When Hearst Magazines President Cathie Black wasn't making deals and effecting change, she was keeping her eye on Hearst bread and butter as well.

Nine of the company's 13 established titles were up in ad pages, according to Publishers Information Bureau, with standouts that included newly renamed Classic American Homes [nee Colonial Homes], up 10.1% to 257.53 ad pages; Country Living's Healthy Living, up 83.6% to 293.34 pages; House Beautiful, up 8.1% to 1,026.32 pages; Marie Claire, up 11.1% to 1,339.23; and Town & Country, up 7.8% to 1,541.90.

Even Hearst's two women's service titles, which face a highly competitive field, managed to post gains. Good Housekeeping was up 2% to 1,443.5 pages, while sister Redbook was up 4.4% to 1,314.28.
