Habit Is Hard To Break
We all have our dreams . . . For us here at the Mirror
our dream is to become the best home-town newspaper in
America. We have set ourselves a new goal ... to do a better
job of reporting the local news, and with your help we can
As we see it, Gladewater is more than just a town . . .
more than just buildings and oil derricks standing and ve-
hicles on the move. Gladewater is Men, Women and Children,
working and doing, thinking and learning, dreaming and
planning. Gladewater is people living. As this is true so is it
also true that your newspaper is more than just printed words
on a page . . . Your newspaper is the sound and motion of
life as it is lived in our town in our times. It expresses the loss
of a loved one, the joy of a child’s party, the hope of an educa-
tional program or a goal set for industrial growth and progress
... It is the voice of our people, of you and you and you
having your say. We. at,the Mirror, are here but for one pur-
pose . . that you may speak up whenever and wherever you
have something to say.
It is impossible for every citizen to personally attend
every meeting of social, civic, cultural or political significance
held in Gladewater and the Glade area . . . and yet, if it is]
accurately reported, each of us can share in it and become a j
part of it as it moves across the pages of your Daily Mirror, i
Call in your news of local events daily . . . Help us to
give you the best home town newspaper in America by
speaking up when you have something to say.

The Old Arbitrator
Two years ago this month, the polo grounds in New
York was the scene of an unusual tribute. It was “Bill Klem
Night” and fans and players showered the “Old Arbitrator”
When Bill Klem died in Coral Gables, his Florida win-
ter home this week, he had become a legendary figure in
the national game. Though out of active umpiring for a
decade, he became chief of staff of National league umpires,
responsible for training the younger men. He saw to it that
he was twice as busy as when he was calling ’em himself.
Bill Klem bridged an era in his department of the
game. When he joined up in 1905, he was the first umpire
to race to get “on top" of a play, a practice no longer neces-
sary with four judges on the field. Inciting to riot was com-
mon practice by managers dissatisfied with decisions, but
Klem quickly established his authority by drawing a line
when a player moved to the attack, and ordering him off
the field if he dared step across.
Umpires the country over still draw more boos than
cheers and Bill Klem had his share of both, but he was the
first umpire to be honored with the Baseball Writers as-
sociation plaque for “meritorious service” to baseball. He
joins the greats of the game in the Valhalla of the diamond.
