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.
