News Lacks
News sources today do not pro-
vide enough background to enable
the public to evaluate and reflect
on the news, Max Ascoli, editor and
publisher of The Reporter maga-
zine, said yesterday, in the last
lecture of the journalism school
The main reason for this is that
news is dispersed on such a large
scale in the United States, sources
gloss over the inner meanings and
we fail to recognize the values'
that lay behind it, Ascoli explained.
More news sources should at-
tempt to report the deeper signifi-
cance of the news, he charged.
"We need to know less of the news
but better of it. The term focal
reporting might be used to describe
this type of reporting,"
"Two situations confront us to-
day," he said. "On one side every
major issue is blown up until lit-
tle room is left for thinking of
other things. On the other side we
are given such a tremendous
amount of little things to think
about that we are unable to know
what is important and what is
Ascoli did not minimize the im-
portance of straight news reporting
but emphasized the fact that
events should be placed in their
proper focus for reflection and in-
telligent opinion.

"MANY ACTORS," said Mr.
Marshalov, "make the mistake of
trying to teach or learn the Stan-

and that is why his theories are
greatly misunderstood."
