A Relief Measure
These are times when everybody is hoping for relief.
Here is some for The Herald's Subscribers.
Your Herald will not be stopped even if your time
has expired.
But if you pay your subscription within 10 days
after expiration you are entitled to a 12 per cent cash
This offer applies to both in and out of the state
subscriptions and means $1.75 in Montana; $2.20 out
side Montana—if paid in advance.
This Subscription Moratorium and Cash Discount
Offer is Good Until January 10, 1933.
The Cash in Advance Subscription Policy, adopted
years ago, has proven highly satisfactory to The
Herald and to virtually all its subscribers. But to hold
stubbornly to that policy in the face of the present,
unprecedented business and price situation would be
unfair and unwise.
This offer does not mean the Cash in Advance
policy has been discarded, but temporarily suspend
ed. It does not mean the price has been cut. If The
Herald is not worth the 4 cents per week asked for it
it is not worth taking at all. The news part of the
paper actually costs much more than the subscription
The Herald has a fine, large, interested family of
readers and wants to hold them.
The most common plaint we hear is:
The Herald'—we miss it, but
This offer is our answer to that appeal.
