; They Fight the War on !


;= 9882 Fronts! 'I



" ONE OF THE THINGS YOU LEARN in wartime is that <\'41

the home front cannot be operated by centrally located push

For the homefront is not ONE front, but 9,882 smaller ones.Y .
: ,
It's Kokomo, Dallas, Utica, Milldale, Chicago, Beloit, Grun-
. dy County. It's the village, the city, the community. Each faced
with the same war problems-but each with variations, each I
with its local angles. '

Because these problems are never exactly the same, they ,
call for local understanding and local leadership. _II I I

But it must be local leadership that understands national
needs, local leadership that is respected because of long-time ,
service to the community!

r J r a ... ,. ...'-' Whir
Of all the institutions in a democratic community, none is
better suited to be this leader of the people, this arouser of
I public opinion, than the local newspaper. '"

And it is our great good fortune that there are more of '
these papers in America than any other country-13,000 dailies
and weeklies serving '9,882 communities, fighting the war on E
9,882 local fronts. ,I

These newspapers are, in many cases, the biggest single in-
influence in their communities. No other medium covers local '
, life as completely as they do. No other medium puts down the
local facts in black and white, where you can study and analyze
them. u

No other local medium touches so many lives at so many '
points. Through the greatest news-gathering organizations in all -1
the world, American newspapers bring the sweat and blood of !
- the battle front home to the people as forcefully as they do the
homefront problems.No .

other medium in these 9882 local fronts is nearly as well

: equipped to point out, explain, to arouse action on a war probe
