San Bernardino (Cal.) Sun

To send the paper instead of the news is a most unusual journalistic feat. Ordinarily, the news is gathered and sent to the home office of the newspaper for publication. But The Christian Science Monitor took another plan at Chicago. It absolutely moved itself, or a part of itself, from Boston to Chicago, during the Republican convention, and issued a Chicago edition. A new and complete newspaper plant was installed for the purpose, although only used a week.

The big journals spend thousands to score news "beats," but this move made by the Monitor has the virtue of being absolutely original. Typographically the edition was a replica of the Boston paper, while a staff of writers was sent from Boston to Chicago to watch the convention and report it according to the Monitor's somewhat unusual standards. The feat is absolutely unique in up-to-date and down-to-the-minute journalism.
