Of the untold benefits to be derived from the CRIMSON editorial competitions, a few stand out in bold relief. First, the candidate is forced to learn how to condense his most confused ideas into palatable form, to clarify them into the short space of three paragraphs. Second, if he is ambitions and energetic, he obtains an insight into the inner workings of this great university that makes his remaining year or two intensely interesting. He comes into contact with men who have valuable ideas, who will some day become well-known figures. Whereas the average interview for the News Board is necessarily limited to a single topic, the editorial candidate has the privilege of discussing world as well as local affairs.
Third, the candidate has a golden opportunity to air his criticisms of the way the various departments are organized, and the courses offered. If a candidate has practicable schemes for reform, and is willing to take the time to make them readable and convincing, he may be sure to receive the cooperation of the members of the Board, and their aid in carrying through his ideas.
Fourth, for those who are thinking of a journalistic career, or even of a few years' of journalism, their experiences on the CRIMSON will stand them in good stead, and, more important, will greatly facilitate the arduous task of finding a worthwhile job.
