Eight Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Says Communists May Adopt Installment Buying System * • •» / NEW YORK (UP) — The Communists may use a cornerstone of the capitalistic system to help cure their economic ills. The Russians are reported considering the introduction of a limited form of installment buying, the installment plan, paying the debt in equal monthly amounts. Latest figures showed that Americans were "in hock" to .the tune of 40 billion dollars. Nobody was overly concerned about the debt because Americans have es- which is about as American as In- tablished an excellent repayment dians, ice cream cones and hot dogs. The unique buy now-pay later plan, which roared in with the 1920s, has become an accepted part of American economic life and has spread to Western Europe. This system of borrowing for the future to buy things today explains in part why Americans own more automobiles, washing machines, television sets and homes than anyone else in the world. Americans-are even sending their children through college and going on round-the-world vacations on record. Reports from Russia indicated that the Communists are looking into the advantages of making installment buying available for the Russian consumer, whose standard of living is below that of his American counterpart. installment buying, if adopted by the Communists, would represent a major concession. They long have denounced this form of retailing as "decadent capitalism." A. W. Zelomek, head of the international statistical bureau, told the United Press the Russian change Mayflower II Moving Ahead of New Breeze PLYMOUTH, Mass. (UP) — A vagrant sea breeze found the becalmed Mayflower II today and sent her plunging off toward a triumphant welcome.

She was expected to rendezvous with dozens of private yachts near the lightship sometime today. Today marked th e 51st day at ?ea for the 180-ton Mayflow-;.- But she was still i favorite to eclipse the 66-days required by the origi- na". Pilgrim ship for the Atlantic crossing.

Zelomek, a visiting professor at the University of Virginia Graduate School of Business Administration, said installment buying raises living standards by making it possible for people to acquire things they otherwise would have to forego if they'had to pay cash on the barrel. "In addition," he said, "experience has shown that a man will work harder to pay off his debts. As a result, installment buying stimulates both consumption and production."

Artist, statesman, writer, craftsman—each must await the years for the maturity of his talent and for the verdict of his judges. And as it is in the affairs of men, so it is in the •world of commerce. Nothing great was ever created suddenly—whether the product be that pf an individual or of an organization. Here, most certainly, is the very genesis of the unique position which Cadillac currently occupies in the hearts and minds of the world's motorists. Since the first Cadillac car made its appearance more than fifty-five years ago, it has always been created to a single objective: to make it as fine a motor car as it is possible to produce. And, without question, the mission and the accomplishment have been one and the same. The goodness of Cadillac has, in fact, been so apparent over that lengthy span that the Cadillac name stands today as an accepted synonym for quality wherever highways exist. The pretenders have come—and they have gone. For time is an exacting taskmaster—and only the principles that have created the great Cadillac car and only the devotion that has given it being have been equal to the challenge. Never has this fact been more deeply etched in the public consciousness than it is during the present automotive year. If you have yet to take the wheel of a 1957 Cadillac, you should hesitate no longer to visit your authorized Cadillac dealer. Waiting for you in his showroom Is proof beyond doubt that Cadillac is—in fact as in reputation—the Standard of the World! VISIT YOUR AUTHORIZED CADILLAC DEALER
