The danger of a new recession arises from the fact that several Important fadors are now overextended and therefore are headed for a downturn, said Bassie, who has expressed similar views as a speaker at First National Bank dinner here. "For the first time In the postwar period, all the cyclical factors —atitos, housing, Inventories, and capital outlays, aided and abetted by credit expansion — arc working together," Bnssie reports. For this reason, a new recession, with all cyclical factors turning down in concert, might prove to At South Mihmukee Piasa Indian's Drums Win First in National Contest The drum section of the Piasa Indians Drum and Baton Corps won first place in the National Section competition of the Spectacle of Music over the weekend at South Milwaukee, Wis.

Favorable Factors There are some favorable factors, he points out, that might pre serve the upward economic trend. Further Increases are expected in buslnesso utlays for planl ami equipment, government spending, and the growing use of credit by consumers who have benefitled by strong Income advances since 1961. Nevertheless, even with I h e support of these favorable factors, an economic slowdown must be expected, Bassie staled. "Many optimists now feel that a tax cut is unnecessary despite continuing high unemployment, and some add that we should tighten up on credit and raise interest rates instead."

"Effects of negative influences will not necessarily be ovcrrid- ng, but they are certainly irn porianl enough to change the character of the upswing experienced so far in 1963," Bassio writes.
