A; "Much as I appf6Ve of the type of investments you want to make, and as impressed an I am with yoUr enthusiasm and your taking th& time to read up on investing) 1 must also speak out in favor of paying doctors. As a matter of fact, it's a good idea to have all your debts under j conitrol before you start your .investment program. AfckMrdon't think it's a good idea to plunge too deeply into pn investment program without sorte prior experience, ni* matter how well read one is on the subject. ^ , , ;#So; why don't you get a group of .friends together and form an Jnyesthient dub? This ; would ^ye'you.some practical exper- iehce, and would hold down your investments while you were Itarning. Diverting $10 to $15 a 'month away from your doctor's paymeri t, proba.bly will not cause him to object too strenuously: A "•' < ' ,'Q. I bought-American Cement at'• little more than $13 a •hare. It ii now quoted at $8. Should I tell? >.-* J t * , A. The drop by American Cement stock is really no differ- ent'from what's been happening to a lot of good stocks. Ask yourself why you bought .'t* in' the first, place. 'If you bought it for income, you aro better off,now than when you bought. Annual dividends on this stock are now 60c a year oer 'Share. When you bought, dividends were only 50c. 1 If'y°u'acquired it for appreciation/ it wasn't a particularly good- selection at the time you bought it. But without really meaning to be facetious, let me point out that your chances for appreciation are better from $8 •than, from $13. • . 'The cement business has had problems for several years with over-capacity and excessive competition. 'But this seems in be .working -out. There has been no £ construction let-up, so • it Should have the same growing markets'in the future it enjoy- ed in the past. 0.

He wants me to sell. Tha cempiny hat afwayt baen godd to rn», however, «hJ T would feel dfeloyJ If I de- $erted it now. Can you adylte me? A, Loyalty is a wfrn-derful a,t bibute and I really have no desire to knock it. However, when it Comes to stock buying and stock selling it can cause you problems. Rather than looking Upon your slock as' an old tried fend true fri&nd, regard it is you would a ride on a locomotive: as long a<s the locomotive is taking you where you want'to'go, elortg for the ride; but whan the engine runs' out o.f stsam, you'd bolter firtd anoithsr way of reaching your dectlnatlftn. Your machinery company paid dividends bo&iuse it, was mak'uiig mcuey - not bscause you were loyal to it. You're dealing with* dollars, and if you want to keep your dollars, you should put them in a firm that will hslp you do just that. A firm that is manufacturing a product that is becoming obsolete and which has not kept up with the times by developing new products doesn''t sound to ma like the b3st place to keep your money - past favors notwithstanding.
