This period saw a complete, consistent lineup: The Model 5 continued as a simple single-magazine machine for smaller offices; the experiments in enhancing it (Modesl 18 and 19) were abandoned. (It is covered elsewhere, not here.) The Model 8 and its variations (14, 11) continued as a standard multiple-magazine nonmixer for straight matters. While the Model 9 and its variations (covered elsewhere) continued as "extreme display" (my term) machines, the Models 25 and 26 were introduced as machines which could handle mixing between two magazines (simultaneously) only. This proved the more practical solution for mixing.
Around this time, features which previously had merited separate model numbers (such as wide-measure (which was now up to 42 Em) or 72-channel display capabilities) became simply features available on other models. The distinction of a model number was reserved for very basic configuration features such as mixer vs. nonmixer, or the presence or absence of side magazines. The auxiliary/side magazines also changed from the earlier 28-channel versions to a 34-channel version, and then a wide 34-channel version.
