THE WATCH DOC-Suppose you
bought a wa.tch.dog to watch your
house and scare off burglars and
, thieves. You'd- feed the, watchdog
well, of course. You'd expect him to
know members of tfce family and not
attack or drive them off.. But you'd
expect .him to keep dangerous
characters away and protect -jyour
family. Now suppose -some burglar
would c.onre along and- throw a
chunk of meat to your watchdog and
the watchdog would run off behind
the house to eat it wM the burglar
robbedyour house. You wouldn't
think that dog was much of a watch
dog, would you? Very likely you'd
'be so disgusted you'd .get rid of that
false-alarm watchdog p.d.q.
Is there really any difference be
tween'that fool dog and your family
newspaper that will forget YOUR In
terests, the moment some business
burglar threw it a nice fat advertisement?

answer isn't to kill eold storage bu
to make use Of it for the public good.
If private owne?S insist on baing
