Chicago (Ill.) Post
Probably a great many newspaper readers—and certainly the vast majority of those who are addicted to the reading of sensational newspapers—will be surprised to learn that in their reading they have a public duty to perform. Surprising though this may be, it is true; and its truth is shown clearly and strongly by President Arthur T. Hadley of Yale, who has contributed to The Youth's Companion (Nov. 5) a thoughtful article on "The Public Duty of Newspaper Readers."
President Hadley sees in the reading of a daily paper more than mere amusement, more than keeping in touch with current events. He sees in it the shaping, through the newspapers and by them through the government, of the future of the nation itself. For the papers are, after all, the most direct and effective way the people have of speaking to the men in whose hands they have entrusted the government of the country. It is of vital importance, then, that the papers speak always for the right and tell things as they are. And this the papers will do, declares President Hadley, if their readers demand it of them. This is his argument:—
