As women entered fields of work, formerly occupied by men, the career of n Journalist was
chosen by many. That the nation might have
news of the world during the war, women first
did their greatest work in this field, taking up
where the men had dropped their endeavors,
and learning bit by bit this fascinating profession.
When the men returned to their work, n great
part of the women remained to make a place
for themselves In the newspaper world. They
have succeeded in their effort, and today stand
side, by side with the best known men in this
sphere. Faced with the problem of making their
efforts worth a great deal or abandoning the
work altogether, they have accomplished much.
In every phase of Journalistic work, women
arc coming into prominence. As reporters, they
have not only developed an ability to present
the news as it should be presented, but they have
been able many times to aid in bringing to light
As editors they employ sound judgment and
much common sense in the managing of affairs.
As mechancial operators, they are thorough, and
capable. In various departments, which are
comparatively new to the newspaper world, they
have developed useful phases of journalistic
As a profession, journalism is well adapted to
the ability of women the world over, and is fast
being entered by them. Women will continue
to rise as they have recently done, until they
will stand at the very top.

For the past week sixteen young ladies, mem- -'
bers of the local chapter of Theta Sigma Phi,
.honorary professional Journalistic fraternity for
women, have been writing stories, reading copy,

in order that this
and proof-readiissue of the Kernel might come to you from their
hands. In this work they have been assisted by
several young ladles who are prominent In Journalism on the campus, and who were asked to
help with this special edition.
Chi chapter of Theta Sigma Phi was installed
at the University in 1920, and since that time the
members, individually and collectively, have be
come outstanding in Journalistic achievements.
Miss Mary Gorey, an alumna of Chi chapter,
who has been ah assistant society writer on the
Cincinnati Enquirer since her graduation from
the University, has recently been elected presi
dent of the Ohio Press Association. Miss Leida
Keyes, of the Class of "29, has organized and is
the faculty advisor of a student publication in
her school. Miss Helen King, who is now connected with the Publicity Bureau, is one of the
most capable women journalists in this part of
the country, and Theta Sigma Phi is proud to
claim her as one of their own. Miss Martha
who was graduated last year, is em

that last year's Increase In college attendance
is only 2 per cent.
This slight increase applies to 216 colleges in
the approved list of the Association of American
Universities; however, it includes the stronger
institutions in the country.
It may also be noted that this retardation has
no special geographical limits, since reports show
that In 22 states, last year, there were fewer college and university students than In previous
years. In those Institutions with more than 300
students in the Intervening groups, the propor

proceeds from the smaller to the larger Institutions.
Perhaps we may attribute this to the fact that
students are prone to prefer larger institutions
to smaller ones for the reason that larger insti
tutions are supposed to be more progressive, and
on the whole are likely to offer broader fields or
study, nnd often more highly specialized courses
However, regarding the decline in enrollment
from the viewpoint of colleges in general, we
must consider that restrictions on immigration
are bringing much fewer prospective college students to this country: also that American growth
of population Is much smaller than' It was five
years ago. Hence, enrollment Is likely to fall
still more in the next decade, unless values or
attractions of college training become more
widely emphatic than they are at present.
Although it is not the consensus of opinion,
some people entertain the idea that college
training Is merejy a means of postponing work
for four years, and if the student has the in

engaging In professional enterprise, he does not
deem a college education essential. Though in
some fields college degrees are required, It does
not hold that all value it as necessarily conducive to better accomplishments.

feeling that college training is a valuable asset,
