FROM time to time during
the last decade there ha
appeared agitation over
the exploitaion of socalled
"crime news" in the-newspapers.
Men. and wemen of
national prominence have de
claimed against what they
have described as sensational
ism In the chronicling of vio
lent crime by the American
pvesa. Recenly there has been
mach "battle, murder and
sudden death" in press dis
patches. From the day the
LoeV-Leopold . case claimed
public attention up to this
issue murders of singular bru
tality, ferocity and sordidness
have occupied thousands of
columns of news space on the
first pages of dallies through
out the land. With the desire
to find out exactly what
Salem's residents think of
present-day methods of news
papers In printing such news
the New - Oregon Statesman
sought expressions from sev
eral citisens. This is what
GERTRUDE J. M. Page,
Salem realtor, said: "I like
the editorial opinions express
ed by newspaper men about
crime. If rf.be newspapers
would only give facts in place
of using the sensational head
lines to attract, I'd be better
satisfied. I would like to see
the newspapers put more
stress on the good that is
done, both by people and
counries, rather thatf so
much on crime."
NORTH DETRICK, office
assistant, said: "It seems to
me all newspapers put more
In about crime than any other
thing. I think they over- em
phasize crime to the detri
ment of other news."
GEORGE VADNET, of the
Bligh hotel, said: "Crime
news In the newspapers seems
to be what the people want
now. There are some' crimes
that should get publicity but
many crimes would be better
if ignored by the press, par
ticularly Juvenile crimes."
REX ADOLPH, cigar store
operator, said: "Crime news
seems to be the best attraction
of the papers today. People
getting papers here look for
the crime news first. Guess
the papers print what the peo-
pie want most in the most
W. W. HILL, superintend
ent of the county courthouse
