"If a story interests a reporter, it will usually interest the reader. However, it must be kept in mind that news is perishable and must be handled promptly and properly if it. is to be of value."'

Following his address, Mr. Verhoeff led a discussion period which provoked a number of questions and an excellent response. Especially stressed in this period were the opportunities whicn the journalism profession holds for. college graduates, Mr. Verhoeft was the 'guest of Hendrix College during his stay in Conway.
