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 declared. During the first combined ban quet, sponsored by the men's am women’s journalism fraternities? Sigma Delta Chi and Theta Sigma Phi, several guests were honored Awards Made Theta Sigma Phi awarded Hath leen Fraser the award for the out standing freshman woman ir journalism. President Gretchei Grondahl also introduced four out standing high school senior girls interested in journalism. They wen Eilene Harris, Eugene High: Mao Jean Heidenretch, St. Francis Carolyn Keith.

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 equipment. 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 dial.
