I " OLD TIME FRIEND 1 WRITES REPORTER I HUGH R. SCOTT OF REEDS VILLE ENJOYS EDITORIAL IN REPORTER—MR. SCOTT WAS OF THE STOKES BAR THAT MADE NORTH CARO LINA FAMOUS. The Reporter is especially pleased with the following letter received from Hbn. H. R. Scott, wtoo was of the old-time Stokes bar that made North Carolina famous with its Gleans, Bicketts Stacks, Moreheads, Scaleses, Bux tons, Watsons, etc. Mr. Scott's letter follows: HUGH R. SCOT?,* * ' Attorney at Law Reidsvitle, N. C. Nov. 11, 1340. Editor Danbury Reporter, Dear Sri Through the kindness of my friend, Mr. Robt. Hairston, 1 have seen and read your editorial, "Meeting The Champ" In your is sue of the 7th inst. It is a rare specimen of superb wit. It hits the mark, and deserves national circulation. I hope you will send Mr. Rooserdt a copy of It to be | filed with his reminiscences of , I the campaign of 1940. [ Back in the eighties and nine- I ties in the days of W. B. Glenn, |C. B. Watson, Andrew Joyce, W. |W. Mebane, R. B. Glenn and other j members of the bar, I used to at tend court at Danbury regularly; 'and I recall man/ pleasant recol lections of Taylor's Hotel aad the Peppers. I believe all of these old friends have "crossed the river". I w* Danbury, N. C., Thursday, Nov. 15, 1940 * * * (As Editorial.) OUR GYVED EDITORIALISTS. - The average editorial writer wears gyves. He writes what he is told to write. He drags clink ing behind his paragraphs, a chajn. The tradition of a free press in this land of the brave is a myth, an embossed fiction, an aerial phantasmagoria. In other words there ain't no such animal except in isolated instances. I The average editorial from United Stated newspaper offices is manufactured behind the glass doors of counting rooms. Its complexion is painted by the owners of the 51 per cent, of the capital stock, and Js shaped to harmonize with the interests of big advertisers. That is why the great newspapers of America nave,largely lost their influence. That is why the 80«edd per cent, of America's newspapers took a beating the other day by the common peo ple who have lost faith in them as purveyors of morality and truth. i Now the above paragraphs are the substance of an editorial that appeared in the Danbury Re porter some months ago in which was stated the ;frank fact that the bulk of the editors of Ameri ca no lenger enjov the glorious privilege guaran teed to them under our immortal Bill of Rights— the freedom of speech and the FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. The Reporter is flattered that so keen an ana lyst and so eminent a publicist as Secretary or ihe Interior lakes comes around practically to cur view. And while the Secretary with his re sponsibilities refrains from the candor that we enjoy, nevertheless ycu may read his significant meaning* between his lines. He says (speaking , before a group of reporters representing many of the leading papers of the nation): "The campaign just closed revealed 77 per cent, of the newspapers supporting the losing r:ide; four years ago it was 64 per cent; eight years ago it was 60 per cent." He ended with this: "The press is not free when it expresses only the views of one social or economic side of a na national issue." A week ago the Reporter reprinted an editorial from the Philadelphia Record (a great news paper which wears no gyves), a graphic history of the life and recent DEATH of a Tennessee newspaper that dared speak its honest convic tions. The power of money is so collossal, and its lamificatiDns so universal, that its influence cannot be measured. .But as long as a small minority of newspapers will dare to speak the "Truth that makes men free" therse is hope for the world. The voice of the people is the voice of God. The greatest menace to democracy is the "controlled" press that smothers the voice of the people. The sacred privilege of a free speech through a _ree press is democracy's last refuge. The Danbury people of all de nominations extend a cordial wel come to Rev. Jas. L.
