Stepp, approved by the Publica

would turn out the same biased, un
interesting paper now being issued.
"All the majority of the student
body now does with the DTH is

He said that the DTH- needs a
major staff reorganization. Stepp
cited plans to expand the present
DTH staff to 50 members. Includ

staff of 15 members, containing
various political and local views.
Included on this staff would be a
member representing each politi

IFC and other important campus
Stepp said that each writer
should receive a byline for any
story written by a student regard
less of its length. The news staff of
the DTH needs careful supervision
and more students need to work on
the DTH, he stated.
"When people try to work for the
Tar Heel, they get the run-around
and finally quit trying" Stepp de
clared. To solve this problem,
Stepp plans to put an apprentcie

Stepp discounted his opponents'
ideas about an "outspoken" editor

15 man editorial staff would pre

points within itself. He termed the
present page as "uninteresting, un
fair and radical."

for two more semesters. He is a

To Debate DTH Polieies
. Let's get this TAR HEEL editorship out in the open. I feel that
we both agree that a good fight for the editorship will create more in
terest in the TAR HEEL, regardless of who wins.
Because the Carolina student body needs to know how we both
feel on certain issues, I would like to challenge you to debate these
issues in front of the general student body at your convenience. I feel
that this debate should be open to anyone wishing to attend. Pos
sibly, the Di-Phi would sponsor such a move.
I leave the decision to you.
I would also like to assure you and Chuck that regardless of how
heavy the campaign gets, I have nothing personal against either of
you. Newspapermen have thick skin.
All three of us are sincere in wanting a better DTH, but may dis
agree on how to achieve these goals.
Clotfelter 'Always Willing'
"We have always been willing to debate any opponent at any mutually-convenient
time and place," said Wrye and Clotfelter yesterday.
"We would be happy to debate Stepp." .

Measures to increase the size of
the Daily Tar Heel news staff and
to "make its work more complete
and efficient" were proposed yes
t e r d a y by co-editor candidates
Chuck Wrye and Jim Clotfelter.
Former asst. sports editor Wrye
and former news editor Clotfelter
have ben endorsed by the Publica
tions Board and the Student Party.
They said they would add a full
time copy editor to the news staff
"The copy editor would read, write
and rewrite copy, freeing the news
editor to work with hews sources
and reporters," they said.
iBy the addition of a copy editor,
the candidates said, "Tar Heel
readers will get a more complete
and more accurate newspaper.'
. The candidates . said they would
try to get a "stringer" in every
dormitory, fraternity and sorority,
and University school and depart
ment. The "stringer" would be a
person responsible for reporting
to the DTH the activities of his
area," they said.
Under their proposed "beat
system", said Wrye and Clotfelter,
reporters would be regularly as
signed to the most important areas
of the campus, such as Student
Legislature and the Office of Stu
The candidates said they would
work to recruit additional staff
workers. "Because two people will
hold the editor's position, we will
have more time to devote to the
staff," they said.
Wrye and Clotfelter said they
would establish "an associative

would also add a weekly feature by
cartoonist Jules Feiffer, who is
carried in Playboy magazine, the

"If these measures to bolster the
staff and expand the scope of news
coverage arc successful," they
said, "we would be in a better po

They said they hoped to be able
to print two six-pagers each week,
instead of the present one.

McDevitt said he was initially in
formed by members of the Elec

for vice-president" and seeking
student ideas would not be a part
of campaign expenses if they were
distributed more than 30 days be

Elections Board chairman David
Buxton said this was1 a common
misconception, which he shared, of
the election laws. The 30 day limiv
applies to parties and not to can

Devitt and Patterson to appeal to
the Elections Board for a decision.
Both said that they regretted that
what should have been an adminis

into a campaign issue.
