"Art" on The Day Book.
"Art," a monthly magazine, edited
by Howard Vincent O'Brien, pub
lishes the following editorial appre
ciation of The Day Book, under the
heading "A Newspaper Experiment":
"There was a time, not very long
ago, when all newspapers espoused
some political party, when not only
their editorials expressed their politi
cal faith, but their views were col
ored to second it The result was a
dwindling popular faith in news
papers and the rise of an independent
press. But just as journalism was
beginning to shake off dogmatic
shackles, a new master was rising to
enslave it again. And that master,
incomparably more powerful, was
advertising. There are few, if any,
newspapers today that are not more
or less under the dominion of their
business management. The weaker
and more servile channels of inform
ation are candidly subservient to
their advertisers. The greater ones,
though more subtly, are none the
less complaisant regarding space
buying influence. An understanding
of the situation is beginning to per
colate through the great mass of the
people, and once more newspaper in
fluence is dwindling. Space sellers,
not journalists, are the best paid and
the most important members of a
newspaper staff, and people are be
ginning to look behind the editor for
the animus to a newspaper policy.
Who owns the paper, not who writes
it and who owns the owner, is the
"The time is ripe for a new move.
And that move has been made in
Chicago by The Day Book. Its edi
tor and publisher, N. D. Cochran, is
an old newspaper man, having been
editor of the Toledo News-Bee at the
time of 'Golden Rule Jones' that
sweet-souled 'demagogue.' He is
conducting the experiment of an ad
less newspaper. It is small, and be
cause news is costly and its dissemin
ation in the hands of a few, it cannot
compare with the great dailies by any
Standards of material valuation. But
because it is actuated by a purpose
deeper than that of dividends, and
because it has a soul, all its material
defects and weaknesses arFlost sight
of. The cottage in which the light
of love burns clearly is not compar
able in the eyes of the world to the
mansion in which there are many
servants and no service; but in the
sight of the Lord is there any com
parison? The Day Book is a poor
thing indeed, compared to its con
temporaries, but it has something
that the richest and the mightiest of
them lack. It is indeed a voice cry
ing in the wilderness of man's inhu
manity to man."
