Advance had it coming in return for a heading in a similar vein the other month over an i'xpress clipping. Editors like to prod each other more or less maliciously in that fashion. It is friendly sparring which helps to break the monotony of editorial routine. What the Advance really had in mind in the Gardner comment was the contrast between his stuff and the slush usually dished out by parly press writers, either republican ov d"mocratic. This contrast was particular l_v noticeable in the last slate campaign, when Gardner's "fairly decent" stuff was compared with the i;osh-awful nonsense sent out by the democratic headquarters. Neighboring Editors on the Advance's New Press Country editors keep a friendly eye on each other, particularly if they are personally acquainted, at least they do in Iowa, so if has not been surprising lo find some comment in the "exchanges" about the Advance's new Duplex press. Thus. Editor Deemor Lee, of the Eslher- villo Daily News, said: Congratulations to the Kossuth County Advance in the installation of a web press, similar in operation to the equipment on which this newspaper is printed. .The Advance's press has many limes the speed and ci-pacily of the two-revolution flat-bed press v. hich it replaced and is ideal equipment for small dailies and large weeklies. The Daily N( ws press, of the same general type, has ''••uble the speed necessary for ordinary weekly publications. We can say that the Advance' will get great satisfaction in the i:, e of its new press. And Ward Barnes, in his Eagle. Grovb Eagle, had the following reminiscent mention of the old press: Congratulations lo the Algona Advance and the Dewels, W. C. and Duane. Manpower shortage has compelled them to put in a faster newspaper press. The war made such inroads on the Advance's help that lo carry on. an expensive new press was Ihe only solution. Formerly there were from five to six in the Advance's work, room, but it is down to two, with no relief in sight, and Du-. :.':-:(• has been doing Ihe press-feeding in addition to his other duties. Incidentally the big press, folder, and motor now being replaced with the faster machine were the old Eagle Grove Times ' 'eaiprnent which Iho Eagle sold to the Dbw- •:. Is some 10 years ago. The writer ,will n.ev- .'! forget the details of that transaction^Mr.!)i. we) insisted on paying cash, right on thk barrelhead. One Saturday morning a' big envelope came from Mr. Dewel containing ( hecks and certificates of deposit on various- Kossuth banks, covering the entire cost of ii:e equipment, around $1,400. And that, morning, every bank in Kossulh •omuy closed! Bo we sent, them back and told Mr. Dewel to cnme and get his press, etc., anyway, and i: a period of a few months il was'oll washed out. the deal completed and the Advance continued to be, as it still is, one of Iowa's mo^t widely quoted and outstanding news- There may have been additional comment i:i ether "exchanges." In these days of help shortage, old school country editors do not have the time for leisurely scanning of olher newspapers in their class lhat they once had. In Which We Acknowledge a Classic Boner In the newspaper trade there are a few -classic 1 boners," and one or another of Ihem sooner or later trips up every publisher big or little. It. was the Advance's turn last week. In a lops.v-turvy back shop, the aftermath of the installation of the new press, and in the excitement attending the first issue printed on ii. two columns of want and for sale 'ads parked in nn obscure corner were forgollen and omitted! The Upper Des Moines kindly made room in a crowded Thursday issue for mosl of Ihe e-milied matter, and the Advance mailed 45 I'-iLers of explanation and apology to the ad- vi rlisers. it was the second time for thai "boner" in :!ie Advance's 35 years under the present management. In (hi.-: connection readers may be amused by the following somewhat appropriate clip- pirn; from an unidentified 'exchange' which has been going the rounds of newspapers throughout the country and appeared last week in the Brill News-Tribune: The cdilor does nol wanl anyone lo bring or send him any more copies of his paper in v hich they find mistakes. If, however, Ihey find a copy () f his or any olher paper enlire- !v free from errors either typographically or factually he will pay a big price for it. lie will be highly pleased also to find ••.•)>• person who never makes mistakes; a merchant who never makes one in pulling up :m order; a lawyer who never loses a case by his own errors; a doclor who never wrongly diagnoses a complainl; a banker who never makes a mistake in figures or in a loan: a posloffice employe who never throws mail into the wrong box; a housewife \\lio never forgets the sail for whatever she i.. cooking that needs it. Come on in, you paragons who never make mistakes, and we'll see if you are really human. OUR MILLION DOLLAR PRISON CAMP. iWinlersct Madisonian.] A million dollar camp for war prisoners at Algona, and another at the same estimaled cost at Clarinda. Seems like it's a pretty stiff price to pay for a high barbed wire fence and plain bul comfortable barracks. On, the other hand Uncle Sam has always been