The title, -30-, is an old reporters' shorthand which means end of story. It is also the title of a 1959 'Jack Webb' movie about a day in the life of a Los Angeles newspaper. It is always written with hyphens fore and aft. Its origin has been attributed to the early days of telegraphy, when XXX (which is 30 in Roman numerals) signified "end of message." Whatever its origin, the use was established around the time of the Civil War. Since it was originally intended as an instruction to typesetters, its appearance has declined since the advent of computerized typesetting. See more
