Minnesota Daily, “Extra!” End of Drills

This exclusive “extra edition” was written by Arnold Eric Sevareid in June of 1934, when the Minnesota Daily was normally out of print. Published and hurriedly circulated among the remaining students on campus, Sevareid‘s “EXTRA!” reported the Regents’ surprise decision to end compulsory military drill at the University of Minnesota, following extensive activism on the part of students. It would be the second ‘land grant’ institution to do so.
