Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - December 9, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Kokolsky pressures newspapermen great and Smau old timer and Novice All face this one problem pressure to put things into a newspaper pressure to keep things out. Most of the time these pressures May be ignored with impunity. There Are occasions when Hie heavy hand of Friendship or the ugliness of a lawsuit goes to work on a newspaper or a reporter who dislikes to Yosr a Friend or make an enemy. But this has become an increasingly Complex and confused society and one meets All sorts of people who immediately Call you Friend and discuss the intimacies of their private lives with you. An editor once complained that i go to too Many parties and therefore have no time to read Early victorian poets. Actually i do not go to enough parties. One should always know How the other half lives. By the other half i really mean a very Small fraction of the american population. These people live in new York Hollywood Miami Brach Palm Beach Las vegas. They Are few in number although they make a big noise they might be called Rich but a Bank statement would prove that in another generation the inheritance will be Small indeed. Many of them go in for multiple marriage. In a manner these people have an influence on Public opinion because they Are Mobile. Each Day is filled with luncheons cocktail parties flirtations often referred to As Romance Sand elaborate dinners ending in a visit to some night club and to bed when the boredom has run itself out conversation is for laughs just As morals Are for those who Are too Young to know or those who Are too old to remember laughter must be spontaneous otherwise it is Only noise. I recently attended a party of this kind during which from 8 . To 11 30 p i found the conversation was restricted. In fact Only those could Converse who sat next to each other there was no across the table talk of any kind and while i was extremely fortunate with a partner i could not help wondering what might have happened had i been seated elsewhere. How can one really care whether mrs. A is planning her divorce so secretly that everybody knows the details except her husband who is paying for it. And Hopes to get it in time to give a presumptive heir legitimacy before it is actually born. As a sociological study such data May be interesting As an Index to the nature of a degenerating vol. 80, no. 289 it.
