HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Telegraph Editor Has Ulcers and a Paunch But The World Is His Yard NEW YORK, Oct. 8. (fl>)—The average American takes the weather and his daily newspaper for granted. Both p!ay a big role in his life, but he Isn't particularly interested in how they come nbout. ' He accepts th« access t« the truth that a free press gives him as a natural right—like breathing. He Is only dimly aware of an ever- present danger: that If governments succeed in any way In gagging or blindfolding his free press his right to know what h going on will then be at the mercy of seelng- eye politicians. He will be told only what the politicians want him lo believe. That is the kind of Alice-in-Wonderlam world Hitler, Mussolini ami Stalin created, where fact becomes fancy and fancy becomes fact — and truth h a bitter legend. Newsmen aren't ordinarily given to bugling I heir calling. They like It and let it RO at that. But since this IE national newspaper week, I'd like to tell you something about a guy mere Important to you than you know or care—the telegraph editor of your own newspaper, Public Knows Two Hollywood has made the public aware of two stock caricatures in our craft—the cigar-chewing, rough- barking managing editor, and the brash, hard-drinking star reporter who Rullops into the office shouting, "Tear open the front page, chief. I got Ihe story." But, so far as I know, no movie ever ninde a hero of Ihe telegraph editor. Nobody ever built a monument to him. No grateful reader ever left him n million dollars, or even shook him by the hand mid said, "Gee, you did a swell Job today." As a mal.ter of fucL the average reader probably thinks a telegraph editor Is somebody who counts the telegrams for Western Union. Well, what does he tio? Who is he? WAR He Is the man through whom the American people get their ideas nbout the world beyond their own home town, and what Is going on in thnt world. He picks from the, mass of news that pours across his desk nil day the significant items you ought tc hove to understand the world you live In. That's pretty vital to you. What kind of man Is this, who has the earth for a front ynrd? Often he is a [juy who never left his own state but can tell you the Inslrle politics of Iran or the latest market .quotation on a Hong Kong dollar. He usually has > hobby — growing rcses. studying the life of Napoleon, or dreaming about how nice it would be to live on the Island of nail. I knew one who was trying to read the Encyclopedia Dritnnnica all the way through But he quit at volume ten after he got married. Ulcers and a Paunch The occupational diseases of the telegraph editor are ulcers, near-j slghtcdness from years of reading i copy, an expanding paunch from silting in a chair too long, and a dismal conviction that people really don't care about anything that happens mere than three doors from their own home. His favorite vice? BeKing on horse races. His greatest exercise Is ft daiij battle with the city editor. Ther. is only so much space In n newspaper. The city editor wants to (ill it with hometown news. The telegraph editor naturally wants to fill it wilh national and international news. Neither will ever be happy until .somebody invents rubber type and rubber paper. That's my pinnp-boy-of-the-week —the telcjraph editor. Some dull clay, dear reader, drop into your favorlle newspaper, for him and say, "thanks." But don't be surprised If he ilrotxs down dead. 1C there is one . thing a telegraph editor Isn't used I to—it's gratitude. (Continued Irom Page 1) U.

Rescuers pnlled the Jet pilot aboard and the plane took uncomfiTt- antiaircraft off, bouncing through ably close bursts of fire. Women own approximately 11 per cent of the land in the United States.
