A cold wave, accompanied in some sections, by heavy snows, had a two-fold effect on Christmas will reject the tax proposal if it sn't coupled with a reduction in spending. Statements of cautious optimism about the outlook for next year came from several quarters. Ladd 'lumlcy, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, predicted 963 will be "a good but not a boom year." Plumley said a tax cut "could buying. In some areas it aroused go a long way toward resldr- lagging enthusiasm and in others bogged shoppers down The storm threatened millions of dollars in damage to Florida crops. And newspaper strikes, which blacked out the advertising columns in New York City and Cleveland, bit into holiday buying. President Kennedy told his news conference in Washington Wednesday and the Economic Club of New York in a speech in New York City Friday that he would ask Congress for an early, substantial inr.jnv tax reduction when it convenes in January. In the speech he promised to couple a tax cut with a clampdown on rising federal spending. This obviously was aimed at con gressional critics of a tax rollback without a reduction in federa spending. Tn neither of his discussions did the President indicate how big a cut he will ask nor when he wants it to take effect. Earlier he had mentioned next Jan. 1 as the de- iked effective date. "This nation can afford to reduce taxes--we can afford a tern porary deficit--but we cannot afford to do nothing," he told the business-man audience at the Economic Club dinner. He had said at his earlier news Â· Â· .conference: Â· "What I think' should be of concern to us all 13 not the question of the immediate prospects for the next three or four months but, really, the general trend of our in dustrial growth, our employment lag, over the last five or six 'Â·'Â· years." He added that, "It will be up to the Ways and Means Commit . tee and the Congress to make a . Judgment." The Ways and Means Commit tee--which originates tax leglsla lion--held the answer, and its chairman, Rep. Wilbur Mills, D- Ark., has definite ideas about tax ing more satisfactory economic jrowth." In New York City, the Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. concluded that business is finishing 1962 "in a hase of hesitant expansion" and that "sentiment is better than it was last summer, although fingers lave not yet been completely uncrossed against the possibility 6f a downturn in early 1953." A heartening indicator was the Commerce's Department report :hat retail sales in November rang up increases of two per cent over October and five per cent over November 1961. The same agency reported thÂ»t sales of merchant wholesalers set a monthly record of $13.5 billion in October. Automobile production during the week spurted to another week !y record for this year.
