He was the first great editor. You plead for the publication of only the good and the beautiful In your favorite daily newspaper. It was an earlier people, not a wiser one, who cried: 'Prophesy unto us smooth things.' "In one of the five books Moses edited the great editor gave more criminal news, and that more graphi cally, than today'* newspapers would dare—for example, the report* of the disobedience of Adam, the drunken ness of Noah, the falsehoods of Abraham and the iniquity of the city of Sodom."
