Mrs. Otto Lindstrom.
There is one thing a newspaperman doesn't like to do and that
is hirp on a certain subject, but the press toay is confronted with
a senou shortage of newsprint and that calls for repeated discus
ion on the subject.
Instead of improving, as was to be expected, the truth is that
newsprint is scarcer now than during the war. Quotas established
in that trying period somehow covered the demand and the papers
carried on without too great a cut in advertising space. Whatever
sacrifice was made was in the common interest and publishers
were glad to cooperate to the fullest extent. With the close of the
war, it was expected that industry could turn its attention to re
conversion, a matter in which the newspapers were directly con
cerned because of a heavier volume of advertising. It was not an
ticipated that paper mills would be short-handed, but it seems
that many woodsmen and other workers of the industry did not re
turn to their pre-war jobs while others chose to strike and tie up
This situation is giving publishers and wholesale paper houses
a real headache. Quotas are tighter now than during the war, al
though on a voluntary basis. There is scarcely a newspaper in the
land that could not add extra pages if the publisher could look
forward to an increase in the output cf newsprint. Country week
lies more and more resemble a shoppers guide type of publication.
This is not the desire of the publishers, for they like to feed their
readers a balanced diet of rrs and adverrir.in?, on the average of
a fifty-fifty basis, yet they cannot afford to turn advertising away.
The day will come when those advertising inches will be needed
and, we hope the day is not far off when we will be able to offer
advertisers all the space they want.
In the meantime don't be surprised if your local paper or the
old home town paper comes to you printed on colored poster. It
won't be a special edition. The publisher will simply be meeting
an emergency while awaiting a small shipment of newsprint.
Avoid Traffic Jams
One of the headaches confronting traffic officers in connec
tion with the Rodea is the matter of parking cars at the grounds.
Space is limited in the immediate area and on the two big days of
the show cars are parked along the highway with little regard for
passing traffic. Then following the show every car driver is of the
opinion that he, or she, must get out first and this leads to a traf
Rodeo officials and traffic officers are asking that cars be left
in town. It is but a short- walk from the center of town to the
grunds. Many cars are parked as far east as Main street is west
of the grounds and in the interest of safety why not leave your
car in town where it will not be exposed to damage or add to the
congestion at the Rodeo park entrance.
The Parade's The Thing
No celebration or show of whatever type is complete without
a parade, and no other feature holds the universal interest mani
fested in a parade. The chap who wrote the popular song, "I Love
a Parade," caught the spirit and coupled the words and music in a
manner aptly describing the emotions of the average human be
ing, either as a participant or as a witness, when the real life pic
ture of the community is passing in review.
Thus it is that as Rodeo time approaches, the question arises,
"what are you entering in the parade this year?' While that may
be a secret you are guarding zealously the question is a manifesta
tion of the interest held by the public. Nevertheless, what are you
doing to make this year's parade bigger and better than ever?
That's what the parade directors would like to know and some
thing they will have to wait for just as the rest of the people are
doing. The secret of a good parade is the surprise element and if
we knew what the entries were going to be on September 7
we wouldn't spoil your anticipated pleasure by "spilling the beans."
