OREGON CODE OF ETHICS
Last Session of Conference
Accepts Listed Standards
TRUTH AND JUSTICE URGED
Saturday Sees Addresses,
Luncheon, Conferences, and
A code of ethics, as prepared by Dean
Colin V. Dyment of the University,
was unanimously accepted by the news,
papermen of the state at the final ses.
sion of the conference held Saturday
morning. This code, prepared at the
request of the state editorial associa
tion, contains seven main headings, and
reads as follows:
“Accordingly we adopt for our guid
ance the following code, which shall be
known as the Oregon Code of Ethics
1. Sincerity and truth.
2. Care, competency and thorough,
3. Justice, mercy and kindness.
4. Moderation, conservation, and pro.
5. Partisanship and propaganda.
6- Public service and social policy.
7. Advertising and circulation.”
Policy is Adopted
Adoption by all newspapers of a
constructive editorial policy, together
with moderate methods of operation
was strongly advocated by Fred W.
(Pa) Kennedy, who is known through
out the country as a “doctor of sick
newspapers.” Mr. Kennedy is a pro
fessor of journalism at the University
of Washington, and has had a wide ex.
perience with country newspapers.
Mr. Kennedy went thoroughly into
the matter of advertising rates, and
pointed out that some papers were
actually selling space at less than cost.
This he attributed to their lack of sci.
entific knowledge of costs.
Herbert J. Campbell, of the Van
couver Columbian, explained the Wash
ington newspapermen’s method of or.
ganization by districts, and suggested
a similar plan for Oregon.
The session of the State Editorial
Association was called to order by El.
bert Bede, president of the associa
tion, and Dean Colin V. Dyment pre
sented his code of ethics.
Dean Dyment Presents Code
In presenting this code, Dean Dyment
said, “All agencies and instrumental,
ities employed by men, singly or col.
lectively, should be based upon the
best ethical practice of time, so that
the end-in-view of society may there,
by be hastened. We therefore pron.
ounce the ethical responsibility of jour,
nalism the greatest of professional re
sponsibilities, and we desire to accept
our responsibilities and to the utmost
extent that it is right and responsible in
our respective circumstances.”
Professor Thacher offered at this
time to represent a list of Oregon news
papers before large eastern advertising
agencies while on a trip he plans to
make in the near future. His offer was
referred to a committee, which will
have charge of the selection of the
papers to be represented.
The afternoon was devoted to a
luncheon, given at Hendricks hall, to
which the newspapermen, their wives,
and upperclass students were invited.
New President Toastmaster
L. D- Drake, newly elected president
of the conference, acted as toast
master at the luncheon, while Dean Eric
W. Allen, Floyd Maxwell, Wanna Mc

Sikes gave short talks.
