WHAT THE DAILY IS
The Michigan Daily is the public
conscience of the University of
Michigan campus. It is the oracle
of Michigan spirit. It is the score-
keeper, announcer, referee, and
booster of the Men of Yost, Lund-
gren, and Farrell, and for the most
and best of what is said, thought,
and done by students, faculty, and
alumni. It is a training school for
good journalism. Its telegraph ser-
vice gives the school of the inland
seas a universal perspective. The
Michigan Daily is a sound business
proposition. Faculty and students
co-operate in its management.
The University is a vast and
wonderful being, and the student
paper is its multitudinous voice.
Why You Should Subscribe
The normal student can handle
well only two or three activities.
If you sign up for The Daily you
are assured of a manageable, worth-
while membership into every pub-
lic campus organization, because
every morning it gives you the
master key to the whole situation.
You can probably read through
most of the paper in an hour, and
during that time you are privileged
to thunder over the ten-yard line
with Maulie ; you can see in a
flash the subject of your next con-
versation with your acquaintances
who are mentioned in the columns;
you read.the essence of that special
lecture which you couldn't get
around to attend; you get the de-
tails of all the coming games,
shows, recitals, meetings, or lec-
tures. By being a member of The
Michigan Daily family, you cease
to be a mere flourish in a Greek al-
phabetic symbol or a mere jumble
of words in the Students' Direc-
tory; you become a Michigan man,
alive in all important university
life, at least fairly well posted on
the conditions in other universi-
ties, the great war, the presidential
campaigi, and the border trouble.
Thus you become worth more to
yourself, to Michigan, and to citi-
zenship. After signing up for your-
self send a subscription to vour
home high school and to your folks.
They are watching you.
