    Background: From Oct 20 "The New York Times" will be published in Paris simultaneously with the New York editions. This has been made possible ny electronic type-setting, linked to the trans-Atlantic cable.

    For the French printing staff in the newspaper's Paris printing works, it is largely a question of standing by and watching the machine at work, as it sets the articles and reports relayed from New York.

    Information about the make-up of the paper, together with photographs to be reproduced, is relayed by radio. In Paris, local information is also added, such as the weather forecast and programme of the day's events.

    "The New York Times" takes another stride forward, while two days earlier two well-known British papers - "The News Chronicle" and "The Star" - ceased publication.
