I' (to.) Upper Dei Mdtftes thursdoy, July % 19S9 et fle$ ulomes "JOYS" OF NEWSPAPERING An aroma of fascination surround^ a r paper, making many persons say they'd like to own one. It is a fascination which cj.ngs to everyone except newspaper people. TViey have no illusions. Now, if you want to own* a newspaper, here is what you'll have to cfto m one normal day. * Explain to Mrs Smith why Aunf Sarahs 85th birthday party was not on the front page. Explain to an advertiser why it is impossible to get him a certain page. Explain to an ex-subscriber why you had io cut off his unpaid subscription. Explain deadlines 500 times a day and why you have to have them. Soothe a lady who called her party in too ° *' Soothe another lady whose name yotu mis- SPe Explain why some weeks you've got news running out your ears and other weeks the paper reads like a report on Amalgamated Steel. _ Apologize to an advertiser for an error in his ad and smile sweetly while he tells you what an idiot you are. Decipher scribbling that comes, in written on check backs, paper napkins, a corner of |un- tor's arithmetic paper or the back from Cousin Frank. Pet a balky Linotype that is as nervous as a dish of jello and puts you further behind when you're already behind. Explain to a customer arriving ate with copy that if you get his stuff in, you'll have to leave somebody else out and then explain to the one you left out. t Cope with a stack of newsprint thats so full of static you- can't pry it apart ^»jjjj|jj 9 ° S ' Explain to an acquaintance why you can't leave out the item that his son was picked up and charged with reckless driving ... and try to make him understand that all court cases, police cases, etc., filed and on record are handled as routine news items, week in and week out —without favoritism shown. < The last section of the paper is now printed and the paper is now on its way to the P«1off.ce from where it will fan out to some 25 to 30 postoffices for delivery the next morning. Then for about an hour or two, you feel a sense ot RAILROAD DISTRESS SIGNALS While there have been suspicions that railroad passenger service is being "sold down the river" by some of the roads, it is hard to believe that all of them are deliberately trying It is easy enough to ask why there is no better service, faster schedules, quality equip ment, etc. but the basic question is whether o hot there is, even then, enough passenger business to finance all of this expensive outlay. _ In the past week, two significant moves have been made by railroads in the midwest. _ The Milwaukee and Burlington are trying out combination trains, that is passenger trains which also are carrying "piggyback" freight cars with through destinations. This allows each train to carry passengers, yet it also handles through freight of the piggyback variety which helps to defray the total cost of train operation, without injuring the passenger schedules between Chicago and Omaha. The Chicago & North Western line has an nounced a.'reduced passenger fare on its top trains between Chicago and the Twin Cities, fares that are exactly what the bus lines are charging,-and a reduced cost on all diners. This will include the road's famous "400" trains.

Try private automobile has replaced a big chunl of what used to be rail passenger business while airlines and buses have also taken much of the former rail traffic. Yet, the railroads are asked to, maintain good passenger trains and thousands of miles of track, hundreds of stations, and all other conveniences for the comparatively small trickle of passenger business they get. The new efforts 'on the part of the railroads to solve their problem indicate a desire to continue passenger service — if it can be done. * * * DO THEY KNOW? Farm Grain Dealers Bulletin — "I sometimes wonder," Senator George Aiken of Vermont told his colleagues, "if the critics of farm programs really know what it is they are attacking.

He makes $35,000 a year plus $10,000 for expenses. But he uses ever* cent of that to make ends meet. The Nixons are buying a $75,000 louse but $50,000 of that is a piece of mortgage paper. Actually, the Nixons were better off financially when Nixon first came to Washington 12 years ago as a Congressman. Then, he had $10,000 in Government bonds. Today, he owns no stocks or bonds and 'Mrs Nixon has no money of her own. The Vice President, gpf course, could do better. He has turned down offers that would bring him in more than $100,000 a year.
