Prefatory And Personal
In making his initial how to
his readers, as Editor of the
News, the writer is reminded of
a story about Mark Twain. On
one occasion there being no one
to introduce him to his audience,
the humorist had to do it himself.
He said: “Ladies and gentlemen,

therefore constitute its principal
features, and for this purpose he
asks the cooperation of all.

water fund, of which he had
charge, and a strange silence on
his part concerning his where-a-

honesty. They cannot believe
that he was intentionally dishon­

due to carelessness in collecting
