In the course of one day, the
University News Service may
handle jobs ranging from handling
press relations with kings and
queens to answering a student's
question about automobile regula-
Its small but amazingly active
staff of twelve is the official organ
for reporting University news to
the people.
The history of the bureau goes
back before the turn of the century
when the Regents in' 1897 called
for some plan to spread informa-
tion about the institution to the
In its first stages, it functioned
only as an agency for publishing
a Michigan "News-Letter," but in
1930 it began to take on its present
functions by sending State news-
papers mimeographed news re-
Its program has continued to
expand widely. Immediately after
the second World War, the bureau
had a staff of only three.
Today, the News Service's staff
includes an editor, assistant editor,
four reporters, two photographers,
three secretaries and two part-time
"We're quite like a newspaper
office exce&twe don't publish a
paper," Cleland B. Wyllie, editor of
the News Service, said.
"Our philosophy is to try to

make as much information avail-
able to the public as possible."
The reporters are assigned Uni-
versity "beats" so that they may
be certain of finding news stories.
One man is stationed at the Col-
lege of Engineering and another at
the University Hospital.
Informs Campus
"We also serve as an agency to
help reporters from newspapers
and magazines who come on cam-
pus. We're continually in the mar-
ket for ideas that will appeal to
magazines." The News Service has
an extensive program to help
magazine people ferret out Uni-
versity stories they might use when
they come to campus.
Wyllie explained a person might
be on campus for a long time and
still barely know a part of the
things'which are going on.
"Just today one of the Detroit
newspapers called us up and asked
a question." The News Service
takes every effort to supply as
prompt an answer as possible.
Some of the bureau's other serv-
ice include supplying portrait
photographs of faculty members
to parties who request them, mak-
ing "news clips" for television dis-
tribution throughout the nation,
and informing students' hometown
newspapers when they are elected
to offices, serve on committees,
and become members of Greek let-
ter organizations.

shedding the most pounds.
Weighing In
Ten days ago Badt and Birn-
baum, dressed in shorts and yel-
low-and-green Taylor House shirts,
weighed in for the first time.
Badt'spoundage was then 226,
while Birnbaum clocked in at 222
According to rules, the winner
will be the one who loses the most
weight by March 24. At this date,
Birnbaum is leading, having lost
151/2 pounds, compared to Badt's
six pounds.
Meanwhile, the contestants keep
their team members happy by dis-
tributing their desserts at meal
times and withstanding the taunts
of their fellow house members.

Both Badt and Birnbaum are'
confident of winning-they have
a side bet that, when the contest
is over, the loser buys the winner
a steak dinner with all the trim-
"Will-power. Just will-power,"
is Badt's answer when the weaker
members of the house ask him how
he does it.
Birnbaum, who has lost the most
fat so far, works out and referees
at the Sports Bldg. to keep his
poundage on the decline.
As a result of the funds raised
by the contest, the Taylor Schol-
arship Committee has decided to
award two $50 scholarships this
year instead of on .
And, once a week, the scales in
South Quad's basement groan as
two weighty men climb aboard.
