As your community newspaper, wn I «»-*«»-• waul to thank you for the superb 1 v response which you gave us in our attempt to "run the record" on distant .state officials. A good newspaper docs not meddle in local politics. A good newspaper docs not deliberately, of its own accord, got mixed up in politics. Either it is attacked, and has to defend itself; or, it happens to penetrate some complicated political setup in the state capital which needs explaining to tht common everyday man, whose tax money is being dissipated. XXX I want to say that this newspaper has always stood for a principle. It has never "elected" a candidate. H has never attacked one man in order to elect another. None df our people is in politics, •mil we have never acropted'ii political favor of any sort. H may Vecm to be !m. austere and uncompromising belief—I hut a newspaper f-hall not use its editorial pow- or to advance the self-interest of i's proprietors—and yet, only as un institution deserves faith do the people extend it their faith. Newspapers today gel sufficient money from their circulation and advertising. They are therefore the one agency to which the community has the ab- .solute right lo look for verified fuels ;md honc.sl public criticism. XXX Every political campaign awakens in the defeatist's heart this question: "What does it matter whether government be honest or crooked'.' Il won't affect inc." But it docs matter.
