make such a request of every editor
in the course of a single month. Our
community is filled with people who
want us to give front page position
to an article, that no more real inter-
est than the advertisements for which
we receive money.
But our local friends are not the
worst offenders. Frequently we can
accomodate them although we realize
we are giving away something for
which we should receive cold cash.
The great offenders are the na-
tional manufacturers who have high-
ly paid publicity experts to open our
columns to so called news that should
appear only upon the payment of our
regular advertising rates. For these
spacecraftsrs we keep a sharp look-
out. we have a large waste basket
that receives this matter as quickly
as we open the envelopes and detect
the purpose behind it all.
Our only objection is against the
waste. Most of this is harmless in
effect. It need not be regarded as
propoganda. But it is advertising
and will always be so regarded by us.
It represents just as much waste
unless it is also regarded in the same
way by the advertiser.
