"If you can make more people
understand the working of the
news, you will strike a telling blow
for the preservation of a free
press," was the advice given by
Barry Bingham to a group of
journalism students yesterday.
Bingham, president and editor
of the Louisville Courier-Journal,
spoke at the fifth annual Journal-
ism Honors Convocation in Rack-
ham Amphitheatre on "How To
Read a Newspaper."
EMPHASIZING throughout his
talk that too many Americans lack
the knack of reading a paper care-
fully and critically, he placed the
responsibility of getting the news
across with the reporters and edi-
"To persuade people that we
are worthy of their respect, we
mlust make them understand the
three elements of a newspaper,"
First, he said, a clear, fair ac-
count of what happens each day
should be given in the news col-
Secondly, opinion should be
expressed only on the editorial
page. Bingham said that al-
though editorials essentially
stress an opinion, the reader has
a right to expect the (material
used to be factual.
The third point Bingham
brought out was interpretation.
He said that because of the com-
plicated nature of today's news,
the modern newspaper reader has
to be a combination of Benjamin
Franklin, Leonardo DaVinci and
Interpretive articles by staff
members or syndicated columnists
can fill this need.
He indicated that observance of
these points would "steer people
to clearer reading of the news-
Following Bingham's lecture,
there was an awards presentation,
with four students receiving Mc-
Naught Medals for journalistic
achievement. They were: Donald
G. Bremner, Grad.; Joseph Ep'
stein, '52; Floyd W. Thomas, '52;
and Gerald Peters, '52.
Epstein also received a Sigma
Delta Chi scholarship certificate,
along with Emily Blair, '52; and
Mary Dell Ford, '52.
HAS GOOD TIME, TOO:
Union Opera Chairman
Yobst Gets Things Done
* * *
By JAN WINN
"Comes a serious moment and
there is Yobst with a Witticism,"
is what his cohorts say.
For 1952 Union Opera, General
Chairman Jim Yobst is a fellow
who believes that "things can get
done only when you're having a
good time besides." That's what
happened with the Opera, he said,
referring to the show which for
the first time since the war netted
a sizeable profit.

KNOWN ALSO as "Yo-Yo,"
"Boy's Boy," "Small One" and
'Joy Boy" the jovial six-footer
feels life can be a very happy thing
if you just look at it that way.
A member of Druids, senior
honorary; Mimes and Phi Delta
Theta fraternity, Yobst finds
himself much too busy to worry
about the problems of the world.
"I'll have plenty of time for
that afterwards," he maintains,
referring to the years after his
In tune with his philosophy of
helping-others in order to be gen-
uinely happy yourself, is Ybbst's
decision to be a doctor. Surgery
or psychiatry are the fields the
ambitious senior is contemplating,
feeling they are the most interest-
ing. "But the main thing is that
I will be able to deal with people,"
Hailing from "the greatest town
in the world," the Toledo native
is planning to do graduate work at
the University of Toledo before
entering medical school. i
Tracking down this gregarious
senior is ,a difficult task for any-
body. Like as not he may be
found sporting a pair of home-
made Burmuda shorts at Palmer
Field, studying anatomy in a sail-
boat or intently conversing at a
certain Liberty St. establishment.

around, I'm having a great time,"
