Our Doily h . Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn •„ Of Newspapers and How Hie Teachers Used to Frown on 'em Back in school days I recall that uie academicians of the Colleges at Arts and Sciences took a dim vRw of the style in which newspapers are Written. They damned newspaper language as "journalese, ' meaning that she was a slattern ou the Ush-docK playing fast and loose wltn the King's JKnglish. It impressed my generation not, at all. We wanted to be newspaper writers, not librarians. And of course wo were two up on the academicians in the argument because we could point out that, U) new ^rds stan with the vernacular of the people, creep into tnu news-, papuis, and iinally are admitted | to the dictionary, and (2) about 80 pur cent oi tne writers of books that are at all readable served an apprenticeship on a newspaper. These thoughts were stirred up 55TH YEAR: VOL. 55 — NO. 89 -•—• -• Hopt taw, rrvn IYJC Consolidated Jan. 11, 1*2» U.S.to Stall Talks Pending Refraction WASHINGTO N(fft-The Chinese and North Korean.Reds may soon be told this country 'will not go brick into preliminary talks on a Korean peace unless they retract perfidy charges against the United States. So for, the Reds have given no indication they will do so. The Slate Department, it Was learned yesterday, has drafted such a notice to the Reds and is clearing it win the 10 nations tha sent forces to help out in the Ko rean War. The notice is expected to HOPE, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 30.79S4 as J. read a Southern Newspaper Publisaer's association Bulletin whicii reprinted another newspaper's explanation o£ the word "ipurnalese." The editorial, from m Jacksonville tFlaJ Times-Union! A ^1°™"° mtorman 1 in oart: American note would amount to i-ejection of a Communist demand that t'fp preliminary talks resume Monday after a break of nearly c/n n,lf n1 .»» 4.1, . t * rr ut ovc ^ the weekend. Dlp omatic "tormants said this said in part: '"Journalese usually differs from essay-type English in it* spare style, lack of embellishment, and conciseness. Tho 'inverted pyramid' is the namu given to journalism's system of staling a story in capsule form in its first sentence, then presenting additional information in order of its importance, leaving jninor. details until the end. * "Many attribute the pyramid's origin to the early days oi Ihe telegraph when the in- slrumenl was not too reliable. Never knowing when the lines might go out a correspondent made sure- the 'meat' of his story went through first. The form is still useful today since it enables an editor to trim the end of a story when it must bo shortened to fit into the idpage. And, of course, it lets the lazier reader skim the high points from the top of each story without bothering further." So much for the Florida dissertation — and I might add that in the interest of further condensation we offer you headlines ... so you can read the head and skip the story entirely. But back yonder the Journalistic tribe didn't take the criticism of i jtjachcrs lying down. The favorite |.,.-J'be .at the academicians was. the story Charles Cooper, former night .managing editor of the old New York Herald (now Herald-Tribune), used to tell in the Pulitzer school at Columbia university, where he lectured three times a week. Cooper pointed out that condensation was an art also sought after by the Colleges of Arts and Sciences. For instance, there was the case of the lady M. A. who told Hr class in drama that to be successful a play had to include three fundamentals: Mention - 1 of the two months. Deity, reference to royalty — and a touch of sex. "Now," she said, "I want a brie: example — the briefer the better, There must have been a jou nalist In that high and might classroom, because somebodj according to Cooper, broke up th lecture with a one-line classic: t "Great Heavens," cried the Duchess, "let go of my leg." Train, Auto Meet, Two Men Injured Two 'Hope men, -Randolph Haddix, 60, and U. F. Crews, 61 narrowly escaped death shortly before 3 p. m.

Earlier in the meeting on this fifth day of the conference, French Foreign Minister Bidault introduced a resolution, under which the four powers here would join in promoting a disarmament conference wider the sponsorship of the United Nations.

The army's second ranking chief said alpo that the full potentialities of .United States global air power and .sea power are "impossible of achievement, without many bases overseas." If for no other reason, the general said, the Army would be needed to protect these bases. ter. "It must be free," he went on "to negotiate the peace treaty.
