News Review Editor of The AP
If some Rip Van Winkly historian
should say, "I've slept all this year-
what happened?" you might tell him:
First, Japan and China waged the
worst war since the World War, fatal
to American and British bystanders,
and prompting America to reventure
into peace parleying.
Second, fascist nations formed a
united front, and on or near Spain
the arms of five of the world's seven
powers were used.
Third, the earth was good to U.S.
farmers, but the stock market broke
and business receded, disturbing
Fourth, Roosevelt lost a Supreme
Court enlargement fight that split
Democrats, but won some decisions
and made Hugo Black a judge.
Fifth, CIO, while battling AFL,
went through the most violent steel
strike in history, soon after whopper
auto plant sitdowns.
Assuming Rip, the scholar, also to
be a gentleman who buys "extras,"
you might continue:
Sixth, the Hindenburg burned, but
63 persons got out alive.
Seventh, a Texas shool blast killed
nearly 300 children.
Eighth, fierce floods flushed down
the Ohio and Mississippi.
Ninth, a heart-tearing South Sea
search for Amelia Earhart failed.
And tenth (lest Rip think you are
overemphasizing dismal develop-
ments), exploratory flights for new
air services linking Europe and
America were successful.
Undoubtedly Rip would ask about
the Windsor wedding and George VI's
coronation-the biggest 1937 stories
anticipated in December, 1936, when
You might mention, too, the Wind-
sors' failure to visit America, the
Lindberghs' surprising return, the
duPont-Roosevelt nuptials, and the
death of John D. Rockefeller, An-
drew Mellon, Ogden Mills, Guglielmo
Marconi, Ramsay MacDonald and
As a historian, moreover, Rip ought
to hear about Russia's public-officials
purge, French Premier Blum's fall,
Baldwin's retirement and Britain's
plan to split Palestine, Germany's
church conflict, Brazil's totalitarian-
ism and America's anti-syphilis cru-
In fact, the more you mull over
'37's iews, the more you'll sympa-
thize with pickers of the "10 biggest
stories." And if you sprang the "big
10" above on a Prof. VanWinkle, you'd.
have to elucidate.
Wars, East And West
Well, the Oriental war's hellish-
ness-still not "quarantined"-has
been photographed. Rip could see at
; glance what happened there, to
cities and children. And only the
other day, a U.S. gunboat was bombed
The European snarl, too, is some-
thing to think about: Italy openly'
leaped into Spain, Germany brazen-
ly bombarded a Spanish port, Russian1
arms defended Madrid, British and
French fleets chased Mediterranean
"pirates." The Rome-Berlin axis
whirled: London and Paris reached
"full solidarity." And don't forget
the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo anti-com-
munism pact, Hitler's yips for colon-
ies, or Britain's $7,500,000,000 arms
But war correspondence heads the'
list only because it was "page one-
must" stuff all around the world.
Denver editors used to say, "A dog
fight on Champa street is better news
than a revolution in Cuba or an
earthquake in China" - Champa
street being closer. By that criterion,
1937's biggest news, because it was
closest to Americans, was the indus-
trial worry and the labor strife.
Big News At Home
As the year ends ,the business
bump is foremost. But for months,
labor conflicts splattered U.S. streets.
And in this country, especially to
politicians, the Supreme Court fight,
Van Devanter's retirement, Joe Rob-
inson's death and the Ku Klux Klan
roar was as big, if not bigger, news
than two wars abroad.
Planes And Stuff
The two explosions, the Hinden-
burg and the Texas schoolhouse, were
the press wires' sharpest "flashes."
The spring flood sufferers' SOS
brought relief contributions clear
from China. And the Earhart dis-
appearance-remember those radio
reports from no-one-knew-where?-
had more suspense than fiction.
But over the Atlantic, American
and British planes purred smoothly.
Russians succeeded in two out. of
three attempts to hop over the North
Pole to America, aided by the Arctic
weather observatory. And as a year
marked by appalling airway accidents
here ends, America is preparing to
build a fleet of 100-passenger ocean
