By JOHN CUNNIFF NEW YORK (AP) - Although business is the immediate loser in what appears to be a growing incidence of theft, it hasn't always been the first to complain publicly. And for this, it has incurred considerable criticism. Speaking recently to a House committee on the affairs of small business, a University of Michigan scientist, Albert J. Reiss Jr., estimated that pilferage cost American business $3 billion in 1967-1968. At Kennedy Airport here, the Airport Security Council, made up of airlines and freight forwarders, complained this week that $100,000 in watches have been stolen this year. The year's total of all thefts at the airport might exceed $2 million. It did last year. In Wall Street it appears that! millions of dollars of securities have been stolen in the past year. But in one of the latest cases of fraud there, the compa- Atlvertlsement ny withheld information from the police. Cargo thefts from truckers are reliably estimated by indus try sources to total nearly $1 bil lion a year, but surprisingly little public concern is expressed about such tremendous losses. Now that the size and impact of such losses are becoming bet ter known, it isn't necessarily because business has changed its attitude and is publicizing the problem. "It is amazing that law en forcement has been able to do what it has done, despite the lack of cooperation of business and labor," a Manhattan assist ant district attorney told busi ness executives recently. Why the retience? In Wall Street, at least, some brokers are said to feel that it is better to cover up rather than reveal securities thefts, the reasonine being that any loss might lessen the public's confidence. In some industries. It has been hinted, it might be consid- Doctors Find Way That Shrinks Hemorrhoids Before They May Ulcerate and promptly stops itching, relieves pain in most cases New York, N.Y.: If neglected, simple, common hemorrhoids may easily become irritated, infected, ulcerated or may break. So at the first sign, treatment should begin at once. Doctors usually advise sitz baths and proper medication. And what more effective medication can the sufferer want than this exclusive formula which doctors found in most cases-actually shrinks inflamed hemorrhoids and promptly re- Tests upon hundreds of patients by doctors in New York, Washington, D.C. and at a Midwest Medical Center proved this so. This doctor-tested medication is obtainable under the name Preparation and needs no prescription. Preparation H also helps check the discharge that seeps through and causes itching and irritation. It soothes inflamed tissues and spreads a protective coating over the sensitive area to help guard against further, irritation and infection. It also lubricates, softens to make bowel movements less painful. There's no other hemorrhoid treatment like Preparation H. So successful it outsells all other remedies combined, in ointment or suppository form. ered advisable to cooperate with criminal elements, the rewards being easy labor contracts, un derworld loans and even stolen merchandise. IT'S COSTLY FOR CUSTOMER of reflection and prayer. In her home at Worcester, Mass., the widow of rocket pioneer Robert H. Goddard sat alone and watched television as man stepped on the moon for the first time. When a newsman phoned she said, "I'm sorry ... I'd rather be by myself ... you under stand." i A soft rain fell at Auburn, Mass., where Goddard fired his first liquid fueled rocket in 1926 In New York, some 3,000 peo ple watched the moon landing at a huge television screen at Ken-nedy International Airport. Hun- dreds crowded in front of anoth er big screen at the Time-Life Building across from Radio City Music Hall. An estimated 4,000 watched the three huge TV screens erected in Central Park. Across the nation, in Ana- heim, Calif., 80 members of the Soviet Union's track and field team saw the moon landing on Disneyland TV screen In many industries an attitude seems to prevail that crime is something bigger than the ability of any one company to contend with and therefore should be accepted as a cost of doing business. This attitude results in busi ness spending millions of dollars on security and in maintaining police icrces. But much less is spent to get at the root of the problem to prevent rather than protect. Who pays the extra cost? In many instances the customer does hundreds of millions of dollars a year in price increases and security costs, according to H. Bruce Palmer, head of the National Industrial Conference Board. FTC Seeks to End All Cigarette Ads j tltl onU 3 if nil WALKER' - BOURBON 1 They make decisions rather than compromises.

Moss, D-Utah, said today the cigarette industry is, ready to curtail television commercials in exchange for a law permitting continued advertising in newspapers and magazines. But Moss, leader of a strong! Senate anti-smoking bloc, still hoped Congress would leave the; Federal Trade Commission (FTC) free to require a stern health warning which could eliminate all cigarette ads, on the air and in print. The Senate Commerce Com mittee's consumer subcommit tee, chaired by Moss, has called leaders of the cigarette and broadcasting industries to testi fy Tuesday on a house-passed bill which would prohibit government regulation of cig arette advertising beyond a strengthened health warning on eacn package. JT , . many senators nave ex pressed opposition to . the measure, which would ban proposed crackdowns by the FTC and Federal Communica tions Commission (FCC). The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) offered last week to phase out television and radio cigarette commercials gradually during the next four years. But Moss said "four years is too long for us to wait." In an interview today, Moss said cigarette industry leaders told him privately they were willing to take their commercials off the air "at an accelerated schedule" com pared with the four-year NAB plan.
