What Does It Mean
the Local Newspaper
THE local newspaper is the organ, the tool, of the territory
for which it is published. Its purpose, its motives, its des
tinies are guided only to a degree by its management. If the
management be competent, then the local newspaper largely re
flects the progressive spirit of the community as a whole.
The life blood of the local newspaper is advertising, its main
source of revenue. It must have advertising support in order
to exist, and the extent to which it is able to serve its readers is
measured by the advertising support given. However, the local
newspaper does not base its plea for advertisers on sentimental
reasons. Reaching, as it does, the majority of the buyers of its
field with each issue, it affords the merchant invaluable oppor
tunity to display his wares. The extent and the way in which
the merchant does this reflects to a material degree his pro
gressiveness. It is possible for the newspaper managment to
assist the merchant only to the extent the merchant permits.
THE same is largely true in publishing the news. It is possi
ble for the newspaper to gather only such news as comes to
the editor's attention. The small newspaper's revenue does not
permit of an elaborate newsgathering force. So-called "big
stories" are comparatively easy to report. But the multitude of
small personal items that make the paper meaty to its readers,
are available, very largely, only through reader cooperation.
If you enjoy reading, or having, a real live local newspaper,
it is up to you to cooperate. And if the newspaper makes errors
in reporting items in which you are interested, do not criticize
too severely if you did not report it.
The local newspaper attempts to print all the worth-while
news as correctly as possible. But its editor is not a mind
reader, and when rumor alone must be relied upon error is al
Cooperate for a better local neivspaper.
the Local Printshop
WHEN you run out of billheads the end of the month and
"haven't time to order them from Portland, Spokane, 'Frisco
or wherever, do you not appreciate being able to get a dupli
cate job at the local printer's wtihin a few hours? The local
printshop is equipped to do all kinds of good quality commercial
printing at reasonable prices plus personal service. But how
much thought does the local printer get when a smooth-tongued
outside printing salesman comes along, handing out cigars.
Surely, he quotes a lower price but not on the same quantities
bought at home. He figures on a year's supply of printing in
stead of a month's, and the prices he quotes are in most cases
no lower, and in many not as low, as like quantities can be pur
chased at home. Then, again, the local printer is on the job
every day to make good his guarantee of "work delivered as
There is no printing job which the local printer can not do,
or have done for you. True, he does not guarantee cut throat
prices, for he feels he is entitled to a reasonable profit, but he
does guarantee to meet the prices of any reputable firm with the
same or better quality printing.
And the local printshop is always on hand to aid in planning
The local printer also buys at home.
