24 Golesburo Repister-Moil, Gotesburp, HI, , Friday, Oct. 18, 1963 Illinois Employment Rises But Unemployment Continues By BRUCE B. BAKKfi SPRINGFIELD (UPl)-More Illinois citizens held jobs last month than ever before in the state's history. Yet this otherwise-bright economic landscape continues to be darkened by the shadow of chronic unemployment. Illinois Department of Labor statistics released this week show that nonfarm employment rose to 3,650,100 in mid-September. State Labor Director John Cullerton said this is the highest total ever reached in Illinois, about 9,000 ahead of the previous record set in June this year. For 23 months, the state's labor force has been larger than it was in the same month the previous year. But Cullerton said the unemployment rate in the state remains about 4.6 per cent of the work force. Just to keep even with the ever-increasing number of persons entering the job market, approximately 75,000 new jobs must be created this year. And automation, becoming more and more a fact of economic life in Illinois, is allowing industry to multiply its production with the same number of employes. ALE5BURO 85 n.

"Although it is a blessing in the long run," Cullerton said, "automation often carries with it hardship, suffering and unemployment." Cullerton and the assistant labor director, Samuel Bernstein, both feel President Kennedy's proposal for a federal tax cut must be passed by congress this year to boost the state and national economy. "Up to now," Bernstein said, "we have felt the economy was increasing fast enough to keep up with additions to the labor force and to find jobs for those unemployed because of technology. But now, the rate of improvement in technology in industry — putting machines to work where men had been doing the job—is moving faster than the economy. Coal Work Declines "That's why we need the President's tax cut program." Employment in coal mines, once a vital part of the state's economy, continues to decline, Cullerton said. In September, manufacturing employment increased by only 700. The usual seasonal increase in manufacturing employment is around 15,000, he said. The main cause of the September increase in employment was the addition of nearly 20,000 jobs by public schools. This is a traditional and expected seasonal increase as teachers and school maintenance workers began their nine- month duties. There were between 175,000 and 180,000 persons unemployed in Illinois in September. Many of these persons can perform only unskilled jobs. Often their unemployment benefits have run out and they either are on public aid or are using up what ever resources they had saved when they were working. Cullerton and Bernstein both said the overall economic outlook appeared healthy. But Cullerton said he was "very much concerned about the state's hard-core unemployment figure. "Something must be done to find jobs for these people," the labor director said. He left no doubt that he thought that "something" was a federal tax cut. rhey'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy ffatfo HAMMOCK IS DEAD SET AGAINST WOMEN WHO WORK"" rfs A SHAME// iNEyae JUST TAWMG 1W£ JOBS yttVAV FROM MEN WHO 4RE OUT OP WORK// IT'S NOT RIGHT." • 101 B UT HOW ABOUT HIM ON NIGHTS ^ AND WEEK ENDS?

(UPI)F S Services Inc., an American Farm Bureau cooperative supply subsidiary, will distribute nearly $7.5 million in earnings to member companies and shareholders in Illinois and Iowa. C. H. Becker, executive vice president, said Wednesday more than $6.1 million of the amount would be paid in cash and the rest in stock and other securities. The cash distribution will include dividends on stock and patronage refunds. Illinois member companies and shareholders will get $4.6 million in cash, compared to $3.8 million last year. Iowans will receive $1.5 million, $1 million more than last year, he said. Sales Mount Becker reported record sales for the cooperative, which manufactures, processes and distributes petroleum, feed, steel products, plant food, agricultural chemicals and other farm supplies.

Becker credited the greater efficiency of the merged firm, plus good weather, favorable markets and careful cost control, for the Improved net. He said the return of capital averaged just under 20 per cent, one of the highest for enterprises engaged in farm supply. F S Services has about 175,000 farmer customers in the two states. It is affiliated jointly with the Illinois Agricultural Association and the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation. Its annual meeting will be Nov. 7 at Burlington.
