The Annual A. P. Meeting
mHE annual meeting of the Associated Press is of Impor-
X tance not merely to the members who represent some
1300 of the daily newspapers of the country, but to the pub
lic at large, because IT brings into attention the great service
which thia mutual organization performs, in. the collection
and handling of news. Newspapers exist primarily to chron
. icJc important facts of everyday life and to print and dis
tribute this record of events with swiftness and accuracy.
The way they are accomplishing this is a tribute to the skill
of the highly technical organization which has been cre
ated, which makes use of the best facilities available for dis-
. patch of news to member papers.
Tha nt vsar hn hppn one of strain on all news or
ganizations. Staffs have had (o work under greater pressure
because of the volume of material to be handled and the econ
omies which it became necessary to enforce. There has been
no diminution in the "news load" of the great press service.
On the contrary there never was a time save during war
when the public interest in news was as keen and the sig
nificant event3 were of such vital importance as aunng ie
past few years and months. We think it is safe to say that

and tn the nublie with consnicuous success. Foreign news,
elections, business news, domestic news like the Lindbergh
kidnaping, the Akron disasterthe Long Beach earthquake,
all these parcels of news have been handled with great
" -Vill " '
Recognizing the proprietary interest of the members in
thA new which thev collect and distribute over the Asso-
- dated Press, the members voted to withhold the news from
radio stations save for brief bulletins on important events.
This is a necessary step in order to protect the papers for the
commodity which makes their product of value.
. The Associated Press is a great non-profit organization,
nnnirfttlvelv owned and administered. Its service is to its
member papers, and through them to their readers. Through
decades it has proven its loyalty to high standards of jour
nalism. It is non-partisan and non-sectarian. Its sole purpose
is to relate fairly and completely the news as it is being cre
ated dav bv dav and hour by hour all over the world. So fine
ha been this service that the American public has come to
place implicit confidence in the truth of dispatches which
bear the "AP" identification. And it is to maintain that
.standing that the Associated Press dedicates its whole or
ganization. : .
The Statesman is one of the oldest members of the As
sociated Press. It is proud of its membership; and happy to
report the old organization is growing with the times and
' keeping pacewith all developments in the field of news-ga-
. thering and distribution.
