Funeral services will be held the U.S. Savings and Loan League came after the Commerce Department Thursday announced for October the lowest seasonally adjusted annual rate in housing starts since 1945 — 848,000 units. This was a 20.7 per cent drop, the largest of the year, from September's level of 1.07 million imits which was the lowest since the 1960 recession. The slump in housing is considered by administration officials as one of the major soft spots in an otherwise "healthy and robust" economy. Some government economists however, have predicted an easing in the housing slump next year, "I share with others a cautious belief," Home said, "that 1967 will be a better year for the savings and loan industry than 1966. It will also be a better year for all groups involved in home building. Especially will there be an improvement for these groups as compai-ed to the last half o£ 1966." The housing slump has been blamed on a scarcity of funds and high interest rates. Some segments of the savings and loan industry, however, , have said that the administra- Ition will seek to roll back interest rates further.

All four firms have reported lagging sales and declines in profits. Tiie industry, a key force in the U. S. economy, was jolted Friday when General Motors revealed it would cut its auto output by 8.1 per cent. GM, the nation's largest auto builder, said the cutback would start with a 3.7 per cent reduction in December and an additional 4.4 per cent in January. An undetermined number of workers will be laid off assembly lines as 11 of its 23 assembly plants around the nation reduce their output, GM said. "These are rugged days for General Motors," the firm's board chairman, Frederic G. Donner, said only last month. But Lee A, lacocca, group vice president of Ford Motor Co., said this week: "Nobody is singing the blues around here. There is a pause in the market, but it is nothing serious. There is uncertainty about a tax increase and about the Viet Nam war. We know full well we are running behind the industry's 1965 sales record, hut this still winds up as the second best year in automotive history, and there is nothing to get alarmed about" he said. Ford, Chrysler and American Motors confirmed they are lowering production quotas for this month. One industiy ti'ade paper said the auto makers have ti-immed 58,000 cars from this month's production sciied- ules. Spokesmen for Ford and Chrysler said their companies have not yet decided how many cars to build in December or January. But a continuation of lagging sales—the firms report- Yachts Burn In Florida By KAT BABTLETT FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A wind-whipped blaze that shot flames high into the air and leaped from one luxury yacht to another destroyed about a dozen expensive sea- craft at a river marina today. Dozens of other boats were damaged. Authorities said about 12 — Including a lOO-footer — burned to the waterline. Three persons fled a yacht and were treated at a hospital for bums. As many as 50 fkefighters battled the flames, which raged out of control for three hoiu:s. "It was one of the worst fires I've ever seen, but we couldn't see anyone on the boats," said Lt Jim Brown of the Fort Lauderdale Fire Department, an 11- year veteran of firefighting. "What made it bad was that gasoUne tanks caught fire," he said. At thnes, flamea could be seen six miles away. The fire erupted shortly after midnight at the Broward Marina, where >yealthy northern yachtsmen keep their craft during the winter months. The marina Is on the south fork of the New River. Although some owners use the yachts as their winter homes, fire and police officials said they doubted that anyone was on board. Some of the boats were in the marina for repairs. Damage could not be estimated at once, but was expected to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The cause of the fire was not known. IN MT. V.

LUCI JOHNSON NUGENT SAYS Curiosity Seekers Bothered Newlyweds ed sales in the first 10 days this month fell 5.6 per cent behind last year — and bulky inventories apparently would cause lower production quotas at all the firms. GM said it eventually would trim more than 1,600 cars a day from its current daily production of about 20,000 autos. It said the cutback would start Dec. 5 at four assembly plants in four states. Previously scheduled overtime will be eliminated, GM said, and the daily rate of output will be reduced.
