COLUMBIA, Mo., May g.—(Spe­ cial to iha Democrat)—Pointing to a growring importance of pictures In the news, WiUon Hicks of N>w York, executive editor of the Aa- sociated Presa in charge of photoa and featurea. addresatd newapaper- men and atudenta of the annual Journaliam Week program here tonight. Hicks, 8on of ,T. W, Hicka, 1118 West Seventh street, Sedalia, reviewed the working details of moving news pictures parallel with news stories by wirephoto. He said picture transmission by wire had moved the photo editor from an obscure corner to beside the telegraph editor’s deik, and advised journalism students to enter the picture field. His address in part: "It doesn’t seem quite right to talk about 'Wirephoto aud Ita Accomplishments.’ This system for delivering news pictures to newspapers by wire is only sixteen months old. It has proved a lusty and precocious youngster, but it is a youngster nevertheless. It has accomplished much, but ita greatest accomplishments are in the future. XXX “Out of the creative labor has (ome the beginning, in my humble belief, of a new' form of newspaper presentation. In this presentation, pictuies assume a greater share of ivsponsibiliiy forielling the story. Ksjiecially in the has this been true. "A J evolution in journalistic treal- meni may have been brewing before Wirephoto was inaugurated. Some experts believe it was. Wire­ photo precipitated the revolution— supplied a broad line of demaica- tion between what was and what is to be. The Denver newspaper man who contrived the description of Wirephoto as "a finger of light, w riting history,” was stating an historical fact, not just a promoiiou line. Prior to Wirephoto, editors were feeling the need for a renaissance in presenting the newg because of other competitive news disseminating media. Wirephoto planned by The Associated Press several years before it became a practicality, was the forceps that drew' out the new life. “January 1, 19J5 an action picture of the Rose Bowl game at Pasadena was sent to New York in eight minutes—the first important “shot” to be transmitted by the Wire- jihoto system. Weather permitting (and weather does not always permit), it would have taken twenty bouis to bring that picture across the continent by airplane. That was the Initial feat. I enumerate a few others: “Last August when Post and Rogers crashed fifteen miles south of Point Barrow, topmost point of Alaska, a missionary and a storekeeper went to the spot with the kind of cameras you buy at drug stores, their films were placed on the plane that took the bodies to Fairbanks, and, by plane relays from there to San Francisco, the fastest airplane flight in history was made between Point Barrow and the California city, a Wire* photo sending point, z g x “The Duke of Gloucester and his bride were snapped by an Associated Press photographer in Loudon, and three hourg and foriy-acveu minutes later the picture was received at Los Angeles. This waa a dual transmission job —Wire- jihoto and radio; radio from London to New York, wirephoto throughout the United States. “By China clipper aud Wirephoto, pictuies of the Japanese revolt at 'rokyo were received in New York thirteen days after it occured. A jihoiograjdi of the reoccupation of the Rhineland hy German troops reached San Francisco the tame day the story broke. Mrs. Titterton was slain in New York and the pictures traveled along with the story to newspapers offices. “I could recount other records established in the pioneering months just iiassed; others are iu the making: they are being made now as 1 speak. Sometimes they astoni.'ih even the editors who operate the Wirephoto system, and those gentlemen are hard to shock. We check the time factors m the servicing of a particular picture; we find that we have done some* thing never done before. For example. twenty-one minutes after a certain baseball action picture was snapped, it was filed on the wire. Try taking a picture sometime, scarupeting with it five miles to the office from the ball park, developing and priming your negative— and putting it on the wire—all in twenty-one minutes. The mere thought of it should give you a w 01 k-oui. “Sending photographs by wire is by no means a new thing. In Berlin last winter I visited Dr. Arthur Korn at hig laboratory home and he showed me prints of pictures transmitted by wire in the early D chi ’ s . DA'Vt'lopinent t>f the fumla- lueiital process began iu the nineteen! li i»-ntiiry. Dr. Koiii was one of the pioneers, and while his jiittiiies admittedly did not have anvTliinc like the quality of Wire­ photo. thev were excelieni for their lime. “Until three years ago thara war« occasional tranBmiaaions by tba old telephoto process. A lelepJioto was a rarity, hut while llier^ was a thrill, am! j>eihaps an extta edition, when tme was received by a paper, usually the phoiographic auaiuy Wilson Hick* wa* exceedingly bad. A telephoto was vhhied largely because a paper pi'eterr'ed wliat freiiuentlv was an indistinct »mear to no picture at all on a big story, and because of its ‘‘tfeak ’ valm*. x x x “Ninel ecu t hi it v five saw the news photograph u.sed tt«(iuently as the ba.sis lor extra edition.s. Seldom had this been possible before, For the first time (except possibly in isolated cases) pictures were used to make ujr entire front pages of both standard size aud tabloid newspapers, suljstituting for all type except headlines. Confucius taid one picture was worth a thousand words. That often-rejreal- ed observation was given last vear a fresh meaning for the newspapers; today the picture reached a newspaper office while the big story Is coming in; the news picture often takes precedence over the news-woid. The first comprehensive test In the competition between pictures and words came when Post and Rogers were killed; it continued through the Flordia Keys storms of last fall; is continuing —will continue, x x x "Being a picture man is a simple job. Of course, a picture editor should know' a good deal about photography, including its chemistry; he should have all well developed a news sense as a city editor; he .