Mr. Thomas said: "Your committee on program might have just as appropriately put he subject "Running a War in Newspa per Time,' or a 'Time Running a Newspaper in a War.' "Newspapers all over the country have been mined and torpedoed and shelled and gassed. A wise and ben eficent congress has rewarded the press with a complicated and harass ing zone postage law and the postmaster-general seems to have beee an accessory before the fact in this ac tion. "We face increased demands upon our time and space with ever rising coBts, shortage of labor, higher paper, higher postage,, curtailed rev enue, and small opportunity to In crease the price on the only two things we have for sale circulation and advertising.

War Nation's Sole Business "There is a war on, and the whole and sole business of this nation is war. Let us do our full part as man fully and uncomplainingly as the sol diers we are sending to the trenches. Our toes may be trodden upon ana our fingers pinched by the rulings of government departments which have little or no appreciation of the news paper business but this should not affect our loyalty or our zeal for the comon cause of the country, "If we cannot have, sugar in our coffee, let us take our coffee straight as long as we can get the coffee. "Our own policy will be to conserve every resource and eliminate every unnecessary expense we can, but we must maintain our papers at as high a standard as possible.

Eliminating Some Papers "All of us realize that there are too (many publications in the country and these times of adversity will have ome good results In eliminating a few of them. Any of us can easily name a score of papers in Florida which serve no economic purpose and which the state would be better off without. When these pass away there should be more room for those who survive. "Most towns with two newspapers would be better off with one, those with three should have one or two. Fortunately for the man who goes, the shipyards are running full time at high wages, the fighting Is good In the trenches, and the cotton and cas tor bean fields are yearning for his presence. In any of these occupa tions he may have the advantage over the man he leaves In undisputed possession of the journalistic field."
