Lyons agreed to do. The Phillipian of
1973 was a much smaller paper. The
pages were half the size that they are
now and the paper was at most six
pages long.'Also, all of the stories had
to be typed up on atypewriter and then
'taken down to Andover Townprinting.
They would have to set the plates in
lead, "just like the old days," comnnits Mr. Lyons. When all of the stories were printed up they would need
to cut them out and lay them out by
'hand. Then it had to be sent back to the
printers to print the final draft.
Eventually, an editor-in-chief
came along whose brother was the editor-in-chief of the Harvard Crimson,
The Phillipian began to use the Crimson's facilities to print. They continued
to print there until about five years ago
when they first started printing at The
Eagle Tribune,

articles for grammar, punctuation and

Paper.
Another element that makes the
Phillipianmore independent than most
publications is that "it doesn't get a
dime from the school," as Mr. Lyons
says. The entire budget for The Phillipian comes from subscriptions and
adds. Although when the paper has
needed money, as it did when it purchased new computers, it was given a
free-interest loan by the school. The
paper eventually pays back the loan
over a period of time by setting money'
each year devoted to repaying
the loan. The Phillipian's financial
independence has in the past allowed it
to assert its editorial independence. As
Mr. Lyons says, "In my years here,

Well-respected by students and facuilty, Mr. Smith agreed to take up the
mantle when Mr. Lyons asked him in
January. Mr. Lyons is sure that Mr.
Smith and the new board will retain
the spontaneity and carry on the traditions that are the foundation of theideals of the paper. Mr. Lyons says
that, "the last thing I would advise the
paper to do is to broaden their base
concerning females and minorities."
When Peter Christodoulo '98, the
former editor-in-chief, was asked
about his thoughts on. Mr. Lyons'
retirement from the Phillipian, he
answered, "Mr. Lyons was a constant
beacon of support to us throughout our
term as editors. Whether we -put out a
stellar isue or found ourselves in the
face of controversy, he was always
there to back us up in whatever way
necessary. He was our biggest fan and
