FEW PEOPLE APPRECIATE
VALUE OK A NEWSPAPER
The following article is from the
pen of Dean Lyle M. Spencer of the
University of Washington:
Few people in the average city ap
preciate the value of a newspaper
to a town.- Like flowers, they are
appreciated most by those who do
not have them. Like mothers,
the are wan. 6 rnGgt when they
Most people look upon a news
paper as the business of a single
individual. If it thrives, that is
the owner's or the editor's busi
ness, "if it falls, that also is the
owner's or editor's business. As
a matter of fact, the success or
failure of a paper is a matter of
grave concern to an entire town.
If it were not for our news
papers, rumor and gossip would
run riot over the world. Every
one knows how a simple question
asked by someone often la made
a statement by another, how that
statement is distorted by B second
or enlarged by a hird, and how it
goes on and on until people do
not know what to believe. Some
times such S story gets so big tha
the only way it can be stopped i
by something coming out in th
paper and stating the precis
truth. Such conditions we shoule.
have constantly if it were not. foi
Newspapers, too, are the besl
advertisement a city has in the
outside world. Other cities judge
a town by the kind of a newspaps
it has. If it is supported well
given the news and the advertis
ing patronage It ought to have, it
thrives and is able to present ar
appearance of prosperity for thi
town to the outside world. If i.
does not thrive, outsiders are in
clined to look upon the town a.
undesirable to live in, and so
move on to other cities.
Newspapers are also our chisi
source of information. Most of
our reading matter afeT we leave
school comes from the newspapers.
What we know about the presl
dent's doings, about the struggle
between France and Germany n
the Ruhr, about Henry Ford as a
candidate for president, and about
other national and world prob
lems, comes from the papers
Thomas Jefferson once said thai
if he had to have government
without newspapers or newspapers
without government, he would
take the newspapers, because thru
them he felt th state could be run
with at least fair success.
If some of us appreciated more
fully the value of our newspapers,
we would make greater effort to
se that they get the nws and ad
vertising and so become success
ful. Modern society cannot get
along without newspapers any
more than it can without schools
