ASSOCIATION PURCHASES NEW PRESS  A significant advance in the equipment of the headquarters office of the American Medical Association has been the recent installation of a Goss press which prints at one time ninety-six pages assembled in forms ready for gathering. The new press is driven by a 50 horse power motor with a 5 horse power auxiliary motor; eleven months was required to build the press to order. It is 43 feet long, 16½ feet wide, 10½ feet high, and weighs 80 tons. This press was ordered nearly two years ago. It is one of the latest model presses, making it possible to print two colors in one run and to hasten the speed of publication of The Journal and of Hygeia, both of which now have a circulation sufficient to warrant the use of a press of this capacity.
