This has left scores of smaller papers out in the cold, Approximately 1,000 of these smaller papers have written to Senator Hurray urRinf: that tho Senate ainall business committee probe the npwM monopoly. Oh the other hand, the bip newspapers, magazines and trade journals wcro dead opposed. One of their lobbyists, William L, Daley of the National Editorial flfwocintion (actually a lobbying front for the bis trade journals), was busy ns a bird dog trying to kill the investigation. Another probe opponent was Senator Taft, whoso family owns the prosperous,, Cincinnati Times-Star, and who rfcts enthusiastic political backing from his close friend Henry Luce, publisher oC Time, Life and Fortune. Another thin;r which worried the biR boys were certain facts which llii! small business committee planned to expose regarding post orllcc subsidies to bif; magazines. Tho committee was planning to •<ho\v, for instance, that Time, Life n rul Fortune received an annual subsidy from tho U. S. Post Office department nf 53,000.000 a year, while, most dally newspapers get ony a pittance of post office subsidy from second-class mailing privileges. Another thinfr that worried tho bljt moguls was the Senate commi;- too's discovery that the Post Of- flcn department had never made any analysis of the statements of nuivtiiiapur a.nd magazine ownership filed with It quarterly in or- del 10 enjoy aecond class rates.
