Circulation Is Work Perhaps the uninitiated ma> think that keeping track of all sub •crlbers, changing their addresses •when they move, and keeping ac curate records on 3,400 people Is an easy task. A few hours on busy •days In the office will convince anyone that It I* quite a job. When subscribers renew their papers, or begin for the first time, they must have cards made out for •the card Index system. Their names re recorded on the record book, which la checked once a week in he printing department. If a renewal, a new expiration date goes m after the subscriber's name In he mailing galleys. If a new subscriber, a new slug is set up and in- icrted in the galleys.
