Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME Linotype operator throughout his life. In the mid 1920's the Clipper bought a new Model 8 Linotype for the then-unheard-of price of $4,000. The machine is still turning out type today, and is operated by TTS. Stahle did not marry until he was 37 years old. Things just hadn't worked out for him.
