When we arrived at St. Joe's, we learned that our daily
reading and listening habits were about to change. No radio or TV or Chronicle
or Examiner. However, we soon discovered that we had the benefit of an
immensely more entertaining source of news:
As the saying goes: READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Actually, this "slick paper" version of the Blow was, if my memory is correct, something of an anomaly. The Blows I remember were produced on the dittograph machine. I believe this was in a small room on the first floor of the main wing and used some sort of alcohol-based system to transfer ink from the stencil to the paper. Did we really get some sort of "high" from that? Remember the yellow, military surplus paper that we produced much of our ditto'd materials on? Remember the fun it was making corrections on ditto stencils: scraping off the ink, getting indelible purple stains on hands and clothing, etc. etc. etc.
Ok, folks, let's have some contributed memories here. Who staffed the Blow when we were in Third High. I think OB was the sports editor, but I don't remember the rest. Use the comment form below to add your recollections.
Rich Monahan has contributed this article by Brian Joyce from one Blow issues when we were in Third High. Ok, so we have 2 staff members pinned down. Who else? (I think I may have done some typing for it.)
