Mr. H. Burtman, who, on October last assumed control of the News-Journal. Mr. Burtman is a native of Boston, Mass., where he was born in 1880. In 1895 he went to New York and learned the printing trade. There he remained eight years, he left New York to hold a position when he had full charge of one of the largest printing plants of that city. In 1903 he went back to Boston, where he opened a printing establishment of his own and operated it for six years. In 1909 he concluded to go west, and came to Omaha, where he had relatives, and was connected with the World-Herald. In October, 1910, he made a contract with H. M. Kellogg to take the



formanship of the News-Journal, and remained in that position until October 1st, 1912, when he bought the News-Journal from Mr. Kellogg, and has ever since tried to give its readers their money's worth by putting out a newsy paper.

     Mr. Burtman will continue the policy under which the News-Journal has grown and progressed as heretofore, its constant aim being to serve the people and to stand always for the best interests of Fullerton and Nance county. The News-Journal, now the largest, circulates in Nance county, and will strive to keep it growing by giving its readers a clean newspaper in every sense that the term implies.