«hould know engraving, matting, printing, processes; he must be able to tell a photographer what to get, and see that he gets it—and .sets it first. That’s about all there is to picture editing. In other words, a photographer is a reporter and a picture editor is his assignment man. x x x “'I'he As.sociated Press maintains a staff of photographers in the key news centers of the world, and has picture correspondents where- ever there are news correspondents. In the United States there are AP regional news photo editors in .New York, Chicago, San Francisco, I.os Angeles, Kansas City, Washington, Atlanta and Boston, They di- lect the news picture gathering activities of the organization. In addition there is a corps of caption vvriters. mat editors, artists, dark room attendants and others. During the recent floods, a vast collaborative set-up accomplished the picture coverage. Photographers coverged on the watery areas from Boston, New York. Washington, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago. Louisville and other points. Operations were condu» fed simultaneously ill thirteen states. At one time fifteen planes were in the air delivering pictures to Wirephoto sending stations. "These transmission points are in twenty-six cities^ the netvvork reaches from Boston to l^os Angeles and from Minneapolis to Dallas. The inachine.s are incredibly compact and simjiie in oiieration, once you understand the principle of photo-electric cell action. They are sleek and efficient - all you have to do is To wrap a photograph around a cylinder and start the works going. “The finest machines, however, are Uvseless unless your photographer get the pictures. The idea is to obtain photographs and get them to the sending stations as quickly as jtossible. This need has brought about a commoner use of the airplane as obviously the best means of transport for such a purpose. The airplane no doubt will continue to play an important part in picture gathering, but The Associated Press has created a prot- able Wirephoto transmitter which is simplifying the delivery of pic- turei to those sending stations. "This transmitter conists of two cases which one man easily cat- ri*-s. On its cylinder is placed a four by-five contact print of a picture which automat {.ally becomes an eight by ten twice the original size—in transniission. 'i'he portable operates wherever a telephone line extends, and the possibilities of the machine in getting pictures to the network wuh greater celerity are readily apparent. If a picture is obtained at Goodwrin, Arkansas, the photographer and portable go there; the jdctures are tak^n and sent, by tne same man. to the nearest principal Wirephoto point.

This portable is a product of the reseerch laboratory of the Associated Press. “New* pictures are a voluminous subject, and I regret that 1 can give you in the short time 1 have only a high-spot sketch of the workings of the AP’s news photo service. Before I conclude, there are two additional matters about which I should like to tell you. “Wirephoto—which, after all, ia simply a m^ne of tranamitting picturea and a bandy term for designating pictures so tranamitted to perform its function most eb fectively. Its basic function is to illustrate the daily written newa icport by providing pictures along with stones, simultaneously. Some days the spot pictures are hotter than other days, but of course every day there are pictures which demand, b\' their own importance, that they be moved by wire. “There are other interesting aa- pscts of the picture getting bmi- ness besides the obtaining of "hot spot stuff. ” One of them is the taking of feature pictures and feature pictures no longer mean photographs of three-legged chickens or bathing girls. “In the last few years, especially ^ in the last year, there has been a| pronounced increase in expérimenta-i lion with feature subjects. The! movie cameia, adjusted to take action strips, and the minature, or so-called tandid. camera, have had a large part in this experimenta- i ion. “Kuropeau countries, especially Germany, have contributed a noteworthy share of interesting series pictures which tell a story by the tise of a number of pholographa of one subject. This idea has been taken up iu a relatively small way in the United States, and a good many editors believe it will be adopted widely within the next few years, x x x “I leave you with the suggestion that things definitely are happening in the news picture game. If the young man wants to get into an active branch of newapapar work, he would do well to coBsidtr It. “It would appear that America is in the throes of learning how to use a carmera as an artist uses a brush: to depict life in a more realistic way than life itself, on the theory that art improves on life. I do not mean to say America is going arty in its photography; I emphatically do not mean that; 1 mean the camera is simply piercing deeper, doing a more thorough job, finding picture material where it had been overlooked before; digging out more vital subatance. "We have been content to get a picture of the President singing a certain bill. Now we want to bring the bill to life by photographs—to put the drama of resettlement, for example, on paper ! w ith a camera as well as a type- w l iter. "If news pictures of the resettlement program weie complied they would tell the story of this social and economic move more graphically perhaps than anything short of the reality itself. Over my desk in the last year has passed a stream of resettlement pictures wrhich have formed a telling pancuama of what the government has been trying to do. The news camaraman doesn’t specialize in train wrecks and fires altogether any more. Social and economic changes is being recorded with continuity—a kind of move in installments, and intelligence is demanded of the photographer in 9 correspondingly greater degree. "The smaller paper’s candid cameraman may get the corner druggist waiting on a prominent customer, and make a hit in tomorrow’s paper. Or tomorrow’s ten- strike may be Barbara Hutton’s baby, radioed from London. The ramera may show you a war, the birth of a dust storm, a lioness and cub at play or a day in the life of a rhoius gi i. "We are in an a'^e of inquisitiveness. We have ^»quired the speed which prcLets, with worried brows, ?aw coming when I was in the University of Missouri. How* we have moved! The year I was born a special train wgs engaged to carry Corbett-Fitzsinimons fight pictures from Carson City, Nevada, to San Francisco. The regular train was beaten by several hours. The feat was a nine-day wonder of the American newspaper world. When we look back, such progress takes the breath even of those of us who have been through the change.
