no plan which includes the idea of

Well, colonel, one' reason why a
paragrapher doesn't explain in a par
agraph is because if he did it wouldn't
be a paragraph, but half a column,
and then few pepple would read it.
Another reason is that any para paragrapher
grapher paragrapher who knows enough to hold
his job on a daily paper refers only to
those matters which he has a right to
believe his readers are acquainted
with. When you read .the effusions of
the ; Times-Union, Tampa Tribune,

derstand what they are writing
about. As a matter of fact, a para paragrapher
grapher paragrapher on a daily paper writes most
ly, about matters that have been fully
explained in the columns of his paper
the day before, or about some other
matter the public is well informed on.
If he- wrote in such a manner that

Now, as for your lucid explanation
