I PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEViLLB (AHK.) UJUK1KK Latest Invention Sets Type on Film By AH*« U Blakesk* (jl MI till-' rrcai Sciene* Keporier) BOSTON, Sert. 16. VP, — A new machine with an electile brain and a flashing photo heart promises lo chop down the costs of printing the newspapers, boob and maga- ajnes you read. It set* type clearly, accurately and quickly en film, without using any metal. Anyone who can type can run It, for It has a standard typewriter, keyboard. Whatever you type eomes out with perfectly- tpaced margins, arranged by the electric brain or memory. Each letter U projected onto film through a photo-electric gun, pulsing like a heart to record just what you've written. You push buttons to get whatever style of type you want, or whatever size from headline to small print at any moment. You can see your whole line of words and correct any errors before you push the button to photograph it. Leading publishers and scientists unveiled the new machine yesterday and called It the most significant advance In the are of printing in 75 years. It promises to bring hugh savings In the cost of printing, and make possible printing of more newspapers, books, magazines, and scientific journals, they said. Present linotype machines set type from molten metal, and have a top speed of about seven or eight newspaper column lines a minute. Thus machine «eU 12 I lues a minute, by photographing si. letters a second. It -o'Jld set 20 a minute, if anyone could type that fast. It saves through faster production, and can bring other savings by avoiding some stages of printing with metal type. The strips or rolls of films that come from the machine have to be reproduced on meial. This can be done by making offset plates, or photo-engravings for regular printing methods. And scientists predicted ways will be found to make up new kinds of photo-engravings cheaply and in perhaps a Jew minutes tlmt The mnchine Is (he result of cooperative work of two French Inventors, Rene A. Hlgomiet and Louis Moyroud, the Lithomat Corporation of Cambridge, and Dr. Vaiuievnr Bush, president of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and his associates. As yet the photo-composing machine has no official name. One working model has been made. The finished mae'iines will look like a big stenographer desk. They may be ready in 18 months. Costs are not yet known. Dr. Bush declared many present methods of printing are obsolete, and that changes v;l]l come fast In this field. Movable type may be on the way on', he said, and "someday we may do printing without It's even possible, Dr. Buah said, that someday news stories may be sent out over wire* to newspapers and received In type in their offices In the style and size of type that eich individual on* wants. $25 REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE RETURN OF THIS Missing Car 1941 CHEVROLET 2-DOOR, dark blue color with top rusted red, Arkansas license No. 166-561.

MISSOURI PACIFIC RAILROAD STRIKE? Owr twenty years ago, the Congress of the United States passed the Railway Labor Act R was hailed by union leaders as a model for the settlement of labor disputes. m««» UABKBA of the Brotherhood of ± Locomotive Engineers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Engineinen, Order of Railway Conductors, and the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen on I he Missouri Pacific Railroad have refused to avail themselves of the peaceful mean* provided by this Act for settling their disputes. They insist that they be the sole umpire of their own disputes over the meaning of contract*. There is A'o i\eed for Strikes With all of the available methods for the ^interpretation <rf contracts, there is no •need for a strike or even a threat of a •trike. Dot the leaders of these railroad unions have ignored the ordinary procedures established by law and insist upon 'imposing their own interpretations of their contracts by means of a strike. The wheels have slopped rolling on lire .Missouri Pacific. They may stop rolling ,«» other railroads at any time. Recently *he Wabaab Railroad was forced to discontinue operation for several days under similar circumstances. , What Are These Strikes About? These strikes and strike threat* are not atxnt wage rates or hours. They result from disputes over the meaning of exist•V contract*. They cover cfcum* fora full day's pay for less than a day's work, or for payments for services performed by others who were fully paid for the work done. President Truman's Board .
