S"iO. mlllloa or What would you forecast for the market in the '70s, in view of inflation and the current let-down i n business? What stocks are going to do best? I recently began investing with extreme caution when the Dow Jones averages hit 800. Now my broker thinks the index will go below 700. AFTER repeating the shopworn forecast "The market will fluctuate," I've got to re-,sort J6 guessing. The Dow Jones is above 700, but there's no law against it going below. It could be back to 800 soon. A Stock Hesumes Tvadimj Parvin-Dohrmann Seeks New Look By NICK FAINA aeon Journal-Chicago Sun Times After only a week on the job, Parvin-Dohrmann Co.'s four blue ribbon directors have taken several steps to eliminate the company's stig- ma of financial double deal- n- The Los Angeles company is a diversified designer,, sup- plier and manufacturer to the restaurant, hotel and office building industry. However, ownership of three Las Vegas hotel-casinos has helped gain the company , an image synonymous with gambling. A firm has been engaged to help pick anew corporate name "to more accurately reflect the fact that Parvin-Dohrmann is in the service and leisure-time industry." THE DIRECTORS are in the process of selecting an executive recruiting firm to find a new chief executive. They have tentatively scheduled an , annual meeting for May. A joint task force of consultants and Parvin-Dohrmann management is beginning a survey of operations with a view toward improving profits. And, after initial investigation, the directors are considering the separation of the c o m p a n y's manufacturing business from its design business. DELBERT W. COLEMAN, Parvin-Dohrmann's controversial chairman, last Monday, announced his resignation and agreed to transfer the voting rights of his 207,300 shares to two of the newly appointed directors in a voting trust. The resignation was part of . eottior.n, u v ,,, oiun.iin.iu uj inc luiiinj with the American Stock Fx- ., ... , change, the Securities and Ex- 1 change Commission and the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Trading in Parvin-Dohrmann stock has been suspended since last Fall when the company announced that i t and Denny's Restaurants Inc. had terminated a merger agreement. On Oct. 16, the SEC filed a complaint charg- ing that a. group of investors , , . ... n . . , iicctucu uy vuiciimii, a luiuit-r Akronite, manipulated t h e price of Parvin-Dohrmann Stock and misled the public in connectjon witJ, the merger plan. SHORTLY AFTER, Parvin-Dohrmann, William C. Scott, (then treasurer and director) and Coleman entered into a consent decree with the SEC under which the company and the two officers, without ad-m i 1 1 i n g any allegations, agreed they wouldn't violate federal securities laws re- "Give me 5 weeks alone with you and I promise you will speak French!' j ' I into est f x A V I If you find this hard to believe, I, or one of my colleagues will prove it to you.

However, I think a few opinions can be offered without going too far out on a climb. Inflation will continue whether at the annual rate of 3-6 pet. or more I don't know. But there is no reason to believe that long-term trend will be reversed. Severe depression, of course, could stop inflation dead in its tracks as it did in the Thirties. But there have been some economic, political and philosophical changes since then. Neither government no public today is in the mood to swallow such drastic ,ferred to in the complaint, Coleman's resignation a n- nouncement last week was made in a letter to stockholders. In the same letter, the four new directors introduced themselves: Lester B. Knight, chairman of Lester B. Knight & Associates Inc. ; George A. Fry, former principal owner 0f George Fry & Associates; jonn A. Prosser, retired vice president of Northern Trust Co., and William R. Hamilton, president of Baron-Blakeslee Co. The four directors had no previous connection with the company, its offices, or stock- holders, KNIGHT, in an interview, explained that "one of the reasons we (the new direc-lors) accepted the responsibility and undertook to take control of Parvin-Dohrmann is a concern for the 1,774 stockholders who stood to lose possibly a substantial amount of money. "We are endeavoring to change the less-than-desirable connotation that the name Parvin-Dohrmann has in financial markets and with the ( Trade Goodyear Tire has combined the sheet rubber and special products department and the protective products department into a single sales organization, known as t h e special products department.

NATIONWIDE MUTUAL Insurance Co. handled more Medicare claims in January than in any previous month since the program began three and a half years ago.

Knight, noting that one of the reasons the company had found so much trouble was loose talk of corporate prospects, declined to be too specific about future plans. He did comment, however, that "as far as we can determine, Parvin-Dohrmann did not lose business and it goes into the 1970s with a substantial backlog in the form of orders." THE LETTER said that although the year end audit hasn't been completed, preliminary indications are that results for 1969, due to a fourth-quarter operating loss, will be slightly less than the $4.7 million or $3.56 a share, reported for the first nine months of 1969.

KMGHT SAID that in conversations with the Nevada gaming board and law officials, he learned that Parvin-Dahrmann Totels and casinos "where among the best run" in Las Vegas. "There is nothing dishonest in their operations," he said. He said the four directors would not have undertaken the job of improving Parvin-Dohrmann's operations and image of there wasn't a good potential. Knight said Parvin-Dohrmann has no intention of merging with other companies. "Our main goal is to reestablish this company as an attractive investment and as a good place for employes and management to w o r k," he said. COLEMAN RESIGNED, Knight said, at the request of the American Stock Exchange, which wanted to remove Coleman's influence from the company. Knight said that Coleman wanted to cooperate because Coleman owns 16 pet. of the company's stock. Scott resigned as a director and as treasurer. He will continue as president and chief operating officer "at the pleasure and under the direction of the new board and its executive committee." Knight and Fry form the executive committee.

Even though I know you mean no harm, I'm getting off it, just as quickly as I can. As a witness for my defense, (and also to take the heat off me) I call upon a symposium printed in the current edition of "The Institutional Investor." The magazine quotes the opinions of 15 men who handle billions of dollars in open-and closed-end investment companies, banks, personal investment accounts. Some preferred t o distinguish between their predici-tions for the next year or two and for the entire decade in most cases being more defensive on the near term. SOME were outspoken in their endorsement of anti-pollution stocks for both the short and long term. Others hedged, expecting lower markets in the year ahead ande x-pressing frank concern about such stocks which are selling at high price-earning ratios. Bald Boss Booming Hair Aids Beacon Journal-Chicago Daily Newi CHICAGO - Louis Zahn, with nary a strand of hair on top of his h e a d, must get some kind of special kick out of being a major Midwest supplier of hair-care products to drug and department stores. "The past couple of years have been tremendous," the president of Luis Zahn Drug Co. in Chicago said and much of the credit must go to the recent boom in popular-priced wigs and electric hair setters. This type of product innovation, he noted, will boost industry sales of hair gear and goo to an estimated $1.6 billion this year. "The electric hair setters were first introduced in 1967 and have had a sales volume of $175 million since then," he said. ZAHN started distributing $29 variety wigs to his l,r:l)0 customers last year, "and we've done better than we ever dreamed." He also expects heavy sales action for the new gadgets that have a combination of functirns: drying, combing, brushing and setting. But the big money is still in the three basic areas: shampoos ($290,000 a year)", hair sprays ($290 million) and hair coloring ($268 million). About 65 pet. of hair colorings and only 30 pet. of shampoos and sprays are scld in drugstores.
