2 - Monday, July 15, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Gross national product needs to hustle along By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON -(NEA) - Internal Revenue Service has just reported that for the third year in a row American business receipts were in excess of one trillion dollars. That's Sl.OOO billion or $1,000, 000,000,000, an amount to ponder on. This accounting for the calendar year 1962 and for business fiscal years ending in 1982 was made from income tax returns filed by nearly 11.4 million business concerns. The returns came from 9.2 million sole proprietorships, 939,000 partnerships and 1.2 million corp orations. Corporation returns were over a million for the third year in a row. Every figure is up over the previous income tax year except the number of partnerships- down about 1,600 — and their volume of business, down $276 million. Business profits rose 4.3 per cent during the year to $87.4 billion. Profits of corporations were up 3.4 per cent to over $52 billion. Profits of sole proprietorships were up 6 per cent to $25.7 billion and profits of partnerships up 4 per cent to $9.7 billion, in spite of the drop in concerns. This statistical rundown hardly Indicates that U. S. business is terrible or that private enterprise is about to disappear. But with these figures m mind, it is interesting to take a look at Treasury Secretary C. Douglas Dillon's pretty realistic roundup on the economy in his talk before the National Ccal Assn. Speaking of more recent economic developments. Dillon pointed out that in the past 12 months, U. S. gross national product has risen $28 billion or 5.5 per cent to an annual rate of $580 billion. He said this isn't good enough. The bad part of the situation is that unemployment is up from 5.3 per cent of the labor force a year ago to 5.9 per cent in May, and TOOK IT HARD LINCOLN, England (UPI) - Employes of the Lincolnshire Road Car Co. went on strike for two hours today in protest of the firing of bus driver Roy Baker. Baker, 33, killed himself last week, five hours after losing his job. You'U Find a Ready Market Thru Fast-Acting Facts Classified AOs likely to go over 6 per cent for June, as graduates start looking for jobs. "To put it another way," says Dillon, "we would need an average GNP rise of $14 billion a quarter — beginning now — to close the gap between unemployment and output by the end of 1964." At the present growth rate of a little over $8 billion a quarter, it would take 10 years to reach the interim target of 4 per cent unemployment. One reason Dillon gives for the increased unemployment is that by June 30, 1964, there will be 10 million more Americans than there were the day President Kennedy took office. Population is growing faster than jobs. This gave the secretary — who is a Republican, by the way — his chance to put in a plug for the administration t a x program, which is having its troubles in Congress. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Wilbur Mills, D- Ark., now hopes to get a tax bill passed by the House by late July or early August. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., has promised he won't delay action on the House bill, although he is personally opposed to the administration program. But if the bill runs into a Senate filibuster on civil rights there's no telling whether a tax bill can be passed to become effective next Jan. 1. If the bill can be passed by Oct. 1, says Dillon, there would be $10 billion in tax relief in the following 15 months. The Joint Economic Committee of Congress has estimated this would eventually increase GNP by $40 billion, which would give a considerable lift to employment. On the question of reducing gov emment expenses to offset the tax cut, Dillon charges that there has been a lot of "loose and spendthrift oratory" on holding 1964 expenditures to the 1963 level. "The truth is," says Dillon, 'that the entire $4.5 billion increase can be accounted for in only three areas — defense, space and interest on the public debt. The total of all other expenditures is being held below the 1963 levels." If this is irresponsible financing, it was not reflected in the most recent Treasury bond offering of $1.2 billion bonds maturing in 1970. It drew subscriptions of $16.2 billion, or nearly 14 times the offer.

Receive Extra Savings udth Wise Owl Stamps We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT, Recently I received this letter: "Because of my job I moved to a new location about three months ago. I work long hours, travel frequently and haven't had a chance to meet new friends. "I'm a bachelor and would like to meet some attractive women, but don't know how to go about it." This problem can be easily solved. Just let it circulate among the married men you know that you're interested in meeting some girls, and you'll have so many invitations you'll need a secretary to handle your social life. Don't you know that every young married woman wishes she knew an eligible bachelor? With just one eligible bachelor at her beck and call a hostess can relax. She can count on him to help her out when her old school chum arrives for a week's visit; when she invites her husband's secretary to dinner, or when she wants to have a college-girl cousin for the weekend. Every married woman faces the problem of where to find an extra man when she entertains. And most young married women have at least one good friend for whom they'd like to find a husband—someone they know is a perfectly wonderful girl who should m^e some man a good wife — if the right man could just be found. So no young inan needs to be lonely in a strange city or wonder how to go about meeting girls. The situation of the lone male is in no way like that of the lone young woman. An "extra woman" is a problem to the hostess. But the "extra man" is the answer to a hostess' prayers.
