"I must also mention that I met John Winant, ambassador to Eng- and, there. Admiral Stark, General Spatz and many others were also present.

Barry of Belmond; Peter Ackerman and Carle Tender of Dows; Walter Zenor of Woolstock and Joe Bell NOTICE To Subscribers Who Get Their Globe-Gazette by Carrier Many of our newspaper carrier boys have reported that they are having difficulty in making collections, sometimes having to make several calls before receiving their money. This is especially true of homes where both husband and wife are employed and neither is at home when the carrier boy calls, although many other subscribers tail to make their payments promptly. In order to understand why failure to pay promptly every week works an injustice on your carrier boy, it is necessary to know how he operates. He is a merchant in his own right, and the Mason City Globe-Gazette is the merchandise he sells. He buys his papers from us and sells them to you at a profit. This profit is his only payment for his services in delivering the paper to your home each day. He pays for his papers each week, after making his collections. When he is undble to collect from his subscribers, he is thereby forced to pay for his papers out of his own capital. Thus when you fail to pay him promptly, he has to become your "banker" and furnish the money to pay for the papers you hove received. This is often a hardship, for although your individual bill may be a trifling, if it is multiplied many times through failure to collect from other subscribers as well, it may become impossible for the young merchant to finance his newspaper route. Your kindness in having the money ready for the newspaper boy on his collection day will save him many steps by making call-backs unnecessary, and it will enable him to meet the expense of his business. If you are unable to be home on collection days, it may be possible for you to set a definite hour when your carrier boy may call for his money. If so, won't you please advise him the next time you see him? Your consideration will be much appreciated, and your carrier boy will be able to serve you better. Regular collections are made by the newspaper boys on Friday night and Saturday morning. The Mason City Globe-Gazette 18, in the /^. ^^S.^I'*T*?si3SISS2aS3;^3^^.^
