The Nelson Photo News



Forum and Aginum

Most newspapers covered the disastrous earth-quake of May 24 adequately, but none gave its readers a better insight into the extent of the quake than the "Nelson Evening Mail". We hand to the reporters, photo-graphers and all others concerned in producing the May 24 issue of the "Mail", a great big bouquet. Because of disruption of communications the full extent of the disaster was not known until late that morning. Yet the deadline was met and readers were given as graphic account of the quake by ie afternoon. Only those involved in newspaper work can appreciate the magnitude of the task confronting the staff under the conditions existing, and we have no hesitation in commending all involved in the production of the "Mail" of May 24 for a "magnificent first-day coverage.
