We have much to be Happy about and just As much to be grate Ful for. We Are Happy to be alive especially when we remember that when we started out As an infant newspaper on june 13, 1874, we entered a Field in which three other newspapers were competing. It was at a time when infant mortality was High especially among newspapers. Somehow we managed to survive those critical first yearn of existence and to enjoy a healthy growth in the years that followed. We have witnessed the sad death of our three competitors with sadness on our part too. Long before our govern ment became concerned about the High mortality rate in the fourth estate other newspapers were much concerned. In most instances they did what they could to help those who were distressed. Competition is of course a part of our business but for the most part it has consisted of a desire to Render the Best possible service to the area and to the readers and advertisers who make the paper possible. We Are grateful to Pur readers. We Are also grateful to our advertisers and to their customers who Are also our readers. We owe a great debt of gratitude to those who labor Here and to those who Laboured Here in the past. We Are indeed most fortunate to have so Many with us today who re member the 40th birthday of the paper and to those who were working Here at that time we offer a Golden Salute. We Are also most grateful to that Large Force of people who have been with us for More than a Quarter of a Century. They have Given us of their Talent in generous measure they have known us and helped us in Days of adversity. We Are grateful to our youngsters who bring to us each year a breath of freshness a renewal of vitality the urge for better things. By their very Faith in choosing our Industry they renew our own Faith in a business that is both fascinating and de manding. Their Bright cheerfulness and High ideals their Hope for better things in that Bright Tomor Row which younger eyes see so clearly and younger minds help to implement drive away the gloom of failures past and present and Chase away the fear of things that Are yet to come. All too often we Are prone to dramatize the failures of men forgetting for the moment at least the great achievements of our age. We grow weary of the stories of murder robbery and cruelty forgetting for the moment that these Are news Only because they Are unusual and foreign to the general behaviour of that great mass of people who go Forth each morning to perform the tasks of the world and return each evening to Home and loved ones seeking nourishment relaxation and rest so that they May better face the tasks that Are theirs on the Morrow. We Are thankful that their youth and their Faith in their world and in their fellow men make us look for that news about people and the world they inhabit which is Good news. Their laughter their ambitions their zest for life permeate the building and mix with the Ink and Lead and paper and make us More palatable to. Our readers. Above All and most humbly we Are grateful for the creator of the universe about which we write. We Are grateful for the Faith of our founder All of us who remember him that god had set Forth a course which would guide us As a business and As individuals to an estate far Supe rior to that fourth estate of which we Are All so proud.
