THANK YOU, DEAR. 11 WON'T FORGET TO THINK OF THAT TOO. Annual Reports Of Corporations In Mail NEW YORK (AP) — Corporations axe flooding the maJJs with annual reports these days. And their legions of owners can indulge in one of America's most satisfying pastimes —deciding who's the biggest. But a company that's tops when viewed from one angle may not be from another. The biggest money maker, for example, is well down the list of companies with the largest assets. And at least a million more persons prefer to own stock in the company that's the runner-up in profits than to hold shares of the corporation that's top dog in total sales or revenues. The annual see-saw on who is the biggest money maker already has been won. General Motors takes the title for the second straight year. With a record ?2.i25.60G,440 of profits in 1965 it made $329 million more after taxes than did runner-up American Telephone * Telegraph with $1.796,094,000. Jersey Standard Oil was third with $1.035.000.000. But the phone company can claim to be the biggest of all if the measure is total assets. It now has $40.388,648.000. up near- ly $10 billion from 1964. AT&T also i$ far ahead of GM. whose assets are $51.478.546,590. And the auto giant probably trails the oil company, which hasn"! reported yet for IS©, but had $12.489.565.000 in assets at the end of 1964. Papa Monkey Loves To Croon To his New Son DALLAS (AP)—A papa monkey at the Dallas Zoo loves to croon over his newborn, pound- and-a-half son. That is, until it cries. \ Then the babe is plunked back into the arms of the mama, says zoo curator Larry Calvin. Papa's interest revives only when the bawling stops. , The papa is nameless except for his species. Spectacled Lan.- gur, easily spotted by the white rings around the eyes. The baby was born Feb. 24 to become one of the few Asiatic leaf-eaters born in captivity- Looking Ahead BEAUMONT (AP)—As insurance against a day when she might face mounting medical bills, Mrs. Cora James has signed up fox Medicare. She's a healthy 98 years old. These top money maker* in the auto and oil industries are far below the leading banks and insurance companies when it comes to assets. Metropolitan life counted $2U39S.602.000 at the start of 1964 and Prudential $21.015.885.000. The Bank of America reported assets of $16.528.957.604 at the end of 13C5 Jar fuorth place. Chase Manhattan. New York, was fifth with $15,331,407,583. and First National City Bank. New York, sixth with $13,376.787,000. Still another measure of bigness is the total of sates or revenues. Here GM is the champ, as in profits, with sales of $20,733,982,295 in 1965. Jersey Standard reports $12.725.000.000 in revenues, and the phone company $13,051,783.000. Sears. Roebuck's latest figures are <?round $7 billion, while the A&P grocery chain tops 53 billion. Bvs !• tad Decade WACO CAP) — meo wfl! work as bartenders fa the nut decade, a HMMIOB minister believe*. Dr. Graver E. Wwtbcrx, dean of the Institute of at the Texas Ifadieal Center in Houston, told a Baylor audience the church in 10 to 15 years will be much like the Peace Corps. Clergymen wfll seek ministries in bars, he predicted, because "this is where the people are, where they come and pour out their troubles, where the stuff of life is discussed." He said other ministers might well be cab drivers Or Journalists. '1 am convinced that we are absolutely disgusted with the complacency of the church as it is now and we are not going to let it continue this way." Westberg said. "1 don't think you are going to recognize the church." •»•» DEAN BEANE (S A TOUGH OLD COOKIE, SOI'LLUTJST HAVE TO MAKE SURE THIS TIME. THAT X PUT MY BESTFOOT FORWARD!
