No More Short Pages The newsprint (paper) proWcm is still a difficult one for every surplus paper over its quota, In the form of short rolls, has been nrintinc a "short page" several times a week. Today and every Saturday henceforth until the short paftcs arc used up, The Republican-Herald is publishing a seven-column paper instead of the conventional eight-column size. It is believed that the seven-column size, although smaller man ordinary, would be more convenient for readers than the short paftcs. Thus a seven-column paper every Saturday will eliminate the neces- sity of using the short pages three and four days week. Hope you like it and will bear with us until the paper situation improves. Newsprint manufacturers as yet have given no indication this will be.
