    "The life of a reporter isn't always a desk job..........................



    Men and women of the press have often been the targets for stray bullets and threats, of those who would keep their names and deeds out of print..........



    Journalists have been putting their lives on the line ever since reporter Henry Stanley trecked through the jungles to utter his immortal line "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?".................................... till recently, when sports writer Max Case won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing dangerous gangsters bribing American basketball players..............................



    To get the inside story, reporters often change their appearance - like the way Kitty Hanson earned her Pulitzer Prize by playing a prostitute in New York............................



    The Yulnerability of this kind of newsman in real life is pointed out in Victor Reisel's (?) case.............
