Transcript Student Publications Manager Wayne Scott has retired to "grow up before I grow old'.' Photo by Michael Williams It's My Job Yearbook cat, Dr. "Kachoo" (a.k.a. Dr. Choo) is all play and no work. Louie Ingelhart, the "Dean of Student Publications Managers," once delivered himself of an opinion which, at the time, I thought quite mad. He said, "When an editor takes office, I shake hands, and when he/she leaves office, I shake hands again. In the interim, I leave them alone." I told him he either had the cushiest job in this field, or that he had a feeble grasp of his function. This was not entirely kind, nor was it a proper response. I have learned that editors, or any bright student for that matter, want to do a good job, to achieve a niche and to stretch the brain. Often, the best one can do is to leave the student alone to do that. That's what I've tried to do, except in rare instances, which are not the norm. After all, most students are not Eric Hoffer's True Believer, nor are they fools. A few students might have escaped prematurely from familial authority and feel a need to exercise rage, but they are few. A Student Publications Manager-Advisor is roughly akin to being the cruise director on the Titanic. You know it's risky, but why not enjoy the ride? In the first place, nobody knows what the press is supposed to do, which is inform and entertain as accurately as possible. In the second place, almost everybody gets mad at the press, usually because it (a) got something wrong, or (b) ignored an event of vital importance to you. It's almost a no-win situation for the press, and I include all newspapers, TV and radio — not just the college press. Lastly, as A. J. Liebling once cited in his masterwork, The Press, "Freedom of the press is relegated to those who own one." What makes the campus press so vigorous is that students have access to the newspaper and the yearbook. Many do not know this, despite regular entreaties from both publications to write letters, opinion pieces or gripes. The campus newspaper is closer to its readers than almost any other medium, with the possible exception of a small town paper writing for an art colony or a feisty New England township divided by caste. The work has been gratifying, the acquaintances many and the joy of seeing students moving on to excel unparalleled. I'm leaving to write books and other things. Or as a friend observed, I am leaving to grow up before I grow old. A last word? Yes: Be certain you are right and prove it, then print it, and let the lawyers worry about it. — Wayne Scott "Freedom of the press is relegated to those who own one." — A. G.
