Indian ambassador to the United Nations, and his wife have moved out of their $l,600-a-month 10-room apartment—at least for the moment.

"I'm being victimized," said the. landlady, Betty Roberts, adding that she is writing to President Kennedy about it. WICHITA (AP)-Wilbur J. Gib son, 46, was killed by the accidental discharge of his .22 rifle Monday as he was unloading his station wagon on returning from a hunting trip. The bullet hit him in the face.

"They wouldn't cooperate. Madame Jha said she couldn't have any noise and refused to let anyone through the premises. It was necessary to go through there to do the work," Mrs. Roberts said. Said Madama Jha: "I would have had to give a plumber my bedroom for a whole day. I would not even have been allowed to go to my own bathroom." The Jhas moved out of the apartment last Thursday night and into nearby, plush hostelry.

By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-The handicappers already are busy sizing up how the economy is going to run the course next year—and the differences in opinion should make it a good horse race. Almost all of the economists, government and private, and a majority of businessmen, seem confident it will be a fast track if the Berlin storm clouds blow over. The odds favor records being broken—but by just how much that's where the experts differ. The guessing covers such things as price trends, industrial produc tion, total output of goods and services, and a long list of pros pects for individual industries. Predictions by the President's Council of Economic Advisers are the highest. They put 1962's tola! output at better than $570 billion and 1963's at a whopping $620 bil This compares with this year's expected final figure o $520 billion and 1960's relatively modest $503.5 billion. The views of the business Coun cil, made up of some 100 heads of the biggest corporations, are a on the Boeing Supports Sanla Fe Bui SEATTLE (AP)—An official of the Boeing Co. testified Monday in support of the Santa Fe's bid for control of the Western Pacific Railroad. L. H. Coons, traffic manager of Boeing's aero space division, appeared at a hearing being conducted by the Interstate Commerce Commission. The Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific Railroad are bidding for Western Pacific. The hearing started in San Francisco and has been moving around the Northwest. Portland is next. bit more optimistic side. At the professional level are two pooling of minds this week: 1. The annual get-together of the National Association of Busi- Economists in Chicago. ness Their president, Dr. George Cline Smith, a senior partner of MacKay-Shields Associated, New York, says the standard forecast is for total output to hit a $570 billion annual rate by the end of 1962. But if it is to climb steeply after that, he says that consumers will have to spend more, and businessmen invest more in new plant and equipment. 2. The annual polling of economists by the F. W. Dodge Corporation, construction news and marketing specialists. There is considerable spread this time in their views. But the average ;uess of the 316 economists puts he national output, Gross National Product, at $565 billion by the end of 1962. The average guess on the Federal Reserve Index of Industrial Production is a record high of 122 by December 1962, compared with 112 this September. The 1957 average equals 100. Nearly all of the 316 see con sumer and wholesale prices creeping higher in 1962. Many expect inflation to be more of a problem next year. Blamed are defense spending, domestic politics, the rising cost of services, and the stimulus of the uptrend in i general business activity. Opinions of the individual economists range between these extremes: 1. "The 1962 economic outlook is strictly A-OK. More people will have more money with which to buy more products than ever before in history." 2. "There is nothing in the cards to indicate that business activity in 1962 will reach boom levels. First, the American consumer is, well stocked and bored to boot with the unimaginative goods being offered. Second, the eavy excess capacity hanging ver a number of important American industries rules out a apital expenditure spurt next ear or the year after. Finally, $5-billion, or even a $10-billion, ncrease in defense spending cer- ainly will add to the demand iressures but stepped-up Federal nrtlays will be largely lost in our ast economy." The 316 economists themselves ange widely: 51 are from finan- ial and insurance organizations, 78 from manufacturing and oth- business firms, 37 from col- eges and universities, 6 from overnment, and 44 from consult- ng firms or trade and research rganizations.
