THE ROQK ISLAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, JTTLT 31, 1912.
DON C. SEITZ OP THE NEW YORK WORLD TELLS SOME
INTERESTING TRUTHS TO THE NATIONAL
CONFERENCE AT MADISON, WIS.
Madison. Wit.. July 31. A paper pre
pared by Don C Sietz of the New York
World was read at the national news
paper conference today. Mr. Seltz wu
not present. His paper wa as follows:
"The flirt question I am asked la:
How Is news service affected by the
constantly Increasing cost of the newt
paper plant. To begin with, this It a
false promise. The cott of the news
paper plant i not conttantly increas
ing except as the newt valtre of a pub
lication makes It necessary to expand.
Newspaper machinery, while expen
sive primarily. Is very enduring. We
have presset in The World office that
are now 25 years old and still do an
honest day's work. We have had lin
otype machines hist successfully 'for
20 years, and the monotype machine,
furnishing at It does frsshfaced type
-ery day for our advertising columns,
doee away with the old waste of re
newal at the type foundry.
"Newspaper plants are expensive
or.ly relatively. When measured by
efficiency, while costly la the Initia
tive, are extremely economical from a
standpoint of production. Otherwise,
how would It be possible to produce
the marvelous on-cent newspapers of
today such as dominate the field In
New York and Chicago. The cheap
new paper is only cheap because Its
mechanical oo -ordination la economi
cal. If the great plants of the metro
polltsn diillins look expensive from the
standpoint of dollars and cents, they
are warranted by the renults attendant.
The framcr of the question should re
member that the news service was on
the ground ahead of the printer and
his device, it is the expansion of the
rews service that, has made the ex
pensive plant possible and profitable.
"There Is no -hep and easy way
left, of course, to s?art a great dally,
but thla I only because the field Is
so thoroughly well guarded ly Its pres
ent poMiu-HHors. It 1h the ot of the
newft service and r.ot the cost of the
plant that make starting a newspaper i
difllcult. Three-fifths of the cost of
operating a modern daily are what
might ! :h!ld overhead charges. I
mean by th;it, flews service, editorial
writers, pictures, cablegrams and the
various bureaus. The mochaolcal bide
only represents two-fifths of the re
mainder. I do not know a single pro
gressive newspaper that is not con

NO other iron of any kind has
the advantages that the Hot
point Electric Iron offers you. No
other iron will save so much time
and energy and money will do
so much to lighten your work.
It makes ironing a pleasure.
Yes. ironing becomes a pleasure for every good
hounewife, whether she does her own Ironing or
has others do it. will rejoice to see the hard work,
the beat and fuss and bother of Ironing day wiped
out. And In its place solid comfort. There is pleas

he liht sock. with a flexible cord. Simply screw
the plug into the lamp socket and turn the button.
In an Instant the iron begins to heat, and in a
couple of minutes you can begin your work. From
that time on you can Iron steadily, no matter how
hy the work. No running back and forth. No

