I am in my late 50s, with small means. Several months ago, as my first purchases, I bought National Can, De Soto Chemical, Consolidated Royality Oil and an unlisted record company. As I follow the market, it seems these purchases were unwise. Would you suggest I sell out and .buy good dependable stocks? Interested in a safe portfolio for some income when I reach retirement. A. Most of these issues are off from their-hlghsbut-wrentbovfr their lows. All are rather speculative, relatively low priced situations, which means I don't think they are ideal first investments for a man in bis late 50s. I don't know what you paid for them, but assume it was somewhere near the top for the year. Now you ask about "good dependable growth" stocks, which would indicate you knew you were taking fair sized risks with the issues you bought although you could have done far worse. - I wish you would explain to me why a man in his late 50s, with small means decides after many years to plunge into low- priced, speculative issues. It would seem to me that if you were frightened of the market for so many years, if you felt you knew so little about it and didn't have the money to risk, your normal reaction would have been to buy top quality Issues. 'I'm sure that's the course you would have pursued if you were now buying a car for the first time. TOP STOCKS SUGGESTED I don't know how close you are to retirement, but if it's a matter of about five years, I would soft-pedal the growth angle and Kelvinator Sales Rise. 12 In '61 ' CHICAGO (AP)-Sale8 of Kelvi nator major appliances in 1962 were 12 per cent ahead of the previous year, the company said Monday. H. L. Travis, vice president-sales, said the American Motors appliance division anticipates another 10 per cent sales gain in 1962. i "Our 1961 sales momentum is carrying Kelvinator Into 1962 on a strong upbeat and we should exceed last year's performance by 10 per cent," said Travis. "If we achieve this anticipated goal, tt will be the biggest Kelvinator vol: ume year since 1956.' , Travis said this year's sales were "even better than we had predicted." v Sales in the June quarter were 13.7 per cent ahead of the' same period of 1960, September quarter sales up 18.6 per cent and last quarter sales up 24.1 per cent, begin putting your money into top grade income producers. I'm sending you a list of suggestions. Q. We have just retired.

Our broker recommended, and we bought 200 Universal Controls at 15. It is now down to about half that. Should we take a loss? . A. I suppose you could hope for some recovery, now that 1961 tax selling is over for losses. But there's no hope for that broker. Anybody who would switch retired people out of the stocks you mention into a more speculative situation ought to have his head " examined.- - Q. I have $6,000 which I will not need for three more months. Would you recommend a stock for capital gain in that period, or should I put It in the bank? A. The bank. Trying to call your shots that closely in the market can be ex tremely dangerous. RETIRING IN 65 Q. My husband will retire in 1965. We have $10,000 in E bonds Should we cash all-these In before he retires and make some other investment? A. That would be exactly the wrong time to cash them in. Assuming they , have all run full term, you would have a gain of $2,500 fully taxable as Income If you cash them in after he retires, and after your tax brack et has fallen off, you could per haps escape all tax on the rise in value of the Es. Or if you switch them directly into H bonds paying 3 per cent, you will delay paying the tax until you get out of the Hs. Even if you intend to switch into other securities, I would favor delaying any wholesale cash ing in of the Es until after retirement. Consider a piecemeal shift.

(AP DRIVE OF 1962 in a Washington hotel, 700 industry, finance, labor and with President Kennedy, Sec to kick off the "Freedom ident will close the conference with a frank report on our economic, financial foreign policies. GOING ALL OUT , It's going to be a glittering meeting designed to give maximum publicity to the Freedom Bond Drive-and with reason. For not ever in its long, proud history as a Defense Bond, a War Bond and now a Freedom Bond Jias this hardy little se: curitj faced such stiff compe tition from other savings mediums as today. A Savings Bond pays you 3 per cent interest if you hold it to maturity in J' years and 3 per cent interest if you hold it two years. This has been a fair rate of return for the small sav er during the past couple of years. . But an upheaval is occurring in the entire savings field. From coast to coast, financial institu tions are now paying savers the! highest rates in a generation. In such big cities as New York, commercial banks are paying 4 per cent on deposits left a year or more. Across the country, savings banks and savings and loan associations are paying up to 4tt per cent, even more. Some institutions are creating their own savings "bonds"' and "certificates" and aggresively promoting the 4 per cent return to matur-ity. , ' " This is competition,' rough and tough, for the Savings Bond' under any name. And although the U.S bond has advantages other mediums do not particularly the fact that you can buy them under payroll deduction plans and thereby discipline yourself into saving regularly toward your nestegg it is conceivable that the competition will slash into sales of the Freedom Bond this year. - If the drive does falter, then what, might happen? up to m What might happen Is that as in 1957 and in 1959, the rate of return on the bonds at maturity will be raised again. Under the 1959 law, the President can boost " the return on the bonds up to 4tt per cent without asking Congress' permission. "We do not contemplate any action now," insists William H. Neal, National Director of the Treasury's Savings Bond Division, and Neal properly emphasizes that while rates on savings run to 4-4tt per cent in some areas, most banks are paying much less than the average that can be earned through the nation is far below the peak. "But we are continually studying our package to find ways to improve it," Neal also 'declares. "The Treasury doesn't want to place a premium rate on the Savings Bond to draw from other sources" but it doesn't want to penalize buyers of its bonds either. So if the Freedom Bond Drive falters In the months ahead, another rate hike is probable and the President most probably would extend the rate- increase to all who already had bought bonds in 1962.- - The competitive battle for your new savings dollar between financial institutions is just beginning. On Jan. 19, the might U.S. Treasury joins in too. In 1962, the thrifty American is real: ly coming into his own.

Coash Monday granted a motion by Dr. Eugene C Keyes- to - have his election fraud conspiracy trial transferred to Wayne County. Coash acted after Leo A. Far-hat, county prosecutor, said he would consent to the change in venue because Keyes' health made it difficult for him to travel between Dearborn and Mason. The former Republican lieuten ant governor, who sought Demo- cratic nomination Ur thatfficeiirta 1960, has denied knowledge of any irregularities in petitions filed In his behalf. Keyes, freed on $1,000 bond, was indicted by a one-man grand jury investigating alleged violations of the electipn laws. The indictment contended -there were forged sig natures on some of the petitions and that some were improperly notarized. v Although consenting to the change, Farhat said he objected to a charge made by Keyes that coverage by the news media of his court appearances in- Ingham County had prejudiced potential Jurors against him. Farhat said Keyes, who stood mute oir the charge, "curried, attention with news reporters, posed for photographers and passed out some of his political publica tions," Soviets To Free Plane Belgian Airliner Carries 3 Yanks MOSCOW (AW The Soviet government agreed today to re lease a Belgian airliner , which landed Monday in Armenia while on a flight from Tehran to Brussels, Belgium, with 27 persons aboard.

SECTION BIGGER NOW Near Finish At Capitol WASHINGTON (AP) Mem bers pouring in for the reconven ing of Congress tomorrow are finding many changes in the en larged and newly scrubbed old Capitol.

The entire, job should be finished in about six weeks much of the new area already is in use.

Four Hurt In Crash Berrien Accident Report Corrected Four persons were hurt, none seriously, Saturday in a truck collision on Ice-coated Range Line road at Lake Chapln road near Berrien Springs.
