A Newspaper Problem
The newspapers of C(algary are tup against a prob-
lemi that is not wholly unifainiliar to newspapers else-
where. There are said to be several hundred uiien
iii the place who are without eionployment, and who
are seekiing relief froii thie city. Some of the news-
papers have seen fit to publish tie faect, and they
tare coming ii for criticislo froiri those wlho contend
that the publication of strch inforrnation is calet-
lalted to do liarrii to thie conimmuiiity by driving off
capital and furnishing other parts of the counitry
with argumnenlts for tise otgainst tlie West.
Ilere is one of the problels by whicli every
niewspaper is at tirmes coiifronited. It inust choose
betweenl its (tutv to itself a.s a faithfull recorder of
daily events, and its duty to the co?iimunitv. Event-
1u1ll it woull(l probiablv be fourld that the news-
paper woiild best di-scalarge its duty to the coi??nmun-
itv hv reli?ai?i?lg loval to its owni responsibilities.
Tlic ideal of a self-respecctiig niewspaper is to. give
.ll the legitiniuate riews, aid tho give it fairlv and
frankly, leaving the consequeniice-s to take care of
teliirlselves. Once a iiewspaper begins to trifle with
hiistory, either by the suppression or the modifica-
tion> of facts, it begiilns to lose its influerice, and the
loss of a newspaper's i?nfluenei e is ??ot restricted to
itself but is felt by tlie whole community.
i good deal of the Iiistorv of the past is regarded
to-(iav witli franlk suspicior. The true historical
uspiwirit Was lackiuig. Thlie writers vwere in?filenced by
1 oifther considlerations than the solitarv desire to dis-
c (?er alld fpriselnt tlie truth. So?r?e vwere ?influericed
libyv piatriotic iiotives; others iby mfotives less worthv.

Creating New Business for a Country
The flivertising pages of a United States c(oun-
try weekly newspaper ssuggest a creative plan which

It is difficult to iidtluce tile lmerchants of a village
or town in whicli no inewspaper is pblilished to ad-
vertise very liberally in the tnewspaper of a neigh-
boring torwn. Thev would willingly advertise iin i
homte newspaper, if suelh were established, but do
rtot feel that the ineighborinlg newspaper, eveii al-
thoulgh it covered tlie saiile silljs(ripitioii list, woi()lld
i,e anything like as effective a,n advertisinig gnieditin?n.
Tlie United States newspaper i fmet tlie sit!ation

papf?er. IAn entire page vwouill le giveni iup to tlie
local iews of eacih of tlie ueighborirng newspaper-
less towns, while the opposite one would carry the ad-
vertising of the miierclhants of that town, with ai
booster line (such as, "Milanl Bids for Business")
in large display type iacross the top of the i>a<e.