expenditures. The wise editor Knows
that it la the news that sells the paper
and not the press that prints it.
"The second query: How Is the ser
vice affected by the Increasing pro
portion of total newspaper revenue de
rived from the advertisers. It is only
affected by the extent to which the
various revenues enable It to spend
more money for newt and better edi
torial service. Only the common prac
tice of selling newspapers for nne
cent has had the effect of cutting down
the proportion of the revenue. 1 should
say that In a normal, energetic estab
lishment, the advertising would be
about two-thirds of the revenue, leav
ing about one-third to come from the
circulation. The margtn of profit on
a one cent newspaper is of course
very slight over the cost of white
paper. This does not apply, however,
to the Sunday psper which Is an Im
portant adjunct of all the large dailies
and Tihere the circulation profit re-
malnt an extremely Important factor.
But the advertising, it must be re
membered, come only with the news
paper's success as a newspaper.
"The theory that limber liars in the
guise of advertising solicitors and cir
culation fakirs go out and impose upon
the business public and thus secure
the advertising which appears daily
Is another delusion. Advertising is
about the closest kind of a business
proposition. The large department
stores spend their money In exact per
centages laid against the value of their
wares, usually about three and one
half per cent of their gross buMness.
Experience haB taught the good adver
tiser that he m;u-t create a current
of Interest and he has learned that the
only way to do this Is by intelligently
presenting his values and stock to the
public in a cenvenient way.
"There is Jio greater convenience
than the dally newspaper which Is
widely read and it Is relied upon to fur-1
nish these daily bulletins of business
thereby saving research and sign-hunt-
ing by thr busy public. Perhaps the
framer of the question had In mind
the thought that the increasing adver
tising in some way molds the opin
ions, news service or editorial energy
of the paper. This is another foolish
thought. If there is merit in propor
tion, and I think there Is, the more bus
iness a newspaper gets, the stronger
n becomes; more powerful and more
j Independent. It Is giving value re-
I celved to the advertiser and does not
truckle to him or dispose Itself to
secure his business. In short. It com-,
mands and does not obey.
"If the theorists would think logical
ly for a few minutes, they would see
the correctness of this proposition.
The strong newspaper acquires its
power on a basis of pirhlic confidence.
The advertiser finds a constituency
which has faith in its newspaper much
more productive of business results
'nan a sutisMizea sheet coula possi
bly find. Not only do advertisers not
run the policy of newspaers, but they
seldom or never try. I have been for
20 years In the business office of the
New York World, and I do not recall
a half dozen attempts on the part of
advertisers to influence it and of these
attempts only one was a matter of
public concern about which there were
two very fair opinions. We did not
accept the advertiser's view. It is some
five years since I have had an adver-
User ask me to do anything even in
hit personal Interests, unless perhaps
to print a wedding notice, or the men
tion of some social affair and in this
1 rather think the editors treated hlni
more shabbily than if it had been tome
one else. Good editors are not inier-
f, a s-rh nn rre.it newspapers, if
they were, there would be neither good
editors nor great newspapers.
"The third question asked: How is
news service affected by the non-journalistic
interests of the capitalist own
er. This is one of the shibboleths that
come piping regularly out of Wiscon
sin. In my wide range of newspaper
acquaintance, I do not know any capi
talist owners, nor do I know any suc
cessful newspapers that are not owned
by themselves. It Is not possible for
a newspaper to be successful, nm in
a private interest. The newspaper is
a public concern, and when it ceases
to serve the public, it ceases to be a
successful newspaper.- A good many
men have tried to start newspapers or
have bought newspapers with the Idea
that they could In some way manipu
late them to a private interest. The re
sult has always been disastrous.
"The very capitalists I have known
who went into the newspaper to help
out a poor editor lost their money,
and were sorry they ever played with
the game. It ou-ght to be clear to the
average mind that a newspaper It the
one thing in the world that is run.
In the open. It prints what It has to
say where everybody has access to
It on the open page. The newspaper
costs very little money, and the poor
est man or woman finds it within his
or her reach. There is no excuse at
all for anybody being deceived by what
appears on the printed pages. More
over, in no business or profession is
there such rivalry as In that of making
newspapers, and if the editor or capi
talist proprietor should try to mask
something, he would soon find It torn
away and laid naked to the world.
"This Wisconsin cry about capitalist
ownership Interests me mildly because
I would like to know what it is based
upon. Where are the capitalists? Where
are their interests? Who are the edi
tors whose minds are perverted? What
reporters are compelled to write
against their will? It would be in-
tereRtine to have a list marie for fur.
ther analysis. The peculiarity of the
newspaper lies in the fact that it more
than any other is an unshaped article.
I mean that It must conform to the
news. It cannot remake it or remodel
It. It can and does make mistakes
but that is the limit of its possibilities.
The manufacturer can turn out an
article of a peculiar pattern while the
newspaper can only print what it finds
and can only convey the result to
its waiting public. The editorial opin
ion It seeks to build must grow with
fact and reason and not by mere as-
sertion. In short it is an advertising
, medium in presenting news, issues and
trade The newsnnnor run hav. nn
other purpose and be a newspaper and
if It is not a newspaper, it will die."
Speakers before the conference
turned their attention yesterday to
the question: "Is the newspaper read
ing public getting all the truth it is
entitled to?" Problems of escaping
outside influence and avoiding a dis-
; tortion of truth were presented. Mel
ville E. Stone, general manager of the
Associated Press, was one of the
speakers last night. He saifl in part:
"Every one familiar with our work
knows that it is ut'erly Impossible for
any one in the service, from the gen
eral manager to the least Important
agent at the most remote point, to
send out an untruthful dispatch and
escape detection. You may write a
i biased or inaccurate statement for a
newspaper and "get away with it, but
you cannot do it with the argus-eyed
And the handle is always cool, no matter how
long you use the iron.
And the heat Is used in ironing hardly any given
o?T to heat up the room. Think what this means
it means you can iron in comfort.
And ths point of the Iron it alwayt hot enough
to do pressing, which it not true of any other iron
of any sort.
We are very enthusiastic about this iron we
could go on talking about it by the hour. We hope
that we have said enough to show you what a
spleudid thing It would be for you to have one. We
hope you will come in and atk for more informa-
. tion about it. We will gladly demonstrate it any

milliont who read the dispatches of
the Associated Press.
"Obviously then, the very magni
tude of the Associated Press work
tends to make truth imperative. It cannot
be used to "grind any one's ax.' to
serve any special interest, or to help
any political party or faction or pro
"If you hear a man whining that the
Associated Press it run in the interest
of this party or that you may put it
down that what he wants it not fair
play, but a leaning hit way.
"But the Associated Press Is some
thing more than a mere town gossip.
It is the great forum in which the vi
tal questions arising in our democrat
ic form of government are debated,

close of each presidential campaign
for years both candidates have borne
public testimony to the Impartial
treatment they have received at the
hands of the Associated Press?
"la this way the report of the asso
ciation becomes the 'melting pot' of
American puollc opinion.
"Finally, the business of news gath
ering has a distinct moral value. The
association has an enormous Influence
on American life. Adopting the ter
minology of our medical friends, We

"Given a correct environment, we
leave nature to do the rest. If with
the truth before them the people
choose to go wrong that is their affair,
not ours. We furnish an atmosphere
of truth which necessarily purifies
the cesspool of corruption. We fur
nish the light which flames out into
the dark places and makes impossible
'treason, stratagem and spoils.'
"If eternal vigilance Is the price of
liberty, then the ceaseless vigil of the
Associated Press must have very high
value in our republic."
