dc.description.abstract This thesis used a questionnaire to survey use of the editorial conference and other editorial practices at daily newspapers in Indiana. The responses from seventy-four dailies were reported. Nine were found to use the editorial conference as frequently as once a week. The thesis identified those dailies and examined the details of their conference: their members, the job-titles of their members, their editorial output, the times and places of their meetings, the functions of the conference, and the reported advantages and disadvantages of the conference. In addition, the thesis identified the persons, by job-title, who write editorials at Indiana dailies not reporting use of the editorial conference. It tabulated and compared editorial output by job-title and, also, identified sources of non-staff written editorials. It examined editorial output at the dailies ranked according to their circulation, the number of persons who were reported as writing editorials and the process the dailies reported that they use to select the subjects and to decide the attitudes of editorials.
