II the "home papers" are to-be sent
to all our soldiers and sailors and
there, men and women, engaged in
war work abroad, this must be done
ky the public generally or by interest
ed parties In each community.
The ruling ot the War Industries
Board in reference to daily newspa
pers, published August 6, says:
"Copies may be sent free to for
mer employees who are in the war
service .and copjes may be sent
tree to libraries ot institutions
recognized by the Government,
such as the Red Cross, M. C. A.,
X. of C, etc. Copies should not be
sent to Individual soldiers unless
formerly employed by the newspa-
The ruling of the War Industries
Jtoard in reference to country weekly
papers, published August 23, pro
"No publisher may give free cop
ies of his paper except for actual
service rendered and except to the
camp libraries and hospitals or
canteens of organizations recognez
d by the Government etc.
"No publisher shall send his pub
Ication to anyone below the public
It will thus be seen that all news
papers which heretofore have been
ending free copies to the soldiers
abroad and all newspapers that have
keen contributing a portion of their
sabscription price in order that the
public might be encouraged to send
the newspapers to soldiers, will have
to discontinue those practices.
In other words, if the soldiers are
to have their "home papers" ot which
ajbey stand so much in need and which
- tire them so much delight and com
tort, the people will have to suddIv
he money for the full paid subscrip
The newspaper has no option in the
matter, in view of the very business-
Ike ruling of the War Industries
Board, which is seeking to prevent
- any consumption of print paper with-
wl an adequate return therefor.
If the public will respond with
prompt donations for sending the pa
pers, every boy from Crook county
wiu m time receive nis nome paper.
