PAGE EIGHTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1963 Business Confidence Is Growing By SAM I)A\VSON AP Business Nc*\vs Aniil.vsl NEW YORK (API-Confidence is gaining on caution as autumn gets going. Some basic industries like steel and aluminum are revising upward their performance goals. Retailers note with pleasure that consumers aren't retrenching. On the contrary they are spending a bit more and going further into debt, which spells confidence in their ability to repay. Ail this is over and beyond what the stock market or Congress may do. Each will put its mark on both business and consumer confidence. But at the moment Americans seem to channel much of their caution into assessing the bull market and congressional moves. They may hope for. but don't count on congressional pump priming, such as a tax cut soon or an increase in government spending above the usual one which the public lias come to take for granted. Both consumers and business men seem to think they're going to do all right anyway, even if the market and Congress are unpredictable. Caution is far from out of fashion. It still tempers buiness thinking, and thus puts a brake on any urge for a full-throttle boom. But summer has been kinder to much of the economy than many had hoped for back in June. So autumn comes on stage with built- in confidence that business should see itts normal. fall advance and perhaps a little bit more. Steel companies are now planning production increases. Steel sales were higher than expected this summer, and orders coming in now wouldl point to a 10 .per cent rise in shipments next month. The Aluminum Association reports that record high production in August and the strength of new orders now seem to assure that this year's output will top the hight mark set last year. The Bureau of Public Roads predicts total motor vehicle registrations this year of 3,035,000, up 3.8 per cent from 1962. Personal income totals continue to rise, with monthly fluctuations in the percentage of increase. Incomes now are running at an annual rate of $464.9 Million, a record high.
