COMMENT On Reporting Newt It is iaevftabe that a reporter who writes o many topics should at some time or other touch oa sews reporting. We do so today because the public who reads the news also creates news, and to a considerable extent help report Jt It might be said in fact that most of the people in the county are part-time reporters on 7h« Facts. So knowing something of how reporting is done •nay help get it done better. 'The term "News" covers a rather wid field. It refers .to almost any event or condition of which the public wait* to know and is entitled ttQto «Us includes botiftJSL-.- and private affairs. BuTySre-f is where the- newspaper staff make a distinction. The staff considers public affairs as be* ing those in which the public's'- money, liberty, or welfare is involved. Coverage of public events- governmental meetings, trials, investigations—is a newspaper's obligation, and is handled al- mort exclusively by staff news- writers or correspondents. The newspaper regards this coverage, as the essesttal part of its role In maintaining a democracy. It is because of this role that the framers of our constitutione provided the guarantee of freedom of the press. But the .newspaper also reports other happening*, some of which arc as, Significant and of as much 1 interest as public . be handled, by Jtatt members. . # ;*?? "*«'t«ie distinction is this: the newspaper considers coverage of public affaia n an other It is ob» that m five staff members and the four eorrespondenta who-tundle the e news and pictures printed each day ia the newspaper cannot the wrong person or at the wrong times may delay delivery of the paper. That's why we would like to tit the elp of those who help Wo our reporting of pri- vate'affairs.

In actual operation, the central figure in the department is the news editor, at * as far as this newspaper concerned. Thfcnews editor of The Tacts ,_ Roberta Dansby. Kevery story in the newspaper, except Sporte, flows afross her desk. SI e decides how long a story should be, what position it wifi occupy on a page, what type and sue of headline st should have. -. . ' Page one is the big job of the day. Between 8 ajn. and 11 a.m. Roberta writes some copy (stories), edits all copy that is to go into the page, u- signs headlines to be written, keep* account of the stories on a "rub sheet" as they are taken back to the typesetters. By 10 ajn. she begins fitting these ' stories and pictures snto a "dummy"—* scale reproduftion of a newspaper page. During this time the editor is gathering information and writing stories. Since three hours is an obviously abort tint for writing and fitting together a nts* full of news, the material &at goes into the day's pa«e is about all that the two persons most directly concerned can handle So those who can up at 10 a-m. and must speak personally or news edltoV picnic last week By 6LENN HEATH on events he did not cover par> sonally. The earlier this information gets in, the more time then is to write it and get th* copy .set. And stories that are to go into the next days paper should be called in after today's dead* line. Between 1 ajn. and 11 a.m, Roberta and the editor are handling news that MUST go snto today's page one. During those three hours the two can talk with no one except on the subject of material for page one. But Jlmmle gamtHOB. a general aewswriter. can,'.

Afterthe U ajn. deadline, the pressure is off of the entire staff, and by noon they are weU into the work of getting towirww's paper worked out, with lest stringent deadlines staggered throughout the remainder of the day.
