TUESDAY,.DECEMBER 12, 19S« Business Leaders Develop Worried Minds Over Outlook for Next Year JLB, (ARK,) COURIER N! l»,v BAM DAWSON ' «• NEW YORK, Dec. 12. l/>'|_The time for the free-wheeling prediction Is upon us. These are the days *'lwn the industrial leader or busi- .ness executive ponders publicly -J»nat lie^ ahead next year. ~ He Issues a statement. It, is intended to be reassuring to the stockholders. But frequently it also views with alarm what, Is going on in Washington, U usually promises thai the company will do all lit ils iwwcr. to hold down costs, to raise prices only as a last resort, and to stand four square behind the American way. If at all possible, the typical year-end statement, predicts business will be big- eer and better—wilh plenty of expert hedging thrown in. This year, however, there are signs of a poor season fnr predictions. Some companies are reliably reported planning to leave the crystal ball in (he back of the drawer, and admit they just don't know what's in store for them— or for you. The . once-a-year sucsscrs -are plagued by several things. For one, rarely before has It been so difficult for them to control what lies ahead, either for their company or lor business in general. The shots are being called elsewhere. For another, there arc conflicts -.that can't be reconciled easily. The fcjhatural tendency for business in ^ihe next few months would be to soar. This tendency is going to be curbed by government controls— and few can pretend to guess accurately now how this is going to work, Humor .-Mill Grinds And for still another, this month finds the rumor mill working overtime. It's a rare day (hat some rumor doesn't run through Wall Street. "Full mobilization within 43 hours" is a favorite one. "'Wage' and price controls ordered within two days" is another. By the time the deadline expires another rumor with a new zero-hour is being given a play. If.the current crop of year-end statements ! s bclighted by'(he uncertainty and the rumors which mark this month, the loss to the counry may be sustained with some show of courage. 'But the uncertainly and the rumors are no Joke to the businessman. He literally can't Icll which way I-c- jump. And he has to guess and guess well, .if his business is to prosper, and not go under. Merchants. Worry Some merchants who did a little too much -scare-buying of their own last summer are worried now. They ordered stock widely and in volume. Some of them are wondering if^theyjcan move this stock off (heir shelves before it is obsolete. Pre-Christmas sales In some stores reflect this worry over heavy inventories. :. • . • , ,. : .-... , j£ Some o manufaci.ur.ersXire. .yonder^ •ing if they can^keefr .production' high in face ot raw material cutbacks . for civilian use, ordered by the government before the letting of defense orders'which would take up the slack. Many metal-working companies are predicting that next month will see machlnes""idlc and workers laid off because of this. Others expect to be 'told what defense work they are to do and what civilian goods production they must drop. But they don't know when the order will come.'or how soon thev must start retooling. «-^™ R f U NIOK-The Duke and Duchess of Windsor exchange NVw v"^ »* "V rcu " lon aboard th * SS Queen Elizabeth in New \ork after his return from Europe.
