ONE CENT-THE DAY BOOK-ONE CENT
FROM A BROAD-MINDED READER
TO DAY BOOK READERS:
Here's a letter from a prominent and very active church woman, whose
sympathies are with the working class: "I take pleasure in filling out the
enclosed blank. I feel that an 'adless' paper should be encouraged. Your
articles on Wilson are clear-put and convincing. I get news in The Day
Book that I cannot get elsewhere. The serial 'Confessions of a Wife' is
replete with practical psychology. I am glad to read a paper which is
devoted to, the interests of labor. It is not necessary to say that I disagree
with you totally on some points, but I believe you are honest, and so long as
I believe that I shall take your paper."
1 I value this letter because I know the author and have discussed with
her some of the issues on which we disagree. I admire her broad-mindedness.
Some readers seem to take it as a personal offense when I write
opinions they don't agree with. 1 don't feel that way about it when readers
have opinions I don't agree with. We'll get farther by respecting one an
other's opinions and pulling together for the things on which we can agree.
I find that by respecting their right to do their own thinking, I have no
trouble at all getting along with Republicans, Democrats, Socialists, Pro
hibitions, Catholics, Protestants and Jews. Maybe it's because I look past
their labels and see them only as people. And that's how I want The Day
Book to see them. Sincerely,
N. D. COCHRAN.
