Sloan Takes Crusades
In Editorials To Task
Fditorial crusades came under discussion yesterday in a
statement made by Charlie Sloan, independent candidate for
editor of The Daily Tar Heel.
Stating his position on the subject of crusading, Sloan
railed to task a recent editorial concerning the matter.
"An editorial in' yesterday's Daily Tar Heel would have
a candidate for editor saying lie is opposed to crusades be
cause 'crusade is now a bad word. No statement could be
farther from the truth. I know, because I am that candidate,"
. "Editorial crusades by Daily Tar
Heel chiefs in the past have usual-
ly been quixotic blunders that
have set the student body against
the issue and cost the newspaper

"Rather than become involved in
a discussion of semantics. I have
chosen to disassociate myself from
the word 'crusade' to avoid con
juring up unpleasant pictures in
the minds of students.
'Therefore I am against 'cru-;
sades' but not against editorial
campaigns in defense, of freedom
and all the other ideals on which
our country was founded. An edi

these ideals slip by without com-
