This was a fun observation.
Question: What’s the “-30-“ at the bottom imply, the number of lines typed? Inquiring minds want to know.
“-30-” traditionally indicated the end of a story turned in by a reporter. There are many theories but nobody knows exactly why. Many years ago I worked at a newspaper where colleagues had a flower arrangement with “-30-” at a co-worker’s funeral.
As Leigh would personally know, when the Chicago Tribune moved out of the Tribune Tower, they offered tshirts for sale with the -30- on it. (well, actually, Leigh, I don’t know if you knew about the tshirts) https://www.spudart.org/blog/tribune-tower-tshirt/

Cool! I didn’t know about the “-30-” shirts.
By the way, I once met Sam Zell in an elevator at the Tower. He was dressed in leather and carrying a motorcyle helmet, having just arrived on his Ducati.
“Hey!” I said. “I’ve got an idea for a great T-shirt for you.”
“Oh, yeah? What is it?” Zell asked.
“It says,” I told him, “‘If you can read this, the Chandler Family fell off.'”
Fortunately, Zell laughed!
