'A thorny matter'
"Journalistic quality is a thorny matter," according to a recent
article in "Time" magazine. 1 V
After producing one issue, Halyard staffers have found this to be
true. Striving for journalistic excellence in a newspaper is an
undertaking of enormous proportion and complex implications. i
In order to achieve any kind of credibility as a good communications
vehicle, a newspaper must adhere to certain rules of style and be
consistent in its policies.
BECAUSE OF SOME questions that arose after the first issue, we "" |
have decided to clarify some of the newspaper's policies ..
First of all, the editing of Letters to the Editor and the Guest Column
is not done for the purpose of limiting freedom of expression. Editing is
done because of limited space and to ascertain that any libelous
material or copy containing innuendo or harassment is not printed.
The editing of material is by no means restricted to letters to the
editor. The work of any reporter on a newspaper must pass through a
copy desk. Editing all material that goes into a newspaper to ensure '
readability and good taste is a basic responsibilityy of a newspaper to its
readers. ... ---- | r-

review. It is the reporters job to make sure his quotes are accurate and
his information reliable. Meeting in conference room
ALSO THE EDITORIAL Committee voted to use the term Ms. in
place of Miss or Mrs. It is also the policy of the paper to use a person's
title (Dr. Ms., Mr.) only the first time his name is mentioned in a story.
After that the person will be identified by his or her last name only.
