Have you slopped to think that a newspaper usually reflects
the standing of Hie people of the community where it is published?
Do you know that a newspaper is usually what the people of a town
make it? Sometimes people excuse their lack of support to their
local paper by saying. " , (here's nothing lo il." What if every

The Tulsa World and the Daily Democrat could not exist
without the suppoit of the people of this town and the town would
not be what it is. and coul dnot long retain the commercial rating

the proper standing of a people of any community is to read the
paper published there.
