So Is $1162.50 To Us.
The generally depressed business conditions have slowed

affected by it.
Not only industry, but the individual has been
In this office the most serious outcome of the depression is
the fact that collections are so slow that from week to week we
take in scarcely enough cash to meet the weekly pay rolls.
It is embarrassing to have to make such a state of affairs
public, but the situation has become so acute that we are forced
to swallow our pride and appeal to our readers for immediate
Today, Wednesday, September 3, there are exactly 775 sub-
seribers on the Watchman list who are paid up no further than
September 1, last. While some of them are in arrears only a
few days many are delinquent one or more years.
If each one of these 775 were to send us only $1.50 we
would have $1162.50 as a working capital to carry on business.
It would save us from the mental strain of worrying each week
as to where we are going to scrape up the money to pay the
hands on Saturday.
And really we believe that preoccupation
is sapping our ability to produce an interesting paper.
We know that probably many of our readers are having
just as hard a time as we are but $1.50 is such a small sum to
ask from each one of them, and so much in the aggregate to
us, that probably none would be inconvenienced by remitting it
in any way comparable with our inconvenience in trying to
carry on without it.
May we ask these 775 readers to consider the matter. Each
one can discover whether we are appealing to them in particu-
lar by looking at the label on this paper.
If the date is Sept.
1-31 or prior thereto then it is you to whom this is addressed.
We do not want those who are already paid in advance to
send more. That would only make matters worse, for already
we are in their debt and can see no way of getting out of it
without help from the 775 who are in our debt.
If you owe for several years and find it inconvenient to
send the entire amount remit only $1.50 now and follow later
with the balance. We could get through very nicely if each
one of the 775 were to send us that amount.
The Watchman has always had great confidence in the re-
sponsiveness of its readers. It believes that it would not be in
its present plight if they fully realized that the little bit they
owe, added to the little bits that hundreds of others owe, totals
important money.
Advertising income is at a low ebb.
That adds further to
the embarrassment for, unlike other business endeavors, a
newspaper cannot shut down.
In fact when
advertising is low
there is more space to be filled with news and, in consequence,
more costly composition to be paid for.
We have made this candid statement only because condi-
tions over which we have no control have forced us to it.
It is not a pleasant subject, nor will it be interesting to
those of our readers who are paid in advance.
we may not have to refer to it again.
We hope that
That hope is founded
on the fact that we have always regarded our readers as the
Watchman’s family and never have we appealed to them with-
out a response that has assured us that they regard themselves
