College Heights Herald Western Kentucky State College VOLUME 27-NUMBER 10-Z-245 BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1951 Herald Takes Top Award 2nd Straight Year The College Heights Herald has, for the fourth time, been accorded the highest recognition possible for school publication. In a nation wide contest conducted by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association at Columbia University, the Herald received Medalist rating in competition with newspapers and magazines from other schools throughout the country. Less than ten per cent of the papers earning a first class rating are awarded the rank of Medalist. A SIMILAR AWARD was given the Herald last year by Columbia University and in 1942 and 1944 by the Associated Collegiate Press sponsored by the University of Missouri. On accomplishment of the latest rating, Vernon Stone, senior English major from Woodburn, becomes the first Herald editor to guide the paper to two national awards.

Sam Steger was editor in 1942, and Muriel Dann in 1944. Other awards have been won by the Herald since it became affiliated with national college press organizations. In 1943, 1944, 1945, and 1949, the paper was rated First Class by Columbia university. Mack Sisk and Dorthie, Hall were co-editors in 1943. Marjorie Rickman was editor in 1945, and Charles Wheeler in 1949.

The Herald has consistently received first place rating since becoming a member of the Columbia Association. Only once has it dropped from this superior position, when it was given a second place rating. THE CSPA JUDGING committee, composed of leading educators in field of journalism, grade the college papers on a comparative basis. Make-up, content, advertising, writing, and editing are the main points considered by the judges, and point values are given for quality in each of these. Rating points have been established after a study of what constitutes the typical student newspaper.

Eight hundred and fifty points of a possible 1000 give a paper a first class rating. Second place award is earned by 750 points, and third place rating is given papers making 650 points. The scoring sheet for this year has not yet been released by the CSPA. Other press associations with which the Herald is affiliated are the Kentucky Press Association, the National Editorial Association, and the National Advertising Service, Inc.

for the championship. WESTERN HAS NEVER defeated a Bradley basketball team. The two schools have met four times, with Bradley winning all four. Bradley's victories were 39-32 in 1937, 32-24 in 1938, 39-38 in 1939, and 95-86 in the quarterfinals of the National Invitational Tournament in 1949. Western lost only once to Bradley here, twice at Peoria, and once at Madison Square Garden.

Bradley's prestige dropped a few points last week, when a mediocre Oregon State team startled the Braves by 30 points, 75-45, in the finals of the Hawiian Invitational Tournament. Bradley will be counting heavily on all-American Gene Melchiorre, who is the teams' spark plug and leading scorer. Western will counter with big Rip Gish, the high scoring Hilltopper forward and Jack Turner, who was recently taken off the ailing list. The twelve man squad also includes Gene Rhodes, Eddie Diddle, Frank Wallheiser, Dick White, Bill Scott, Monie Beard, Don McGuire, Bob McGuire, and Maurice Hale. WESTERN GOES into the meet with a record of 19 wins and 9 losses.

Bradley has a record of 30 wins and 5 losses, and also won the Sugar Bowl Championship. Bradley, currently ranked 6th in the nation, is considered by many as the best in the tourney, but if the Toppers play the brand of ball they are capable of playing, Bradley will have to be at their best to beat them. Assistant coach Hornback stated, "We aren't going up just for the ride, and if we play a good brand of ball, we can win." Rifle Team To Meet Eastern The Army ROTC rifle team and the Air ROTC rifle team will compete in a round robin tournament here tomorrow for the purpose of selecting a rifle team to engage Eastern's rifle team there, March 31. The team will be made up of ten participants who qualify as the best ten shots. Eastern's rifle team will come to Western for a return match on April 7.

The team that collects the greatest total score for the two meets wins possession of a handsome trophy for one year. Western has held possession of this trophy for the past two years. TEA Group Meeting Here This Afternoon The members of the delegate assembly of the K. E. A.
