THE SUNDAY SUPPLEMENT E _FINGERS AND STEADY NErVES DO IT From the wires of UnIiteciPress Inter national to the barracks and homes at Guantanamo, the Git o Gazette covers the Base with a blanht of the 1a test world ndws for you the reader. Most ships,smali bases and lare shore installations have newspapers,but few have a.10 page daily. Our paper is quite a feat in itself; there is much time spent analyzing the news to bring the best to you from the miles ofTeletype copy recei'vd in the WGBY newsroom, The Gazette is the olyi carrier ofnaws both stateside and wo1rid wide which is designed to reach all Base personnel. It is probably the individual's most important link with the rest of th. world, and it is vital to all of us to know what is happening, when it hape.ns and where it happens. The staff of the Gazette starts their ayr at 7 a.m. and finishes about 7rp.m. if they're lucky. It's wht goes on during that twelve hour stretch that c"untc" Lee Pelsinger, J02 is the Editor of the Gazette and also. serves in the capa city of news analyst. He will deliver the most interesting and up-to-date news to Joe Johns, J03. Joe will re-read the news and make corrections which may be necessary-due-t othetpybeirg garble d. The Assistant Editor will then set up each page according to the importance of each story. Each page serves its own particular function in the Gazette. For instance, page eight is for editorials only, pages four and five are reserved for world and stateside news briefs. There are three staff typists with the Gazete. It is their job to transfer the news to the stencils. These mn unmercifully pound their typewriters from 8 aan, to 1 p.m., often forsaking the noon meal to hove the paper out at a reasonable hour. The weekends present a special problem to the Gazette staffers, since the Cuban employees who normally run the reproducing machines for the Gazette is off Saturdey and Sunday. This means one of typists will be running off the 'prs while the others type under a onemnshort handicap. After the paper is "put to bed!' the Gitmo Gazette staff stapels 400 copies of the ten page paper (larger on Sundays) and delivers them to var ious housing units. There is much glory attached to pro ducing the Gazette, just the feeling of *self satisfaction of knowing they have done their best to inform their .shipm.tes and Base residents about the news in our rapidly changing world.
