The program was supposed to
be a debate between Malcolm
and Floyd McKissick, national
chairman of the Congress of
Racial Equality and a lawyer in
Durham. It turned out to be
all Malcolm, and McKissick's
speech seemed out of place.
Malcolm spoke of his move

his followers. He told, of the

DTH Staff Writer
Seventy-two years ago today, The Tar Heel, a scrawny, un
impressive organ of the Carolina Athletics Association dared
to announce that its columns would "be open to discussion on all
appropriate subjects with an endeavor to do full justice to every
one." On Feb. 23, 1893, there were few editorial battles to wage.
Editor-in-Chief Charles Baskerville was obliged to fill the space
on his first front page with a run-down of office holders of
But, the DTH, being what it is, soon found the controversy
which has kept it going for over seven decades.
After only one month of existence, the paper had picked its
The non-fraternity staff members, agitated over the paper's
pro-fraternity policy, pulled out and established a rival paper
The White and Blue which tried unsuccessfully to abolish not
only the DTH, but the fraternity system as well.
The paper, published in its early days one copy at a time
on a hand operated screw press, grew from weekly, to a semi
weekly, to a tri-weekly, to a daily. It added pictures, adver
tisements, color and national news.
But the controversy and discussion that the first editorial
promised has continued from the scathing blasts in 1899 against
the delapidated athletic facilities provided by the University
to the scathing blasts in 1965 during the James Gardner incident.
At the turn of the century, when UNC's athletic contests
were held either in the open or in an unsafe wooden structure
located on Franklin Street, the DTH campaigned for better
athletic facilities and got them.

In 1919, editor Thomas Wolfe (of "Look Homeward, Angel"
fame) took up the banner of the crusading DTH. He is respon
sible for the enlarging of the editorial section of the paper to
full-page size. A rash of campus petty thefts was attacked by
Wolfe editorially, and he campaigned vigorously to put the
DTH on a semi-weekly schedule.
Editor Walter Spearman, now a professor in the School
of Journalism, led a DTH fight in 1923 against the rival Yellow
Journal, a scandal sheet circulated by Sigma Upsilon literary
fraternity. He won the fight when his opponent had to leave
school because of his part in the Yellow Journal.
The DTH stepped into one of the major controversies of its
history when the Supreme Court desegregation decision of 1951
was handed down. In keeping with the policy of previous DTH
editors, Charles Kuralt (now with CBS-TV) editorially supported
the decision in the face of considerable criticism.
The greatest fight the DTH faced came in 1956 when the
editors conducted a hard campaign against the hiring of big-time
coach Jim Tatum by the athletic department.
Tatum's friends struck back hard. A recall election was
held in an attempt to get rid of editors Louis Kraar, and Ed
