How have newspapers changed since 1937?

A bit of an old school post today, but this is almost too interesting to ignore.

A former employee of The Record mailed us a 1937 style book that was used at the paper to dictate proper usage, spelling, etc...much like the AP Stylebook is used by every major news organization today.

Page through a PDF of the short book here and pick out what you find interesting and discuss in the comment section below.

Is there something here you wish we still did? Does anything jump out at you as being particularly odd compared to how things operate today?

Let me know!
