PASSENGERS HURT
Both Company And Labor Leaders
Make Cladim To Victory After
Week's Struggle
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, July 12.-The crisis in
the subway strike was postponed for
24 hours today.j
The Interborough Rapid Transit
company announced that strikers
would have until noon tomorrow to re-
turn to work or be permanently re-
moved from the payroll. The "zero
hour" had been set for noon today but
the company officials announced that
they had received reports that men
who wanted to return to work were
being intimidated by strike pickets.
The principal developments today
in the strike, which has now been in
progress for a week, were counter
claims of impending victory by strike
leaders and company officials, and re-j
ports of the first serious sabotage
since the strike began.
Company officials said that 188 strik-
ers had returned to work and that
more were coming all the time. Strike
leaders placed dissenters among the
strikers' ranks at a handful and an-
nounced that recruits had been gain-
ed from the signal tower men.
Police were told that two motor-
men had been fired on while driving
trains early this morning and investi-I
gations were begun. Strike head-
quarters denied any knowledge of the
attack. |
Two persons were injured tonight
when a ten car express train on the
Broadway-7th Avenue line ran into
the bumper at the terminal at 242nd
Street and Broadway.
One hundred and fifty passengers
who were standing at the doors of the
train were thrown to the floor. The
injured were in the second and third

Hon. William Comstock, Democratic

important platforms on which he
would stand in the coming primaries
last night in a lecture at the court

which Michigan has. His second plat-

system so that there would be a meet-

election at which men would meet
from all parts of the state. These
men would be elected by the people
from the section they represented and
therefore would pick the candidate
who best represented the people in

"A universal indictment of Ameri-

as it is futile," said Professor John L.
Brumm, of the journalism department,
in a lecture delivered yesterday in
Natural Science auditorium at five
o'clock. "The News and the Citizen"
was the subject of his talk.
"Practically everyone has exercised
his vocabulary in damning the press,"
Prof. Brumm stated. "It has been
accused of all sorts of crimes and mis-
demeanors." Foremost among its
critics are such men as H. L. Mencken
who abuses it roundly. Don Seitz, for
20 years business manager of the New
York World, states that "in the news-
paper's passion for early publication
much important news is omitted."
Prof. Durant Drake, of Vassar, in his
book, "Problems of Conduct", accuses
the press of catering to advertisers
and leaving out any news which in any
way might injure them. These are

only a few of the charges brought
against the modern press.
Though acknowledging that these
charges may have had occasions of
truth, Prof. Brumm believes that the
faults with which the newspapers are
charged may be charged against any
other business enterprise. A market
could improve the public's health by
furnishing only the best of every-
thing. Theaters are tainted by com-
imercialism. "Can even scho6ls and
colleges he pure?" he asks. "Even
government is seldom free from politi-
cal corruption. We live in an imper-
fect world. It is human nature to
adapt things to individual needs."
Most of the difficulties of the press
arise from the fact that that it is of
necessity a big business enterprise.
The day of one man newspapers has
gone. Advertising is essential to the
newspaper, and the advertising de-
pends, first of all, on the circulation.
The circulation in turn, depends upon
the popularity of appeal and this does
not always call for the best things.
It costs 14 cents to print each copy of
the New York Times, and it is sold to
the reader at a cost of two cents.
The advertiser pays the rest. The ad-
vertisers demand that the paper goes
into a large number of middle class
homes, and it is to these middle class
people that the paper must appeal.
Consequently, much space is spent in
society columns, weddings, woman's
and children's pages, and the like and
a great deal of the first page news is
scandal and crime. "The ordinary
citizen reads trival things. Our un-
differentiated reader assumes no re-
sponsibility for the paper but he
exercises a tremendous power of veto."
"The main weakness of the modern
press lies in the frequent failure of
the newspaper writer to distinguish
between fact and truth," Prof. .Brunm
asserted. "Facts may be accurately
presented without being truthful. A
false emphasis on some fact and an
