Not illustrated. 1921 edition. Excerpt: ...column in the usual way and restore the EM-RACK POINTER. The next measure will be a combination of the first iwo figure columns, which will make 7% ems. In this measure there is one rule that does not cut through and consequently one rule for which "turnback" must be allowed. One rule equals 2 points and 2 points equal 5 units of 7-set, which is the " turnback" that must be allowed in each one of the measures of this second box because all these measures are the same. " As the EM-RACK is now against its STOP no "turnback" can be made unless one or two ems are struck to bring the RACK away from the STOP.

Every measure from here out to the end will be set exactly as was the second and the EM-RACK POINTER brought finally to even zero. At thispoint it must be determined how much " turnback" has been made on the six measures and this amount subtracted from the total "deadwood." The balance will be the "deadwood" for this line, which should be set before justifying. The next line is the type line in which four figures and a period are centered in each measure. There are different methods of handling this line, some of which will be explained in this exercise.
