tw« r f, a n it ei ol ft P! LC 5 I .e 7 AM & is n< Ml is is is Sees Better Times Rest of the Year By SAM DAWSON AP Bu s iness News An a |VSf NEW YORK (API-More jobs, higher ,take-)iome pay, plentiful bargains, better selections—these are the good things seen in store for you the rest of this year. Bigger tax bills, costlier services, slightly higher interest rates, and lingering imemploycmont among the unskilled—these arc the 'bad probabilities. Both sets are short-term prospects. They nre the guesses of the majority of the economic soothsayers, based on indications the economy will enjoy a healthy IT quiet summer and move ahead steadily if slowly in the fall. The experts divide sharply on .the longer range outlook. Some see a big upsurge in economic •growth, getting undar way early •next year. The contrary minded .fear the current plans to stimu- Jate such growth will bring either .a feverish but short lived boom or a creeping and debilitating inflation. i Let's look nt the short ferm prospects. JOBS — more but still not enough. Increasing industrial output al,ready means longer work weeks. And after a summer bobble for iplant vacations, it should bring .more jobs by fall. The service industries should absorb still more .workers. But contraction in unskilled job opportunities is likely ;t.o continue for some time. INCOMES - a bit higher for many. . Wage-scale trends are still upward, with the business recovery encouraging union leaders to ask more and with the effectiveness of Washington's restraint pleas fluestionable. Corporation profits will still be pinched by rising costs, but dividend payments tend to hold up well. Rents are weakening in a few areas, but rising in others. MONEY-still fairly easy. The best bet is that the financial agencies will keep money and .credit plentiful if the recovery is at a measured pace. Some relaxing of mortgage terms are in the cards, but other interest rates may stiffen as business picks up. PRICES—mark ups and mark downs fairly balanced. The cost of living probably will rise, -but with seasonal trends the .main influence. In spite of production costs there is much price .cutting now .in industrial materials. And for£v consumers; keen competition foi-/saTes .is -keeping bargains plentiful. So too is the spread of discount houses into new areas and under new sponsorship by older retailing forms. SHORTAGES-few if any. Industry ran produce more of almost anything, save its newest products, than Americans are currently -prepared to- buy. There are eager foreign suppliers looking for openings. Only an international flareup could change the general picture. Friday, June 30, 1961 Defense of Berlin Is Under Study •y JOHN M.

Stevenson cautioned the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today against imposing severe restrictions on military aid lo Latin- American countries for the pro- lection of their "internal security." Stevenson, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told the committee that many of these countries will need patrol craft, helicopters and arms to protecl their coast lines from Castro-exported communism. Stevenson, who has just completed a tour of Latin America, spent 2'/2 hours telling the committee of his findings and giving his views on foreign aid. The session was behind closed doors but Chairman J. William Fulbright, D-Ark., said Stevenson felt Ihe $4.8 billion foreign aid bill, which the committee is con- iidcring, should be based on the principle of self-help economic projects, without spelling out to many details of its administration.

Arab diplomats in Cairo have Khrushchev Seeks Face Saving Out BY WILLIAM L. RYAN Associated Pres« News Analyst loo issue ' Khrushchev appears to be seeking a face-saving way out of an uncomfortable situation—and trying to .salvage some profit from it. Tiie Soviet premier seems to be offering President Kennedy and the Western allies a deal: Just an innocent 'looking concession or. two in exchange for pos'poning Khrushchev's year-end deadline for a very perilous showdown on Berlin. The curious coincidence of Kennedy and Khrushchev statements on the same day concerning the West Berlin issue raises speculation about backstage diplomacy looking toward some sort of negotiation. But from President Kennedy the Soviet leader has nothing more tangible than a statement that the United States is ready to discuss any proposals that protect the rights of the people in West Berlin, isolated no miles inside Communist East Germany. The President has a Jittle more from Khrushchev: An implication that there is something to negotiate and a statement denying any plans for a new Berlin blockade What is behind this Khrushchev bid? n been conferring continuously since the crisis broke.

The range and actions under study within the government is reported to .include partial mobilization, increasing NATO strength in Europe, a new round of East- West negotiations on Berlin and a stepped up civilian defense program; . The National Security Council, embracing the President's top military and diplomatic advisers, was summoned to meet at the White House, this afternoon. Kennedy announced Wednesday that proposals for dealing with the Berlin situation will be discussed. Proposals for action are going to the President from the State and Defense departments and other government agencies. At Kennedy's request they are being pulled together in a report being prepared by former Secretary of State Dean Acheson. Highly placed officials indicate that Kennedy, Secretary of State Dean Rusk- and other administration leaders are thinking of acting on two fronts as the Berlin crisis develops during the next few months: 1. Military—They intend to take steps that would get the United States and its allies ready for a Berlin showdown if Soviet Premier Khrushchev presses his Berlin demands to that 'point. At the same time they hope the steps will impress upon Khrushchev the determination of the United States to back up its commitments to protect West Berlin against Communist pressures. 2. Diplomatic — They seriously are considering proposing a new round of East-West negotiations on Berlin within the framework of the over-all problem of divided Germany. Such a proposal, if Jmally decided on, probably will be made in the npxt few Weeks/ 1 Kennedy expects to send a note on the Berlin situation to Khrush- Miss Monroe Is in Hospital NEW YORK (AP) - Actress Marilyn Monroe has been hospitalized for the fourth time in five months. The blonde beauty was taken'by ambulance Wednesday from her Manhattan apartment to Polyclinic Hospital, suffering from what a spokesman described as a mild intestinal disorder. Accompanying her on the ride to the hospital was her second Joe DiMaggio, whom she divorced to marry playwright Arthur Miller. She later divorced Miller. An attendant on the ambulance which took Miss Monroe to Polyclinic said she appeared to suffer abdominal pains "here and there" during the cross-town trip. Auxiliary Elects MIAMI BEACH, Fla.

Farish, 07, lawyer and author of a novel "Timothy Pine" scheduled for publication later this year, died Tuesday in a hos- jpilfil here. He was n native of Conway County. jchcv in a week or 10 days. But, jas presently planned, this note primarily will be a reply to a memorandum Khrushchev gave Kennedy in Vienna June 3-4. The reply is expected to tell Khrushchev formally that his proposed peace treaty with Communist East Germany cannot wipe out Allied rights to maintain forces in West Berlin and to sup- lily them by surface and air- routes across East Germany. Washington officials reported: a new East German regulation decreed Wednesday would be ignored. The regulation states that radio-equipped planes of nations not havnig air agreements with East Germany must receive special permission after Aug. 1 to cross East Germany. Western rights for air access to West Berlin are in no way dependent upon approval or disapproval of the East German Communists. Kennedy spoke at his news con-: ference Wednesday of, the possK bility of negotiations with the Soviet Union on the Berlin problem. He said the United States; was ready "to discuss any proposals" which would increase' West Berlin's security and inde-i pendence. , About the same time Khrush-i chev also said in a speech at the: Kremlin that he was prepared to "negotiate honestly." British Prime Minister Harold Machillan had mentioned the possibility of negotiations in a statement in Parliament on Tuesday. U.S. officials said there probably would be some advantage to -he Western powers in taking the initiative now in formally proposing negotiations. By that means they mifiht |-,e jiblo lo decide at least in part the subject' matter of such negotiations. Hope StcrV Published «v*rv weekday offernom STAft HmiJHINfl CO. Mr*.
