Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune BABSON'S REPORT present real estate prices. We owe the automobile .industry a debt of gratitude for our present prosperity. It is"a bellwether of general business for 1958. It is, however, like everything else, subject to the business cycle and may be a cause of the next depression. Another probable cause will be the failure of one of the big corporations whose stock is among the "30 Blue Chips" of the Dow-Jone s Industrials. STOCK MARKET OUTLOOK 41 The "bloom is off the stock market." We will have rallies and reactions during 1958, but the broad trend will be downward. This is the first time for many years that I have said this in my annual report There is too much talk about missiles, bombs, and fallout. 42. While the stock market has been going up during the past few years, the bond market has been going down.

The large fortunes made in the stock market have come from buying non-dividend-paying stocks at $5.00 a share or under. These will be the first to reach a buying level. If you are to buy these low- priced stocks, you should seek companies without too much cumulative preferred stock outstanding. This is the opposite of the "preferred" recommandation in paragraph 43!

Whitsett, research director for the L'Anguille Valley Historical Association, addressed interested members of that group Monday evening on "The Migrations of the Potawatomi Indians into the Logansport Area". In a well-presented paper, 45. Large bank balances will continue to be a good investment indents a t Northwestern University. 1958. Many savings banks are now paying 3% to 3%% interest. These balances, however, should not be looked upon as permanent investments, but rather as a means of enabling you to have cash available when common stocks reach a low level. This time may NOT come in 1958. Here again, much depends upon President Eisenhower's condition. 46. Although many corporations interested in atomic energy, Electronics, rare metals, and other growth industries will become more prosperous and profitable to investors, some of • these new companies will be wiped out. Hence, investors should be very careful in connection therewith. 47. Utility stocks should hold their own with regard to dividends and marketability. Electric power wi'll always be in demand. 48.

Our country is not now operating on the Gold Standard with his aunt Mrs R W Brookie. which was responsible for many of our national crises, but is now on Mrs Dorman Gwinn, Bringhurst, a Political Standard. Although Newton's Law of Action and Reaction has been admitted to St. Joseph's j must continue to operate, yet Congress can for a while lengthen the •• - - • prosperity cycles. This it will attempt to do even if it requires an aconomic dictator to temporarily regulate money, wages, prices, rents, taxes, and industry in general. I cannot forecast disarmament in 1958. It appears to me now, however, that the present race in guided missiles, atomic underwater navies, surprise satellites, and other tremendously destructive military equipment could utimately rob us of our freedom and turn us back to slavery unless disarmament becomes a serious goal. The Sputniks should hasten either another military world war or the elimination of world wars. Sputniks should shorten the cold war now in progress. 50. Speaking realistically, the hope of the United States and the world depends upon our spiritual relationships. Only as we grow spiritually, along with our material growth and military power, can the world be kept in balance. Therefore, my final appeal is for the support of all churches of all denominations and their ministers, priests, and rabbis who are carrying the torch of righteousness. hospital, Logansport.
