MONDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1963 THE REG1STER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS December Is Test Of Year's Business By SAM AP Business DAWSON News Ansii>ht NEW YORK (API-Wisinass —and all ihp producers ami consumers whoso affairs untied directly or indirectly lo it- today ontcrs the final stretch of 1963 with moro than (ho usual Quota of question marks. What happens in the next three or four weeks can remove or deepen— more than in most years — the uncertainties thai cloud the future as the final month starts. December is Ihe month I'hat traditionally makes or hreaks the year for most merchants since it is usually their Invest sales period. And this, in turn, sets a pattern for their suppliers all the way back lo raw materials and countless jobs. It is also a month of bonuses for workers and for stockholders and of Ihe semitrndilion- al year-end rally in the slock market. It is the period for the adjusting of accounts for lax purposes, for asscsiiiR the temper of the times, and the prospects for fho months just ahead. But today plans—private, corporate and political—are heint; reassessed.

Most business men venturing an opinion say that Prcldcnt •Johnson's administration promises changes of manner moro than of policies. They expect him fo continue President John 1''. Kennedy's major programs. But Ihe manner in which the new chief executive goes about it interests them most just now. It could determine both the chances of putting these plans into effect and their effects. Some are counting on his past ability to command congressional suport to gel the tax cut most businessmen wanl faster than his predeccossor could have. They also hope this talent may settle many other legislative uncertainties, domestic and international, in the coming weeks. Many note that Johnson's congressional voting record signals that he will be a spending pres idenl—that is, undeterred by fis cal theories or priorities if he feels projects are needed, either for themselves or for aiding the economy should it stumble Some have commented that Johnson seemed less at home with economists than did his predecessor and perhaps more at ease with businessmen litem selves. Since many industrial leaders tend to link economists with theorists, they breathe more easily in the more practi cal approach. Consumer confidence will be tested this month in the stores at the auto dealers, at Ihe fi nance and mortgage offices. In the relatively few trading days remaining, traditional Decern her shopping could recover lost ground. Retail trade in the first 10 months was running ahead of VM2, even if it faltered in the final tragic days of November Form News WASHINGTON (API - Agriculture officials, anxious to pump some money into farmer's pockets before I he Iflfil election, are thinking more and more ot n voluntary—rather than a mandatory—wheat pro-! gram. j Mandatory programs have i been in effect lor the last 10 1 years, but farmers in a refer- \ endum conducted in May, re- i jected mandatory controls for j the 1964 crop. ] Secretary of Agriculture Or- [ ville L. Freeman is reported 1OJ feel that Congress might he in mood to pass a voluntary wheat program early next year, in time lo make it at least partly effective for the l!)fil | crop. I If such a program were en- 1 acted, farmers could f|U.i|ify for it by plowing under already i planted winter wheal in excess of their allotted acreage. If no wheat legislation is enacted, a sharp drop in wheal prices in 19(>1 is expected. The price support level would drop to aboul $1.2") a bushel compared with the present national average of 1.82. And only farmers who stayed within their acreage allottmenls would be eligible for supports. Under a mandatory program, a farmer must slay within his allotment or be penalized for exceeding it. Under a voluntary program, he would have an option of living within his allotment or exceeding it. He would face no penally for exceedm\' his Allotment oilier than loss ol price supports.

By HAL BOYLE NFAV YORK (AP)-Things a columnist might never know If he didn't open his mall: As more of us are born and more of us live longer, Americans seem to be Retting both older and younger. By 1970, it is estimated, half the population will bo under 20 or over 65. In the last 15 years Ihe percentage of the average consumer dollar spent on food has dropped from 31.-1 to 23.7, the percentage spent on clothing has fallen from 13.7 to 10.1, but we're spending more on such things as housing, foreign travel education and medical care. It has been found that kissing sp<ds up the ordinary man's pulse only five beats a minute.

Activity will cleanse and (brighten it."—Samuel Johnson. In Singapore 29 per cent of 'the duelling units contain more j : than five persons for each room.! (ine in every five American m.nfarm families has an income o: SiO.ODO or more a year. John F. Kennedy is the second U.S. president to be survived by his father. The other . was Warren G. Harding. Three presidents were outlived by i their mothers—Kennedy, James Knox Polk and James A. Garfield. New England folklore: If it snows Ihe day you marry, you will wind up rich. If a young ,:irl likes cals better than dogs, she will become an old maid. The baby who doesn't fall downstairs before he is a year old will turn out a fool.
