To Complete The Picture Of The Days News More Quickly This newspaper has installed and inaugurated its own service of county-wide news by TELEGRAPH PRINTER over iU own leased wires, in addition to the reports of the largest of the worjd-wide news services on national and foreign events, already received in this manner. , The marked forward step taken to further modernize our news-gathering equipment is in keeping with the policy of this newspaper ever to present to its readers a complete picture of the day ’ s news ... locally, nationally and abroad. ________ , _______ NO OTHER NEWSPAPER IN THE WORLD employs its own telegraph printers on its own wires to bring news gathered by its staff di ­ rectly to its office. g , NO OTHER READERS IN THE WORLD are enabled thus to receive up-to-the-minute news of their locality, their county, their cor ­ ner of the earth. i The latest news of the county government machine, kernels of news from the grist of the courts, interesting stories about per- sous prominent in Westchester, reports of moves on foci to better life as we live it, the humor and pathos, the comedy and heart- throbs of everyday life among our neighbors, arc collected quickly and accurately by our own competent staff and transmitted with the speed of light over this marvelous and unique system installed to present these things to our readers more quickly. ' The telegraph printer is the latest device employed by the larger press associations and by brokerage houses and telegraph companies for the faster transmission of a greater volume of news and business. It tr ansmi ts 60 words a minute and carries more than 25,000 words in an eight-hour day. ” - The transmitting machine is an electrically operated typewriter on which the story is written. As quickly as each key is struck the machine perforates holes in various combinations in a paper tape, which thus permits a vSHety of sensations to be sent over an ordinary telephone wire. Instantaneously the sensations come in to our editor on the receivitig machine, which transfers them to an eleetriealh driven typewriter and prints the story on a roll of paper, as pictured above. Stories are torn from this roll, edited and sent directly to the composing room. v * Within a few minutes after a story “ breaks ” at any important point in the county, it is being typed and perforated in tape on the transmitting machine. Instantly it is printed on the receiving machine in our office. And within an ­ other few minutes, at edition time, the story is in the paper on the street for our readers.
