Norton Sees Saving
in Spite of Printing
(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Neb., Jan. 22.-(Speclal.)
In his report on the printing contract Rep
resentative Norton today showed that un
der the old system the 1913 ljoune Journal
cost $4,232. Under a revision of the con
tract let for the present session, whVreln
the corrected copy of the Journal which
has been paid for at the rate of I1B0 a
page, could 'be cut out and the printed
copy or pin ksheet placed on the mem
bers' desks each morning could be given
two day Instead of one for the printing,
cutting out the necessity of double time
for night work, the 1913 journal would
probably cost $4,6S6, making a difference
this year about $449 or thereabouts.
He thought that the advantage
gained would more than make up for the
extra coat. He also recommended the
typewritten engrossed bill Instead of the
printed bill a another saving In cost
