Br HAL BOYLE "' (Editors note: The following column was written for the SOth anniversary issue of the Newton Iowa,. Daily Newt, which agreed it was too good to keep to itself and released it for general" use.) Fifty years is a long time in the life of a man. . In half a century a man can fall ·victim'to fallen arches, dyspepsia, cynicism or delusions of grandeur. Over that period he begins to feel himself coming apart at the seams. So do many governments, because governments--like men-are susceptible to interior ailments. But after 50 years a good news- .paper is just beginning to hit its stride. · A newspaper, like the conr.nvumty it reflects, is the sum of those who make it--and something more. It has a vitality of its own. There 'is no reason why good newspapers and good towns should fail to grow together endlessly, even though . those who make them must grow "old themselves, arid die. The one thing a newspaper must · have to endure Is freedom. America has had a free press ever since its .founding. That is .the inly reason why today it has the ·greatest press in the world. ·· It has been free for so long that, most, people in this country take their newspapers for granted. It would come-as a dramatic shock to them it some day. they.awoke to find their newspapers could print only items that had been approved by a government censor. * Yet this is a dally fact to millions of people living in dictator- ridden countries. They are told ex. actly what the dictator wants them to know--and nothing more. What is it like to live in such a country? It is always to live in doubt about what is happening, what really is going on, not only in your own country but in .the . rest of the world. Truth and propaganda become intertwined. Rumor and gossip ride the land. The final result is that no sensible man can , afford to.believe anything he reads or hears. All he can ultimately be sure of is how the dictator spells his name. don't print that." They write the news as it happens. Often the best reporters are those who refuse to go to the big cities. They .would rather ;m»k* their careers on.newspapers in the community of their choice. One of the greatest, William Alien White, won world fame:in Emporia, Kan. It proved a better springboard for him than New York, Washington, or Chicago did for scores of ..his contemporaries. ,"' ··'^·'.; The size of » city ! has ' never b?en a n - i n d e x to the quflity .'of its newspapers--or its newspaper^men. Some of the'best have, always been located In small or medium-sized communities. A man likes to feel that' wha ie has invested his- life in wa; vorthwhUe--and will .go. on. Al- hough. the 'average reporter doesn't spend much .time talking about t, that is one of the privileges of newspaper, work--it has continu- ,ty of life. You may wear 'out, but :he newspaper will go on, serving its community. ; ; ., . All surveys today show that American newspapers are of higher quality, are read mors. widely than ever before. They probably will continue to be, so long as they remain free to be the voice of the people. In such countries newspapers that try to remain free are ruthlessly suppressed. A bought partisan press then voices, parrot fashion, any nonsense those in power decree ,it shall print. This daily barrage of misinformation may Btir the older generation to rebellious disbelief; but it twists to its own sinister purpose younger minds growing up, minds that never had a chance to sift truth from falsity because they never were exposed to truth. A'free world press is the only real hope to world undemanding; · .» bought press is the grer.test barrier. It it this liberty to tell the truth that makes American newspapar- · men, by and large, so fiercely proud of their craft. The mayor, the governor, or the president can't 'tell them: "You print this--you DOROTHY DIX -- CONTINUED FROM PAGE TOUR either the first or second letters your problem could have been answered by personal letter.- You will, be making a big mis take if you let your wife have he way about your young daughter Since the child is happy with yoi and her sister, and the mother' instability is no indication tha she can give the youngster care keep the child.

Seven »y JACK CARLISLE The J. M- Hutchens were get- ing- ready to go fishing when 1 passed their place last Wednesday. Mrs.. Hutchens said that-they 16 : a,lot of their fiahing just a mile or so down the road-^at the diddle Fork bridge. Mr. Hutchens old me the next day that they might as well have stayed home and fished in the rain barrel. I have found that there are days ike (hat, '·' , : . , ; ' . ; Dave Dudley told me that the ooacco he ordered from the woman tobacconist wasn't any good either. He is keeping it, as it does not look as If he is going to do any etter, but he is figuring big on the crop of tobacco that he · is raising. . , · , . . ' · ' · . . RFD Seven is how : 67 miles long Those two additions last week raised the mileage two-miles. Anc I would like to thank · all those people for the swell job they, die of putting up their boxes. I could not have done better if I had been doing it myself. It is certainly a big help when the boxes are the right height, grouped when possible, and are easy to get to. I have some that are not so good That was also a good job.lhat'the Chandlers did .on overhauling tha group of boxes in front" of -theli house. The women folks did mos' of the work, but I think the mer gave them a.'hand with some o' the heavy nailing arid sawing. : rion't have room to mention al the nice folks who do try to keep their boxes up in good shape but I certainly do love you for it. Virgil Ramsey is doing a good fencing job on his'pla??. on Williams Mountain. Those locust posts he is using will' be there when Virgil and I are long gone. Virgil's son washout there with his air gun one day last week sort of keeping the snakes off Virgil. All that bulldozing around the Malcom Shofner place is the beginning o£ a new house. I think the bulldozing was for the basement and a better driveway to the highway. Mrs. Frost was a little put out with' the Dudleys for not letting her know th«t they were having Maxine's tonsils removed. But I asked the Dudleys about it and they said they didn't want Mrs: Frost to be worried; so they didn't tell her until Maxine was all right. When Ruby Lollar set those eight duck eggs she named each egg for one of her neighbors, last week six of them hatched, but her very nearest neighbor, Mrs. Shaw, failed to produce. There was another failure, too, but Ruby has six nice ducklings. And while we are brr the subject of fowls, I would like to mention one of Mrs. Dess Chandler's guineas. When she started laying, her eggs air had the letter "C" engraved neatly on one end. Mrs. Chandler isn't sure whether. this is for the purpose of identification or whether this particular guinea wants everyone to know when she lays her egg. Terrapins arc a Httle' ing out of hibernation than most of the wildlife I find along the route. I didn't see my first one until Wednesday of last week. He was about halfway between Sulphur City and Hicks and was malting his way slowly north.. Red Johnson was back last week. They moved to Norman, Okla., last summer. I wouldn't say so but I believe that money I gave him for the mule.paid for his move. Mr. Johnson is a fine gentleman, though. He told me that he · would still be' out there on RFD Seven if it wasn't for his children who are working and the ones that are still in school. They have bought a small grocery store and filling station over there, but Red says he isn't working too When I passed the Kidd mail box Saturday, Mr. Kidd and Billy were just getting ready to come to town after Mrs. Kidd, who had the weekend off. Mr. Kidd says he has to have a little home cooking every now and then..Mr. Kidd baked up a, batch of cookies one day last week but Billy suddenly discovered that he didn't like cookies «ny more. Then they decided to five the dog a nice treat--but the dog wouldn't eat them either. Mri. D. F. Brook* left * note for me in the mail box Monday telling me to keep their mail until Wednesday as they were away fishing. She didn't say where they were oing; I haven't seen any of them since they got back so I don't know whether they caught anything or not.
