WEDNESDAY, APRIL it, 1996 BLYTHETTLLB (ARK.) COCTtlER PAGE SEVEN DespiteSteady Growth US Corporations Map Still Larger Expansion By 8AM DAWSO.V NEW YORK (AP) — America still suffers from growing pains. Gigantic as almost everything already is — you talk about billions today while still trying to comprehend millions — there are services and goods you want more of right now and others you're told you'll want more of soon. The pains show up first in these inadequate services or goods, later in the search for money to meet the new or expected demands, and finally in the mounting paper work Just to keep track of the bigger operations. American Telephone & Telegraph is so convinced that more people" are going to, want to talk more to others in more places that it is the first corporation to announce a tWo-billion-dollar outlay in one year for expansion. Only One of Many , But it's only one of many corporations and industries putting up huge sums either to keep up with their customers or to beat out their rivals for markets, here now or expected in .the years ahead. And the search for new sources of raw materials to feed America's widening maw will take still more stacks of money or credit. Big and little companies spending to develop new iron de posits or to find ways to produce iron more economically from old er ore bodies. They are bringing ID more aluminum and copper More Steel Mills They plan more steel mills to meet the greater demand and replace ancient furnaces. They talk of more newsprint. The oil industry is looking years ahead in its search for new fields. And industry looks for more water, either in conserving present sources or experimenting with taking the salt out of the seas. The airlines are having their financial growing pains. They are looking for stacks of dough to ease their way into the jet age. Individuals aren't immune. As Americans' standards of living grow higher, the quest for funds to keep up with the Joneses' or to keep up with the new models of the auto and gadget makers can be painful indeed.
