Pay a Few Pennies a Day on Our Easy Terms! Why should our son have a newspaper route? The living is good. Plenty of money, nice home, nice furnishings, another salary raise in sight; we've never had it so good. Why should our son manage a newspaper route? Most any educator or businessman wfll tell you why in three simple words: it builds character. Oftentimes the youngster who grows up in comfortable circumstances and who gets his weekly "handout" from dad never realizes the value of money or the efforts required to make it and manage it, until he'» on his own. By then attitudes and habits are difficult to reverse. But the newspaperboy quickly learns valuable lessons that stick. While making money on a newspaper route is important, the experience of getting* the-job-done-no-matter-what is more important. When through route management, responsibility and self-confidence are acquired at this early age, a newspaperboy has an advantage over other youngsters that no amount of money can buy. If you're still wondering whether your son would benefit from newspaper route management, ask a community businessman or civic leader, or better still, phone our Circulation Department Blytheville Courier News
