PAGE 31 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N WEDNESDAY, MARCH ?, 1966 BUSINESS OUTLOOK 3.2 Pet. Guidepqsts Prove Noble Failure By J. A. LIVINGSTON Ad hocism will work for a while, but ad hoc administration of prices and wages, if tried too often, will degenerate into ari hnkiim "That was said in mid-November, after President Johnson rolled back the price of aluminum, but before he intervened in copper and structural steel and in wages in the construction trades. Now, we can look back. The 3.2 per cent guideposts of the Council of Economic Advisers were a noble experiment in price- and-wage control. They failed for two reasons: First, they were too specific. In 1962, they originally were expressed by President Kennedy as a reliance on the "good sense and'public spirit of our business and labor leaders." No numbers. Later definitization, at 3.2 per cent, made the President the regulator of the marketplace. Second, economic growth and Viet Nam created market pressures which the guideposts could not contain. So long as unemployment ranged above 4 per cent and industry operated well below 90 per cent of capacity, excess supply restrained labor leaders in wage bargaining and business executives in pricing policy. The President undid himself. His grand design -- the "great society" -- was more than the guideposts could stand. the President's rollback of headline commodities--aluminum, «teel and copper--did not stay the advance in most prices. And miscellaneous wage contracts exceeded the formula. The White House couldn't be here, there and everywhere, geographically and industrially. The cost of living kept going up. The coup de grace was the 1966 Economic Report, itself. The Council of Economic Advisers held fast to the 3.2 per cent formula, even though big gains in productivity in recent years indicated a mathematical advance to 3.6 per cent. This outraged George Meany, head of the AFL-CIO. He said so. All labor leaders got the message. Moreover, the New York City subway strike was resolved by a breakthrough, whicn made national headlines. And Secretary~ of Labor Willard Wirtz failed to convince leaders of the building trades unions that acceptance of the guideposts was in the long-run interest of their members. Finally, the AFL-CIO Council declared formally that the guideposts'were "nothing less than an attempt to shortchange the worker." So, like 3.2 per cent beer, goes a noble experiment. Yet, some new guideposts or standards may be useful. What's good for a particular union or industry is not always good for the nation. Businessmen and labor leaders need some objective yardstick to afford perspective on their wage-price decisions. Maybe a tripartite board, representing labor, management and "the public will be established ultimately by Congress. Or perhaps Congress will set up a procedure for prior announcement of wage and price boosts--a one-month waiting period for public reaction. The guideposts were intended originally as a .standard for behavior, an outside conscience, by which all of us could measure--pro or con--the responsibility of business and labor leaders. The administration aspired too high: To increase demand and lift unemployment--to rid the nation of poverty. It couldn't-it didn't--suppress the symptoms of its own policy. Only by moderating fiscal expansion and adopting monetary policies to-curb demand could the guideposts have been made to work. Market forces--what men must do in their own self-interest-won't respond to moral suasion. Man's inner conscience--what is necessary for his business or his union--will be stronger ultimately than the outside, conscience a President can provide. --Citizen Photo MUTUAL FUNDS NEW YORK (AP) -- The following quotations, supplied by the National Association of Security Dealers Inc., are the prices at which the securities could have been sold (bid) or bought (asked). .oom Say Mut Mass Inv Grth .

RABY, CPA Member, Tax Court Bar Question -- Am I correct that .:he 1964 tax law eliminated deductions for taxes on the re- urns of persons who itemize their deductions? Answer -- The 1964 tax law .educed the allowable taxes that could be deducted on your federal income tax return, but did not substantially eliminate the ax deductions to which you are entitled. You cannot any longer deduct cigarette taxes, auto license fees and taxes on personal items such as liquor and Emissions. You still are left vith a substantial number of deductions. You Cc... deduct, for instance, the real estate and per- onal property taxes that you said, the city and state sales axes that you paid, that.portion if your Arizona auto registra- ion fees which represents the n lieu personal property tax, and your state gasoline taxes. Some of these taxes, like the sales and gas taxes, are usually estimated. You can get a table of the estimated state sales GOVT.

