Daily Tipton Tribune (Newspaper) - July 21, 1973, Tipton, Indiana PAGE 4 Tipton Tribune, Saturday July 21,1973 Kathy Kusner is one of those **Don*t just stand there, do something** persons. First she became a champion horsewoman and a star of the big horse shows. Then she decided she wanted to race, so she sued the .Maryland Ranchin Commission for a license as a Petite New Yorker Jockeys Horses And Planes NEW YORK (UPI) — Kathy Kusner is one of those *‘Don’t just stand there, do something” persons. First she became a champion horsewcHTian and a star of the big horse shows. Then she decided she wanted to race also, so she sued the Maryland Racing Commission for a license as a jockey. Along the way, she took up flying. And today, the Kusner speed on the racetrack is outdone only by the speed of the jets she pilots. ‘‘A horse,” she said, “might be going ^ nüles an hour at the finish line. The Learjets cruise at 425 to 450 miles an hour, which would be around 550 ground speed, depending on the winds.” The idea, however, that her reflexes as a jumper and racer tie in with her skill at the NEWS FROM WINDFALL instrument panel is ridiculous, she said. Remember When? “There’s no relation. Flying is flying, jumping is jumping.” Miss Kusner, 33, is co^nlot for Executive Jet Aviation (EJA), which calls itself the world’s largest business jet charter service. She’s the first woman pilot at EJA and one of the few c»mmercial women pilots in the world. ‘’But things are changing,” said the petite rider (100 pounds). “One day people will be saving, ‘Remember when there weren’t any women pilots?’ Just as they’ll say, ‘Remember when there weren’t any women jcxikeys?”’ Miss Kusner’s second career came about because of her first. She is the only woman member of the U.S. Equestrian team and was a silver medalist at the 1972 Olympiad in Munich. During that international competition, she met Bruce G. Sundlun, president of EUA and also president of the Washington International Horse Show. “It might be fun to get a jet pilot’s rating,” said Miss Kusner, who already quietly had acquired glider, commercial and instrument ratings. She trained for jet flying at Columbus, Ohio, the charter service’s headquarters. Flies Corporate Wheels Now she’s co[xloting the six-passenger jets, mostly in the Western Hemisphere—“Alask-a, other states. Central and South * America, the Caribbean...” Miss Kusner said most of the passengers are corporation executives but the line says its clients include Jacqueline Onas- sis and Sens. Birch Bayh and Edward M. Kennedy. “I get a lot of entertainers and athletes,” said Miss Kusner durit I a visit to New York. Kathy Kusner, the daughter of a former Air Force officer now running an instrument company in Washington, D.C. makes Baltimore her home base. Through the years, she has competed at most of the ix^stige horse shows such as the Madison Square Garden’s, been in Olympic riding and jumping events in Tokyo in 1964, Mexico City in 1968 and then last year Munich. Taking up flying doesn’t mean giving up riding by any means. Miss Kusner wwks six consecutive days for the charter service and has four days off. In those four days, she returns to the Baltimore area to race.

(UPI) BY Jennifer Brown DATELINE: 'THE OFFICE— I dedicate this month to June Foster of Sharpsville, author of our “Grandmother’s Kitchen” column. June is undergoing her second week of three weeks’ intensive training here at the Tribune as my replacement. A glance at what used to be my waistline will remind my readers that the Browns are anticipating another “blessed event.” I will continue with some of my “Tribunely” duties but size prevents me from continuing on a full-time basis. As my replacement as society editor, June will have full control of a staff of one: herself. Perhaps it is time to reavel just what her job will encompass. Keep in mind that she is attempting to absorb in three weeks, information it has taken me eight years to accumulate. (Of course. I’m a slow learner). Last week we concentrated on re-writing news stories submitted to this department. This week we are concentrating on headline writing. Next week, following training in the areas of page layouts and photography, I will teach her the finer details of the job..such as the most effective way to escape from the snaling jaws of an angry dog while on a photo assignment; how to deal with an irrate subscriber; and how to brave the rain or ice-slickened roads in the foulest of weather in hot pursuit of news. Following all this training, June could qualify for the Women Marine C¿rps. Contrary to oomnoon beliefi the job is not all glamour. An article appeared in “Woman’s World” magazine recently, detailing the duties of those handling newspaper publicity. A s)mopsis might be of interest to you, the reader, who often is unaware of the awesome job of an editor: “Sooner or later almost every woman is asked to handle newspaper publicity for her local woman’s club church group or civic organization. Many women approach the job with great zeal, others haphazardly, but often the results are the same: The club announcement never appears in print, the news photographer fails to attend the installation dinna* or church bazaar, and the perplexed publicity chairman is left holding the bag. “However, undertaking newspaper publicity needn’t be a trying experience. It can be rewarding for you as well as your organization. “Bear in mind that your local woman’s editor is often a beleaguered individual, swamped with work and deadlines, and seldom has an adequate staff. But don’t let this scare you off. Ifer job is to help ^u, and you can