DOT'S FOR SURE:
Spots Before Your Eyes
Really Make Up Photos
By GEORGE WALKER
As you glance over the photographs appearing in today's Daily,
take a close look at the thousands of little dots that make up each
Fifty years ago today a bright photo-engraver discovered the intri-
cate process behind those dots and thus opened a new era of the
press-an age in which a picture can be taken half-way around the
world and appear in your newspaper within a few hours.
* * * *I
THE PROCESS IS CALLED half-tone, and it involves a tremen-
dous battery of equipment-including cameras, arc lights, zinc plates,
and a good helping of acid.
Here's how it's done :
It all starts with the photographer, who, after "taking" a fire
or wreck or touchdown play, rushes the exposed film to a dark-
room, where it is developed in the usual way. A print is made
of this, and another picture is taken of the print, this time
through a finely ruled plate glass screen, constructed in such a
way as to admit light only through thousands of tiny transparent
When the negative is developed, the tones of the original picture
are represented by dots. Then a print is made of this second negative,
this time on a copper or zinc plate coated with a sensitive solution
made of water, fishglue, and ammonium bichromate.
THE PLATE, after printing, is placed in an acid bath, and left
there 'till the dots are as small as possible. The raised portions are
protected by the fishglue solution.
A finishing process refines the dots, making them as small as
the particular use of the picture deserves.
After a proof is made of the "cut," it is compared with the
original print, and further alterations are made, if necessary.

features three of the mellowest
voices in radio, the Club offers a
fine combination of variety enter-

screen star whose voice is re-

Somehow, even the commercials
are inoffensive, and you can lean
back peacefully and almost pic-

For the past three years
they've been helped by a net-

Each year representatives of all
