PRESS PASS: Autobiography of a Woman Reporter

Email this review


Buoyant handling of newspaper material, in this woman's work and that of her companions on the South Bend News-Times. An unaffected account of her early years in journalism, breaks good and bad, types of work she has done, -- obituaries, church and charity features, women's activities, spelling bee, soap box derby, all fronts in American town life. Notre Dame and Rockne give special emphasis to the football angle. Entertaining inside picture of how stories are handled, backgrounds of feature articles, local scandals, competition with the rival paper, personalities. Done with a breezy touch.
