The discussion raised by President Eliot's speech on journalism has not yet subsided, since certain Philadelphia papers refuse to retract their first reports. That President Eliot had been misrepresented was evident even before he had denied the newspaper statements. His objections to teaching journalism at colleges are supported by the best, thinkers, and have yet to be answered satisfactorily. That his rebuke to newspaper managers was well deserved is shown by the way many of them acted about his speech. The misrepresentations and attempts to make a sensation out of his remarks cannot be too strongly censured.
