For the encouragement and inspiration
of its own carriers, The Times-News here
with prints a letter written by Adolph
Ochs, publisher of The New York Times
and The Chattanooga (Tenn.) Times to
the carrier boys of the last named paper.
This newspaper hopes the carriers will give
this letter careful reading, and then cut it
out and keep it for future reference; and
we also urge all readers of the paper to
give consideration to Mr. Ochs* message t>
the carriers of the Chattanooga paper. It
is as follows:
- “I am proud that I began my newspaper career
as one of your guild.
' “Sixty-five years ago, when I was a boy 11 years
of age, my first acquaintance with a newspaper
office was when 1 was given a newspaper route on
tie Knoxville Chronicle at Knoxville, Tennessee.
“I had to appear at the office at five o’clock in
tie morning, ihc > • r i »i ;e \ om the press un
folded, and the carrier' -oys had to fold the papers
by hand. Th ie a. t ifty papers to he delivered
on my route, ana 1 ad to walk nearly four miles
te deliver them, thf; < i fr breakfast and thence
♦o school. For this task I received 25 cents a day
($1.50 per week).
“I did my work conscientiously, and in wet
weather I saw that the paper was put in a dry
place. In those days we had Carrier Boys’ Christ
mas Address, and, so excellent was my service on
my route, I received a nice little Christmas present
from every one on my route. One of the notable
recollections of those days is that Father Ryan, a
Catholic priest at Knoxville, who, perhaps, had been
a carrier boy in his boyhood, gave me two dollars
as a Christmas present.
“My work was not a matter of choice, but it
was a welcome little contribution to my family’s
needs. I thus learned to work, be helpful, and to
do my work conscientiously, and thus attracted the
attention of people who gave me good-will and
encouragement. Now, as I look back upon those
days, I regard it as a fortunate episode in my life
that I began so early to work and be helpful to
my family.
“I wish you all joy in your work. Be interested,
and do your work to the best of your ability.
Choose good company, and try every day to learn
something useful. Respect yourselves and you will
win the respect of others. Do not spend your time
idly looking for opportunities. There is a better
chance at opportunity if you apply yourselves in
dustriously to your task. Do nothing that will make
your mothers ashamed of you, and the chances are
that opportunity will be looking for you, and come
to you unsought and unobserved.”
An interesting statement made by Mr.
Ochs in the foregoing letter is that in re
gard to the work he did for the Knoxville
Chronicle as a carrier and the amount he
was paid for it. No doubt Mr. Ochs’ wages
were as good as the average for that time,
but he made much less than the average
newspaper carrier is able to make today.
In fact, a careful compilation of records
for the country shows that 600,000 carriers
now employed by the daily newspapers of
the country make an average wage or
profit per week that is a little more than
double what Mr. Ochs was paid in Knox
When The Times-News’ new rate for
the paper by carrier goes into effect the
carriers of this newspaper will be able to
do better than that. If they are good busi
ness men they will be able to make more
than the average for the United States.
That is not what could be called poor pav
for boys in a little North Carolina town, in
view of the fact that the average carrier
wage referred to is based on rates paid by
all the daily newspapers in the country.
Even in a city the size of Asheville a car
rier must do a much larger amount of work
than is done by any Times-News carrier.
Much of this extra effort results from the
handling of larger newspapers.
The Times-News carriers are business
men, working for themselves, under a reg
ular business agreement with this news
paper. The amount they make depends on
their personal efforts in a large measure,
and on their success in securing prompt
payment from subscribers.
The Times-News urges all subscribers to
deal in a fair and honest manner with the
carriers, pay them promptly, and expect
and require first class service.
Adolph Ochs, the little 11-year-old car
rier boy of Knoxville, became the foremost
newspaper publisher in the United States
in the present day. Thousands of other
carriers have made records as citizens and
business men that are just as honorable
and praiseworthy as the record of Mr.
Ochs. Thousands of former carriers are
numbered today with the leaders in almost
every business and profession in the coun
' try.
Adolph Ochs, the millionaire publisher,
is not ashamed to publicly admit that the
small sum he earned as a carrier was
“a welcome contribution to his family’s
needs.” He says the experience taught
him to be helpful and to do hi* work con
scientiously, and that this won friends and
started him on a successful career. No
carrier of today should be ashamed to fol
low in the footsteps of Adolph Ochs; all
who find it possible should be proud of the
opportunity to make their contribution to
the family welfare, or to help themselves
financially; and, taking their stand on the
platform of principles which has controlled
the life of Mr. Ochs, each one should be
interested in his work, should consider it
a privilege to carry on in a respected and
important business, should respect himself
and win the respect and confidence of
It was Adolph Ochs who said not long
ago that “The Ten Commandments have
not been repealed.” We commend the
statement to the carriers of The Times
News and suggest that they place a copy
of his letter to the carriers in a Book each
one of them should possess, alongside the
Moral Law.
9 -—-—- " *>
During the lean months now behind us there was,
for a brief time, a trend on the part of some of
the larger concerns toward more radio advertising.
Events have followed which prove conclusively,
it seems to us, that that trend was the result of a
hysteria which gripped the advertiser and prompt
ed him to try anything and everything as a possible
curb to decreasing business.
The results have been disappointing to the ad
vertiser, for more and more we find the large con
cerns drifting away from the radio and back to the
newspaper, the time-tried and proven leader in the
production of results from advertising.
As a matter of fact, the radio has shown a heavy
loss in advertising during the past few months since
the economic light of day has begun to dawn, while
the newspapers have shown a marked pickup in
lineage over the nation.
• Finding that the radio could not produce the de
rired results in times of stress—could not, in fact,
even favorably compare with the newspaper in ef
fectiveness in combatting the depression-enemy—
the large advertiser is leading the parade away
from radio and back to the printed sheet of the
daily paper. '
One hears less and less advertising programs on
national broadcasts.
The radio is primarily an instrument of enter
tainment, and as such, we believe, will eventually
be forced to find some means other than advertis
ing with which to finance its operations.
The advertriser has come to realize this more
and more. He knows that a radio listener as often
as not turns his dial away from a given station as
soon as the entertainment part of the program has
been completed; doesn’t want to be bothered with
hearing a lot of fantastic claims about Cutrite Cor
sets or Baby Blue Kath-Saits from the silver tongue
of an elocution expert.
The advertiser has begun to think. And it hasn’t
taken any deep concentration on his part to arrive
at one important fact:
They can’t tune you out of a newspaper!—Tho
Gastonia Gazette.
The mishaps that have marred the James Gordon
Bennett balloon races should prompt the abandon,
ment of contests that serve no useful purpose and
are as out of date as would be speed contests by
men mounted on tho old-time high-wheel bicycles.
The start in the balloon races was made from In
dianapolis a few years ago. The people of this
vicinity recall how one of the bags drifted over the
Canadian wilds and how there was uncertainty and
anxiety for the safety of the balloonists until they
managed to make their way back to civilization
after many days.
A few years ago some of the balloons were
wrecked in taking off during a thunderstorm in Bel
gium. Each time the contestants go up they en
counter dangers against which they are practically
helpless. The bags are inflated and let loose to
float at the mercy of the breeze. The so-called
“races” are merely drifting contests and gambling
with fate.—Muncie (Ind.) Star. -

