   Corona Daily Independent (Newspaper) - December 21, 1936, Corona, California                                 GINGER SCHNAPPS  —Í.K.B.—  EVER SO often I get thoroughly bumed up by someone telling me how to nm my own business. The peculiar part of It all is that usually he or she w«utd Indignantly deny the charge were it hurled.  The merchandise a newspaper has to sell ia news. And the editor is the paper's purchasing agent. Dependent upon his judgment is the choice of position for an item so that it will be of in-t'3rest to the greatest number of readers.  It is a common fallacy that an Item will be overlooked unless it has front-page position. An editor is frequently threatened with what amounts to blackmail—cancellation of advertising—if some i particular story, near and dear to the advertiser's heart, is not placed on the front page.  Conversely, similar threats are brought if there is a possibility of a truthful but socially-^lamag-ing piece of news appearing in print. Foi^tten is the fact that an editor is bound by the same law which made possible a union of states into the United States -the will of the majority.  So long as the majority are pleased, a newspaper will be well read, will bring its advertisers a food return on their advertisini? investment, and maintain an honorable pasition in community life.  But when it allows itself to i-yrget its responsibility to the majority, its prestige is lost. A goorl mme is worth far more than one lo.st advertising contract.

VoL 38, No. 2G0.  The most amusing part of it all is that those who bring in illiterate copy are the ones who insist upon it appearing word for word.  Correspondents whose material is usually satisfactory as submitted never argue when minor changes are made.  S3me day, perhaps, my temper may get the better of my good iudgment, and when an item is ilemand'ed printed as written, I'll d) so, after first inserting an explanatory paragraph that spelling, Vliction and punctuation are exactly as the person (to whom I shall give credit by name) wrote it. , Unsigned sttories are usually understood to be the work of the editor. So when an item is too bad, he patches It up In order that his knowledge »f the ESiglish language will not be tiiought lacking. This idea of giving a "By-IJ.ne" would he a very handy "out."  ""he newspaper man must sit in judgment over the news. There a»-e times when he must print the truth regardless of consequences. Ard there are times when, for the record of civilization, nothing will be lost if the item tbout a wayward girl, who might go straight If she had a chance, is laid aside.  And there are times, when at the cost of personal friendships, the official shortcomings of a neighbor must be put on page one .... times when a mother's love mu it not be disillusioned, and ti'^ es, when the editorial heart will be heavy trying to decide whiit is best and what is honest, to mint the cold facts as they are BO that the readers may know, or to .suppress them to save others from a misery that will sear their souls to the «nd of their days.  Newspapers are the media thi )ugh which most of our people gain their opinions, and form impressions.  They c£m be flaming torches of great leadership or they can be pain ghosts of reflected personal interjst, and in making its fight for the best community life, the newspapers is entitled to the same supr rt as any individual or force making the same fight.  It might be said that the future of the United States is more in their hands than in those of any oth'"'' molder of opinion, not excepting the school, the church and the university. They have a tre-mcn.If us responsibiUty.  With a breath they may destroy rèputation and blast opportuni!" for the citi2!en.  And they may, if they will, drive out the crook and the grafter, thn hypocrite and the pretender They may make clean the fronti-.teps, or they may compromise with dishonesty and become betra-' crs of their public.  A Uo deliberate iri a newspaper is one of the most damnable things in the world. It is as though it wern being shouted from housetops by ten times ten thousand tongues.  Nations will never be enidianger-ed a;i long as the streams of newsT^iper expression are not checkei, fouled, dammed up, or ridden with the typhoid germs of .se'flah interest and personal spleen and prejudice.

Arms Embargo Upheld Today  Supreme Court Holds Legislation Void  WASHINGTON, Dec. 21, (UP) —The admini-stration t ■ 'Viay won the approval of the Supre-ii.' Court in a case brought to Ifl.st, the validity of the pro.secutiun of a group of airplane manufacturers and individuaUs, on ch'irgo.s of conspiring to violate Pf'ai-dent Roosevelt's Chaco tirnhs embargo.  i All members present, excepting Justice James C. McReynolds, ' concurred. McReynoIJK, without opinion, held the legislation and proclamation should have boi')i condemned.  The court rejected the contention of the defendants that the congressional resolution, under which the Prcsiaent acted, unconstitutionally delegated power to the Chief Eixecutive.  The ruling compelled the defendants n»w face a jury trial on charges of conspiring to .sell 15 machine guns to Bolivia.  DECISION ON i;ASE AWAITED WITH APPREHENSION  WASHINGTON, Dec. 21, (IIP) —The Supreme Court's doci.sion on the Chaco arms embargo case was awaited with apprehen.sion by State Department and other officials for it.s possible effect upon the neutrality policies of the ad-ministrati'on.  The resolution under whicli President Roo.sevelt acted on May 28, 1934, when he proclaimed an embargo on shipments of arm.H .and munitions cf wai- to Bolivia and Paraguay, participants in the long raging Chaco war, wa-s much the same as those under wlilch previous presidents levied .similar embargoes.  At that time, however, the po.s-sible affect on business of an ann.s embargo had been foreseen. Neutrality legislation, later to take form in the neutrality lact of ina."), amended in 1936, was ali'.3ady under discission. .  An indictment was returned naming the Curtiss-Wright Airplane and Motor Company, ihi^ Barr Shipping Corporation, Johri S. Allard, Samuel J. Abelow, and Robert R. Barr as conspirator.s in connection with the transaction.  The penalty for violation of the embargo was fixed by Congre.s.s at up to a $10,000 fine and a maxi-j mum prison sentence of two ycai-.s.  Instead of going to ti-ial the defendants entered la iJeniurrer to the indictment.  They charged that the re.soiu-tion under which President lioose-velt acted was an invalid delegation of legislative power to the (Continueid on Page Six)  Fear 1(50 Ih-ui in Worsi Disaster Siiu i' 1879  SAN SAI.VADOR, Dec. 21, (UP) litditf forces mobilized toil ly to cai-e for 25.000 jei.s-.iiis li imelc.s.s in lh(> w)i'.st local earthquake di.sa.stei' since 1H7!).
