really looks as though .he worked
harder than many others. The life of,
-the journalist is not one grand, sweet
comic song punctuated by rich foods
and fore'gn news. It is a life of writ-
ing and re-writing and druggery and
hurry and' deadlines and editions and
extras and more writing and more re-
No one can deny that the newspaper
is one of the most important institu-
tiOns of the present order. It is the
organ not only of public information
but of public op'nion. It is the mirror
of our times. And the journalist is
the newspaper's humble servant. If
we must have newspapers, let us have
good newspapers; and if we must ;be
,journalists, let us be good journalists.
That is the motto of the Press Club
which opens a three day conference

public be enlightened as regards news-
papers and newspaper men, and the

morning delicacy known to Michi-

and satire to present a newspaper

The editorial entitled "Democracy
and Discrimination" assumes to settle
the merits of the question by the
simple statement that a war was
fought that only a high type of in-
dividual was concerned and he a bona
fide college student. Such an assump-
tion typifies the misunderstanding
which is the cause of so many dis-
agreeable episodes in our intersec-
tional relationships.. The editorial
very properly repeats that " a uni-
