14 Gotesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III, Thursday, Sept. 19, 1963 Kennedy Asks La Business To Exoort By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)-Prcsident Kennedy urges American manufacturers and farmers to sell $2 billion more of their products abroad each year. Or, to put it the other way, he wants foreigners to buy $2 billion more of American goods. He says Americans could increase the total of exports if they looked beyond home markets, put more hard-sell into their efforts abroad, and if they lowered prices to meet competition from oilier industrial countries. Foreigners presumably could find the money to buy more from us by buying less from our competitors, and by using more of the dollar assets they pile up from sales of their goods and raw materials to us and from our foreign aid and other federal spending programs, and from dollars received as private investment overseas by Americans. In spite of all the forebodings about growing foreign competition, U.S. export totals have been growing year by year. They came to $20.5 billion in 1962. American business has been able to expand many of its markets and hold others because of superior product, service, or efficiency of manufacturing and distribution. It has done so in the face of rising production costs at home, sharply contrasted to generally lower production costs (particularly labor) in the fast rising industrial lands of Western Europe and Japan. The rub has come from this: While the total of exports has grown, the share of the world's markets has fallen. U.S. exports were still expanding, but those of other nations were increasing much faster. Rising wages and other production costs in Europe have led many Americans to believe that the price advantage some European products have in world markets was shrinking. But statistics issued by the Commission of the European Economic Community show that while prices paid by the consumers in Europe are rising, the prices on exported goods have gone up very little. President Kennedy has told American producers they might try the same thing—boost exports by producing more and keeping prices low. instead of the other way around.

"Neither a borrower nor a lender be," wrote Shakespeare, a bit of advice from the bard that is honored more in neglect than in observance. The employes of most firms spend at least part of the working day borrowing from each other, and the custom has many social as well as financial advantages. It helps them to pass the time, it improves their arithmetic, it enables them to find out who their real friends are (if any), and it keeps alive some wastrels who might otherwise starve between paydays. While office borrowing isn't universal, it is practically so. A crisp new $5 bill, loaned to one person in the morning, may travel briefly through half a dozen pockets before nightfall — as it is borrowed and reborrowed. Sometimes it even winds up in the same pocket from which its journey started. If you look around your own office, you may find the following types of white collar borrowers farr'iai: "The competitor" — If he sees you lend $3 to someone, he immediately asks you for $6 — because he can't stand to see anybody else get ahead of him at anything. "The tragedian" — Before he makes his touch, he breaks your heart with a tale of woe. "All I want is carfare and enough to buy one red rose," he weeps. "My daughter is having her adenoids out, and I want to visit her in the hospital." "The grand evader" — "Don't bother me with trifles," he says loftily when you ask him humbly for the $25 he has owed you since Christmas. "I'm working on a deal now that'll make us both rich." "The compulsive wheedler" — If you don't have any ready cash, he'll borrow anything else you have. It's a matter of pride with this guy never to go away empty handed.

"The pyramid artist" — On payday he pays you the $5 he borrowed, and the next day he borrows $10. He keeps building up his debt this way until, when he is fired at the end of the year, he leaves with you holding the sack for $10.
