COn.;ERNING THE TITLE
Aside from the obvious nautical con
notations of the word "BROADSIDE", the term
refers to 18th Century English literary
publications which simply consisted of a
sheet printed on one side only, and without
any arrangement in columns. It specialized
in containing some item of news, or an ;
attack upon some person, etc., and designed
A newspaper is an invaluable source
through which people can communicate and
express opinions in a sensible manner.
Furthermore, it is necessary for a college, ^
even a small college like Elon, to have one.
Yet for the past two years such a service
has been neglected by the student body and
S.G.A. administrations. This year, through ''
the efforts of the Student Government
Association, the paper will be revived; and
for this purpose an estimated $3,000 has
been appropriated by the Student Senate.
The paper will serve as a vehicle for
social and curriculum reform, a platform ,
for the sensible expression of opinions and !
ideas, a showcase for student talent, and !
a bullentin board for announcements and |
It will not be in the tradition of | '
either the "Veritas" or the "Maroon and
Gold"--which were two papers holding two ^ .
entirely different concepts of Journalism, j.:
The first bounded on the obscene, while the
other depicted a naive and plastic so''.iety
very similar to that found in Grim's Fairy ^
Tale. In lieu of bbsenity and sugar and |
spice will be responsible, intellegent and
more importantly, truthful articles con-
serning the student in relation to his
college environment. On occassion we may
be accused of "Radicalism", but to those i
who are quick to point an accusing finger
let me remind you that "What is right has i
always been called radical by those who
have a stake in something that is wrong."
I sincerely hope that the student j
body will stand behind the newspaper, for j
it is a sorely needed service that will j
alleviate the social and intellectual '
stagnation which has infested the admini- .
stration and student body of Elovi College.
