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.
