NIGHT EDITOR-JAMES INGLIS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1931,
T H E appearance of yesterday morning's
DAILY led several people to protest against
the "sensationalism" of thejissue. The fact that
three banners were used, something which ha
not occurred since the student riot at the time
of the Wisconsin basketball game three years
ago, was taken as an indication of "tabloidism."
The editors of The Daily wish to state at this
time that they never have, and never will, permit
the paper to be,-guilty of sensationalism. The
Daily has the bet interests of the University at
heart, but does not believe that such interests can
be fostered by suppression of facts. The fact that
three excellent news stories all broke at the same
time, namely the Buildings and Grounds story,
the taxicab story, and the post-season football
game story, necessitated an adequate presenta-
tion of the news. The Daily will continue to
print news and facts of interest to students.

AN ATTACK on "exorbitant taxicab rates" ha
been launched by the Michigan Daily.

... If such conditions exist something is wrong
with the taxicab situation in Ann Arbor, generally
speaking. We believe some companies and some
"free lances" are trying to play fair with the stu
