ono K 01* nth ttMMIMV, OCT. l», M*, AlOONA, IOWA ivance Tom Burt to Des Homes for 0. I am retired, have an income of $6,000 a year. I'd lid* your advice on hew to incroaM it. I have $10,000 In 6 3/1 par cent bond*, $5 bank •hare*, MO there* of Arvin Industrie*, 200 there* of a mutual fund end $70,000 in certificate* of depotit in bank*. A. It looks to me like about half your income may be coming from the $70,000 in Certificates of Deposits. I'd guess your return here is about 5%. It would be hard to increase your income without increasing your risk quite a bit. I would however, talk with your broker, and see if he can suggest any bonds which might give you a higher return or some Convertible Preferreds that would do the same thing. I'd also take a look at those 200 shares in your unnames Mutual Fund. It's possible that money could be shifted into a good security that would give you a higher rate of return. Q. We ere in our 70*s, living on e pension. We have $6,000 in savings end will receive $8,000 from the salt of property. My husband want* to give $1,000 to each of our five children. I don't see why we should give the money to them now. A. 1 don't cither. You'll be more independent, and feel more independent if you have $14,000 in savings .That $5,000 should' bring you $16 or $17 a month to allow you some small luxuries. You've indicated no need on the part of your children. Your children will likely enjoy much more seeing the sense of security and independence this money gives you, and when it eventually comes to them •they will enjoy it much more when they are .secure in the knowledge that it first served the purpose of taking care'>, of their father and mother;? Q. I am a doctor and am about to retire. I'm considering investing in a mutual fund, but don't know whet would ,be;a good one. 1 don't know the difference between "load" and "un-load" funds and am concerned about the mission fees by the federal •ft* . government, Can you give me Mm* advice? A. Mutual funds offer a good way for investing to people who feel they lack the knowledge and judgment to make good selections of stocks themselves. As to what would be good ones, I suggest you check Arthur Wiesenberger's book, "Investment Companies," at your local library. This will give you an idea of what fund would be best to meet your needs. I make it a policy not •to recommend specific mutual funds. The difference between the "load' and "no-load" funds is that the "load" funds charge a sales commission of up to 8Vfe per cent. The "no- load" funds charge no such commission. Both types of funds have an administrative fee usually charged on the total value of the fund likeiy to be in the area of Ms % per year of that value. The load funds are particularly under government investigation. There is a feeling in some quarters that their sales charge, being the highest for any kind of stock sale, other than for the new issues of stocks, has produced an excessive amount of sales effort.
