THE PRESS

Just Look Us Over, Boys

We pride ourselves on the fact that a moral can be very profitably extracted from our undignified departure from serious journalism in yesterday's issue. The old adage concerning not believing all one hears was nicely illustrated. Further, more, such unwarranted generosity and unexpected benevolence on the part of the Powers That Be places a severe strain on one's credulity even if the particular article had been read in toto.

Thoroughness is a virtue that has never been sufficiently extolled. The cursory reader of even this daily pays the penalty for his cursory perusal by an imperfect knowledge of the facts in the case. Not that we are by any manner of means apologizing for the incident. On the contrary, we relished it thoroughly. From the unfortunates who were victimized we exacted poetic justice. A journalistic Nemesis overtook those who read the headlines and run. Princetonian.
