ONE OF THE THINGS YOU LEARN in wartime is that il
the home front cannot be operated by centrally located push
: ..... buttons.


q I For the homefront is not ONE front, but 9,882 smaller ones !

It's Kokomo, Dallas, Utica, Milldale, Chicago, Beloit, Grun-
dy County. It's the village, the city, the community. Each faced
yi with the same war problems-but 'each with variations, each :
.with its local angles.

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

it must be local leadership that understands national ;j
needs, local leadership that is respected because of longtime Ii
,' service to the community!

Of all the institutions in a democratic community, none is '.. JIt
1 1 P' I better suited to be this leader of the people, this arouser of i'
public opinion, than the local newspaper. ; 9
It ..
And it is our great good fortune that there are more of

,, these papers in America than any other contrr-13OOO; dailies f
and weeklies serving 9,882 communities, fighting the war on L:
9,882 local fronts. !


These newspapers are, in many cases, the biggest single I in- 0,. M, ""t
, influence in their communities. No other medium covers local (, ,; I II
life as completely as they do. No other medium puts down the ': -1

local facts in black and white, where you can study and analyze I' "r 1
them. "
,A' "
.. No other local medium touches so many lives at so many :". ,
points. Through the greatest news-gathering organizations in all I' I
.' the world, American newspapers bring the sweat and blood of'I I
the battle front home to the people as forcefully as they do the
homefront problems.

I No other medium in these 9882 local fronts is nearly as well
equipped to point out, explain, to arouse action on a war prob
