HOW IT IS WITHOUT NEWSPAPERS If Americans are a nation of avid newspaper readers-which they are-then New Yorkers are probably the national champions in the field. For it is pretty well established that a very high per- centage of .those who work and live in New York City and it.~ en- Virons read four newspapers per day; one delivered a~, home with ~breakfast, one while commuting to the job, one wi~:le traveling back home; and a fourth delivered to the house each evening. Dur- ing the pre-hol'iday shopping sea- son the larger newspapers are not measured by pages but by how many pounds .they weigh. With this background, it is un- derstandable that television and" radio programs emanating from the island of Manhattan these las~ two weeks have been replete with complaints about the lack of news papers as the result of a .~trike of deliverymen. New York Ci,ty with- ou,t newspapers is a city bereft of one of its major sources of enter- tainment and education, noT, to mention time-killers for long sub- way train and bus rides to and ~ozt zLorc'% like Macy'z and Gim- bel's, repoz'ted plenty of shoppers because "people knew we had something to sell" the smaller re- tailers were seriously damaged. Sales were off as much .as 30 per cent, according to one ,television news report. The Wall Street Journal was not affected by the strike; and many of its subscribers complained their copies were stolen. Numbers wri- ters were stuck; nobody publish- ed the total betting at Pimlico race track in Bal.timore. But 1H.- .ter collections dropped 25 per cent. from work.

Departmen.t of Agriculture, according to Exten- sion specialists at West Virginia University. And the bill-for some items at least-may be a li.ttle less. Prospects are for more meat, es pecially pork and more broilers in 1959 ,than in 1958. Vegetables and fruit supplies also ~should be some what heavier than t~he likelihood of more nearly normal we~.ther condi,tions than were experienced in 1958.
