WEDNESDAY. MAY 4, 1955 •LTOttTILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK mm Talk of Overexpanded U. S. Industry Now Appears Outdated By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — All that talk about American industry being overexpanded — is it outdated already? Some top industrialists are say-$ — ing so and calling for further increases in the capacity 01' mills and factories to keep in step with the increased consumer demand they foresee. Just one year ago it was fashionable in some circles to say that the great postwar spurt of build- ng new plants and buyng new equipment had given the United States a production capacity well in excess of current civilian consumer demand. It would be quite some time, they said, before civilian demand— if unsupported by an additional huge defense production—would catch up. More Expansion But now plans for future expansion are being announced by the corporate leaders 'in many Industries. The basic industry steel is a good example. Between 1950 and 1954 it increased its capacity by one fourth. Last year industry leaders were saying that present capacity of 124,300,000 tons a year should be enough for at least five years more. , This week the nation's steel mills are set to turn out 2,328,000 tons, according to the American Iron & Steel institute. This would top the record set in March 1953. And today at least fiye of the top men in the Industry are on record as saying another round of building more mills and upgrading old equipment must be started. The reason ,:the steady increase in the nation's population and— more importantly—the increase in the standard of living. Steelmen believe Americans will be buying more cars, more appliances, building more offices, stores and homes, more bridges, schools and highways. More Capacity Benjamin F. Pairless, in his swan song as he steps down from the chairmanship of the board of U.S. Steel, says his company to keep in step must add more than one million tons of new capacity each year. Eugene G. Grace, chairman of Bethlehem Steel, the nation's second largest producer, says his company should add eight million tons of capacity in the next 10 years. E. T. Weir, chairman of National Steel, says the industry is using all of its first-class equipment today and now faces the problem of .further development. W. W. Sebald, president o£ Avm- co Steel, and Avcry C. Adams, president of Pittsburgh Steel, join in the call for another round of expansion. This expansion' of basic steel production capacity will be accompanied by upgrading facilities for making finished products. Cnpe Horn was named after Hoorn, a town in The Netherlands, by its discoverer, Schouten, n Dutch navigator.
