Prof. John R. Brumm, of the de
partment of rhetoric and journalism,
gave the second lecture of the Sum-
mer session series, yesterday after-
noon in the Natural Science auditor-
ium. Speaking on "The News and the
Citizen," he stressed the importance of
the newspaper to the national life, its
function of forming public opinion and
the influence it exerts as the medium
for expression of opinion.
"If we are to have liberal leaders,"
he said, "it will be only when we have
a public opinion educated by a press
unshakelled by laws governing what
it shall say. Freedom of speech as
guaranteed in the first amendment to
the constitution does not and never
has meant license and abuse of speech,
-owever during the war, espionage
acts were passed by congress to pre-
vent the expression of treason. In a
time of such a crisis as that it is
perhaps better to be loyal than to be
right, but the government should be
hesitant in checking the free expres-
sion of public opinion, for it is only
through the agency of newspapers
adequately prepared to present the
news untrammeled by laws that pub
lie opinion can be shaped.
"The problem facing the editor to-
day is how to give the best informa-
tion," Mr. Brumm said. "This," he
went on, "can only be secured through
establishing agencies to tabulate facts,
specialists who can present the long
line of causes rather that the overt
upon which the reporter usually bases
his story. As society tends to set up
agencies for tabulating results, the
newspapers will not have to bear the
reproach of inadequacy, and when
the methods becme more scientific,
the newspaper will have an easier job.
"Critics of newspapers complain of
poor writing, of sensationalism and of
inaccuracy', but when one considers
the speed with which the paper must
be written, edited, and printed and
the pressure under which all concern-
ed must bear, it is not surprising that
a few mistakes appear. In a news-
paper, these are noticed, but," he said,
"What if a teacher or a preacher or
a doctor published all his mistakes?
... $when a 'doctor makes a mistake,
he buries it.
"Newspapers will be scandal sheets
as long as the public demands them.
The editor faces a peculiar situation,"
Professor Brumm said, "the public
who pays three cents for a copy of a
paper does not support the publica-
tion. It is the advertisers who back
it, and the business man advertises in
the paper which has the largest cir-
culation, so the editor must give the
public what it wants. When the pub-
lic taste will be educated, prinipally
in the schools, then the newspapers
will cease to print sensationalisms."
The :lecture this afternoon will be
given by Dr. W. B. Hinsdale at 4:15
o'clock in the Natural Science auditor-
ium. He will speak on the subject of
"The Stone Age in Michigan." Dr.
Hinsdale is the Custodian of Michigan
Archeology in the Museum. At 8
o'clock this evening the first concert
of the summer will be given in Hill
auditorium under the auspices of the
University School of Music.
