. x "i-" IS Palm Beac h Post-Times, Saturday, Nov. 16, 19liS Excesses Feared In Speculative New Mutual Funds BY .1. A. LIVINGSTON Mrlvin A. Heftier, a Philadelphia certified puhlic accountant, is bothered. He has receiver! a prospectus from Afuture I-'und, Inc., a no-load mutual lund organized in April. The investment objective is "appreciation ol capital." lift-Her wonders il it's an indication ol i ommon slock fever. Aluture Fund is an out growth of an investment club, whose members were associ ated with the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Kdward Asher Wilson, director of purchases at the Hospital, is piesident. At present, Richard Carlisle McKenie Jr., who had been controller at the U. of V. Hospital, is the only fulltimc officer. And the prospectus notes nunc of the officers or directors had prev iously made his livelihood as a investor. Mc Kenie and Wilson used their middle names to christen the firm which manages the portfolio Carlisle-Asher Management Co. Wilson is its president, McKen.ic its vice-president and treasurer. Soon Carlisle-Asher will take on a comptroller. He'll be the second lull-time officer. Afuture Fund was founded on faith: America will prosper. Wilson and McKenzie look for young and growing companies which have not won widespread acceptance by investors. Therefore, their stocks sell at low reasonable price-earnings ratios. Since March future's net asset value has increased more than 40 per cent. McKenzie says: "We're optimistic. If we weren't, we wouldn't have started a fund." Such optimism disturbs Heftier. And he has company. The weekly staff letter of the David L. Babson Co., investment counsel, makes these observations about mutual funds: 1. When the lyf7-r8 recession failed to "snowball into a major depression," people stopped worrying about 1929. They decided that inflation, not deflation, was the trend to guard against. This inspired faith in common stocks. Interest in mutual funds increased. Soon new funds with spectacular short-term results captured public fancy. 2. Older funds found it "increasingly difficult to sell shares in competition with new 'go-go' funds." They set up funds of their own to buy "what are euphemistically called 'special situations." .1. Life and casualty insurance companies boarded the bandwagon by launching their own funds or acquiring existing ones. And brokerage firms also started funds; "principally of the highly speculative type. Neither they nor buyers have been deterred by a potentially serious conflict of interest." The broker as an advisor to the fund derives commissions on purchases and sales of securities for the fund. 4. An excellent long term investment has been contorted into a speculative vehicle. In the bear markets of 1949 and 1962. mutual fund shareholders did not dump shares. They were a steadying influence in Wall Street. Many new mutual fund buyers are not "true investors." Their purpose is to "buy something that is going up." They try to pick the fund "best able to speculate, trade. and gamble with their money." Babson fears that in a declining market, shareholders "may redeem shares as impulsively as they bought them." Instead of being a stabilizing influence in Wall Street, they'll deepen a decline. Thus new funds and new investors could make a dangerous combination in Wall Street. And Heftier agrees. He asks: "Isn't it time to warn people about these excesses"" "'Ki' Volume Breaks Mark On Mart s Late Spurt II alt Street Shares In Selected Mutual Fund Favored As Yule Gift For Child refused, however, to comment on the reports Saigon soon may send delegation to the French capital.

It keeps the engine alive and running by drawing gas from the tank and rli livering it to the carburetor, as needed. When il grows weak in pressure, it cannot supply sufficient fuel, and the resulting lean mixture brings on engine headaches. In summer, this condition promotes vapor lock. In winter, it causes hard starling, stalling and missing. Normally, weak pump action is due to wear on one or more parts, but sometimes it's caused by leakage at the diaphragm or filter bowl. In the latter case, looseness or a defective gasket is usually at fault. Suppose fuel starvation is the symptom, but a pressure test shows thai Ihe pump is operating properly'.'

Reactor Fuel Plant Proposed WASHINGTON (AP) - Allied Chemical Nuclear Pro-duds, Inc., has applied fo the Atomic Energy Commission for authority to build a plant near Barnwell, S.C., that would reprocess irradiated reactor fuel elements. The Morristown, N.J., firm said the proposed plant would be built on a l,7;i(l-ucre site on property which is now a pari of the AKC's Savannah River Plant. The proposal calls for transfer of the site to Barnwell County which, in turn, would sell or lease it to Allied Chemical. The plant would be used to recover uranium plutonium and neptunium from fuel elements previously irradiated in reactors. The recovered material can be reused in fabrication of new fuel elements.

