Daily Is Campus Newspaper
Published Entirely by Students
This is the spot where we tell you about the Michigan Daily, your cam-
pu4 newspaper.
The Daily enters its fifty-sixth year of continuous publication this fall.
it was first conceived by a group of independent men in 1890 who dubbed
it the "U of M Daily" and published it from a little print shop downtown.
Soon The Daily was moved to the Ann Arbor Press Building and the name

Mny Student
Groups Belong
"To promote world youth unity and
cooperation," the Student Organiza-
tion for International Cooperation
was founded in May of this year.
"Unite, adopt a foreign university
and make contacts with other youth
groups throughout the world" were
the words spoken by delegates of the
World Youth Council who visited the
8OIC Organized Here
And in answer to these words a
group of students representing 19
campus organizations formed SOIC.
Initial project of the organization
is to choose a university destroyed or
'damaged by the war, and raise funds
to send supplies for rehabilitation.
The university will be chosen in
the fall at a campus election and
fhrough a series of programs includ-
hng a dance, a carnival, a movie
ight and a campus show, the neces-
sary funds will be raised to carrycout
the project.
SOIC will cooperate with the
World Student Service Fund in its
annual drive this fall.
An organization of organizations,
SOIC now has delegates from 20
campus groups on its council, the
governing body. Every student on
campus may join one or more of the
committees which carry out the
plans of the organization.
Work accomplished during the
summer session included a mass rally,
a dance, and revision of the consti-
Faculty, Students Spoke
Held to hear a report from Jack
Gore who attended the Washington
Youth Conference in June, the rally
attracted more than 200 persons.
Students and faculty members rep-
representing various universities
throughout the world, also addressed
the group. The conference was com-
posed of representatives of American
youth groups who met to formulate
an American platform to take to the
International Youth Conference to
be held this fall in London.
The "Adoption Dance" netted more
than $100 to start the fund on its
way. Highlighting the entertainment
for the evening were native dances
by performers from Brazil, China,
Russia and the Philippine Islands.
The revised constitution is now
ready for ratification in the fall byI
member organizations.

was changed to The Michigan Daily,
In 1932, the Student Publications
Building was opened. With plant
and equipment valued at a quarter
of a million dollars, The Daily has
the most complete set-up in thef
country for publishing a campus
Run Entirely by Students
The Daily is run entirely by stu-l
dents. Any student may work on the
paper after establishing his eligi-
bility in the first semester of his
freshman year. Promotions are made
on the basis of merit and junior and
senior positions are paid.
The Board in Control of Student
Publications made up of faculty,
alumni and student representatives,
supervises publication of The Daily
and the Michiganensian. The Board
makes senior appointments, but it
does not attempt to censor Daily
stories before they are printed.
A direct wire from the Associated
Press furnishes state, national and
international news for The Daily,
which is published every day during
the week except Monday. Complete
coverage of campus activities is hainl
dfled by students on the editorial
star. The Daily also features syn-
dicated columns by Drew Pearson
and Samuel Grafton, as well as
"Barnaby," a syndicated comic strip.
It is the official means of the publi =
cation of the University's Daily Of-
ficial Bulletin.
Has Student Business Staff
The business staff has complete
charge of Daily finances. Members
of this staff service all accounts,
draw up advertising dummies, keep
the books and handle circulation.
The Daily sports staff gives com-
plete coverage of all sports events
and the women's staff has charge of
covering all campus women's activ-
ities. Freshmen may try out for any
of these staffs in the second semester.
The Daily has consistently placed
very high in the yearly ratings of
the Associated Press and has taken
top honors for a number of years
in a row - winning the Pacemaker
award. It has also won the highest
awards from Sigma Delta Chi, na-
tional journalism fraternity.
On V-E day last May and on the
day that the Allied victory over Jap-
an was announced, The Daily had
extras on the streets within an hour
after the news first came over the
Associated Press wire.
'U' Broadcasts Weekly

vice presents 15 programs every week,

ucational programs.
