Back-Page Jumps   


Congratulations to the McClatchy papers that are jumping page-one stories onto the back page of the section (Drop Cap, August/September). It is certainly a boon to readers.

The Louisville, Kentucky, newspapers the Courier-Journal and the Louisville Times had been doing this for several years when I arrived there as a reporter in 1949. Readers loved it, and often commented on how convenient it was. The back page of the first section carried a quarter-page ad in lower right. The rest of the page was reserved for page-one jumps.

This lasted into the 1960s or '70s, when budgets were tightened and the practice was discontinued.
