WOO WOl Clljr HID am We shouldnt take paper for granted IM A TRIFLE REDFACED as I begin this visit with you Al though paper newsprint pa per has been a principal tool in my profession as a jour nalist it wasnt until recently that I witnessed the process by which sizable logs are converted into paper So that you will not conclude however that all newspaper men are as remiss in this mat ter as I am I should admit that in our company of eight at the Minnesota Ontario paper manufacturing establishment in Fort Francis Ontario I was the only one who hadnt viewed the conversion of pines into pa per Down through the years at the drop of a hat Ive rhapsodized about Germanys Johann Guten berg credited with having in vented movable type Ive sung the praises of Ottmar Mergen thaler GermanAmerican in ventor of the linotype which en abled one man to do the work of eight or ten hand composition printers Iti high time f began giving credit to those who gave mean ing to these two inventions movable type and the linotype Without the paper on which to do the printing made possible by these two inventions they wouldnt even have been good museum Later perhaps in my next commentary I want to de scribe what unfolded before my eyes on a visit to one of M Os three immense papermills one ofwhich supplies the news print for my own newspaper But in this visit Id like to recall some interesting and significant history Id like to tell the story of paper in a sketchy sort of way The story starts thousands of years ago when mans inner urge to express his thoughts in writing and in pictures began to take form The opening chap ter has to do with primitive man drawing pictures on the walls of his cave Babylonians living in what later was to become Mesopo tamia and in what is now called Iraq wrote messages on heavy clay tablets and carried them from place to place Egyptians of that faroff day wrote on thin strips of the stems of a native plant called papyrus within the shadows of the pyra mids It was from that word papyrus that the modern word paper came Persians to the east and north of Babylonia in what is now known as Iran made parchment by splitting the skins of goats sheep and calves The process consisted of soaking the skins in lime scraping them smooth and drying them Because parch m e n t s were hard to come by they were used more than once The erasures from the previous use however were seldom complete One fascinating task of schol ars down through the centuries has been not merely to translate the top writings but to recon struct the original writings by deciphering letters and words which escaped complete era sure Such parchments Verc called palimpsests The word Palimp sest appropriately enough has been given to a publication of the Iowa State historical society The history of Iowa the Hawkeye magazine recalls in each issue may be likened to a palimpsest which holds the record of successive generations To decipher these records of the past reconstruct them and tell the stories they contain is the task of those who write his tory China appears to havo the spawning place for the art of making paper from fibrous matter Some historians trace it back to the second century fore Christ and a young scholar named Tsal Lun figures prom Turn Paflo 2 FiveDay Iowa Temperatures during the next five days will average near normal a little warmer at the start of the
