Amid accusations that it violated minimum-wage and overtime laws, magazine publisher Conde Nast has canceled its internship program, a spokesman confirmed Wednesday. Two former interns sued Conde Nast, publisher of magazines that include the New Yorker and Vogue, in June accusing their former employer of failing to pay them minimum wage at their summer jobs. The lawsuit, filed in New York, follows recent legal action by other interns suing media companies for similar violations.

It's easy to say that unpaid or barely-paid interns at Conde Nast magazines or other companies shouldn't take the job if they don't like the conditions, and that they certainly shouldn't turn around and sue over it. But that take on a recent lawsuit against the publishing company - and on Conde Nast's decision not to offer any more internships, paid or otherwise - overlooks the fact that the rule on what an internship is, and what the young interns...

The world watched in fascination when eight people emerged intact after two years sealed off in Biosphere II. Yet here in Manhattan, it seems perfectly normal that armies of skinny women wearing regulation black survive year upon year sealed off from reality at 350 Madison Ave., the command post of Conde Nast and its 13 magazines. Inside 350 is the beating heart of sophistication. Like the magazines themselves, the people who work there are chic yet predictable.

Regarding Wilson Low's suggestion on including more information on first-class travel ("Rich Man, Poor Man," Letters, June 11): If we had just won the lottery or even if we were in our 80s and had never traveled, we would not be receptive to $5,000 each to fly first class to Europe. The type of travel that he espouses is completely out of reach for most of us. He should stick to Conde Nast. CHARLES JONES Calabasas

Re "The gloss is off the magazine industry," Oct. 6 How sad to read that Gourmet magazine was pruned by its parent company, Conde Nast. In the current corporate model, when a division or product line struggles, instead of rallying the business acumen needed to fix it, the company lops off that division or product. In doing so, it fails its employees; it fails its customers; it fails the history and tradition of the products we use; it fails to shepherd excellence. Conglomerate giants, with their witless slash-and-burn methods, have proved themselves too big not to fail.
