"Co1legie-bred Editors" is the
subject of a column of interesting
comment and information from the
graceful pen of Dr. George Mellen,
Pblished in the Knoxville Sentinel
and the. Chattanooga News.
From a discussion of the depart
ments of "journalism"' now main
taineid in several of the institutions
of higher learning, including Co
lumbia uo-iversity and the State un
versities of Virginia, Missouri and
Kansas-the value of which he seems
to think at best dubious, -editors be
ing born rather than made--Dr.
Mellen passes on to the increasing
number of college-bred men to be
foua-lda in newspaper work nowadays.
Casaally surveying the field, he finds
most of the editors now engaged in
moulding ' public opinion in the
South to be holders of college di
plomas or at least to have been for
a time in college.
At the heaid of the Mobile Regis

Nashville and thereafter from Leip-:
sic. Major J. C. Hemphill, who has
recently left the Charleston News
and Courier, after thirty years, to
become the editor of the Richmond
Times-Dispatch, is a graiduate of I
Erskine college, Due West. Frank
P. Glass, long of the Montgomery
Advertiser, who a few weeks ago
broadened his field by taking over
an interest in the Birmingham News
,and assuming its editorship, names
Princeton as his alma mater. James
R. Gray of the Atlanta Journal
Clarq Howell of the Constitution:!
and Pleasant A. Stoviall of the Sa
vannah Press are all graiduates of
Georgia institutions. Gideon H.
Baskette of the Nashville Banner
and -Josephus Daniels of the Raleigh
News and Observer were among
those whose college courses were cut I
short by the War Between the See- 1:
tims. The list, as Dr. Mellen says,
is capable of extension.
Dr. Mellen mentions some of the
editors and other newspaper workers
of his own State who have enjoyed !
college advantages, add& a moment'sj.
thought, suggested by his words,
brings up the idea that probably in
* no Southern State would one find a
larger proportion of the newspa- I
per workers to be college-bred men!
than in South Carolina. T'his leads
idiirectly to some attempt at confirm
ing the hypothesis so raised. As one
-tells the men~ off at random, even in,
the deplorable absence of any writ
ten data on the subject, the idea;:
strengthens into conviction. A few
minutes of memory-searching 'suffices
for the compilation of a list which,
with all the minor inaccuracies itI
may exhibit, is at the least eatirely
adequate to show that the day has
passed in this State when an educa
tion "at the ease'' was considered
a1together sufEcient for a newspa
per career, in either the weekly field
or that of the dailies.

This list is also doubtless capable
>f extension. It is not put forth as
emplete. It is presented merely
'or what ieterest it may have as in
licating the number of college-bred
nen doing newspaper work in the
tate. Of course nothing said here
n is to be construed as an argument
hat such training is absolutely nee
ssary to success. Some of the
nost worth-y and influential men the
tate press 'has ever had neither had
ior needed diplomas to attest their
,questioned learning as well as
heir native ability. Newspaper
ork is in itself a liberal education.
It is not to be idisputed that a pass
ge through the -gradations of an
ffie is the finest of schooling, as
ar as it goes-and it goes a long
vay. The setting of type has been
:nown to make finished and profi
:ient stylists. It is .not, therefore,
matter of accident t-bat sonme men
vho became renowned in the edito
-ial chair acquired practically their
chole education at the case or the
Mairial desk. .
