"Aviation is in a different era ban it was when my father was n it," Jon explains. "The ocean ffers a brand new field in many ways. It hasn't been de- eloped. It contains vast quanti- ies of unexploited resources. Diving is a tool in developing ne potentials of the ocean." Jon Morrow Lindbergh, who s 33, says he's been interested n the ocean as long as he can emember. "I've always been close to it— ved around it, worked on it uring summers."

William H. Crook, regional director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, said OEO is ready to allocate the funds this year. Cooperation has been promised by the Economic Development Agency and the Welfare Administration, he said. Texas OEO Director Walter Richter and his staff would develop the program, Crook said, with one of the largest OEO grants made in the Southwest. He said the program resulted from a series of visits he and Richter made to Laredo. Crook said the visits resulted in findings that job creation must take priority over job training; that only 14,000 of Laredo's 65,000 people are tax payers; that Laredo has a staggering health problem with infant mortality five times the national average; that the city has largely substandard housing with sanitary facilities virtually non-existent in some areas. on active duty in underwater commercial diving and industri- demolition. "It seemed like it would be interesting work," he said. When he and the Navy parted company in 1957, he and three other men set up a firm which was primarily involved in commercial diving. That company, based in San Diego, Calif., lasted three years, then "the key personnel moved off to various corners of the world, so we sold "I was involved in my own companies the next five years in The Sun's TeieScope By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — A policeman's lot apparently is no happier today than it was when Gi!-i ben and Sullivan wrote a song n!a coa sts he's worked as a al blasting.

In 1964, Lindbergh and Robert Stenuit spent 49 hours 432 feet down in the Atlantic off the Bahama Islands to prove man can work at that depth. They lived in a large rubber diving bell but swam in and out to take mens. As for close calls, Lindbergh says. had narrower scrapes on the highway than in diving."

Lindbergh explains the company is "interested in various fields of ocean development work — from research to contracting." His latest venture was helping the underwater search off Spain for a U.S. nuclear bomb lost in a B52 bomber crash. Lindbergh figures he has spent only about 20 per cent ofj his time diving in recent years. The balance has been spent on running the company's submersible program, from ordinary diving to the use of diving belis and small submarines on jobs such as drilling for oii pnd Inspecting undersea pipelines orj cables. ! Off the Oregon arid Califor- By SAM DAWSOX AP Business News Aaafyrt NEW YOHK (AP) — PrcSjs were never higher but the stock market is eyeing gloomy predictions that the earnings climb is tiring. Some even fear the trend may be reversed. The figures themselves, however, scarcely bear this out. They get bigger all the time. The market shrugs these off as past history and tries to guess the future. What is feared is that profits will be cramped by several developments. These include rising production costs as wage scales mount and payroll outlays are hiked by higher Social Security taxes;' tight money proving both expensive and restrictive for business expansion plans and current activities; high break-in costs for new plants coming into operation or. on the other hand, unprofitable operation of aging plants as stepped-up production schedules push against the limits of capacity; and labor shortages that spell more overtime, less production, or the hiring of less efficient help. All seem likely to happen. And in the realm of probability are higher tax payments this year through a speedup in collections, and maybe higher tax rates before the year is out. Predictions that the climb in profits is petering out are based on an interpretation of the latest figures, rather than oa the figures themselves. Actual results show that in the final three months of 1965 manufacturers' net income aft- ei taxes advanced 19 per cent over their profits for the preceding quarter. The fourth quarter net earnings also were 16 per cent above the fourth quarter of 1954. This year-to-year gain was about the same as set up in each of the first three quarters of 1965. With some companies advancing as much as 40 per cent in profits last year, what is the reasoning behind the predictions of a letdown? In addition to the forces outlined earlier, the statisticians at the First National City Bank, New York, point to the season trends. They say the 19 per cent advance in the fourth quarter of 1965 from the July-September period was only slightly more than seasonal. That is, profits are usually highest in the final months, while the summer often sees a lag. This only slightly more than seasonal advance at the end of year is contrasted to a considerably more than usual advance in the April-June quarter and a much better than usual summer performance. The moral the statisticians draw is that in the spring and summer profits were really swinging. But at year's end ei- jther the boom was tiring, or costs were mounting, or both. Industry is still producing at near record levels in this first quarter of 1966. But what the stock market is wondering is: How much of the feverish activity is being turned into after-tax profits? _ AVOID THE RUSH! HAVE YOUR CAR INSPECTED NOW. about it.
