We Believe...
r i he brevity ot this editorial does not necessarily a
mean that your new editor is not, at times, a bit long J
. winded, but rattier a sign oi tne “changing times. |
I i hat is, the changeover in style ot the ^'Vi>PaP^i
* has caused quite a commotion, and that, added to 1
contusion ot the management change has mute ou 1
'space this week. In short, just not room enough tori
idle talk. A few things which we believe of upper-1
■ most importance at this time are discussed briefly 1
R116Whether anybody reads editorials is somewhat ml
► question, hut tor those who may be interested™^
I would like to express briefly our intended genera ,
■ policy. The editorial policy of this newspaper vi
I be directed solely by the editor. In short, we will
■ print what we think, if it he within the bounds of ^
I dignity and not detrimental to the welfare of the
I people of Holmes County, whom we serve. We are j
. |subject to and will welcome comments, cm.csm, and ,
|influence by education. *1
8 We believe in the sovereignty of the soul, hvery |
l f man should be his ow n supreme ruler, to live his life
* as he honestly believes right. We believe in the sever- *
lleignty of each community, municipality, county, .
state, and the nation, is that order ... and our efforts J
| will he directed along that line. . *
Because so many people are concerned to varying ^
A degrees with this newspaper, we are reluctant to
I bring about irpjor changes, hut adjustments must
I come if we are going to publish a paper worthy of
t the support of our people and operate on a sound
financial basis. *
Few changes now
Our first order ot business will be to arrange a
time schedule L>y which we hope within a lew' weeks
to have each issue out on time (nud-altemoon on
Wednesdays). To do this we must set deadlines lor
all material, news and advertising, and strictly ad
here to thw-.i. As stated in an advertisement elsewhere
tn this issue our general deadline will be 1 uesday
noon with w ant ads and late news to be accepted un
til 5 p.iii. l uesdays.
To further facilitate a regular schedule lor your
newspaper we are urging all news contributors, cor
respondents and advertisers to let us have copy as
early as possible. Several days, or even a week before
publication will be a big help. Whether it looks
reasonable or not, it still takes a week to get out a
w eekly newspaper.
Our business policy will be aimed towards the
achievement of the impossible . . . pleasing every
body!_____—
