JOURNALISM TRENDS:
Readers Want Interpretation

By RAYMOND HOLTON
Readers of American newspapers
are looking for interpretive analy-
sis of news events on the nation-
al and international level, Donald
Carter, managing editor of The
National Observer, said yesterday
in a department of journalism
lecture.
Carter, speaking on "New Trends
in Journalism," noted several re-
cent development which account
for the demand for interpretation
and analysis in national and inter-
-national news.
"There is a scattered number of
large newspapers offering cover-
age of national and international
news. This trend opens the door
to smaller newspapers which de-
vote most of their energies to lo-
cal coverage.
"Both of these types, the smaller
local newspaper and the larger
national and international paper,
are feasibly and economically pos-
sible," Carter said.
He noted another change in the
function of newspapers. "Radio
and television nowadays offer spot
coverage of news events and it
is no longer possible for a news-
paper to offer a comparable cov-
erage of events.
"At times we look down on tele-
vision and then we run into a big
story like that in Dallas last No-
vember. No newspaper could have
gotten the news to the public
faster than television in those four
days," Carter said.
Reassess Roles
He pointed out that these de-
velopments make it necessary for
newspapers to reassess their roles.
The Observer is a weekly news-

claimed is the "paper of the fu-
ture," spend aproximately an hour
and 36 minutes reading it each
week. He noted that the average
reader of a daily newspaper spends
only 30 minutes with his paler.
Educational Level
Carter also noted the rising ed-
ucational level of the reading pub-
lic. "Of the Observer's 235,000
readers, about 60 per cent have
undergraduate degrees and 20 per
cent have earned graduate de-
grees," he said.
The Observer is published byj
Dow Jones and Co. which also
publishes the Wall Street Journal.
It was started in Feoruary of
1961.
Carter said that since that time
he has learned several sure,=ising
facts about the likes and dislikes
of the reading public.
Few Major Stories
"There are not as many major
news stories as we would at first
think. If you put all the bulletins
and odds and ends of news events
together, by the end of the week
you come up with five or six major
stories."
Carter also pointed out that
readers like to know who writes
the articles they are reading. "We
had many, letters come into the
Observer asking who wrote vari-
cus articles. Therefore we made it
policy to identify most writers
through by-lines set above the
headlines of stories."
Carter also said that "mix"
is good in a paper, explaining that
readers are interested in several
different kinds of news features
and articles.

DONALD CARTER
paper which offers the reading
public interpretation and analysis
of national and international news
events.
"People are no longer interested
in the dull, drab newspaper which
offers only the who, what, when,
where and why of the news," Car-
ter said.
Want Perspective
"They want the events put into
perspective with related events.
"Often times the modern daily
newspaper is too bulky for readers
to go through carefully. After all,
how much time will a reader
spend with a newspaper each
day?" Carter asked.
Carter said that readers of the

Store Asks
Student Aid
In Growth
By CHRISTINE LINDER
The Ann Arbor Cooperative
Bookstore is presently attempting
to obtain wide student support in
order to make its operations suc-
cessful, Sol Jacobson, Grad, a
member of the Friends of the Ann
Arbor Cooperative Bookstore, said
recently.
Jacobson says that the immed-
iate aims of the Friends commit-
tee are to increase student mem-
bership in the cooperative, to so-
licit credit from faculty members
and interested groups, and to con-
vince publishers that the coopera-
tive is a financially stable organ-
ization with which to do business.
The store managers are at-
tempting to expand the activities
of the now independent Ann Ar-
bor Cooperative Bookstore after a
series of changes in ownership and
financial backing. Last November
the USNSA withdrew the financial
support from the store.
Chicago Owners
Earlier this year the Chicago
owners and managers closed
down, forcing the Ann Arbor
branch of the Continental Student
Cooperative Union to become in-
dependent. The Friends of the
Ann Arbor Cooperative Bookstore
was then formed to save it.
Setting a quota of 500 new stu-
dent members, the new store man-
agement is asking student organi-
zations to help by selling mem-
berships and by acting as advisors,
Jacobson said. Membership costs1
$5 for life and is $1 annually.
The advantages of the co-op, as
Jacobson sees them, are that stu-
dents may obtain textbooks at
eight to ten per cent below the
price in local bookstores, may ob-
tain paperbacks and other bookst
at a greater saving and will have
the opportunity to examine many
kinds of books in a givexi field thatI
will be on display.
Greater Patronage
In order to achieve this goal,
the cooperative, which formerly
served mainly as an orderingc
house, needs greater student pat-;
ronage and support from facultye
members both in the placing ofc
orders with the store and as ad-c
visors on what books are impor-f
tant in each field.
The bookstore has received
strong endorsement- from Studentr
Government Council and Graduate
Student Council. This, together
with student interest and facultyc
support, as indicated by an in-]
crease in membership and faculty]
assistance, should put the book-i
store on the road to a strong
financial basis, Jacobson believes.
The store did not lose moneyi
this year.
"If the students support thet
store with their patronage andf
membership, there will be severali
gains," Jacobson says. "They will
not only save money on what they
buy in the store, but the competi-
tion may influence the local book-c
stores to avoid excessively highe
prices."I
