we can do about it. The
Times was advised this morning
(Wednesday) that effective June
15th newsprint will advance an

advanced $10 per ton. Reasons ;iv
en is the difference in the ftoIlir
values of Canadian and American
money. , Most of the newsprint
used in tne united mam comes
from Canada. There are a few
mills in this country tart they are
supplying daily newspapers. Prior
to World War U a iarge per cent
of the newsprint used by the
American weeklies came from Eu
rope. That source of supply is gone.
Reports nave Been Botng tne
rounds for some time that unless
newsprint prices stop advancing
many small dallies and weekly pa
pers in this country, will have to
cease operation. The Times doesn't
fear for itself at present or in the
future because we have found our
readers do aot-omplain much
