This co-ordination would be the function of the news services-- by distributing the news dug out by individual newspapers-- and . Mr. Marshall asserts that if the purpose of the anti-trust suit against the Associated Press was . intimidation, the goal has already been reached As examples he cites Leon Henderson's resignation, concerning which the news services gave £*to e f«M «? XCUSfe , ° E " a lame baek " whereas radio told the real reasons; also Fulton Lewis wL S h"S abuse of rationing- regulations in Washington, which press services, he says, failed The Chicago Tribune pounces upon this complaint and m an extended "lead" editorial urges the press associations to follow the Tribune example in "interpreting" the news dispatches that it sends out. * * # f MOW ONE of the practices of the Tribune which *' makes it a stench in the nostrils of every orthodox newspaperman is this very habit of coloring" spot news in unsigned dispatches Let us impose on the patience of the reader for a moment to pofnt out reporters are but human (even the best of them. They see events from different angles but the good reporter strives to keep his own slant or bias out of his story i£ he is writing spot news. In good newspaper practice if he wishes to air his own opinions or interpretations o£ the events he chronicles he signs his dispatch If his newspaper wishes to do likewise it does so in its editorial column or in signed columns written by staff editors or specialists. Recent years have seen the Vise of syndicated columnists, able writers, often well informed and honest commentators, who lay thick layers of interpretation and opinion upon the bare skeleton of spot news. These folk have many followers put theirs is a personal relationship. You can take what they say or leave it. Often on the same page and on the same day you may read two directly antagonistic interpretations Good practice and necessity for the most part =onfine the output of the great press associations whose clients represent widely varying interests and opinions to an unbiased and non-partisan reporting of the obvious and verifiable facts without interpretations which invariably invade the realm of opinion. * a s /pHE SAME distinction is presumed and should . n e - \f radio r£ P°rting. The newscast should be strictly spot news uncolored by the personal opinions or prejudices of the newscaster "Commentators" like the writers of signed 'columns are a law unto themselves. What they say may be gospel, but just as frequently it is not Recently we had an opportunity to visit with one of the greatest and most brilliant of the present day crop of American newspaper war correspondents His private opinion of some of the best known radio commentators" made interesting listening But radio is new. It has been handling news' only a few short years. And the shortcomings of the medium itseif-and it has shortcomings as well as advantages-- often make it hard for the listener to distinguish between what is presented as spot news and what is offered as opinion and comment. p If Mr. Henderson says he is retiring because a .?; back ' U is news that he is retiring it is news that he says the cause is a lame back You or we, or some radio commentator or newspaper colummst may think a lame back a pretty lame excuse But the charge if unproved doesn't belong m a straight news story on cither medium unless We dispatch can quote some authority who may be presumed to have a reasonable basis for such a viewpoint. h*TM fni^ years ?Bo.any newspaper office could have told you about radio reporting. Half the time of its telephone operator or operators was taken up denying rumors which had their sources MI ill considered or misunderstood radio announcements. Radio has gone far in correctin" this situation yet this very week this newspaper has had repeated occasion to deny a rumor which those who quoted it said originated on radio. 'TO Us IT'. SEEMS that the" point Mr. Marshall, me Chicago Tribune, many newspaper columnists and radio commentators, and all too large f h f . i l H°/ J h ° i cnera! public are missing in all this is that for the first time in a quarter of a century we are playing a game of life and death, not on a retail but on a wholesale basis ,,,H C " Can , ncwspapers and radio Cations are under a voluntary censorship.

PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges Grandy County io Raise Hemp Allison Tribune: First of the North Iowa counties, where hemp will be grown and processed, to attain its signup goal is Grundy county This county, made up largely of farmers of German descent, has established a mark for the surrounding counties to shoot at. These farmers realize that it is necessary for the government to get an abundant supply of satisfactory fiber for military and essential uses. Hemp production is a vital war problem confronting this nation, and is as important, government experts tell us, as rubber in our war production. We hope that Butler county farmers will give like cooperation in the government's program. In Answer to Frank Pierce Ottumwa Courier: If holding practice blackouts as against that possible day when we'll have a real one is silly, then the whole defense system of thc United States is placed in a ludicrous light From the president of the United States down it has been said repeatedly that the success of our participation in this inflicted war depends as much on the home front as it does on the battling front. And no small part of home effort is the project of civilian defense. Oil and Ukraine Grain fjrfCewanee 111., Star-Courier: The near-collapse *r Hitlers drive for oil and grain in southern Russia has threatened the whole nazi war machine with disaster. Failure to get oil in thc Grozny fields of the Caucasus has brought Hit- lers drive close to collapse. With what little fuel Germany has been able to squeeze from Rumania s overworked oil fields 'and the Ruhr *i ""? b 1 e " s " f£Lcien -nuIe front in Russia r to fight a war on a Has War Sobered Us? Britt Neivs-Tribune: Well, anyway, folks those radio broadcasts from New York, Chicago, DerVvIr and San Francisco as the new year came sounded much more like a sober minded people than anything we have heard before at New Years since the radio introduced the New Years party broadcasts. Maybe the Boston night club fire the Japan's New Won Rubber Won't Help Her Albert Lea Tribune: If Japan could hold on to her new y acquired rubbe. plantations, it would do her little good as far as American markets are concerned. Already our factories are turmn" out substitute rubber. Rubber is now being pro- 9 w n n n s ° ybeans commercially at the rate of 250,000 pounds a month. Of course Japan isn't Going to hold on to the rubber area for long! It Takes More Than Kind Words Marshalltown Times-Republican: In 1942 the people of the United States gave $9,200,000 to «TMu e - se »'e«e/, according to report of Wendell Willkie, honorary chairman of the committee in charge. If we can keep up the morale of the Chinese until we can furnish them'with bombers and guns and ammunition we will be doin" ourselves a favor as well as the Chinese. Against Concealing Bad News Ackley World-Journal: The American people would be better satisfied, perhaps, if disaster were revealed and made public when it occurs not a month or two after. «"-uis, Editorial of the Day AN HONEST PRESIDENT REMEMBER?

