At one of the weekly Wednesda y evening meetings, Kay McFarlin, Cindy Oppedal and Mark Hastings discuss copy for the upcoming deadline. — ۰ ۱ e A, E,‏ بت bf 8 e wg ha T‏ — - $ Libel is any false statement published which brings a person into public contempt, causes him her to be shunned, or injures him her professionally. Libel is to journalists what malpractice is to doctors. Publications can be sued for printing libelous statements. In 1970 the first successful libel suit was brought against a high school publication. Since then student journalists have been faced with the reality of possible libel suits. WEB and SPIRIT staff members found that the libel unit taught in Introduction to Journalism class had practical applications. This was especially true for the editors who made the final decisions on what would be published. Since the editors were usually seniors close to legal age, the possibility existed of being included in a law suit. Jeff Shaw, co-editor of the SPIRIT yearbook, said that this possibility increased his awareness of what the WATCH THAT LIBEL (SPIRIT) staff was doing. His counterpart, James Wilson, said, '' The threat of legal retroaction tends to put the damper on creativity; libel by Suppressing malicious lampooning, takes the fun out of producing a yearbook.’ WEB editors had differing opinions on the matter. First semester editor, Jamie Miller, said, ‘‘We considered the possibility of libel on every story. It kept us from being too controversial.” Two separate WEB staffs were responsible for producing the newspaper second semester. Cindy Oppedal, editor for one of these staffs, said that even though their WEB had published several controversial editorials she felt that " with the type of articles WEB prints libel suits were only a threat, nothing more.’ Gretchen Potter, the other second semester editor, agreed with her. ''The threat of a law suit isn't as big a possibility as verbal abuse.’ Journalism 63

" When | go to a movie | see the work behind it, not only what the film is about and | enjoy it a lot more,’’ commented senior Chris Burger after completing the experimental film-making class offered first semester. The course was a new interdisciplinary offering taught by Dorothy Gugel and Steve Linduska. Linduska explained that since film-making is a means of communication which combines artistic visual images with word images the course was classified as a part of both the art and the English departments. ‘‘Film-making as an art is related to photography,” said Gugel. ''It involves working with color, composition, and light. It also ties in the arts of dance, music, drama, and writing.’ senior Carl Peterson expressed his feelings, " Most of the time (in art) I’m inspired by watching people, then going and listening to music, then transferring how | felt into a print or something. With film-making | could keep my music and LIGHTS CAMERA... follow my original train of thought.’ The film-making students discovered their limits. Junior Mark Gruber, explaining some of the problems they encountered said, ‘‘You need a group that really wants to make a film and has the big T (time) to put it all together. We found out how everything had to be coordinated and right on the day you filmed or it wouldn't make it.” “It took tons and tons of time, more than you'd ever imagine,” senior Shelley Alert elaborated on the time situation. ''To shoot four seconds (for the final movie) took four hours.’ The final products of the course were three eight milimeter color films two to five minutes in length. Coincidentally, the plot line of all three films concerned individuals who wanted to escape from their social ruts. " |t was a good class,” Gruber added. “| wouldn't mind taking it again.” , SS PPI Sf طط 4 ; مم A‏ SN ٣ , Below: ACTION!
