BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY. OCTOBER 13, 1949 EIGHTEEN PAGES 8INOLB COPIES OTB A machine, revolutionary to photo engraving processes—the process of making a plate suitable for printing from a photograph—this week waa installed In'the Courier News. Produced by the Palrchlld Cam- gravings for the first time In its 28- Entlrely different from old photo engraving systems, the* Fairchild engraver makes.' It possible .for the Courier News staff to bring Its readers today's pictures today. Tills face was dramatically illustrated on Tuesday of this week when a photograph made at 12:45 p.m. was seen on the front page when the first copies of the edition began to roll off the presses at around 2 p.m. Only part of this time was used In the actual making of the engraving, photographic developing and enlarging consuming the remainder of the period., : The machine itself is neither large nor complicated to operate. It occupies only n square feet^bf floor space and factory ; representatives instructed members of the staff in its operation hi two days of rather intensive training. Prime factors of the engraver are twin cylinder's. Around one, the photograph is secured; around the other, a clear plastic plate. A scanning eye begins surveying the photograph in-minute detail when the machine is set in operation and the cylinders begin revolving at the same rate of speed What this photo-electric "eye* sees. Is transferred by electrical impulses to a heated stylus which rides ori the clinder containing the plastic plate. These impulses cause the stylus to hit the plate in light strokes at a speed which is hard for the human eye to detect. ' Thus does the stylus cut what the eye sees in the photograph arid at the end of the operation, a plate is ready for printing. Installation of the engraver Is important to the paper and its readers for a number of resons' } It gives the paper,some pride in scoring a "first." The Fairchild engraver although •" currently being used in more than 150'newspapers has never been used before in this part of the country. It is absolutely the-very latest development In the photo engraving field. 5 More important, it means wider use of pictures in each-edition -aiid added' neas value with each picture, ' /•• j 1 .

After weeks of debate, a coalition of Senate Democrats and Re- Publicans yesterday pushed through a voice vote the farm support bill sponsored D y Senator Anderson (D-NM), former secretary of agrlflture. They substituted It for the one year continuance of the wartime- level price supports voted by the House in micl-Juty. Leaders of the coalition . said they are confident the House will accept the Senate version eventually. Farm-mlruled House members talked equally optimistically about forcing Senators to tnke their one- year extension of existing price props at least for 1950—a year when ill 435 House members and more than one-third of the Senators must face the-farmers and other voters. Doth the Senate and House bills peg their proposed price supports to percentages of parity. Parity s a price for a farm product deemed to be fair to the tarmer In relation to the cost of things he has to buy. However, the Senate bill would revise the parity. formula io talc* Into account the cost of hired hands. — •—"-•<» H"""* 1 ^* w sem the dispute to a conference com- mfttce—sometimes called the third chamber of Congress—to try to ad- Just.dlfferenc-- _^ •* — rr~"~ (•• ••-•* oj avail, They include Anderson, floor manager ol the Senate bill although only « freshman Senator, Majority Leader Lucas (D-ni), Senator Aiken (R-vt) who pushed a LIttle 5?*'- ifer ^*rf of the Ark somewhat similar bill through the lnsls Ph » r maceutlcal Association, last, COIlstrcss. onrt F>nAtnw pi:*,.- _ New York Cotton -..— ,.„,,, uuimm UHI biituugn vTK last.congrcss, and Senators Elien- der (D-La> and Thye (R-MInn).
