appear to be fully realised by the public gener ally all too frequently the value of the work which the newspaper renders is overlooked it is the mouthpiece of the community it defends the rights of the people it serves it endeavours to offer constructive criticism and to make people more happy and more prosperous what the newspaper requires ts an intelligent realization by the public that it is providing ser vices ust as vital as those rendered by the doctor or the merchant the newspaper owes a duty to the commun ity which it faithfully tries to perform the com munity on its part owes a duty to the newspaper ii must be remembered that advertising is the sole means of sustenance which a newspaper hat every day of the year demands are made upon the newspaper for free space when a pub lic movement is launched or a campaign inaug urated the newspaper is expected to snake a cash contribution and also to provide free space the newspaper has to employ help pay wages meet heavy expense for overhead costs meet the cost of postage and equipment ust as any other commercial enterprise enormous sums must also be spent for news services and telephone bills and yet the belief persists that it should give away the whole thing that it has to selladvertising rig bosj not recent mails have brought us many very fine annual reports from companies like the ford motor co imperial oil and several of the brewing organizations big business firms apparently find this yearly edition quite an asset m furthering their relations with their shareholders and the public in general these booklets give complete statements of the years activities both financially and with their public and employee relations from one of the letters that accompany each report we find that the organization looks on it as a report to their employees the community and the people of canada from an industrial organization which plays a vital role in the national economy this week we received the annual report of one of the most interesting and active organiza tions with which we have been associated our town the town of acton its story is one of pro- gtess end thought its reading is indeed interest ing above ell it is an organization that pla an exfrewvely vhaifole in canadas economic sys tem it it rwttrange that we look on acton at big business it is quite in keeping with the part it plays last year the taxes that were spent in maintaining and improving the buiinett concern or town were partly contributed by ut at a shareholder in this town neither does it seem strange that we are interested in wf town in what it does and how it spends the shareholders money the figures in that report cannot lie and with comparisons and speculation we can find wheth er our town is weighted with excess financial burdens or long lilts of tax arrears every other taxpayer has n interest in lite community too and each sharehoder can udge the safely of his investment from the annual report that every town should provide preejfwtt in production we were rather intrigued the other day as we read a booklet describing the growth of one of the big automobile manufacturer tracing the company from 1904 when a drill pres was the only piece of equipment the story of this indu try told that that year in thee small quarters 17 men put on the road 117 automobile of 1 04 vintage roughly that work out to alout 7 carl xr man employed taking the latest year for this firm we find thit with 40 acre of factory buildings the fin rt of equipment and automata riiv hutrs there were 14 i7 fierson employed by ibis company and during that year ii 130 vehicle were put on the road which working on the same basis as in 1904 gives the tujenlous increase of np proximately 1 vehicle more per man employed we sometime wonder about all our efficiency and modern mechanization and speed of geinnnj thing done we are quite free to admit of course that the car of 1949 is a much different vehicle than the brass trimmed chariot of 1904 and of course the price is about five time greater the man production unit was however the item that struck as as rather odd maybe- we made a mistake in our arithmetic biq cities are tke parasites the debt that big cities owe smaller com muni ties and farm areas was acknowledged editorially this week by the financial post discussing a toronto aldermans suggestion that the income of city people who earn their living in town and live beyond its limits should be taxed by the city the post say thi what the toronto alderman failed to con ider is the essentially parasitic nature of any large city in relation to the outlying country which supports it quite apart from the direct and obvious profit derived from business and industry operating in the city on the strength of sales to customers many miles away there is the neverending drain of men and women to the city where they produce for the city the profit from education obtained at the expense of home town communities editorial notes
