Increase Publications Fee
Campus publications this year have the opportunity to serve
a large, critical audience in the approximately 7,000 people that
compose the student body of the University.
To meet the large demand that will exist for good publications
here, the editors and staffs of the Daily Tar Heel, Carolina
Magazine, and Yackety Yack have been and are at work daily
planning ways and means of providing students with the best
finished product possible in their respective fields.
But to publish a good newspaper, magazine, and annual in
this day and age, one must spend money. Jhe three campus
publications are all staring point blank at rising costs in prac
tically every branch of the publishing field. '
Each publication has its own budget drawn up in conjunction
with the Publications Board, but all of these budgets are incapa
ble of meeting the many costs involved in production.
For example, the Yackety Yack's original budget was based
on an approximate 5,300 students way below the real figure
today. The Yack editor desires to take individual photos of
each student and will need at least 400 pages in the annual.
The Carolina Magazine has potentialities of realizing great
heights this year in the Carolina literary field. Printing and en
graving costs have increased considerably. A multi-paged maga
zine of sufficient thickness to make it worth while will cost
It would be great if we could produce the campus publica
tions without spending money on them but everything costs
money today, especially any item of value.
All of the students pay a $p.90 publications fee when they
register. This fee is divided among the threes. It is apparent
that this sum will not be sufficient to enable the three publica-
tions to make the improvements they want. More pictures, fea
tures, supplements, all require more money.
The fees can be raised this year. To begin with, the money
comes from the government for the veterans and they don't
have to pay the fee out of their own pockets. The small in
crease that would mean so much totally in the way of improved
publications would be acceptable to the individual students
all of whom are interested in knowing that they will be getting
something good for their money. -
In this case that something can be a daily paper; a monthly
magazine, and a worthy yearbook all bigger and better than
Open Door Policy
In all the hubbub that has been created around here the last
few days we have heard very little comment on the-policy of
the University to admit qualified students as long as it is hu
manly possible to provide the education.
To double the population of any community is sure to bring
situations that are difficult and trying. -The housing situation is
bad. Eating facilities are over taxed. Classroom space has its
limit. All these things are known now and were known before.
Every student should have been well aware of the situation be
fore he arrived. Every student is here of his own free will.
Some of the schools in this area have closed their admissions
office. They have set a limit to the number of students and are
making no efforts to do any more. Yet here in Chapel Hill the
University is making every effort to provide for the students.
It can't settle plumber's strikes, it can't build dormitories over
night, nor can it find extra classrooms, but it is giving each of
ns the chance at an education 'if we can find the way to exist.
The University hasn't quit and it doesn't intend to until the
job is done.
When things get tough and the line seems endless just be
thankful that you're in a school that didn't shut its doors in your
