Labor Questions Discussed In
11ll Auditorium
Before an audience which packed
the main floor of Hill auditorium last
night, Kalamazoo Central high school
debating team won the ninth annual
state championship contest of the
Michigan state high school debating
league. Successfully defending the
negative side of the question-"Re-
solved: That the Proposed Child La-
bor Amendment to the National Con-
stitution Should be Adopted by the
United States," the Kalamazoo teamI
was awarded the decision by unani-
mous vote of the judges. The affirma-
tive was supported by Hudson high
The teams were composed of three
members, each of whom was permit-
ted ten minutes for constructive- ar-
gument and five for rebuttal. Repre-
senting Kalamazoo was Dudley Schol-
ton, John Gorr, and Harry Lee Ends-
ley. The personnel of the Hudson
team was Wilbur Reisenring, Robert
Baldwin, and Robert Tripp.j
Winner i'Make Three Points
Kalamazoo debaters maintained1
their position chiefly on three points:
first, that the adoption of the pro-
posed amendment for federal child
labor control would mean an exces-
sive overburdening of our government,
already unable to cope with existing
legislation efficiently; second, that it
would mean a similar overburdening
of the courts; and third, that laws en-
forced under this amendment might

ed this morning at five places on the
l campus where the Student Christian
association will station collectors to

'The committee hopes to raise more
than $1,500 which is the quota set for

of the budget being contributed by
business men of Ann Arbor.
Tags will be sold at the Union, En-
gineering arch, the Library, the State

impossible. The boys are chosen from
the community centers of Detroit, Ann

Board Offers $100 Awards For Stu-
dents Maintaining "B" Grade
While On Publications
By action of the Board in Control
of Student Publications yesterday af-
ternoon the policy of Chimes, campus
literary magazine, was altered to the
extent that next year it will be a dis-
tinct publication from The Daily, to]
be distributed separately, and will
probably be considerably changed in
make-up and size. A resolution was
also adopted at yesterday's meeting
providing for an award of $100 to
every student working on publications
whose scholastic record is "B" grade
or better, and who has satisfied other
requirements, in place of the former
system of three awards of $250, $150,
and $100 to students on publications1
maintaining the highest scholastict
In altering the policy of Chimes, -
the board hopes to increase its literaryt
aspect by enlarging the publication.t
Present plans also call for the pub- l
lishing of the magazine on a bettert
grade of paper than at, present. It
will be distinct from The Daily in
every respect and will be distributed
every Saturday night. The subscrip-
tion rate for next year will be deter-
mined at a conference of the business
managers of the board, Chimes, and
The Daily. The salaries of the man-
aging editor and business manager
will be the same as those received by
the executives of the Michiganensian
and the Gargoyle.
Appoint Chimes Executives
The board appointed Theodore
lornberger, '27, managing editor of
Chimes for next year, and William
Mullin, '27, business manager.
In order to obtain one of the awards
under the new system adopted by thet
board, any stident who has worked
on a campus publication for four se-
mesters, and has maintained a schol-
astic average of 'B' grade or better,
will receive the sum of $100 uponE
making application to the board next
fall. By changing the system, the
board has provided an opportunity for
more students with high averages to
'receive remuneration for their rec-
ords. The board's resolution follows:j
Resolved: That the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications shall, for
the current year, offer cash prizes of
$100 each for scholarship attainment 1
according to the following rules: t
Rules For Prizes
1. Every student who has done
substantial and satisfactory work on
any student publication, or publica-
tions, for four or more semesters
shall be eligible for one of these
prizes. The summer session will be
rated as one-half a semester.
2. Every such student who has at-
tained an average scholarship record
of 'B' or better during the period
above specified shall receive one of
these prizes.
3. Every student who believes him-
self entitled to a scholarship prize
shall file an application for the same
at the board office in the Press build-
ing after the opening of the Universi-
ty in the fall and before November 1,
and the prizes shall be awarded and
paid before the Christmas holidays.
4. No student shall be an appli-
cant for any scholarship more than
5. The scholarship standing of each
applicant shall be estimated in ac-

cordance with the system of gradingI
currentry employed in the variousC
schools and colleges of the Universi-]
ty unless and until another is adoptedj
by the board.
The board named Paul Arnold, '27E,
as business manager of The Summer
Daily. The managing editor will be
appointed by the board today.
According to a resolution adopted
by the board, upper staff appointmentsC
of all publications must be announced
during the week following the appoint-
ment of managing editors and busi-
ness managers, in view of the discon-
tinuance of the annual publications
banquet which was effected at Satur-
day's meeting. All appointments this
year must accordingly be made before
next Saturday.

Nothing thus far has developed
