9882 Fronts! j

'" ,
ONE OF THE THINGS YOU LEARN in wartime is that
the home front cannot be operated by centrally located push

buttons.'j

I
For the homefront is not ONE front, but 9,882 smaller ones. '
',1
41
It's Kokomo, Dallas, Utica, Milldale, Chicago, Beloit, Grun- :
dy County. It's the village, the city, the community. Each faced I I'I
with the same war problems-but each with variations, each I'
with its local angles.
i

,'. Because these problems are never exactly the same, they !
t .,,,: call for local understanding and local leadership.

,
"
But it must be local leadership that understands national
needs, local leadership that is respected because of long-time 'j

.. .. service to the community!
.' I Ix'

: 1 \ Of' all the institutions in a democratic community, none is
better suited to be this leader of the people, this arouser of
public opinion, than the local newspaper.

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


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


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


g other medium in these 9882 local fronts is nearly as well
! V- equipped to point out, explain, to arouse action on a war prob-
