Mr. STEED. On the matter of your 100th anniversary celebration, I think that is quite an important occasion. I wonder if you could pinpoint the timing of it for us. Do you have any specific dates when you have any special things arranged?

Mr. HARRISON. Yes, sir. We are preparing and you will receive notice of a dinner in which the Allied Printing Industries of Washington, and in fact nationally, are participating. That date is June 27.

We are now in the process of planning an exhibit which will be in Harding Hall. We are also trying to clean up Harding Hall a little bit so it will be a little more acceptable. That will be ready at least by that time and perhaps before and then we will keep that display for the balance of the year. It will be in the back end of Harding Hall out of the way so that we can keep it. It will show as nearly as we can the progress of the Government Printing Office in the 100 years.

We are also preparing a history of the Government Printing Office that is in page proof now, which tells pretty clearly what has happened since the beginning of the Printing Office. That was a job that the Joint Committee on Printing authorized last fall sometime. The page proof will be submitted to the Joint Committee on Printing before we go to press on it.

STREAMLINING OF OPERATIONS

vided for in the appropriation for congressional printing and binding Records Service was anthorized (22 F.R. 8895; 1 CFR part 4) to feel as a special edition of the Federal Register the Public Papers of the fi of the United States starting with the calendar year 1957. The could

Mr. STEED. On page 2 of your statement you refer to your plan to streamline your operations. Can you give us a little more in detail what you have in mind ?

Mr. HARRISON. Yes, sir; I think so.

The trend in printing equipment, for instance, has been in offset over the years, as you probably have heard said. It is a much faster and cheaper way to do printing, and in fact in many instances it is equally as good as the letterpress. In the offset field the trend is be

Register (sec, 6, 49 Stat. 501; 44 U.S.C. 306).

ginning to move to web-fed offset presses. Instead of being fed a sheet at a time, it is fed in a roll, constantly. We have on order two large web-fed offset presses which will certainly streamline our offset department. We have room for two more of those presses.

To give you an example of what we mean by streamlining, these two web-fed offset presses will take the place of five sheet-fed presses, which reduces our manpower requirements and speeds up production because they are so much faster. The Congressional Record is printed on web-fed letterpresses. On sheet-fed presses the speed is limited by the speed of the feeder of the paper into the machine. You can only feed those sheets so fast or you get a wrinkle and sometimes your blanket is ruined and you have to stop the press and start over again.

In our bindery we are planning some streamlined steps. The printing equipment manufacturing industry, after sleeping for 50 years, about 10 years ago came to life. I have said many times in speaking to various organizations that the printing equipment manufacturers have advanced further in the last 10 years in modernizing the equipment they produce than they did in the previous 50 years. It is difficult to keep up with them. One of the biggest jobs I had when I was with the Joint Committee on Printing was to keep up with the printing equipment manufacturers and the changes. Every time we brought a particular type of equipment under control the manufacturer would improve the machine, speed it up. It is fantastic what they are doing. And that is equally true in the bindery field. There are a number of very advanced pieces of equipment in the bindery field which we want to take advantage of. We feel when you can put in one piece of equipment to take the place of two or three pieces of equipment, it does not take very long to pay for that equipment, because the manpower is the big investment in a plant.

Mr. STEED. In the field of typesetting, on any of your machines are you using the tape-fed machine instead of the operator-fed machines?

Mr. HARRISON. In our monotype sections they are fed by tape. The keyboard operator punches the tape and it goes to another machine that casts the type. Our cold type composition setup in the departmental office uses the varityper and cold type machine. But that is primarily for verifying both edges.

Mr. STEED. In the use of tape on linotypes, it is mostly limited to straight production?

Mr. HARRISON. In our Office, linotypes do not use tape. That is a keyboard matter where the man sets his type and raises a lever. On the monotype the material is punched on a roll of tape and it is put on another machine that casts the type.

Mr. STEED. A lot of the smaller newspapers are using the tape, more all the time.

Mr. HARRISON. Yes.
