The World's Greatest College Daily


NE~W MODEL "E," DUPLEX PRINTING PRESS-Prints 6,ooo eight-page papers per hour, a marvel of ingenuity and simplicity, printing from a rol of paper four miles ong.

The pictutre above shows the $10,000 press purchased, Last
/week by thte Board of Ciontrol of Student Publications, which~ will
giy a The d~all the fintest college publication-owlped press in the
voll 03-, A glanice, at the illustration Will show a compact me-
phaical stru~cture, but closer examination of the press reveals
te Marvelousi~ ngenuity which has brought it to the forefron~t
in every state in the GLfiton as well as all prs of the civlized
world, The strength and, stability of this model of the Duplex
will appear ill the fact that It has 'a double locomotive drive andi
weighs ,5,000 pounds. Thle delicacy and Iigenuity is shown by
theo fact that there are mnore than 5,09 parts, all being skillfullyk
fitted, and making a machine to w' ork a niearly perfect as' may
be irnaginied.
The 1)44llyDress will print from 5,540 to 4.000 eight-pag~e
papers per hour. Tihe Baily -Will be printed from a roll of paper
four illes in len t14~ the rolls being Sty, 509 and 70 inches wide,
aecording to the size of thepiper required. An eight-page
pappr, for Instance, is printed fronm a 70-inch roll which -weighs

about 1,000 pounds. Occupying a flogr space of approximately
18 by 17 feet, and with the tremendous weight as mentioned, this
great miachine runs so easily that one scarcely realizes the speed
with which the papers are printed, except by watching them as
they faillinto, the delivery box.
The paper is fed from a roll and passes over the feed rollers
near the center of the press; thence over a looping roller oiper-
uted by 'equalizer cams and levers; thence it isy guided by rolls
suitably placed in the printing cylinder which prints one side of
the paper, then to and under another looping roller, operated
by the same mechanism. These loopinig rollers perform'a very
Important function-that of receiving the constantly incoming
paper, and at the same time constantly delivering tile outgoing
web, while the paper between these two, looping rolls remain
stationary In its path of travel during the time it Is being printed
upon by the two impression cylinders. Immediately after the
impressions are taken and the printing is done by the cylinders

in itheir travel in either direction, that portion of the web which
has been stopped is moved forward the proper distance to bring
sufficient blank 'paper for the next Impression, or tihe printing of
the next paper. The heavy Model "E" Duplex press, like that to
be installed in The D~aily offices prints, in printers' parlance,
"both; a-going and a-coining," different to most other presses
made and giving double speed.
After ┬░the printed web of paper leaves the upper equalizing
roller -it is slit by a revolving cutter lilt two parts, one of which
passes over a couple of "angle bars," bringing this portion of the
web into the direct line elevator of the other part. Both parts
now travel together over the V-shaped former, which practically
makes the second fold. The printing web, now brought to single
size, passes through the short netting cylinders which sever each
complete paper from the web. The third-fold tucker strikes this
on the center of the paper, and instantly it has the third fold
made In it and is speeding on its way to the third fold delivery.
