FEBRUARY is fm 1931 JOURNALISM SCHOOLS DEFENDED BY IOWA U PROFESSOR NEWSPAPER MEN MEET IN CHICAGO Frank L.Mott Gives Addres at Inland Daily Press Association. CHICAGO, Feb. 18. OT)--Asking What he described as "only a sympathetic and helpful attitude on your part," Frank L. Mott, director of the University of Iowa school of journalism, in an address prepared for dleivery before the Inland Daily Fress association today, described to practicing newspapermen the workings of the schools of journalism. "We do not ask that you abate your criticism," Mr. Mott told the editors, "but that you study the work of the schools so that yours may be truly informed criticism." Journalism schools, according' to Mr. Mott, not only seek to impart to the 'students a knowledge of newspaper technique, but in addition offer courses in the liberal arts and sciences as well as work leading to an understanding- of newspapers and periodicals in general. In discussing the technical training offered by the schools of -journalism, Mr. Mott took exception to the statement that newspapermen could be better and more rapidly trained in newspaper offices than in the schools. This viewpoint is dis-1 appearing, he said, since nearlj everyone has come to the belief tha" the trial-and-error method of learn ing, without careful oversight and supervision, is expensive and inade quate as compared to the work given in a well-conducted school.
