The study elbows businessmen expect to increase spending for new plan and equipment by 2.7 per cent this year to $81.8 billion, smallest rise in a decade end a sharp falloff from last year's 5.5-per-cemt boost. Nixon .attempted to perk up business investment earlier this year by offering industry a $3- bMionita-year tax break through faster tax writeoffs for depreciating equipment and machinery. He sitdli hasn't set a date for putting 1)he plan into effect, but he apparently figured the very 'announcement of the proposal would produce an upturn in business investment. The President said the pro- Credit where credit is duel Every farmer or rancher deserves a dependable source of credit like any other businessman. This is the basis on which the Production Credit Association was founded nearly forty years ago. How do we feel today? Exactly the same way.

Actor-Novelist 'Shameless When New Book Concerned By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — In a book store of any major city, the following dialogue might occur: "Mr. Tryon, could I have your autograph?" "Sure, you bet—if you buy a book." Novelist Thomas Tryon, also known .as actor Tom Tryon, has been crisscrossing the country in the former guise, sailing his new book, "The Other." "I'm absolutely shameless," he admits, "I'll walk into a book store and ask .if they have "The Ottar.' If the answer is no, I whip out my reviews "and tell them how they can order it. "If people want autographs in stores, I'll give them—on the book, that is. I sold 400 copies in one store on an autographing party." The muscular actor-author is enjoying the euphoria of a well- received first novel. "The Other" went !nto a sec- ond printing before publication, iand 20tth Century-Fox bought the screen rights. The movie writer: Tom—Sorry, Thomas Tryon.. As to Ma acting career: "I<et it wait, baby—I could care less." Tryon came to his literary success by a curious route. His only exposure to literature was an English novel course at Yale which he suspects was designed to tutn sttidents off—"typical of the caliber of education at Yale." His rugged good looks helped him. carve out a successful career as an actor in television and films, his most noted role being the lead in "The Cardinal." "I suppose I should say I loved doing "The Cardinal,'" he remarks, "but I didn't." In fact, most of his performances gave him little pleasure, with the exception of a Disney film, "Moon Pilot," one of his few Chances to perform comedy. YOU ALWAYS SAVE AT 5-Foot Size .

When he reported for his usual preproducition physical required for insurance purposes, ihe doctor detected a lung in- 'ectton which precluded the film. "The studio flhoughit I was mialing<eirinig," said Tryon. The >ictuire was made and was so «td it was never released 1 ." The experience prompted Tryon to start writing. He penned a Hollywood story that failed. Then he turned to a macabre tale of murder arid evil lappeninig® amid a Connecticut family in the 1930s.
