THE INDEPENDENT has just con
cluded the purchase of a Model 1
Mergenthaler Linotype typesetting
machine. This machine and its equip
ment when installed will be the most
complete machine typesetting outfit in
northeastern North Carolina.
The machine and its equipment wil?
cost over $4,000 in addition to the cosl
of installation. It has six type maga
zines with a range of ten1 different
faces of type, enabling the operator tc
set practically every line of type re
quired in the most complicated display
advertisement, as well as the genera"
run of straight reading matter.
Years ago THE INDEPENDENT
found it cheaper to contract for its
machine typesetting, than to buy z
machine. But times have changed and
THE INDEPENDENT is growing al!
the time. This newspaper has reached
a point where it can no longer depend
upon outside plants for its machine
type composition. THE INDEPEN
also contemplates improvements which
will require greater typesetting facili
ties. An illustration of the machine
purchased is shown herewith.
This machine is the same mod?l
used by Jack Wells Linotype Printery,
the only difference being in the number
of magazines and equipment. Mr.
Walls at present handles practically all
of the machine type composition re
quired by this newspaper.
