Business Pushes Plans To Combat Any Disaster By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) —While the West Coast adds up the millions of dollars of damage from hurricane winds and torrential rains, business firms in all parts of the nation are pushing plans for reducing the impact of major disasters. The Atlantic and Gulf coasts also know th e staggering toll that hurricanes can take. The interior states know the fury of cyclones and tornadoes. Any city, any plant might face fh • '''..aster of fire, flood or explosion. Most firms are insured against such loss. But often the disaster can threaten the very life of the company. Many companies could not survive without their records, even if insured on property loss. And since th c Be crisis of 1961—now being heated up again along with Cuba—the possibility of nuclear attack has spurred new ; efforts by companies, industries, It happened 100 YEARS ago The oldest incorporated trade association in the country, the United States Brewers Association, was organized in 1862 ... the same year that IN KANSAS, glad enthusiasm greeted the 90,000-acre Congressional grant for a state agricultural college—a historic step toward our state's bountiful future. What more fitting toast than golden beer, itself such an important product of the golden grains of Kansas! For then, as now, beer was Kansas' traditional beverage of moderation. Beer not only still provides enjoyment for Kansans, but more than 30 million dollars in payroll and a like amount in capital investment—as well as a profitable market for our farmers and other suppliers to the Brewing Industry. TODAY, in its centennial year, the United States Brewers Association still works constantly to assure maintenance of high standards of quality and propriety wherever beer and ale are served. Khnsas Division UNITED STATES : t> BREWERS ASSOCIATION, INC. and groups to prepare (or disaster even though expecting it won't happen. The Financial Executives Institute, a group of top fiscal officers of the nation's corporations, reports its special Panel on Policies and Plans for Major Disaster has drawn up guidelines applicable both to nuclear or peacetime ca- tastrophies. The panel of corporate officials I "tudied and coordinated plans and | preparations of companies, in the fields of aircraft, banking, manufacturing, metals, petroleum, life insurance and public utilities. The study advises putting responsibility for planning, developing r.ncl ininlcmentng the disaster program on a single high-level executive. Part of his duties is knowing the national plan worked out by military and federal agencies and liaison with Civil Defense in the community. A company should plan for con- tinuitv ot' management, in case disaster removed key men. Many companies arc drawing up an emergency executive succession list. Th c panel warns against letting employes get the idea such a list applies to normal advancement programs. It also adds that keeping contact with retired em- ployes is a good idea, just in case. The panel urges revision of the accepted plant safety programs, with an eye to fitting them to major or regional disasters as well as to plant crises. Emergency repair plans should be,, drawn up, with named em- ployes given definite tasks for restoring electric power, communications, water, gr.s, sewerage, buildings and equipment. Protecting vital records runs a wide gamut. Some companies store records at a distance. j Others duplicate them and disperse copies in branch offices. But the panel urges a close look at records to choose only the truly vital for disaster control prograsm.

Sinatra Optimistic About Renaissance By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Those hoping for a Hollywood renaissance get some encouraging words from Frank Sinatra: "This town is far from dead." It*s not all talk with Sinatra. He is the -head of a growing enterprise that is branching into several entertainment fields. But his rimary interest is motion pic- ures. This is still a 'good business," ie commented. "It is undergoing ome changes, but it is going to urvive. And Hollywood is going o come back. "I have no plans to shoot ibroad. I want to stay here, where the money is. And I think ther producers are coming to hat same conclusion._ You don't ave money in the long run by hooting overseas. The know-how f Hollywood crews makes film- ng more sensible here." Sinatra has a mania for moving hings along. Long rehearsals and multiple takes ar e for the birds, lence he could never tolerate the iisurely pace of continental filming. "Those three-hour lunches they ake over there are ridiculous," ie said. Sinatra had dabbled in co-production, but last year he- set up his own company, Essex, on a full-time basis. The company made "X15," a moderate success, then "Sergeants Three," panned by the critics but loved by the pulblic. Sinatra Has "The Manchurian Candidate" coming into release and. is now making "Com e Blow Your Horn" in partnership with Paramount. He has other properties in preparation, and all look as if they will be Hollywood- based.

Tony Moves Cafe To Please Drivers GRANTHAM, England (AP)—A 'ine new highway curves round the edge of Grantham, but long- distance truck drivers ignore the bypass and continue to clog the :own's narrow main street. Investigating officials found they like to eat at Tony's Cafe where a plate of eggs, chips and tomatoes sells for 3 shillings—42 cents. "I'd rather get stuck in any raffle jam than miss a good fry- up at Tony's," said John Welsh. 'Most of the lads think the same." The authorities have persuaded Tony to move his cafe to a site on the highway. There are 333 places in the United States with 50,000 or more inhabitants, according to the 1960 census. Townspeople Chase Bandit DEARBORN, Mo. (AP)—The First State Bank of Dearborn was robbed of $3,200 in currency and $1,200 in checks Monday by a gunman who escaped despite a chase by townspeople. The bandit forced a customer o sit under a counter, and had two bank employes put the money into paper sacks. He said "Hi" to another customer who entered just as the gunman was walking out. The man drove south out of town. Mrs. John Eskridge and Mr. and Mrs. Jim Earson, standing by their parked cars, gave chase when they learned of the holdup. Mrs. Eskridge, leading the pursuit, said she topped a hill and had to swerve to miss the ban- Page 8 Garden City Telegram Tuesday, October 16, 1962 dit's car, parked by another car in which another man and woman were sitting. Before Mrs. Eskridge could turn around, the two men sped west in one car and the woman drove east in the other. The bandit's car, found 30 minutes later four miles south of Dearborn, had been rented in Kansas-City, officers said. Dearborn is about 16 miles south of St. Joseph. new 5UPDNT1 LmiW WALL PAINT Even if you've-never held a brush or roller 'before, you can paint a room to be proud of with amazing new "Lucite."
