PACK TWO BLITJ1IY1LLB (ARX.y COURIER JlfifTI TOMCAT, SEPTEMBER 18,1»H Shortages May Put Damper on. Some Industrial Output Bj- SAM DAWSOK NEW YORK (AP) — Shortages threaten to put a damper on some segments of industrial production. Tight supplies, particularly in metals, are sending purchasing agents scurrying — and paying premium prices. Th« shortages, despite the great* —— postwar gains in production capacity, hive tafcen many businessmen by surprise — just as the extent of the business boom took them by surprise earlier. Copp«r his been lifted almost to the class of a precious metnl in recent days. So' tight is the supply that some users, caught short, are said to have paid as much as 51 cents a pound to keep their mills running. A dock tie-up in the east has kept, some foreien copper from being unloaded, making the pinch even more severe. Strikes Caused Shortage Strikes earlier in the year in the mines and smelters caused the present worldwide shortage. Boom- ine European and American industries have been snappina up all the available metal at steadily increasing prices for months. Metal users' who could turn to aluminum as a substitute for copper are finding supplies of the light metal are tight also—and its price on the rise. too. Steel users complain about slow deliveries. The steel mills are pushing most of their available facilities but can't meet the pressing demand. As the backlog of orders piles up. they see near-capacity production well into next. year. Lumber orders have exceeded production so far this year. And so have shipments. Mill stacks have declined steadily. Imports of lumber have run 43 per cent ahead of last year. But tight supplies continue to be reported in several sections where the building boom is still strong. Cement supplies have been short In several localities. One company has just raised cement prices by eight per cent, and the building trades ar« braced for a general price rise. Shortages have caused a number of industries — steel, aluminum and cement, .for example— to plan further plant expansion. New production facilities, in time. will overcome the shortages which plague purchasing agents today. But meantime tight supplies will add to the pressure lor higher prices of many materials.
