EDITORIAL AND REPORTORIAL EXECUTIVE STAFF
WHAT THE CAMERA'S EYE SEES
One good picture is worth ten thousand words, says an old proverb. The Evening Journal is invariably FIRST in serving its readers with accurate, informative, illuminating and exclusive news pictures. Each picture must pass the scrutiny of the most critical staff of experts to be good enough for reproduction in the Evening Journal. New Yorkers know they get better and more interesting pictures in the Evening Journal than in any other New York newspaper.
MEANS LIFE TO THE NEWS
You may have the news beat of a century on your desk. Hold it a half hour too long—long enough for another paper to print it FIRST—and for you it is YESTERDAY'S NEWS with all the LIFE ebbed out of it.
The News Policy of the NEW YORK EVENING JOURNAL can be summarized in five sentences:
Give all the vital news of the moment. Give it cleanly. Give it accurately. Give it interestingly. Give it succinctly.
Back of this clean-cut, vigorous policy of news presentation is the finest reportorial and editorial talent that money can buy.
Local news printed in the New York Evening Journal is furnished by the most adequate staff of reporters and special writers retained by any evening newspaper in the city.
Telegraphic news is furnished by the International News Service—with well equipped offices not only in New York but in Washington, London, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Peking—with expert representatives all over the world. In New York City's evening newspaper field International News Service serves the New York Evening Journal exclusively.

INTERNATIONAL NEWS SERVICE REPORTS NEWS OF THE WORLD FOR EVENING JOURNAL READERS
International News Service has firmly established itself as the dominant press service in the afternoon newspaper field. Its news dispatches, gathered from every corner of the universe, likewise are published in newspapers throughout the civilized world. International News Service is truly international in scope, linking the foremost nations in a comprehensive news-gathering and news-distributing chain.
Approximately 60,000 miles of leased wire, used and controlled by International News Service, distributes its news reports to the Evening Journal alone in New York and to more than 500 other daily newspapers in the United States. By cable and radio International News Service dispatches are sent to sixteen foreign nations in both hemispheres. Editors of the leading newspapers in Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Japan, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and numerous other countries place the same reliance upon the International News Service reports as do the editors of leading American afternoon dailies.
International News Service is operated under the able General Managership of Frank Mason, former chief of the Paris Bureau.
Collection and preparation of its news reports is in the hands of a highly trained staff of editors and correspondents. This staff is directed by Barry Faris, General News Manager, who has had more than a dozen years' experience in press association work and knows thoroughly every detail of the service.
George R. Holmes heads a large staff at Washington. Holmes, himself, is an outstanding authority on news from the National capital, a keen observer, a vivid writer. William K. Hutchinson, Kenneth Clark, George Durno, Lawrence Sullivan and William S. Neal are members of the Washington corps whose achievements have made them widely known to newspaper editors and readers throughout the United States.
Copeland C. Burg, in Chicago, Ellis H. Martin in San Francisco and other staff men in all the leading cities in the United States get the news for International News Service and write it in individualistic style for New York Evening Journal readers.
The International News Service Foreign Staff is a large one. Harry K. Reynolds, Director of Foreign Service, with headquarters in New York, was formerly Manager of the London bureau, and he knows intimately every phase of the foreign service. Harry R. Flory, Manager in London; Frederic K. Abbott, Manager in Paris, and Otto D. Tolischus, Manager in Berlin, not only have done noteworthy work in covering the big news stories themselves, but direct a network of correspondents in their respective territories that literally covers the world for International News Service. Edward L. Deuss in Moscow, Guglielmo Emanuel in Rome and Harold Ballou in Madrid are capable members of the foreign staff who know their fields thoroughly. Correspondents are maintained as well in China, Japan, the Philippines, various South American countries and elsewhere at strategic points for news coverage.
International News Service correspondents at home and abroad have only one rule to guide them. That is to get the news and get it right. Generally, as well, they get it FIRST for New York Evening Journal readers.
TWO DAYS IN ADVANCE!
The story of three men in the Arctic.
Above them the cold, gray sky, washed by an impenetrable fog.
Around them only crashing icebergs, each second grinding out a new variety of the age-old Arctic death threat.
One man injured, unable to continue.
Then the story of the dying man who consigned himself to an icy grave that his mates might save themselves. And the story of the two men who, faced with this dilemma, left their pal to die, alone with his thoughts. Leering icebergs grinding out the death march.
This is the story of Dr. Finn Malmgren and Captains Marianno and Zappi.
It first became known to the world when the New York Evening Journal printed International News Service dispatches via Moscow on Friday, July 13, 1928. The Evening Journal's headlines then read:
"MALMGREN DESERTED BY MATES; NOT DEAD WHEN ABANDONED"
It wasn't until Sunday, July 15, that other New York papers printed the gripping story the Evening Journal had given New York on Friday, July 13.
The Evening Journal is always ACCURATE—and FIRST