TAX CLINIC Number Of Deductible Levies Reduced In '64 tax deductions from the office of the Internal Revenue Service, but bear in mind that this does not reflect the City of Tucson sales tax nor does it reflect sales tax on large purchases you might make such as the purchase of an automobile. You cannot deduct such payments for privileges or services as hunting licenses, dog licenses, driver's licenses or assessment for local impiovement, such as street paving, which increase property values. If you are a tenant stockholder in a cooperative type of setup, you may be able to deduct your proportionate share of the realty taxes paid by the co-op. If you bought or sold real estate during the year, the deduction for real estate taxes has to be allocated between you and the other party in proportion to the part of the year that each of you owned the property, even though your closing statement on the sale or purchase of the property may have shown a different allocation. The Daily Investor By WILLIAM A. DOYLE A. - I inherited $15,000, which is now in a savings account. I was considering investing about $5,000 of this money in common stocks -Coca-Cola, Consolidated Edison and Reynolds Tobacco. Some people tell me this idea is too conservative. Others say it is too risky. Since I remember the big depression, these conflicting opinions make me gun-shy. My wife thinks I should buy some Xerox and Fairchild Camera, hold them for a couple of months and switch to more stable stocks later on. To me, this sounds worse than playing the horses. Am I a square? A -- Sort of. But don't change. A square or a cube is less likely to go downhill in a falling stock market than a bouncing rubber ball. Your wife must be a real swinger -- suggesting that you put one-third of that inheritance in two high-flying stocks, for a fast turn. That could turn out to be mighty speculative -- especially considering the recent slump in the stock market. Your original choices are certainly more suited to a beginning investor. Those three companies have solid records of increased earnings and .dividend navments on their stocks. At this stage of the game thev must be considered far less risky than the two your spouse wants you to play around with. This doesn't mean that the market prices of those and any others you might consider will never fall. Reynolds Tobacco is now trading at less than half the high price it reached in 1961 -- when it was a favorite of the speculators. Coca-Cola and Con Edison are down in market price from last year. But, assuming that you are considering making relatively modest investments for the long pull, I'll stack my square reasoning up with yours. Mr. Doyle will answer only representative letters of general interest in his column. He cannot answer phone queries.

After a couple of years when the real estate market lay flat on its back and members drifted away, the association is slowly but surely pulling itself together again. Robert C. Caylor, the new president, is heading the effort, with aid and comfort from the national association. They have their work cut out for them. True, many of the marginal or speculative c o n s t r u e t i o n firms that flooded Tucson a few years ago have vanished--some went broke; some just moved on; some became other kinds of businesses. But that doesn't mean the remainder are easy to organize. And the home builders figure they've got to present a united front in many areas--such as EARNINGS i the year ended Dec. 31: I Mot inrnmo S 829.000 Veteran Financial Writer Dies At 80 NEW YORK -~W~ Oliver J. Gingold broke into financial reporting at a time when the only way to get company reports or dividend news was to attend the stockholder meetings. Gingold once recalled that the reports were often read hurriedly just to make it hard for reoorters to add the figures. "The present system of operating business in a fish bowl is much better for the neople and the country," he said. Gingold, 80. editor of the Wall Street Journal's "Abreast of the Market" column since 1933, died yesterday at his home of pneumonia.

STOCK EXCHANGE Study Of Alternate Site Urged NEW YORK -- UP) Keith Funston, president of the New York Stock Exchange, says it seems advisable to 'consider an alternate location outside New York City. This, he said in letters yesterday to exchange members, would be desirable even if the proposed increase in the sales tax on stock transfers were withdrawn. Such an alternate facility could be used, for example, "for exchange operations in case of emergencies and perhaps as a permanent site for some of'our activities such as electronic data processing, stock clearing, and records storage as well as some facets of our market making function," Funston suggested. "Such an auxiliary facility would give us more flexibility not only in case of hostile legislation in New York but also in the event of power failures, transportation emergencies, civil disturbances or a nuclear emergency affecting our New York headquarters." Funston called Mayor John Lindsay's proposed 50 per cent increase in the stock transfer tax "a grave threat to the securities industry." He had raised the possibility of the exchange moving elsewhere when the higher tax was first proposed. Funston said offers of potential new sites for the exchange "have been pouring into my of- Eice since our announcement last week that the exchange is un- NOW LEASING for April Occupancy " TUCSON FEDERAL SAVINGS TOWER alterably opposed to the mayor's request for a 50 per cent increase in the New York stock transfer tax."

Bankers Trust, the nation s seventh largest commercial bank, said in its annual investment outlook that the trend would be accentuated by diminishing bank investment in bonds and mortgages. That would leave it up to other types of investors to soak up the expected heavy supply of bonds and mortgages. But to attract such investors, said the bank, "it seems reasonable to conclude that yields will have to become convincingly attractive to individual investors." Inflationary pressures also would tend to steer investors from such investments, the report said, adding: "Thus, the preponderance of evidence is that the upward pressures on interest rales have not come to an end; interest rates do not yet appear to be at a level that will equilibrate demand and supply." · .40 Q 3-14 4-1 COTTONSEED OIL NEW YORK (AP) -- Bleachable cottonseed oil futures closed 4 to 7 higher.
