The degrees of enthusiasm of its mem- aership and the amount of the organization's influence in the community depends in great .part on how well its activities are known (assuming, of course, that they are worthwhile and competently conducted) to newspaper .readers of the community. Both Logansport newspapers want to print the news of your club. They must judge stories by their importance and interest to its readers who are not members of the club, and in accordance with the demands upon its space by other news and features. But we will always co-operate with you to the fullest extent possible. By following these suggestions, you will be able to do a better job for your club, and you'll insure our co-operation and enable our newspapers to provide better and more interesting coverage of local activities. 1. Keep a date-book, so you will have time to get all the pertinent details, names of persons on the programs, etc., and be able to send the announcement in WRITTEN FORM in advance, to the newspaper. If you must telephone, remember that an editor usually is a busy person. Make your conversation as brief as. possible. Spell out any name,or word which might be misunderstood. ' 2. Read news of other clubs, and keep informed on what they are doing. Anything your club does is of less interest if it does the same thing some other club had already done earlier or better. 3. As you write your notes, or story put yourself in the place of a reader. Would you yourself be interested in the story as you are writing it, or the club happenings which you are reporting? Better-no story, at all about the club's meeting than one which'll give non-member readers pr absent members the impression that it was dull and stuffy. 4. Be sure the copy you send to'the newspaper embodies the five W's- WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY. WHO—Who presided, who spoke', who became new members, who made newsworthy proposals, who reported accomplished projects of community import, etc. Give complete names, spelled correctly. WHAT—Give the organization's name,-in full. Initials may be misleading, or may be the initials with which some reader isn't acquainted. And "Daughters of the American Revolution" always is a more dignified way of referring to the organization than DAR. WHEN—Be exact as to time. Not just Tuesday, but Tuesday, October 3, at 2:30 p. m. Not "last month," but June or-July.* Not "next year," but 1957. .WHERE—The exact meet-ing place. Not "the regular meeting place," but "the ballroom' of the Hotel Phoenix," or "the home of Mrs, John Doe, 717 .W. Miller St." \ WHY—If there'was a special meeting—why? 5. Get your story in while it's still news. To be news, it must be. NEW. Don't delay needlessly and then wonder why the story doesn't appear in the paper. 6. If your story is an .advance announcement of a coming event, limit it to the main points. You must keep in mind that whenever the club puts on shows 'or which admission is charged or otherwise promotes anything with a commercial aspect, the news paper many consider your "story" as advertising matter for which payment must be made. It often lappens that promoters whose sole intent is to make money for themselves, give a club a small percentage of the proceeds to serve as a "front" for a commercial enterprise, in the hope oi evading advertising expense and taxes of legitimate business. The club itself may be well-meaning in its sponsorship, but the newspaper cannot make any distinction under such circumstance between the club and any other commercial enterprise.. 7. Keep your story as brief as possible. Don't repeat yourself by saying the same thing two different -ways. Don't use unnecessary adjectives. 8. Help us to print all' names correctly. You'd be annoyed to find your name misspelled! It does happen, because newspapers are often misinformed. See to it- that the names you submit are correct and complete. Mrs'. Jones is Mrs. John J. Jones, NEVER Mrs. Mary Jones. If you aren't sure of the husband's 1 first name arid initial check .with someone who' knows for sure before you send it to -the newspaper. It's a good idea to keep an up-to-date club roster harf- dy for checking purposes. If a name has an unusuall spelling—such as Agness instead of Agnes, or Smit instead of Smith, underscore it, to indicate that the variant spelling is correct.. In 'lists of names use those of married women first with single women following. 9. Type a story that is to be sent in on one side only of a standard-sized sheet,of typewriter paper. Don't use small, fancy notepaper. Double space your sentences. Start several inches down the paper, to leave room for headline writing and other type instructions for the composing room. Hand-written copy is hard for editors and printers to read. It produces inaccuracies. However, - if you must hand-write items, print all names in distinct capital letters if you can. 10. Write your club's name, your name and your telephone number in the upper left hand corner of each page, so that if there is any question about your story, the editor can contact you quickly and easily. 11. If you have a photo to accompany your story, try to submit it a day or two in advance of the publication date. Remove frames from pictures before sending them in. Write the name or names of the people on the backhand indicate if the photo is to be returned. We do have photographers and are interested in taking pictures of news-worthy events. Don't phone and ask for a photographer when you have a regular meeting. An outstanding speaker, an outstand- in club event or project, etc., is worth a picture. 12. Do you know the deadlines of your papers. The Pharos-Tribune society editor must have • all society items by 9:45 a".rn. on the day of publication. The Press society editor begins work at 2 o'clock and will accept items for the next morning's paper not later than 9:30 p.m. We want to be unbiased and fair. Help us by not asking any services not normally performed for all clubs. M you do your job right you won't heed any. As- publicity chairman for your club, you've .been given a specia 1 responsibility. Make it your busi ness to find out all you can abou how to do the job properly. Don' leave it to the newspaper persons with whom you must deal to do your job for you. Their job. is to get NiEWS, not to be press agents for any club or person. DR. 0. L. BRAUN FOOT AILMENTS Reg.
