A while ago, I received a letter from an esteemed friend that startled me. He declared that the Tribune’s motto, “Being bound to swear to the dogmas of no master,” was a defiance of God. He suggested that we change it to “Being bound to the dogmas of no master but The Master.” For a moment, I was almost panicked into changing a motto that has stood unquestioned and unchallenged as the guiding thought of my family newspaper for over fifty years. When the letter reached me, the day’s edition had already gone to press. By next day, I had decided to wait and reflect. Now I have decided not to do it at all. The Tribune could not live without God. This newspaper has no fear of men, thank God for that, but its entire public record has been one of such complete humility to God that I can hardly take the criticism of my friend seriously.
