The growing demands of the University have shown the need of a weekly paper. The Univer sity Athletic "Association regard ing itself as the means by which such a need could be supplied, at a stated meeting elected a board of, editors (chief and five subs. ) and a business manager. , : With this apology only, the first issue of the first volume of the Tar HEL makes its appear ance. This new venture is necessarily entered upon by the present board with no little trepidation, never theless with a determination, to make a success which can only be done through the indulgence and assistance of our faculty and fellow-students. Therefore we in vite honest criticism and .my aid in the advancement- of J-his -uiew project will be thoroughly appre ciated. ' i . , ,' V " ' : -v.'; r . : - --n -';'!- - - ; .. THE LEGISLATIVE COM MITTEE VISIT THE UNIVERSITY, The following members of the I legislature composing- the visita- tion committee arrived at the Uni- versityon a special train Friday I morningf February 3rd: ! ;. Messrs. Battle, chairman ;Cheek" 1 Ay coke, James, Pou, of the sen ate and Messrs. Holt (chairman) Euse, Parker, Starnes, Walker, Ward, . of the house. , , After breakfasting, the regular chapel exercises were attended, i then visits were made to the read ing room, libraries , and various 1 lecture rooms where classes were assembled. The numerous labor atories were inspected as well as some of the students' rooms. In the .t afternoon meetings of both the societies were held and the gentlemen who were not alumni were made ' honorary members: Just after prayers the boys called repeatedly for speeches from" our visitors, a majority of whom re sponded most felicitously and gave words of encouragement for the-future outlook of the univer sity,, from a legislative appropri ation standpoint. All saw the need of a sufficient appropriation tv fully equip, this the most use ful ar i important of oil the State properties', and give to a univer sity, of whose past brilliant record and wiiose future prospects are suclh. as would make any State in the union proud'to be the', - jpbsses sor of such an heritage to hand to posterity, a sufficient appropria tion to put the university on a ! financial basis equal to its rapid expansion " and growth. When some of the committee expressed their deep regret at not . 'having had an opportunity of receiving an education, in their youth, we coulds not but feel that ;t ; was a duty that was owed to future gen erations, and which has been due to those that have passed away, that the supreme law making power in the State, ought to make tuition at , the university free to North Carolinians , as is done at the University of Virginia to Vir ginians and the only way to do this is to appropriate a sufficient amount to keep the university up, until resources from outside States arid the technical courses shall make itself sustaining, and, too, we couid not but think what ; a shame and loss it was to North Carolina, that it. had failed, to open the doors of the university, in the past to such sterling man hood as represented the legislature on the committee. The body of the students were well pleaded witH ; our friends, if they are , fair sample of our legislators thL ycaC'i-N'orth'-'Carolifia is in good hands. They know the needs of the University.
