Price Increase, 1920

Budget news from the August 5, 1920 Skidmore News, page 1:

Price Will Be $2.
Beginning on September 1st, 1920, the price of the Skidmore News will be $2 per year.

We have delayed taking this action, thinking the price of paper would decrease, but instead, has advanced and if we did not have our paper contracted for with a large firm, we probably could not get it at all.

We are giving our subscribers one month’s notice in advance and if they care to renew at the old price, one year in advance of their present date, we will gladly give them this opportunity.

The price now is $1.50 per year and after Sept. 1st, it will be $2.

We are going to make the paper better, and to keep pace with the times we must advance the price.

We hope our subscribers will realize our position, and continue to read the best paper published in Skidmore.
