The Journal Evoluting.
The day of the country weekly is about over.
At least that is the opinion of many publish
ers of large city dailies, whose high-powered
mass production, centralized news facilities,
specialized illustrated features, etc., overwhelm
the country newsgatherer and make him wish
for a place on the big city staff.
The Winston-Salem Journal has recently
shown marked improvement under the dynamic
impulses of the new owner and publisher, Mr.
Gordon Gray. Mr. Gray is a young map of ad
vanced ideas and large fortune, and he is finely
equipped by education, energy, temperament
and wealth to put the Journal in the forefront
of modern newspapers of the United States. It
is learned among his plans for the Journal
is delivery of the morning paper by airplane all
over the State, and especially in the western i
section which is essentially'the Journal's terri
tory. • . -
The Reporter congratulates the Journal, and
hopes it may reach the scintillant goal marked
In the meantime the country newspaper will
survive. We are quite willing for the large city
competitor to dominate the field of world politics,
sports, foreign wars, science, film, fun
nies, and fantastic features, but when it
comes to printing about the birth of Mrs. Smith's
twins, the colorful features of the mild night
barn partv, the details of the latest corn shuck
ing, the fact that Squire Skimp's mule died last
night, th? news that Farmer Brown has built a
new tobacco shed, and that Ugly Branch got on
a rampage and washed away a fine patch of corn
that was just tasseling into roasting ears—we
have got the goods on them.
The short and simple annals that make life
in the country, are ours for treatment, and we
challenge the big press to print about them.
But every living creature and every institu
tion and thing has its enemy.
Even the brilliant careers of the great city
dailies are threatened in the early coming years
by the radio and television.
When we can sit at our breakfast tables and
watch a screen on which is portrayed the world's
news in pointed pithy paragraphs told by an op
erator thousands of miles away, and who while
talking ycu the living image of the people
and things as they happen—then the morning
paper will be stale when it arrives.
But this new-fangled contraption surely on
the way to our breakfast tables, will not, cannot
supplant the necessary intelligence which we
mean to supply about the Smith twins, the Skimp
mule or the Ugly Branch rampage.
That's our affair and altogether ourn.
Atl-Star Performance Coming?
The news is from Winston-Salem, and is
doubted at Washington. But many people believe
it. and that the bout is inevitable.
We refer to the report that the Hon. Bob
Doughton will oppose the Hon. Bob Reynolds
for the Senate in next year's primary.
Mr. Doughton has promised to make public
his intentions before October 1.
"If and when"—it will surely be a battle be
tween giants. Both men are loved and powerful j
in North Carolina. Each is possessed of glam-j
ourish qualities that insure unprecedented gate;
receipts. (We mean, of course, that the interest,
will be large and the kicks entirely all that the (
The chairman of the . ways and means com
mittee is eminent for his patriotism, his long
nd sup9t I) party record, his unimpeachable in
?grity, 11is political astuteness and his faithful
dherence to his chief.
On the other hand, the Junior Senator is a
ote-gettor of amazing effectiveness. He has
omo'Utnes been called a clown, but this sobri
uet was doubtless bestowed bv those who de
nair of ovz-r Venting him. He has been charged
/ith being i'oiif* of kis': ing lovely ladies. But this
THE DANBUBV RKPORTER
| sin is so universal that it will be difficult to
.whittle down his majorities by so untenable an
| objection. He is the ideal of uncounted thou
sands of mountaineers if not by multitudes of
sand-fiddlers. He's got the personality and
the pep, plus—the elan and the naivette that
attracts and holds the imagination. And then
when he will cross the country in a rattle-trap
Ford, bareheaded and without socks, stopping
everywhere to shake hands and eat turnips
it's not much use to go on with the fight against
him. And then, too, he has been the constant
friend of F. D. R. and his policies.
If we were asked to compare these two birds
;in their well known characteristics we would say
Dough ton is an eagle with wide-spreading |
wing, while Reynolds is a swallow flashing his'
blue plumes in the ether and singing chick-a
dee-dee —all the day long.
Or to prizefighters, the chairman is a John L.
Sullivan hitting heavy blows straight from the
shoulder, while the Senator is a Corbett quick as
lightning on foot and getting away when thei
impact is about to occur.
It will be a most entertaining set-to, as all who
love the excitements and concussions of politics
j may expect.

Picnic At Cascade.

Cascade Sunday evening were as

mont, and Mis 3 Nell King, as

was in celebration of Miss King' 3
birthday; Mr. & Mrs. R.O. Palmer,
Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Joyce, Mr,
and Mrs. Charlie Martin, Mr. and
Mrs, J. C. Wall, Mrs. Frank Law

Too Much Air. j
A report almost like the. explos
ion of dynamite occurred Tues
day when a tire blew out on R.
O. Palmer's car. The automobile
had been stopped at Rhode's gar
age, and while a mechanic was
fixing a fat tire, little Donald
Stevens turned the air into the
new tire on the opposite wheel,
■giving it a few more pound?
pressure tha n it could stand.
Watches Once Small Clocks
Watches originally were small
clocks and were worn hung from
the girdle because they wer« too
large for the pocket.
