Title

Editorial "Death At Age 99"

Description

This editorial piece criticizes the decision by the new editors of the Messenger for the magazine's 1978 issue to be satirical rather than literary. The writer claims that the choice could not be due to lack of interest by students, as readership had not been declining and there were other, more traditional applicants for editor. Still, the writer argues that, even if the campus was indeed going through a "period of literary apathy," these phases never last and should not be acted upon. The writer finally hopes that the University learns from its mistake and that students will be even more excited for the literary magazine if it returns.
