But Pups Still Popular, Too Just Plain Rats Are the Rage in State Full of Exotic Pets STOCKS MOVE HIGHER — For the second straight week, the Associated Press average of 60 stocks moved higher, closing Friday at 323.7 from 321.1 a week earlier, as shown above. Led by livestock, the commodity index advanced at 172.5 from 172.4 in the preceding period. By Bill Mccormick NEW YORK— (NEA)—Exploring the animal world of lower Manhattan, the man had just come upon a tank of pearl scale goldfish when he heard the voices. (Pearl scale goldfish are about four inches long and as big around. If they had beards and wore overalls they would look like Haystack Calhoun, the professional wrestler. They are among the most expensive of all pet fish, selling for $13 apiece or $25 a pair.) The indistinguishable babble of tinny voices sounded exactly like the noise that comes from the two-way radio in a taxicab. The man looked around for the source. He didn't find it in a mechanical device. It came from two mynah birds, in separate cages, who,were carrying on a spirited conversation across another cage in which an unruffled parrot sat silently nodding owlish agreement. Wrapping Iguana Trefflich's is like that. Henry Trefflich was in the middle of a bunch of jars of beast and bird feed which gives the front of the large pet shop and animal importing firm the atmosphere of The rat finally died mysteriously and family went into mourning for months. whole Hunt Is On for Fast Train Is surface transportation at 200 miles per hour and upward possible? We have the need. We have the technical know-how. Can we' fit the two together? A government body is going into the possibilities. It is called the Northeast Corridor Project and was started by President Kennedy in 1962. Its purpose is to see what can be done to rejuvenate transportation in the area of the United States which has the densest traffic. Some of the answers proposed by American industrial researchers have been compiled by Fortune magazine. ' Four of their ap- poaches appear here. TIRE TRAINS—Westinghouse has come up with a feeder-line commuter train which could also link into intercity systems. The key is computer control. Guided by an I-beam in the roadway, they can travel 50 miles an hour at two-minute intervals. Lightweight electric cars hold 28 passengers each. LEVACAR—Thin cushions of air eliminate friction in this system from the research and engineering division of Ford. A safety flange holds the 200-passenger car on the smooth square guide rails. Turboprop power would make speeds up to 350 miles per hour possible. an old-fashioned drug or tea store. He was supervising the wrapping of a live iguana for shipment to a lady in the Bronx. "This is nothing," he said as the large, ugly lizard was crammed into' a box. "You should see some of the things that make good pets. Snakes are big. So are tree and horned toads, skunks and ocelots. "Rats, just plain, ordinary old wharf and warehouse rats, are getting more and more popular. I sell a lot of them for rat races." Race for Food The rat races to which Henry referred, it developed, are not part of the hectic pace of atomic age human existence. "They train them actually to race after food," he explained. "Such races are becoming more and more popular and huge sums of money are bet on them." Trefflich either did not know, or would not say where rat races were held— perhaps because authorities frown on gambling except where the state can take a bite of the play—but it was learned later that such contests are a regular feature at a leading New York club. "Rats make good pets, too," Trefflich insisted. "We sold one girl a female rat which she kept at her office. When the girl quit her job, she announced that she was bringing her pet home. Her parents screamed bloody murder, but ultimately fell madly in love with the creature, which the girl trained to do all sorts of tricks— even wake her up in the morning by climbing into bed and nibbling gently on her ear. "The rat finally died mysteriously and the whole fam­ ily went into mourning for months. It wasn't until about a year later that the girl's father confessed he accidentally had stepped on the creature— and it was about a year after he admitted his crime before his wife and daughter began speaking to him again." Trefflich imports a lot of animals for zoos, but many of his orders for large beasts are from private collectors. Upstairs he had a beautiful 6- month-old male lion lying on its back in a cage, looking appealing and just begging you to stick in a petting hand so he could scratch or bite it off. "This goes to a lady in Venezuela tomorrow," Henry said. He did not know what the lady planned to do with the animal. "I have orders now for three live elephants," he said. "From private parties in Virginia, Ohio and California. They cost $3,500 apiece- half down with the order. "Funny thing, one of the orders came from a man whose address is an apartment house. I hope his landlord is an animal lover." Puppies, Monkeys "Don't think all our business is in exotic pets," said Trefflich. "Puppies are still our biggest item, with monkeys next. They're so human, you know." Trefflich, an all-around animal lover, has a special regard for monkeys. From time to time one or more of them escape from his store, invading subways, banks and other unlikely places. Such incidents invariably occur when business is slack and Henry has been accused of engineering the breakouts to attract publicity, a charge he denies. "I don't have to," he says. "Monkeys are smart people, you know." U.S. Manufacturing, Sales Reached Record in May WASHINGTON—G?