Preserving a Section Newspaper

Reading The LaRue County Herald News, July 18, 2007 edition page 7A I found a small section about how to save newsprint. Paraphrased, it says:

1) Dissolve a Milk of Magnesia table in a quart of club soda and let sit overnight.
2) Aftering sitting the required time, pour the mixture into a pan the newsprint will fit in.
3) Soak the newsprint for 1 hour.
4) Remove and pat dry.
5) Place the newsprint section on a flat surface and wait till completely dry.

After this treatment, the life of the newsprint section is 200 years.

I wonder if this will keep it from turning yellow over time?
