When Right Makes Right
In 1908, the editor of The University Weekly reported rumor of an error. A writer was said to have mistakenly reported that two members of the debate team were also members of another student organization. The editor, though, didn't let anyone off the hook:
They say that the Weekly erred all around and last week we gave space for the correction of our 'cub' reporter's story on the debaters. The proper thing, however, for Woods and Jernigan to have done would have been to have allied themselves with the Demosthenean society when the Weekly said they belonged to that organization. They should bear in mind that the Weekly makes no mistakes and hereafter what the Weekly says is so, is so.
