Description UTAH'S SIX SURVIVING DAILIES before his call to serve in the Council of the Twelve in 1963. While continuing changes have marked production of the paper, most of the technological advancements have taken place during the past 20 or 30 years. Before the newspaper's editorial and printing functions were combined at one location, reporters, editors and photographers and printers worked at two separate sites. When the Deseret News was located at its former home at 33 Richards Street, typewritten news stories and pictures were lowered in a basket from editorial offices to couriers below. They then walked or drove the stories to Regent Street, where copy editors made corrections in pencil, and Linotype operators set the stories in hot type. Headlines were written on half sheets of paper and glued to the top of the stories. Compositors assembled many of the larger headlines by hand. Stories, photographs and advertisements were all placed in a form, from which a stereotype mold was made and a heavy metal printing plate cast and placed on the press. Typewriters and editing pens were still used after the move to 100 South in 1968, and Linotype machines and hot-lead printing plates were replaced by photocomposition in 1972. Electronic scanners, or optical character readers, read images typed on high quality paper. The scanner produced an encoded paper tape that was fed into an electronic typesetting machine. Video display terminals, an Atex computer system, personal computers and pagination and other equipment also joined the technological lineup. With the Atex system, all stories are typed and edited at video display terminals and are electronically transmitted from the reporter's screen to the editor's by the simple touch of a button. Wire stories from the Associated Press and a variety of other sources, such as the New York Times Syndicate, United Press International, Reuters, the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post syndicates, and other news services, are read on terminals by news editors.
