Has Been Published
58 Years by Students
The Michigan Daily, now in its
58th year of continuous publica-
tion as the student newspaper of
the University of Michigan, has
had a history of continual growth
and progress.
The first Daily was a four-col-
umn, 12-inch deep paper, pub-
lished daily excepting Mondays
1890. Since then it has been pub-
lished independently by students
on Sept. 30, 1890. Since then, it
has been published daily except-
ing Mondays and vacation pe-
riods. Today's "Daily" has eight
columns and a 19-inch depth, and
is directed by the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications.
Self Sufficient
Since 1900, The Michigan Daily
has been under the sponsorship
of the University, but has sus-
tained itself and its employes en-
tirely by its own earnings. The
Student Publications Building
was erected in 1931 on funds pro-
vided by The Daily.
The Daily is one of the few full
size college newspapers in the
country today. A member of the
Associated Press, The Daily also
receives the teletype service of
that organization with complete
world, national and state news
Sports news is also reported by
the Associated Press and local
sports events are covered by the
sports staff of The Daily.
Editorial Page
The editorial page gives the
members of The Daily staff a
chance to air their views on the
topics of the day. The syndicated
columns of Edgar Ansel Mowrer,
the Alsop brothers, Samuel Graf-
ton, the Barnaby cartoon and the
cartoons of Bill Mauldin are also
carried on the editorial page. An-
other feature is the "Letters to
the Editor" column. The Daily
prints every letter under 300
words, in good taste, addressed
to it.
The Daily is published entirely
by students except for a few com-
posing room workers. Any eligible
second semester freshman or up-
perclassman may work on The
Daily Staffs
The largest "Daily" staff is the
editorial staff which puts out the
paper, gathers news, edits Asso-
ciated Press news and puts out
the editorial page. The sports
staff and the women's staff cover
the types of news indicated by
their titles. The business staff
handles the advertising, circula-
tion and finances of The Daily.
The Daily has been the starting
point for many noted journalists.
Among the former members of
The Daily staff who have become
famous in the field of journalism
are Edgar Ansel Mowrer, whose
nationally syndicated column~ now
appears in The Daily; Clinton B.
Conger, chief of the United Press
in Berlin and William H. Stone-
man, who has reported world
events from almost every news
capital in the world.
Members of the staff of The
Daily often serve as Ann Arbor
correspondents for the Detroit
newspapers and the wire services.
Forestry School Will
Hold Wildlife Seminar
Management of wildlife resour-
ces of the Great Lakes region will

be the topic of a Wildlife Manage-
ment Seminar to be given in the
forestry school this semester.
Plans for the seminar include
discussions by outside authorities
of such topics as waterfowl and
big game management.

Dawson said.
New Sections
New sections include Willow Vil-
lage, a record of Michigan sports,
salon section on campus buildings
and a satire section, Dawson said.
All 20.500 students will be pho-
tographed for the 1948 Ensian in
either formal or candid pictures,
Dawson is hoping.
"We want to capture the feeling
and spirit of the campus this
year," Dawson commented. "We
don't want to just print pages of
unrelated pictures."
Containing 425 pages, the En-
sian will cover all schools of the
University, according to Dawson.
The price of the 1948 Ensian is
$5 with $1 down.
Down-payments may be made
at Ensian booths which will be
set up at the Michigan League,
the Michigan Union, Law Quad,
Engineering Arch and the Willow
Village bus-stop, Dawson said.
Ensian Staff
Dawson served as Ensian sports
editor in 1941 and handled all copy
and publicity in 1942 before en-
tering the Army.
Others on the Ensian editorial
staff are: Rozann Radliff, Associ-
ate Editor, who will handle the
technical aspects of production;
Jean Kodish, Associate Editor, of-
fice management and tryout rela-
tions; Muriel Green, Schools and
Colleges; Elaine Willitts, Features;
Virginia Beebes, Organizations;
Mary Ann Brice, House Groups;
Everett Ellin, Sports; Nancy Con-

NEW YORK - (P) - Joseph A.
Margolies reads about 25 books a'
week, but he buys five or six times
that many different titles, some-
times only one copy and sometimes
several thousand.
He reads hastily, maybe skims
is a better word, but he has to
buy hastily, too. As vice president
of Brentano's, which with 26 book-
stores throughout the country, is
a leading purveyor of books to the
public and carries perhaps 30,000
different titles, he meets salesmen
every Wednesday and Thursday,
one every 15 minutes.
"It's like a dentist," he says.
Packaged Commodity
Margolies is not buying litera-
ture, though maybe he would like
to. He is buying a packaged com-
modity which he must resell to the
public, and he is obliged to place
a lot of faith in the publisher's
It's easy to make guesses about
popular fiction, Margolies says.
The problems appear in specialized{

books. How many people who
come into the store at Fifth Ave-
nue and 47th Street, for instance,
will be hunting for a book on ski-
ing, or Schuschnigg, or labor un-
ions, or 18th century painting, or
Gettysburg? If in his opinion it's
one person, he buys one book, if
it's 50, he bets on 50.
The problem is further compli-
cated by the fact that he buys
several months in advance, and a
bcok that looks good in the winter
may spoil in warm weather and
vice versa.
Some Differences
On the whole he buys the same
things for the five New York stores
as for the nine in Washington, the
two each in Philadelphia, Hart-
ford, Los Angeles and Honolulu
and single stores in other cities.
But there are differences.
If a Philadelphian writes a book,
the sale in his home town is apt
to be much larger than in other
places. Then there are volumes
on strictly regional topics, like the
caves in New England, or Indian
mounds in the midwest, which
should sell better in those areas.
Otherwise, the reading pattern,
like the movie and dress patterns,
is pretty much standardized across
the country. The more literate a
city, of course, the more books it
will buy, and in this respect Mar-
golies places Washington way
ahead of New York, as the ratio
of nine to five stores indicates.
A century ago the Japanese
government, which had discour-
aged the study of the Dutch lan-
guage, permitted only physicians
to learn it. According to the En-
cyclopedia Britannica, the result
was that everyone who wished to
learn Dutch professed to be a
medical student and 3,000 pupils
are said to have passed through
the medical school at Osaka in 24
