The Wake Forest Student 403
of Wake Forest. The business manager was P. H. Wilson. The editor-
in-chief was Carey J. Hunter, Jr.; the other members of the staff were
F. E. Hutchins, news editor; G. F. Rittenhouse, sporting editor; P. S.
Daniel, Y.-M.C.A. and Church; L. T. Stallings, college editor; Mrs. J.
Richard Crozier, social editor; R. P. McCutcheon, faculty editor. The
first nine numbers had each sixteen pages of small octavo size, but
beginning with the tenth number, it was a regular newspaper of four
pages, sometimes of four columns and sometimes of five, the size
varying according to the amount of matter furnished by the editors.
Since November 11, 1921, it has been regularly a six-column sheet of
four pages.
After the establishment of the publications fee, which went into
effect in September, 1926, the financing has caused much less trouble.
It was contemplated that this fee would take care of the costs of
publication of the Wake Forest Student, the Howler and Old Gold and
Black; but the fee was found inadequate to take care of all three and
after the expedient of charging an additional fee for the Howler
proved unsatisfactory the publication of the Wake Forest Student was
discontinued after May, 1930.
With increased revenues from a larger enrollment in December,
1931, the management made bold to put out another periodical, The
Student, preserving the serial number of the Wake Forest Student as
volume XLVIII, No. 1, and having part of the name, but quite
different from the former Wake Forest Student. For several years it
attempted to be a collegiate humor magazine, and as such found itself
continually in trouble with the faculty. In more recent years it has
come under the sponsorship of the English Department and has
become a modern, illustrated magazine publishing timely articles,
essays, short stories, and poems, making a publication that is both
representative and readable. It is published six times a year.
