CHOATE NEWS TOPS SCHOOL PAPERS FOR CRIMSON CUP AWARD

1926 Board Gift for Three Cups Exceeds Original Expectations--Extension of Field of Competitors Possible

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Choate News, published weekly by the Choate, School of Wallingford, Connecticut, is, for the third successive time, winner of the annual school newspaper contest for the year 1927-28 conducted by the CRIMSON, it was announced by the judges last night. For the third time since the competition was initiated in 1927, a CRIMSON Cup will be presented to the paper.

The competition was started by means of contributions given by W. I. Nichols '26 and R. H. Field '26, presidents of the CRIMSON for 1926. The funds were originally intended to supply three cups, the last of which has just been won by the Choate, News, but a residue and the accumulated interest has left enough money to present a fourth cup. The 1926 editors have requested the competition to be continued another year and it is expected that a contest will get underway in the near future. Although the competition has been limited in the past to those school newspapers belonging to the School Newspaper Federation, it is probably that the fourth contest will be open to school papers anywhere in the United States. Definite information will be announced within a short time by R. A. Stout '29, president of the CRIMSON.

News Showed General Excellence

The Choate News was awarded the cup on account of its general excellence in the appearance of its makeup, the variety of its news stories, and the quality of its editorials. This paper has also won the contest for the past few years conducted by the schools in the Eastern Interscholastic Newspaper Association. The judges of the contest were V. O. Jones '28 and H. C. Bartlett, '28, presidents of the CRIMSON during 1927-28, and R. T. Sherman '28, editorial chairman of the CRIMSON the same year.

The Choate News has always been one of the leading papers in preparatory school journalism. Besides issuing a weekly which has set a high example for other schoolboy papers, the editors of the Choate News have always been leaders in the School Newspaper Federation.
