NEW YORK (AP)—The administration's confidence in the business outlook is shaken but unbowed. It is notably stronger than that expressed by many business and banking economists and by the faint-hearted traders in the stock market. The fiscal authorities spell out in dollars and cents their expectations of a business pickup in the making. This is the positive side of this week's revision in U. S. budget prospects. The negative side is the acceptance of the fact that business profits have declined and thus undercut January's high hopes for much bigger treasury collections this year. But to arrive at their new view, the fiscal experts start with the assumption that the bottom has been reached in the profit decline of the last six months. Earnings will have to increase rather than go on declining the rest of thi. c year and the first part of 1961 if the Treasury is to collect ii income taxes on corporate profits the total in the revised federa budget. Budget Director Maurice H Stans is betting the Treasury will He looks for a fall business pick up perhaps better than usual am also views the first half of 106 without alarm. This view calls for an increasi in the gross national product, tin total dollar volume of goods am sc-vices produced. This was run ning at a rate of $505 bilb'on o less this summer. But Stan thinks it will go to $510 billio or more by the end of the year In January the budget experts OQftPT MISS THE BIG * BIRTHDAY CELEBRAIIOtl iFAIR 0?

Now they x° /or $2 billion less than that. But many corporate economists, oting the sharp drop in profits rom the first to second quarters liis year, with only a holding ac- ion shown in the third quarter, ay profits in the final three nonths will have to pick up bet- er than now seems certain if the Yeasury is to collect $21.5 bil- ion this year. Most of the drop in profits has jc-en blamed on rising costs when competition kept prices down. A urning point is as yet unsighted. Much of the slump in business activity has been laid to corporate policy of cutting back on inven- ;ories when possible instead of addir.- to them. Alaskan in Cotton Picking Contest BLYTHEVILLE, Ark.
