• u Our Daily Bread M tifukk.1** • wiSHDwn Rite of Conversion to Offset Printing Grows in Arkansas W rites a reporter friend on a big-city newspaper: "1 never cease to be amazed at tho quality of photo reproduction you offset fellows can achieve." What he writes is less a tribute to small-town photographic Skill and more an appraisal of the capabilities of the offset tide which is sweeping today's Amcri« can press. The tide is running strong here In Arkansas. I have before mo the 1968 edition of the Arkansas Press Association's Rale Directory, which arrived this morning, It lists as offset-produced.Gofthe state's 30 dallies, or 20per cent; which compares with 4 out of 30, or 13.3 per cent, a year ago. The same tide is noted among the weekly press. Arkansas now has 31 offsetters out of a total of 128 weekly or semi-weekly papers, or 24.4 per cent; the figures a year ago were 25 out of 130, or 19.2 per cent. •Offset is a relatively ancient; art, derived from lithography,'a composite from the Greek 1 "lithos" or stone, 'meariin'g literally, picture on;stbne; s Apic- ture or bit of writing tf as'drawn on stone, water 1 w^s sprayed on the portions to be' shown in white, and since oil and water won't mix (ink is an oil) .when the ink was' applied only the dark portions accepted it; "you,had contrast — and a picture T ."' The offset proces's had been known for many years, but adapting it to .high-speed newspaper production required the development of a rotary offset printing press. E ,This was .invented at Grand Pairie, Texas, in the early 1950s — and it started today's' newspaper revolution. First daily paper in Arkansas to convert' to offset was the Rogers Daily News. Second was the Springdale Dally News,,; and the" El t>o^o,"News*& 'Tlmos was third. H6pe Star was "the fourth, Dec. 29, 1965. Last year saw two more added to the list,, making a total of six, the Conway Log Cabin Democrat and the, Searcy Daily Citizen. The offset tide has run strongest among the small and middle-class papers, for an obvious reason: Small-city news- papering is more or less a do-it- yourself business. Usually the person who takes a picture sees it all the way through to the press. Disgusted with haphazard results he looks for an Improved system — and turns to offset. The results speak for themselves. Today's Star represents a fortune spent In new equipment —an Installation and testing job that required two years, ending only last October. The same story Is continuing throughout America —and nowhere faster or with better results than right here in Arkansas. LBJ Concedes Budget Cuts in School Aid WASHINGTON (AP) dent Johnson, conceding that his budget will dedicate cutbacks in some federal education programs, asked Congress today nevertheless to authorize some new efforts, including a "Stay to School" program, In a special message, Johnson sa|d?
