[ They Fight the War on


I .

": 9882 Fronts! ,




'ONE OF THE THINGS YOU LEARN in wartime is that
the home front cannot be operated by centrally located push -
buttons. *. d
t ,

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
with the same war problems-but each with variations, each ,
with its local angles.

Because these problems are never exactly the same, they I
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
service to the community!

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

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
9,882 local fronts.

These newspapers are, in many cases, the biggest single I 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. I

No other local medium touches so many lives at so many :
points. Through the greatest news-gathering organizations in all
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.
\ ,
No other medium in these 9882 local fronts is nearly as well
equipped to point out, explain, to arouse action on a war prob-
