Iournalism I students filed into R-7
the first day, with their writing con-
cepts scattered like puzzle pieces.
Iournalism Adviser Lee Green at-
tempted to organize these varied
ideas into a complete pictureg a staff
with the talent and ability to maintain
the department's reputation.
"I had basic ideas of how to write,
but not in the Anvil style," said Iunior
The course is directed toward im-
proving the students' writing skills
and teaching proper Anvil and Reata
styles. These skills are developed to
build a competent staff the next year.
Beginning with the history of
straight news stories, students were
introduced to basic writing
Much time was spent on perfecting
the "colorful" lead. From leads,
students moved on to news and
feature stories. "I like features better
than straight news stories. They're
more interesting and you don't have
to use the inverted pyramid form,"
contributed Iunior Charlotte Whitty.
Actual class time was spent either
taking notes or writing various
assignments. Photographers were re-
quired to write, in addition to com-
pleting various photo essays. Stories
and worksheets were usually assign-
ed for homework.

Responsibility is the one word
which pertains to every job on the
journalism staff. Every person must
take care of his or her responsibilities
or the staff suffers as a whole.
Two staffs work simultaneously
throughout the year, Reata and Anvil.
Heading the Reata staff was editor-
in-chief, Iunior Doug Middlebrooks,
and leading the Anvil staff was
editor-in-chief, Senior Susan Feigin.
As a traditional appointment,
Iunior Susan McBride was named
personal secretary to the Reata editor.
Susan McBride and the rest of the
writers worked on both Reata and
Anvil. "Writers work as hard as
anyone on staff, probably harder.
When Reata and Anvil hit them at
once, they had two and three stories,"
