(Journal Photo by Mark Mendiola) Tri-plex Theatres Slated Construction of a new Alameda Plaza triplex movie theatre will begin next week with grand opening slated for the first of July, Mann Theatres Corp. of California has announced. Ron Harman, manager of the Chief Theatre, will manage the new theatre complex when it opens in conjunction with Bicentennial Fourth of July celebrations. Harman 'will continue to manage the Chief Theatre, another subsidiary of Mann Theatres Corp. The Chief will not close as result of the new theatre opening, he asserts. Harman has managed the Chief for the past five years, but has been with Mann for 18 years. General contractor for the tri-plex theatre project will be the John Price organization of Salt Lake City. The theatre , structure will be located south of the KWIK radio station. Each of the three theatres in the new building will have seating capacity for 250 spectators. A common cashier and concession stand in the lobby also will service each of the theatres. In addition to the new Poeatello theatre, three other tri-plex theatres will soon be constructed by Mann Theatres Corp. in Idaho Falls, Logan, Utah and Missoula, Mont.

Dow Jones Index Rises 75%, Investors Still Not Happy By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (SP) - While the most popular stock market indicator, the Dow Jones index of 30 industrial stocks, has risen about 75 per cent from its low point on Dec. 6, 1974, many top executives are hardly satisfied. Their feeling is like that of a lot of other Americans who, upon reading the_ good news about an economy once again moving forward, are inclined to think that they are excepted. They want to be included. The big surge in stock prices, they say, has been concentrated in the bluest of the blue chips, leaving hundreds of other substantial companies in a very black mood. The vast majority of companies are still experiencing difficulty in attracting attention to their snares, said C.V. Wood, Jr., chairman of the Committee of Publicly Owned Companies,of which 667 chief executives are members. In material prepared for the Senate Finance Committee, Wood, who is president of McCulloch Oil Corp., called attention to what he said was a continued night of small in- estors from the equity mar- It is those investors, the committee believes, who provide the backbone of financing for some of the second and third tier companies - substantial, profitable companies that somehow don't attract the big institutional funds. The institutions, it seems, which are included in the compilations that make up the popular industrial average. Odd-lot trading -- which is trading in units of less than 100 shares, and which is supposed to be indicative of small investor activity -- has not picked up in the most recent rally, despite a general upsurge in volume. In February, Wood said, investors sold 1.2 million shares in odd-lots, and bought only 4.9 million shares. And something of the sort has been going on m mutual funds also, with redemptions running uncomfortably high. The committee long has urged Congress to change the tax laws to encourage more participation by individual investors. It urgently seeks, along with other groups, a reduction of the double tax on corporate dividends. The committee also seeks a $1 000 capital gains exclusion on securities transactions, and encouragement of employe stock-ownership plans as a means to broaden the share- Many of these investors were victimized by the wild up-down churning of the market in the late 1960s and are determined not to be caught again. Some of them seem to be less confident of vigorous, uninterrupted economic growth. What this seems to indicate is that the individual investor, burned a few times but possessed of essential common sense, is still inclined to play it safe for a while more. He wants more assurance. And maybe he wants tax relief too.
