 - Thomas HySand Busy at College (Editor's Note:...
Thomas HySand Busy at College (Editor's Note: The following is a story concerning Thomas L. Hyland, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hyland, Monroe, who is a student'at the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul. It was written by Denny Wurst, a journalism student at the college.) "That the busy man is the best man for the job," is true of Tom Hyland, a junior at the College of St. Thomas from Monroe. In addition to working for his BA degree in sociology, Tom holds down four part-tune jobs and also participates hi three extracurricular activities. For the past three years Tom has been working in the admissions office, and for the past two years he has been the All-College Council supply director, plus the decorations chairman. In the evenings he tutors a freshman of Cretin high school and once a week does volunteer work at the University of Minnesota hospital. When asked why he has so many jobs, Tom just said that it naturally lightens his financial burden and two of the jobs, the tutoring and the volunteer work, give him valuable experience in the field of social work. • The young Wisconsinite also said he wishes to become a social worker and attend graduate school at the university. Tom spent last summer working at Camp Courage near Maple Lake, Minn., a camp for crippled children and adults. He said that medical social work is his major interest. As far as his extracurricular activities are concerned, Tom is a member of the All-College Council, the Choral Club and the Sociology Club. He mentioned he also is taking a course in public welfare at St. Catherin's College which tends to be quite extracurricular at times. Tom said he has many other interests, too, such as classical music and table tennis, but rarely has time for them. Thomas Hyland 'Headline City' In TV Spotlight NEW YORK UP)—Believing that nearly everybody is fascinated by the reporting and dissemination of news, Wide Wide World (NBC-TV) will visit Washington next Sunday to examine working newsmen and their organization. Producer Ted Rogers says the program, "Headline City," will "show viewers just, what it means to be a working newsman in the world's most newsworthy city." There was a time when the average newspaper city room was as sacrosanct as a hospital operating room. But no more. Now some even contain glassed observation booths for visitors. There's one man I wish was still alive to view next Sunday's program and grumble and snort at this invasion of a newsman's privacy. He was my city editor on a paper whose management suddenly began encouraging tours of the plant by bands of] schoolchildren. \Vhen the children appeared, the city editor always retired to the men's room, muttering about being a trained seal. There's a bit of the ham in everybody, but it's a mighty thin slice in today's ablest newsmen.
