Monday, December 16. 1991 DAILY NEWS 21 DAILY BUSINESS NEWS Kksra mug By RICKI RJLMAN Daily News Business Writer The greedy '80s are gone forever and with them such glossy magazines as 7 Days, Smart and Fame that reflected the conspicuous consumption of the decade. With their passing comes a magazine perhaps better suited to the lifestyles of the '90s: New York Mix, a twice-a-month tabloid that, for $1 a copy, plans to celebrate adventurous thrift. Set for a Feb. 1, 1992 debut, Mix will be a nonprofit magazine providing some transitional employment for disadvantaged New Yorkers while reporting on urban lifestyles. "We will promote community involvement and debate challenging solutions to the city's crises," said publisher Rod Richardson. The goal is to make giving and volunteering hip and to help New Yorkers get involved in their community by regularly reviewing government and social service agencies and charities the way movies and restaurants are reviewed by other magazines. t "We will also tell readers how to contact public officials when agencies aren't working properly, so they can make their day living hell," Richardson said. Mix will look something like the defunct 7 Days and, like that publication, will initially limit circulation to Manhattan: But its focus will be completely different, because it has been created to function as a therapeutic work community. "We will hire some jobless or homeless New Yorkers, who are clients of social service agencies, such as Partnership for the Homeless," said Richardson. Three staffers will work with them exclusively. The disadvantaged employes will begin in entry-level jobs and as vendors. Unlike most magazines, which are distributed by independent contractors, Mix will put 50 vendors on staff, train them and give them a base salary plus commissions and health benefits. The professional staff numbers 10, said Richardson, who previously founded and edited the nonprofit publications The Entrepreneurship Forum at New York University and the defunct Morning-side Review at Columbia University. Jonathan Rowe, a former columnist for the Christian Science Monitor, is executive editor. The magazine will sell advertising and receive private funding from businesses and various foundations, including the George F. Baker charitable trust Real estate exec Larry Silverstein has provided office space at 120 Broadway and The Gap has given a grant for vendor uniforms. So far New York Mix has raised $255,000 and has pledges for $500,000 more. Richarson said there has been a good reception from potential retail advertisers, who "seem to like the idea that we're a socially responsible company." The magazine could do well, even during this economic climate, analysts said, because businesses like to get involved with worthy causes. "It sounds like something which would bring warmth and good feelings to an advertiser," said Joe Frohlinger, publisher of Marketing Strategist, an industry newsletter. We will also tell readers how to contact public officials when agencies aren't working properly, so they can make their day living hell.' pub'hhtr Rod FJchardsoa D.QD. sosijgltt ffrtaifDISTpyiro(ui By ROB POWER Daily News Staff Writer The latest young casualty of subway joyriding a critically injured boy lay unconscious, unidentified and alone last night in a Brooklyn hospital. ?The whole thing is tragic," Transit Authority police spokesman Al O'Leary said last night as cops tried to trace the identity of the boy as he lay in critical condition at Kings County Hospital. The youngster suffered serious head injuries at 1:45 p.m. Saturday when he fell off a southbound IRT No. 4 train during a death-defying joyride through Brooklyn, O'Leary said. Police said he apparently slipped and fell while clinging to the outside of the last car of the train as it lurched out of the Kingston Ave. station in Crown Heights. He was taken unconscious to Kings County, where he was listed last night as critical and not responsive. The boy was apparently unaccompanied at the time of his fall and was not carrying identification or other clues to his identity, police said. All police know is that the boy is black, of medium complexion, 12 to 15 years old, 4-feet-ll and about 105 pounds. He was wearing an L.A. Raiders black jacket, green sweatshirt, red pants and white Nike sneakers. A missing persons alert was issued by police. They ask anyone with information to call the New York City Police Department Missing Persons Squad at 212-374-691& "Hopefully,-someone cares enough about this child to respond to our missing persons report," O'Leary said. FRANK R. MILLIKEN Frank R. Milliken, 77, who headed the Kennecott Copper Corp. when it was the world's large copper producer and a leading gold and silver processor, died Dec. 4 of a heart attack at his winter home in Tucson, his family in Darien, Conn., announced yesterday. Milliken headed Kennecott, based in the city, during the 1960s and 1970s, an era of ups and downs brought on by strikes, the nationalization of the company's Chilean mines and new environmental rules. Under Milliken's leadership, Kennecott staged a takeover of the Carborundum Co. in 1977. The next year, the Curtiss-Wright Corp. tried to take over Kennecott through a proxy fight to oust Milliken. Critics, angry about the company's declining earnings, accused him of incompetence. Milliken prevailed, retaining his position and his board of directors with 54 of the shareholders votes. The following year, he retired. ESTHER F.
