Hot Potato

Last week, the U. S. press was pr sented with one of the hugest and b test journalistic potatoes ever baked Washington, D. C.-the dubiously leg opportunity of publishing the income figures of U. S. citizens as paid s Jan. 1, 1924.* Some newspapers anticipated this opportunity, others to decide speedily upon their cond toward the luscious, but alarmi vegetable. Besides the ambiguity of th law, the papers had to consider the actions of their readers and the dictat of policy. Would curiosity overpow the anger of the individual at seeing private affairs of himself and his neigh bor thus laid bare? Would publ opinion swing against the publicity and regard it as excessively bad taste What did one's political affiliations de mand-to publish or not to publish? Of Republicans, not to. Of anti-Republi cans, by all means to publish-lou long, vigorously. The cold theory of journalism enjoined all to publish Here was news-big, big news. Wha matter who had let it out? If one newspaper published it, why not all?

Typical of the actions of newspapers the country over were the actions ci four leading newspapers in Manhattan

The Evening Post (Republican) he. consistently against publishing the lists "not only because such publication against the law but because it is a gross violation of the rights of the individua which we opposed when the law was passed by the Democratic-RadicalRenegade coalition in Congress las spring.

"We do not propose to stultify our position now or to further such injustice and unfairness on the specious plea that it is 'news.'"

The Times (Democratic), livest to the situation of all Manhattan newspapers, took counsel early, decided that it was within the law, published all the names and amounts it could lay hands on. It gobbled the hot potato whole and was willing, if necessary, to pay $1,000 for so good a meal. To a city full o irate financiers it said: "Resentment is justified but belated. I: should have been aroused more vehemently at the time the bill was pending."

The World (Democratic) fingered the potato, dropped it, then picked it up again. In its first edition, the World carried the lists. In the second edition, the lists had been stricken from the page, only to be restored again in the last edition for the day.

The Twenty-third Man

WENTY-TWO football players are at it cheek by jowl, they go to it hip and thigh, and the twenty-third man, cool-headed, maybe a little fellow, does the refereeing. The Outlook has done the most of my refereeing for the last thirty years."

Picturesque and bracing language this, in which one reader describes what The Outlook means to him. We rather like his figure of speech. It has life and go to it. It smacks of good sportsmanship, flexible muscles, and a ruddy complexion.

There are stiff-backed periodicals that set themselves up as sort of supreme court justices of current questions. In dusty grandeur they sit in judgment. The Outlook will never count itself among them; its place is down among men, in the thick of life.

It is not a passive bystander. Its editors and its contributors are men of action, as well as men of reflection. They come to you from every swirl of life that is vital

and significant. They recount to you with tongues of authority the running story of current life. They come to you from the inner circles of world politics, from boards. of directors of great corporations, from the sober councils. of labor leaders, from the smudge of factories, from the frontiers of the fine arts, from tents and battlefields, from the dizzy heights of airplanes, from the orchestra-pits of Broadway.

Here is a periodical that has never fallen into the detachment of most journals of opinion, nor into the superficial sentimentality of journals published merely to please. The majority of those who subscribe for The Outlook soon discover that they cannot do without it. They know of no substitutes for it. They need its rigorous fare. They like it because it cannot and will not make advance announcements of cut-and-dried editorial programmes. They stick to The Outlook because it is exactly what its name implies.

From One of the Half Million

Edward W. Bok said recently:

"I have known The Outlook for thirty years, and have been a steady reader of it and know of no periodical which has so consistently stood for the best of worth-while reading and been such a true reflection of American life."

The Outlook is for those who take pride in their intelligence and in the wise enjoyment of the good things in life.

Its articles by those who speak with high authority on business give it essential value to busy men of affairs.

Its short stories, 'one-act plays, poetry, and book reviews are read with keen enjoyment by those who seek the relaxation that such good reading brings. No journal in America holds a higher place as a clear and unbiased interpreter of the doings of our public servants.

For half a century The Outlook has been regarded as a stanch champion of religion in America.

The Outlook's world-wide reportorial contacts insure for its readers a steady flow of timely news from the four corners of the globe.

The Outlook holds within its covers entertaining treatment and clear explanation of the latest achievements in the world of Science and Invention. Its treatment of the broader aspects of sport and its accounts of football games, polo matches, golf and tennis contests, and ski tournaments have been and will be among the high spots of sporting journalism.

There is no journal whose editorials have been more widely quoted or whose opinions have wielded a more important influence on National life and thought.

Others noted that in the first lists which the Times published, the name of Mr. Cyrus Hermann Kotzschmar Curtis, the Post's owner, was also "carefully concealed," doubtless for the same reason that Mr. Ochs' was-temporary availability. Next day the Times published the tax of Adolph S. Ochs.



As it must to all men, Death came to Percy D. Haughton, in the 50th year of his life and the 26th year of his career as one of the country's most distinguished coaches. of athletes. Dressing for an afternoon's workcoaching the Columbia University football team, in Manhattan, he was stricken suddenly with acute indigestion which proved fatal almost before it seemed dangerous.

"P. D." Haughton, Haughton of Harvard, Haughton of football, with genius for building gridiron machinery, had just capped many notable accomplishments with the re-creation of Columbia's once-potent elevens.

Twenty years ago he built up Cornell. From 1908 to 1916 he rendered Harvard nearly unbeatable. Last week his Columbia team, which he had a-building for two seasons, smashed Williams, the conqueror of mighty Cornell, thus placing Columbia up among major teams of the country-a position she had not enjoyed for two decades.


Drilled in the technique of every Notre Dame play, in the very mannerisms of every Notre Dame backfield man, Princeton's sons went sanguinely into battle and found themselves facing a team of substitutes. Abstractedly they wrangled through the first period, chafed with a black curiosity for what lay ahead. The second period began, Coach Rockne's regulars swept out in a cluster; Tiger nerves jangled. What Coach Rockne's incomparable strategy had begun, Halfback Crowley's mighty thews executed. Twice, after prolonged offensives, the bal went through the gallant Princeton defense for touchdowns. Score: Notre Dame 12, Princeton 0.
