Many Hep* February Slow for Business TheyH Do It Every Time .*—..«—. By Jimmy Hatlo 6.MCRACK A1F0.CO. MOVED INTO THE Bid TIME.— NO MORE PENNY-ANTE ORDERS- CARLOAD LOTS ONLY— So 616 ORDERS THE SALES FORCE (3ETS, BUT THE PLANT STILL PUTS THEM OUT IN DRIBS AND DRABS — Lit* Begins ot forty , PROMISED MB POUR ^ HUNDRED GROSS OP YOUR •mo-WAV BOTTLE OPEMER3 THE. FIFTEENTH .'/SO FAR YOUR CRUMMY OUTFIT'S By SAM DAWSON AP Builneti New* Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Businessmen like everyone else are used to sitting out February. The weather can snarl production schedules and transportation and delay the start of new projects. Industrial production, therefore, is as llkrly as not to drop or slacken and unemployment to rise. The post-Christmas sales have seen their hcydey and any Easter buildup hopes are chilled by February's winds and snows. Thfce years ago the last recession hit the bottom of the cycle in February. This time businessmen are more optimistic than then or even than just a year ago—but for the months ahead more than for this one. Yol, many are hoping that, weather permitting, this February won't be as glow as the month usually is, even If It does have an extra day In which to be ornery. Just ahead Is the promise of larger take-home-pay — perhaps starting with the first of next month. Merchants aft counting on that to give their spring busies a big push, although some wish Easter didn't come quite so early this year. The construction Industry Is planing for a nice advance, once the weather lets outdoor projects get under way. Recent contract awards point to a busy spring. And even In February some of the big wheels of Industry are turning faster than usual. Steel output is the highest since last June. And demand Is interpreted by most mills tt assuring a busy spring. MpNIIMIMMNHBIHBIBPMm SEAT BELTS 7J9SS fr. Oahr ALUM'S SAHTY CINTER 414 M. Stk Auto production this month is predicted to run 9 per cent ahead of last February. And this comes on top of January output that set a record for the month. New orders for factory goods managed to rise In spite of the weather this winter and in disregard of the long uptrend in business that many feared would be leveling of. Orders for soft goods did most of the rising. This may be because merchants are counting on sales of these products getting the first big lift from the rise in take-home pav after the federal tax cut. fcVuf manufacturers all along the line are raising their sights. This shows up in a sizable increase in recent weeks In plans of business to spend for expansion and ne"w equipment. This February has one thing that even the snowdrifts can't stall. Almost daily big and small corporations have been! reporting pleasant Increases In' their profits. The reports ire for the year that is past. But many have inspired raises in dividend rates. And this extra money will reach stockholders In the v/eeks ahead, some of it even In the dour month of February. The expectation, also, is that '.he trpnd will continue. Once this month is over, everyone keeps telling himself, all should be better.

Education Writer j CHICAGO (AP)—Many high : school students are habitual i smokers, and it's almost an 'even bet that the recent government report linking cigarettes and lung cancer won't discourage the habit. That is the opinion of high school principals attending a national convention in Chicago, given in response to an Assoc- ated Press questionnaire. Almost two-thirds of the principals surveyed said 20-60 per cent of their students smoke regularly. More than one-quarter place the figure at 40 per cent or more. The principals were asked: "From your observations, do you believe the government report has tended to discourage student smoking?" Fifty-six per cent said "yes," 44 ner cent said "no." Virtually all the principals reported their schools regularly provide classroom Instruction about the dangers of smoking. The rest said such instruction BEST SEED COMPANY KEDS FEEDS FERTILIZERS SEED CLEANING AND TREATING AGRICULTURAL CHEMICALS Phone BR 6-6921 102 S. *th St. Garden City, Kansas February II, 1964 Mr. Irrigation Farmer South West, Kama* Deer Mr. Farmer: k tfct MitrvftM ftrtlllMr yen er» «•!•« tto pr>ptr kind for yen?

