Washington Editor Tells
Role of Press in Struggle
James Russell Wtggems, manag
ing editor of the Washington Post,
told guests nt the Matrix-Gridiron
Banquet last night we have no
need to fear the ultimate end of
our conflict with the enemy.
Outlining the function of the
press in our times, VV’iggens suit
it was simply to furnish the fact*
to the people. If the people an
provided with the same facts, hi
continued, they will come to tin
same basic conclusions. It is wher
people are divided in their under
standing of what the facts are lhal
discord arises.
If we diligently seek the facb
and try to draw from them re
concilable conclusions, we car
establish large areas of concord
so that no external enemy car
threaten our solidarity, Wiggins
During the first combined ban
quet, sponsored by the men's am
women’s journalism fraternities?

Phi, several guests were honored
Awards Made

Joe Floren was named the out
standing male graduate by Bil
Clothier, president of Sigma Delta
Chi. SDX also honored the top
per cent of the graduating class
J'hese awards are made by nation
a! and do not necessarily have tc
be men.
Those honored were Mrs. Lau
rence Kodabaugh, the former Bar
bara Jermiah; Mrs. Arlette Mcr
ritt; and Mrs. Charlotte Graydon
Speaking as an amateur poet
Wiggins guve forth with this ronili-1
tion of the condition of the world
nt the present time, "Who can fall
to wonder if this lovely spring will
be our last.
"This is no time for Americans
to despair of the future,” he said,
bouncing back from his gloomy
; outlook of world prospects. "We
:ue on the threshold of whnt Is
| clearly our greatest age."
Notes Press Klghts
Wiggins listed five basic rights
held by the American press that
aie not generally held throughout
j the world. They are:
1. the right to get the news,
j 2. the right to print the news
without prior restraint.
3. the right to print news with
out fear of punishment.
A. the right to access to printing
5. the right to distribute, to put
itself into the hands of readers and
into the mails.
"American ideals of a free press
are not generally held in the world
today," Wiggins said. Hardly any
where is it believed that the press
has obligations to print the truth,
he continued.
In America, he said, the right to
get the news exists and Is observed
primarily because American news
papers exert this right and insist
on it. The forces for freedom of
the press marshalled themselves
early in America, he said, and yet
even here and now there are gov
ernment proceedings that are car
lied on behind locked doors.
Wiggins said that one of the
physical difficulties under which
the press is laboring at the present
time is the shortage of newsprint.
American newspapers, he said, have
grabbed more than their fair share
of the world's supply.
Bob Frazier. Register-Guard re
porter, was master of cerejnonies
for the banquet. Charles Duncan,
associate professor of journalism,
introduced Wiggins.
'Voice of Ducks' Program
Use Opinions of SU Patrons
Student participation is the
crux of a “Voice of the Ducks”
program called “Table Hopping at
the Student Union."
Every Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday two men from KWAX are
pretty sure to walk into the SU
around 10 a.m. with a microphone
and a magnacorder, a type of tape
recorder. They set up the equip
ment and get ready to take a 15
minute recording of questions and
campus answers.
George Drougas, junior in
speech, traps any student who
happens by the table and asks
him the question of the day. Ques
tions might be anything from an
opinion on Douglas MacArthur’s
dismissal to “And what are you
planning to do this summer, Joe
College?” Mostly, Drougas' topic
for the day depends on how he
happens to be feeling as he walks
into the SU.
After the recording is complet
ed, the equipment and KWAX men
abscond with their material. At
6:15 p.m. ever Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday the opinions of morning
coffee-drinkers can be heard at
88.1 Inegacycles on an FM radio