make both your jobs easier if you approach her as one professional to another. “Check your paper’s format by first looking for “coming events column.” (In the Tribune it is listed as the “Social Calendar”). These columns usually feature a capsule description of local functions: Type of event, time, place and sponsoring organization. Make a note of notice deadlines and observe it.” (In the Tribune, the society page is finsihed or “dummied out” a day prior to publication. For example, today, Saturday, we are working on Monday’s page. If your organization meets on Wednesday, it is best to give us at least a week’s notice to insure full coverage and news saturation in rural areas). UUVCl' CONOITIONEO I EnU T0NI6HT TWa SHOWS AT ?;00 I. JOHW WHaWE THE TRHIN ROBBERS SUN. - MON. - TUES. CONT. SUN: 2:00-4:05-6:10-8:15 DeAd/ieífoFfne»Aek, METflOCOLCDR 6 JAMES COBURN mgm “Next, read the woman’s page or section to see what kind of club news it carries. Lengthy descriptions of past luncheons? What kind of photographs, if any, accompany the stories? “Remember, every paper has its own style and requirements. Some of the larger newspapers, for instance, won’t handle club news at all. Other papers welcome it down to the last detail... the flowers in the lucheon centerpiece, the club president’s outfit, and the names of all who attended the event. ’ ’ (The Tribune’s policy is middle-of-the ground. Our space is limited, so we concentrate on the nx)st important aspects of social meetings and functions. Only the names of special officers and guests are listed. It’s too easy for long list names to be misspelled. And then do we hear about it! Routine reports, such as those of the treasurer and secretary, are eliminated by us, unless they are out of the ordinary. We dc not describe the setting of the meeting or fuction unless it too, is extrordinary). “It is best to prepare a news release to fit the paper’s requirements. Handwritten, carbons and mimeographed sheets are frowned upon because they often are illegible.” Amen to that. Many articles, written in pencil and submitted to us, have faded and cannot be read. Handwriting varies from person to person, and it too, can be a problem). “After you’ve sized up the woman’s pages (Do they print telephone numbers? Cost of tickets? Do they refer to a married woman as Mrs. Robert M. Lamont or Mrs. Margaret Lamon?) and do you still have questions? Ciall the woman’s editor. Give her your name and the organization’s and tell her you’ll be handling future publicity. Ask her how far in advance she expects to receive news releases. Ask the procedure for having a publicity picture taken. If your club’s event is an important one, áie may want to run several items at appropriate intervals. “If you’re worried about taking up an editor’s time, it’s almost always easier for an editor to give a new publicity chairman a simple briefing than it is to deal with the reams of unusable material that pour into the office each week. Why is it unusable? Because: “1. It is written on tiny scraps of paper, the backs of old envelopes, in thick pencil or illegible handwriting, and either gets lost or can’t be deciphered. “2. The name and telephone of the person submitting the notice is lacking, and so is a vital piece of information, such as where or when the fashion show is going to beheld. “3. The notice arrives the da^ of the event. “4. The item is not suitable for that particular newspaper’s format.” “Incidentally, accuracy of informatiwi is a must. Double check the spelling of your guest speaker’s name. Is this middle initial W. or M? Don’t guess. It’s your job to find out, not the editor’s. If the editor spots several inaccuracies in your release, she may be hesitant to even run it. How can she be sure ANYTHING is right? “If you’ve done your homework, you’ll notice that a published news release usually puts the who, what, when and where information in the first paragraph. TTie rest of the details follow in the order of importance. “Suppose your club is planning dance which will benefit the pediatric ’ unit at your local hospital. Perhaps the newspaper will elect to take a picture of several of , the chairmen in the gowns they plan to wear. That’s one possiblitiy for advance publicity. Suppose the photographer takes a picture at the dance itself. That’s publicity too, but publidty-after- the- fact. “Instead of the brief news item or a single (xcture, you might end up with a full-page spread, so don’t be afraid to use your imagination and suggest something different. A good idea is always welcomed! “In the case of photographs, be sure you have all the information typed up and ready to hand the photographer when be (M* she is done shooting. They should not have to hang around and get the names and addresses of each person in the picture. “A point to remember is that most papers have photo requirements. For instance, some will not include more than three people in a photograph. If you know this in advance, then don’t ask four p^ple to participate in a publicity shot. “If the paper that’s publicizing your forthcoming event features primarily “action” photos, then have your club manbers ready to do something...even if it’s only a simple action like decorating the church hall or baking bread for the bake sale. Have all your ‘props” ready. “Remember...knowledge of format, considerateness, accuracy, legibility, imagination..these are the trademarks of the successful publicity chairman you can make them yours.” HAMILTON FEDERAL SAVINGS announces... 4 year ’“1,000 minimum HAMILTON FEDERAL SAVINGS '"“LOAN ASS’N. 225 North 9th Street Nohlesville 773-4871
