McCloskey, —millionaire construction man and chairman of the Democratic National' Finance Committee—last week sold the Philadelphia Daily News. The buyer: Walter H. Annenberg, editor and publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer, bitter oplitical and circulation enemy of the News. McCloskey took' over the paper in 1954,- tried hard to spruce up the one-time scandal sheet. He increased the staff; bought new presses, added a home-delivered edition, brought in David Stern Tuesday Evening, December 17, 1957. from the New Orleans Item as publisher, started a Sunday edi- •tion just last month—and kept losing money. Informed sources say that at one point last year the paper was going into the red at the rate of $50,000 a week. Proper insulation of attics will cut fuel bills by as much as 17 per cent.
