They will fly from the Horace Williams Airport 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 ates DOUG EISELE Make Stateme nts Instruction will be supplied by Principle "innocent until proven Wilson Air Service. The new Ces sna "172," a 14.) horsepower aircraft with tricycle landing gear, will be used for the training. After 10 hours of dual flight ins- (Ste AI HOTC Page 3) guilty," then the present editor has condemned an innocent man. (5) A staff training program should be instituted at the Tar Heel. (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 only. (7) Editorial page columnists should voice a wide range of opin ions and not merely "parrot" the editor's point of view. (8) I am completely independen' of political connection or control Not one penny of campaign fund? has heen contributed by anyone but me. I seek this position not for political advantage but as a journ alist who fee'ls he can improve ou newspaper. It is unon these eight points tha' I respectively solicit your vote ii this recall election. Statement from Grayson Mills campaign manager for Candidate Paul Rule: It is extremely unfortunate tha' what began as well-founded stu dent body sympathy cast to oust an incommensurate, heterochtic editor, has turned into a pot of political clap-trap. It has become evident to me that on one side of the ledger we have a group which took advantage o this sympathy to attempt to fur ther their own interests rather than hold the goal of improving the Tar Heel as their sole motive. "Eisele For Editor" hackers wound up their preelection cam paign Monday with submission of a letter signed by a cross-section who favor the NEIL BASS if UNC students ecall movement. Following is a reprint of the let ter, signed by the cross-section cf UNC students, who urged the elec- ion of Eisele today: "We are students who come from many phases of University 'if Rarnlu would u-p all npree on .IV. A,Ut.a.T T. ....... ' ... 1 - - iny issue. e do agree, nowever. that this is one of the most import- mt elections Carolina students 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 mand the replacement of an in competent student official, it be comes hard to defend the prinli ple that such decisions can be left in student hands. In this sense. "freedom of the press" is involved in the election, for our press can ly and responsibly edited. "Many of us opposed the recall two years ago, and none of us would support one now if it were j based on disagreement witn ine 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 growing sense of outrage the man ner in which the Editor has abused his office hy inventing news and body is awfully tired of this brand ol political manipulation, thts sense of negativism. And I feel confident that the student body will defeat it at the ballot boxes today. "I can hardly over emphasize the importance of this election as far as my life is concerned. But I matter very little. It is for my successors that I urge the student body to defeat political negativism at the polls. No editor can func tion successfully and speak out ur. hesitantly with the threat of 're call for disagreement's sake' star ing him in the face each time he sits at his typewriter.

"In Dast elections, there have been too few voters. Today, sH; dents can little afford not to ex ercise their priceless ballot box privilege. "The issue at stake far trans cends personalities. The issue now clouded by political manipu lation, charges and countercharg es is basic free expression as opposed to a controlled student press.
