FRIDAY, JANUARY »,H*. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWB PAGE PIV» The Stock Market 'Great Bull Market' Reflects Strong Business Confidence Police Seek Clues in Mystery Of Slain Financier Rubenstein (La»t In By RELMAN MORIN NEW YORK (AP) — When you read about "the greatest bull market in history," you are looking at a story that goes beyond Wall Street. The high averages and zooming prices reflect many factors. Sure, some people are simply gambling. "Institutional buying" of stocks by big ganizations has increased. And there Is the argument that the market today is only now catching up with the true values of many stocks and bonds. But the figures reflect more than that. They, represent a massive chunk of confidence in at least the immediate future—and to some, the long-term outlook—for the whole American economy. Since nobody can read the future, the only thing you can do is look at some present bases ,the trends, and make your own projections. For example, the population today is an estimated 163 million. By 1975, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates, it will climb to 200 million. How many more pairs of shoes will the factories have to turn out then? How many more miles of textiles? How many more radios, refrigerators, automobiles? How much more food? Housing Take the question of housing. Herbert Abraham, chairman o' the Ruberoid Co., recently wrote: "Since the current rate of family formation is about 100,000 a year, it is apparent that about 700.000 new units must be added annually, if our housing standards are to remain at present levels. "And about 300,000 houses 'wear out' and are demolished annually, bringing the total basic need to about one million units per year.'," The gross national product for 1954 is estimated at 350 billion dollars. (GNP means the total value of all goods and services produced.) In his economic message, President Elsenhower called for a GNP of 500 billion by 1965. The National Assn. of Manufacturers estimates 700 billion by 1975. Sound like overreaching? Here's t sober statement from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce: "There has been a more or less continuous upward trend in the output of American Industry. , Various estimates of the rate of increase in production have put it at 3 or 4 per cent more per annum." "Wanter" A powerful factor In the whole staggering picture is this : The average American IB a "wanter." Call It keeping up with the Joneses if you like, but he is forever wanting Something, new or better than what he has, whether it's a house, an automobile, a can opener, or a wider TV screen. . He will put himself In hock to get it too. And then work like fury to keep up the installment payments. His wants are limited only by his buying power and credit. And h'e has the buying power. Then there's "research." A New York Stock Exchange estimate puts the figure for industrial research and development' in 1954 at about four billion dollars—adding that that Is 345 per cent greater than the sum spent in 1941. A steady stream of new or improved products are coming out of the laboratories every year. They create new jobs and new wealth. Tor example. Du Pont spent eight years and 25 million dollars developing a synthetic fibre. Mark- trolled tape. etable now, it has created 2,800 Jobs in the plant. Doubtless you have heard the word "automation." Maybe you have seen whole plants operated by machines. Or a drill press con- by a piece of perforated South Catching Up Now look around the map of the United States. Barely more than 20 years ago, the Southern states were described as the nation's "No. 1 economic problem." Today, with research and new Industries, the South is rapidly catching up with the rest of the, country in spite of the general boom. energy went to se» last week. The atomic age in industry appears to be on the near horizon. It has been said that this will bring about "a second Industrial revolution." The first one changed the face of the earth. \ So the future stretches away, apparently limitless, unimaginably brilliant, barely glimpsed in all its immense potentialities. The "greatest bull market In his. lory," In some degree, mirrors this. But over the stock market today still hangs the black shadow of 1929 and the greatest crash in history. A glorious economic future may A submarine powered by atomic be ours, but It is not Vouchsafed NEW YORK I* — Police sought today to piece together the mys- terloiu life and death of murdered Serge Rublnatein, Russian - born playboy, financier and convicted draft dodger. Rubinstein, 4«, waa found «l«in yesterday on a bedroom floor of MB palatial 5th Avenue mansion. He had been trussed with Venetian blind cord, and several layers of surgical tape were around his throat and mouth. The face bore several abrasions but the rest of his body was unmarked. After a three-hour autopsy last night, the medical examiner's office reported: "Rubinstein died of manual strangulation." The ornate bedroom on the third floor of the six-story house had been ransacked but police could find nothing missing. A safe In the 20-foot-square room was untouched. Authorities questioned three persons, Including brunette Estelle to us," the President told the Congress last week. "We shall achieve it only by wise management of our national household." Gardner, a model, who said she had dinner with Rubinstein Wednesday night and returned with him to hLs home. Rubinstein's body was found by the family butler William Morter at 8:30 a.m. yesterday. Also In the house at the time of the slaying were the dead man's 78-year-old mother Stella: his aunt Genla Forrester, 82; a woman cook, and two parlormaids. The home was barred and locked and there was no sign of forcible entry. Police Commissioner Francis W. H. Adams, who personally knew the dark-haired, stocky victim as a man of "tremendous strength and vitality," was asked If more than one person might have taken part In the murder. "There'« a possibility," Adams replied. A boy wonder'In Wall Street, a dashing figure In the continental capitals of the world, Rubinstein served V/i years in prison for draft dodging In World War II. He was ordered deported In 1952 and his appeals from. the order still are pending.
