   I received a message from a friend at Kodak this morning
telling me that Kodak has discontinued all B&W paper, of all
types in all sizes, effective now. Sales will continue until
present stocks are exhausted, estimated at six months. The
reason is simply loss of market. The market has been
shrinking by an average of 25% a year for the last couple of
years. Kodak management is only doing what it must to
protect its stockholders.
   They will continue to make B&W film and chemicals for B&W
film and paper and color materials.
   My source asked not to be identified but is what the
press calls a highly reliable source.
