23. UNIT Y/UNIT Y/ HARMONYHARMONY
24. The content of every page and of every double page spread should blend into a harmonious unit. Headlines should complement each
25. Pictures should not distract the eye too much from the type. No one part of the page should overshadow entirely another part of a page, although there should be one dominant point of interest.
27. Pages should not seem top or bottom heavy. They should not lean to the left or to the right Perfect balance is achieved by having like units balancing

29. Display news according to its importance. The news value of every story must determine its page in the newspaper, its position on a page, and the size and style of headline it is to have.
30. Do not distort the news value of a story by giving it a more important position or a larger headline than it deserves. All stories on page one should be more important than other stories, except
31. The upper right-hand corner of the first page is usually considered the most important position. The upper left is second. Positions above the fold are more important than below, boldface type gives more prominence than light-face- type.

40. Contrasting adjacent headlines will help to emphasize the importance of each other. Boxes and pictures between heads are sometimes good makeup