Stories Of Raids To Be
Kept From Public Un

tors here and throughout the
country are displaying much in
terest in an experiment in gov
ernment censorship of prohibition
It has, been undertaken by
John S. Hurley, assistant direc
tor of the new division of inves
tigators of the Department of
Justice it has just been learned.
Hurley has told administrators
throughout the country to give
no news whatsoever to the press
“directly or indirectly.”
In special cases the order per
mits the district executives ^to
submit a memorandum to the
Washington headquarters, setting
forth what is desired to be re
leased as news. Then, if Wash
ington grants its approval, the
news may be released for publi
cation; otherwise it will be sup
Conceivably several days might
elapse before the news of im
portant liquor raids, seizures and
other activities could penetrate
the governmental red tape, and
by that time the news probably
would have lost its edge or would
have leaked out through some
other source. Under the new re
strictions the men in charge of
the various district offices are
not allowed to use their own
judgment in making public eveii
the most trivial netfs item. All
n e w s p aper representatives in
quiring for stories arc referred
to the Attorney-General's office
No official explanation was
forthcoming as to whether the
censorship is intended to mask
prohibition enforcement activity
or the lack of it; or to prevent
publicity which might be con
sidered embarrassing to the re
peal movement, or to stop local
administrators from making an
nouncements which their Wash
ington superiors would prefer to
make themselves.

Diplomatists Puzzled By
Coming Visit Of Aide
To Angora
BUCHAREST, Sept. 12. (UP)
I—In diplomatic circles, great
significance is attributed to For-)
eign Minister Nicholas Titulcs
! eu’s visit to Angora in October,
the exact purpose of the journey j
; however, is surrounded with
! mystery.
Many think that Titulescu
and Tevfix Rushdu Bey, Tur
nkey’s foreign minister, are go
l ing to broach the arduous ques
tion of a “Balkan Locarno.”
Others object that, although Ru
i mania would be interested vitally)
in such an agreement, Turkey
appears to be rather disinter
1 ested.
It seems that Turkey has
abandoned her claim to Balkan
territory and to a role in Balkan
Therefore, it seems that most
of the Balkan problems—the
tension between Bulgaria and
Jugoslavia, the Albanian ques
tion, the Dodrudja feud between
Bulgaria and Rumania, the Hun
garian problem—will remain in
the same state after Titulescu’s
ferences in Angora as they have
been before.
There is one possible excep
tion. Turkey, a neighbor of both
Bulgaria and Greece, is interest
ed in good relationships between
Ihese countries. However, rela
tions are definitely bad now as
the Bulgarians resent that the
Greeks had taken their only
Aegaean port, Kavalla. As the
population on the northern Ae
gaean coast, now under Greek
domination, is Macedonian, there
is jealousy and friction, result
ing in pcriodiccal international
It is expected that Rumania
and Turkey will make a defi
nite step to bring about a re
' conciliation.

WASHINGTON—That promised
showdown on profiteering in
cotlon goods probably isn t com
ing off. .
The textile manufacturers who
wanted a hearing at which they
could protest the process tax on
cotton changed their minds when
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace
called a hearing which would have
delved into prices and profits.
Anyway, that’s the interpreta
tion privately placed by Agricul
tural Adjustment Administration
officials on the industry’s request
for indefinite postponement until
they could present more authori
tative data as to the effect of AAA
and NRA on manufacturing costs.
* * *
AAA was all primed to open
books of the mills and to put
the industry on the defensive
with evidence of pyramided
prices which in some cases went
up 200 per cent on retailed tex
tile items.
It possessed official formulae
used for computing the process
tax and NRA labor costs in goods
which it believed represented an
overcharge. (NRA charges were
figured at two to three times the
amount of the process tax factor.
Experts here can’t compute the
NRA factor—as they can the
AAA factor—without access to
the books.)
AAA will be surprised no end
if the industry asks for a hear
ing again. It will call the hear
ing itself if it believes profiteer
ing is continuing. But it be
