They Don't Write 'Em Like That Anymore

From ASTOUNDING STORIES OF SUPER-SCIENCE, (first issue of first volume, 1930), published by W.M. Clayton comes this disclaimer:
"On Sale the First Thursday of Each Month
The Clayton Standard on a Magazine Guarantees:
That the stories therein are clean, interesting, vivid; by leading writers of the day and purchased under conditions approved by the Authors' League of America;
That such magazines are manufactured in Union shops by American workmen;
That each newsdealer and agent is insured a fair profit;
That an intelligent censorship guards their advertising pages."

It's been a long way down.
