Production Of Daily I or Heel
Involves The Work Of Many
By DOUG EISELE
1 he Daily Tar Heel. (elel)iatin4 it fOtli ;i!iiiicrsary today, is among the top college
newspapers of the country, employing student help to perform a man-sized job in the
world of communications.
"What goes into the making of that newsparc which is offered six days weekly during
the regular shcool years? Who are the people and what do they do who write the thousands
of words for ybu daily?
Basically, The Daily Tar Heel is like any daily newspaper published by private con
cerns or organizations anywhere in the United States. There are no restrictions on it which
are not placed against other publications in the '"outside" world.
Vet The Daily Tar Heel is unique in thai its editor is elected, pay where it exists is
small for the pobs rendered, and many tnanhours of. lite labor daily go into its making.
These f?cts, however, do not
handicap the purpose of the news
paper and its rele in the overall
development of the University. It
has gained respect comparable to
the independent newspaper and
parctices a freedom not always
found on University campuses.
Patterned after dailies, the Tar
Heel has as its key employes an
