10 Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburo, Monday, Oct. 7. 1963 Competition Can Be Boon To Spenders or Savers By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)-Competition can be a boon to savers as well as to the spenders it usually is credited with helping. For consumers competition is supposed to hold down prices. For savers it can boost the rewards. And many who could put aside a few dollars from the weekly paycheck have been able of late to get higher yields—up to five per cent from some Southern California savings institutions. This is thanks to the competition among the many havens for savings—and also thanks to the increasing number of those who borrow. Where borrowers multiply, savers prosper — if things don't go too far. Some warnings about that are being made now by federal agencies. Increased interest rates, both on some forms of loans and for the savings from which loans are made, have also been influenced by international politics in today's complicated world of finance. The U.S. government has encouraged higher rates on some forms of savings, to keep money at home rather than letting it go abroad where foreigners already have too many surplus dollars for our comfort when it comes to settling international payments. But mostly, savers have been wooed because the demand for mortgages, installment loans and other forms of credit—particularly irt fast growing areas of the TO KEEP YOUNG STAY HEALTHY Anyone who lived to be fifty about a hundred years ago was considered very fortunate.

MAIN ST. If your Doctor Prescribes It — Hawthorn* Has It Copyright 1961 nation—has been so insistent that lending institutions were competing for available funds. Competition to raise money for the mortgage market in Southern California has led several savings and loans associations to raise dividends to five per cent. This has brought an expression of concern from Joseph P. McMurray, chairman of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, which regulates federally chartered associations. He says "hasty rate increases" might lead to federal restrictions. His worry is that payment of five per cent to savers can be assured only by continued heavy demand for mortgages paying higher. interest. The government doesn't want building slowed by too expensive financing. But Frank B. Yeilding Jr., president of the U.S. Savings and Loan League, says that record mortgage lending by the nation's associations has eliminated the excess supply of savings funds they held earlier this year. Mortgage demand varies from region to region. But lenders insist that increasing population means still greater demand for housing. Competition for savings — and for profitable loans — has been growing among many other forms of savings institutions. Commercial banks have been paying more on time deposits, and in many places savings banks have been raising their returns. This, plus DR. I.

CAPE CANAVERAL WPl) Venus, that planetary beauty In the sky, still hat at least one champion. Venus has faired rather poorly at the hands of non-esthetic scientists this year. They have ruled that this ancient queen of the heavens actually is nothing but a sort of oven in the sky, hiding her dreary ugliness beneath a perpetual skirt of brilliant clouds. But up steps a U. S. space scientist, Krafft Ehricke, With a dissenting opinion to the general scientific conclusion that Venus' is a broiling, lifeless desert. At the risk of getting into a man-versus-machine argument, Ehricke remains unconvinced that the planet is broiling. That poses an interesting point of speculation. If Venus is not broiling, then it is cool — perhaps cool enough to support life. Deplores Current Thinking Ehricke. deplores the current tendency to rule out Venus as having no merit for future manned exploration. "Venus is an example of why you need man in space," he said. It does not disturb the stocky ex-German rocket expert that he is at odds with popular scientific sentiment about the planet Venus. Actually his argument is not that his fellow anti-Venus scientists are wrong — but that they do not,, have enough information to prove they are right. Ehricke is director of advanced studies at General Dynamics-Astronautics in San Diego, Calif. — and, as such, he is one of the so-called "four-out" group that is studying where, when and how man should go into Interplanetary space after he conquers the •noon. Despite the apparently negative results from America's Mariner-2 space probe — the basis for most of the present 111 thoughs about that planet — Venus remains Ehricke's favorite initial planetary port-of-call in his own proposals for post-lunar expeditions. "Venus might hold even more surprises than Mars" Is his opinion. Covered By Clouds There is an element of mystery about Venus, whose surface is 100 per cent hidden by clouds. Mars, on the other hand, is naked in its reddish brilliance to earthbound telescopes. Ehricke takes exception to the inclination of the space science fraternity to almost completely write off Venus as a worthwhile Independent Sudan Sudan became an independent country on Jan. 1, 1066, when Great Britain and Egypt hauled down their flags at ceremonies in Khartoum.

But was that ''somewhere" actually on the surface, or was It somewhere in the thick cloud layers. If the latter was the case, said Ehricke, then Venus "does not necessarily have an W0-degree temperature on the surface, and therefore (if the temperature is lower) thes urfaee is not necessarily dry," as has been the common interpretation.
