The Making Of A Newspaper
FEW PERSONS have any clear idea of what it means to run a daily news
paper what the investment is, what the organization is, what the cost is,
and how the newspaper industry ranks in a community as compared with,
other enterprises. A few facts ahout the details of the El Paso Herald's business
will be of general interest, helping to answer many questions that are asked
from time to time, and to clear up some of the mystery that always surrounds
a daily newspaper in the mind of the public.
More capital is invested in The Herald than in any bank in El Paso with one
exception; more than in any department store pr mercantile house, wholesale
or retail, with one exception; more than in any manufacturing concern except
the smelter, the cement plant and the Pearson mills; the number of employes is
among the largest of any establishment in the city; the payrolls, running into the
thousands of dollars per week, place The Herald among the very largest empjoyers
of labor; The Herald is one of the very few local enterprises that actually bring
more money into town from outside than they send out (The Herald brings money
into town for outoftown circulation and advertising, and sends out of town for
paper, ink, special supplies, news service, eta, somewhat less money than it
brings in a remarkable and unusual record); in proportion of circulation to
population, The Herald is almost without an equal in. the United States; The.
Herald is nationally recognized as one of the 100 strongest newspapers in the
United States; The Herald's business has multiplied by 24 in 14 years, or, in other
words, The Herald has grown six times as fast as El Paso city has grown a
fact which, to the business man, clearly indicates how energetically the outside
field has been cultivated; nearly all the earnings of the past 14 years have been
put back into the concern to improve the newspaper and the plant, and nearly
half of the total capital has been brought in from outside; The Herald pays
nearly l-200th of all the city and county taxes paid locally.
The income of The Herald is derived from advertising, circulation, and rents
of the building.
The fixed charges are rent, interest; city, county, state, and federal taxes;
fire, casualty, boiler, elevator, and plate glass insurance; depreciation of plant;..
and depreciation of accounts.

"With a pleasant smile Mr. Leverton
changed his seat, and bent down to fol

read the 'personal" announcement cu

"Will the person who reseued an el

Mr. Greenhill added voluminous de
tails, wnen his memory failed, a hint
with interest by business men, showing how very complex the business of a
daily newspaper is, and how many channels of current outlay have to be pro
tected. A newspaper is unique among all business institutions, in one particular:
that it must run along substantially with the same production costs regardless
of whether business is good or bad; the newspaper must be kept up to the same
high standard winter and summer, short months and long months, dull seasons
and good seasons. Almost any other business institution can adjust its outlay
to its income, but a newspaper cannot practically all its production costs are
in reality "fixed charges," and the perpetual problem is to make the income
measure up to the necessary outlay imposed by the standard of the paper, which
can never be allowed to fall by the slightest degree, and which is subject always
to sudden and unexpected increases of cost, but seldom or never to any decreases
of cost A very much greater percentage of the total receipts, as compared with
prices of advertising and subscriptions, is being returned to subscribers and adver
tisers today in the form of actual betterment and increased service, than ever
before, and this proportion of earnings returned to patrons tends steadily to rise:
in other words, Herald subscribers and advertisers are each year getting morej
for their money than they ever got before.
The principal items in the production cost of The Herald are as follows; busi
ness, men will be particularly interested in the thorough analyzing of department
costs to enable the management to keep in close touch with all details:
