News Print Hogs
When you read tho mamtnotli Sun
day edition or Homo Inrgo city dally
paper, do you over pnii-o to think
'hat the sUe of thu' million In ono of
the lending fnrrors In tho shortage of
news print paper? It Is quite so,
Tho publishers of many of those
big city dallies are greedy hogs.
They know It Is extremely dlltlcult
for the country press to secure suflln
lent print parior with which to put
out their limited weekly editions.
They know that if tlio country pub
lisher can not secure thu necessary
paper stock ho must go to tho wall.
Yet Sunday after Sunday they con
tinue to Issue editions so largo that
It becomes a physical Impossibility
to read them. Section after section
Is placed In the Sundny papers that
contains nothing of a news element,
and but llttlo of any practical value
whatever. Usually It Is composed
largely nt sickening slush which a
schoolboy would be ashamed to
father. It Is a useless waste of mat
erial which Is already difficult to ob
tain, It reminds one of tho hog that
roots tho bucket over In Its greedy
effort to get all of tho slop.
Some or tho city dallies have Sun
day circulations as high as four hun
dred thousand. Ono tisoless eight
page section omitted from such an
edition would furnish the news print
necessary for a weok's supply for at
least two hundred country news
papers. One such section from the
Now York and Chicago Sunday pa
pers alone would supply over two
thousand country pnpers.
Ono section omitted from these
papers would hardly bo missed. It
would croato no hardships whatover.
Tho failure of two thousand coun
try papers to make tholr appearance
on press day would croato a furore.
" Tho -big dally newspapnra would
havo the people bollovo that the
shortage of newsprint Is duo to under
production. As a matter of actual
fact, It Is duo I iv groat part to tho
hogglshnuss of tho Sunday dallies.
CongroHW mnynol realize It, hut
tho tjiour.nndajY.niul thousands of
country edltorsVhavo their oyos glued
on Washington. They are walling
to see what Washington Is going to
do about it.
Congress can aid the situation vory
materially by placing a roasouablo
limit on the size of Sunday papers,
varying according to population.
This will not infringe upon tho
legltlmatu rights or tho dally papers.
It will protect tho rights or the coun
Alroady somo country papors havo
suspended publication because thoy
could not senuro tho paper nocessnry
to rvrlut their editions. In tho race
or such conditions, to permit tho

present practice will Inflict incalcul
able damage upon the country presH.
