They abide with the wishes and orders of those in political power. CT^OT-C In other lands, there are a relative few newspapers, .whose circulation blankets the nations. The American press is different. Not only does the United States have newspapers of large circulation and international prestige but tins nation also has thousands of smaller newspapers., dailies, and weekly which serve their communities in a manner in which no other medium can. freedom of the press is often misunderstood. It does not mean that newspapers have the privilege to print anything they desire. Rather, it is the privilege of the people to enjoy an untrammeled press. Newspapers have a responsibility of defending and advocating policies which they consider vital to the public interest. ... With a few exceptions, they have been faithful to this Observance of National Newspaper Week, Oct. 10-16 can focus attention on the fact that newspapers of the nation are guardians of freedom. . - | gre (Continued trim Page One) Grain Show Champs Are Selected Here There were 75 entries in the corn, wheat, oats and soybeans show held this weekend in conjunction with the Greensburg Home Show.

The deviation from an "ideal" district of 55,600 population ranges from 15.6 per cent under-represented (Grant-Wabash) to 4.5 per cent over-represented (Shelby-Rush Fayette). Reduce Representation The (.proposed new Senate districts as shown on the ManMn map would reduce the fractional representation Marion, Lake and Vanderburgh had been given on the earlier plan through joint districts and give each its nearest whole number, Marion 7, Lake 5, and Vanderburgh 2. Vigo, Clay and Sullivan would form a stogie district electing 2 senators; as would Madison- Hancock-Henry and Delaware- Jay-Randolph. Allen, DeKalb and Whitley would comprise a single district electing 3 senators, instead of Allen electing 2 and then'joining with Kosciusfco and Whitley for a joint senator, as the old plan did. St. Joseph and Marshall would be in one district,' electing three senators. This had been one of the eight districts listed in the federal court appenoUx as special joint districts having a large and a small county but had not been sipecifically painted out to the opinion as unconstitutional, as was Marion-Morgan-Hendricks.
