    Background: A TELE-NEWSPAPER AGE HAS COME THOUGH IT IS STILL ON EXPERIMENT AS IT COST TOO EXPENSIVE. IN JAPAN, ALL THE NEWSPAPERS ARE DELIVERED TO EACH SUBSCRIBERS EVEN IN MOUNTAINOUS ARE AND THE PRICE IS SAME. HOWEVER, IT IS NOW VERY DIFFICULT TO GET HOLD OF DELIVERY BOY AND RETAIN THEM AS ALL THE MAIN JAPANESE NEWSPAPER PUBLISHING COMPANY MAKE IT A RULE TO ISSUE BOTH MORNING EDITION AND EVENING EDITION THROUGHOUT A WEEK EXCEPT SUNDAY NIGHT. SO LOCAL NEWSPAPER AGENCY HAS TO DELIVER THEM TO EACH HOME OR OFFICES TWICE A DAY FROM EARLY IN THE MORNING SOMETIME 5:00 a.m. TO 6:00 p.m.. TO DELIVER THEM INDIVIDUALLY. THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE INCLUDES THIS DELIVERY FEE AND STILL AROUND ONE STERLING A MONTH. THEY ISSUE AROUND 32 PAGES PAPER ALMOST EVENING DAY INCLUDING MORNING AND EVENING PAPER THOUGH MAJORITY OF THEM ARE ADVERTISEMENT OF GOODS. DUE TO DEVELOPMENT OF TELEVISION NEWS, NEWSPAPER IS UNABLE TO COMPETE WITH TELEVISION NEWS. AS EVENING EDITION'S DEAD TIME IS AROUND THREE O'CLOCK AND MORNING EDITION'S DEAD TIME IS AROUND 0200 a.m.. WHATEVER SOMETHING IMPORTANT HAPPENS AFTER THREE p.m. UNTIL THREE a.m. IS ENTIRELY ON GOOD FOR NEWSPAPER AS THEY HAVE NO MEANS TO COMMUNICATE TO THE PUBLIC. ONLY RADIO AND T.V. NEWS CAN TRANSMIT LATEST NEWS. HOWEVER, THE PEOPLE ARE APT TO EVALUATE THE NEWSPAPER AS A RECORD. THEY WISH TO READ RATHER THAN JUST TO LISTEN AS THERE ARE NO WAY TO CONFIRM SOMETHING IMPORTANT IF ONE DOES NOT LISTEN OR WATCH T.V..SO THAT MANY NEWSPAPER AGENCIES IN JAPAN ARE NOW DEVELOPING THIS TYPE OF TELE-NEWSPAPER UTILIZING TV TRANSMISSION CIRCUIT USING SAME PRINCIPLE OF WIRE PHOTOS. NOW THE PAPER PUBLISHING COMPANIES ARE DEVELOPING THESE NEWS SYSTEM IN ASSOCIATION WITH ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURERS. THIS IS A TOSHIBA ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURING COMPANY'S NEWS WIRE-PHOTO TRANSMITTER REVISED ONE WHICH CAN TRANSMIT SPECIALLY EDITED TAPLOID VERSION TO THE RECEIVER WHICH IS INSTALLED INSIDE THE UNITED NATION PAVILION IN EXPO 70 SITE, JUNE 29, JULY 1ST AND JULY 3RD AND 5TH, THE ASAHI PRESS IN OSAKA RECORDED SATELLITE TRANSMISSION
    OF THE NEW YORK TIMES EXNEWYORK DIRECTLY AND REPRODUCED THEM IN SMALL ASAHI EVENING TYPE WHICH IS SO CLEAR. AT THE EXPO SITE, THE SPECIAL RECEIVER IS INSTALLED WHERE A COPY OF THE NEWSPAPER IS COMING OUT ONE BY ONE AND DELIVERED TO THOSE WHO WANT IT. THE TROUBLE IS THE PAPER THEY USE IS MORE OR LESS LIKE "XEROX" PAPER AND COST ABOUT 2 SHILLINGS A PAGE AND CAN NOT BE USED FOR DAILY PURPOSE. THE RECEIVER IS EXPERIMENTAL ONE LIKE A TELEVISION SET WHICH COST MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND STERLING. THEY SAY IN THE FUTURE, THEY SHALL BE ABLE TO MAKE A SPECIAL SET AROUND 60 OR 70 POUNDS AND CAN BE USED AS TELE-NEWS RECEIVER AS WELL AS ORDINARY TELEVISION SET. BUT, IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME AND THE COST OF PAPER IS TOO EXPENSIVE. SO THAT ONLY CERTAIN PEOPLE WHO ARE SO EAGER TO GET FIRST HAND NEWS MIGHT BUY THIS FACILITY AND SUBSCRIBE THIS TELE-NEWS PAPER THOUGH NUMBERS OF THE PEOPLE WHO SUBSCRIBE WILL BE LIMITED FOR THE TIME BEING OR UNTIL IT BECAME REASONABLE PRICE. ON THE OTHER HAND. THE NEWSPAPER PUBLISHING COMPANIES SAY THAT THE DIE IS CAST. THE FIRST COME, THE FIRST SERVED. SO THEY ARE TRYING TO GET APPROVAL OF THE TELECOMMUNICATION MINISTRY TO UTILIZE VACANT CHANNEL OF TV AND WOULD LIKE TO MATERIALIZE THIS TELE-NEWSPAPER. BUT, SOON OR LATER, THIS TELE-NEWSPAPER WILL BE IN COMMON IN THE FUTURE DESPITE THE COST AND SUBSCRIPTION FEE.
