The National Assn. of Manufactures, Meany said, opposed as socialistic every achievement by the trade labor movement in the last 75 years.

Owe 36 Billion While taking on this new load, Americans are expected to pay off about 40 billion dollars of instal- ment debt for earlier purchases At the end of 1959 they are expected still to owe some 36 billion dollars, compared with an estimated 33 billion now. Norris A. Wildman, president of Beneficial Finance Co. of New York, points out that many consumers have cleaned up their in- stalment payments this year and have more available for cash or time buying during the Christmas season. Rising totals of personal income after taxes makes the consumer a good target for mer- the!chants now and for the big ticket item dealers in the months ahead. Businessmen also buy on time. One example cited by Edwin B. Meredith, executive vice president of Standard Financial Corp., is the use of time payments by industry for the installation of automatic cafeterias in factories. He says the number of such cafeterias doubled during 1958 and the volume of food served workers almost frebled over 1957. Are American consumers good credit risks? "The U.S. consumer is an excellent credit manager and will continue to discharge his respon- as "a little ward heeler from De-! sibilities promptly, as he has in the past," says Dietz.

Worth, Tex., is to fly the plane. Toilet Shoots Wet Cement and No FoolirV BRENHAM, Tex. (AP) - Paul Kasprowicz, 5, told his mother the commode was "shooting up like a volcano." She went and looked, then phoned City Engineer B. P. Greenwade, that wet cement was pouring out of the bathroom fixture. Meanwhile, workers forcing cement into a Santa Fe railroad dump couldn't understand why so much mix was needed. Once everyone got together, they found the pressure behind the cement had broken a sewer line and then backed up the line into the nearby Kasprowicz house. Psychoanalysts Avoid Using Leather Couch haven't broken the bank at Monte Carlo. Monaco has an army of only 65 men. Robert Q. Lewis says a bikini is something that makes a girl look cooler — and a man look longer. Most psychoanalysts now avoid leather couches—they're too slippery for nervous patients.