The principals reported that stale laws which prohibit teenagers from purchasing or using cigarettes are "usually not en- fective." Many local governments limit their legal efforts to barring smoking on school buses or within several hundred yards of thn school buildings. Several principals reported they have taken action into their own hands. At Sibley High School In West St. Paul, Minn., students caught smoking on the school ,,'rounds are suspended on the first offense and expelled for the second. Estimates of ths percentage of students who <:nioke ranged from "none," at Duchesne (Utah) High to 60 per -upt at Milford, Mich., and Hamden, Conn. I Over-all, 31 per cent of the . principals reported that up to 39 per cent of their students smoke habitually. Twenty por cent said 20-29 per cent, 11 per cwit said 30-39 per cent, 12 s.ud 40-49 'per cent, and 16 per cent said J50-BO per cent. Several principals reported efforts by students to discourage their classmates from i smoking. Leslie D. Wells, principal at West Anchorage, Alaska, High , said, "A ;;e\v nonor plan no- smoking campaign this yeai tended to discourage the habit land show our younger students •that the school t'anvlv does not ; believe people of high school i age should smoke.

About half the states invoke "responsible relative laws" as a lequirement in granting old age assistance benefits. When needy elders In these stares apply for aid. a social worker investigates their children's finances and determines how much the children should be contribuling. If children refuse they are taken to court. There's no denying children should look out for their aged parents: It's only right that parents who have sacrificed for ?heir offspring should be sacrificed for in return when they are old and in need. But I don't like to see this delicate family obliga- cion adjudicated by threat of law. If fhe children aren't motivated to heJp Mom and Dad based on a natural sense of responsibility and affection, I don't think society will accomplish anything constructive by applying legal pincers. Here's rny reasoning: 1. Mrst children of needy parents are in severely limited straits themselves. If you force them to contribute a few dollars from their meager incomes their standard of living is threatened and the> are suie to resent their parents. 2. Many sensitive but needy parents will endure acute need and hardship rather than re- Apportionment Passage Seen CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP)A reapportionment bill increasing the strength of urban counties in the House of Delegates at the expese of rural areas appears headed for passage in the West Virginia Legislature's special session. The bill is up for first reading In the house .today. It would increase the number of delegates from 100 to 106 and combine 16 rural counties which have 17 delegates into eight districts sharing 12 delegates.. Ten counties would gain delegates, one would lose and 28 would stay at their present strength. A unanimous West Virginia Supreme Court decision Friday nullified a 1963 reapportionment act and caused Gov. W. W. Barron to call the extraordinary session. The court ruling made a new apportionment necessary for the election of legislators this year HEALTH CAPSULES by Michael A. Pell!, M.D. PO MEN OR WOMEN HAVE MORE TROUBLE APJUSTING TO OLP ACE "?

(Published in the Garden City Telegram on the I Hh d'ay of February. 1964) CITY OF GARDEN CITY, KANSAS STATEMENT OF FUND BALANCES quest assistance if it means subjecting theii children to investigation 3. Collection costs may exceed amounts exacted. In California only ten per cent of the children of old age assistance applicants are found able to contribute anything, and their contributions average only $4 weekly. 4. Oilier nations with more advanced social programs, such as England, Scandinavia, and Canada, pay national pensions without reference to the recipients' children. What are opposing arguments? Many legislators feel that in a democratic nation such as ours citizens must be firmly encouraged to stand on their own two feet economically. They take the view that those who reach old age without adequate funds must be supported by their children — either voluntarily or via legal pressures — before they have a right to the taxpayer's beneficence. <iarrff>n City Telegram "Sure it makes old age assistance unattractive," one offical told me, "but it's charity and it should be unattractive. Make it too easy and you'll kill the incentive of folks to work, save, and provide for their needs in old age." Maybe so. But this column contends that pracitcal and humane considerations suggest we must eventually turn away from the responsibe relative laws and assist needy ejders as required without reference to their children's •circumstances.
