This article from the first issue of The Daily Far Afield , published January 1971. This issue and others are available in the North Carolina Collection under the call number: FC378 UQf1

Daily Far Afield. January - May, 1971 Monthly. Five issues published.

The title is a spoof on The Daily Tar Heel. The banner proclaims that the magazine is "Dedicated to Editorial Mockery" and has offered "79 years of Editorial B.S." The contents are mostly editorials, commentaries on student government, and criticisms aimed at The Daily Tar Heel. One satire is a series of lessons on "Dating at Carolina." The final issue (the "Death Issue") reports that "The paper was dead on arrival of the Editor's Grade Point Average."
