The. News-Review and Klamath Falls Herald and News,
affiliated in the Southern Oregon Publishing; Co., make these
two newspapers the FIRST in Oregon to set up Teletype-
The Teletypesetter, a comparatively new invention, per
mits automatic operation of
about 1500 Teletypesetters are in use today. They are used
to speed type production almost doubling production over
the manually operated line-caster and also to permit setting
identical type at several stations simultaneously from one
central station, when connected by telegraph wire.
Time and Life Magazines, for instance, are edited in New
York but, through use of Teletypesetters at Philadelphia,
Chicago and Los Angeles, set identical type simultaneously
at each of the three publication points.
The Teletypesetter consists of three major pieces of equip
ment, a perforator, transmitter and keyboard.
The perforator has a standard typewriter keyboard to
gether with auxiliary keys. It operates in much the same
manner as an electric typewriter, but, instead of printing
characters on a piece of paper, punches holes in a record
As the tape comes from the perforator it is fed into the
transmitter. Combinations of holes in the tape create elec
Each impulse from the transmitter is transferred into
mechanical action on the keyboard which is attached to the
line-casting machine. Each coded impulse from the trans
mitter "punches" a key on the keyboard in exactly the same
manner as would be done in manual operation and causes
the line-caster to set type in the normal manner.
The Teletypesetter opens the way for many interesting
developments in the mechanics of publishing and printing.
There has been established, for instance, the Southwest
Arkansas Teletypesetter Circuit, with headquarters at Hope,
Arkansas. An eight-hour daily wire report is edited at Hope
and is set in type simultaneously by five neighboring news
papers. Several such circuits now are operating in the East
A number of installations have been made for weekly
newspapers where the mechanical problem differs consider
ably from that of daily newspapers. Weeklies can train
girls to operate perforators and utilize only one Linotype
operator to service two or three line-casters.
The News-Review and Herald and News are installing
these machines in an effort to produce more type in a given
number of hours. It is expected that a large amount of
the material can be put through the automatic operation,
particularly material which normally slows down the manual
operation. Thus the "slow copy" can be punched out on the
perforator and fed into the transmitter which then will
operate the Linotype at top speed.. This can be done at
such times as will not take the line-caster out of production
when needed for "hot" copy. . ,
The Teletypesetter is expected to be a great timesaver in
handling legals, classified ads, and time copy, thus aiding in
meeting early deadlines.
News-Review Linotype operators have even suggested that
the editor punch out his own column material on the Tele
typesetter so they won't have to read it. But we'll be dog
goned if we will! So long as we refuse, we're sure of at least
two readers the operator and proofreader.
Russia Put On Defensive In
Struggle For Europe, Claim
Of State Secretary Acheson
WASHINGTON, June 27.-UP)

Russia has been definitely put

said, is that It demonstrates the

the Western Powers In what he
called the struggle for the soul

Acheson declared that Commu

freedom which violates "the de
cencies of civilization."
The Secretary charged that re
strictions imposed by ine Lorn
munist regime are "an attempt
to subject religious organizations
to the rule of an intolerant police
state. The campaign, ne said,
follows the pattern of those al
ready carried out in Hungary,
Bulgaria and other Eastern Euro
pean Communist states.

Acheson previously reempha
sized Thursday this time to the
House the "utmost importance"
of approving the North Atlantic
Pact and European arms program

U. S. Leans To Finance Rural Phone Lines Planned
WASHINGTON, June 28. (A
A bill to bring more telephones
to the farms may get through
the House this week with the
help of a compromise move.
The rural telephone bill is next
on the worksheet after the House
gets through the housing scrap.
A fight has been building up
over the phone measure too, par

money for expanding country
phone service at 2 per cent inter

Now the word is getting around
from the Democratic leadership
that it might be a good idea to
raise the rate in the bill to 21
or 3 per cent. And the author,

cated he is willing to go along on
21 per cent.
