The meeting was called to order on b nday, Oct. 27th ult., by Pres ident A. P. Jordan, who stated the object of the meeting. He called attention to the recommendation of the State Association that weekly papefcj increase their sub scription rates from $1.50 to $2.00 per year. t s I he question was discussed from various standpoints and was the sentiment of all present that something should be done to cur tail the loss now sustained by most of the weeklies in charging $1.50 per year at the prices which they are now forced to pay for news print paper. It was suggested that if the weekly newspapers should adont a strictly cash basis, so that they would receive the full amount if each subscription, instead of los ing from 15 to 25 per cent of their subscription accounts in bad debts, it would then be unneces sary to raise the price. The fol lowing resolution was read and a- dopted: Whereas, The extreme high price which we are forced to pay tor news print paper renders it necessary for weekly newspapers to either increase their present subscription rates, or else adopt a system to prevent any loss on sub scription accounts, and "Whereas, We are opposed to the principle of allowing the "dead-beat" to force an increased price upon people who pay their just debts; therefore, be it Resolved. That from and af ter Jan. 1st. 1917. the members of the DeSoto County Press Asso ciation will mail no papers to subscrbers who have not paid their subscriptions in advance. "Resolved, That those who really want the paper and intend to pay for it will welcome the op portunity to pay in advance, rath er than stand a further increase in the subscription price, while those who might shirk the obligation will be weeded out, and both the newspaper and the prompt sub scriber will profit thereby." Attention was called to the fact that certain advertising agencies doing business with members of this Association were not meeting their bills promptly, and the fol- owing resolutions respecting them were presented and adopt ed: "Whereas, The DeSoto County ress Association has been con tiacting space with certain adver Using agencies who have failed to pay their bills, some of them be- .-; TTvi - Round About JSirida The fall term of circuit court opei ed at Lake City with a fuU docket.
