Newspaper Production Explained Technical processes involved in the production of a daily newspaper were described to ; Greensburg Kiwanians Tuesday night by Scott Alexander, editor of The Franklin Daily .Journal. Speaking at the annual club observance of National Newspaper Week, Alexander pointed out that a newspaper operations, of necessity, have to be departmentalized. He added that in production a high degree of cooperation is required, especially on the part of the editorial, advertising and mechanical departments. Tribute to the late 0. Clifford Elder, oldest member of the club and one of the group who established the Kiwanis Club here was paid at the opening of the program. Walter B. Lowe, program chairman, recited the long i-ecord of service of the late Mr. Elder not only to the club but to the community. The memorial service was closed with a moment of silent prayer. . Small city daily newspapers cannot print all the news of world events but they do a tremendous and difficult job in summarizing the news as presented by United Press International and other press services, Alexander declared. New Product Daily Delivery of copy from the news and advertising staffs to the mechanical department as quickly as possible requires the cooperation of all, the speaker stated. A member of tne franklin Kiwanis Club, Alexander asserted that a newspaper is unique in that it starts in the morning from scratch and in a relatively few hours produces a brand new product. Discussing current newspaper operations, the Franklin editor reviewed two distinct methods now in use, letterpress and offset. While more newspapers currently use the letterpress method, he stated that many papers are turning to offset, although this method requires constant experimentation. He showed how both operations are similar up to punching of tape but differ in procedure, thereafter. Exhibiting material used in preparation of a recent issue of The Franklin Daily Journal, one of the early offset operations in the daily newspaper field in Indiana, he sketched the essential mechanical operations. An offset press prints from a blanket, whereas a letterpress operation prints directly on a web of newsprint. In his description of a letterpress operation he told how this method can be used with either rotary or flat bed equipment. Good reproduction can be achieved with the use of either method, the speaker stated. He expressed the belief that the offset method will lend itself better to future advances in automation. Personal guests were: A. Hartwell Coons and Robert Crawley of the Rushville Republican- Telegram; Hubert G. Stuhrenberg, Don Austin and James Weir. Miss Sharon Pratt served as guest pianist.

(UPI) — On Sept. 5 and 6 United Press International carried dispatches describing an accident on one of the rides at the Nebraska State Fair. In these dispatches the ride involved was described as a "sky ride." It was in fact an aerial amusement ride and was not manufactured or installed by the Van Roll Iron Works of Berne, Switzerland, which is the owner of the trade name "Sky- ride." The United Press International regrets the error. The Van Roll Company says it is the world's largest manufacturer of aerial passenger transportation systems. One of its installations is the gondola skyride in Disneyland on which more people have been transported than on any other such ride in the world, according to a statement by Fred Picard of Sun Valley, Idaho, American sales representative of the Van Roll Co.
