Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION During our first year at Roosevelt we had one operator quit and another often inebriated to the point where he couldn't see the keyboard. When he was sober, he was one of the best in the state, but that wasn't often. I found myself setting type during the daytime then returning at night to complete a myriad of tasks that fall the lot of an editor-publisher. "We advertised for operators, but found no takers," Ashby continued. "There was simply no one training for this occupation because the handwriting was on the wall. It was a fading industry. After several months of doubling up assignments, we made the switch on November 2, 1966." Ingenious minds had been at work with phototype. While early efforts were even slower than hot metal, there was light at the end of the tunnel. Inter type had conceded this was the way of the future when it adapted the basic elements of its hot lead machines to instead produce photographic reproductions with its Fotosetter. Linotype labelled its similar product the LinoFilm. And to its straight matter composition machine, Linotype joined the Davidson Corporation in producing a Hi! A TYPICAL COMPUGRAPHIC installation was made at the Price Sun-Advocate in 1971. Dan Stockburger, at left, was the plant superintendent and Robert Finney, center, the publisher. The Comp 4961 has their attention. 232
