Excerpt from Types of News Writing For systematic instruction in news writing it is desirable that students have in convenient form representative stories for study and analysis. N ews papers, it might be thought, would furnish this material, but experience has shown that it is often difficult to find, in current issues of newspapers, ex amples of the particular kind of story under consideration, and it is likewise difficult to supply every student in a large class with a copy of the issue that happens to contain the desired example. The selection of specimens for this book has been determined largely by two considerations: first, that the news which the story contains should be typical, rather than extraordinary or freakish and second, that the story should present the news effectively. It has been assumed that the student must first learn to handle average news well in order to grapple successfully with extraordinary happenings. A considerable part of the book deals with more or less routine news, because it is with this type that a large portion of the reporter's work is concerned.
