leaving the proposed law just as
it had entered committee.
It was a 7-3 vote this time, how

have changed the membership
of the non-council portion of the

budget deficit brought on by

The cut, which reduces the
"daily" newspaper to four days
a week, is effective immediately.
Robbins said the cut was ap
proved at a meeting of the Board
last Friday in Graham Memorial.
It marks the second time within
a two-month period that the
financial body has been forced to
cut the frequency of publication
of the official student newspaper.
The printing cut will realize
some $1,500 savings, but a por
tion of this cut will be offset by
a small loss in advertising.
Several other money saving
measures are being considered by
the Board, since an additional
$1,500 savings will have to be ef
fected or another $1,500 in in
come added, according to Rob
"It is with sincere regret that
the 'meat' of The Daily Tar Heel
was cut by the Publications
Board. I believe I speak for every
member of the Board when I
say this. We certainly have no de
sire to see a college newspaper
that has been taking steady
strides forward suddenly go into
a tailspin in the middle of a year.
"In the fact of the current fi
nancial crisis, however, we were
left without an alternative in this
matter. We could have dipped into
our rapidly-shrinking surplus to
stave off the cut for a short while,
but the axe had to fall sooner or
later and we think the time for
action is now.
"We have prepared a budget for
next year that will allow us to
resume publication of The Daily

assure you The Daily Tar Heel
will resume its place among the
