.. gets an editor
       AFTER READING of all the
readers may wonder if a new editor
fresh out of J-school isn't trying to
fill some pretty big boots. Even if
the readers aren't wondering, the
"fresh out" editor sure is.
   New editors like to tell "how I
 hope to make this magazine better."
 I'd rather let the readers find the
 "how's" themselves   (this isn't a
 dodge, either). If you like some-
 thing, maybe you'll say so; and if
 you don't, I hope you'll say so. Even
 destructive criticism is welcome; it's
 better than none.
   Guess I'm supposed to tell some-
thing  about myself    (I wish    to
blazes somebody else would write
this whole article while I go' out to
a movie.) I was graduated with the
School of Journalism's Class of '49
and have been gummed up with
printers' ink since the depression
loused up the insurance business
and made a weekly editor of my
father and a linotype operator of my
mother. Their newspaper is Foun-
tain  City's (40 miles above La
Crosse on the Mississippi) Buffalo
County Republican and none of us
would retrade journalism for insur-
ance any day of the week.
