PAGE TWO BLYTHEVTLLB (AMC.)' COtTKIER NEWS TTEOttESEAT, NOVEMBER IT, I9W AtMonoging Editors'Meeting Wider Variety of News CoverageUrged TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Associated Press Managing Editors Assn. was told today the American press ought to give newspaper readers a wider variety of news coverage. What the typical American Is looking for in his newspaper is something other than police court news, said Frank Eyerly, managing editor of the Des Molnes Register and Tribune. Eyerly, as general chairman of the APME Continuing Study Committee for 1854, outlined to editors of AP member newspapers at the opening of their annual meeting ways in which his committee feels the news report can be improved. It isn't that the committee feels that too much wordage Is being given to Marilyn Monroe's domes- tic problems, or to stories dealing with New York school problems, or the like, he said. Other InfereiU Strong "What this criticism really grows out of Is a feeling that the newspapers and the press associations have too much preoccupation with the news that can be lifted from a police blotter, and not an adequate concept of American life." he said In a prepared talk. "The typical American family, we believe, has a home and some- clmes a yard and frequently a family. He and his family have interest.-! that range Irom skeet shooting to croquet, from bird watching and outdoor cookery to fine arts and gardening." Praise for the work performed by the Continuing Study Committee and by the association during the past year cnmc from Wallace Lomoe, managing editor of the Milwaukee Journal, association president. I,omoc said studies had been completed with a distinct professional polish. He was Impressed by the amount of time and effort editors had spent In trying to develop a product. Interpretation and attribution In news stories Irom Washington and from the general AP news report were discussed by Michael J. OR- do, mpnaglng editor of the Providence Bulletin and Journal, nmi by John Caulcy of the Kansas City Star. Washington Scene Cnulcy said there were three .schools of thought on the subject of allowing Associated Press newsmen to use Information which doesn't name the source and in interpreting news events. These are: 1. That good interpretive writing is nothing more man good reporting; that the newspaper owes tt to its readers to give them explanatory facts. 2. That The AP must be the reporter of the news and not the source of the news, and th»t any Icttlntt down of the bars on attribution and interpretation would be dangerous. 3. That a middle ol the ro»d approach should be followed, with each story coming from a source who declined to be named being weighed on Its news merit*, carefully checked and handled. Ogden said the greatest problems In this respect arose in the highly competitive Washington field. A young walrus will «»t about 100 pounds of fish each day.
