When Your Newsletter Needs A Little Anything

WHEN YOUR NEWSLETTER NEEDS A LITTLE--ANYTHING

For years, people who put together newsletters, church bulletins, and other publications on personal computers have had a fallback when it comes to artwork. Using "clip art" programs, they have been able to crank out graphics, maps, cartoons, and other art elements on shoestring budgets.

A Chicago company reasoned that if such programs work for art, why not text? Dartnell Corp. has introduced a product called ClipEdit. It contains short stories, anecdotes, and other copyright-free editorial matter such as health and personal finance tips that harried newsletter editors can use to fill last-minute holes. Dartnell says the articles on its $60 floppy disks, available in MS-DOS, Windows, and Macintosh formats, are professionally written and edited. With programs such as Dartnell's, you may not be mistaken anymore if you swear you just read the same article somewhere else. EDITED BY BART ZIEGLER
