Daily Editorial Staff Members
; FindPaper's Tabloid Ancestor

Fublication in the Bulletin is constructive notice to all members of the University.
Copy received at the office of the Summer Session until 3:30; 11:00 am Saturday
until 3:30; 11:00 a.m. on Saturday..

Sensational Fire, Crime,
And Race Track Stories
Featured Throughout
Conservative members of the Daily
editorial staff have been shocked to
learn of the existence of a skeleton
in their journalistic closet. A speci-
men of that horrible American phen-
omenon, the tabloid newspaper; was
discovered recently in the Student
Publication's Building.
The tabloid, named the Michigan
Daily Murder, is dated April 1, 1933,
and is rumored to have been distrib-
uted with a legitimate edition of the
Daily. Its first and last pages are
covered with photographs of ancient
vintage, while the six inside pages
are besprinkled with tintypes of chor-
us girls, horses, saloons and foaming
glasses of beer.
In bold type two inches high the
single headline on page one pro-
claims, "U Hall Razed In Fire; $1,37
Loss." Other headlines are "Hundreds
Dead In Local Cemeteries" and "La-
tonia Noses Out Tia Juana In Fourth."
The motto of the paper is emblazoned
as "Are We Too Good To Print What
God Almighty\ Has Allowed To Hap-
The story concerning the University
Hall fire begins, "The Daily Murder's
man hunt for the pyromaniac who
started the blaze late tomorrow morn-
ing continued unabated. Fourteen old
desks, a quantity of lumber, a can
of rubber cement and a pair of over-
shoes were destroyed."
Crime news in the manner of all
tabloids is prominently featured. An-
nouncing that "Ax Murderer Kills
Seven, With Ax," the Daily Murder
tells how, "The body of the late Mrs.
Nelson Kwitchpnk (nee Zanderhooft)
of Farmington, Mich., was found late
last night by R. F. D. carrier, Harper
Finkle, at the intersection of Ecorse
and Telegraph roads protruding from
an empty mail box in an abandoned
and slightly damaged condition. The
two rear fenders and the front axle
had been completely torn away b3
the force of the impact."
Then comes the item, "Ann Arbor
police were shadowing three phone

calls received this morning, one giv-
ing the description of a dark, veiled
man who was seen last night walking
in the direction of Squelch Park lead-
ing two armadilloes and a drome-
dary on a light chain, and the other
requesting extra patrolmen in Pre-
cinct 503 where the Jewish New Year
is being celebrated."
Entitled "Aunt Alice's Advice" the
woman's page is identified by "High

dormitories into the Huron River af-
ter a brief struggle in which 17 coeds
and a house niatron. were reported to
be injured while attempting to cap-

A picture of bathing beauties cap-
tioned "Nabbed In Sin Den" is fol-
lowed by "Three live, pedigreed quail
escaped from an old rabbit hutch on
the premises of a German 257 lecture
yesterday afternoon in a frantic at-
tempt to regain their liberty. When
last seen they were flying in the direc-
tion of the Delta Gamma house where
an Olde Time Southerne Barbecue
Dinnere was served last evening in
honor of 1$unnybank Grey Dam, sired
by Flying Sailor out of Lady Legend."
Theradvertisements of the Daily
Murder appearto, have some faint
kinship with ! those of the modern
Daily. A firm of purifiers,Silverwo-
'man Sisters, introduces a new ser-
vice, Beerclean, "which will removej
the spots from before your eyes."
Other advertisers are the Leg Hall-
room, Slacker's Hookstores and Bal-
kin-Belcher Grog Company.
