EDITORIAL . .
Where the Difference Lies
This may not sound very musical to the ears of
those whose job it is to clutter up the- local press
almost weekly with government propaganda but
when the editor's desk gets piled up so high with
this and that "essential" that he can't see over he
has to do something drastic. Ususally he musters
up courage enough to heave the "must" material
into the waste basket.
How many of our readers have seen paid ad
vertisements in their local paper by any govern
ment agencies conducting financial bureaus for
profit? Why is it that the individual or corporation
or company wishing to sell service buys space in
the local paper? Why do they not seek or de
mandspace to tell the people about their pro
ducts? The answer is that they are business
minded. They have something to sell and are will
ing to invest a little in printer's ink to tell pros
pective customers about it. Not so with the gov
ernment agencies. They take the dodge that the
editor should deem it a privilege to serve his read
ers by carrying their bids for business free of
charge, and we don't mind adding that their copy
writers always' have plenty to say. There usually
is a polite, kind-hearted sort of note to open with
that "we know you have many readers who will
be interested, etc., etc." and what can the editor do
about it. Well if all editors were to get together
and demand that the government agencies conduct
their business on the same basis as private, enter
prise and refuse to publish their publicity matter
except when paid for at the regular foreign rate
there might be more private enterprise, or at least
less government competition in business.
The newspapers have done a magnificent job
throughout the war in everything their services
could be of most value. They will continue to carry
on, trying to give their readers the best in the
news and other services for which they are de
signed. But that is not saying they do not get tired
of the endless chain of propaganda to which they
ire asked to give space propaganda which in
most instances could be done away with and pro
vide a direct check to the paper waste that has
the government worried.
It Won't Be the Same
We suppose we will get used to it in time, but
it's going to seem a bit strange to see the name
'erguson Motor Company blacked out on that fa
miliar corner. It has been there a good many years
a fixture in the community and one of those things
ve hadn't thought about ever changing. Time has
a way of changing things, however, and we have
to accept its rulings as inevitable. No doubt, ere
long we will look upon the new name in the same
light of familiarity as we have grown to look up-

"Generally within three or four
hours casualties in need are either
treated at far shore field hospitals
or loaded into landing craft and
ducks for evacuation to British
ports. Thus is avoided the critical
lapse of time between injury and
treatment which resulted in so
many fatalities in World War I.
