The assign- ments were then distributed to the reporters. After a week ' s time the reporters sent their stories to press. Next the galleys were proofread and the paper was laid out. The paper was once again sent to the printers. When the pa- pers were sent back the reporters folded them, then they were dis- tributed to the homerooms.
