TUESDAY, JANUARY IT, 19M BLTTHETILLE (ARK.) COURIER HEWS PAGE "THREE Some 'Business Observers See Cresting of Prosperity Wave By 3AM DAW6ON . NEW YORK (AP) — Both President Eisenhower in- his budget and industry in its ex pansion plans are betting on continuing good times. . This stands out against a background of increasing nervousness in financial quarters where a number of observers today sight what they believe to be the cresting of the prosperity wave. The President's belief that the* economy is headed still higher this.' year is shown in his estimate. of government receipts. He exnects government revenues to rise by 1% billion dollars in the fiscal year starting next July, The only way this could happen would be for good times to continue and to blossom even more That would assure increased collections irom corporation incomes. It would provide higher tptals of salaries and wages from which the government could collect an increased total of individual income taxes. The higher corporate and individual incomes would be made in 1956—because collections on income i in booming 1955 willj be'for the most part complete in this fiscal year ending June .30. Must Be Better ' .To collect V't billion dollars more next year means, therefore, that this year will have to be even better than last. Many industrial leaders are bet- ling the .same way t Businessmen are planning to spend more—at least in the first part ol this year— for new plants and better equip• ment than they did a year ago. Latest example is General Motors. President Harlow H. Curtice has assured his fellow business leaders that backing his con^-tence in continued national prosperity, QMt will, spend a record one billion dollars this year for plant and machinery. - Curtice, also says .business in general will see "another record year"- in 1956 and a new high in teh gross national product—the dollar value of total output of industry and services. For his own industry he pre- aicts : "the second best year in production and sales"—second only to record-busting-1955. But in many Quarters enthusiasm has been changing to caution, and In such places a- the stock market from caution to nervousness. The steel Industry- notes that auto makers, cutting production and employe lists, are also cutting back on steel orders more than had been expected. -Retailers who were here for their convention last week say they'd 'like to raise prices on many goods. But many say..they fear customer resistance if they do.
