AN EDITORIAL A good relationship between you and your newspaper publisher cannot be assessed in terms of dollars. If he likes you, and respects you... and you don't try to push him too far, het1l bend over backwards to give you what you want. If however he just has no reason to like you, and has no interest in your problems ,.. he can be a brick wall. Some time ago the C.D.N.P.A. (Hope you know what the initials stand for ...)' sent a bulletin to all their members suggesting that they re-run an editorial which appeared in the Winnipeg Tribune, having to do with Movies and T.V. Some papers picked it up ... others ignored it.
