Steel industry sets records in 1964; Production to total 127 million tons : By BOB VOELKER : PITTSBURGH (AP) — The steel industry set a string of tecords in 1964, the industry's second good year in a row. I Production zoomed to. a new mark that was expected to total about .127 million tons when final figures were in. This would easily surpass the old record of i!7 millioa tons in 1955. Output in 1963 totaled 109 million tons. ; Profits were up for most companies. It appeared some producers would reap record incomes for the year. ; 'And steel men, who have been spending money on new plants Kellogg and equipment almost with a passion, reportedly plunked down $1.8 billion for capital improvements in 1964, another record. But some steel observers say the significant thing of 1964 wasn't the production record, the profits or the spending, but rather the realization that the once-retreating industry was moving ahead again. For the first time, in years, steelmen said they detected signs of success in a long-term struggle against'competing materials and the. steel industry's own old age. The brightening picture stems from the adoption of new production and processing ideas through the spending of millions upon millions of dollars for modernization — a vast, research-oriented program that seems destined to carry the in dustry to sparkling heights in the years to come. The big surge dates back to 1960, the year the record 116-day steel strike ended. It picked up additional steam following the epic clash with the government over a steel price increase in 1962. Pushed along by a, bustling national economy, steel con Crouqettes 7 oz. box Baker's Peanut Butter Chips 6 oz. box 2 for Hi-C 4f» 41 i\/\ Belly Crocker «4» 41 /%/% Fruit Drinks $100 Layer Cakes $100 • (All Flavors) I 46 oz. can ; 3 for m Packfi«?r> 3 for • Package 3 for Kellogg Rice Krispies > oz. box Maxwell House Instant Coffee 6 oz. jar 20c OFF Wagner's Orange Drink $100 Quart 4 for 1 Hipolile Mar'low Creme $100 Pint 3 for 1 Brookdale Chum Salmon cau 49 tabby Fruit' Cocktail $100 303 can 4 for 1 NORTH IOWA FOOD STORES Listed Below For These Specials!

The five biggest steel companies showed an over-all profit increase of 27 per cent in the first three quarters of 1964 compared to the same period of 1963. Steel production clipped aiong at a remarkably even level in the year just ended, a result of no threat of labor trouble and good business conditions generally. The only dark spot in the industry was another increase in foreign steel imports. The American Iron and Steel Institute estimated that imports hit a record 6 million tons, up 500, 000 tons from 1963. The AISI said American steel exports increased a little over t he 1963 figure of 2.2 million tons. With the exception of possible labor trouble, steel people generally fee] l%5 will be another good year for the industry. Production is expected to remain high. The AISI said capital spending will equal 1964's mark. The United Stcelworkcrs Union would be free to strike the basic steel industry May 1 if no contract agreement is reached by then. \ •Pi^^^^^^^^M^^HMI^B^VBH At your theaters (Tim« furnished by theaters) CECIL - "Th« Yoong Lovtrs" closes Wednesday, 1:15, 3:10, 5:10, 7:10, 9:10.
