HiliSHf AN ILL WIND, ETC.
Several of the IftadiKg newspaper publishers
in the east have decided to reduce the size of
their papers and after September first they
will not take back unsold copies from dealers.
It is calculated that in Philadelphia alone two
hundred tons of print paper will be saved
every week by this action, and the saving is
necessary. The publication business is rapidly
getting down to hard pan—because it has to.
Waste of any kind can no longer be permitted,
and unsold and free papers are waste. Economy
is absolutely essential these days, and the con
sumption of print paper must be kept down.
There is not at present a sufficient supply to go
around properly and the prices are quite as high
as the traffic can bear, and rather more so.
The modern daily newspaper is too big. This
complaint applies to the big city dailies more
fti*n to the output in the smaller towns. 'Yet
on occasions the latter publications have over
stepped the bounds of profit to the publishers
but high price of material has been a teacher
who laid on correction with a hickory stick,
and this procedure, while painful, has been
wholesome in results. Hereafter it is promised,
that there will be a less amount of rubbish and
more news and articles of intelligence.
And the scheme of smaller newspapers
should be a valuable education to the reporters.
Most news stories are too long. The writ
ers frequently string out to column length
what might be typed in half that space—some
times less—without spoiling the "story." The
newspapers would be better and readers would
profit if reporters were more adept in the fine
art of boiling down. It is an art to tell a story
in a few words and it is an art well worth cul
tivating. A dozen people will read a story that
commands no more than fifteen or twenty lines
where one will wade through an article of a
columnlength or more.
When Frank Munsey bought the New York
Sun he gave out a notable interview on this
question of reportorial verbosity. He said:
best newspaper I ever saw was the old
four-page Sun." The slow and difficult methods
of composition in those days made it neces
jsary for reporters to write concisely. Charles
A. Dana, editor of the Sun at that time, was a
past master in the art of condensation and in
stilled its virtues in the minds of those asso
ciated with him in the conduct of the newspa
per. It will be fortunate indeed if the print pa
per shortage compels a return to this sort of
writing.
