KNOW YOUR OWN NEWSPAPER The following gem on the newspaper business was given- before the Santa Ana Rotary club by C. F. Skirvin, editor of the Santa Ana Bulletin: A newspaper is an institution organized for profit, and often a disappointment. It is the only business in the world that advertises its mistakes. In the old days all you had to have to start a both can- In the divisional contest Republican and Democratic didates for long: and short terms in -the Territorial senate are assured of nomination.

Rothenburg. SWIMMING MAKES CHAMP OF ONCE SCBAWNY TOOTH NEW YORK W}—PameU Callahan, winner of the 200-yard breaststroke championship in Eastern intercollegiate swimming toruna- ment at Annapolis, was a scrawnj little youngster of 15 when he entered Columbia university four years ago. He went out for swimming just for the exrcise and now as a senior is one of the best breaststroke swimmers in - the country. He was defeated only once in dual competition this year. As a reward for winning the Eastern intercollegiate title his coach, Ed Kennedy, entered Callahan in the National Intercollegiates at Ann Arbor March 25 and the STOCK REPORTS (New York, April 7) Juneau - 15 Aviation Corp. — - 2% Bethlehem.

An illustration: A constituent who had been referred to, uncomplimentarily, rushed into the office and exclaimed: "Where is that son-of-a-gun of an editor? I want to kill him." The accommodating office boy requested the plaintiff to have'a chair, explaining that five other men were ahead of him. Newspapers contain good and bad news. It I was the fellow in San Qeuntin who was tojiave his : hanging date set wlKT&itfr* *No^noose is good news." A society editor is'a'l^l'wlfose-ability to use superlatives often gets her the job which belongs to Eome hard-boiled old maid. The brightest man on the paper is the columnist- He never made but one mistake, and that was when te started to write a column. A newspaper interviewer is a man who gets his story without conversing with the subject. I remember an attempt on the part of a reporter to interview Mrs. Skirvin relative to my journalistic discrepancies. Her reply was that she didn't want to talk about me—she had to live with me. Her flippancy was the germ for a half-column of domestic disturbance. Modern newspapers are being absorbed by the comics. I have read a few that were funny without them. The newspaper business is the easiest to operate everybody knows how to run one. It is important to know one thing—what to leave out instead of put in. There is a serious side to the newspaper, xou discover it immediately after you invest your'.money - But for real relentless grief, irritation, exasperation, soul-destroying perplexities—get yourself a newspaper and your destiny is determined.
