Johns Hopkins Gazette: May 22, 1995

Editor's Note
     Welcome to the first issue featuring a redesign of "The
Gazette," the university's weekly newspaper. We have changed our

writers, photographers and designers--bring their talents to the
paper as we pursue our primary mission: to keep the faculty,
staff and students of the far-flung Hopkins community informed
about the university.

Weekly editions resume Sept. 5.
