14 THE OTTAWA HERALL Thursday, Nov. 16, 1961 Pickup In Business Near End Of Year By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-Both business and consumers feel better today as 1961 goes into the home stretch. The last half of this fourth quarter could see a switch from hesitation to a forward movement. Few expect anything like a boom—in spite f all the outburst of confidence in the stock market. But most signs point to good business in the last six weeks of the year. Consumers appear in a better mood. Many apparently have decided that the recession of last year really is over. And merchants count, heavily on ] translating the Christmas spirit into good sales. They note that retail sales rose in October after a spell of caution in the early fall. Auto dealers report a pickup in sales and hope for even better as production snarls disappear. Most of the auto industry has its labor problem behind it. That usually optimistic industry is back to talking in big numbers again. Oilmen report better demand for their products than a few weeks back. The gain over a year ago is running better than 5 per cent. Industrial output is expected to rise. The September bobble will No Mafia In KG, Chief Says KANSAS CTTY (AP) - C. M. Kelley, the FBI agent who became chief of police in Kansas City Sept. 1, says he has found no evidnce crime in the city is controlled by a syndicate. "I know of no Mafia here," he said in response to a question at a civic club meeting. "My conception of the Mafia or syndicate control would be a situation where one man or a small group issued the orders and actually controlled crime. I know of no such organization." Kelley said the city's main crime problem is breaking up rings which dispose of the loot taken in burglaries and robberies. fTAeffONe .tO-o—• sfe. m — WANTADS Call CH 2-4700 Had To Wait For Service KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Carl Rowan, deputy assistant secretary of state, was refused service at a Kansas City night club for an hour Wednesday night. Then the management learned his identity. "It's not particularly embarrassing to me," Rowan said. "I've been in hundreds of incidents like This. I've been a Negro for a long time. It is disgusting, though, thai these things happen." Rowan was here to address the American Association of Land Grant Colleges and State Universities. Rowan and four companions, all white, went to the Eighty-Eight Keys after its Negro combo, led by pioneer jazz man Baby Lovett, had been recommended as one of the bes 1 shows in town. They sat at a ta ble for an hour before the management decided to serve them. then be charged off to auto strikes and hurricane damage. Increased production should mean more jobs or longer work weeks or both. The latest employment figures put them at a record for the time of the year. Unemployment totals stay sticky—and in some doubt. Critics of the government's method of estimating he number of jobless think the igure is too high. Some labor eaders have replied that the figures don't take in all those that are out of work or can find only >art time jobs. But merchants in the areas where employment is high and where personal incomes have :>een rising are counting heavily on a reported change in consumer attitudes helping sales. They contend that not only are retail sales themselves up, but the rate of saving appears to be dropping after a rise during the worrisome months of the recession and during the uncertain period of the recovery. Government figures estimating that farm income this year will be a billion dollars higher than last year also hearten both the merchants serving them and the makers of farm equipment and supplies. Many other manufactures are looking for increased government spending to jack up their sales in the weeks and months ahead. The news from Washington continues to forecast more spending, if anything, than first projected. Business itself has been increasing its spending. This shows m the higher inventory total. Uusually this reflects a rise in confidence along with hard orders requiring more materials.

Kansas City Bus Drivers Back On Job KANSAS CITY (AP) — Transit buses rolled again in Kansas City today after striking workers returned to their jobs in compliance with a court order and as technical employes of the state. Kansas City Transit Inc. was shut down two days. Gov. John M- Dalton seized it under a Missouri law especially designed to stop or prevent strikes against public utilities. The walkout idled 817 bus drivers and mechanics and 401 buses which normally provide about two-thirds of the public transportation in the metropolitan area. About the only effect was heavier than normal downtown automobile traffic. The state will continue to control the company until it reaches agreement on a new contract with Local 1287 of the Amalgamated Association of Street Electric Railway and Motor Coach Employes. The union asked a wage increase of 38 cents an hour plus fringe benefits. The company said the fringe benefits would push the total package to 86 cents an hour. Base pay under the old contract is $2.27 an hour for drivers and $2.45 for Class A mechanics. Still on file is a union petition asking the federal courts to find unconstitutional the 1947 King- Thompson Act and set aside Gov. Dalton's application of it. It provides for seizure when a strike threatens the public safety and convenience. Workers are required to return to their jobs, under penalty of $10,000 fines each day against their union and $1,000 a day against its officers. Name Molotov Replacement VIENNA, Austria (AP) - The Soviet Union today appointed Alexander I. Alexandrov to replace former Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov temporarily at the East-West International Atomic Energy Agency. This was regarded as a strong indication that Molotov would not return to Vienna. He was Soviet IAEA representative until his denunciation by Soviet Premier Khrushchev at the Moscow Communist party congress. He returned to Moscow Sunday. The Soviets told the agency Alexandrov would head the Soviet mission for the time being. He had been Molotov's deputy since July 1960. By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP)-The Kennedy administration is reported to have decided to go ahead with some of Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor's recommendations for strengthening pro-Western South Viet Nam against a growing Communist onslaught. "We're beginning to get off the ground," a high official told a reporter. Secrecy still obscures details of what Taylor recommended to President Kennedy after return ing two weeks ago from a fact- finding mission to Southeast Asia. Taylor is Kennedy's personal military adviser. Reports from South Viet Nam indicated a number of actions already may have begun. U.S. Air Force jets have been carrying out aerial photographic n connaissance. The Air Force has been reported shuttling planeloads of supplies from the Philippines to airfields near Saigon The supplies were said to include helicoters capable of carrying troops and mounting guns for low-level strafing. There also have been reports that the Air Force is assigning several officers and men to giv added instruction to the smal Vietnamese air force. Some members of the Taylo: mission are known to have fel Vietnamese air power wasn't being used to its fullest advantage even though it included only abou a dozen single engine propeller driven fighter planes and a hand ful of elderly transport aircraft. To bolster this small force, i was understood a few World War II vintage B26 bombers were being assigned to the Vietnamese Pentagon officials who hav talked with members of the Tay lor mission received an impres sion of something less than op timism about prospects for pull ing Viet Nam out of the fire. There was a feeling in wmt 'entagon quarters that the mif ion of the U.S. Military Advisory Group in Viet Nam should b« hanged, that fewer members rf he group should stay in Saigon nd more get out in the country a work alongside the troops and ocal officials at the* lowest pos- ible level.
