Students Seek
Old Exam File
At Ohio State
Claim It Would Eq leZ
All Students' Chances,
Bring Better Exams
After a recent survey conducted by
the Ohio State Lantern on a plan
for maintaining a University file of
past examinations, many department
heads at Ohio State have expressed
their approval of the plan and the
general belief is that it will be pos-
sible to introduce such a plan there,
according to the Ohio State Lantern,
campus newspaper.
There are various systems in use
at colleges all over the country, the
Lantern said. At Harvard the old
,examinations are on file in the li-
brary, while the book stores at the
University of Chicago sell the ex-
aminations of past years.
Prof. Clifford L. James, one of the
advocates of the .plan at Ohio State,
said that it would end the present
discrimination between affiliated
students and those who are indepen-
dent. He said that at present many
fraternities maintain quite complete
iles on a variety of subjects much to
,the benefit of the members, a prac-
tice of which many professors are not
Professor James said secondly, that
the maintenance of such a file would
be a stimulus to the departments to
formulate their exams more care-
fully, and thus a higher type of ex-
amination would be introduced.
According to the plan under con-
sideration at Ohio State, the pro-
fessor would mail a mimeographed
copy to the library where it would be
kept on file from quarter to quarter.
Professor James stressed the fact
that many colleges all over the coun-
try were using the system, and some
department heads at Ohio -State
maintained files for their particular
courses, the Lantern said.
Michigan fraternities are not un-
like those mentioned by Professor
James, for many of them maintain
files. Michigan's women's dormi-
tories are also collectors of old exam-f
inations as well as the sororities.
Seek Loan Of Cars
For Centennial Fete
Residents of the city are asked to
volunteer the use of their cars at
whatever times they may be avail-
able for the benefit. of the visitors
to the University centennial, the
committee on transportation an-
nounced yesterday..
It was pointed out by the commit-
tee that while many people will drive
their own automobiles "here, many
others will come by train or bus and
will be without means of transporta-
tion except for taxis or city busses.
Herbert P. Wagner, chief accoun-
tant of the University, who is chair-
man of the transportation commit-
tee, stated that he thought the cabs
and busses will be taxed beyond their
"Courtesy" stickers will be given
to automobile owners who are will-
ing to cooperate. Mr. Wagner said
that the cars may either operate on
assignment from the committee or
merely pick up persons who happen
to be going their way.

Mihiga 1 Journalist Startin
Its Tenth Year Of Publication

With a circulation of 2,500 each
issue, the Michigan Journalist, iab-.
oratory paper edited and issued by
the students of the Department of
Journalism under the direction of
Prof. Wesley H. Maurer, is starting its
tenth year of publication this semes-
ter. The Detroit News will cooperate
with the department by publihhing
one of this semester's eight issues.
The Journalist will oe issued once
each week for the rest of this term
by approximately 150 students in six
journalism classes. A different board
of four student editors will head the
staff each week.
Represents $1,500 Gift
The printing of the Journalist is
done by a different newspaper for,
each of the weekly issues. This serv-
ice represents an annual gift to the
University of $1.500 on the part of
these state papers, Professor Maurer
Besides the Detroit News, the
Birmingham Eccentric, edited and
published by George Agrerill; and the
Royal Oak Tribune, published by
Floyd Miller, will aid in this year's
publishing for the first time. Others
again cooperating are the Owosso
Argus Press, published by J. E. Camp-
bellbell; The Adrian Telegram, pub-
lished by Stuart H. Perry, JS Gray's
Monroe Evening News; Harold A.
Fitzgerald's Pontiac Daily Press; the
Ann Arbor News, under the direc-,
tion of C. H. McKinley; and the
Ypsilanti Press, published by George
C. Handy.
Edited For Practice
The paper, written and edited by
the six journalism classes for the ex-
perimental practice available, con-
ttains four to six pages. The fact
that each of these papers varies in
their typographical styles adds to the

disciplines of the students editors,
Professor Mauer pointed out.
Professor Mauer, who has been
faculty editor for the Journalist dur-
ing the 10 years of its existance, ex-
p-ained that the paper has no edi-
torial policy.
"The students take full responsi-
bility for their own articles through
the medium of by-lines," he added.
Since the paper is a laboratory proj-
ect, the news policy, he said, is ex-
perimental. The faculty insists upon
accuracy, authenticity, and thorough-
ness in the preparations of reports.
For nine years, the reporters have
annually studied Ann Arbor's delin-
