FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1968 Predict Good Business Will Continue In '69 B.v ED DE MUCH AP Busiitcss Writer CHICAGO (AP) Eight national leaders of finance and industry agreed Thursday that the first half of 1969 will continue to reflect the advanced pace of business in the last half of this year. They gave their opinions at a luncheon given by the First National Bank of Chicago. The views included: Philip D. Clock Jr.. chairman Inland Steel Co.: "Total steel consumption in the first half of 1969 can be expected to equal this year's figure." Ben \V. Ileineman, president Northwest Industries Inc.: "I believe that 1969 will be a year of recovery for railroads in which they will extend 1968's improvement over 1967's unfavorable results, but in which they will fall short of achieving the record results of 1966." William Hovvlett, board chairman.

Metealf, board | chairman, Sears. Roebuck and J Co.: "This has been a very good I year for retail business. Sales increased briskly in the first half and are continuing at very high levels. I feel confident that retailers have another good season ahead, although we may have to work a little harder in 1969 to keep on setting records." John K. Swoaringen, board chairman. Standard Oil Co. of Indiana: "The prospect for the petroleum industry in the first half of 1969 is good. How well the domestic industry performs will depend to a considerable extent on how will the economy performs, but at this point, we expect a further improvement in the industry's earnings." Homer J. Livingston, board chairman. First National Bank of Chicago: "I believe business in the first half of 1969 will be good. However.
