THE TAMPA TIMES, Monday, September 9, 1963 Editorial Page Paper To Come of Age, Finally This issue marks the fourth birth day of USF's student newspaper, the Campus Edition. Since its inception, it has been a unique newspaper. Unique in the sense that it is a paper within a paper; a part of the Tampa Times. Being a paper within a paper has its good points. It gives the staff an opportunity to work on a full size paper, under near-professional con ditions. It allows a more liberal time schedule with later deadlines than w o u l d ordinarily be possible with other printing firrps. And finally, it is cheaper to print and offers more space-480 column inches of news this year. A paper within a paper also can have bad points. The Campus Edition is forced to conform to much of the Tampa Times' style. Headlines are limited and special effects are usu ally shunned by the company. Being a part of the Tampa Times, the Cam pus Edition also l o s e s some of its personal contact with the school, and for that reason special pains must be taken in the preparation of its copy. Taking all these good and bad . points into account, this year's staff feels that the Campus Edition will come of age and take its place among the outstanding college publications in the nation. This feeling is based upon several changes and additions to the paper . First is the addition of a third page. With a full-sized editorial page in the making, the Campus Edition will now include editorials, book and movie reviews, regular columns, car toons and letters to the editor, all presented every week and all on one page. Page one will be reserved for news, and the other inside page will contain both news and feature ma terial. The staff is larger this year, en abling more and better coverage of all campus activities. In the past some events went unnoticed by the paper because of 1 a c k of reporters. The staff has been completely reorganized (see story, Page 1) and geared espe cially for this campus. A more uniform style has been devised for the newspaper, both in writing and in topography. It will make the paper easier to read, easier to understand, and much more ob jective. These are the big changes, impor tant to the reader. There are many more, but they are smaller, technical changes which need not be mentioned here. The staff is putting out this paper for three basic reasons: to gain ex perience for later journalistic work; as a service to the university, and because they find the work enjoyable. And for the s e reasons, as well as others, they will be doing their best to put out the finest newspaper pos sible. The newspaper is coming of age this year. It is no longer a page list ing all the activities of the week. It is no longer a bulletin board for cam pus notices. . It is a newspaper and we expect to run it as professionally as possible. . With an editorial page, we expect to make full use of editorials. There will be three editorial writers whose sole job it will be to closely examine any matter in dispute and find an answer; an answer we feel will be the best one. Whether the editorials be constructive or destructive, they will ref 1 e c t the official opinion of the newspaper and not any special inter est group. The Campus Edition is a laboratory project of the journalism classes, an independent paper which serves as a battleground of experi ence for the staff, not a propaganda machine. . With this in mind, the staff will do its best to produce the finest ex ample of modern journalism possible. We only ask that in return, the stu dents do their part in supporting the newspaper. How? Read it. Earth Losing to Outer Space Terra firma seems to be losing her pull. Her once faithful sons and daughters are eagerly joining the race for a place in space. Some of these will come from USF , doubtless. If the upward trend continues, orbiting may acquire more aficianados sports car racing or speed-boat mg. This mass blast-off will have cer tain advantages. With everyone zip ping around upstairs, the population problem will automatically be solved. Shoe-banging over territorial boundaries will cease. Anti-anti-mis sile missiles will become obsolete, and no sane power would try to build a wall around the moon. Surplus food could be shipped to thos e under-privileged Martian canal workers. Surplus astronauts could be used as sight seeing guides. There might even be a use for surplus com mittee chairmen. Local problems would also be af fected. Congested roads will become quiet as country lanes . Anyone pecu liar enough to stay on Earth might even be able to find a parking space. Urban renewal will be unneces sary. Tenement dwellers will have mi grated to the new suburbia in the sky, leaving plenty of room for now useless superhighways. . Of course some new problems w1ll pop up . What will the Sanitation Department do about all those weight less sandwich wrappers and tab-top thermo cans? How will sign posts be anchored on the Earth to Luna spaceway? Who will direct traffic? John Glenn? Flash Gordon? Will the little old lady who works for used car lots only pilot her capsule to Pluto once a week? And what about Sunday drivers who insist on cruising at a mere 5 ,000 m.p.h.? Where will the first Spacial Hil ton dome be raised? Who will operate the rocket-fuel stations and Cooper burger stands? When will Universal Teamsters be organized? What pioneer will lead a peace march to Saturn to protest discrimination in the Outer Ring? Perhaps a Space Corps will have to be established to work in the back ward areas of Jupiter and prevent the spread of stellar Communism. Even the United Nations may have to open a branch office on Uranus and provide pressurized suits for restless nations who take walks during discussions .
