Transcript TO WRITE ABOUT IT Changes help SPJ better promote journalistic professionalism The Society of Professional Journalists, University of Houston Chapter, went through many changes. The society promotes high ethics and professional excellence. It also represents the interests of journalists in court cases and congressional hearings, particularly in the areas of First Amemdment rights and the Freedom of Information Act. Vice President Tanuja Kanwar became the first delegate from UH in three years to attend SPJ's national convention, held last year at Cincinatti. Speaker's meetings, coordinated by Dana Richie, became the most visible means for SPJ- UH to carry its message to the community. Speakers included polit- ical writer John Gravois, anchorman Bob Boudreaux, columnist Ken Hoffman, a panel discussion on UH's RTV and journal ism internships, news anchor and SPJ professional chapter President Sandy Rivera, publisher Bert Woodall, feature writer T.E. Bell, a panel on "Cops and Reporters" with area police department spokesmen, television news director Paula Walker, writer Rebecca Trounson, Houston bureau chief for the L.A. Times, J. Michael Kennedy, sport reporter Jeff McShan and Caroline Phillips of The Wall Street Journal. A newsletter, The Spectator, edited by Paul Binz and J. Eric Town send, appeared several times and won praise at regional meetings. In addition, SPJ- UH members under Liesl Owens volunteered to help the School of Communication celebrate its tenth year by putting together a display of front pages from the university's daily newspaper, The Daily Cougar, spanning the 55 years of its presence atUH. But the most valuable work of the organization was performed under the direction of Veronica Bucio, who organized SPJ volunteers to instruct journalism students from Yates High School on the use of Macintosh computers to publish their school newspaper. Although Yates in Houston Independent School District's only magnet program in journalism, no one associated with the newspaper had been shown how to use the new equipment. The high school students were invited by SPJ-UH to spend three Saturdays in the computer lab at the School of Communication. Bucio scheduled the dates and coordinated the training sessions, investing much of her own time beyond her classwork and her job as an editor at the Houston Chronicle. The Yates students were hungry to learn and to apply their new knowledge to their own newspaper. The training sessions were a success. But all this has been preliminary activity, a preparation for things to come. The Hinson- Hazlewood decision continued to be interpreted by some universities in Texas as a license to institute censorship at their student-staffed newspapers. The "traditional" antagonism between the Students' Association and UH's Daily Cougar flared when Cougar reporter Scott Streater voted nine times in the student election and wrote a story on how easy it had been. Streater was later placed on disciplinary probation over the protests of faculty, staff and professional organizations such as The Society of Professional Journalists. ► Robert Dante The members of the Society of Professional Journalists are: (seated) Britt Thomassen, Michael Smith, Membership Chair Lara Schultz, President Robert Dante, Hilary Alisa, Freedom of Information Chair Tanya Deason, (standing) Vice- president Kim Houston, Sendee Project Chair Veronica Bucio, Tanuja Kanwar.
