ASKS VOCAL SCHOOL
FOR SUBWAY MEN
P. S. C. Critic Wants Dialects of
Interboro Guards Changed
Did the subway guard nay "Thoitr

; really understand thnt he was trying
pronounc? Thirty-third Street?
baa been made to the Pub?
lic Service Commission that ?ubway
\ and elevated guards call out the name?
.:,(-? lv. Some: i me?, so
th? complaint runs, passenger?, paitic
iilariy strangers in town, don't know '
I where to eet off.
Joseph Johnson, chief of the transi*
bureau of the commission, who has
j been listening for ?ever?! days on re
queet to the dialects of guards on the
?ubway and elevated lines, filed his re?
port yesterday. He admitted that dif- :
Acuity ivi.s experienced by passengers
in catching the name of stations be- ,
' cause of "mixed vernaculara and
brogues" used by the guards.
"Indistinct announcements are some
I times due to a lack of knowledge of :
| enunciation and elocution, resulting
' from a lack of training," Mr. Johnson
reported. "It Is necessary, therefore,
for the Interborough to train these
: men to a common standard of pronun?
ciation and to give them some funda?
mental idea of how to pitch and throw
; their voices."
Right there it might be said, in Jus?
tice to the guards, that many of them l
appear to know how to "pitch and
throw," but that their delivery 1s often
purzling to the Ptraphanger. As ?orne j
one else suggested, wouldn't it be jolly
for the Interborough to give it? guards !
an outing, in relays, at the Tabernacle j
i in Paterson and permit them to hear
Mr. Sunday "put it over the plate"?
Continuing, Mr. Johnson suggested
to Manager Herlley of the Interbor- ?
ough "a simple rule of enunciation <
j that I? highly effective."
"Let your men pronounc? all eon
sonants distinctly and the vowel? will
take care of themselves," he ?aid.
The commission forwarded the report
to Mr. Hedley.

Those That Cater Only to the
Good Are Lonesome, Editor
Slelcher Tells Journalists.
Columbia, Mo., May 4. -Newspapers
that cater only to the good are as lone?
some as a solitsry tombstone in s new?
ly opened cemetery, John A. Sleicher.
LL. D., editor of "Leslie's Weekly," told
the journslism week delegates at the
University of Missouri this afternoon.
Hope for improvement of the press, he
?aid, lay in the elevation of the read
er's taste. His topic was "Delusions." !
"One of our delusions is that the '
public has an infallible conscience,"
said Dr. Sleicher, "and that newspapers
that follow public opinion cannot go
wrong. Conscience is not infallible. A
morbid condition may hide its infirmity
behind the Bruise of conscience and
make it an accomplice of guilt.
"It is a deiuslon to imagine that If
you see it in tne newspaper that it
must always be? ?o. In some Journals
it Is not so half the time and Is only
half so all the time.
"The publie persists in the delusion
that newspapers an- printed for phil- '
anthropic purpose?. They are business
propositions published for profit. The
public has come ti believe that the
newspaper has taken the place of the
tlu'.-itre and circus as well a* the school
und the pu'pit, and it must embellish
the news until it reads like fiction and,
tolerate a co?le of morals that will take
lha Starch out of the Ten Command-'
"The press will be what it is until
public opinion rests upon a higher
plane. The reader buys the newspaper
that appeals to him. He prefers one
that supports his political views, flat
I tors his conceits and patronir.es his
1 pr?judices. It may be inaccurnte, mis- ?.
! leading and unfair, but that makes no
difference to the man who is a partisan
