Though New Yorkers may feel
they are getting all the news from

Prof. Stewart commented that
various polls have proven that
more radio and TV listeners
make more newspaper readers.
Radio and TV are transitory and
only highlight the news and this
stimulates their listeners to look
for further elaborations of the

ADVERTISING is one facet of
a newspaper that TV can not come
pete with, asserted Prof. Garrison,
for television can never duplicate

on newspapers is that the news-
paper of today is easier to read,
