Newspaper Production
Faces Radical Changes

Mechanical production of news-
papers is in for some sweeping
changes, and we will probably see
them within the next five years,
according to Philip T. Rich, pub-
lisher of the Midland Daily News.
Speaking before members of
the journalism school, Rich pre-
dicted that present expensive

tablished, along with broadened
old age pension and other social
security measures and a long-
range, government - supported
housing program.
And he said "the time has come
for Alaska and Hawaii to be ad-
mitted to the Union as states."
To his list of immediate pro-
posals the President added these:
1-Discrimination "based on
race, or creed, or color" must be
abolished. He will send Congress
a special message on the subject.
2-Our natural resources must
be further developed and "we must
vigorously defend our natural
wealth against those who would
misuse it for selfish gain."
3-Farmers, with a 1946 aver-
age income pf $779, should be en-
abled to approach the $1,288 av-
erage of non-farm workers and all
low incomes should be increased.
One fifth of our families, he said,
have incomes less than $850 a
4-Industry should invest at
least $50 billion in the next few
years to help increase our present
record production by one-third.
Firm action should be taken
against "the concentration of eco-
nomic power and other elements
of monopoly."
5-"Many thousands of dis-
placed persons, still living in
camps overseas, should be al-
lowed entry into the United
6-By tariff reduction and other
methods, including aid to Greece
and Turkey "in preserving their
integrity against foreign pres-
auips," we must wok k toward
"world peace based on principles
of freedom and justice and the
equality of all nations."
7-"A special program of as-
sistance to China, to provide ur-
gent relief needs and to speed
reconstruction, will be submitted,
to the Congress."

processes will be discarded in fa-
vor of direct typing and photog-
raphy. He cited the photoengrav-
ing process used by the Chicago
papers during the current typo-j
graphers strike as a successful at-
tempt at a new and cheaper!
printing process.
Men with Cameras
Reporter-photographers are an-
other novelty that will become the
usual, especially for small papers,
Rich said. "Few small papers can
afford full-time photographers,
but most of them can use reporter-
photographers," he explained.
With the present demand for
pictures in the papers, it is a good
idea for all reporters to carry
cameras and learn how to use
them, Rich added.
Radio Tit-in
Radio and newspapers are going
to work even more closely together
in the future, Rich continued. "In
many of the smaller towns I think
that radio and newspaper work
will be closely linked," he ex-
plained, commenting that "pro-
duction of newspapers by radio is
already a fact."
The most important thing is
that the newspaper business keep
on progressing, in mechanical,
business and editorial procedure,
Rich concluded.

Prof. Paul Niggli, eminent Smiss
scientist, will deliver the first of
two lectures on the earth sciences
at 4:00 p.m. today in Rm. 2054,

The lecture, entitled "The Min-
erals of the Swiss Alps and Their
Origin," is intended primarily for
mineralogy, geology and chemis-
try students.

"The Science of Snow and Ava-
lanches," will be held at 4:15 p.m.

Bryan To Give
Lecture, Film
Of Soviet Trip
Noted Photographer
To Be at Hill Tuesday
Julien Bryan, noted photog-
rapher of documented films, will
present "Russia Re-visited" at
8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hill Audi-
torium in an Oratorical Associa-
tion lecture.
Bryan has made nine trips to
Russia since 1930. photographing
the Russian people and country-
side. In his last trip, which was
made after the war, he made the
film to be presented here.
Unusual Film
Believed to be the first com-
plete motion picture in color on
the Soviet Union made by a for-
eigner, the film covers current
life in Russia with pictures of fac-
tories, thousing developments,
churches, collective farms, schools
and theatres.
Travelling as an unofficial ob-
server for UNRRA, Bryan was
permitted by the Russians to pho-
tograph almost all the categories
of Soviet life in which he was in-
terested. The film is uncensored,
and was not developed until his
return to America.
Comparisons Possible
Because of his man trips to
Russia, Bryan is one of the few
Americans able to view the Soviet
today and compare it to the Rus-
sia of five, ten or fifteen years
ago. He has appeared here five
times in lecture-film presenta-
tions, covering people of all parts
of the world.
Tickets for this lecture will be

Charging that nearly all uni-
versities of western civilization
inculcate a faith in analytical
materialism, Dr. John A. Cole-
man, in an interview yesterday;
offered two suggestions to coun-
teract this attitude.
This attitude is taught uncon-
sciously by professors, Dr. Cole-
man declared. "We must arouse
faculty and student Christians
to awareness and then change the
attitude of teaching methods so
that professors make clear what
the real basis of teaching of opin-
ions is when relevant to their
course- -
Spreading Christianity
Dr. Coleman is secretary of the
World Christian Federation with
headquarters at Geneva, Switzer-
land. He is visiting units of the
United Student Christian Coun-
cil, of which almost all inter-
guild groups are members, in or-
der to propagate the principles of
Christians in universities.
Deploring the fact that "success
means to be successful material-
ly," Dr. Coleman disparaged the
general belief that truth can be
discovered by analyzing things
and finding a materialistic ex-
planation for them.
Search for Faith
It is impossible for students not

to have faith, but the real prob-
lem is what that faith is to be,
Dr. Coleman asserted.
"The university is a reflection
of society rather than the leader,"
he said. "Universities have lost all
sense of direction and are merely
a pale reflection of tie fragmen-
tation of society."
Give Concert

Grade school students in Ann
Arbor and surrounding areas will

the Young People's Concert to be