I.OEB NEW YORK -What to give the children or grandchildren for Christmas'.' It seems early, but merchants keep advancing the season. Soon I expect Santa Claus lo appear right after Labor Day. Ciifts of toys for children should be economical. They cannot be expected to know the cost in money of expensive items. There is much to be said for making securities the principal gift. Their value can be expected to grow. The tax savings can be impressive. (Jiffs of real property such as money or securities do involve legal problems which a little care can avoid. My experience has been that clients will ask for something very exotic and out of the nex'. world in the way of a slock gift for a child. Something small that will be big, and something cheap that will be worth a fortune when the child is 21. I always advise against this. The odds against such a choice that makes good are very long. Shifts generally are kept minimal in a minor's account. My advice is to buy funds. This way you get the management, diversification and turnover difficult to get otherwise for a minor. Look over the list of open-and-closed-end funds. Look over the load and no-load issues. Look over the open market funds that sell at discounts and premiums. These factors of cost should be considered, but the primary considerations are the suitability and quality. You arc planning for the long term, 'file type of holdings and the character of the management are all important. Short time, so-called "perfor mance" is completely meaningless. Five-year records have some validity. Buy into a fund where, as management is changed over Ihe year s, if is likely to be a continuation of the kind you select now. I would buy investment quality of all. As the years go by, you can diversify by adding a growth-oriented fund, a special situations fund, and possibly a fund specializing in unregistered securities. Always star! with quality and keep the quality proportion high. V,o lo a New York Slock K'x-change member firm that handles all and every type of fund and make your selection. You should investigate, pick and choose, and be a buyer and nol have something sold to you. The legal aspects arc very important. They vary in different stat(s. Securities should never be registered in Ihe name of a minor, (iuardians appointed by a court, and living Irusls, can be costly. The Association of Stock Exchange Firms has been working to get the states to adopl a model law titled "The Uniform (Jilt to Minors Act." The association publishes a booklet on Ihe subject that should be available al any NYSE member firm office. However, il is wise uWi- Nov. Dc. i fMAMJ 950 m 900 S50 too 750 Mon.

District Manai;er Wl'BSocial Security Office Q. Are any changes going to be made in the amounts Medicare patients have to pay under hospital insurance? A. Yes, there will he some changes in the hospital insurance part of Medicare lor benefit periods that begin January 1, 19 or later. The Medicare law provides that the various dollar amounts for which the patient is responsible under hospital insurance he reviewed annually. These dollar amounts include the first $1(1 of hospital charges and the different per-day amounts after certain periods of care in hospitals and extended care facilities. I nder the law, if the review shows that hospital costs have changed significantly, these amounts are adjusted for the following year. The IWH review has been completed, and the following changes have been announced. If you enter a hospital and start a new benefit period in I'm, Medicare hospital insurance pays the cost of all co vered services except as shown below: For the first 0 days in the hospital all hut the first $41. Kor the 61st through fWlth day in the hospital all but $11 a day. For Lifetime Reserve days used all hut i 'i a day. For the 21st through IIHIth day in an extended care facility all but $5.5(1 a day. Q. Are there any special provisions in Ihe Medicare law whkh pertain to the payment of the costs of blood? A. Yes, costs of blood and packed red hlood cells are covered under both the hospital insurance and the medical insurance parts of Medicare. If you are hospitalized, your hospital insurance w ill pay for the cost of all the hlood you need except the first three pints in each benefit period. If you are enrolled for medical Insurance, it will help pay for the costs of all the hlood you receive outside the hospital except the first three pints in each calendar year. (Medical insurance pays X0 percent of blood costs after you have met the $50 annual deductible.) These are separate rules which operate independently ol each other. For example, if the patient receives hlood under both hospital and medical insurance, Medicare cannot pay for the first three pints of hlood under either program. Some people are able to arrange for replacement of these first three pints of blood to avoid having to pay for them. There are two ways this can be done. First, the patient may arrange for replacement by a friend or relative, or he may be a member of a blood donor group that will replace these first three, pints for him. Secondly, and this Is often overlooked, one of the patient's children (or son In-law or daughter-in-law) may belong to a blood replacement plan that Includes the patient as a beneficiary. In this case, the patient would eligible for blood on the basis of the child's membership. In almost all blood donor plans, blood replacement credit can be arranged anywhere in the United .States. Patients should cheek with their children and children in law about this so they'll have the Information handy if they ever need it.
