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 Iessica Hart. 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 techniques. 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. i . aff :si r ra-iii .4 ' f . .,,., ,..,,,,,. ,, W. ly ,-ar "Iournalism's a lot of work ai frustration very time-consumir But all the joking around and wa ching Miss Green eat Egg McMuffi in the morning made it bearable said Iunior Alicia Cooke.

J-II Deadline pressure brings high anxiety, staffers supply humor to ' ' relieve tension , .. Y G . I, . 5, 4 , 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," said Middlebrooks.
