PHILLIPS Northwestern Bell UNIVERSITY OF COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM • MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA 55485 April 9, 1965 Mr. Russ Waller Editor and Publisher Algona Upper Des Moines Algona, Iowa . Dear Russ: Congratulations from all of us here on the formation of Midwest Printing and Lithographing, and on the installation of the new web offset press. Our staff experts certainly agree with the comment'in the story that "centralized printing,,,is quicker, more economical, and produces a far better product." It will have a big impact on the community press of the future, and it is typical of your progressive outlook that you are moving ahead decisively in this field. > The color in,your March 30 issue is attractive and most effectively used. This highlighting of an ad headline here* an illustration there, or price figures somewhere else really gives the color impact. So many publishers are satisfied just to print large blocks of tht ad in color, or highlight the same element, such as ad headlines, all the way through, Sincerely, '."• Robert L'.
