Markham Tells of Importance
Of Reporter, Editor Relations
By CATHARINE RAMBEAU
Dr. James W. Markham, ollen-
ing this year's series of Univer-
sity lectures in Journalism, spoke
yesterday on "The Reporter and
Preceding the talk, he received
the 1955 Kappa Tau Alpha Re-
search Award- for his book, "Bo-
vard of the St. Louis Post-Dis-
patch," from Prof. Wesley H.
Maurer, chairman of the Depart-
Inent of Journalism and national
president of KTA, the honorary
Markham, head of the Depart-
ment of News at Pennsylvania
State University, stressed the ne-
cessity of absolute confidence be-
tween reporters and editors, stat-
ing that "no reporter can realize
his full potential without the
backing of his editor." He cited
the late O. K. Bovard as one of
the great editors of recent times.
"Once a reporter had proven him-
self to Bovard," Markham said,
"he could rely on the editor's sup-
port at all times."
Although charges have been lev-
eled at newsmen for surrendering
to the offers of press agents and
interest groups, Bovard would
have nothing to do with them. "His
reporters were not even allowed
to accept season tickets to con-
certs. One of his maxims was
that business success would fol-
low editorial success."
Again referring to Bovard,
Markham mentioned the editor's
demand for local news coverage
as opposed to the growing use of
wire services, of his dislike for
standardization at the expense of
individuality. "Bovard wanted his
news first-hand" continued Mark-
ham. "If he could, he would have
covered the world with his report-
Markham declared that many
editors underestimate the reader's
intelligence. "A good editor," he
added, "is less interested in the
amount of news that gets to the
reader tha nin how much news
that same reader understands."
Concluding, Markham stressed
the need for more editors with the
foresight and honesty which typi-
fied O. K. Bovard.
Apparently our national hero,
Davy Crockett, had other talents
besides pioneering, fighting, hunt-
ing, and patching of cracked bells.
Seems that our Davy was an
oracle as well.
A copy of a speech, discovered
in the University's Transportation
Library, disclosed that in 1830,
Davy delivered an address in the
House of Representatives which
was a startling prognosis of things
Several members of the House
were' trying to pass a bill propos-
ing the construction of a road
from Buffalo to New Orleans via
This roused our hero's wrath,
for not only had the perpetrators
of the bill miscalculated the length
of the road, they had overlooked
the fact that a part of it would
have to be built on swampy ground,
thereby raising the cost consider-
And as anyone could see, Davy
may have said, the road would
run parallel to the Mississippi
River for five or six hundred miles.
Davy told the Committee of the
Whole of the House that there
was only one reason to justify
himself if he voted for the bill as
"I discover a determination to
squander th~e public funds in some
way and, therefore, I should strive
to 'come in. for the snacks.'"
He added that "because of the
high duties resulting from the ex-
penditure, I would not be surpris-
ed if we should finally be obliged
to resort to a system of direct
taxation. This will be a tough
morsel for the people in my part
of the country to swallow."
You needn't have worried about
the road, Davy. It was never built.
But why, oh why, did you ever
have to mention those direct

University alumni donated near-

ni Fund during its second annual
Although the idea of "annual

ni, this year's contributions exceed
those of last year by 40 per cent
and the number of contributors
rose from 6,652 to 8,738, a 30 per

Campaigns Are Successes
The two campaigns are consid-
ered successes, but participation
is still much below that in simi-
lar, long-established programs of
other colleges and universities. Op-
timism for greater participation,
however, has grown from the
marked increase in the second
campaign although the psycho-
logical inducement of charter

is one play with two endings.
A mystery written by Ann Rand,
author of ".The Fountainhead," the
production will open the Ann Ar-
bor Civic Theater's seasin at 8 p.

The action of the play is cen-

Whether it is an ominous "Guilty"

pared for a smooth conclusion.
Directed by Ted Heusel, "Night
of January Sixteenth" will run
through Saturday, Oct. 15. Tick-
ets for the productiin are on sale
at the Lydia Mendelsohn boxoffice.
A two-semester series of lec-
ture-discussions on various re-
ligions has begun at Lane Hall.
Rev. Henry O. Yoder, pastor of
the Lutheran Student Center is
directing the series.
The meetings are designed to
present to the campus basic be-
liefs of various religions and de-
Every organized religious group
on campus will be represented.
Meetings will be held at 4:15 p.m.
Every Wednesday in the Lane Hall
To Lecture Here
India's population problem and
policy will be the subject of a so-
ciology department lecture today.
Prof. S. Chandrasekhar, econo-
mist from the University of Baro-
da, India, will speak on the sub-
ject in the Rackham Amphitthea-
ter at 4:15 p.m.
About one-third of the undesig-
nated contributions to the 1954-55
campaign has been allocated for
student aid and scholarships, and
slightly less than one-fourth of
the money will go toward faculty
awards and aid.
Allocations are as follows:
$22,800 for Michigan Alumni
Fund out-of-state freshman tui-
$15,000 for student aid,
$15,000 for faculty research
$5,000 for recognition of distinc-
tive faculty teaching,
$30,000 towards construction of
the new University Press Build-
$20,000 for improving and ex-
panding Development Council ser-
vices to the alumni.
The balance of the $153,000 was
given for designated purposes.
Much of this money was especial-
ly allocated by the donor for par-
ticular scholarships or medical re-
Similar to Regents' Scholarships
for in-state students, the Alumni
Fund scholarships provide four
years' tuition of $1,080 apiece for
20 freshmen not Michigan resi-
Eighty-three applicants for the
first 15 scholarships were spon-
sored by alumni groups through-
out the world. Applications came
from Formosa, Hawaii, India and
Puerto Rico, as well as the United
States. Selection of award win-
ners was handled by the Univer-
sity Committee on Scholarships.
Faculty to Be Awarded
A new allocation this year, the
first awards for distinctive fac-
ulty teaching will be given in June.
Just how many awards will be
granted out of the $5,000 alloca-
tion, or in what schools or col-
leges of the University they will
be given has not been decided.
Money was donated towards
construction of the University
Press building as a permanent re-
minder of the accimplishment of
the Alumni Fund. Last year the
Fund provided $35,000 toward the
purchase of the Stellfeld Collec-
tion of Musicology .from Europe.
