10 Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, Good Year in Car Sales to Aid Economy By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) - Prospects of a third big auto sales year in a row are giving the strongest supporting arguments for those who see the 1964 entire economy soaring to new highs. There's that nice cushion such high-geared production in the auto industry will give to others, their suppliers — steel, aluminum, copper, glass, plastic, fibers. And payrolls of all concerned add to consumer purchasing power. Also there's the spreading influence of a larger number of cars on many other phases of American life, that can be translated into dollars. More cars spur the growth of more shopping centers, restaurants, motels, drive-in movies, factories, and even banks. They also lead to the building of more highways, parking lots and garages. And increasing collections of traffic fines add to many a local government' revenues. All of this flow of cash even tually furnishes still more persons with additional personal income. This in turn makes that many more dollars available to buy more cars. Much of the prolonged high level of car sales now setting a record for duration and dollar volume has been attributed to the steady increase of total personal income. An affluent society tends to put car ownership (or at least a monthly payment equity) high on the list of benefits of affluence. But some also note that this continuing high volume of auto sales runs at a higher rate than does the increase in individual incomes and thus must reflect a change in the American way of life. Cars are claiming more of the extra dollars than are most other things. And that may be why the car market is not becoming sat- Thurscfay, Oct. 10, 1963 A-L-L-L-L ABOARD FOR NOWHERE—Auto, left will have a long watt before this train pulls out at Sioux Falls, S. D.

This would seem to limit sales to population growth. But it isn't working that way. "The demand for automobiles is growing, and at a rate considerably faster than either population or income," report the economists at the Chase Manhattan Bank, New York. "The reason: More and more U.S. families are buying not one, but two, three, and in some cases, four or more cars.."

Families of Thresher Men Maintain a Valiant Front By JAMES CALOGERO PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP)They put on a valiant front—the families of the Thresher men—but the heartbreak they suffered still shows through. The Navy's underwater pride and joy, the nuclear submarine Thresher, sank with the loss of 129 men during a test dive 220 miles off Boston six months ago today. Since that day, April 10, the submarine has been waterlocked only a mile and a half out of reach—the depth of the water at her Atlantic grave. Ashore, a girl, 3, scribbles a childish note and asks her widowed mother to mail it to daddy. The mother answers kindly and fights the tears. A boy, 6, reminds his mother that daddy has been away to sea an awfully long time and asks when is he coming home. The mother tells a visitor she awaits the day the boy will understand. In another home in the Portsmouth area, a 3-month-old boy his father is never to see gurgles, unknowing of tragedy. He was born three months after his father went down. Loss of Thresher left 150 fatherless children. Aboard the submarine were 16 officers, 96 enlisted men and 17 civilian technicians. There is no bitterness among the widows and children. At a trim ranch home in Portsmouth, Mrs. Walter Jack Noonis says her two sons and two daughters, ranging in age from 2 to 10, keep her busy "but there's this terrible loneliness about the time of the day your husband is supposed to be coming home," In Rye, N.H., Mrs. Michael J. Di Nola—her husband was a lieutenant commander—took a breather from the strenuous effort her five small children require and recalls the past six months. "With five small children, I knew I had to face up to the facts and make my adjustment quickly. I found the answer in keeping busy." She's still active in Navy affairs. "It's the way Mike would have wanted it," she says. "The Navy was his whole life since his days at Annapolis. I met him on a blind date while he was a mid- shipment and I was doing gradu ate nursing work in New York, his home city." The families of the 112 Navy men received a death gratuity of six months pay. In addition they receive $112 a month plus 12 per cent of base pay. Many of the men also carried national service and commercial life insurance policies. The children of the Navy men are eligible for college scholarships which can be drawn from the Dolphin Fund—a private fund in Norfolk, Va., administered by thp Navy. The 44 children left by the ci vilians lost on Thresher will be eligible for scholarships from a special memorial fund established through public subscription. Church Women Host Party For Patients Twenty-eight patients of worn en's Ward C-22 at Galesburg State Research Hospital Monday repaid an earlier visit to the hospital by an Altona church group. A bus breakdown almost stalled the patients' visit, but a hurry-up call to members of the hospital volunteer group provided an eight car caravan for transportation. The patients were met at the Immanuel Lutheran Church by the minister, Rev. Andrew Tetzlaff, and some 30 members of the Mary-Martha and Rachel Circles. A receiving line was formed in the church parlors, which were decorated with fall flowers. Organ music was a background for the reception. The guests were entertained at a devotional program featuring a violin solo, vocal duet and group singing. A social hour followed. The women were accompanied at Altona by Mrs. Raymond Pearcy, psychiatric aide, of Abingdon; volunteers Mrs. Oscar Carlson, Mrs. Verne Dowers, Mrs. Ronald Fritz, Mrs. Hugh Hendricks, Mrs. Melvin Huffman, Mrs. Eunice Miller, all of Galesburg, and Mrs. Florence Doyle and Mrs. Anna Mary McCoy of the hospital staff.
