Speeches by Robert C. Notson and John Thompson, manag
ing editor of tlie Oregonian and NBC news director in San
I1 rancisco, respectively, highlighted the first day of the Oregon
High School Press association conference attended by over 200
delegates and 36 advisers representing 93 Oregon schools.
Officers, elected by delegates Friday afternoon and pre
sented at the evening banquet are Dave Ramstead, president,
of Hugene; Howard Sullivan, vice-president, St. Helens; Lou
Seibert, secretary, Corvallis.
Speaking to the student journalists on the general topic op
portunities in journalism, Notson declared that radio, far from
being a true competitor of the newspaper, has actually stimu
lated the layman’s interest in the printed word.
Radio has created not only opportunities for emplovment
in radio journalism, according to Notson, but also has opened
more positions on newspapers.
I he managing editor advised students preparing to make a
career ol journalism to take specialized training in journalism
and to become familiar with liberal arts.
Realize Own Limitations
"Realize your own limitations, and realize where you can
best fit the needs of a paper,” Notson told the delegates. "A
young person who gets a job on a small paper learns very
rapidly what is required in newspaper publication.”
As a final note Notson informed the representatives that in
newspaper work "you’ll never get rich, you'll never go hungry,
and you’ll never be bored.”
Round table discussions, the advisers’ tea sponsored by
Theta Sigma Phi, womens’ national journalism fraternity, elec
tion of officers, campus tours conducted by Sigma Delta Chi,
mens "professional journalism honorary, and “Good Neighbors,”
a motion picture depicting operation of a metropolitan daily,
rounded out the day for the delegates.
Representatives attended the annual banquet at Hotel Os
burn in the evening. Dr. Laurence Campbell, toastmaster for the
event, introduced Thompson, banquet speaker.
With the belief that radio stations will greatly expand their
news gathering and reporting staffs to meet the demands of it s
listening audience, Thompson named several reasons which
make radio work more appealing than newspaper journalism.
Higher salaries, both for novices and executives, more
chance for original writing, direct communication with a large
audience, and the forcefulness of radio news, were a few of the
factors he listed.
Television and fascimilc transition of newspapers are two
