In preparing typewritten "copy""
for THE NEWS, it is best to use
double spacing, as single-spacing
does not leave sufficient room for al
tering, changing, or making correc
tions, or additions, which frequently
has to be done. The majority of
contributors to the press use the
single-spacing in preparing their
copy. This works a hardship on
editor and the linotype operator.
The latter finds it a very difficult
matter to follow the "copy" accu
rately when it is single-spaced, as
the copy-holder on a linotype ma
chine is not very wide. The opera
tor, using a metal guide to keep
track of the line, finds it a great
inconvenience to handle single
spaced copy. Please remember this.
