A milestone in Hoosicr journalism has been. set by the Pharos- Trlbune with the installation and operation of the revolutionary Fair. childs method of making newspaper engravings—the art' of transforming photographs into engravings for newspaper printing. This remarkable engraving machine pictured above is the first one in operation in any Indiana newspaper. It Introduces a new method in making newspaper engravings by etching the plctnrcs into a plastic material instead oi the usual zinc or copper plates. Photographic prints are locked onto the cylinder at the right which is scrutinized minutely by a tiny beam from a photo-electric cell. The light energy is transformed into electrical energy and a small stylus etches every detail ot the picture onto a plastic surface which is locked on a cylinder at the left, ffhe stylus is electrically heated and actually burns the engraving into the plastic. Under this new method it is possible to take a picture, develop and print the negative and make the cut within 60 mlnntes. Under the old zinc method of making engravings approximately two hours time Is required to make the engraving in addition to the time consumed for developing' the negative and making tlic print. Pictured standing beside the Pharos-Tribune engraving machine is Tictor Jose, staff photographer and engraver. The 'Fairchllds method of making newspaper engravings has been tested by thirty selected eastern newspapers for the past year, but not until last Angnst has the machine been available in the mlddlcwest. The Pharos-Tribune ever endeavoring to give its readers n better and more complete newspaper is first in adopting tills revolutionary and successful engraving device. The machine has been in operation since August 10. Since that time more than two hundred local engraving's have appeared in the columns of the Pharos-Tribune.