>)— The Commerce Department says U.S. manufacturing and trade TURBOTUBE — This system came from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Steel casings 15 feet in diameter (shown as transparent for the purposes of the drawing) could carry turbofan - jet - powered cars at 250 to 400 miles per hour. Air-cushion pods would make them near frictionless. More than 100 passengers fit into the 130- foot-long vehicle. Tubes could be under or above ground. sales totaled $77.9 billion in May, a new record high. New orders were flowing into manufacturers at a rate exceeding shipments and unfilled orders rose to $400 million worth during the month, the department said. Inventories increased only $400 million, about half the amount of the previous month's increase. More than half the increase in inventories was attributed to retail automotive dealers who continued the stock buildup they started last fall. Another new record was set in the retail 'sale of both durable and nondurable goods, which rose two per cent each. Sales by auto dealers also rose two per cent, maintaining the high rate that started in December. Racine Firms Rise in Rank in Top 500 The J. I. Case Co. rose to 278th and Western Publishing Co. to 398th last year among U. S. industrial corporations in sales, according to Fortune magazine's 1965 roster of the 500 largest companies. For Case, ranked 312th in 1963, it was an advance of 34 places; for Western, an advance of 35 places. Western was ranked 433d in 1963. Western and Case continue as the only Racine-based corporations in the top 500, but a number of other companies on the list have Racine production facilities. Have Racine Connections Among these, with Racine firm listed first, then parent company and 1964 and 1963 rankings for the parent, are: Hamilton Beach Division (Scovill Manufacturing Co., 295-305); Walker Manufacturing Co. (Kern County Land Co., 362-367); Hoffert Machine (Interlake Steel Corp., 234335); Printing Developments, Inc. (Time, Inc., 146-158);.Wisco Battery Division (Electric Storage Battery Co., 310-306); M-D Blowers, Inc. (Miehle- Goss-Dexter, 465-475); Consumers Co. Division (Vulvan Materials Co., 378-409). Massey-Ferguson Ltd., with Toronto headquarters, is the parent of Massey-Ferguson, Inc., which has its North American parts warehouse in Racine. Fortune will publish a separate ranking of the 200 largest foreign corporations next month. AMC Takes Drop American Motors Corp. ranked 55th, a drop of 11 places from 1963, when it was 44th. Other Wisconsin firms ranking in the top 500 include Allis-Chalmers, ranked 97 for 1964 compared to 104 for 1963; Kimberly-Clark, 113105; A. O. Smith, 201-199; Schlitz Brewing, 259-258; Pabst Brewing, 345-346, Cutler-Hammer, 359-376; Trane, 382-395; Bucyrus-Erie, 477480; Harnischfeger, 482, unranked for 1963; Rex Chain- belt, 472-484, and Clark Oil & Refining, 473, unranked for 1963. Wisconsin companies dropping from the rankings for 1964 after making the list for 1963 were Briggs & Stratton and Consolidated Papers. Briggs & Stratton was 456th for 1963, Consolidated Papers 499th. A number of the ranked corporations achieved sales gains in 1964 but moved down on the list because of the tremendous combined volume gain of the 500 — 8.7 per cent. Total profits for the 500 rose 16.2 per cent. The number of companies with sales of more than $1 billion continued to grow; the new rankings list 55, a gain of six. The top five industrials in 1963 were also the top five last year: General Motors, Standard Oil of New Jersey, Ford, General Electric and Socony Mobil Oil. Chrysler, seventh in 1963, switched places with sixth-ranked U. S. Steel. Obituary and Funeral Notices ANDERSON, MRS. HATTIE (nee Schaller) 2513 S. 88th St. Milwaukee, Wis. Age 74.

Air Force Sergeant Believes He's a Jinx STEAD AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. —(JP)— Staff Sgt. Daniel Flynn thinks he's getting to be a jinx. Flynn, 28, from Pawtucket, JR. I., says 10 Air Force units or installations have been phased out or deactivated aft- ;er he was assigned to them, !or connected with them in any way. It started back in jl955. I Flynn was assigned to the Reno Air Defense Sector at Stead in 1963. Both the air defense unit and the training base will be phased out by mid-1966. The sergeant doesn't know where he'll go next, but the Air Force undoubtedly has its fijogers crossed. MINDING your BUSINESS by Cyrus Barrett, /r. Dear Cy: Is it true the slave traders are turning to computers? Are firms who specialize in finding executive talent for corporations putting qualified individuals on punch cards? If so, they can run me through the machine every Monday morning, until I get something better. Who is using computers to screen executives for jobs? McEvay Dear McEvay: When executive search and recruiting firms think of com- jltem.) While old-line organizations are considering computers, relatively new Career- Ways System of Princeton, N. J., boasts having been built inside them. Gordon G. Sikes, former director of placement for Princeton University, literally turns men into punch cards. After paying the $24 fee, a coded card is issued to "members." From that point on, Sikes' staff and members carry on correspondence through a code number providing "anonymity." According to Career-Ways, "Anonymity stimulates puters, they see red dollar uniquely frank expressions of signs. One organization spent j experience and aspirations, over $250,000 for punch carding executive applicants before realizing it was 30 per cent over budget. With execs being so notoriously available, the head hunters get hundreds of resumes in their weekly mail. (Costs for new file cabinets and file clerks are becoming a|i important expense which make personal evalua-i tion more meaningful." Pertinent data on coded individuals is fed to a computer to match numbers with jobs. Before long you won't need the names and numbers to know the players. Tlie numbers will suffice. HERE WE GO AGAIN!
