What does a Copy Cutter do?

Examines copy to determine time and date for publication, type style, and size specified for headings and body.

Cuts copy into sections, marks sections with type size if cuts are to be used, and distributes to composing room. May mark sections to aid in assembling type and cuts in galley.
