FINE A NEWSPAPER as The Michigan Daily undoubtedly is, one some-
times wishes it would reveal more of the fascinating details which are
so unaccountably omitted from its news stories.
In last Wednesday's paper there was the statement that, "Elliott
Lawrence, 21-year-ld newcomer to the top-flight dance band world,
has been chosen by student demand to play for the Homecoming
Dance." The story then hit the high spots of Elliott's rise to fame, but
there was no further mention of the student uproar which resulted in
his choice for the Homecoming Dance.
S0 RARE is any expression of the wishes of this student body that I feel
The Daily should have devoted more space to the phenomenon. How
many students were involved in the demonstration? And how did they
force the Varsity Committee to comply with their wishes?
Perhaps there was a parade under President Ruthven's windows;
possibly there was a bonfire, and speeches by the latest aspirants to the
Student Legislature or a Union vice-presidency; maybe a session of
the Legislature was interrupted with threats of armed violence from
the impassioned followers of Elliott Lawrence
MORE PEACEABLE means may have been adopted, like terribly clever
remarks on the blackboard in Angell Hall Smoker, floods of letters to
The Daily, or blackmail of the Varsity Committee.
Whatever form this outburst of student opinion took should certainly
have been revealed to The Darily's avid readers. Revolutionary as the idea
may seem, I think it almost as worthy of publication as the half-page of
scathing criticism of President Truman appearing in the same issue, and so
much kinder.
