"The profession of journalism
requires educated men and women
more than any other profession
with the exception of education,"
Forrest W. Seymour, Pulitzer Prize
journalist and editorial director
of the Des Moines Register and
Tribune, said yesterday.
Delivering the eighth in the
series of University Lectures in
Journalism for 1951-52, Seymour
emphasized that the persons who
are to digest and convey knowledge
and ideas through the press must
be "as full of the understanding
of man's history and institutions
and as susceptible to calm reason,
dispassionate logic, intellectual
Integrity, moral honor and conse-
crated purpose as it is humanly
s * *
HE CITED the transmission of
information and ideas as a news-
paper's main function and went
on to say that journalists, like
teachers, cannot convey anything
they do not know themselves.
"The mechanics of journalism
are no substitute," Seymour con-
tinued, and commended the
University's Journalism depart-
ment for urging Journalists to
get the broadest education pos-
On the question of responsi-
bility of the press he discussed the
problem of objectivity and con-
cluded that only objective news
belongs in the news columns. "But
the press is 'not God. It is only
human. It can be just as fallible
as any other segment of society,"
"WE GIVE any and every opin-
ion an opportunity for expression
on our editorial page. That is
where interpretive news belongs,"
Talking about the controversy
over suppression of news in Wash-
ington he said that "any news-
paper needs to make sure first of
all that its own skirts are clean
before screaming about Washing-
While he contended that the
Washington situation was danger-
ous he remarked that, "there is
more sheer apathy and Irrespon-
sible connivance within three
blocks of the daily newspapers of
the United States than there has
been in the national capital
throughout American history."

IF YOU have been studying all
night and feel, a little drowsy
in " that boring three o'clock lec-
ture, you might well drop over to
the General Library which has
turned into the most popular
campus slumber spot with the
coming of languid spring weather.
Ostensibly erected for studious
undertakings, the General Library
and other campus study halls
have fast become appropriate
places for short naps.

Of course, most people try to
study at first, but in the quiet,
warm atmosphere their heads
soon start nodding, they slump
backward or on the table and are
off in dreamland-swimming in
the surf at Wakaki or enjoying an

thing in the world to go over po-
litical science or zoology together,
but who studies anyway?
Contrary to rumor, librarians
over at the Business Administra-
tion library do not wake up slum-
berers or break up conversing
couples. If students want to take
a nap, or have a quiet chat it is
all right with them, provided they
do not annoy other more studious
