Too bad, but if you had followed this advice from Eldon A, Grimm of Walston & Co, you could have established your tax loss and gotten in on the recovery too. "Suppose, for example, you originally purchased 100 shares of X V Z lit 5T.'Now the .quotation is down to 21. So, you go into the market immediately and buy another 100 shares at 21. Then you wait 31 calendar days (to avoid a wash sale penalty) and liquidate the original 100 bought at a lofty price. You still retain 100 shares and will be protected in case the market quotation for XYZ recovers at some date in the future." The final day of the year for his so-called "doubling-up" process figures out to be Nov. 28, Grimm notes. Although recent markets have not treated too kindly some of the so-called glamor issues in a general downgrading of growth factors, there have been • intermittent signs of accumulation in those issues whose potentials are clear and practical enough to wager hard cash on their fulfillment, says Thomson & McKinnon.

Gas Well Fire Still Rages In Waters Of Bay GALVESTON (UPI)— Workmen vere preparing loday to drill n lirectional well in an effort to stem a $300,000 gas well burning nit of control in Galveston Bay. The 13,000-foot well, owned by -Uimble Oil and Retg. Co., caught 'ire Sunday afternoon after blow- ng out while workmen tried to close it off, No one was injured. Nearby wells were shut down and Coast Guard boats patrolled the area, keeping other boats a mile away from the fire. The well was in Redfish reef field about two miles northeast of the Houston Ship Channel. John S. Bell, Houston area manager for Mumble's southwest region, said the fire may burn out before the directional well is completed. The directional well will cost more than $300,000 and take aO to 90 days to complete, Bell said, "The burning well may remain on fire nil that time," Bell said, 'But then again it may burn itself out tomorrow," Famed Houston firefighter .Red Aclair was called in for consultation by Humble. Bell said conventional firefighting methods were impossible because the source of the fire is below the water line. What effect will all this talk have on children? Will they conclude from their parents' conversation that there's not much point in working hard at schools, or otherwise preparing themselves for a highly uncertain future? "Children are far more likely to be affected by how adults behave than by what they say. Parents who are really frightened will .communicate their jitters to their children even if they never mention war in their presence. But if children sense that their parents are taking the whole thing calmly, and going ahead with life in a normal way, they'll probably do the same, regardless of the scare - words that may be gibly tossed around in their presence." Frank said the greatest psychological danger of too much talk about nuclear war is th«t it may weaken the determination o'f adults to avoid such a conflict, "If we go on talking blithely about 70 million casualties, and coolly estimating whether 10 or 22 per cent of the people in a certain area might survive, we may get hardened to prospects from which rational human beings should recoil in horror," he said. er. told the police that he had left home at 5:30 p.nv Saturday to work on some modernistic paintings in his workshop.
