Bob Huddle's New Outdoor Studio Opens Huddle Studio, 715 W. Losey St., recently opened its new outdoor studio, the first of its kind in Galesbufg. The all-weather studio utilizes the "riofthetn skylight" principle, which is rtiade possible by a special translucent, white canopy roof. This type of setup prevents direct sunlight and gives a northern skylight effect, said Robert Huddle, owner of the studio. With the modern trend toward outdoor portraitures, Huddle said the new outdoor studio has a variety of different environmental backgrounds, such as stone walls, barnboards and plants. The studio also has settings for bridal pictures and family portraits. Huddle Studio set an all-time record for the number of weddings photographed in June. Holt Attends Distributor's Conference John Holt, president of P.H.C. Supply Co., 515 S. Seminary St., returned recently from Devils Gap Lodge near Kenora, Qnt., where he participated in a planning conference for distributors of home heating and air conditioning. The conference is called annually by Coleman Co., Inc., to study trends in product development and marketing of home comfort equipment. Distributors at the meeting foresaw few problems for the home owner beyond an occasional "brown-out" and spot shortages of heating fuels. Neiilher is expected to prove serious. More homes will be air conditioned this year than ever before and the outlook is for the upward trend to continue, C. R. Henry, Coleman executive vice president, told the distributors. READ THE WANT ADS! Bankers Opposed To Indirect Tax WASHINGTON -* the pensioners, surviving spouses and savefs of America should not have to pay for special supports for brokerage firms, a spokesman for the American Bankers Assn. testified here last week. Thomas C. Theobald, executive vice president of the First Na* tional City Bank of New York, said if Congress judges such support is necessary, consideration should be given to provid* ing it in the form of cash subsidies rather than indirect taxation upon those people who have chosen a cooperative approach to investment. Theobald told a House hearing the ABA was opposed to the Security Industry Association proposal calling for a return to fixed brokerage fees over $300,000. The SIA, he said, cJaim such fees are necessary to keep the brokerage firms healthy. Even if some brokers have not yet learned to deal in a competitive environment others obviously have, he said. "Even in the worst quarter cited by the SIA, the first quarter of 1973, the majority of firms reported a profit," he added. The trust departments, mutual funds, pension and other separate "saving pools" that the SIA classifies under the oversimplified monolith "institutions" invest money for tens (fottjbuffl Reg!,$llf u MoJI, Go.esburg, 11 Motorcycle Shop Opens Dom's Sport Qenter, 1700 Grand Ave., has opened its new Kawasaki motorcycle shop. Construction of a 5,000-square- foot addition on the east side of the sporting goods store is near completion, Pete Calderone, manager of the cycle shop, said tooay. All structural work on the addition has been completed. While the grand opening of the new shop is tentatively set for fall, Calderone said the store's management decided to move the cycle department into the new addition this summer. The local Kawasaki dealer is offering 13 different styles of dirt and street bikes. Dom's Sport Center also has a factory- trained mechanic on duty at all time.. of millions of Americans, Theobald said. He also pointed out that these pools offer the advantage of professional investment advice often at lower broker fees. "A plaintive picture has been presented of the hapless brokers wlose commission rates are dictated by bank trust departments and other investors who invest these millions of dollars in savings," Theobald told the House Subcommittee on Commerce and Finance. "The reality is that dozens of brokerage firms enjoy revenues measured in the tens and even hundreds of millions of dollars," he said. Theobald pointed out the five largest publicly owned brokerage firms have revenues five times greater than the total trust income of the five largest banks. The only equitable solution to the elimination fixed commissions, he said, is institutional stock exchange membership. The ABA has frequently testified that its member bank trust departments do not actively s«ek to be stock exchange members. This position was taken because the association's members find it hard to reconcile the independence of a fiduciary investment manager with the potential conflicts that might arise from serving as broker to a managed account, according to Theobald. "For the same reason," he stated, "as well as to eliminate competitive inequality, brokerage firms should no longer be permitted to serve as both investment manager and broker to the same accounts." Theobald's statement was the second filed by the ABA concerning the Securities Exchange Amendments of 1973. The first ABA statement -filed April 23, 1975, supported the positions of the House Subcommittee, the SEC, and the Department of Justice, all of which favor the principle of competitive com missions.

Are Seeking Exemptions WASHINGTON - Carl E. Bagge, president of the National Coal Assn., asked the Cost of Living Council, today to exempt long-term coal contracts from Phase IV price regulations on grounds that they are self-policing price stabilizers. Long-term sales contracts afe esssential if the coal industry is to expand to meet future energy demands, Bagge said in a letter to Dr. John T. Dunlop, chairman of the CLC. They give the coal producer the assurance of a market which he must haVe to obtain financing to install new mines, he said. Long-term contracts set '> a fixed price for coal except for clearly defined cost factors such as labor rates and supplies; these are covered by escalation clauses which are subject to negotiation each timo they ilire applied, Bagge said.
