From Them in 1903
Today's issue of The Daily marks
the first issue of the publication to
be printed in the new $180,000
building on Maynard street. For
years to come this building, erected
and equipped from profits made by
The Daily, Gargoyle, and Michigan-
ensian, will be the home of Michi-
ga's student publications.
Free fro= censorship and direct-
ed by undergraduates during the
regular' school year, the publications
have played an important part in
the intellectual development of stu-
dents, as is proved by the hundreds
of former publication men who now
hold responsible positions in the
publihing field.
The Daily, founded in 1890 by a
group of non--fraternity students,
was run for years as a profit-mak-
ing organization for those w h o
worked on it, Later, however, it
was .purchased by the University,
and a Board in Control consisting
of faculty men and students was
placed over the editors as a guid-
ing force. At all times, however, the
editors have been free from rigid
censorship. Proof of the farsighted-
ness of the board and its business
manager, Prof. Edson R. Sunder-
land, of the Law school, is shown
today by the new building.
New Editing Plan.
This aimmer for the first time
The Daily is not being edited by
students. Again in the fall, how-
ever, undergraduates will take over
the publication. In order to give
the summer students a better paper
and as a financial move, Dean Ed-
ward H. Kraus and the Board in
Control ruled this year to employ
three graduate journalists to direct
the work.'
Previous to the founding of The
Daily, two weeklies were printed on
the campus-The Chronicle and the
Michigan Argonaut. The Chronicle
began publication in 1867 and the
Michigan Argonaut in 1882. These
papers represented two studnt fac-
Was Politically Maage.
Campus politics in those days took
the form of a contest between the
non-fraternity and the fraternity
men. As a result, a fraternity man
would be picked as managing editor
and business manager for one se-
mester, and non-fraternity men for
the following semester. In 1889-90
a dispute arose among the editors
of the Chronicle as to which group
should be in control during the sec-
and semester. The quarrel ended in
the independents leaving the staff.
They further urged others of their
group to boycott the paper.
A movement soon began among
the independents to establish a
paper of their own, with the result
that the U, of M. Independent asso-
ciation was formed in the spring of
1890. The constitution of this new
organization- provided for the pub-
lishing of a weekly paper, and the
election of a board of directors to
edit it. Herbert B. Shoemaker, '91,
was chosen as the first managing
editor, and l4. R. Hammond, '91,
was selected as the first business
manager. Before the close of the
s p r i n g session of 1890, enough
pledges to subscribe to the paper

were obtained to make the direc-
tors feel confident that it would be
a success, and a contract was made
with Samuel R. Beakes, (later a
Congressman), who published the
Aruges, to print the paper.
Changed to Daily.
In the meantime, the Chronicle
and the Michigan Argonaut com-
bined and decided to publish a tri-
weekly paper. Hammond, realizing
that this would mean failure to the
independent paper, decided that the
only hope would be to bring out a
daily. He corresponded with the
other members of the board, and
they finally agreed to share in the
responsibility of publishing a daily
paper. Before school opened in the
fall, Hammond had secured suffici-
ent contracts f o r advertisements
from local and Detroit merchants to
insure its success.
The U. of lI. Independent was
the name intended for the paper,
but it was later decided to give it a
non-partisan name, so it was called
the U. of M. Daily. Later the name
was changed to The Michigan Daily.

According to the statement is-

exemptions will be made among
Summer Session groups:
"1. Those who in the academic
year were engaged in professional
pursuits as, for example, teachers,
lawyers, physicians, dentists, nurses.
"2. Those attending the Public
Health institutes.

carried, but the privilege should not
be considered as affording a person-
al use of cars for such purposes as
driving to the campus, making so-

holders of permits are likewise fo--
bidden to use their cars for social
purposes such as driving to dances,
picnics, and the like.
"It is permissible, however, for a
young man who possesses a permit

"Students who intend to apply for

to call at Room 2, University hall,
without delay and are cautioned not
to use their cars until they have ob-
tained their permit cards and have
attached student tags to their state

The tax action on real estate will
in no way apply to personal prop-

estate taxation was made primarily
because it was believed the frater-
ities rec being oveo taxed, for they
paid taef on per cent of the
cash value of their property, as
against the tax on 68 per cent paid
by business property owners and 10

Effects of the reduced taxation

ven-Each summer brings to
thi pleasant city and to the
campusi? of our University a
group which we are always
happy to greet. Some have been
here during the year or have
been here in the past; other
faces are new to us. All, how-
ever, represent purpose, ambi-
tion, and energy to continue
education by devoting the 'sum-
mer months to University worl.
The officers of the .University
and the faculty of the Summer
Session appreciate the spirit
which they have for years found
characteristic of the summer
group. On their behalf I ex-
tend, -with great pleasure, a cor-
dial welcome to the students of
1932 and express their hope
that every facility offered by
the University will be used.
Edward H. Kraus, Dean of
the Summer Session-It is a
great pleasure to extend a most
cordial welcome to the students
of the Summer Session of 1932.
Summer instruction has b e e n
given at the University of Mich-
. igan for nearly four decades,
and the comprehensive pro-
grams of courses and extra-cur-
ricula' activities that are offer-
ed to you are the result of this
long experience. It is our hope
that the time you spend at the
University this suummer may
be both profitable and enjoy-
last summer. Enrollment figures
from the biology camp have not ye'
been received.
Definite information concernini
enrollment will appear in tomor-
row's issue of The Daily. Also thi

opened, giving the summer students
full accounts of the Democratic na-
tional convention and all news o
political, economic and social inter
Readers will also find the Daily
