was quiet as Wall Street on a Sunday.
Robert Canuti, the AP's English-educated Turkish
correspondent, hadn't had a first-class story for
almost three months-not since the Turko-British
treaty handed the Kremlin a short and snappy
i But while man was dozing, Nature woke. Be-
neath the surface of ancient Asia Minor, subter-
ranean ledges lost their age-long balance, slipped
and skidded sideways.
The first totals of homeless, dead, and injured-
usually exaggerated in such disasters-were not ex-
aggerated this time. Pictures that came by "slow
camel" added to the terrible tale. It was the biggest
earthquake story since Yokohama.
And Robert Canuti, his months of waiting ended,
had it on the wires to the western world before it
was known in the streets of Istanbul. At once, the
machinery of international relief began to whir,
and help was on the way.
10 Most people think of Press Association men as
daring young acrobats of the newspaper world,
always somersaulting from one hot story to another
... now in Tokio, next in Singapore-now in Buch-
arest, soon at Brussels.
But the complete, the almost miraculous, world-
coverage of the great Press Services comes from
men who mostly stand and wait. Correspondents

American achievement. It is an outstanding exam-
ple of American organizing genius-and it has all
happened within the lifetime of most news-readers
now living. More than that, the Press Services are
the standard bearers, throughout the world, of the
20th century American tradition of accuracy and
fair play in news-reporting. Something new under
the sun.
1 It wasn't until the 1890s that the dream of the
modern Associated Press began to take form. A few
courageous pioneers-Victor Lawson, Frank B.
Noyes, Melville Stone, and Adolph Ochs-worked
zealously for it, and in time press associations began
pointing eager fingers at the map of the world and
putting new corresp'ondents wherever a fat dot
showed an important city.
By the time an emperor with a withered arm
unleashed the hounds, of war in 1914, U. S. Press
Services had spun their webs around the globe. AP's
now seasoned network was being kept on its mettle
byi listy young competitor, an independent service
called United Press, fathered in 1907 by E. W.
Due chiefly to the vision of these pioneers, the
U. S., in less than half a century, has shed its news
provincialism. Today... let a flood sweep down the
Yangtze, a strike begin in
Melbourne, a regiment revolt
in Addis Ababa, and in a
mtter of minute or hAurs ____

rewrite man works frantically, and soon the fingers
of another operator start the electric current flow-
ing. Operators in Philadelphia, Chicago, and al-
most a score of other U. S. cities stand up crying
"Flash." In a few seconds, every cranny of the U. S.
will have the news.
From,50,000 news sources all over the globe, this
river of news flows day and night. For while Amer-
ica sleeps, one half the world is wide-awake, busy
getting into and out of trouble, busy making that
vivid, perishable stuff called news.
To every self-respecting newspaper, Press Asso-
ciation news is the breath of life. A paper pays for
as much of it as it can afford and use. A country
weekly can have as little as $18 worth a week, a
metropolitan daily as much as $2,500. But whether
a paper gets "pony" or multiple wire service, it
counts its Press Association service as perhaps its
most valuable asset.
Press Association news is just as indispensable to
The Weekly Newsmagazine as to a daily newspaper.
To be sure, TIME has its own special correspondents,
too-its own force of 500 news-scouts-its own
check-and-query system.
But the stories from the daring acrobats and the
quiet watchers of the Press Associations supply a
basic pattern of the world's news ... the vital pat-
tern, which in the Newsmagazine becomes the con-
tinuing narrative history of our times, followed
every week by 700,000 cover-to-cover readers.
This is one of a series of advertisements in
which the Editors of TIME hope to give College
Students a clearer picture of the world of news-
gathering, news-writing, and news-reading-and
the part TIME plays in helping you to grasp,
measure, and use the history of your lifetime as
you live the story of your life.
