Of all these things we are mindful. The Belt Valley Times is
grateful for the generous support of its subscribers, for the pat

improved conditions in the Belt Valley and for a moderately suc
cessful year, it is thankful for the fact that the best interest, as
the editor sees it, of the people who dwell in the valley of Bek
creek is its directing policy. May the new year bring added bless
ings to all of us.
