To me there always has been
someth toft awkward - something
lacking, in picking up a piece of

' haps being gripped by something

after all, it Isn't so much what is
said but who fa’,;, it that mints!
Of course. I'm not supposed to
know anything about .journalism,
and don't. I understand that, per
fectly, But I do know something
about what I like. And when It
comes to i cadlng, 1 have an Idea
that my lik«and dislikes do not

And I’m pretty sure that most of
us woul-* like to have tlie stuff we
read, signed. Shakespeare to the
contrary, notwithstanding. to me
at least, there 1” something In n

signatures of the men who signed
it? And the Emancipation Procla
mation without Lincoln's name to
Everybody knows that what Will
Rogers has to say each day would
riot amount to a snap If his signa
ture didn't accompany it. Think of
reading a review of Paul Green's
nlays without knowing whose Ideas
were expressed. And how about
these anonymous pieces we see
everyday in tire newspapers—edi
torials, happenings and all—writ
ten by we know not whom, and un
interesting to the discerning in pre
cisely the ratio in which we can or
cannot figure out their authors,
i m ell for this personal Journal
ism. Take Mark Sullivan's political
articles: Ills signature Is what mak
es them important. Back in the
days- ot the World War when Frank
Slmonds was writing his penetrat
ing reticles about the progress of
events the thing that mattered
about those wonderfully exact
statements was the authority be
hind them. Many times we know n
certain thing is true Just because a
certain man said it.
Anyway, the by-line is back. Per
sonal Journalism is flourishing. And
I can see no reason why it shouln't
be back, I know the arguments on
the other side; but it always did
flatten me out a bit to take up a
newspaper and look at the head of
the column on the editorial and
not be able to find the names of
the men who were responsible for
the paper. An editorial page with
out a name at the top of It! Why.
Its names that make the world go
A good many newspapers', now
are carrying the names of the
publisher, editor gnd managing edi
tor. Some of them are carrying
more names. Magazines know the
value of names and almost every
thing they carry is signed—-that's
what makes them carry It. and
that's why people spend money to
buy their sheets.
In recent days 1 have been no
ticing a lot of the newspapers, to
see how they are using names to
their articles and reports. As an in
stance, a daily in a small North
Carolina city had ten by-lines in
one of its week-day Issues. Anoth
er Carolina paper had, in its Sun
day issue twenty-three by-lines. On
a week-dayy Atlanta Georgian had
thirty-four names signed to its ar
tide* and feature;.: tne Macon
Evening News lmd twelve; and the
Atlanta Journal, thirty-two. One
North Carolina paper had twenty
five names signed in a week-day
issue and The News and Observer
was out a few Sundays ago with
thirty by-lines. And In all these
newspapers mentioned. the car
toons and drawings are not count
ed. I’ve been talking about articles,
special columns, features and the
I have been told that Charles
Parker of The News and Observer,
is the first reporter In the South
who was allowed to sign his name.
Anyway, now. u great number of
them are doing it. It seems to me
tha' it lends authority. It substi
tute;; personality for anonymity. To
sign a name squirts a bit. of life
into the printed page. To write
without a name oh well. I'm Just
convinced that it never hits the
spot on the same level as docs
1 something that appears with a
| man’s name attached.
One doesn't know where this
swing in personal journalism will
go to. One bs<; New York puuer has
more than twenty by-lines on its
week-day issues- names which, for
the most part, mean something
Out in the . late of Oklahoma it is
said that fifty-tlure.' Oklahoma
newspapers signed editorial col
umns by members of their staffs. A
survey made at the University of

some on special subjects, as sports

I have some letters tiled away
that are precious to me precisely
because they are signed. There's
one from Schumann-Heink. Its the
signature that makes that letter
valuable. Take away the signatur

have the letters, too. Take away the
names from the books I read and
the magazine articles, and you've
done an. incalculable amount ot
damage to me. Set before me a
