PAGE EIGHT ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 19«3 (John Focht, Telegraph News Editor and Leroy Fessler, Ass't Composing Room Foreman, at work on new make-up ot Editorial Page) We've Made Some Alterations. Perhaps you've already noticed them in tonight's paper. They're not the kind that are usually made with carpenter's tools and elbow grease, but alterations in our make-up that pose a problem unique to newspapers. You see, there are only 4,743 inflexible inches of space in the average edition of the Telegraph and making-up the paper means apportioning space and positioning countless items that go into it. Things like wire news, local news, pictures, features, comics, advertising and etc. Starting today, we have changed the make-up of the Editorial page, the Family page and the Comic page to accommodate additions and changes in content aimed at bettering the product from the reader's viewpoint—to make information more complete and readable. The Telegraph's constant aim is to bring to its readers the best newspaper possible. A host of changes have been made and others are in the works. We hope you like our latest.
