Costs To Much To Do Business By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - One thing most businessmen will contend is wrong with the state of the union is the seemingly constant rise in the cost of doing business. And increasing competition from abroad makes the problem keener today, as both the President and congressional leaders have pointed out. Caught in the bind, American industry is trying all kinds of tactics to cut back on the cost of producing and fabricating and distributing: Machinery to cut man hours of labor, economy drives to hold down phone calls or waste of paper clips, analysis of real costs of producing individual items. And ideas for paring costs whether in the production line, inventory storerooms, or office where paperwork seems to snowball, come from all sides. Some manufacturers make a point of showing customers how to cut their costs. Outside agencies are springing up, either to track down unnecessary costs, or to train a firm's executives to do so, or to furnish experts for once in awhile tasks. Here is just a sampling, a few of the many that are increasingly offered management in its endless fight: A paperwork simplification program is offered customers of Standard Register Co., of Dayton, Ohio. M. A. Spavd, its president, holds that much of the mountain of such work is unnecessary. He says the piece of paper itself is only five per cent of this unneces- sary cost, the rest being the effort to produce the final record. His program often shows customers how they can buy fewer forms (which he sells) by making one form do the work of two or more, and cut out duplication of work. What is needed, Spayd said in an interview, is the application of value analysis — long used by purchasing agents, engineers and production experts — to the firm's management and clerical divisions as they tend to get topheavy. Computers and other high speed data processing equipment have increased unnecessary paperwork by making already complex business systems still more complex, he holds. One of a number of agencies in the field is Value Analysis Inc. of Schenectady, N.Y., which asserts its techniques can usually spot from 20 to 25 per cent of the cost of a product as unnecessary. It says that in servicing some 50 companies in the United States it has helped remove $45 million of unnecessary costs. Among others in the field are the Reliability Dynamics Institute of West Acton, Mass., and Los Angeles, which offers courses on quality cost analysis; and R.C. Neal Company, Buffalo, N.Y., which teaches buyers not to be interested in inventories as such. It analyzes the cost of keeping an inventory, the value of turnover of company funds, to find the most profitable amount of goods to have on hand and the rate of reordering. Many companies are cutting down on costs by calling in outside experts rather than maintain their own staff of experts.

(AP)Douglas Aircraft Co. says it has fired 22 employes who refused to join a labor union or pay the equivalent of union dues under an agency shop agreement.

Douglas estimated 20 to 30 per cent of eligible employes are pay- ing an agency shop fee of about $5 monthly instead of joining the union.
