By Lcroy I'ope UPI Ruiinosi Wriltc NKVV YORK (UPI) If moving people around is any indication, il appears many companies are not buying the cloudy picture of a coining depression being spread by some economists. It costs the average company lols of money to move an executive, a technical employe even a skilled craftsman Iheso days and it's a fair as- sumption companies won't spend such money if they think business is going to the dogs. Professional relocation com- panies and home buying agen- cies are finding corporations in general are making executive and employe transfers this year at about the same high rate as in 1073. Of course, some transfers MARMADUKE are economy measures. A branch office or a plant is closed because of slow business and some of Ihc more valuable employes have to be absorbed by the company's other opera- tions. But il would appear only about 5 percent of the employes being moved this year are being transferred for thai reason. Most transfers are the result of expansion or re- structuring moves to take ad- vantage of higher business volume, according to the Ticor Relocation Management Co.. which has offices in New York and on the West Coast. Dun Bradstreet has completed for Ticor a second annual survey of corporate transfer trends.

"Transfers are dropping seasonally righl the Kxocutraus spokesman said, "but no more than al this lime lasl year. For the months when transfers are normally most brisk, the number this year has been almost exactly equal to lasl year's." Me also said this appeared lo indicate most companies don't expect a real depression. The Dim Brailslreel survey showed most transfers have been made this year by. retail and wholesale merchandising companies, industrial machinery manufacturers, public utility firms and chemical companies the fewest by mining companies and the rubber industry. However, inflation and light money have created problems for business in moving people. "It's lough to sell homes." said Tieor's chairman Weslnn Ed- wards, "because of the tight mortgage situation. Home companies have to take over a valued employe's home, pay him for il and gamble on selling il later on." On the oilier hand, (he sludy showed transferred executives and other workers have had surprisingly good luck buying or railing homes this year in their new locutions. Only 15 percent of the transferred per- sons had difficulty in finding a place to live at the new job site.
