PAGE SIXTEEN 13LYTIIEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS , THURSDAY, Good Newspaper Shun Subsidies Newsprint Controls Not Heeded; Publisher Hits Cartel Theory NEW VOSK. April 24. (UP)—A good .newspaper stands on its ov/n feet and has no need for govcrii- ir|$nt subsidy, W. G. Chandler, Sjripps-'Howiird newspaper executive, and president of the American Newspaper Publishers Associi- tlQri, told the publishers at their annual meeting yesterday. "Newspapers discontinue piibltai- tip^i .when their o\vners and operators fall to serve or interest t?ic'f PMblic," Chandler added. "Tii c public, «-liicli bays the j?a- pef, votes on its continued exis- tcrjco ever}' day, every week, every montli." pJiaudicr said that it was hfs bejiet that a newspaper must stand or fall on Its OVVH mcrils. "Elimination ot the unlit is n major factor in tljc virility of tho American pref-s. The people of the United Slates arc voluntarily buying more nev:s^ap?rs at higher prices P" 1 ' crpy than iti any previous 1'par In our history." ' Chandler said most publishers could do even better it sufficient npwsprint were available. 'Hp attacked the. theory, however, expressed by some persons, that n return to federal control of printing oapcr was needed because ^ "trust or cartel controls nett'sorinc prorinctiott and price, probably in combination with big ctt\' publishers anrl chain newspaper operators.'' Chandler said tirese critics <i!so charge big city publishers and chains with freezing out mdcpoji- deiit one-city publishers. "This condition Is serious, it (rue," )i e snjil. ''Tjicre is a lack of facts to support the charge. There are no exact ilgjnres on the mortality rate of nowppapers, large or small, sin:c •th e last government census 1 of 1WO.
