General Note / OCR

Readersview: The committee making the decision to delete credit lines from photographs should call its decision, 'Kill Incentive in Government Photographers.'
Viewpoint: Industry and the General Services Administration are having their problems negotiating contracts for the new year, and the delays in getting them out are costing the government money, and government photographers an inconvenience.
Newsviews: The Defense Department will hold in March the first of what may become an annual series of photojournalism workshops. Meanwhile, the department has also announced ground rules for its first Military Motion Picture Photography Contest.
Printing and Processing: Two of the government's top photographers, Carl Purcell and Bob Moeser, take a critical look at printing and processing. Purcell says more of it should be farmed out to custom labs. Moeser says government darkroom technicians should do it themselves. The pro side of the argument begins on Page 12; the con, Page 14.
Portfolio: Harrison Allen
Government Photography Tests: Kodak's Ektagraphic MFS-8; The Yashica Electro-35, and Nikon's new FTN meter/finder.
Critique: Don Moore comments on NPPA's 'Flying Short Course' and the Pentagon's participation in it.
