MRS. DWIGHT A. HOAG.
Editor of The Journal: I had it in
mind to write you my sentiments in
, regard to your heading, from the time
you began doing gymnastic stunts with
t, as you ask for the opinion of sub
scribers now. I see no reason for
hesitating to do so.
Personally I liked the old heading.
It was like an old friend, we always
knew where to find it and had no dif
ficulty in recognizing It.
I have no objection to the new type
used, it Is clear and neat in its appear
ance, but if it Is to be called the head
ing why not put It at the head of the
page and leave It there?
If we want mince
eon we can get at our own table, or
i a pracn at some down town
Tenstaurant. At our house when we
want the news we much prefer it in
a neat orderly' paper.
Long ago some one said . "let all
things be done decently and in order "
7e believe that policy will be as satis
factory if applied to newspapers as to
our daily lives.
aing, so called heading tucked over to
the side, scare-head lines at top, in
termingled with ads, weather pro
phecies and such matters; savors too
much of yellow journalism.
.We have a neat, orderly, beautiful
little city, such as the capital should
He. May we not eschew metropolitan
tactics and have a clean, neat news
paper in a dignified dress?

the cold. Let us have the pep but

MAUDE S. WILBUR, '
1770 Broadway, Salem, Ore.
"The heading of the 'Capital Journ
al' would appear neat ami distinctive
should the heading be made-up across
the top of the page instead Of in the
four and five column style, with a
boxed item in eith
sibly weather forecast and circulation
"The mnklnc-un of full columns
past the point of the front page date
line breaks the regularity and sim
plicity of the page. I like to see the
seven column cut off under the head,
,and a system of graduated heads
worked out beneath.
"I like to see the newsnaner nn&n nst
wen balanced as possible, and u cer
tain well defined idea worked out.
I like the body tVDe of vour n.mer
very much; it is easily read and not
over large. I would rather see a few
light face italic heads used instead of
too many black face heads. Ttn.Hr-

eye in the least.
"I do not like the idea of too black

read one that is, if a two part head,
both black and light.

unanciai policy which house repub
licans have determined to insist on

This agreement, reached at a con

year 1920-21 will be asked to appro
priate the huge peace time total of
nearly $9,000,000,000. Tn th f
this sum the republicans have io...
mined to cut to the bone and force

Dear Sir: I am submitting the fol

on the new heading and make-up of
the Capital Journal's first page:
"First, I believe in the make-up of
a front page of a newspaper should
come under three leading points
neatness, distinctiveness and simplicity.

Washington, Dec. 8. With inst in

prohibition becomes effective, the
wets today appeared to be starting a
final, desperate drive to knnr-k mi
war time prohibition. The law is being
attacked from every nnfcle by attor
neys for the liuuor intei ests.
What they want is a faw weeks
grace in which to dispose of enormous
liquor stocks, the sale vaiuc of which
is estimated at a billion dollars.
