THE PRESS MAKES GOOD
Whether the plans of the NRA
prove successful or result in failure,
it will not be through any fault of the
press of the country.
City dailies, country weeklies,
magazines, religious papers, all have
given more than generous publicity
to the president and his plans for
national recovery. They have sup-
ported the administration in its ef-
forts to a greater extent than ever
known before in history, except in
time of war.
If finance, industry, business and
the consuming public will exhibit the
same degree of loyalty and sincere
effort that has been freely extended
by the press there will be no ques-
tion aS the final outcome.
The press is doing its part, and
without compensation. — Grapeland
