The many readers of the Columbia
Record were disappointed when the
paper came to Newberry on Tuesday
afternoon. There was not a word in
it about the meeting of the State executive
committee. And they didn't
know whether the committee hlad
declared the result of the primary
election or not. Surely the committee
had finished its work before the Record
went to press, but then maybe the
Record did not consider that news.
The price of print paper continues
to go up. And the supply is limited, the
paper dealers say. The opportunity
now to get a paper like The Herald
and News for a whole year for only
one dollar may never come again.
And this opportunity is given oniy
until the first of October, and then
all who are not paid in advance will
toe dropped. INYfe shall regret to do it,
but there is no other course. Every'body
but a fool newspaper publisher |
would increase the price as the cost of
production went up, but the newspaper
publisher thinks he can go on at'
the same old price.
Supervisor Safnple is doing some
good work on the road from Prosperity
to the steel bridge anU on down
to Holly's ferry. The road is being
made 3<y feet wide and rounded up and
and it does look good to see a road
that wide. The road should have a
top dressing of gravel or something

so as iu b.ecp il iruxu vutnug up vYAieti
the winter nains begin. We (hope the
supervisor can soon get on the Piedmont
and the Appalachian highways.
Both these roads need to 'be widened
and to have the holes filled.
National pay-up week is October 2-7.

not start something like that in Newberry.
It is a good thing to call at- J
