'44 RED BOOK MAY USE PHOTO OFFSET
New Printing Process Would Give Scope for Originality in Design
There is a good chance that the 1944 Red Book will be printed by the new photo offset process, chairman A. Roy Atherton announced last night. Such a revolutionary change in the Yardling yearbook would probably mean less expense and more scope for orginality in page design and makeup.
Whether this comes through or not, it is certain that the "44 edition will be a considerably larger book than last year's. Atherton said, because of the larger list of Freshmen who have to be included. This year there are 1020 pictures to go in, which will necessitate about 280 pages. The 1943 Red Book, with 910 listed, had 260 pages.
In addition to negotiating with offset printers and preparing the pictures and names for the register, the Board has been busy getting subscriptions and contacting advertisers, he said, as well as taking pictures of football games. Radcliffe teas, and other Freshman functions. $100 cash in subscriptions has already been collected, according to the Red Book head, with 100 more Yardlings pledged to pay later.
