"The editor tells me at the advertisements are what ays for the paper, and that he could not run it from the sub scription money alone.* Of course i he wants all the subscribers he can get. But when Aunt Emily Lucas stops her subscription be cause the new size of the pa per doesn't fit her pantry shelves she shouldn't be surprised that the editor doesn't go out of busi ness.
