ECONOMY Stocks face stumbling block NEW YORK (AP) — In the two weeks since the Federal Reserve raised its discount rate, the stock market has apparently absorbed the jolt of the news without much lasting damage. But if the Fed under its new chairman, Alan Greenspan, takes further steps to raise the key rate in the months ahead, the market's response could be more severe, some analysts say. Under the "three steps and a stumble" principle formulated years ago by the prominent technical analyst Edson Gould, a series of three overt credit-tightening steps by the Fed is a likely harbinger of a bear market for stocks. When the central bank raised the rate it charges on short-term loans to private financial institutions from 5.5 percent to 6 percent on Sept. 4, itt stated intent was to "deal effectively and in a timely way with potential inflationary pressures." Muxrhers translated that to mean the Fed wanted to keep the dollar from falling much further in foreign exchange. In die view of some observers, a half-point increase wasn't enough to iccornpUsh that mission, and they predicted at least one more incrcftse would follow before too long. These firefighters In the Klamath National Forest paused to cool off with water donated by Mendocino Mineral Water of Comptche. Worst year for forest fires since 1910 It will be months before specialists finish assessing the damage to wildlife, watersheds and timber caused by one of the nation's worst forest fire seasons, and the economic damage to some small towns that depended on timbering for jobs will last for years. "In terms of timber burned, 1987 is probably the worst year since 1910," said Skip Scott of the Boise Interagency Fire Center in Idaho, the nation's command post for fighting forest fires. "There are a number of years that arc benchmarks for fires," Scott said. "1987 will be one of them." "From August 30th to September 12th we burned 726,000 acres (1,134 square miles — larger than the area ol Rhode Island). We had 1,905 fires," Scott said. The acreage has continued to grow since, and California alone has some 600,000 acres of charred forest. YREKA (AP) — One of five complexes of fires that continue to burn in Klamath National Forest was so hot that the soil melted and fused together, creating a moonscape, officials said. But most other Northern California blazes are under control and officials are turning their attention f toward restoring more than 600,000 acres charred during the past month. A total of 216,516 acres have been devastated by the fires in Klamath, fire information officer Nora; Laughlin said Friday. :v She said the fire that is looking;: "the least good" is the Chilkool; complex, which began Thursday; and so far has bumcd 21,495 acres.;; There are 1,351 firefighters on thd> site and 28 miles of line. >v The Salmon complex is bumingX: in extremely rugged country and< there are no control or containment " estimates, Laughlin said. A total of 2,371 firefighters are working 120 miles of line to battle the blaze, which has burned 49,115 acres. "One spot burned so hot that the soil melted and fused together," Laughlin said. "It looked like a tmoonscape." The Happy Elk complex has burned 100,096 acres and is being fought by 2,276 firefighters along 189 miles of line. About 542 firefighters along 108 miles of line arc fighting the Kclscy-Sciad complex, which has burned 42,485 acres. Laughlin said that fire is "looking pretty good" and is pJmost completely contained. Greenspan seemed to counter that speculation in the past week, when he declared he saw scant evidence that inflation was accelerating. But a day after he spoke, the government reported that the Consumer Price Index increased 0.5 percent in August, for its sharpest rise since January. Unfortunately for those who would plan their financial strategies based on what the Fed does or doesn't do from here on out, market analysts have some trouble agreeing on how to read the historical relationship between the discount rate and stock prices. In the past week, thanks to a record single-day rise of 75.23 points on Tuesday, the Dow Jones industrial average put together a net advance of 45.53 to 2,570.17. The New York Stock Exchange composite index rose 2.78 to 179.14; the American Stock Exchange market value index edged up .84 to 354.50, and the NASDAQ composite index for the over-the-counter market increased 1.02 to 441.88. Volume on the Big Board averaged 179.99 million shares a day, against 165.03 million the week before.

Most of us have had this experience. The problem arises because your camera "sees" from a single point, somewhat as you do with one eye closed. It helps to survey the scene with one eye closed before you shoot. That way, you see what the camera will show. You may find that you want to change your vantage point or find a "frame", such as an archway or a low-hanging branch, for your picture, to add depth. Analyze your finished pictures to determine how you could have obtained the results you hoped for. Our job is to help you take better pictures. We can supply the film and top quality photo finishing, and we'll check your pictures and offeriuggestions if you wiah.
