With the obiect of making the f!n
newspaper, and giving its readers the best news service
possible, the CaDital Journal hn
the Associataed Press and will on and after January 1,
be served with the full leased
strongest and most reliaible newsgathering organization
m the world. ' , ; ,
The Associaated Press needs no introduction to the
public. Comprehensive in details, unrivalled in facilities,
conservative in treatment, devoid of sensationalism,
without bias or partisanship, it presents news of " the
world as it happens, v .; , , - : :
, ,v The dominating characteristic of the Associated
Press is its dependability, its reliability, its trustworthi
ness. When the Associated Press carries a story, its train
is confirmed. It takes the risk of being "scooped" to get
at facts and avoid fakes- At the same time, it is usually
first with the news. .-. ' : -; ;..
The superiority of the Associated Hrpsa ruro,, i.,,rol
, - . i, v. . wj uivi tiiai
organizations was vividly apparent during the war." It
was the first to report great events like the long distance
bombardment of Paris, and it never deluded the world
by a faked signing of the armistice. When events hap
pen, the Associated Press is there with the news and
not 'before they happen.
The age of sensationalism in American journalism is
passing. Scare head over trivialities have become the
exclusive property- of the yellows. Scarcity of paper im
pels rigid economies in space, forcing a reaction from
great city blanket sheets with the unnecessary work they
entail upon the readers in his search for news. .The
papers of tomorrow must print the worth-while tele
graphic news, above all it must be as nearly accurate as
possibleand to print this kind of a newspaper, the Asso
ciated Press is invaluable.
With the Associated Press leased wire and its 15,000

"While 1 do not recognize your right
to ask me what I have doae with that
money, had I spent It all, I will say
that $50 of It went for the all-too-ornate
wreath that you sent for my
father's funeral."
"But but you would have sent
your father some flowers ?" he stut
tered. "Very probably, I would have plac
ed a few flowers near htm, but that
wreath was not for my father.
