The News Changes Ownership
I have sold the Falls City News
to Mr. D. L. Wood, a newspaper
man from Oklahoma, who will
take possession June 1. 1914.
Mr. Wood is a publisher o f ex
perience who comes highly rec
ommended, and no doubt he will
improve The News to meet the
requirements o f this rapidly de
veloping section o f Oregon.
The sale involves the transfer
o f the printing plant, subscription
list, good will and business o f the
All unpaid advertising accounts
due prior to and including this
date are payable to the under
All debts contracted on behalf
o f The News prior to this date
will be paid by the undersigned.
It iswith mingled feelingsof re
gret and pleasure that these words
are written. Regret for having
to leave this beautiful and pros
perous little city, pleasure that I
have been able to gain and retain
the friendship and good will of
the people o f Falls City.
No plans have been made for
the immediate future, though it
will be necessary to remain here
for several weeks in order to set
tle up private andofficial business.
Having severed my connection
with The News, and wishing you
all happiness, prosperity and long
life, I subscribe myself,

The U. o f 0 . school o f journal
ism has demonstrated a fact that
was already well known to many
men who have been long engag
ed in newspaper work. Only a
small percentage o f the number
who “ take journalism” become
real ‘newspaper’ men, and that the
young man who seriously “ wants
to be an editor” will do so, school
or no school. Unless the school
gives practical instruction along
correct lines, its graduates will
not be worthy wieldness o f the
most powerful weapon known to
man. The school has a mission,
however, in this, that if it helps
to a more general diffusion of
knowledge concerningthe duties,
powers and rights o f the press
it will amply justify its existence.
The institution surrounded by
mystery and hedged in by ignor
ance is dangerous to liberty.
The better one understands the
power o f the press the less in
clined he will be to use, or to allow
others to use that power for the
perpretation or perpetuation of
