From the foreword: “The Department of Army is responsible for carrying out an effective indoctrination in all major langauegs of the world which have an alphabet or written form.  To cartry out this mission, the Army must provide the equipment needed to prepare news sheets, broadsides, posters, training publications, orientation literature, and information leaflets.  Necessary, of course, to the effective dissemination of this information is field equipment capable of type-setting, printing, and reproducing material in any one of some forty-odd languages.  The responsibility for this development is delegated to the U. S. Army Materiel Command’s Natick Laboratories … It is believed that the reliable technical, language, and engineering data obtained through this study will make it possible to develop efficient and economical field typesetting equipment for these Indian languages.  This will provide a military capability for disseminating timely indoctrination material that can be understood by more than 93% of the literate populace of India.”  Includes as an appendix a “Report on printing facilities available in India” by S.
