Savos Time, Money IBM Computer System Sets Type Automatically NEW YORK (AP) — Inlerna lional Business Machines Corp. has announced development of a computer system capable of fully automatic type composition. The firm said that the com puter in one hour can produce enough perforated tape to set as many as 12,000 11-pica lines of «• point type, hyphenated and justified. A standard newspaper column is 11 picas wide. Systems Ordered The company said the New York Daily News, the Washington Evening Slar and the Soulh Bend, Ind., Tribune already have ordered (he . computerized typesetting systems. The process uses an IBM 1020 data processing system with what Ihe firm calls a new 'on-line al- loting capabilily and a set of IBM 1620 lype-composition programs. These are instructions which tell the computer how io do Ihe type, composition job. The process is said to eliminate manual intervention from time a punched paper tape is created to Ihc time hot type is poured by an automatic linccasling machine. IBM said it also had sold computerized typesetting systems to the Colonial Press, Inc., of Clinton, Mass., a book manufacturer. Electrical Impulses The 1620 with alloiing capabil- ily can accept copy in the form of electrical impulses from as many as 20 paper-tape punches. It feeds the output through electrical connections lo as ninny as 20 paper-tape readers attached electrically to 20 automatic line- casting machines. R. E. Clement, industrial marketing manager for IBM's data Jrocessing division, said the sys- :em can be used without significant modification wherever an lulomalic linccasling machine is used lo set type for a brochure, ]ook, magazine or newspaper. To use the IBM type-composi- ion program, edited copy is first lunched into pa|>er lape by a lypist. The tape is Ihen fed into Ihe 1620, which stores tlie copy in its magnetic core memory. Justifies Tape Next, the computer adds spacing to fill out the lines evenly, hyphenates where necessary, and produced a finished, fully jasti- tied tape. The tape, in lurn, is fed inlo an automatic linecasting machine which sets the type. Clements said computerized typeselling will make possible substantial savings in time and money in the composition of news copy. It also makes it possible lo get a greater amount of late breaking news in a newspaper because of Hie increased speed of type composition, he added. Additionally, more words can be placed in a given amount of newsprint because of the machines' efficiency, and this will result in a "tighter" paper, Clement said. Claims Berkshire Bus Company Owes $4,000 Back Pay The Adams man who heads the Btisdrivers Union in PittsMeld says the Berkshire Street Railway owes its former employes more than $4,000. Union President John W .Towsley claims the beleaguered bus company, whose property was Inken over by Ihe government yesterday for unpaid taxes, ewes 26 former employes one week's salary and vacation pay. Mr. Towslcy, fired by Berkshire Street recently, now works for Yel- ow Coach Lines, Inc., as do mosl of Ihe other former employes. He said Ihe men Ihrough the slate Department of Labor and In- ditslry are trying to win payment from (he firm that probably suffered its death blow yesterday. : ined $50 For Driving After Jcense Lifted Richard R. Pierce, 23, of 163 .iberty St., was fined $50 in PHts- teld District Court yesterday af- ter pleading guilty of operating a motor vehicle after his license linrt been suspended.