In fact President Hoover whose term o£ office left him unpopular with (he voters, on account of the hard times Curing his administration, never accepted a penny of his 575,000 a year salary.

From hat time on. this 20 per cent portion of his salary and theirs was returned to the treasury. But the ' GOOD HEALTH By Logan Gendening, M. D. TREATMENT OF FOOT AILMENTS ATOT ONLY the soldiers but a very large pro*" portion of the civil population are walfein- now more than ever and there must be some disability connected u-ith it, to judge from the out burst of articles both in'the professionTM! and ay press on the care of the feet. w-r£' I h- CS ' 0e T d collea g ue . Mr. Damon Runyon with his usual good sense has called attention to a need for chiropodists or foot specialists in the army, I have advocated this before and still do so. The United States army does not recognize the need for chiropodists. The German army does and the British army does and even the navy is beginning to come around to that point of view. There is an average of about 400,000 men days lost per 1,000,000 men. in the army due to foot trouble alone. The morbidity in the civil population is probably smaller, but s t i l l Dr. Clendemne enough to be recognized. Thc two largest groups of causes of painful feet are corns, bunions, calluses and bursae of various kinds; the second is flat foot. Corns, bunions, calluses, etc., arc all due to the same underlying cause. They arc a combination of a shoe pressing the skin of the foot against a bony excrescence or roughness underneath Thc bony excrescence is usually produced by Ion"continued pressure of the shoe so that the ultimate cause of both is thc same, but when any kind of corn is persistent, complete cure will not occur until the underlying bony excrescence is , removed. The common corn results from compression of the soft tissue between thc shoe and an excrescence of bone. The removal of the hardened thickened skin brings only temporary relief but by taking a few days off and removing the bony excrescence and also correcting the shoe permanent relief will result. The soft corn is caused by pressure of one toe against a projecting portion of the next Here also, a complete removal of the projection or correction of it is thc only form of permanent Tailor's bunion occurs at the root of thc little toe and is due to an overgrowth of bone caused by continued pressure such as an old-fashioned tailor made on his feet as he sat cross-legged on his bench. Dorsal bunion occurs at the root of the bic too and is caused by lightly laced shoes. If paddin.- and changing to strap shoes does not give relief surgical removal of the head of the bone is indicated. Painful heels arc usually inflammations of the bursa in the foot due to pressure of the bonv excrescence against the skin. Shoe corrections can relieve this-pressure and injection of novo came into the painful tissue will extend relief borne forms of painful heel are relieved only bv surgical operation, however. Mctalarsalgia means pain along thc ball o£ the foot at the root of the toes. H occurs almost entirely in women who wear shoes with heels that arc too high and which throw the weight on the me atarsal arches, pressing them against the sole of the shoe A return to flat-heeled, wcll-fiuin- shoes usually relieves this condition " news the radio puts out c o m e s i r o m the° aTM press associations he seems to criticize and ? bis part of thc other tenth just sirnpiy IVn'f ir,, c "Never has the white house seen a more hones .courageous, intelligent, public-spirited presi- 1 C " 1 I h , a 2,5!!?, ert H 00 ^- H= w a poor late- Pie more minutes t h c heart slows even more, as if taking ;i rest from thc effort of moving the sleeper.

Edgar Hoover to Father Flanagan both a compliment to Father Flanagan's Boys Town and a reflection of the bigness and kindliness which resides in the head G mail: "Heartiest congratulations upon thc 25th anniversary of Boys Town. Against Ibe-background of war and willful disregard for human rights--your splendid work on behalf of young men stands out iu magnificent and glorious relief. "Boys Town symbolizes to the fullest degree the Christian spirit of charity and brotherly love. It is a shrine dedicated to the cause of the less fortunate boys. "You should be justly proud of · the many God-fearing homeless young men who have departed from your sheltering care to take their place in the outside world as respected American citizens.

'"May you enjoy many more years of carrying on in your inspired work." V Sugar Substitute /MBky suspect that as housewives 'Qfyi cast about for · tile best possible substitute for that sugar which can't be had in lar^e quantities these days, many are going to decide on molasses. Like sugar, molasses is a product o£ sugar cane. In fact it's n by-product of cane sugar, with all the minerals, vitamins' and health giving qualities of the sugar stalk. In some respects, it excels refined sugar. Food experts point out that in using molasses to replace sugar m. candies, cakes and cookies, one- fourth Jess water should be used. Because of its acid reaction, one- half teaspoon of soda should be added for each cup of molasses. --V-Winter Colds MtSfS am passing along those 7 IQjS- t; P s for the avoidance o£ the most common winter "accident"--the common' cold worked out by the safety council in Chicago; 1.
