Striker-Produced Sunday Newspaper Makes Debut: The Detroit Sunday Journal, produced by workers striking the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, made its first appearance this weekend. It carried local and state news and classified ads in a 48-page tabloid. Its newsstand price was 60 cents. The six striking unions hope their paper will pressure the dailies to settle the strike, now in its fifth month. The Journal’s initial press run was expected to be 300,000 papers, which would make it Michigan’s second-largest Sunday paper after the Detroit News and Free Press, which regularly run a combined edition. The papers have reported a circulation during the strike of about 1 million, which the unions dispute as too high. The Sunday edition of the Detroit News and Free Press costs $1.50.
