This press is not is entirely free to voice its opinions—good, ‘l bad and varied—without fear of interference, and with the single thought of the advance- ment of the community and people it serves, which is its own interest; otherwise it fails. To be complacent free and strong press is to invite the fate of other nations, for enemies of democracy start by attacking the truthfulness and reliability of the press, and servility to unhealthy influ- GHCGS. It would be bad enough for any com- munity to lose its press, and still worse for the country 'if its press was muzzled and printed only what a cruel Or even a benevo- lent dictator might order, for this spells the doom of the democracy, and this idea is re- pugnant to all Americans. There are many signs of enemies at work, and many false and spread to undermine the freedom of the land; and the newspapers now have another job out out in warning the public against the insid— ious move to rob them of their cherished free- dom of speech and press, Whether the threat comes from below or from on high. . in Shelton, NATIONAL NEWSPAPER WEEK, OCTOBER 1-8 There are ten thousand of the smaller newspapers of the land speaking for the 75¢.

The old. Chautauqua idea failed because it turned commercial and booked mediocre talent. He reviewed the rise of several singers and musicians in the past on stage, screen and concert, and the part the manager plays in making possible their appearance for the pleasure of music lovers in the smaller cities, as well as in bringing out young talent to public notice. He explained that publicity had much to do with the success or failure of an as- pirant, and that it took years to develop the talent the public will pay money to hear and see. He also mentioned the starting pay for appearances as small but some ‘of the leaders new demand- a thousand dollars a song. Pointing to the trials of the managing agents for artists he mentioned Helen Anderson, thel Negro singer, who struck popular favor when she was denied a pub- lic hall in Washington, and of other colored singers who are barred from many hotels and sleepers in travel, and play to un- The agents are 'always on the lookout for new talent and have given many a budding singer a boost in aud- itions and a place on radio or screen, but the job is a hard busi- ness like everything else and one must be exceptional, hence the percentage of failure is very high.
