WEBEL NEW YORK (UPI)- The stock market paused in its upward trend part of this week but showed no real signs of weakening and closed Friday at a new all-time high in the Dow- Jones industrials. Stocks continued to show effects of the signing of the tax cut bill, and the break-through 800 in the Dow-Jones industri als, by moving up to new all time highs Monday and Tues day. The market wandered aimlessly Wednesday and Thursday but resumed its advance Fri day to close a new record 806.03. This put the senior indicator up 5.89 on the week. Despite many predictions to the contrary, one broker had this to say about the tax cut and its subsequent effect on the stock market: T believe the market is still underestimating the impact that the tax cut is going to have almost immediately at all levels of the economy. I think that busmess activity and earnings will be sufficient to support a Dow industrial index of 900 or better this year—or perhaps even this summer. This does not rule out the pos sibility of some milling around near present price levels for a brief period until the tax cut can make itself felt in the statistics. But the longer the market builds a base, the firmer that base will be." Business news remained bullish on balance and included: an eight-month high for steel production; record January fac tory orders; the biggest surge in machine tool orders since the mid-1950's; higher retail and department store sales- Although autos had sharply higher sales in Febniary, production this week was schduled 5 per cent below the previous week. Alcoa, Kaiser Aluminum and Reynolds Metals, which boosted their domestic price on aluminum, were up 4, 'A and 2'A, respectively. Aircrafts held the center of attention. President Johnson announced that a new military jetj under development by Lockheed far outperforms any other known plane and Lockheed stock added ?4. McDonnell jumped 7'T4 after receiving S662.8 million defense con tract for jet fighters. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara reduced the B70 bomber pro gram from three to two planes and North American Aviation, which makes the plane, eased from its best level and closed up -H. Trading amounted to 25,979,952 shares compared with 26, 046,640 in the previous week and 20,210,540 in the similar 1963 period. Dow-Jones rails were up 1.24 to 191.98; utilities off 0.05 to 140.45 and 65 stocks up 161. to 282.14. Standard & Poor's 500 stock index rose 0.51 to does at a record 78.31.

It is the only immobile object in sight on Acapulco's "Bikini Beach" where the bikinis are the bikiniest over femmine hips that are the busiest. There's even a busy back ground, if you care to notice. Water skiers appear as if they are maktag giant doodUng marks with their wakes on the surface of the blue punchbowl that is Acapulco Bay. The wonder of it all, though, is where the movie "Love Has Many Faces" ends, and where reality begins. For the camera's sake, 'Playeros," beach boys of local and of Yankee origin, are soaking up the rays of the hot tropical sun. The dark-haired one in brief yellow trunks and with the name of "Hank" is Hugl O'Brian, a fugitive from old western law on television. His muscles glisten C courtesy of a make-up man's spray gun) as he lifts a pony-tailed gurJ wearing a bikini to a standing position on his shoulders. She is a bit player. So arc the other girls on the beach,' basking un der sun and male eyes and $10- a-day-extra checks. But even while the camera turns, some members of the movie crew ignore the scene and watch the audience watch ing them. Some of the bikinis m the audience, you see, are briefer than those in the movie It figures. Among the spec tators are Playeros and their girls watching the movie': Playeros with THEIR giris The bikim's in the off-camera reality are briefer because there is no censorship on the beach — or anywhere else in Acapulco. You even see bikini-cad dolls in night clubs here. As custom ers, I mean, and not in the shows, where the girls wear even less. Now where are we? Oh, yes, Crash fatal to two boys ORANGE (UPI)—Two 16-year old boys were killed Friday night when their pickup truck was rammed squarely from the side by a Santa Fe passenger train at a crossing and carried more than 400 feet. Although the train, the San Diegan, was slowing for a stop two blocks away, the truck was wapped around the engine by the impact and shoved beneath it down the track. Police said the. bodies of Larrj' Edward Brown and Richard Michle Wagner, both of Orange, were found under the engine.

Director Alex Singer says "Cut" and the girl slides down from atop O'Brian shoulders. Then somcthmg amusing happens. Mimicking the scene a bronzed, blue-trunked Playero in the audience lifts his bikini- clad girl atop his shoulders. There is a laugh from the gay holiday crowd, mostly Yankees, and O'Brien good-natur­ edly joins in. There is a frown, though, on the face of an Acapulco police man. Whether the frown is in censure of reality or the movie I don't know. I didn't ask. Hugh O'Brian wears only his yellow trunks and an off-the- shoulder white bath towel to lunch in a nearby swank hotel. There is censure in the eyes of our waiter, but O'Brian plays it cool, like a real Playero. "This is a real physical role fore me," he says. "Muscle beach stuff, water skiing and all that." I didn't ask what he meant by "all that." It is obvious in his role of a fellow who shares company with the ladies with a sideline of friendly blackmaiL In the movie, Ruth Roman is one of them and Lana Turner is a can didatc. Hugh looks fit enough and, as the towel keeps falling off his broad shoulders (he always re turns it with a matador's flour ish), feminine eyes in the room zoom in on him. That's what I like about Hughie. Man, he likes to live his roles No more spring letup School enrollment keeps on sfeady increase Where people are coming from and what they are- doing now that they are here are still virtually unanswered questions, but still coming they are, accord ing to enrollment figures In Redlands public schools. It is considered. normal for enrollment to take a drop about this time of year, particularly in the secondary schools. But this year, it just hasn't happened. Enrollment data this week shov/s that there are 56 more youngsters in elementary schools than there were the first Monday in February. And there are 15 more in the secondary schools. Last year, there was only an increase of" 15 pupils in the elementary district and a loss of 8 at the secondary level between February and March, according to figures compiled by Mrs. Herma Craig of the superintendent's office. Current enrollment in the 10 elementary schools is 5,187 while the three secondary schools have 4,429. This compares with 4,914 on opening day (Sept, 16) at the elementary level and 4,282 at the secondary level. Thus, elementary gro^vth has risen by 273 this year, or the equivalent of 8 new classrooms. Secondary enrollment is up 147, or 4 new classrooms.
