What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

But at the same there is a certain responsibility at­ tached to all actions, even so trivial as stopping a paper because the ed­ itor says something one doesn’t agree with. There is a complaint that editors lack fearlessness and honesty, that newspapers are too generally mere partisan organs that disregard the claims of truth and justice when political interests are at stake. There is too mneh truth in the charge! But let us ask how it is possible for a fearless, honest, ontspoken joural to live if every man is to cry out “stop my paper” whenever he reads something that does not accord with his view's5 The men that insist the paper they read shall never say anything con­ trary to their views are the ones who are, in a large measure, res­ ponsible for the craven cowardliness and the weather cock propensities of modem journalism. In a com­ munity composed entirely of those “slop my paper” people, true inde­ pendent journalism would be an im­ possibility. When you are convinc­ ed that a paper is dishonest and de­ ceitful, stop it. When convinced that it is unclean, stop it. When it lacp enterprise and fails to give you news, stop it. But don’t stop a paper that you believe to be honest, enterprising, clean and eor- ageons, simply because the editor has written Jss own sincere views fa- stead of yottrs or souk other per­ son’s; for if you do, you are putting a premium on insincere journalism and serving notice on an editor that the way to succeed is to write what he thinks will please Ins readers in­ stead of what he t hanks is honestly the tenth. , Wisdom*!
