\ ting For 19641s In Progress v By SAM DAWSON ANEW YORK <AP> - Forecast. Ing used to be a December sport. This year peering into the economy's future is already welt under way. And most of the predictions sound suspiciously alike: Business will be good in the first half of 1964; and if a tax cut is passed in time to give the aging upswing a needed tonic, business should be good throughout the year. Those who suspect this may not be necessarily so base their warnings on a number of things. But a chief one just now is that all the predictions sound alike. Often in the past an unanimous vote either for an upswing or a downturn has proved strikingly wrong. The optimistic predictions, however, have much solid backing. The momentum of the current upswing alone could carry it along for some time. And the weaknesses in the economy just now either aren't too apparent, or they've been around so long as to seem no more potent now than in the past few months. Then there's that tax cut. If federal taxes are cut soon enough for the effect to be felt in the early months of 1964, increased consumer spending could boost already high retail sales and industrial production. If the tax cuts are voted sometime later in 1964, so that the actual extra spending money becomes available only toward the middle of the year, this could prove an antire­ cession measure. The nagging worry among some economists is based first on the age of the present upturn and second on past experience which shows that current strength usually hides any underlying weaknesses. A downturn in the economic cycle usually comes as a surprise to most Americans, businessmen or workers, producers or consumers. Some economists argue that business cycles have been largely tamed by government cushions or pump priming. Others contend they have only lost the worst of their bite but are still with us. Some of the caution signs now sighted are the easing off of the earlier boom in housing construction and in manufacturers' new orders for durable goods. Employment, retail sales and personal income of late haven't rung %p the big gains of earlier this year. A slowdown in an advance isn't a downturn by any means. But in the past it has sometimes in- *4 ill y *f?? ||||||| sw' *-mmn^. 'i^wm-u* '«•**>>*•>< A CARD-CASE ON WHEELS—Front end of this sports car owned by F. B.

That's why the good news from Detroit that the new car models seem to be catching on, with its promise of another good sales year, and the upturn in steel production which has firmed up de­ cisions to raise steel prices is viewed as especially encouraging just now. And the forecasters are making the most of it. Momentum— and the likelihood of a tax cut- lead most of them to see only fair skies ahead.

Even In "make-believe," It's easy for a little girl to experience the frustration of a mother without enough money to make ends meet. And as a grownup, you know that prolonged sickness, injury, or even death can substantially reduce your family's income. Should this happen to the breadwinner, will there be enough money to raise your family, educate your children, meet the mortgage payment and pay the doctor bills? Of course, social security can help, but will your family's total monthly income be large enough •,. or last long enough?

C&EItotTse Hoppers for Hauling Grain CHICAGO (AP)-The Chicago k Eastern Illinois Railroad Is planning to use open hopper cars to help offset the shortage of box* cars for hauling grain. President David O. Mathews said hopper cars will be assigned to pick up Illinois grain along the railroad. He said a special polyethylene sheeting had been designed for covering the grain in transit. Mathews did not specify how many hopper cars would be assigned to grain hauling. Mathews also announced that the Illinois Commerce Commission has approved the railroad's plan to convert a rail-to-barge coal transfer facility at Joppa, 111., on the Ohio River to a grain transfer operation. The facility at Joppa was built ten years ago to handle coal bound for the TVA's Shawnee plant. But the facility had not been used since last August. Mathews said the ICC had approved the C. & E. I. request for new grain movement rates from Illinois elevators to Joppa, effective last Saturday. Leading companies have given the disabled a chance; they find it's good business.
