Anyway, 14 per cent of the American labor force is employed directly In the manufacture and sale or indirectly in the sup* ply, servicing and repair of automobiles and trucks, So it is now the No, 1 business barometer, ahead of steel. "The automobile industry now has so many favorable factors working for it/' says Robert J. Eggert, marketing research manager for Ford Motor Co., "that we feel no qualms in envisioning a steady upward sales trend in the years ahead. "The industry's second straight seven-million sales year back-to- back — 1962 and 1963 — now appeals to be a Idydown.

University of Michigan 's Survey Research Center has found that for every 100 spending units in the 10*24 age group, four buy a new car arid 27 buy a used car. For all ages, the figures are 0 per cent buying new cars and 16 per cent buying used cars, So one- third of all auto sales are new cars. The long-run growth rate of new car sales has been rising about 2.8 per cent a year on the average, since 1950. The forecast is that new car sales will rise to 7.5 million by 1965, to 8.6 million by if* and il million by 1WS CAMtA iMon* hai b*en rfilflg •rftgt lift trfiJ p#r c«rt • y«ir ( llii jpowtr. • Vfraii wtt f MM in IMF.

April 8 Creole pipeline again communist subversion to the rest of the hemi- blown up, April 9 — Three Venezuelan police f By JOHN CHAMBERLAIN WHEN I WAS IN Puerto Rico some years ago a member of the Serralles rum-distilling clan tried to explain to me the Latin concept of "Dignidad.'' To translate it as simple "dignity" was not quite right; apparently the concept also included something about honor and inviolability. It was a two-way proposition: Dig- nidad meant that one should be respected, but also that one must have reason to demand respect. The Serralles clan, at the time, was insistent that it be regarded as first-class Spaniards, not as third-class Americans; Dignidad was very much on its mind. Thinking about the business of temporizing with Castro in Cuba, I have more than once recalled that conversation about Dignidad in the hot Caribbean coastal town sphere is taking a mounting toll of U. S. cars bombed with "Molotov cocktails" as of Ponce The trouble with the properties. There is obvious New Frontier Reds burn U. S.-owned Adams Chiclet Co., in United States in relation to the reluctance to admit that this increase'exists, Caracas. April 26 U. S.-owned cordage Castro question is that it has had no Dignidad. In putting up with Fidel Castro's diatribes and insults, we do not respect ourselves. And it follows, as the night follows the day, that no Dignidad-loving Latin American from the Rio Grande all the way south to Patagonia can respect us. CONFIRMATION of this suspicion comes from Mexico, in a new Mexican-American Bulletin put out by Hugo Salinas Price at Apartado Postal No. 15049 Mexico 15, D.F., which i is hereby recommended to the so-called Fourth Floor of the U.S. State Department. Full of Dignidad himself, Hugo Salinas Price minces no words on the subject of Castro. "In the eyes of our people," he says, "the fact that Castro is strong, and that he acts decisively and fearlessly, and the fact that the U.S. is impotent, is an overwhelming argument in favor of Castro. Outwardly, some of our people may not be sympathetic to Castro and commu- but the United States government and its citi- mill in Caracas burned. nism. But inwardly, they admire his valor, his decision, his will to attain a given goal, even over dead bodies." This is laying it on the line. Stressing the "honor" component of Dignidad, Hugo Salinas Price points out that honor, in Mexican eyes, is bound up with "machismo," which is to be translated as "male-ism." The male Latin American cares very little for speeches on human rights, for, "in the Latin mentality, a man has a perfect right to kill with his hands, with a knife, or with a gun, anyone who dares to humiliate him." Well, Castro and his sarcastic speech-making Minister of Economics, the Argentinean "Che" Guevara, have seized every possible occasion to humiliate the United States. And so the Mexicans feel only "hate and contempt" for a nation that allows itself to be so humiliated. "Mexicans," so Hugo Salinas Price continues, "do not care to be allied with a power that has been humiliated, and that -tries to buy respect. . .The Mexican is fiercely proud, in the midst of poverty. The 'Alliance for Progress* completely ignores the fact that the Mexican is clearly aware of U. S. humiliation and degradation by Castro*communism, and is still waiting for Tio Sam' to roll up his sleeves. The Mexican does not care a fig for propaganda about 'radical social reforms' because he has been hearing all this for 50 years, and it goes in one ear and out the other. What would powerfully impress him would be to see the U.S. pin Castro's ears back and eject communism from Cuba." Honor, so Hugo Salinas Price concludes, is a word that is respected far more than place or tolerance in Mexico. "Each been grasped in Washington. 99 TO BE perfectly fair, somo people do grasp the issue in Washington. Republican Senator Gordon Allott of Colorado would restore Uncle — or "Tio" — Sam's Dignidad Cuban year," he says, "many people kill and are killed for its sake. That is the issue in the minds of Mexicans; an old-fashioned, unsophisticated issue which has not by creating a government-in-exile and letting it set up its provisional capital on the U.S. naval base at Guantanamp. This would be throwing something right in Fidel Castro's face. The Mexican government, along with the Bra* zilian government, might officially object to the infringement of the concept of self-determination implied in backing a Cuban gov* ernment-in-exile with the guns of a foreign naval base. But, as Hugo Salinas Price insists, the Latin American respects Digni­ dad more than he does finicking over nice shades of legality. So get going, "Tio" Sam.

S. Senate. The three, freshman Democrats elected in 1958, are considered political accidents. They are included on a list of 10 Democrats that Republican strategists feel can be retired one year hence. Twenty-five Senate seats now held by Democrats are up for grabs while only nine Republicans must seek re-election. Sen. Thrust on Morton, chairman of the Senate GOP Campaign Committee, feels that his party can pick up six, and possibly 10, Democratic seats. His Democratic year to campaign at a feverish pace but his efforts will likely be m vain. Republicans have won virtually every Wyoming election since 1958 and McGee's likely opponent is Congfessman-at-Large William Henry Harrison who won re-election last fall by the largest majority in state history. Utah: Salt Lake City's Frank Moss won his place in the sun — and the Senate — with 38 per cent of the vote in 1958. Two Republicans split the remaining 62 per cent down the middle.

A REVITALIZED GOP now makes Hartke a decided underdog with several attractive candidates Texas: Ultra-liberal Ralph Yarborough will face primary opposition before Republicans can get at him. His re-election chances will be considerably lessened if Barry Goldwater is the GOP presidential nominee. Possible GOP candidates include Congressmen Ed Foreman and Bruce Alger, Dallas trucker Des Barry and throughout the Oklahoma seat held by self- appointed J.
