Pots of glue and nicks of the razor. I remember these days on the student newspaper.
This guy, who looks familiar, but I can't place him, is laying out an advertisement or a story for inclusion in the next edition of The Auburn Plainsman. Or he's slicing paper to make one of those too-clever jokes that littered the walls. That was reason enough to work there.
I started at the paper as one of the last groups to use the old glue method. It is all done by computer now, of course. Back then we were using both techniques. Knowing both seemed important.
The Plainsman has won 24 Pacemakers, the college equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, the second most honored college paper in the country. Most recently the staff from the 2004-2005 can boast a Pacemaker. The paper won three during the time I was a part of the staff.
The Auburn Plainsman today.
