Nearly three hundred and sixty-five days out of
every year, envelopes of printed matter, relative
to stocks, markets, and the like, are received at the
combined office of The Daily and The Wolverine.
Apparently, every time a new quotation is ;eceived by
the government it is printed and sent out to num-
berless newspapers throughout the country. The
students piblications here seldom or never use this
printed matter, yet it continues to come through the.
mails, notwithstanding past suggestions that the serve
'ice be discontinued. It is really more a nuisance than
a convenience.
No doubt this same matter is sent regularly to
thousands of newspapers, big and little, important
and unknown; no doubt'many of them use the mate-
rial they receive, but just as certainly countless oth-
ers do not. Yet the stuff continues to arrive.
The amount of printed matter the United States
government printing office turns out annually must
be almost inconceivable and we are ,sometimes in-
clined to wonder just how much of it is really need-
ed and how much is waste. Past times, not so very
long past either, have been marked by a shortage of
print paper. What is more, paper, ink, machinery,
and labor cost money, especially when the produc-
tion is as great as that at the capitol.
Probably it will be argued that, under the sys-
tems used by all modern big business, such a de-
crease as might, with care, be effected by the gov-
ernment printing office, would bring about a saving
comparatively so tiny that the ultimate result would
be hardly worth the effort. Possibly this is true.
Yet still our minds, unaccustomed to the vast scale
on which government business is conducted, contin-
ue to revolve upon the possible uses to which money,
saved through the exercise of a little more care,
might be put, and its possible advantage to the coun-
try.
Fight .fans in Chicago will be unable to view the
pictures of the Dempsey-Carpentier fight, accord-
ing to a ruling of ;Chief of Police Fitzmorris. The
chief has the right idea. Why should one be allowed
to witness for 35 cents what another paid $50 to see?
Love balms and heart repairs use up an aston-
ishing amount of space in the modern newspaper,
and, incidentally, demand the payment of incon-
ceivable sums of good hard cash. Nevertheless, we
wonder what the courts would do, were it not for
the unrequited-love fad.
