With the mass media exerting a tremendous influence on our day-to- day living, scholastic journalism with its emphasis on mass communication becomes a vital part of any high school curriculum. Career literature written about opportunities in journalism strives to motivate the high school student to consider professional journalism as his life' s work. Even though the percentage of high school students who have been active in journalism functions and then elect professional journalism as a career has been small in the past, there has been a decided increase in the college journalism enrollments since the year 1951. According to the Newspaper Fund, sponsored by the Wall Street Journal, 19, 229 young people were majoring in journalism careers in 1965 as opposed to 8, 769 in 1951.
