    About Your Subscription
Recently the Progress mailed out
a form notice to all subscribers,
who are in ariears. This state­
ment, showed the date of expira­
tion of the subscription and was
intended as a reminder and not as
a ' ‘dun” .
We are trying to publish a 6rst
class weekly paper and hope to con­
tinue improving. It is costing us
tnote than $ i. per year to print,
edit ai.d mail 52 issues of the Ptog-
ress, but few papers or periodicals
try to make a profit on their cir­
culation, as the income is derived
from tne advertisers.
The Progress today has a hne
Clackamas County, with over 500
paid subscribers and it is fair to as­
sume that each paper is read by
three to four memla-rs of a family,
consequently the Progress covers
its field well, but not as thorough­
ly as we hope to.
We do not want to lose a single
subscriber, but cannot afford to
send the paper free. If vou re­
ceived a notice, showing vour sub­
scription to be behind, we trust
that you will see your wav clear to
pav up and renew. If, for anv
reason you cannot pav at this time,
if you will notify us, we will gladly
continue the paper until such time
as vou can afford to pay.
The Portland papers and in fact
a'l well cot ducted publications go
hv this same rule, namely the sub­
scription is stopped at date of e x ­
Kindly advise us if vou want us
to stop the paper but better still ad­
vise us to continue same, otherwise
we cannot afford to.
