be avoided and that activity can be kept rising I dont have the feeling that there are any unmanageable problem But Heller quickly made it plain he is confident that infla tion can be avoided and that ac tivity can be kept rising I dont have the feeling that there are any unmanageable prob lems he said The lanky economics profes sor was one of President Kenne dys original New Frontiersmen but he became a close adviser of President Johnson after Ken nedy was slain Heller predicted that the com ing inflation test will be the most severe since the current business upturn began in 1961 However he is counting on this countrys builtin defenses to keep inflation in check He stressed that most mate rials and manpower are in good supply that plant capacity is in creasing that businessmen have to meet strenuous competition from American and foreign firms Heller acknowledged that big automobile wage settlements can generate some costpush inflationary pressures There is a danger that the 1965 steel settlement will be too large but you dont have a whole row of dominoes in other industries Heller emphasized He said that steeper wage costs are not likely to push up prices if industry continues to post large productivity gains and if output volume continues to grow rapidly enough to boost business profits I do not want to be misun derstood but it will not be too bad then if the profit per unit is down Heller said When he looks ahead to the second half of 1965 Heller agrees with an overwhemling majority of government business economists who The newspaper that makes all North

changed as nuns worked in factory By PHIL BROWN EAST LANSING Mich AP Some habits had to be changed in more ways than one when two Michigan nuns went to work in a factory For instance The first day we were there something went wrong on a job and one of the men let loose with a loud and candid comment You could al most hear an elbow hitting his ribs said Sister Jean Law rence of the East Lansing area She and Sister Janina of De troit also told in an interview Wednesday how they had to modify the large sleeves on the habits they wore and take some extra material out of the skirls for safety and convenience When we arrived at the plant to start work it was just like dropping a bomb Sister Jean Lawrence recalled Their goingto the Nobis Dec orating Co plant in North Can ton Ohio this summer was the idea of Mother Genevieve su perior at the Dominican moth erhouse in Adrian The company makes colored glass windows Mother Gene vieve asked company owner Rudy Nobis if she could send two nuns to work as appren tices Sure any time Nobis laughed They had not really expected us said Sister Jean Lawrence But they put us to work The two nuns both school teachers began putting together four windows two 18by8fcet and two 15by5 feet for the new Maria Hall for sick and aged nuns at Adrian The men were a little upset by having women invade their private domain especially nuns Sister Jean Lawrence said But after a while they seemed to get used to us When ever one of them would have a minor injury we usually got the job of patching it up since we were the only women in the shop The two were chosen because of their art studies at Sienna Heights College at Adrian to ward a masters degree The factory work earned them de gree credits Sister Janina said the nuns did all their own work except they showed us what to do once and lifted the windows for us She estimated the nuns fitted some 1900 small pieces of reel yellow blue green and other colored glass to fit the pattern for the window designed by Sis ter Joannes arl director ot Sienna Heights Studio Angelica When they left the factory their fellow workers gave them a going away gift of a box of candy Photofax and are predicting that business activity will slow down But Heller finds a bright side for it will give the administra tion a chance to nail down the profound policy change that came with President Kennedys historic June 1962 acceptance of a Heller recommendation that he sponsor a multibilliondollar tax cut to spur the sluggish economy It will be our first chance to apply the newly learned les sons Heller said It will give us an opportunity to consolidate the gains of the last four years Much of the economys cur rent strength is due to the billion tax cut that finally be came law at the end of
