Their increase in net income after taxes in 1955 averages about a third higher than 1954. For many of them the prospects of continuing on the upgrade are good for the first half Of 1956. ' ..__.

The gain for the U.S. Treasury is roughly the same, since corporations put aside for federal income taxes about the same amount they report as net profits. Leading the • parade in percentage gains over the previous year are those industries who suffered most from the 1954 recession or those tied in with the big boom in the auto indu^'ry Big Gainers The big gainers include meat packers, steel and iron, rail equipment, airlines, textiles and appar- ,el, autos and trucks, coal, mining and metalworldng. Doing better than the -average were: farm equipment, glass, paint, auto suppliers, railroads, chemicals, drugs. • Industrials as a whole did better than the utilltes and rails. The 406 industrial companies : averaged 37.2 per cent higher than the previous year. The railroads averaged 35.4 per cent better — striking gains by some roads were offset by five carriers showing decreased earnings due to floods or other special causes. The reg" lated utilities followed their usu quiet course for an average increase of 12.9 per-cent. Only two industries are in the decreased earnings category in the early returns. Aircraft, with three out of four showing declines average off by 2.9 per cent. Elec tronlcs, as a group, average lowei by 0.3 per cent. This is due in large part to the unfavorabl- showing oJ one of the industry 1 giants hard hit by strikes. WARNING ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, .
