QuoteThe production department, comprising seven American and Allied employees and 99 indigenous (German) employees, uses a bodge-podge of equipment accumulated during combat days, including ten German linotypes, one American linotype, two American Ludlow casting machines, and two German mat press machines. The printing equipment consists of three M.A.N. rotary presses with a capacity of 16 full-size pages each. Two of these presses can be operated as one unit, with a capacity of 32 full-size or 64 Stars and Stripes format pages (tabloid size). A completely equipped engraving room, capable of producing all types of line cuts, half tones, and color plates also is in operation.
