Description THE OFFSET REVOLUTION The revolution is long over today. All of Utah Press Association's members produce offset publications and echo Ash-by's parting remark: "We certainly wouldn't want to go back to hot type now." But an interesting aftermath is that the coveted lapel button awarded past presidents of Utah Press Association is a miniature of a piece of equipment few of today's publishers even recognize. It's a make-up rule, used in hot metal days to scrape burrs from lead slugs and to fit type into chases. And now and then pressed into service as a pseudo spoon for removing food from a can when deadline pressure kept printers from going out for lunch. Those who rather nostalgically remember make-up rules are becoming few in number. And the past president's lapel pin which is designed on the same plan, is referred to as a "hump" by some younger publishers who remember their Dad used to use them. They wouldn't have the faintest idea how they were utilized in makeup, but they're a step ahead of the even younger news people who haven't a clue about the origin of the "hump." Or what newspapering was like in the days of hot metal. 241
