adulterated truth from their news
The mystery as to what the daily
newspaper really is will be made
clear to all. Already the federal gov
ernment ias taken steps to--force
publishers to tell the public who owns
the bonds and stocks ofnewspaper
compames. Once in six months this
report must be published, together
with a sworn statement of actual cir
culation. That helped some. Now
the paper manufacturers are forcing
newspapers to make public the im
portant fact that they are sold at a
loss and that they depend upon their
advertisers for profit. This will lead
to inquiry as to the influence of ad
vertising on the cost of living, and
on the adulteration of news and edi
torial opinion. Finally adless jour
nalism a free press will take the
place of a commercialized press, and
the people will come into their own.

here to. strike out the name "Nan
Patterson" from the amended di
vorce petition of Mrs. Viola Dilling
ham, wife of a medicine manufac
turer. -

the impostor as the innocent Nan
Patterson in her divorce action.

Mrs. Prescott could not have been in'
the company of Dillingham at any
time as the woman who represented
herself as "Nan Patterson" is alleged
to have been.
