I WEDNESDAY, MAY IT, 1SSO BI-.YTIIEYIT.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Industries Report Booming Business By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK, May 17. (/!»>—Sales managers in many companies are the fairliaircd lads around the conference tables (hose days. They have placed enough orders to keep their plants going for ninny weeks or months ahead, in spite of growing competition. A long list of booming sales orders*— : , today in a wide as- :ment of Judas tries. There !s a or two in the lot. And there are some predictions of better sales nnd therefore more production in the months ahead for a number of other industries. Businesses that haven't been doing so \vell of late join the happy sales parade, for the time being at least—like cotton textile mills anil freight car builders. Some that aie heading for their usual summer doldrums—as fuel oil, for example—-think they'll be busier than ever next fall, and raise prices and -set production goals higher. Good Times May Continue The booming lumber, steel, rubber and paper industries say they expect, good times for.quite a while yet. Enough print cloths and other cotton goods—an estimated 150 million yards— has been sold in recent days In New York's Worth Street to keep many cotton textile mills busy for six months. The largest freight car order to outside builders hi 25 years has just been placed by the Pennsylvania Railroad. The Equitable Life Assurance Society will pay for the 10.000 cars, and rent them to the railroad. The Insurance company also is buying 1.300 cars lo rent to the Atlantic coast Line railroad. Freight car orders lilt a low point 1 in 1949 (only 6,248 ordered in the entire year) but up til May 1 orders for 27,050 have been placed tljMkyear, and the new equitable dfflS will boost the year's figures still higher. Lumber dealers around the country report their sales top last year toy as much as 25 percent. Little wonder, with .starts of new homes running j>3 percent ahead of last yeur. Auto, Home Building Up The auto and home building booms combine to give the glass Industry record sales. .Some glass companies have stepped up production. Steel production this week is expected to hit 1,931.000 tons, a new record-rand steel sales managers don't have to extend themselves much Lo sell all of it. Paper production Is running at almost 104 percent of rated capacity. compared with 84 percent a year ago, the American Paper and Pulp Association reports. Summing it all up, the Commerce Department puts national output of all goods and services at an annual rate of $2G4 billion in the first quarter of this year, or $7 billion above the production in all of 1949. The manufacturers' sales In inarch • months. Co-Inventor of Gin Rummy Is Dead RESEDA, calif., May 17. (/!•)—The co-inventor of gin rummy Ls deac at the age of 02. C.

Y.. arc concerned about what their new neighbor, Leonid A. Morozpv, Soviet diplomat at the UN, plans to do with the 71 folding beds recently moved into the mansion.
