 DAILY NEWS SCORES MAJOR CIRCULATION GAINS
 NEW YORK, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Daily News posted a dramatic


increase in daily and Sunday circulation for the latest six-month period, according to figures released by the Audit Bureau of Circulation. The News was the only New York tabloid to achieve year- over-year circulation gains during the period.
 Despite the weak economy, The News' daily circulation registered a gain to 777,129, in the period from April to September 1992, up 18,061 over the year before, according to the ABC publisher's statement.
 The gain puts The News back in first place among New York tabloids. Newsday, which had a lead of about 2,000 papers in 1991, saw its combined Long Island and New York circulation slip 4,281 to 758,358.
 The New York Post, meanwhile, plunged 53,408 copies to 437,918.
 "As these gains show, New York's Hometown Paper just keeps getting stronger as we rebound from a couple of tough years," said James Willse, the Daily News' editor and publisher.
 On Sunday, The News increased its first-place lead, with circulation rising to 969,341, up 61,788 from a year ago. Newsday dropped 29,208 to 844,618.
 The Post does not publish Sundays. Its Saturday circulation dropped 17,905 to 365,913.
