wending their way homeward in
their roadster when they were
suddenly waylaid by a gang who
ruthlessly tore the newly wedded

The Enterprise is printed main-
ly to serve this community, but
there is a limit to the endurance
and the patience of the office
force, hence we find it necessary
to rule that hereafter, in order
to get church announcements,
school notes, programs, etc. in the
paper they will have to be handed
[k in not later than Tuesday noon.
For Ihe past three or four weeks
we have had to set more than
half xri the matter appearing in
the Enterprise on press day. We
cannot stand the strain, and as
we know that ordinarily such
items as we have mentioned ■ can
come in early in the week as well
as not, we make the above rule,
and intend to stick to it unless
there is some valid reason for
the copy being late, in which
event we will try to accommodate
if possible. Naturally we desire
to print all of the local, news
available, and we delay this
^ class of matter until Thursday.
But, honest, folks, we c?«n’t set
all of the type and then print the
paper in one day—we do not
intend to try hereafter.
