H. 13th Process Color Production Coming Up for The Star O n Jan, 28, 1967, Hope Star reproduced a process color photograph- "Hog Killing Time in Arkansas"-* one of the relatively few American newspft* pers handling four«color print* Ing. In all of 196? we ran 12 full* color productions, climaxed Nov. 24 by a double feature, the Buf< falo River on the front page and a layout of six pictures on the back page featuring last October's War Eagle Handcraft Pair- the first time that two full* color pages were published in one edition by any Arkansas newspaper. We are now readying our 13lh Color Show production, expecting to make publication this week or next. The subject is six Kodachrome 35mm. shots of the Jumping porpoises at Marineland, Fla., made fay the editor about 10 years ago. The pictures will appear in a six-column layout. Some of The Star's color work has been excellent, and, like all experimental work, there have been some disappointments. In process color printing there is an enormous gap between the original photograph and the published reproduction. Naturally you pick only the very best photographs for a process as tedious and costly as process color printing—but between the original and the published result you may be ambushed by a hundred technical problems. I will say that our readers agree The Star's color work is superior to what you see In the .metropolitan papers coming out of Memphis and Dallas. But there is an explanation: With an 8-page dailv we have a tremendous advantage. We can afford to throw away 8-page papers until we arrive at a good print— t?tit the •'cost wouklbe astronomical .in the"! .case of metropolitan papers running 36 or i 48 pages. So they release editions to their subscribers "as is" '—good, bad, or indifferent. But every newspaper has trouble with process color. We had trouble with our last two productions— "Autumn in Arkansas" Oct. 18, and the two-page "Buffalo-War Eagle" feature Nov. 24. Our color inks behaved strangely on the press, refusing to separate properly, We called in William E. Macurda of Tulsa and Dallas, Eastman Kodak Go's color "troubleshooter." Bill reported that our separation negatives from the Berkey color separator were perfect. This pinned the trouble on the press. It had to be one of two things: Either we needed to install humidity controls in the pressroom, or something was wrong with our process color inks, Since we hadn't needed humidity controls for good production in the past it seemed reasonable to suspect the inks. And there was our trouble, we now believe— once you open a tin of process color ink it begins to deteriorate, The change is scarcely noticeable at first-- until, all of a sudden, its potential is gone, Therefore we are starting our new run, this week or next, with a brand new shipment of color inks, We in the United States like to think we lead the world in all techniques, But the fact is I have just seen two daily papers from Mexico featuring process color printing that is superior to anything among U. S, dailies. They are the Mexico City Heraldo and the Mexico City EJ Sol, both being all-day papers printed by offset. Both run process color every edition. Both use U, S.,built presses and other equipment-" put the operators are expert Mex. |can craftsmen. Mexico City's El So} is one of a. commonly-owned group of pipers. The group's production manager is Rubin Ptas cje & Garza of El Sol de Tampico a.t Tampico, Mexico. He rnyst be an authentic genius. I got this information froipG^T ford Morse of Pallas, Southwest ern manager of Hydrometals, fee., one of our suppliers of plates for the press. Mr. Morse knows the man, having visited hjm in Tampico.

This fill buster move appears doomed, supporters of the legislation hoped for a close enough vote to keep It alive. Johnson, In a letter to the bill's floor manager, Sen, Philip A. Hart, D-Mich., said, "The Issue is whether we will continue to move toward equality as a fact, as well as an Ideal, In America." Earlier, however, Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dlrksen— called the "key man" In the cloture bid by his Democratic counterpart—served notice he would vote against choking off the debate. Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said that without Dirksen's support, the cloture move had no chance of getting the necessary two- thirds majority, Mansfield said that after the vote there was a good possibility a motion would be made to table and thus kill a pending open-housing amendment.

Or that Sunday's assaults on the Tan Son Nhut air base and other areas were good mrtll« cine. Or, carried to absurdity, that the South Vietnam army should attack Its own cities and thereby guarantee national unity. Of course, presidential adviser Walt W. Rostow didn't mean to imply any of these things but his latest assessment of the Viet Cong raids on the cities Illustrates how nurd the administration Is trying to put the best face possible on some difficult circumstances In the war zone. Rostow, telling newsmen of the briefing he gave to for mo r President Dwlghl D. Elsenhow- er in California, said of the recent attacks: "We're in the middle of a bat- tie that Is unresolved but from their own documents they failed to achieve their objectives and may have left the South Vietnamese army and government institutions stronger than before the attacks." Rostow suld the enemy actions have driven the South Vietnamese populace "closer to a sense of nationhood than over before." Ellsworth Bunker, U.S. ambassador to Saigon, said much the same thing as Rostow In a television appearance Sunday. Bunker said the South Vietnamese army gained confidence in the Jan. 29 fighting. "I think the people have gained confidence In them," Banker d&taipfed, "There is an Indication, I "Think," that the government has probably a wider support today than It had before the Tet (lunar new year) offensive." Officials in the Pentagon acknowledge that If the Tet attacks proved anything, It is that the Viet Cong still has the capability to launch damaging attacks on certain cities and installations at the time of their choosing. These officials also say, however, the enemy loses In two ways in these operations; — He makes a momentary impact which has propaganda value but no lasting military worth. — He exposes himself to severe casualty losses while at the same time sparing allied forces the time and risk of seeking him out In search-arrl-destroy opera- tlons. This view, of course, carries the implication that more severe fighting of the Tet magnitude would hasten an end to the war, and sonic military officials Indeed believe that.
