May it always be a medium of helpfulness to the independent exhibitors and to all others engaged in the motion picture business. I also trust that it will always be used for extending the hand of good fellowship between the various branches of the industry, while adhering to its principles of protection for the independent theatre owners. An independent trade publication in this territory, like a really independent exhibitors' organization, should have a bright future. Good luck! Benjamin Golder.
