Last year Jamiary wasn't as good as usual and tipped businessmen off that the steep slide into the recession trough was just ahead. A couple of years back January was better than usual, riding the boom that took its toll in a rising cost of living. This year January is behaving in its normal, healthy way: Wage Scales Higher More persons out of work than GOP TROUBLE last fall although industrial output is up. Many wage scale* higher but take horn* pay for most workers down because of the increased withholding for higher social security taxes. Debt conscious Americans trying to clear up their Christmas bills and still take advantage of the clearance sales. The rise in unemployment in December and January is unpleasant but expected — and largely seasonal.

UR - The Navy has a new rocket engine which it say* can land man on the moon—gently—and bring him back alive. The engine was dislcosed Sunday by the Naval Ordnance Test Station here along with another development: a safe new way of packaging dangerous fuels that scientists say will eliminate long countdowns. Douglas D. Ordahl, head of the station's missile propulsion division, told a news conference "we hope to make a test vehicle within the next i i z months." Adlai Assails Sluggish Tempo of America WASHINGTON MB — America has been left on the defensive by its own sluggish tempo, Adlai E. Stevenson says. The former Democratic presidential nominee told an audience Sunday night that Soviet leaders, r rom top to bottom, are convinced ,he whole, human race is destined ;o become one in Communist brotherhood. Stevenson, who toured the Soviet Union last summer, said "the Soviet Russians believe in their ruth. . . they, not we, are firing .he shots that are heard round the world — and also the satellites -hat orbit above it. . .their tempo s dynamic and ours sluggish- even, I think, to ourselves." He said the Communists "show a worldwide concern which is argely lacking among the men of he West. The whole human race s their horizon." Stevenson said that if America cannot rediscover the real purpose and director of its existence, it will not be free.

Andrew F. Schoeppel (R-Kan). 8 Freshmen The dispute has been caused by efforts to give at least one major committee assignment to the three freshmen Republican senators — Kenneth B. Keating of New York, Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania and Winston L. Prouty of Vermont. Traditionally, senators with the longest service or seniority get first choice at a committee TB- lancy. Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B, Johnson of Texas has partially junked this idea within his party in recent years by getting sach freshman Democrat at least one major committee plact. Give Up Seat Republicans at the close-door session said Dirksen even offered to give up his seat on the Appropriations Committee if this would ;nd the deadlock. However, sev- ;ral Republicans with two or more years' service said they would :laim it. So his compromise offer was withdrawn.

Building Up Stocks The auto industry Is building up stocks, as it does in a normal January. It still has to prove the sales appeal of the new models. Sales are good for January, but the big test lies ahead when dealers are fully stocked and the snow is off the highways. Construction, in spite of the weather, continues to be a shining star in the economy. Housing starts to continue to increase, in contrast to a year ago when'the home building industry was groggy. Construction contract awards foreshadow greater activity in the spring. Good Nor Bad Mostly, though, January is shaping up as being neither very good or very bad for business. fx On the one Jjand, this has allayed some of the fears tttat a runaway boom, egged on by the stock market's enthusiasm, might lead to a bust. On the other, it has allayed fears that the vigor of the recovery In It*, early stages might be borrowing from future demand and might peter out about now, leaving the economy in the doldrums. The stock market and international affairs have furnished the month with most of its financial headlines. • February and March could be more decisive months for business, but having January back to being its normal self again augurs well.
