The Small-Town Editor
By George Peck
In this editorial I would like to pay tribute to the watchdogs
of the nation the editors of the nation's small-town newspapers
those men and women whose journals may be small in size
but which bulk' in influence and prestige.
The editor of the big metropolitan daily, sitting in bis coitIt
fortable swivel chair behind his expensive and expansive desk
(perhaps walnut), may imagine that he is a molder of public op
inion. Backing him up he has the marvelous facilities of the var
ious Press Services; assisting him a staff of highly-paid assist
ants, feature writers, foreign and domestic correspondents, re
porters and photographers. In his press room, he has a modern,
up to the minute press capable of printing thousands of copies
per minute. His paper goes out onto the city streets to be sold
by the hundreds of thousands.
It is small wonder then, that he kids himself into believing
that he is one of a small and select group which is directing the
thought and is responsible for the subsequent action of the
But, he is wrong. The people he reaches through his publica
tion are not the typical Americans not the backbone of the na
tion. The real Americans are to be found in the smaller com
munities and in the rural districts of the nation. In the hinter
land are to be found the hard-headed, clear-thinking citizens,
the people who cannot be fooled by false doctrines, deluded by
quack panaceas, who do not subscribe to something for nothing
Ideologies, and who steadfastly adhere to sound American prin
ciples as laid down by the Founding Fathers. It is only occasion
ally that most of these people, see the metropolitan newspapers.
They rely almost entirely for their news and editorial comment
upon the local paper which serves their particular community.
The editors of the small-town newspaper, therefore, have a
rendezvous with dr-t;ny to them has fallen the task of preser
ving sound r -v.'. i.mcnt, encouraging industry, saving free enter
prise a 4 itaining the Republic. It is a tough assignment, but .
pra.i-w uj, they are measuring up to it. The editor of the news
paper in which you are reading this article doesn't sit in a hand
some swivel chair before an elegant desk. He doesn't have a
corps of expensive assistants, but in spite of these lacks, he does
give you a newspaper replete with the friendly news of your .'
community and abounding with wisdom and good, old fashioned,
horse-sense on his editorial page.

drop in on him and express your gratitude for the service he is
rendering? A pat on the back never hurt anyone; editors espec

IF YOU new exactly what God
wanted you - to do. would you
do it? Of. course, you would. The

The story of
Isaiah throws some light on this
problem. (We are beginning this
week three- months study of the
great prophets Isaiah and Jere
miah.) True, he lived some 2700
years ago, and half way to the
other side of the world; but human
nature has not changed in 2700
From Man about Town
To Man of God
TSAIAH was a young man about
town, in the small but wealthy
city of Jerusalem, about 700 years
before Christ He was a personal
mend of all the Important people.
man of good education, .with
wide horizons of interest, of inde
pendent means, eloquent, "polished,'
the sort of man who makes a good
He tells in some detail Ike
, story of how he came to be a
prophet. The story is in IsaJak
' t. Perhaps if we had been
there with a earners and a wire
recorder we might have been
able to photograph the sera
phim and take down their
cries, just as Isaiah aaw and
What we do know is that that
experience changed Isaiah's life.
Up to that time (on his 'own show
ing) he had been a "man of un
clean lips;" from that time on he
began to be a spokesman for the
Lord. Let us try to say what the
story of that life-changing vision,
Ithat call, means in terms of our
The Flame of God ' .
FIRST there was the overwhelm
ing sense of God's reality and
power and holy majesty. No one
can ever experience a call who
does not take God seriously.
A God "afar off," a God
who la only a problem, an Idea,
a hypothesis, never called any
one. God alone can make him
self real to man;'-and only a
man with a real sense of a
living God Is going to hear bis
Next came Isaiah's realization
of his own unfitness and sin. A
man who feels 'equal to a great
task is probably not equal fertt.
"mem as knows nawthhv fears
nawthhV," 1 as the Irish say. ZJi
man who feels good enough to
serve God, Just as he is, is not good
enough. A man, without a serial of
sin is too full of it i ?
Then comes the burning Ntoalr
from the altar; Isaiah feel . that
his guilt la gone. No one can fully
do God's will with an unforgiven
heart. Isaiah was not sinless- at one
stroke, of course, yet it is possible
to turn from all known sin; it is
possible to devote one's loyalty to
God; and this Isaiah did.
It was only then that he
heard the call: Whom shall I
send? In modern and less pic
turesque language, Isaiah was
conscious of a need he had not
felt bef ere that law of , God's
need, of his peonle's need. A
What those .needs .were, will
come out. in - later - stndles.- The
point is that young Isaiah.),' who
hitherto had lived only for bmisetf.
now saw the need ot, the city' and

Describing the suit "to dissolve
tho Great Atlantid Ic Pacific Tea,
Company as a threat to the weM
fare and living standards of every
American citizen, officials of the
company announced today they
oppose it with every legitimate
means. The suit filed in the Fed
eral Court for the Southern Dist
rict of New York asked the courts
to dispose of its manufacturing and
processing facilities and to break
up the company into smaller chains
the A&P statement said in full:
This action is a threat to the wel
fare and living standards of every
American citizen. If successful
it will mean less food on every
dinner table and fewer dollars in
every pay envelope. This is not
just an effort to destroy A&P but
an attack on the entire system of
efficient low cost - low-profit mass
distribution which the company
-AAcP was the first chain store in
this country and the methods we
developed .have been adopted by
other grocers - as well as merchants
In other lines. There are today lit
erally hundreds of chain stores and
voluntary groups of individual mer
chants opera(ing with the same
methods and in the same pattern
here under attack.
If the anti-trust lawyers succeed
in destroying A&P - the way will
be cleared for the destruction of
every other efficient large scale
There is nothing even approach
ing monoply here - for as every
housewife knows - the retail gro
cery business is the most competi
tive in the titantry-and we do only
a small part of it. Nor was there
ever any charge that ' we1 raised
prices - for the whole basis of this
attack is the fact that we ipld good
food too cheap. There is nothing
in our operations - or in any . pre
vious court decisions involving us -or
in the anti-trust laws themselves
to justify the dissolution of A&P.
Obviously - it is 'the. theory of
the anti-trust lawyers that the peo
ple of America have no right to
patronize a company if their pa
tronage will make that company
grow - and that any big business
must be destroyed simply because
it is big - and even iif the public
gets hurt in the process.
This action is just opposite to
the purpose of the anti-trust laws -
which were meant to increase com
petition and keep prices down
for if if succeeds - it will serve
only to cut down competition and
force prices up. A&P's policy si
ways maintained and kept alive the
spirit of competition.
Frankly - the owners of A&P
could make enormous amounts of
money by breaking up this company
as the anti-trust lawyers wish -
and selling off the parts.
But we believe this attack is a
threat to millions of consumers who
rely on us forquality foods at low
prices - to hundreds-of thousands
of farmers who rely on us for fast
low-cost distribution of their pro
ducts - and to our 110,000 loyal em
ployee!. - rvPt
There has never been any ques
tion, in Our mind that it Is good
business and good citizenship to
sell good food as cheaply as poss
ible and we feel that it is our re
sponsibility to our customers' - our
suppliers and our employees to de
fend this company and that theory
by every legitimate means.
