I wish to take this opportunity
to pass along to you a few of the
more important points in my cur
rent campaign for the position of
editor of The Daily Tar Heel.
(1) Journalism is a profession.
re- i nnrl a ioomalist is bound bv ethics
just as an attorney or a physician.
The present editor has, in my
opinion, violated these ethics
through his conduct of the Tar
Heel editorial page and should be
"disbarred" by the recall election
(2) The United States Supreme
Court has set back race relations
at least a generation. I believe that
if the present cry of extreme in
tegrationists is heeded the result
will be disasterous. If elected, i j
plan to express the view in editori
als of a moderate segregationist.
(3) Through economy measures
and expanded coverage a much
at the , better Tar Heel can be produced.
I believe that my six years of pro
fessional experience in this field
will aid me in returning our pa
per to the position of the foremost
college daily in the United States.
(4) Coach Tatum was hired to
do a job. He is doing this job ad
mirably well. If we believe in the

(5) A staff training program

(6) Before entering an editorial
election each prospective candi
date should be required to pass a
general examination on all phases
of newspaper production. This test,
under the supervision of the Pub
lications Board, would assure the'
presence of qualified candidates
(7) Editorial page columnists
should voice a wide range of opin
ions and not merely "parrot" the
editor's point of view.

paign Monday with submission of
a letter signed by a cross-section
who favor the

Following is a reprint of the let
ter, signed by the cross-section cf
UNC students, who urged the elec-

that this is one of the most import-

have faced in many years, and w
'ope that you will read this letter
before you vote today.
"What is at stake in this elec
ion is nothing less than a vindica
ion of the idea that students are
apable of responsible self-govern
ment. Under the Carolina student
constitution, the only way to re
olace an irresponsible Editor is to
recall him. If students are unwill
ing to assume this responsibility
when circumstances clearly de

"Many of us opposed the recall
two years ago, and none of us
would support one now if it were

Editor's opinions. The issue, how
ever, is not opinion but competence.
"Although we have been con- j
cerned with the quality of editori
al writing in the Daily Tar Heel
this year, we are supporting the
recall primarily because of the re
peated instances in which The
Daily Tar Heel has ignored facts.
distorted news stories, and abused
innocent individuals. It is typical
that the Editor's reaction to the
signing of petitions by over 1.000
students was to dream up stories
about "cliques" and political in
trigue, and then to write editori
als denouncing the "cliques" he
has just invented. During the past
few days we have watched with i

will defeat it at the ballot boxes
