Paper Is Selected
3rd Straight Year
The Michigan Daily was again
awarded "All-American Honor Rat-
ing," and for the third successive
year was designated as a "Pacemak-
er" among college publications by the
Associated Collegiate Press in its an-
nual critical service for university
and college newspapers, Fred L. Kil-
dow, director announced yesterday.
The Daily was one of seven news-
papers out of the total of 355 sub-
mitted to receive the "Pacemaker"
award, called the "summa cum
laude" rating by the organization,
and was one of three in the division
of daily college newspapers.
Other Papers Listed
The other papers in the "Pace-
maker" rank for 1937 are Akron
Buchtelite, University of Akron;
Daily Cardinal, University of Wis-
consin; Echo Weekly, Milwaukee
State Teachers College; Junior Col-
legian, Los Angeles Junior College;
Minnesota Daily, University of Min-
nesota; and Red and Black, Univer-
sity of Georgia.
Out of a possible 1,000 points The
Daily received 885 from the judges.
All the papers submitted are judged
upon the bases of news values and
sources; news writing and editing;
headlines, typography and make-up;
and department pages and special
features. The Daily scored highest
in news values and sources, receiving
230 out of a possible 250 points. For
typography The Daily received the
maximum number of possible points
and the make-up of the front page
was judged "excellent,"
Editorials, Sport Praised
The editorial page and the sports
department were both rated "excel-
lent" by the judges and the other
special features and departments re-
ceived the maximum points possible.
This year marked the 17th time
that the Associated Collegiate Press,
a division of the National Scholastic
Press Association, has conducted its
critical review. The scorebook of the
organization states definitely that the
competition is not a contest, except
in the sense that a teacher in a class
room conducts a contest with every
student striving for the best record

In this discussion the evolution of
microscopic instruments is described.
Design Trends Discussed
Body design tendencies are dis-
cussed by William S. Taylor, '39E, in
"Economy by Streamlining" in which
he shows that all indications point
toward a vital concentration of
scientific principles in future work
on this problem.
Courses open in the handling of

Homer Martin, president of the Unit-

day that his union has begun nego-
tiations with the National Labor Re-
lations Board regarding alleged griev-
ances of Ford workers under the
Wagner labor law.
Arriving from Detroit by plane for
a special meeting of his executive
council, Martin at first announced
that charges of "discrimination and
intimidation" already had been filed
against Ford.

Later, however, he said union of-
ficials had been conferring in Detroit
for several days with Frank Bowen,
regional labor board director, but
that he did not know whether formal
charges had been presented.
"We have plenty of evidence
against Ford," the union chief de-
clared, adding that plans for organ-
izing Ford workers already had been'
drawn. .
