(liwi) 0. I have eight shares of UMC Industries and two shares of Thlokol. Also I bought one share of American telephone A Telegraph a long time ago which has now become six shares. In addition, my mother gave me 44 shares of AT&T, 14 shares of General Motors A U shares of Phil• adelphia Electric. I expect to receive some money in the next' year and would like to know what to buy to round out my portfolio • something that would give me a dividend check each month. A. If, when you are ready to buy, prices are about the same as they are now, 1 suggest you consider buying shares in a good electric util- ity.or in a good oil company : Both of thcia classes of stocks have good giowth rates and are favorably priced right now. 0. A retired person well along in years, I would like your opinion on Consolidated Edison of New York, Columbia Gas System and American Telephone A Telegraph, which I recently purchased. I am more concerned about ATAT because, if I understand the recent ruling of the Federal Trade Commission, the company is restricted in the earnings it can have in the future. Should I hold it for the long pull? •Frigidaire • Maytag •Monarch SALES & SERVICE BEED HARDWARE & APPLIANCE Titonka, Iowa Phone 928-2127 IT'S TIME FOR YOUR PRE-WINTER CHECK-UP POLAR Permanent ANTI-FREEZE WITH RUST INHIBITOR — NONE BETTER — Tested and Approved by State Bureau of Inspection and Licensing 50-50 Mix Protects to 34 Below Zero $ 1.59 GALLON IN YOUR OWN CONTAINER SEE US FOR THE NEW United C.

VIKING OIL CO. PHONE 2M-37N A. Consolidated Edison and Columbia Gas Systems are both excellent companies for a retired person who wants to benefit from the better* than-5-per cent yield each provides. . I don't think you should be concerned about your hold' ings in AT&T. It is true that the FTC has issued an order setting the limit on the rate that the company will be able to earn on one part of its business. This order is almost certain to be contested in the courts. Even if the Commission's rate-limiting order should eventually be upheld, its effect would be to restrict but not stop the growth of the company. AT&T is a very vital part of the country's economic and communication life. 1 have confidence that the people of this country will see that good sense prevails and that this company is kept healthy so it can continue to serve us wl'tli speed and growing efficiency. While AT&T may not be the darling of investors for some years, I anticipate that the present dividend rate will be continued and, as time goes on, increased. 0. How can I invest in order to hive • fixed income from dividends plus capital, if necessary • the object being to consume most of the* capital investment in 20 years? A. If you were simply to deposit $100 a month in a savings account where it earned a 4 per cent dividend compounded annually, at the end of 20 years you would be able to withdraw $1,800 a year for 20 years, as compared with the $1,200 you deposited annually, and still have $27,822 in the bank .at the end of that period. To achieve results which possibly could more than double this performance, you could invest the same amount each month in high-quality stocks. Right now 1 would suggest one or more of our good utilities or oil companies, or other top-quality industrial concerns which your broker might help you select. If you do not want to do your own choosing of stocks, you could arrange a regular investment program through a mutual fund. You can also arrange to make regular withdrawals from such a fund which will consist of both earnings and capital. guests met at the home of Mrs. Francis ToHne last Friday afternoon tot her Circle of the First BaptiM Church.
