Dewey Defeats Truman Headline photo, LIFE MagazineHEADLINES are the large, bold text featured at the top of the front page of a newspaper to introduce the lead story of the day. Headlines are usually written in the present tense and without articles such as "a" and "the", sometimes the attempt to keep headlines short and sweet lead to unintended meaning, for example- "Local High School Dropouts Cut in Half".

Also the competition between newspapers to be the first to publish important news have led to erronous announcements. A picture of newly elected President of the United States Harry S Truman, holding up the prematurely distributed November 4, 1948 edition of the Chicago Tribune at Union Station in St. Louis, Missouri with the headline, DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN, illustrates this phenomena.

FYI ~ herald (n.) a person who annouces important news; a royal or official messenger; “Hark the herald angels sing”.

Greatest Record in Sport Falls, Miracle Mile for British Medical Student

The greatest barrier in world sport was finally crossed yesterday when Roger Bannister became the first man to run a mile in less than four minutes.
Mr. Bannister, a 25 year old medical student, broke the record on Oxford University's famous cinder track at Iffley Road, during a match between the University and the Amateur Athletic Association.
The four minute mile was once considered by experts to present an impossible challenge to the human race and has always been seen as the 'Holy Grail' of the middle distance runner. In the breaking of the world record held for nine years by the Swede, Gunder Hagg, Bannister has secured for himself a permanent place in the pantheon of the greatest sportsmen of all time.
