Our advertisers have done their part, and now it is up to us to^ do ours. Will we succeed?—Are we will ing to?—It all depends. If we will get out and boost the merchants Avhose names are printed in our pa per, we will surely be successful, but if we just let things slide along, and forget those that aid us, we will fail. What we should do might best be ex pressed as the Roanoke college paper, the BRACKETY-ACK, so appro priately put it. That is, “Play bail with our advertisers,” for they have certainly played ball with us. Through the cooperation of our loyal merchants, it has been possible to publish HIGH LIFE without charging the students a fee; but, of course, if we neglect our benefac tors, they cannot be expected to con tinue their help, and then we would have to pay a subscription fee. Thereforei, we should not only pat ronize our advertisers ourselves, but we should urge our families and friends to do so, too.
