Pictures of Paris Familiar Types Show In Office Collections A STURDY HAND—Recognize this scene in Paris? Well, maybe not at such a close range, but it is familiar to most Parisians if they're curious at all. Turn to News Staff Photo). Page 2 for the correct answer. (Paris BUSINESS MIRROR Stocks, Interest Changes Show Up in Saving Habits By HAL, BOYLE NEW YORK WV - One of the great ways to kill company time in the modern business office is to take up a collection for somebody. In the old days you took up a collection for someone only when he died or retired. Today any excuse will do. You kaka up a collection for a fellow if his sister-in-law develops a head cold or his son gets bad marks in high school algebra. "Did you hear about poor old Charlie's trouble?" someone askS' And before you can find out what's ailing Charlie, three eager beavers are already going around the office to raise a fund for him. If you have ever taken up a collection ourself, the following types will surely be familiar: 1. The selfish realist—"I could drop dead in my swivel chair and nobody would even me a petunia," he grumbles. 2. The fatalist—"Dont bother telling me what the collection is for," he says. "Just tell me how much you want from me." 3. The artful postponer—He h-js a reputation for being • generous, but the truth is he hasn't actually contributed a nickel to an office collection in the last 15 years. His stock line: "Gee, I sure want to be in on this one, but I don't have any change with me. Be sure and look me up tomorrow. Now don't forget!" 4. The helpful soul — He makes no move toward his wallet, but has a lot of sound and sage advice,on how you could do a better job of taking up the collection. "You'll get more if you wait until after lunch before hitti n g everybody up," he says. "People give more on a full stomach." 5. The topper—"You think old Charles got troubles?" he demands- "Let me tell you what real troubles are.' 1 If you spend 45 minutes listening to all the woes of his life, he will then grudgingly contribute a dime to your collection. 6. The tycoon—"I'll be. glad., to contribute $5—that is, if you honor credit cards," he says. "! haven't touched cash in years." 7. The big talking tightwad— "I'd like to oblige you but I can't," he says. "I am against group philanthropy. With m e its strictly a matter of principle." 8. The double dealer—"Lend me two bucks and I'll be glad to contribute one," he offers. You give him the two bucks and you never see either of them again. This guy actually makes a profit in every office collection. 9. The boss—It is awfully easy to identify him. If you're collecting quarter contributions, he's the guy who always hands you a $20 bill- 10. The rival—If you hand me a sheet of paper explaining why you are taking up a collection for good old Charlie, he whips a sheet of paper out of his pocket explaining why he is taking up a collection for good old Joe, who has even worse troubles.

Spectators Cheer New Play/Becket' By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-Effecls of the changes in stock market atmosphere and of the drop in interest rates under impact of the easy money policy are showing up today in the habits of American investors and savers. Even the much praised and self satisfied sophisticated investor is rediscovering charms in some of last year's wallflowers, A lot of glamor dust has been shaken out of the stock market s year. Investors are finding it less appealing as a road to quick riches. And there is less talk now about stocks as a hedge against inflation- The big drop in interest rates in the short-term and medium- term securities and investments have returned status to some of the slow but sure ways of saving, where the interest rate is less fluctuating. The change in saving habits shows up in many ways today— Past Presidents Honored at Guild Anniversary Tea Pnris News Service HONEY GROVE — Past presidents of Weslcyan Service Guild of McKeniic Methodist C h u r -h were honored at •& seated tea, in observance of the 20th anniversary of the organization's f o und- ing.

Starring .Laurence; Olivier and Anthony Quinn, the production which arrived Wednesday night at the St. James.Theater contributes impressive grandeur to the Broadway season. Through an amazing 17 curtain calls, spectators cheered its jolting impact. ;: From a scarlet page of history, French playwright Jean Anouilh (in translation by Ludenne Hill- takes a narrative of power politics and human conflict. Becket, played by Sir Laurence, is the frivolous man who in midlife was thrust into religious authority and has since been remembered as the martyred Saint Thomas of Canterbury. TV HIGHLIGHTS in saving bond sales, in mutual und sales, in regular monthly urchases of common stocks, in cpayment of instalment loans. It isn't a set thing. But it is he reversal of previous trends hat interests lenders and borrowers alike. And the change also hcds light on economic trends and business prospects. For five months in a row sales f U. S. savings bonds have been higher and redemptions lower han in the like months of 1959. The U. S. Treasury reports cash-ins of savings bonds in Sep- ember were 16 per cent less than a year ago. The September sale of E and H Bonds topped the year-ago figure by 13 per cent. The Treasury savings bond chief is especially interested in .he recent gains in sales of the tiigher denominations of the aonds. He thinks this means the sophisticated investor is being attracted now. The reason: The 3 3 ,i per cent rate of return on these bonds now equals or tops the yield available on comparable medium-term Treasury issues traded in the open market. A year ago the market yield on Ihese marketable issues cent. Great Debates, World Series Grab Spotlight NEW YORK W) — The most (8:30-9:30). On Sunday Ihere's'lhe Senator Kennedy. . "We are both convinced," Con- grsssman Patman said, "thai real progress can be trade toward their solution under his administration through sound investment in our natural resources. I am pleased to serve on the Committee, not; only to help point up this issue during the campaign, but in order to help determine the policy of the new administration." Duelling with him -in dramatic ug-of-will is the' English King . Henry IJ o£ Anthony Quinn. Through episodic scenes set within a framework of soaring Gothic arches, AnouiJh deftly lays iare the conflict between barbaric, unlettered majesty and th«" enlightened humanity of , • , free spirit. Quinn's black-browed, complex portrayal is a superb counterpoint to the silvery-smooth Olivier interpretation. Along with them are a half hundred other performers, almost >all of whom are precisely perfect-under the direction of'Peter Greenville. Particularly notable are the French King Louis- of Robert Eckles, Earl 'Montgomery's venal Bishop of London, and Brian Crowe's troubled young monk. Oliver Smith's sets • are rich with a controlled splendor. For David Merrick, producing ' his fourth venture of the . season, '•Becket" is a notable accomplishment.

M — Dav i d Bolts and Eugene Adams, both 23, had something approaching a roller coaster ride on the M a r- shall Street viaduct here. Their automobile crashed through a guard rail and wound uup on a grass plot 85 feet below. Police said it slid down a telephone pole guy wire. They were uninjured. Until recently the sophisticated investor turned up his nose at savings bonds — their yield was comparatively low, and inflation pared even that return over the years they were held- But whether they like to admit it or not, most Americans with a few dollars to save now and then don't consider themselves sophisticated investors and have not the time it takes to remain one. Most of them have gone along with their payroll deduction plans for savings bonds. Weakness in the stock market las worried the mutual funds. But their net assets increased this August, compared with cither July or August, 1959, the National Association of Investment Companies reports.
