ABSTRACT
This article presents information on changes made to the periodical "Time" since the days of U.S. editor and publisher Henry Luce. It is reported that in the days of Luce, the charge against the periodical used to be that it was facile and irrelevant. Usually the objection was raised by liberals, who described it as slanted. Recently the periodical has scrapped its Letters page, that delightful collection of the preceding week's news, and replaced it with a section called "Forum," wherein readers are encouraged to run on for two and three whole paragraphs of civic-minded drivel. Time has thus purged itself of its famous idiosyncrasies, leaving a miscellaneous flotsam of comforting stock phrases.
