I --Corbin Times-Tribune, Sunday, August 31,1975 Trends Elusive To Find · · JOHN CUNN1FF AP Butintts Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-Over the long .Labor Day weekend, perhaps while gazing kily at some distant mountain peaks that remind him of a Dow Jones chart, some analyst or another might find a positive trend for the stock market. You can't find it in the news. 'True, the government's index of 'leading indicators continues to rise, but it isn't all good news. Interest rates, for instance, remain high, and that's bad for .'stocks, You really can't establish a good forecast by listening to what comes out of Washington either, because Washington isn't even agreed on what's wrong with the economy or on what steps are needed to bring an improvement. ' There are few clues to be found in commentaries of Wall Street analysts, whose views range from a forecast of less man 400 points for the Dow Jones to well over 1,000 points during the next few years. If you seek the advice of indi- vidual investors you will prob- ably find they prefer to put their money into fixed-income savings or government secu- rities. They want to see a trend before they commit themselves. Seeking a guide, one is forced to look into the history of the market, to study a mountain of statistics in the manner of the ancient seers who thought they could find a pattern, a forecast, in a study of entrails. A study of market statistics never fails to be effective in supporting your views. You can find almost anything there if you look long enough and if your imagination is attuned to the task. Sure enough, the trend is found. "Watch what happens to stock prices during the short four-lay week following Labor Day," advises Yale Hirsch, who has burrowed long and deeply^ into 1 'the , supply of statistical information. ' "Should the market decline that week," says Hirsch, who publishes "The Stock Trader's Almanac," postpone your pur- chases for 30 days. But, "if there's a net gain that week, buy at once, knowing the market will probably be higher 30 days later." This strategy, he maintains, "would have put you on the right side ... in 13 of the last 14 years." Miners Ask Grievance Rights . PHELPS, Ky. (AP) - "Around here, coal is about all there is. When that shuts down, you get pretty.bored." Billy Compton, one of about 5,000 Eastern Kentucky coal miners participating in a wild- cat strike, summed up the feel- ings of the strikers in those irords on Thursday. · "You can't just go away, be- cause you don't know when you'll be called back to work," he continued. The wildcat strike began in southern West Virginia on Aug. 11 and spread into Eastern Kentucky Aug. 21. It has closed all union mines in Pike County and several large mines else- where in the Kentucky moun- tains. For the most part, the miners are seeking broadened rights to strike over local grievances and a stop in the practice by coal companies of taking union disputes to the federal courts. Several miners said they would rather work than remain idle but that their mines were closed when union members from West Virginia came in and set up picket lines. They said miners, by tradition, don't cross union picket lints, "Those boys over in West Virginia have a whole different welfare system over there," said Tom Comploii, another striking Pike County miner. "They draw food stamp* ard that stuff when they're on strike. It doesn't hurt them any to strike, like it does us." A number ot miners com- mented that they believe, the strike will continue until the strikers feel their demands are being met. . , ; : "I would rather not lose » day of work myself, but 1 think they really mean business thii time," said Cecil SpauMing «f the strike's organizers. "They want the right to strike or else," Corbin Times-Tribune, Sunday, August 3t, W5--.» SHOP H O W A R D ' S AND SAVE! SHOP HOWARD'S AND SAVE! SHOP HOWARD'S AND S'AVII SHOP HOWARD M SAVE!

(AP) - When she was little, Jenny Rowlands read the BUck SU1- ' lion stories by flashlight under ; the covers. · She can't remember a time j when horses were not a major -,, interest in her life, When she became old enough to get a Job, It had U be something to do with horses, "I dreaded the idea of wort- . ing eight hours a day on the task indoors," she said. "I though, why not do something that I can do and really enjoy as an oc- cupation?" Several vocational counselors urged her to be realistic about a career choice, , She had been stricken with ] polio at the age of 3 and lost use of muscles in her legs and ) back. She cannot walk without , crutches. ' , . Nevertheless, her reaction to , the counselors, who advised against a career in teaching horseback riding, was, "Why? Just because I'm hand!- 1 capped?" '· At the age of 8, doctors rec- ommended that she spend sev- ' eral hours a day sitting on a ' saddled barrel in the living ' room to correct a scissors gait, Her mother decided that Jenny , could do the same exercise on horse. So Jenny learned to ride. With no grip muscles in her J legs, she rides completely by ( balance. She can move her left foot enough to wiggle against , her horse's side and Is able to tighten the hamstring muscle to bend her left leg. She rides with full leg braces, but only for support. . Now 28 she was hired a year ago as assistant riding instruc- tor for the Lexington-Fayette , County Parks and Recreation , Department. She became head instructor in June and teaches a dozen pupils of all ages. She says owning the right horse is crucial for a handi- capped person. "Some horses seem to have an understanding about this," , she said. "You can't just get on ' '° 21C BAG LIMIT-2 CHARCOAL STARTER QT.

She' is a patient . is well in control of her "classes." A beginning student lost con- trol of her horse during class one day, and Jenny -- despite her crutches -- went after horse and rider, scolded the maverick animal and restored order to the class. She has learned to live with her handicap, and says the hard part isn't learning to live with the handicap itself -- but with the fmslratlons. "It's something that has to be handled every day," she said, "and it doesn't necessarily get any easier as you get older." Classroom Total Will Be Lower By JOHN STOWELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The estimated 58.9 million students trooping back to classrooms this fall is the smallest number in recent years, but the cost of educating them has gone up more than 10 per cent from last year. U.S. Commissioner of Educa- tion Terrel H. Bell, in his annual "back-to-school" forecast today, said public and private education costs about $108 bil- lion in the 1974-75 school yew. Total enrollment, from kin- 'dergarten through graduate school, will be one-f ourlh of one per cent lower than the 5*.'l million last year. The biggest decline will be felt in elementary grades as * result of the falling birth rate, Bell said, while the 1978 high school graduating class will be the largest in history and cot- leges will be awarding more graduate and professional de- grees than ever before. The ail-lime enrollment at aH I levels was 59.7 million recorded [ in the fall of 1971. Three out of every 10 Ameri- cans will be involved in educa- tion this fall, Bell said, coanttm, students, 3.1 million clMroan teachers and an additional 300,000 superintendent*, prfct- cipals, superrittn and instructional employes. Bell said colleges are pecKd to award about ' the same at 1174-7$ twt ' SHOP HOWARD'S AND S A V E ! SHOP HOWARD'S AND SAVj!
