VOTE TO CONTINUE DAILY TAR HEEL NEXT TUESDAY VOTE TO CONTINUE DAILY TAR HEEL NEXT TUESDAY w a t i VOLUME XXXVIII STIMTMPER . HERE COMPLETES STEADY GROWTH Only Few More Issues Remain Before Thirty-Ninth Year of Progress Will Have Begun. (By George Wilson) Endorsing the continuance of the Tar Heel as a daily newspa per, the student activities com mittee means to enable the pa per vto maintain the steady prog res that, has attended it since its inception in 1893. This deci sion, besides assuring the faith of the campus Jn the Tar -Heel, is welcomed also because of the fact there will probably be no step backward in thehistory of the paper. The Tar Heel was organized in February, 1893, as a weekly pa per, sponsored by the Athletic Association. At that time there were two existing . publications on the campus, the Carolina Magazine and the year-book, the Hellenian. The magazine had enjoyed an existence of almost fifty years, and it welcomed the arrival of a new publication that could handle material and things of interest that a literary maga zine could not handle. In 'fact, it had strongly urged the organi zation of a newspaper, and in 1891 had extended its hand to the unsuccessful Chapel Hillian, a paper, whose existence was very- short. The Athletic Association, see ing the need for a student news paper and thinking of the bene-, -fits it could derive f rom .if .In ih - way of publicity, decided to start a paper, which ii did by electing the members of the staff and ap pointing the editor and mana ger. Scarcely a year later, another newspaper appeared on the cam pus, the White and Blue. Its arrival was very noisy as it bit terly denounced the Tar Heel as impartial, favoring fraternities, nrJ pvpti went so far as to de- mand the withdrawal of frater nities from the Hill. The Tar . Heel, "on the other hand, ignored the allegations of its rival, and welcomed another paper on the Hill. A year later the White and Blue had been combined with the Tar Heel. The weekly Tar Heel, under the direction of the Athletic As sociation, existed without radi al ontrp until 1909. Prior to UU VUHUfiV this time, it was realized that there: was more news on -the campus than could be accommo dated by a weekly paper, but no attempt to change from a week ly had been made. In 1909 a semi-weekly was tried and ex isted until 1911, when financial conditions forced the Athletic Association to go back to a weekly This is to be regretted as it is the only step backward the Tar Heel has made in its his tory. TT From 1911 to 1920, the Uni versity was under a great period of expansion and it was often talked 'of making the Tar Heel a semi-weekly, but the disastrous experience of 1909 prevailed. However, in 1920 the student body voted for; a semi-weekly f Continued on last page) Graduate Students All graduate students who expect to get a degree at the end of ths quarier musi cc Mrs. Graves in the Graduate office at once and file with her an application card for a degree.

Carrington Smith, manager of the Carolina theatre, entertained the editor, managing editor, business man ager, the city editors, the mem bers of the editorial board, the sports editor and his assistants and some of the outstanding members of the reportorial staff of the Daily Tar Heel at a special advance showing of the picture, "Young Man of Manhattan," whitfh is to be shown at the reg ular hours today. . It frequently happens that be cause a motion picture deals with newspaper men and women and press activities, many patrons are scared off, classing the pic ture as "just another damned news story' Those- of the Tar Heel staff who saw the preview of "Young Man of Manhattan" last night can attest to the fact that the picture has plenty of life, a catching, well-developed plot, good acting, and a connected se quence of action and interest which combine to form one of the best pictures trf the year. The. story asrun in the Sat urday Evening Post a few months ago proved one of the most popular novels of the year.

Their fall is sud den and complete and the inci dent of the ring and bridesmaids follows shortly. Toby has abil ity as a writer and draws a crood salary on a metropolitan newspaper but a lot of money STUDENT COUNCIL REPORTS CASES Twelve Cases Are Tried -and Sentenced; Freshmen Punished For Dormitory Disturbances.
