With the proposal for the Journal-World to become a morning paper delivered by 6 a.m., how many of the existing paper carriers do you expect to retain? Is this a good thing to do for the Lawrence economy, to cut young teen-agers out of the employment market? How will paper delivery be handled, if not by young people? “We’re extremely proud of the young men and women who are and who have been our carriers,” said Ralph Gage, general manager of the Journal-World. “We certainly expect to experience some changes in our route structure, but we will not automatically terminate our contractual relationship with any existing carrier solely because of the change in the delivery cycle. Although many routes may be taken by adults, the after-school sports and other activities that have prevented some youngsters from having paper routes no longer will represent a conflict. Admittedly, it will require a more dedicated young person (and parents) to deliver a morning route, but teens for generations have grown up as carriers in communities with morning newspapers.
