THE PILOT. Southern Pines and Aberdeen. North Carolina
You Can Help
Us Help You
These words appear at the masthead of each issue of The Pilot:
Paper Devoted to the Upbuilding of the Sandhill
Territory of North Carolina.”
The Pilot esteems it a privilege to serve the community—by bringing to its readers each week the in
teresting happenings of State, County and Community —by aiding every worthy cause—by keeping its pub
lic informed on questions of local interest—by giving valuable publicity to movements and institutions work
ing for the betterment of the section.
In the course of rendering this service during the past six months The Pilot has devoted approximately
the following space in its news columns—much of it front page space (which is not for sale at any price)—
without thought of remuneration:
The various Relief organizations
of the county and their pro
jects received upwards of 150
Libraries in the county upwards
of 80 inches.
Amateur Theatricals around 200
Public Occasions—such as the
Spring Blossom Festival and
the Fourth of July celebration
around 400 inches.
Real Estate and like publicity fav
orable to the section, 150 in
The Moore County Hosptial, more
than 300 column inches.
The Public Schools and their ac
tivities more than 150 inches.
Various Civic organizations—such
as the Civic Club, the Bird
Club, the Chamber of Com
merce, Women’s Clubs, etc.,
were given in excess of 250 in
ches to keep their activities
before the public.
General Winter Sports events
were given advance publicity
to the extent of more than 200
This we feel is a good record for service, and it has
been rendered cheerfully and without thought of re
ward other than the satisfaction derived from seeing
the worthwhile enterprises of these various organiza
tions succeed and the Sandhill section come into its own.
All The Pilot Asks is a Square Deal
It is dependent upon three sources of revenue:
First—The money received from subscriptions.
Second—The money collected from advertisers.
Third—The profits from job printing.
First, Please pay your subscriptions promptly, and,
if convenient, see that your neighbor has a chance to
subscribe. He’ll like the paper, too.
Second, Patronize those firms which advertise in
The Pilot, and if you have anything to sell to the pub
lic advertise in The Pilot.
Third, Let us do your printing. Remember that
your local paper renders the section a service far in ex
cess of the remuneration it receives. It is but fair to ask
that you bear this in mind when you are tempted to give
your printing order to an out-of-town salesman.
The Pilot pays Code wages, or more (and they are spent in the Sand
hills), and charges prices in accordance with the “Price Determination
Schedule of the Graphic Arts Code.” The quality of our work will stand
up under comparison with that turned out'by any first class small shop,
and is entirely out of the class of the cut rate stuff offered by the so-call
ed specialty houses.
LET’S WORK TOGETHER!
