Almost everyone in town ours/ Your local newspaper's prime function is to present-the news . . . honestly and fully, Thafs all.'-f4bwev6'r,'s'6Meti ! nies the reporting goes astray, when the news is printed. Some of our friends think this is amusing. Some don't. We at your local newspaper don't laugh easily when a mistake is made in your local paper. But in spite of our best efforts, it does happen occasionally. Even the editor Had to smile when this caption appeared in his newspaper under the picture of a fallen tree: The free downed of this home damaged spouting and shingles . . . it was snapped .by a violent guest. In another newspaper, the coronation of a high school beauty queen took an unusual turn when .the proofreaders overlooked this one: - • Queen fyargie White was escorted to her fhrone by co-capfains Jim Black and Frank Gruff. • There she was pre'sented with:(oses and drowned. Sometimes 'the classified ads are full of surprises, too. The young lady who ran this advertisement is ..still wishing that her friends would let her forget it: Wanted: Large well-furnished room by young woman abouf fifteen feet square. Then there was the time one of our nice Iowa ladies, trying to do her part to add to the Christmas spirit of her home city, found her efforts recorded thus: Mrs. X sef up a still life composition of angel figurines and greenery entitled, "Hark the Herald Angels Sin." So, when you see one like this: I The Rotary male quartet will sing, "I need three every hour . . ." Or this: I I qm now in position to hatch your eggs at five cents per egg . . . please remember that local newspapers are regarded by readers as a friend they can't do without, and even a good friend is bound to make a mistake once in a while. When you stop to consider that over a million inches of news are reported each week in 385 weekly and daily newspapers throughout Iowa, a mistake here and there doesn't sound too bad to some people, But, a misspelled name of a local citizen in a news story is no laughing matter... if it's about you.
