(AP) - The oodland Daily News has a girl elegraph editor who graduated rom jane-of-all-trades into this pecialized newspaper job. And the pressure of this seme- mes hectic job of editoring the ews wire and writing the head- ines seems to be right down Ncl- e Everett's alley. The use of the term, alley, is eliberate, because Nellie puts le same effort and enthusiasm nto her work on the wire desk s she does in her weekly stint t the bowling alley. (Her "av- rage" at the newspaper is far >etter than the 128 she sports in wwling.) The fact that Nellie is a bit unorthodox in some of the news- japer terminology she uses stems rom the fact she has had no formal journalism school training, ut she has unusually good rap- jort with the likes and dislikes >f her community of readers. Probably no other wire editor ises the letters "WN" (where iceded) to slug copy which can un any where on the inside pages. Nor would most wire editors use the term, "polka dot stuff," o describe the punched tape that reproduced in Goodland from he Associated Press sending equipment in Kansas City. Yet, he visitors to whom she de- icribed the operation probably still remember the function of that "polka dot tape" far better han if she had explained that a reperforator programmed the tape by wire from Kansas City so it could be interpreted into type by the typesetting machine.

She learned to handle classified ads, answered the phone, waited on the counter, mailed out papers and did other jobs that are assigned to beginners. Later came the job of proofreading, which she learned from a study of an AP style book and through which she still gives the typesetters fits when they divide word wrong. The management soon had Miss Everett learning to operate the perforator which is used to punch local copy for the typesetting machines, One of the next steps was to have her substitute for the society editor. "Goofing off" on Saturday night got Nellie started toward the headline writing job. She spent her idle time writing heads as she thought it should be done. Apparently her ideas were okay, because from then on she helped write heads on occasions when the office was short-handed. When the present owners, the McCants Publishing took over in June. Company, 1961, Miss Everett was operating a perforator and reading proof, along with other duties. "It was when I returned from vacation in October of 1961 that I wished I had stayed in Wyoming deer hunting," she says. "The boss said he wanted me to 117 handling the wire and I just about flipped." After a few months to get acquainted with the work, she was put in full charge of the wire and dummying the paper. A graduate of Sherman Community High School in Goodland, Miss Everett has supplemented that education with careful study of newspapers and much reading. Along with this, she finds time for hobbies such as cake baking and decorating, photography, bowling and deer hunting with her dad. BLUE GRASS SOD FOB SALE FREE ESTIMATES Ph.
