    I was in the typewriter business many years ago and a professor cam in and talked about.
    A sentence that you can type on a typewriter that uses all the letters once...
    I remember the last word was a key word i thought was
    elp
    and thought he said it was a small anamel

    A sentence that contains all the letters of the alphabet is called a "pangram." Besides the "quick brown fox" example, here are two more:

    My faxed joke won a pager in the cable TV quiz show.
    Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.
