THE LAWTON CONSTITUTION, Thursday, August 23,, 1963 Times Are Good But How Long Can That Last? B.v SAM IUWSON AF Business News Aimlysl NEW YORK (AP)--Times are good now bui how much lonper can lhat last? President Kennedy posed the. question ai his news conference Tuesday. Business economists ind stock market chart followers have been asking the same thing. They arc mindful that the cur- it; n I upturn in Ihe economy is some 30 monlhs old. By past records ilini brines il close to the classifiittlion of senior citizen. The President's precise evaluation of Ihe economy today is: "Good, Sliphlly better than was csiimalod in January. \Vhal we must be concerned about always, of course, is the future." Most of the statistics on which business and financial economists base their stock-taking show the economy healthy. In fact, it is healthier Ihnn many had expected only a few months buck when the Ions; upturn showed SIKHS of slowing down. Most of the indicators to which economists look in predicting the future still point to a further upturn in the next few months. The soothsayers differ, however, on their outlook for 196-1. The President says thai cutting federal income taxes for individuals and corporations could make the next year oven belter than 1363. Many business economists agree --if for different reasons. IVy hold that the cuts t h e m ' solves might loso much of their · immediate e f f e c t through higher ' state and local taxes and through payment of outstanding debts. But they do expect federal lax cuts to l i f t consumer and business confidence, making for more readiness to spend and. more im- portanl perhaps, willingness to go into debt for tv'\v plants and equipment or more consumer items for trie home of personal plf-Hsure. Kxccpt for concern over the a£? of the upturn from the 1PBP-61 recession, the economy today gives a good basis for confidence. Industrial production is at a new high. Il is expected to go higher when the a u t o industry gets into high gear with now 1 model production.

Oklahoma's top labor leaders said today unless the state Democratic party starts "helping our friends. . . Ihe party train will continue i t s bumpy i-ide, on downhill grade." Roy Tillman. slate AFL-CIO president, outlined what he called "a blueprint for victory in 196-1" in a prepared news release issued by the labor organization. "Our program calls for helping Our friends and hindering our enemies." Tillman said, "We are smart enough to know we have some of each in both parties." He said Democratic victory in 3W4 "is possible only by supporting a program the real friends of the Democratic party csn buy. Those who ;hink the parry's big effort should he aimed a! pleasing corporation farmers and Republican editorial writers arc looking through the wrong end of the political telescope,'' Tillman said the party has had support for years from "small farmers, friends of education, Negro voters, old-age pensioners and other welfare recipients, plus the working people of the state. "They are the backbone, head, feet and middle of the Democratic parly." the labor official said. "It's hard to understand why iheir needs arc so often ignored." Tillman took an indirect slap at some party leaders, saying "many staunch supporters of the past are now disgusted. "We're tired of sitting HI the second table, while Goldwater Democrats do the cooking and serve us indigestible 'dishes from their reactionary recipes." Prince Edward Negroes Register FARMVILLE, Va.
