A mutual fund, salesman is trying to sell us a program in $12. price stock which we would pay $500 down and $100 a month. The profit picture he paints looks fantastic on paper, but we are wondering if sums this large are advisable, considering the national deficits. I also notice that investment clubs invest considerably less than $100 a .month and we feel this is more in line with what we can afford. What do you advise? Is the picture on mutuals really as rosy as our salesman says? A. The fund you mentioned has done well for the past several years. If you think the $100 a month program suggested by the salesman is too much, I urge you by all means to tell him so. It would be .unfortunate for you to bom mit yourself to payments so large as to work a hardship. It' you tell the salesman you think $100 a month is too much, I'm sure he will bs able to offer a program from the same fund in line with your budget. Whether the fund will continue to present a rosy picture of prosperity cannot be answered with any certainty. But it is my conviction that a sensible pro* gram of common stock investment, whether through a mutual fund or otherwise, represents your best bet as an inflation* hedge in the future. Government deficits are one force producing inflation. One important fact to bear in mind about investment clubs versus mutual funds: mutual funds are set up to invest your money (at a price) for you; investment clubs are set up to teach the neophyte investor how to look after his own invest;-; ments. You can organize an investment club with a group of your friends and set the amount of the investment at any figure you wish. In most dubs the individuals put in $10 or $20 a month. . As with mutual funds, there is no guarantee that your club will be .successful. But the average club has done quite well, especially after it has been in existence long enough for its members to learn and adhere to sound investment prinioples as advocated by the National Association of Investment Clubs. Q. A friend said his broker is suggesting that he buy warrants of a certain company. I get the idea that warrants are some thing like bonds, but am still confused. Can you explain? A. There is a big difference between bonds and warrants. Sometimes warrants are attached to bonds as a sort of "come on" to get you to buy them. ' Bonds have a fixed dollar value, whether warrants will have much or little value depends on the course of future events. A warrant is an option, the same as the real estate option on a house, except that it gives the bond holder the right to buy a share of stock in a company at a certain fixed price, regardless of the current market price of the stays below $12, your warrants lave no value. Convertible bonds work in much the same way: You can convert your bonds into common stock at any time you wish, though usually both warrants and convertible bonds have expiration dates, after which the option cannot be exercised. Once issued, warrants sell independently from the other security with which they may have been issued. If the security they represent a right to buy at a pric e goes up in price subs tan tially their value can rise rapid ly. ' ' . .••;•-•• • :• Interested in starting an investment club?

Mayne advocated legislation o provide a federal income tax credit to individuals for the ex- >enses of higher education.. "The increase in interest rates ast week was the. fourth : this year;, all directly caused .by the nflationary pressures generated jy the high spending of the Johnson administration," Mayne said. "Unless the Johnson administration curbs its requests for new domestic spending programs, many of which are un needed and unwantad, or at [east which could be deferred unless Congress shows some independence and refuses to allo cate funds for these new programs, these inflationary pressures will continue to build and interest rates will continue to climb. Can there be any doubt that the democratic party is now the party of high interest?" Mayne continued, "High inter est rates create hardships not only for those on fixed incomes and salaries, for the farmer, and for the small businessman who is prevented from expanding and perhaps must discontinue his operations because of his inability to borrow — they create a very great and real hardship for those young men and women who must borrow if they are to obtain higher education. "Far too many young men and women that had planned to begin or to continue their college or graduate educations this fall will now become 'drop-outs' because of the Johnson administration's policies. "Educational costs have been increasing, at a phenomenal rate, increasing in both private and public higher education institutions an average of 25 per cent during the Johnson and Kennedy administrations. It has been predicted that tuition will rise another 50 per cent in private and public higher educational institutions over the next ten years. These rising costs of higher education will close the doors of education to many highly qualified istudents of limited means, including many from this district, unless some corrective action is taken quickly." Mayne concluded, "The most appropriate and effective device for relieving students and their parents of the rising costs of higher education is a tax credit against an individual's income tax for the expenses of higher education for himself or any other individual. "This would be an effective and fair way of affording direct relief to the people involved, with minimum administrative expense and minimum federal interferen.ce p,r..controls.. - t ,~ "Perhaps because it is so simple a solution, it is vigorously opposed by the Johnson adminr istration, which apparently feels no program is worth its salt unless it involves billions of dollars and thousands of bureaucrats and centralizes controls in Washington." 66th HOBO DAY AND National Annual Hobo Convention Tuesday, Aug. 23 Britt, Iowa GALA PARADE 9:30 a,m, i lection and Coronation of King and Queen of the Hoboes ... 11 a.m. Free Mulligan Stew ... 12 noon Queens, bands, floats galore. 3rd Annual Hobo Day Art Show 10:30 a.m, to 8 p.m. in City Park.
