At a meeting of the Student Council Committee on Undergraduate Publications held recently, it was voted that an inter-paper smoker should be held to which the members of the boards of the Advocate, CRIMSON, Illustrated, Lampoon, and Monthly should be invited. It was recommended that the smoker be held in the Lampoon building and the tentative date was set as Tuesday evening, March 18, at 9 o'clock.
In regard to the proposed merger of the Advocate, Illustrated, and Monthly, the committee was of the opinion that the Illustrated has a distinct field to cover in undergraduae journalism and should not be included in such a merger. The committee, however, favors the merging of the Advocate and Monthly, but feels that no such merger will be successful until the undergraduate and graduate members of the two papers are thoroughly in sympathy with the proposition.
On March 13, 1912, the entire Council voted, "That all the undergraduate publications, within four weeks after the beginning of College, unite in holding a common smoker for Freshmen at which a representative of each paper shall be invited to speak. This common smoker is in no way to interfere with the individual smokers that the different publications may desire to give."
Early in the fall the committee decided that such a smoker would be impracticable, and at a recent meeting it was voted that the recommendation of the Council, as above expressed, should be withdrawn and that the matter of inter-paper smokers be hereafter left in the hands of the Committee on Undergraduate Publications.
