A. In a t address Here yesterday it morning before the state newspaper Institute. A a Quot in years ago most of the questions Hick we had to handle were of Long standing and we were All Reasch Wahly familiar with them Quot he declared. Quot today we do not even Kow the facts of the problems upon Whoso solution so much depends. A we Are still groping our Way in meeting the innumerable new questions which Are arising before us in manners and morals and economics and taxation and development and government. How Are we equipped to offer leadership in dealing with these matters Are the newspapers of the South competently manned for the extraordinary work ahead of them in these extraordinary times Quot a of us Here present know colds that develop into persistent coughs and colds Lead to serious trouble.

Adv that they Are not and Here among ourselves it May be Well for our souls Well for our newspapers Well certainly for the Public that we should make the confession and consider candidly its implications. Quot since 1916 the newspapers of the South generally speaking have shared amazingly in the South a growth. In Many instances it is True the country weeklies have suffered severely but on the whole the newspapers of the South have prospered during this period As never before. Scores of them have known for the first time what it was to make Money. Some of them have become Rich. They have doubled and trebled and quadrupled in size. In not a few respects they Are wonderfully improved. But As yet they have not qualified for the new leadership that is required of them and in this respect they Are vastly inferior to the newspapers of the South of fifty years ago. I Ara not saying this by Way of criticism understand but i am stating a Plain fact As plainly As strongly As i can. What has happened has been this until ten years ago the newspapers of the South were Seldom Money makers. In the average newspaper establishment the editorial outweighed the business management. The newspaper was a Public institution and took itself seriously As such. With the changes that have taken place in the South the newspapers As business organizations found Tomsel a for the first time in Many cities confronted with the Opportunity to make Money. That was All right and More than All right. It was Fine that it should have come about but is it not a fact that in the Zeal to improve the new opportunities a very Large number of newspaper owners have shifted their major interest to the business end the expense of the editorial end i want them to shift this interest Back. Quot the news that goes on the sporting pages is written and edited by experts. Of How Many other news departments of the average Southern newspaper is that True How Many reporters can you name who could write a Story about such matters that would have any special value How Many first class reporters do you know of any kind outside of sports Quot the men can be had. All of us see them come from time to time. Most of the time we see them go. Why do they go because they Are not paid enough. That is the Plain truth bluntly put. In the years that followed the War Between the states there were dozens of Southern newspapers that made great reputations. They deserved those reputations because they were manned with extraordinary Able staffs. Young men who could write sought employment were trained for their work and stayed of course in Many instances because there were no other openings for them unless they went North and they did not want to go North. Today there Are other openings and the most promising Young men take them because they come to feel that journalism. On its editorial Side is a a a Blind but they would not leave if they were Given a fair compensation and had an assured career. They would stay and become a source of great Power and prestige talking and hacking Edge of Roler on desk. And i is in tweak fac. Tic a is he Oja the. So talking Bot not hacking Edge of ruler on desk. My pm a a a a i Coo it kit this a 6-0-0 a a a c a a it m a a Ano Cook to Cai a a by <ditx-fc3 rc5rnt Al nos to the newspapers they served and a great Good in their communities. A they would bring to the newspapers enormously increased leadership. We hear not a Little about the decline of newspaper leadership but it does not decline where it is really exerted. Make it competent and the people will Welcome it gladly As they have always welcomed it. Quot for the first time in years the newspapers of the South Are coming to be in position to build for themselves organizations on the editorial Side which will enable them to do things for their communities and for their Section which in the past they were not in position to perform. We talk a great Deal about the South about the sentiment of the South about the South As a Section. But who today Speaks for the South is there any longer a Public opinion in this Section if so who makes it the i newspapers used to keep in close j touch i Quot a one another. All the j important papers exchanged with i All the other important papers and the exchanges were read. They Are i read no longer. The readers of the average Southern City will probably learn from the front Page dispatches of a big fire or a murder or something of the sort in another Southern state but they have Small Chance of finding out what their women to meet in naw capital More than 300 to gather for Industrial meet n.

The car Toons which give them a slant upon Public affairs More powerful per haps than any written word Are nearly All made by Northern or Western artists. And so it goes. Is this to continue and become More and More accentuated i Hope not. It will be tremendously unfortunate for the South if it does. I Hope that As they Prosper increasingly More and More Southern news Pap 3 will see this that they will feel their obligation and Rise to thei a Opportunity. Quot one of the finest things in the history of newspapers it seems to1 me is the fact that from the earliest times the men who conducted newspapers have uniformly recognized their responsibilities to the Public. They did this in Many notable cases where they were Only accidentally in charge of what we j now Call the editorial conduct of the newspapers with which they were connected. The history of the press is full of instances where i Job printers issuing newspapers Only As a by product of their printing plants found themselves involved in situations where great Public rights were at stake Andi they maintained those rights be it said to their glory in the face of every danger to their property and j to their persons. Newspapers in i those Early Days when they did so 1 much to establish human rights did not have behind them the splendid traditions which Are ours today. Those traditions Are our Pride and Spur us on when As now we have before us the largest Opportunity and the noblest Challenge j that the press of the South has its easy to forget to phone your order for Coal but it certainly is uncomfortable to be without a fire better phone today City fuel co.
