      The pondorouu, dignified, sonorous editorial style has gone out. It
went rith thu hoopskirt and crinoline.   Those arc days of bobbed hair and
short
skir',.  Let's put our message in the abbreviated style the women have adoptod.
                          Build Headlines on Facts
   VV01-JEN, in the mass, have rarely boon wrong. W~,hen they derund short,
snappy stylus they indicate life has become snap,)y. They startle us some-
times with their bcach brovitics.   Let's bet into the gamo and startle them
into sub:cribing for our papurs by giving them snappy huads, better made-up
papers, zottcr-set advertisements and better papers.
      To write heads demands that there must be facts in the story in tops
and
we hereby assert that many a country paper is going to bat, week after week,
with mighty few facts, or at least facts that are just the coarse nuggcts
of
the district, unrefined by the application of intensive thought.
      In watching consolidations the past two years I have detected the fact
that few of the papers which lost their identity were papers that aarriod
good
heads. It scems to mle as though properly dressed papers built themselves
pro-
tection; chat rival papers foared to battle with them. They looked too well
established to be given a fight.

  I- DITORSHIP of THE JEFFERSON BANNER will be changed in the near future.
      But only for one wock.  At the time the now high school building of
Badger Homemakers     this Badger community is dodicated, members of the
Will Edit Weekly      Woron's Club of Jefferson will edit the weokly. Every-
   thing from preparing copy to solicting advertising and subscriptions will
