Lessons of a lousy college journalist

Dick Seiler greeted me at the door of the Linfield College dining hall.

For lunch, a number of fraternity members apparently wanted to rip my head off. A husky football player, as well as a bright student, Dick had appointed himself as my temporary bodyguard.

I was editor of the weekly college newspaper, the Linews. That day’s edition included a student “humor” column about a supposed fraternity initiation rite.
