Short Term Interest Rates Rising By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Money is ;elting tighter and short-term in- erest rates are rising. At the ame time, Americans are in- reasing their instalment debt to ew heights and banks and other enders are competing hard for ew outlets for their cash on and. The opposing trends are alarm- ng some on both sides of the redit fence. The -debate over heap money vs. dear—never en- rely stilled-'-is due to break out oudly again. The spurt in the cost of short- erm borrowing is reflected in the ise this week in the U.S. Treas- ry's 91-day bills' yield to 3.335 ier cent, highest since May 26, 960. The money managers had U. S.

Mm & Honored ow Birthday WQOPByRN - Roy Arnold was ' given A WBSbp Wrttotey dinner 5n We 83rd birthday Sunday at the Janned it that way. They recent- y raised from 3 per cent to 3.5 er cent the discount rate which lember banks are charged to X>ITO\V from the Federal Reserve anks. The aim is to put yields so high hat idle dollars will stay in this ountry instead of flowing abroad o upset further our international ayments, with resulting strain n the dollar and on our gold re- erves. Some feel the money managers re also convinced that credit has een too easy. The conservatives cite the rise f instalment credit outstanding o more than $50 billion, due argely to the near record sales f autos and increased purchas- ig of big ticket appliances on me. They also note that some banks ave been stretching the time in hich auto loans can be repaid, nd charge that some financial istitutions have, been lending money on mortgages where the credit risk was higher than they would have approved awhile back. Increased use of credit by stock speculators also is charged. Conservative financial circles always shudder when credit standards are being relaxed. But those who see economic growth as today's main goal disagree. They want even easier money. They argue that cheaper short- term money aids smaller businessmen in their day-to-day activities. They contend that longer term borrowing must be easy and cheap if business is to expand and thus create new jobs for the unemployed, a sizable group that threatens to increase. Easier money advocates also want more homes built with li nancing readily available at terms that middle and lower income families can afford. And the huge instalment debt has been a bulwark of many consumer industries that otherwise would see their sales dwindle. Congo in Financial Difficulty tl.V KOBlN l». MANNOCK ' LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo (AP)—Premier Cyrille Adoula was in a financial jam when he went to Europe for economic talks. He has returned lo find himself slill between the devil and the deep blue sea. The devil is the specter of national bankruptcy from runaway nflation and missive government over-spending. The alternative is a devaluation of the Congo franc. This is being urged on Adoula by nternational experts. A long-standing problem be came urgent three weeks ago. The United States, the Congo's main source of aid, suspended two important items of aid in July in an attempt to force through re- orms. These items were money to fi- lance the import of consumer ;oods to fill yawning gaps on the helves of Congo shops and money or public works projects. Last r ear these accounted for nearly ialf the $73 million the United States poured into the Congo. Experts say the current exchange rate of 65 Congo francs to the dollar is unrealistic. Some ad- ocate a devaluation of up to 500 per cent for some imports. They say the present rate penalizes exporters, favors importers and encourages smuggling. This is costing the Congo mil- ions of dollars a year. Diamonds, coffee, tea, rubber, cotton and palm oil are being slipped acros! vide-open frontiers while customs men are bribed to look the other way. Some importers have been smuggling out goods bought cheaply abroad with foreign exchange from the Congo's paper- thin reserves and selling them in neighboring countries where they fetch high prices in hard currency. There has also been brisk illicit trafficking in surplus food donated by the United States to feed j hungry Cdhgolese. American officials here tear their hair at the sight of this food in Brazzaville, capital of the former French Congo. This smuggling was one of the reasons for the cuts in aid, although shiploads of food are still arriving. Most experts are agreed that a devaluation, accompanied by other reforms, must come quickly if this drain on the Congo's economic strength is to be halted before the country bleeds to death. But government over-spending is likely to hit 17 billion Congo francs — about $260 million — this year, according to some experts. And internal prices have risen 300 per cent since 1960. Informed sources said Belgium agreed in talks with Adoula to assume responsibility for almost ialf of the Congo's debt of 46 billion francs. These sources said Belgium would take over the bulk of the foreign debt of 26 billion francs Family plnnur HARD1N — Mr. and Mrs. Lyn die Caselton and family were hosts at a family dinner at their home near Hardin Sunday, in hon or of the 37th wedding anniversary of Mrs. Caselton's parents Mr. and Mrs. Allen Goesvey of Griggsville.

LONDON-A Catholic Church at Clifton, Nottingham, now be (ng constructed, will have the piain altar jn the middle of the phtirch so that 5 the congregation can gather round it. PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - A year ago today, a well-rehearsed band of white-gloved shotgun bandits held up a small U.S. mail truck in this historic town and made off with the nation's biggesl cash haul—$1,551,277. The only thing to top it in the world was the estimated more than $7 million taken last week from a train at Cheddington, Eng land, by a well-drilled gang o about 30 masked men. For a full year, a crew of posta inspectors—sometimes 60, and as many as 75—has worked on the Plymouth case. To date, none of Ihe money has been found. William F. White, chief New England postal inspector, is in charge of the dogged pursuit of the bandits. He is a patient man He makes it clear that he cannot divulge all the information the inspectors have uncovered. He did say this: Investigators have made progress; they have solid suspects. He has "the highest hopes the case will be solved before the second anniversary." White takes pride in pointing out that the postal service has a rec ord of 99 per cent convictions. Only witnesses to the robbery were the victims—Philip Schena driver of the truck, and guard Patrick Barrett. They were headed for the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston with money picked up from Cape Cod banks. At the outset, White said he be lieved the gang consisted of five men and a woman. A year latei he said the question of whether a woman was involved is still open to discussion. Reward money totaling $200,000 has been offered by various agencies. The biggest previous cash rob bery in the United States was the 1950 Brink's heist in Boston. The loot then was $1,219,000. Eight men are serving life for it.
