Andrews says: "Bishop Keener is credited with the staieineni that ii is merely a question of time with an editor: and. if be lives long enou he will lose every friend he has. short experience leads in. i.. believe thai he is right."

Otherwise, the editor makes enemies and supporters; just as other men do.
