With the introduction of radio,
newspaper publishers wondered how
broadcasting would affect them. Many
feared that radio as a quick and easy
means of keeping people informed would
displace the newspaper industry altogether.
Others hoped that the brief newscast
heard on the air would stimulate listeners
interested in the story so they'd buy
the paper to get more information.
This second idea turned out to be closer
to the truth. Radio & print were not
substitutes for each other but actually
supported each other. You see the
relationship between different media is
not always one of displacement but can be
one of reinforcement. However this is
not always the case. Take television &
motion pictures for example, with the
popularization of TV, the motion picture
industry suffered greatly. Movie attendance
dropped when audience members chose to
stay at home and be entertained.
Likewise. When a football game was shown
on the air, the stands were often empty
because fans chose to watch the game at

at their first and their second choices?

*Well, you seem to have doubts about the state
university. But its biology department has a fine
reputation. What more could a biology major want?
*Yeah. And they also have internships for seniors.
But a friend told me that for the first two years some
lectures have a hundred and fifty students. You probably

have small discussion sections. Twice a week, and have
no more than twenty students.

by graduate students. At White Stone College all
classes are taught by professors.

White Stone? Or a bigger place like the state capital?

tuition is really high and I'm not sure I can afford it.
