The meeting was called to order
on b nday, Oct. 27th ult., by Pres
ident A. P. Jordan, who stated the
object of the meeting. He called
attention to the recommendation
of the State Association that
weekly papefcj increase their sub
scription rates from $1.50 to $2.00
per year. t s
I he question was discussed
from various standpoints and was
the sentiment of all present that
something should be done to cur
tail the loss now sustained by most
of the weeklies in charging $1.50
per year at the prices which they
are now forced to pay for news
It was suggested that if the
weekly newspapers should adont
a strictly cash basis, so that they
would receive the full amount if
each subscription, instead of los
ing from 15 to 25 per cent of their
subscription accounts in bad
debts, it would then be unneces
sary to raise the price. The fol
lowing resolution was read and a-
Whereas, The extreme high
price which we are forced to pay
tor news print paper renders it
necessary for weekly newspapers
to either increase their present
subscription rates, or else adopt a
system to prevent any loss on sub
scription accounts, and
"Whereas, We are opposed to
the principle of allowing the
"dead-beat" to force an increased
price upon people who pay their
just debts; therefore, be it
Resolved. That from and af
ter Jan. 1st. 1917. the members
of the DeSoto County Press Asso
ciation will mail no papers to
subscrbers who have not paid their
subscriptions in advance.
"Resolved, That those who
really want the paper and intend
to pay for it will welcome the op
portunity to pay in advance, rath
er than stand a further increase in
the subscription price, while those
who might shirk the obligation
will be weeded out, and both the
newspaper and the prompt sub
scriber will profit thereby."
Attention was called to the fact
that certain advertising agencies
doing business with members of
this Association were not meeting
their bills promptly, and the fol-
owing resolutions respecting
them were presented and adopt
