Manchester Chet is r p o hot sos 362 2073 or 375 2s4s new York a Union Carbide s first six months sales and earnings were at the highest Levels in the corporations history for any half year Birny Mason jr., chairman of the Board said today. First half sales Rose to a record $1,097,231,000. This was 9 per cent above 1965 first half sales of $1,002,084,000. Earnings for the first six months increased 15 per cent to $125,458,000, or $2.08 a share. For the same period last year the corporation earned $109,116,000 or $1.81 a share. Sales and earnings for the second Quarter were also at new highs continuing the succession of nine individual quarterly records. Second Quarter sales increased to $566,710,000. They were up 9 per cent Over 1965 second Quarter sales of $518,-304,000. Earnings for the period were $63,746,000, or $1.06 a share. This was a gain of la per cent Over the $57,340,000, or 95 cents a share earned in the 1965 period. Several factors contributed to these results Mason noted. The principal ones were the High level of the Economy relative Price stability attention to improved operating efficiencies and a significant increase in dividends received from foreign subsidiaries. Sales of All major product groups were Well above the first half of 1965. The percentage increases were approximately the same for each group except carbons for which the higher gain was due to a very heavy demand for batteries and electrodes. The following table gives a quarterly comparison of product group sales commenting on Union Carbide s business outside of the United states or. Mason said that Export sales continued Strong. Sales and earnings of the corporation s foreign subsidiaries and affiliates Are also encouraging and Are ahead of the results achieved in 1965. Mason stated that the High level of demand for Union Carbide s products has resulted in continued near capacity operations in Many product areas. This is True not Only of Basic Well established products but also of some of the corporation s newer products. Capacity for a Lyonal for example a chemical used in new permanent press fabrics is lagging far behind the demand but Between now and the end of the first Quarter next year it will be increased from 30 million to 180 million pounds per year. Similarly other product shortages Are being alleviated by additions to capacity and the expansion program is continuing at a level higher than that of 1965 both domestically and internationally. In addition to the fact that these new facilities will ease the capacity problems now in existence most of them incorporate improvements in process and design and Are expected to have a significant Impact on efficiencies costs and Quality of products. Union Carbide has several major expansion projects presently under construction in the United states or. Mason indicated. Among the new facilities Are two plants for producing ethylene a the starting material for hundreds of chemicals and plastics. Each Plant will have a capacity of Over one billion pounds. More Home space without remodelling new York up a expensive Home remodelling Isnit the Only answer to the need for More storage space a guest room formal dining area or even a basement playroom. If because of budget landlord or whatever improving via structural changes seems out of the question take a fresh look at the problem. Textiles and imagination often will provide the answer according Toth decorating experts at be aunt corp., a producer of textiles and fibres. If one of the objectives is to create storage space for instance be aunt recommends a fresh look at window seats. A relatively inexpensive Chest placed beneath a Bay or picture window can add valuable storage a and seating space and be a decorative asset As Well if the lid is upholstered to match draperies and a few decorative pillows added. Closet space can be created either Side of a window with simple framing removable of necessary for shelves or clothes pole. Drapes Hung from traverse Selling rods will cover this space and at the same time add luxury to the window treatment. A similar arrangement can create an attractive Niche for bed or studio Couch or perhaps for a desk to create a Home office. Attractive window blinds Are another possibility for shielding such storage space attractively. Be aunt suggests that imaginative use of draperies can overcome the Lack of a guest room one of the most needed Home improvement projects. The secret is in curved traverse rods. Take for example a family room. Be aunt recommends grouping the furniture in such a Way that a studio bed with a Side table or two is in the area opposite a couple of easy chairs and Coffee table. Attach a traverse rack to the Selling which will guide draperies across the windows and then curve away from the Wall so As to extend across the room about three feet from the studio bed. Select a luxurious drapery fabric which also can be used As an accent Wall covering. Apply the fabric to the Wall behind the studio sofa and hang draperies that can be drawn to close off what has now become a sleeping area. Because the drapery fabric matches that of the Wall behind it the sleeping Alcove can be closed or opened without changing the visual effect of the room. Be aunt says draperies also can be used to create a formal dining room in Homes where this would normally be done by building an Extension. They Are used to separate the dining area basically within the Kitchen from the food preparation area. The trick to making this effective is to line the draperies which should match decor of the living room or other nearest room with a fabric which matches the Kitchen curtains or complements the Kitchen wallpaper. With the drapes drawn the dining Side becomes Esther locally a part of the formal area without introducing a clashing pattern to the Kitchen itself. While a finished basement generally isl a major undertaking there Are effective ways to utilize a dry basement. A sturdy fabric should be quilted so that it can be used As a Wall covering. Cover Concrete Walls with flooring paper. Place horizontal furring strips along the Wall at Bottom top and half Way up. Stretch fabric across strips. The same fabric can be wrapped around columns. The Selling should be finished with acoustic tile and Felt paper under Nylon carpeting will serve satisfactorily to hide a Concrete floor. I i t k a a we v a. A a % i it 1 jct for information Call.
