Burlington Herald (Newspaper) - May 18, 1950, Burlington, Iowa The Burlington Herald. Page 4the magazines we hasten to make note of the fact that a the reporter Magazine is not included among the publications available at the Public Library and make even More haste to recommend that the deficiency be remedied Ere another Issue has passed. The May 8th issues the Magazine appears every two weeks is the first anniversary Issue. The fact that the Magazine has survived a year is surprising considering the mortality rate of magazines but it is downright astonishing when one considers a the reporter has been around for a full year without carrying Tow service wrecker Calls Day or Nite Call 346 body and fonder repairs a painting Thomas motor co.

Phone 1708 a single line of advertising excepting its own Brief plea for subscribers. Since advertisers have been telling and Selling Magazine publishers on the idea that magazines can t survive unless they Are jammed All the Way to the ears with examples of the advertisers Art the existence of a Magazine that refuses to go along with the scheme and still manages to breathe deeply. Is purely miraculous. To make a the reporter even More outstanding More unique More commendable is the fact that it carries uniformly excellent material the reporting in it is Calm and reasonably unbiased but occasionally makes a Point when one should be made. A the reporter so reporters frequently differ in their opinions of the information they bring in and the Magazine solves the problem by printing both sides commenting editorially itself when the need arises. As an example of this two sided approach we might mention the article a the reporter carried a couple of months ago on the situation in indo China. One reporter held the View that american policy in indo China was entirely Correct in supporting Bao Dai the Leader of the to called Viet Nam group. Bao Dai is the representative the French have supported right along since he came Back to the country his absence resulted from a slightly non anti japanese attitude during the War. The alternative to Viet Nam is called Viet Minh and is led by Kissinger a smeets4a/t 6th amp Spring ice Cream a cigarettes Beer lunch meats a groceries Miller 6r0cery Central and Walnut Blackhawk Beer $2.29 Case qts. 25cj plus Deposit Sinclair metered fuel Oil service Sinclair refining co.

The answer to american policy was provided soon after when another reporter said that following our present line is a Means of undermining whatever advantages we might have in Southeast Asia. Bao Dai is no More than a horse player Boozer and Chaser of women was the report and to offer him to the indo chinese was to throw the indo chinese right into the hands of the communist led opposition. It was entertaining to see two opposing views on one subject appear in the same Magazine within the course of a month. The reply was not held Back until the original statement was forgotten As is so often the Case. Indo China after All is considered by Many people As the real key to the whole situation in Asia if we lose it we might As Well Mark off our influence throughout the lower part of that continent. Dealing with it from the Points of View of reporters on the spot and both of the reporters forthright in their opinions and thoroughgoing in their fact gathering is an admirable Way of bringing out the straight dope and nothing could be More important if indo China is really As vital As it seems to be. This is the second time we be paused to plug a the reporter and we intend to do it again later if it seems necessary. The appearance of a really competent Magazine is a big thing these Days and go unnoticed by anyone concerned with the Way things Are.
