OPUBCO has been fighting circulation blues on the Times for several years, calling in all kinds of experts and strategists to see if they could reverse the declining Circulation trend. The best money could buy could not change the readtng habttsof Okla- homans, and the Times will be put to rest. This picture is common across the land as after- noon newspapers become collector's items in metropolitan areas. There are several reasons touted about by the experts, but mostly it relates to reading habits. Americans are inclined to read hard news in the morning, and .watch TV, listen to radio, run errands, play sports, attend meetings, or just sit down and read magazines, such as hobby or sports maga- zines, in the evening. Even Congress has cooperated by playing with Daylight Savings time to benefit the sportsmen and hobbyists by providing more daylight in the evening. Another thing is that some metropolitan news- paper empires try to operate both morning and afternoon operations, and the afternoon newspaper is actually a repeat of the morning product. Even though they provide a separate and distinct editori- al staff, the production and sales staff are the same, and the news presentation is usually warmed over from that morning. An exception to this is in Tulsa, where the Tribune is owned independently from the Tulsa World, even though they both own stock in a common production department. The Tribune is having some problems holding their afternoon reading audience and has the lesser of the two cir- culation figures in the Tulsa market, but it is a very healthy afternoon daily newspaper. The lesser market areas, such as Peyne County, are having no problems finding support for the afternoon editions. It is a different market setup and they serve different purposes by handling mostly local news, while the big city dailies are charged with present- ing all the state and world news in a much larger circulation area. Weekly newspapers are staying healthy, and specialized publications and magazines are more healthy than ever. So, one can bid a fond farewell to the metropoli- tan afternoon daily newspapers. If you are a news- paper reader, you will miss it. If you weren't, it doesn't make much difference anyway. CITY HALL MOVES OPENS PRACTICE SELLING --The city PAWNEE--Dr. M.
