The newspapers of Australia come in for some warm praise from Dr. Walter Williams, Dean of the Facul ty of Journalism at the Missouri Uni versity. Dr. Williams lias just con-1 eluded a world tour investigating the methods of news-handling in the vari-, ous countries, and his visit to Aus tralia some months ago will he well remembered.
