Over Supply of Problems By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)—Businessmen in the front line of this nation's push for more foreign trade and with investments at stake in the cold war showdown are huddling here today with one thing for sure in over supply—problems. Some 1900 executives involved in U.S. exporting, importing and foreign investment are tackling issues raised by the new American trade expansion law, touchy govern ment j busi ness relations,, taxation of foreign income, expropriation of U.S. property overseas, and the Common Market's competitive challenge. Added to the pile of uncertainties are the many courses the U.S. blockade of Cuba might take. | These range from shooting war : down lo passing incident. j ' In open sessions of the 49th Na: tional Foreign' Trade Convention! I and in private talks, U.S. business j ! leaders, along with government j officials, financiers and educa- j : tors are trying to assess what i 1 each possible outcome of the j I blockade could mean to the U.S.! ; trade with other lands. j A number, of the speeches pre- I pared for delivery at the meeting i have been revised, convention of- i ficials say. Last .minute reappraisals 'are still the order of the day. Just by itself the blockade jolts a lot of thinking about business prospects, especially foreign trade.

Change is now a fact, even if how much of a change is still tq be learned. All the old problems remain- just accented a bit more. The U.S. trade expansion act and the challenge of the European Common Market are much on the minrJs of the businessmen at the meeting. The United States is now in position to bargain on lowering trade barriers such as tariffs and quotas. At the meeting here are men whose companies stand to gain in Western Europe, Japan and other nations will let in more American goods on terms more competitive with their own products than now. Others may suffer if the bargaining means lower American tariffs on foreign goods invading their fields. And beyond this is the challenge in world markets of the growing industrial power of the European Common Market, with which the United States seeks to coime to terms. The future of American investments abroad is due or. an ap^ praisal in light of today's developments, both in Washington's worry about the deficit in the balance of payments and in the effects of the heating up of the cold war. Government officials are on hand to tell the delegates they must export more to help pare the excess outflow of Yankee dollars over return flow. Some of the businessmen here are known to feel the government could do more if it helped raise productivity in this country and if it protected the dollar more by holding U.S Treasury spending closer in line with tax receipts'. Complexites of the new tax regulations also are in for close scrutiny. And the businessmen here would like an inkling as to what form the promised tax cut; may take next year. Problems—there's no lack of them—and talking them over could help. The first chest you can change as fast as you change your mind! Lane's Matchmaker with interchangeable front panels.

The sharp step-up from the Ipril-June rate of $872 million was ttributed largely to a quick reversal of the large flow of capital from Canada that helped reduce the U.S. payments deficit earlier in the year. Although Treasury officials had said there was a third-quarter increase in the deficit, the first accounting came today in a report issued by the Federal Reserve Board, The lead article in the October Federal Reserve Rulletin said the deficit rate in the first nine months of the year was about $1. 8 billion, based on preliminary estimates.
