Title Page416
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION became abbreviated to "30." (16. The use of the term "30" meant the end or "that's all" because press wires closed at the half-hour mark. The "30" was used by operators to designate that 30 minutes after the hour had been reached. (17. An average of 30 galleys of type were needed to make up the run in a particular daily newspaper. Each typesetter took a galley slug in turn from the foreman's desk. When the one who had No. 30 finished his galley, he called "Thirty." (18. Use of "30" dates back to an old slug used by journeymen in hand-set days and means "finis" or "it is done." When men worked "at the case" the copy was cut in takes and numbered. The man with the last take would place his "30" slug to indicate the article was complete. And so, in closing this chapter . . . take your choice of reasons why -30- has been imprinted here. 416
