It is an ethics-bound tradition of
newspaperdom that a publication
present to its reading public,
whether it be large in scope or
small, not only the news of the day
but also determined, aggressive,
and formative opinion on such por-
tions of that news that affect its
readin body in interest and in the
various phases of their activity.




DECEMBER 8, 1928

the actual facts of a case and to
present them with a clean, upright,
and honestly aggressive policy.
The Daily News should feel the
challenge of its community, it
should fell proud of its power to
mold public opinion, it should glad-
ly aid the citizens of Ann Arbor in
solving a problem. Instead, inso-
far as the issue of the day is con-
corned, it chooses to hide in the
oblivion of evasion.

A football season is past and the
combined concert of the band and
glee club is approaching. Although
the band has succeeded in surviv-
ing one crisis already this fall, there
is still room for improvement in the
rules governing its organization.
Until some system of University
credit is made available to band
members, the quality and the merit
of the work done by that organiza-
tion is bound to be below its natu-
ral possibilities.
The case for some such credit
award is easily presented. In order
to insure full attendance at the
many practices sessions which must
necessarily be held before the band
can appear at its best either as a
marching or as a musical unit,
some power to enforce regular at-
tendance at these meetings must
be placed in the hands of the or-
ganization's directors. The ability
to give or withhold such .credit
would be an effectual grant of this
From anotherstandpoint, the
offering of an hour of University
credit each semester to band mem-
bers would s.erve as an incentive t
able student musicians who do no
feel able to spend the time unre-
warded that band work requires.
The benefits of these factors are
easy to recognize and present
themselves not as the result of any
radical departure but as sufficient
cause to justify the University's fo
lowing a program which has al-
ready proved, of sufficient worth to
merit its establishment and reten-
tion in other universities and col-
Of the almost numberlessi oppor-
tunities for physical and mental
improvement offered to every stu-
dent, Michigan's latest and most
complete plant, the Intramural
building, is being utilized pro-
pprtionally much less than it justly
Fromsapproximate figures com-
piled by the nItramural depart-
ment, only 400 are using the build-
ing daily. Of this number 65 are
trying out for the wrestling and
boxing teams, 50 for varsity swim-
mers, 35 are out for fencing, and 50
faculty men are members of the
faculty swimming class. Thus there
remain only about 200 students
from the campus at large who are
