J Says Iowa Income lags Behind Level For U.S. According to Iowa Business Digest, monthly publication of the University of Iowa, "average personal income in Iowa is currently lagging about 20 percent BELOW the U.S. level." To add further distress to the present outlook, the gap is steadily widening between economic indexes of state and nation, based on six items which make Up the barometer that reflects changes in income. Only • cash farm income is now advancing at a faster rate in Iowa than in the nation and that's due to the fact Iowa's cash farm income is up eight percent over the same period a year ago. In the other five trade indexes, which include manufacturing payrolls, bank debits, department store sales, electric power production and value of construction contracts, Iowa is sagging behind badly. Manufacturing payrolls and bank debits have t shown, a very slight increase over a year ago, but large increase elsewhere in the U.S. have minimized Iowa's gains. Building contracts have dipped 15 percent, according to a comparison between the first quarters of 1956 and 1957, a fact that adds to the current downward trend of personal income. These facts from the Iowa Business Digest tend to prove more than ever that high wages and enormous amounts of construction work in some areas of the country give a somewhat falsely rosy look to the "over-all financial picture, especially when facts prove otherwise. Horace Greeley'may have been right—and unless cash equal- ization of some kind can be a reality all over the U.S., he may really stand as the greatest forecaster of all times.
