..... • TEN/The Press/Tlmrsday, October 5. 1989 THE PRESSi ' EDITORI~L Fred Friendly: A journalist and much In ore Monday evening, one of the most prominent figures in the world of journalism captured the undivide<f attention of a much too small audi- ence. Fonner CBS News president, Fred Friendly, is the Edward R. Murrow Professor Emeritus of Broadcast Journalism at the Colombia Univer- sity Graduate School of Journalism. He spoke on the topic of \Media Ethics, Privacy and the First Ammendment.\ However, Friendly's So- cratic dialogue could have been appropriately renamed \You're on the Hotseat!\ Friendly. humorous yet discerning, fired a series of ethical questions at the distinguished panel that kept them on the edges of their seats and at many times dumbfounded. Friendly displayed the true quality of a journalist; he was never at a loss of words. He was accompanied by his beautiful wife who sat poised in a chair on the stage. She listened attentively to her husband, taking notes and smiling. Mrs. Friendly was as polished as a first lady. Cortland was honored and certainly privileged to receive this visit from Fred Friendly. It's really pathetic that the Brown Auditorium was not filled to the brim. Once again the apathy of the students at Cortland State is reflected. It's too bad for those of you who didn't make it-a little culture couldn't have hurt!

Then, load the L.O.Z. aboard large military refueling tanker aircraft. These planes would then climb to the lower level of the ozone layer at forty thousand feet.
