This exclusive “extra edition” was written by Arnold Eric Sevareid in June of 1934, when the Minnesota Daily had normally ceased publication for the summer. Published and hurriedly circulated among the remaining students on campus, Sevareid‘s “EXTRA!” edition 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.
