Expect 1967 Business To Be Much Like Dog Food For Teen- Age Kids- By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Jumping to conclusions: Teen-age kids would have brighter eyes and clearer completions if they ate nothing but canned dog food instead of tlie Junk they now eat. The dog food is more nuti'itious. Men who weai- plaid hats have plaid personalities. You can usually tell how the children are doing in school by the amount of dust on the family encyclopedia. .

U.S. Economy: A Runaway KE SPITE HIGH INTEREST RATES , the repeal of the 7 per cent tax credit on new investment and appeals from the President, business will apply no brakes to the thrust of expansion in 1967. . ' In a survey of 2,000 manufacturers conducted by Modem Industry magazine fewer than 20 per cent of the respondents indicated that they will definitely halt or defer spending on plant remodeling and construction—unless the tight money situation prevails far longer than it has. Most of the manufacturers were evenly divided between those who do not expect to change their 1967 plans and those who will go ahead but may decide to defer marginal projects. One manufacturer replied that his own firm's assessment of the overall state of the economy during the next few years will carry more weight than any recent moves by the government. Stated one executive vice president: "We will build If production requires, regardless of the money market." AH of which would seem to indicate that it isn't easy to checkrein an economy as vast, diversified and exuberant as tiie one we enjoy today. Three Bags Full . . . I jNCLE SAM is trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Boliv- ^ lans. If the plan succeeds, it could transform the herding of sheiep, llama and alpaca into a booming industry that could brim; in< $12 million a year and stimulate related economic activity to the tune of $30 to $50 million in a country that desperately needs it: A study made a few years ago found that Bolivia had six million sheep, six million llamas and 500,000 alpacas. Together they could produce some 8 million pounds of wool a year. However, only 10 per cent of the animals were being sheared. For centui'ies, Indians in the two-mile- high Altiplano (highlands) regions of Bolivia had been raisiing the animals, pulling or cutting only the wool they needed for their blankets and clothing. They were afraid to shear the animals because they did not tealize the wool would grow backhand often waited until one died before taking its wool. Today a program started by Utah State University under the Alliance for Progress is teaching the Altiplano Indians how to shear their herds and, by so doing, to enter into the economic life of the nation in an important way.

There are 43 days left in the year. Today's liighlight in history: On this date in. 1953, the U.S. Navy dedicated its 1.2-million- watt transmitter in the Cascade Mountains in the state of Wash-' ington. The fr^nsmitter can contact vessels all over the world without the aid of relay stations. On this date: In 1903, a treaty between the United Stales and Panama Was ratified, giving the United States control of a 10-mUe-wide strip of land for a canal. In 1935, Italy was faced with economic sanctions because of its invasion of Ethiopia. In 1939, Adolf Hitler conf^ired with the Italian and Spanish foreign ministers m Berchfesgaden. In 1943, Secretary of State Cordell Hull addi-essed a joint session of Congress on the decisions made at the Moscow foreign ministers conference. Ten years ago — Envoys of 12 NATO nations and Israel stalked out of a Moscow reception because of comments by Soviet Communist party chief Nikitai Khrushchev accusing B^itain^ France and Israel of, in his words, "having cut the throaty of Egyptians while pretendinjg to restore order." • Five years ago — The returti to the Dominican Republic of two brothers of slain dictator Rafael Trujillo prompted a warning by the United States that it would not sit idly by and allow the Trujillo family to re^ sume dictorial control of the Dominican Republic. One year ago — U.S. air cavalrymen and North Vietnamese regulars renewed their five-day- old battle for control of the la Drang Valley in South Viet Nam. - By JOHN CUNNIFT AP> Business Mews Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Wc are approaching now the season of the annual economic outlook, a time when the oracles forecast conditions • for the next year. Generally they expect 1967 to be much like 1966; A forecast that ,ialls for a continuation of existing conditions generally is the easiest to make. It is more difficult to call a turn, to forecast a reversal. And then there are other unnerving [factors. A well-known private economist was offei-ed expert legal advice that persons "pretending to foi-fioast the future" might be deemed criminals under his state's laws and fined $250 and perhaps sent to jail for six months. He continued, nevertheless, as do thousands of others, to make his forecast. The first of them, now making the rounds, generally foresee a Gross National Product of $790 billion for 1967. That would mean a rise in the total output of goods and services of $50 billion—an impressive increase. HoNi^ever, this 7 per cent increase may be a bit illusory, for for some reason, high steel 3 per ceiit of it is expected to worlters drink beer at midday disappear in. inflation. Still, it' more often than the guys who compares w^ll with about 8^2 per cent this year, of which 3'/i per cent was inflation. The oracles this year have several uncertainties before them. First, if they forecast a continuation o{ the boom they are forecasting a record upon a record. Already, the boom is the largest ever in "peacetime." A very prominent uncertainty is President Johnson. Some of them blanie the President for wrecking their forecasts of a year ago. He should have raised taxes, they say. He didn't And now they ask; Will he, and if so when, and by how much? Uncertainties such as these cause: some-forecasters to speak vaguely. There is, of course, a reason for this. Most take a tip from. the. Delphic oracle, which in ancient Greece never had to recant because-it spoke in riddles. < Those 'oracles who do speak clearly Show their daring only over a short term. Their forecasts often are specific for the first six months of the year. They plead their crystal ball is cloudy beyond that. Therefore, they 'call f6r a "slight readjustment" in the second half of the year. " ' ' Nevertheless, these economic forecasts are not the amusements they once were. More and more the corporate and government economist is a key iiian! if he ever was the fellow with the" silly charts he isn't now! He i^ consulted at the decision-making level. THE NAMEPLATE FITS at least as Alabama Democrat Lurleen Wallace tries out for sl» the governor'i desk being vacated by her husband. H U M OR In 1832. when Abraham Lincoln was the newly commissioned captain of the Bucktail -Rangers, his troop, marching in platoons, was confronted with, a gate that was tightly locked. Captain Lincoln had no idea of the proper order under such circumstances, but his wit did not desert him: "The company is dismissed for two minutes," he ordered. Then it will fall in on the other side of the fence." , Breese Flier One Of 3 Dead In Plane Crash BERUN (AP) — Soviet offi- cere returned to U.S. authorities today the bodies of three American crewmen killed when their Pan American 727 jet cargo plane crashed in Communist East Germany three miles from West Berlin "Tuesday. Thetiimover took place at an East-West border crossing point on the' road from West Berlin to Hamburg. The bodies were transferred from a Soviet military ambulance to three U.S. Army ambulances on'^ East German territory.

Few things are sadder than the sight of old-fa'shiohed gold watches hanging forlornly side by side in a pawnbroker's window. You can't help but think how each, once upon a vanished time, made some forgotten human heart tick happily. And now their white faces peek out at you through silent hands. Life gives most of us a bittersweet philosophy. This probably explains why children like milk chocolate, but elderly people prefer the tartness of sourball candy. This would be a far "hlore courteous world if it were' fashionable for men to wear dress swords on buses and subways. Civilization will end with neither a bang nor a whimper.
