The fact is that 33 -billion dollars worth of instalment credit outstanding is helping our economy go 'round this year. There's one rule to remember when you must borrow money: "Borrow from the best." And if you can't get a bank loan, go to a licensed small loan office. These small loan offices are restricted as to what they may charge. No investigation fee, brokerage fee or service charges.

And I'm sure you'll agree that sex is not of limited interest." Houseman is a large man with a large background. On Broadway, he has capered with such diverse companions as Shakespeare, Ibsen and Orson Welles. In Hollywood, he produced 14 inovies. including "Julius Caesar" and "Lust For Life." He has served as an English and drama prof at Vassar and UCLA. For the past two summers, Houseman has labored as artistic director of the American Shakespeare Festival and Academy at Stratford, Conn. "The taste of the American people is higher than is generally assumed," says Houseman. "You can ta'ke our Shakespeare operation at Stratford as a good 'example—we had marvelously successful runs. Emphasis On 'Lively' "There's no reason really why we shouldn't attract a good audience here. too. The emphasis of this TV program is going to be on the 'lively' part of the title— we've got one show planned around some Hemingway short stories, one show will be devoted to jazz, another to the 'Nutcracker' ballet, others to revivalism, Hollywood and Xew York." . Also on Houseman's calendar:a show based on two Ray Bradbury stories set in 2,000 a.d., an Easter Miracle play, a piece based on John Brown, an Agnes DeMille dance show, a movie about Martha Graham, a show about jazz pianist Jelly Roll Morton and another about American composer Norman Dello Joio. The only unfortunate thing about Houseman's TV show is that it will overlap NBC-TV's "Omnibus" in its Sunday time slot. "I don't approve of a cultural contest between 'Omnibus' and us.' mourns Houseman, "but there FOQDBIUS TAKE ADVANTAGE Of THE SAVINGS OFFERED FROZEN FOOD LOCKER ^ Wt, KAVt A lOCKIX K» TOU «M5 Hanna St. there was considerable discussion ! about how North and South could .have escaped the ax. South contended that North should have seen the danger and bid one heart right over the double while the others thought that South should have run out to one diamond when East left the double in. To. start with, North's pass was the correct bid. He did have some fear that the one club doufcle would slay in but it is unusual for this to happen and a run-out to one heart or one diamond might have been the start of real trou ble. So East's pass left South in a tough spot. He chose to stay in his trouble at one club but really should have tried to get out by — Indus i l!3 >d dul g one diamond.

Bowman addressed himself directly to the psychiatric science, which contains most of the strict adherents to "the reality principle," through the technical journal of the American Psychiatric Association. He was not in agreement, he said most flatly, "with those who believe that good mental health must be based upon realistic conceptions of environment and self." In short, academic people "like other practical men of affairs, accept the reality principle only so. Make dishwashing easier by far as it is practical to do so." But take love, he said.

And high on the cuff, too. Among us, we owe 43 billion dollars, nearly 3 billion more than last year. But even as we sign lOTTs, ire salt away cash. Our savings this year add up to well over 800 billion dollars. Installment credit outstanding accounts for about 33 billion dollars of the total personal debt. Of this, commercial banks have 12 billion 300 million dollars; sales finance companies (automobiles, appliances) have loaned 9 billion 300 million dollars; small loan companies, or consumer finance companies, have around 3.2 billion dollars this year, according to the National Consumer Finance Association. One Family In Six The 10,745 small loan offices around the nation, operated by 1,- 5oO firms, claim one out. of every six families for a customer and they look for a 12 to 14 per cent growth in volume next year. Is there danger in this rising installment credit spiral? Many economists believe it is doing no harm since nobody will continue to extend new credits if repayments do not come in on schedule. Why do we borrow? About one-third of the 16 million loans made by small loan companies this year are for debt consolidation, where the customer borrows to pay off a flock of bills and is left with one debt. Medical and dental expenses account for 11 per cent .of the small loans; 8 per cent goes for car purchases and upkeep. Clothing accounts for 6 per cent of the loans, as does travel and vacations. Many people borrow to buy things even, though they have the cash. They feel they'll never save the money again once they touch their savings. So they take out a loan. Installment Credit Risei Installment credit also is rising because we're urged to use credit for just about everything. Under- takers now have plans for prepaid funerals. They call it, "p«y now, go later." The small loan companies ar« growing right along with the use of credit. They now employ about 55,000 people and have an annual payroll of about 250 million dollars. Our' five largest consumer, finance companies, Household, Beneficial, Seaboard, American Investment .Co. and Family Finance, have a total capital fund of $402,706,510. Household Finance, the largest, .had 2,261,000 loans last year totaling 901 million dollars. Despite some ads that say "low rates," small loan companies usually charge low rates when compared to loan sharks. Utalike th« loan sharks, small loan companies are bound by law to give you a fair deal.
