. The

Meeting Will Be Held In Assembly
Hall at 7:15 O'clock
In a second attempt to obtain a
quorum of Union members to vote
upon the proposed amendment to the
constitution of the Union, a meeting
willi be held at 7:15 o'cock tonight
in the main assembly hall. As it is
necessary for at least 600 members,
or a quorum, to be present at this
meeting in order that a vote may be
taken upon the question, the Union
urges all men on the campus who
can possibly attend the meeting to
db so.
The amendment it is proposed to
add to the constitution is in regard to
the method of nominating men to run
for Union offices. At present a nom-
inating committee, appointed by the
president, makes all nominations of
candidates and in addition any Union
member who secured a petition signed
by 200 members asking that his name
be placed on the ballots is eligible to
run for any office.
The amendment would change this
ystem so that gall candidates, whether
nominated by the special nominating
committee or by petition, must have
their candidacy approved by the board
of directors of the Union. It is be-
lieved by Union officials that this will
tend to eliminate a large part of the
politics which is now present in the
elections for Union offices.
It is also aimed to make it possible
for men who have done considerable
committee and other work for the
Union to be given the preference over
other candidates who have not done
any service at all for the organiza-
The board of directors, to whom it
is proposed to give the final authority
In the matter,, is coinposed of the
president of the Union, the recording
secretary, ex-officio, the vice-presI-
dents chosen from the five colleges
in the University, three members of
the faculty, each of whom is a mem-
her of the Union, five alumni members
of the Union appointed by the alumni
association, the financial secretary of
the Union, ex officio, and the general
secretary of the alumni association of
the University, ex officio.
At the meeting which was held last
Wednesday evening, a quorum was not
present, although 500 members turned
out. A number of speeches were made
by students, some for the amendment
and some against it, but it was im-
possible to take a vote. If 600 men
attended the meeting tonight, accord-
ing to the provision of the constitu-
tion in this regard, two-thirds major-
ity favoring the proposed change is
sufficient to make the amendment ef-
