We Need Your Help Right Now!
The gravest problem The Toiler has had to
face during the entire past year is of raising suf
ficient funds to purchase the paper upon which to
print. The scarcity of print paper alone is enough
to drive most publishers frantic with anxiety.
When scarcity of stock and lack of sufficient
funds to purchase are combined in one problem, a
problem which must be faced every week and
that has been our problem then you may realize
the task we have had these long months since print
paper began steadily to climb from SIX cents per
pound to FIFTEEN cents.
The tumble of prices in some lines, Ford
automobiles and sugar for instance, has in no way
affected the print paper situation. Prices are
maintaining their previous high level, the scarcity
still continues without sign of change. We feel
fortunate if we can obtain white print stock now
and then, and we have to be thankful for even the
poorest and grayest paper that is sold us for our
fifteen cents per sixten ounces.
But this outstanding fact, we have discovered
in our many months of anxious quest of paper,
and that is: that we can always get the paper,
no matter how 'scarce' it is IF WE HAVE THE
MONEY TO PAY SPOT CASH. SPOT CASH
seems to be the dictum of BIG BUSINESS. And
Big Business rules. We have to admit that. So
our only salvation is to get the Cash, and have it
ready when we need it.
An'1 that, comrades is the theme of this ap
peal, GASH, You know what we mean. We have
had to make this same appeal before. We may have
to do so again. But we know that as long as con
ditions in the capitalist world make it necessary
for us to appeal to you for help, that you will
give it just as willingly as you have done before.
Here's your chance to help. If you believe in
The Toiler ; if you want to see it continue in the
fight; if you believe it is a GOOD THING for
the WORKERS to have a paper like The Toiler
then we say that you should GIVE A LIFT, NOW
when it will do the most good.
