The Daily News
Marks Century
Of Publication
Development Traced From
Early Days To Erection
Of New Building
Tracing its origin back to the days
when Michigan was a territory, The
Ann Arbor Daily News yesterday cele-
brated its one-hundredth birthday
with a 136-page newspaper, made up
of nine individual supplements.
The outside supplement titled the
"achievement" section devoted its 12
pages to articles about the new build-
ing housing The Daily News on Huron
' and Division Streets. Other stories
introduced the staff, and told of the
paper's development since 1835 when
it was founded under the name of the
Michigan Argus.
Since then it has been published
under various names, but in unbroken
succession. Originally published as
a weekly and as an organ of the Dem-
ocratic party --there was no Repub-
lican party then- it is now one of
the state's leading daily newspapers.
In 1900 the Argus was leased by the
Ann Arbor Printing Company and
combined with the Washtenaw Times,
a daily. It was not until 1928 that it
became known as The Daily News,
owned by the Booth Newspaper Pub-
lishing Company.
Besides the general news section,
other supplements in yesterday's cen-
tennial edition were devoted to sports,
activities, commerce, industry, society,
transportation and the University.
The "University" supplement of 12
pages besides containing many stories
concerning the University and campus
activities, offered numerous pictures
of various buildings on the campus
as well as photographs of the seven
Presidents of the University since its
inception more than a hundred years
Titled "New Building" a 12-page
supplement told of every phase of The
Daily News' new home into which it
has just recently moved. The new
building is built of an even, smooth
texture with carborundum stone. The
ornamental plaques of cast aluminum,
placed upon the black art granite
spandrels between the windows, are
distinctive and in keeping with the
modern character of the architecture.
The plaques represent figures in bas
relief symbolical of phases of activ-
ities and culture dealt with by the
newspaper. There are 22 of these
panels running around most cf the
building, representing history, j us-
............. tice, science, printing, drama, lit-
erature, sports and photography.
The building is described archi-
tecturally as modern American. The
treatment of the exterior which is
of the same order as that of the Em-
pire. State Building in New York has
a double motif -that of beauty and
Dr. Townsend
Hits At Old Age
Pension Inquiry
Followers Applaud Move;
Financial Motive Denied
By Leader
WASHINGTON, MaY 19. - - ()
Dr. F. E. Townsend today struck out
at the administration as the "hostile
force" behind the Congressional in-
quiry into his Old Age Pension move-
ment and denied assertions he was

acting from selfish financial motives.
Testifying in a packed hearing
room, with men and women standing
in the aisles, the elderly pension leader
told a special House investigating
committee that his pension program
"needs millions and we are going
to get millions."
Townsend supporters in the audi-
ence applauded when the California
doctor said his followers "feel the
same way I do about, the two old
parties" and that a Townsend third
party would be formed "as soon as the
opportunity presents itself, probably
after the next election."
He called the administration a
"hostile force" and asserted the com-
mittee's attitude was "unfriendly" as
he defended a recent appeal in the
Townsend weekly for a "defense fund"
to be placed at his disposal.
The appeal, signed by the Townsend
Board of Directors, intimated the
investigating committee planned to
impound T o w n s e n d organization
Chairman Bell (Dem., Mo.), of the
investigating committee denied such
a plan and Townsend under persistent
questioning conceded he was aware
the committee had no power to im-
pound funds.
Representative Hoffman (Rep.,
Mich.), insisted Townsend was "sail-
ing under false colors' in condemning
the Democratic and Republican par-
ties and at the same time asking
his followers to support candidates
of those parties who are favorable to
hiqnonsinn movement.

500 camshafts can be inspected
every hour by an automatic
machine which has been designed
and built by the Ford Motor
Company. It is the only one of
its kind. It has a gaging accuracy
of one ten-thousandth of an inch.
It gages Ford camshafts at 25
points. Any dimension not within
the specified limits causes elec-
trical and mechanical devices to
reject the camshaft as it leaves
the machine.
There are ten inspection sta-
tions. The carnshafts are placed
in registered position in carriers
mounted on an endless linked
conveyor and carried into the
machine. At each station the
conveyor stops momentarily. Au-
tomatic centers engage the ends
of the camshafts and hold them
rigidly. Then 25 floating gage

heads lower automatically, mea-
sure the shafts, then rise. As the
conveyor moves the shafts to the
next station, other mechanism
rotates and indexes them for the
next set of gage heads.
The gage heads contain hard-
alloy-tipped measuring plungers
which are linked to amplifying
levers. Variations in shaft sizes,
beyond set limits, close a set of
contact points which operate two
solenoids. One sets the rejection
mechanism; the other raises a
marking plunger which puts a
daub of copper sulphate solution
on the shaft where the dimension
is over or under size.
When shafts come out of
machine they are automatically
passed or rejected. All told,


are 54 inspections on every
V- 8 camshaft.

PARENTS with growing children
naturally want them to have,
whenever practical, the same al
vantages that their companions
have. Few advantages inean so
much, and cost so little, as a tele-
phone in the house.
The boy or girl whose home
lacks a telephone thereby loses
one important way of forming
friendships. In this age, when
most invitations are sent by tele-
phone, such a boy or girl is often
left "out of things"-cut off from
many opportunities for harmless

ress. It reduces the risk of fire
ar*l theft; it safeguards health
and property. In emergencies it
is a swift, dependable ally. It takes
