At a time when the Times-Herald normally could expect to have a 90-day sjpply of newsprint of various size rolls, the newspaper now has barely a l-i-day supply. Shipments which were due in February have not arrived, al- though delivery is hoped for in the near future. As a result of the shortage it has been necessary to curtail space ordi- narily given over to news, pictures and featwes. the TnnesfleraM regrets this curtailment but believes it prefer- able to more drastic measures. And while newsprint is in snort sup- ply, its price has risen more than 1140 a ton in the last months. Price increases have occnred regularly and frequently in the past two years.
