TUESDAY, NOYBMBBER fl, U. S. Output of Goods, Services Within Five Per Cent of 1955 Goal -' WASHINGTON,. Nov, 21. fr Tb« nation': total output of goods ;«nd Mrvlcef it within about five •percent of a goal President Tru • man once set for 1955. And It's (rowing fast. An annual rate of 1284,300,0(10,000 upsurge from the preceding quar t«r of this year after a $14,000.000,.000 upsurge from the pvecedlng V quarter, the Commerce Department ; reported yesterday. .•Last January, President Truman ••poke of a prosperity goal of a "'1300,000,000,000 gross national pro- i duct "within five years." Gross na; tlonal product Is a term economists -use to sum up the output of all ' goods and services. The 1254,300,000,000 rate of the 'July-September period may not be as close to the President's goal as it seems at first glance, however. , Mr. Truman specified he meant $300,000,000,000 worth of goods and Mrvlces measured,by the prices prevailing last January. The gross national product has spurted $30,500,000,000 since then, but a big part of the dollar-volume gain can be attributed to price increases. The Commerce Departmest said that the swelling output, was brought about - largely by record consumer spending. Consumers went on a splurge In 1950's third quarter, toss- Ing their money on retail counters at a rate of $198,400,000,000 a year. Consumer spending shot up between the second and third quarters, the' greatest Jump ever registered In so short a period. The rest of the advance. It said, wu .attributable to an increased volume of purchases, itself produced by "fear of subsequent supply difficulties and of further price increases." ; . The Department said military spending showed no particular advance in the July-September period, and the bulk of the expansion In U. S. output was in goods for civilian use.

Meteorite Hunt Called Futile By Scientist BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWg ObHuarhi WINSLOW, Ariz. fAP)— Search for the giant meteorite that fell in northern ' Arizona 20,000 to 50,000 years ago can oe abandoned. Dr. H. H. Ninlnger, noted authority on meteorites, believes. The scientist, who owns the meteor crater museum near here, said no huge meteorite 'exists. He believes It exploded after striking the ground leaving no single mass of material. For years scientists have been walking around, over and in the crater looking for the meteor, and, he said, all the while they were actually "walking on it" In the form of metallic dust scattered over the area. His finding is based on n study of the minute meteoric fragments found in and for 100 miles around the 4,150-fcot crater. "These little fragments, some of them only fine dust, are spherical," he said. "This Indicates they condensed from vapor— which In turn would indicate the meteorite exploded, creating the crater." Dr. Ninlnger said the mass that struck the earth undoubtedly weighed several thousand tons, but he discounted previous beliefs It may have been nearly a mile in diameter. His estimate is closer to 150 feet. A recently translated paper on a meteor that fell in Siberia in 1947 Indicates the same thing happened there, Dr. Ninlnger said, and added any meteorite more than 10 feet In diameter would probably explode upon striking the earth. Meteor crater is a major tourist attraction in northern Arizona. FLOOD (Continued from page it Sparks, Nev.
