Through the courtesy of the Times-Picayune are we able to distribute our edition-today much reduced in size tn account of this shortage of paper. In curtailing this edition we were compelled to leave out of this issue more than eight columns of advertisements, and this is our apology and explanation to those advertisers whose copy came in last and will not be represented in this issue. Beginning this next issue The Herald will be compelled to use every effort to save paper. The Herald will be reduced to the smallest number of pages necessary to carry out our advertising contracts and to give the Algerines the same amount of local news as it has al ways given. We have made a sacrifice in this issue of over eight columns of advertisements to make room for local reading matter. MUST PAY SUBSCRIPTION. On account of the uncertainty of being supplied with news stock from the paper mills, we must ask that help be given all newspapers i overlooking for a time small editions and paying promptly for your paper. Beginning January 1st, 1920, The Herald will be sent only to those of our subscribers who are not in arrears. TO OUR ADVERTISERS. Beginning January 1st, all papers going to advertisers will be discontinued unless *subscription for one year, paid in advance, is received. SAVE YOUR OLD PAPERS. The price of old paper is also beginning to climb and there will shortly be a demand for this waste paper. A mill is now In course of construction in the city to produce newsprint paper from used material or second-hand stock. SHORTAGE NOT A MATTER OF PRICE. The present shortage of newsprint paper is not a matter of price, according to the manufacturers, who lay the blame, to the shortag of raw material, but other interests say that a gigantic trust is cause and it is squeezing the life blood out of the printing ind But whatever the cause, the effect is just the same. ulty wish to extend a most cordial invitation to the members of the ('o-operative Club, the parents of the pupils and friends of the school to be present. An elaborate Christ Wias program has been prepared and will be rendered by the pupils. POLl TAX IPAYMENT 'IGEI). Benjamin T.
