Asserting that editing of the new
Tar an Feathers has been conducted
strictly according to the mandate of
the Student Legislature, Editor Gene
Witten yesterday denied allegations
that he had told his staff to write ma
terial like that which appeared in the
former Buccaneer and that he had
been "the only censor" of the maga
zine. Witten's statement was in answer
to a Daily Tar Heel editorial column
by Martha Clampitt, in which she
charged that Witten had circumvent
ed the regulations banded him by the
(The legislature instructed him to
submit all copy to his editorial board
of five members and gain their , ap
proval on material appearing in the
publication. Each member possesses
one vote and Witten two. '
Other Editors Support Witten.
The editor declared that the instruc
tions had been carried out. This con
tention was supported by G. B. Lamm,
photography editor, and : Jak Arm
strong, feature editor. They said the
entire board heard all copy read and
passed judgment on it.
Witten at first offered only this an
swer: "In keeping with the policy of Tar
an r eatners, l am not iree to answer
any questions or make any state
ments concerning the magazine with
out the approval of my five editors."
However, supported by his two
editorial assistants, he reversed this
statement and went ahead with a com
plete explanation of his stand.
Miss - Clampitt misinterpreted him,
Witten declared, when he once re
marked: "It looks like I'm the only
censor around here," meaning that he,
rather than the editorial board, was
applying the censorial pencil most
frequently. The column quoted Witten
thisway: "I'm the only censor around
As to the charge that- he "started
off by telling his staff to write the
same copy, et cetera, as usual; that the
magazine would be the same except
for the name, Witten denied that he
had made any such statement. He
added, however, that someone be de
clined to name the person had told
staff members this.
Last year's Buccaneer editor Bill
Stauber indirectly entered the con
troversy when a letter from him to
the Daily Tab Heel arrived yester
day praising the Buccaneer's succes
sor. Said Stauber:
"Congratulations on the new maga
zine, 'Tar an' Feathers.' Carolina has
really got something. The layout is
swell, and the material is above par.
It's a credit to both the school and the
editor. Full credit is especially due
