A new copy reader had just taken
his place at the copy desk of a St.
Louis newspaper last summer, when
the head of the desk handed him a
story from Columbia, Mo.
Quickly he glanced through the
story in search of obvious violations
of news style. He found none. The,
story was terse, straightforward,
smooth-reading. His pencil hovering
over the copy, ready to swoop down
on a mis-spelled word or an error of
grammar, he went carefully through
the story a second time. The pencil
remained poised. The copy reader
"headed up" the story and passed it
to the head of the desk.
Copy readers are notoriously spar
ing in praise. "That's good copy" was
this man's only comment.
Later came another story from Co
lumhia to the same copy reader.
Acrain, "That's clean copy."

asked, "Who is this man we have up
