David Wayne BUSINESS (Continued from Page 1) wou!d not appreciably change. Because the' economy is' no> more or less keeping pace wli, both civilian and military require meuts. the report said, there wi be neither a backlog ol demani nor a letdown in 1955. In the present national securlt program, military spending is ex pected to reach a peak at abou 15 to 17 per cent of the gross na (lonal product and to drop to a maintenance level of about 12 DC cent. Among principle points in th report were these: I. "The strong probability though of course no certainty, o another year of good business In 1953." 2. "A downturn In 1054 Is a rea possibility...." 3. "The projected decline in de fense spending in 1955 would pro vide a serious test of the econ omy.... Thus, 1855 appears to be a year in which it will be of major importance slzably to expand prl vato markets." 4. Personal Income after taxe. in 1955 may be 240 billion dollars an increase of 7 per cent over 1951. , 5. No major price raises are in dicated in the near future. 6. A timely year for tax cuts would be 1055, when both govern ment and private spending may be slacking off. TV Engineers Sought SINGAPORE (If) — The British government has been asked to provide, experienced television engineers to help start a television :ransmitting station here. The suggestion was made by British Trade Commissioner k. E MacKenzle. Radio engineers at present working here have little or no television experience. MOX Show Starts • . Weekdays 7:00 Saf.

Hngerty was (old today (here >ave been reports that Eisenhower has promised senators lhat key appointments will be so channeled in the future. _"f, would think (hat would be B com As for Ihe recommendations Eisenhower has asked on wage-price controls, an Informed source who asked not to be named, said the advisory group-has been studying the whole complex matter" for some lime, but has not reached ?vcn a preliminary decision. The advisers were described as :mlnentiy qualified, but the source declined to say who they are. In another field, Eisenhower last light named a 14-jnnn agricultural irivisory committee lo help draft Ihe Incoming administration's farm program. The committee was appointed by Eisenhower after conferences with Ezra Taft Benson, secretary of agriculture-designate, and 'it will ivork with Benson. The group ol farm specialists is headed by \V ; I Myers, dean of the Agriculture College at Cornell University. The, committee Is an Interim mil which will serve between now md inauguration day, Jan, 20, and perhaps for 'a while thereafter. It probably will be succeeded by a bipartisan federal agricultural commission, which Eisenhower said during the campaign he would create if elected. The President-elect was returning to his Commodore Holel office loday for Ihe first time since last Wednesday, when the headquarters was closed for the Christmas iveekend. To See Huffman Only two visitors were on the calling list today—Boston banker Robert. Cutler, who served as an adviser during the campaign, and Paul G. Hoffman, former chief of the Marshall Plan foreign aid pro;ram in the Truman administration and -now head of the Ford foundation. Hoffman also was an idviser to Eisenhower during the campaign. Hoffman said after a recent conference, with Eisenhower that for Personal reasons he was not In the market 'for a Job In the new administration. Cutler called on the general last week and said "we didn't talk about Slat—yet" when isked by newsmen whether he rould take a government job. The problem of what to do about vage-price. congrols Is regarded by Eisenhower associates as one of the knottiest confronting him. The present wage-price control aw expires April 30. Eisenhower's position during the campaign was that he wanted to see wage-price curbs Junked as oon as feasible. He will have to decide In the early days of his administration whether this spring vill be a feasible time. He also will-seek advice on the .'age-price control Issue from Sen. iobert A. Taft of Ohio and other Senate Republican leaders. The r eneral, who already has con- erred with House GOP leaders, •nay meet with the Senate group his week. The Stalin peace over- ures also are likely to be dls- ussed with Ihe senators.

FOR ROAD ECONOMY ' Concrete is the economical pavement for two-lane federal state and county roads as well as for heavy-duty highways. Rigid concrete pavement is moderate in first cost yet can be designed accurately for any legal axle load-and it will keep its load- carrying capacity throughout its long service life. Concrete costs less to maintain than other pavements as provcd by average cost figures from official records of 28 State Highway Departments that report maintenance figures by type of surface Concrete highways also last longer than other pavements as proved by studies published by the Highway Research Board. Moderate first cost + low maintenance cost -i- long life =- f ow annual c«f. With hw-ominof-coif concrete less money h diss i. pated on maintenance, leaving more money for new construction.

Hoger, the twin who lost his connection wlih Ihelr common brain drainage blood vessel—the sagittal sinus—in the 15 hour 40 minute operation Dec. 17. Is sllll In a coma. Rodney, who has (he benefit of Ihe large vein and some brain covering membrane sacrificed by nocer, is alert and apparently near normal. Both twins are receiving adequate nourishment. The great danger Is possibility of Infection which could prove fatnl within a matter of minutes. Roger, with virtually no dura mater—the membrane which encases Ihe brain—has a substitute membrane of a plastic substance polyethylene. This Is covered by a layer of aluminum foil. Over this is a bandage. Rodney, who has about two-thirds of the top os his brain covered with natural dura mater, has substantially the same head covering as his brother. Rodney has been taken off of oxygen. Roger still gets supplemental oxygen. In feeding, the care of the twins varies greatly. Rodney gels a normal diet for a 15-inonth-old baby —strained foods, ofange juice and milk. He doesn't like milk. He drinks his orange Juice eagerly. Rodney, because of his coma which has been unremitting since the operation. Is fed through a tube passed through one nostril and down his esophagus to his i stomach. ; Through this tube,, he receives about one ounce of a formula every 30 minutes. His diet contains about one-Wth water mixed with • com- blnatlon of milk, a high protein powder and egg. i"«i«n There can'be no short pull to security for the youngsters. They will be considered borderline rlsits until they have withstood the fur. (her surgery which awaits thern^ to give them skull caps. In the case of Roger, there Is a double hurdle. It may be s long time before he regains conscious, ness. Doctors are only now beginning to he hopeful about his chances of recovering.
