Demonstrating is Gary Gumm. A JOB WELL DONE — Convenience to the customer is emphasized by The Herald and its Newsboys. Final step in the service is delivery of The Herald to the door, where Mrs. Richard Beatty, 831 S. Poplar, finds her copy. With Mrs. Bcatty is daughter, Jenifer, and pet, Sandy. L.L FOLDED FOR DELIVERY - After stories are written and ads laid out, after pictures are engraved and the press rolls- then The Herald Newsboys take over. One of the tasks of getting The Herald to the reader, is the folding, demonstrated by Bill Graham. To Newsboys Of America: Today when the nation salutes its young news- paperboys, I send my personal greetings and good wishes to each of you. The American public appreciates the valuable service you perform, but even more, the nation's newspaper readers appreciate the fact that you are a vigorous example to the world of American youth at its best; — industrious, enterprising and learning to be loyal and responsible citizens. You are doing more than accepting a regular responsibility and earning an independent place in your community. Although these things are important, you are also demonstrating the strength of character and integrity upon which our country was founded and upon which its future, especially in these times of world crisis, will be dependent. Many a noted citizen and national leader looks back upon a successful working career, begun as a newspaperboy. I wish,you well, for you deserve it. John F. Kennedy President of the United States Ottawa Herald Each year for the past six years The Ottawa Herald and the Inland Press Association hav* presented awards to outstanding Ottawa Newspaper Boys. The awards are given by the press associatioi to be presented by the paper and are based on hig'j standards of customer relations, delivery, colle* tion of accounts, sales promotion and civic pride. The Ottawa Herald wishes to take this oppot* tunity, Newspaper Boy Day, to thank its "littll merchants" for the fine job they do and to remind them and their customers that the little merchants of today are the big merchants of tomorrow.
