(AP)—The boom In durable goods amazes some of Jfce experts today. jmer higher prices nor climb- Ing personal debts stays the American public from buying more cars and more household gadgets than ever before. The unusually high marriage rate since the war may be what's causing it, experts in the Commerce Department opine today, Groundlcs fears of an inevitable • nd approaching war may be what's urging them on, says Paul G. Hoffman. "When inquiry Ls made of would- be purchasers of cars," says the Marshall Plan administrator, who used to head the Studebaker Corporation, "they often explain they figured to play it safe and get- a car while the getting was good." Deplores Attitude Hoffman deplores this belief in the inevitability of war as playing directly into the hands of Moscow But he says it may explain the continued, surprising heavy demand for new automobiles. Sales of all kinds of hard goods as well as autos, are running higher than could be expected from income and price levels, Commerct Department experts say. S^y admit there Ls still some de inQ for cars left over from the war. But they say that new demand is " extremely sensitive" U> changing bnsines conditions and prices and, therefore, they think that when the deferred demand Is played out, price reductions could replace it as a stimulus to production and sales.

This gain ran hand in hand with the home Building boom. And the department links both to the unusually high marriage rate, which lilt its peak in 1M6 but Is still above the prewar rate.

S. is experimenting with bacteriological warfare by dropping thousands of polato bugs on Soviet-controlled East Germany. The German Communist weekly "Deutschlands Stinime" purports to prove the accusation with the front-page layout shown above. The headline reads: ''Potato Bugs Dreamed Up? Our Reporters Followed the Trail of an American Pilot.*' The map is alleged to show the route of the bug-bombing plane. Other pictures show peasant women who say they saw the plane and a place where Reds claim bugs were dropped. soon "the usual market forces will determine sales of these products." Marriages, fear of war. generally good times, or whatever it is—consumers continue to snend, and the industries they favor are doing mighty fine. Chinese Rip Red Airfield TAIPEI, June 21.
