     Again in NEW YORK, 22 August 1977, pg. 7, col. 1:  "A mocked-up front
page of the 'newspaper of record' with that famous slogan 'All the News
That's Fit to Print' appeared on page 22."
     I don't remember "newspaper of record" in that 1950s HARPER'S article
that used "Old Grey Lady."

I have a sense of having seen "Old Grey Lady [opt: of xxx Street]" in reference
to _The Times_ of London, as well as her cisatlantic younger sister. Confirm or
correct, anyone?