magnanimous toward prisoners of wai», and it's better to err generously. HODGEPODGE W*b«t«r—A tiew of various In- gradient*; a mixture. SITTING in front of a typewriter after a week of smnll-boyish ecstasy in watching a new press blossom in the Advance office is somehow loo much of a chore. There's no heart lo the job. It's much more fun to go back in the far east room and sit and contemplate tho new mechanical monster with the glee of a small boy inspecting the first toy train. It just isn't human to bc*other- wise. But there's a tear for the old press, shoved out the back door like a something you don't love, and left there to the mercy of the rain. That old faithful has Tor 15 years, week in and week out, clanged and clanked through the thousands of papers that you folks have read and then used to wrap up garbage or to line shelves. v In the 15 years the old press was in the Advance office it printed at least 2,340,000 copies. Each paper had to be run through the press at least twice, hence there were better than five million impressions on the cylinder. The old press isn't worn out-yet, either. It's Rot a lot of good licks in it, but those licks just do not come fast enough. For instance it printed at the rate of 1200 per hour —if the feeder didn't have to get up and down after paper, etc. The average rate of production was about 1000 per hour. To print ; the 3S50 copies of the Advance (two runs through the press) it took nearly eiglit hours. • • •; '$! '' But many times the old press was a.head- ache in other ways. For instance there!.)was ] -the time a pressman dropped a pii>cd|tof metal down into the innards of the-'pYesk, and it stopped with a howl, with stuff and' things all mixed up inside. But by main strength, awkwardness, sweat, and not a few cuss words, and tho ingenuity of Raymond Norton and his crew at the Norton Machine Works, the iron vitals were repaired, patched up, or just got around somehow, and the next week old faithful'was in there grinding away. But this is a new mechanical age. The new press gulps paper from a roll, hauls it inside in an intricate dingus, slaps print on one side,, whips it over and slaps print on the'ither,'chops the long sheet in Iwo, rams ;jtt 'Into - : a t folder, and out it comes all folded, cut, aridire'ady for .the addressing machine' 1 j To read the sales literature all a p^es'snjaAJ has to do now is come up to the office, yawn! 'widely, look the-press severely in the'eye! push a button, and go home to dinriei<>iiihiiaj the mechanical genie goes ahead .aridjdpnl the ..work'. •_ • - if J'l Howave'r, visitors cUirtnjg^pre'sstimeT Jrob are'adverse tahearing the king's Engjisj-jjjn a perverted form and a beautiful shade)of blue/are warned to stay away till the new- fangled'operational technique (golly'— just like some of the professions, bygosh) is thoroughly learned. Pal Hurlbut, erector from Shelbyville, Indiana, says such a press is a great deal like a woman—unpredictable. Sometimes they will sing along at their work and everything will be hunky-dory—then bingo — and the rolling pin swings right and left and the pressman is the goat. Mebby so — don't know yet—about either women or the press —but Pat loves those Duplex presses—and Pat has a lovely wife and a delightful daughter at home, and if the press is as good lo the Advance there could be no complaint. And those rolls that go into the press— Ihey weigh from 100Q pounds up to 1200 for Ihe 8-page size, and hardly something to wrestle around with one hand in a lackadaisical manner. The big rolls are 70 inches wide and 30 inches thick. One two-thirds-.as wide is used for the 6-pago size—a half, as wide for the four-page paper, and a > runt only one-fourth as wide for the single page Shopper, and sale bills. : ' And it has been impressed on the Advance force that the new outfit is dangerous. More than one pressman's brains were nipped out when he got his head inside while the press was going, and arms, fingers, legs, and such personal adornments have been sadly mangled by careless or thoughtless action. Well, it's sitting out back there now—all tuned up and ready to go at any time. Now it's up to the force to get the stuff to put into type to put in to forms to put on the press and start it to buzzing. And the new outfit demands a new approach lo the old job—to get something new in the manner of treatment of news—to get a new angle to the advertisements (say, by Ihe way—advertising is what it is hoped will pay that there bill, sohelpus), and maybe something good more often. So while the new press is a mechanical marvel, a help to a war-shortened staff, and all that, it is also a challenge to get out and get doing and live up to the equipment. After all it gives almost a day's more time to the fellow who had to stick in those single sheets of paper, and <*ven he in that time should be able to do something. Maybe that's what Pat meant—about the press being like a woman. Good women and good presses make you work and sweat and do a little better, and both are good for the soul, though danged aggravating at times. Anyway here's a column all written and the mind didn't have to leave that new marvel for a minute, —D. E, D.
