wer looked on as something specia but soon they may become a common as pebbles on a beach It could happen quickly and disastrously if there is an other inflationary upsurge wages and prices but it will hap pen before long even if price are steady average nonfarm familj now gets belter than year and the Commerce Depart ment believes that the average will hit by 1970 just shj of the magic figure Let remember that these are fam ily figures including the pay check of the husband and per haps a working wife or children in ITS ANOTHER chapter in tht story of an increasingly pros perous country The living standards of the American leo pie have risen in all but three years since World War II The exceptions were the recession years of 1949 1954 and 1958 The average increase in liv ing standards has amounted to 1 per cent a year even if the three poor years are included The improvement since the pre depression year of 1929 has av eraged 1V4 per cent a year The Commerce Departments 1970 estimates raise visions of comfort plenty for the aver family and of fabulous mar kets for the average industry The income1 rise over the next 10 years is to be coupled with a sharp growth in population and that means hot only that the av erage family will be able to buy more but that many more fam ilies will be doing the buying THI COMMERCE Depart ment says that non farm families pocketed bil lion of income in 1956 that families will receive billion in 1960 and that 000 families will take in bil lion in 1970 All of the departments esti mates have been made in 1958 prices The totals will be larg er if prices are higher and they will be smaller if the unlikely event that prices go down The average family farm and nonfarm alike collected last year and could say that its income had climbed 100 from the that it ob tained in 1947 The trouble is that prices went up too and the real buying power of the fam ilys earnings went up only One question the experts can not answer is Which nonfarm families will be getting the high er incomes that will boost the average family income to by 1970 RICH AND POOR alike have been growing wealthier since 1929 But where the poorer peo SWEET

of the national income from 1929 to 1947 that may not have been the case since Instead the rel ilive shares of the rich and the poor have remained unchanged over the past 11 years Back in 1929 paid 40 per cent of the population re ceived 13 per cent of the income The total rose to about 6 per cent in 1947 and its been hover ing there since The experts are puzzled by the apparent failure of the poor t h e m of the more prosperous brackets since World War II and suspect that at least part of the explanation may lie in statistical quirks But they dont know for sure Its possible that the redistribu tion of income that began dur ing the New Deal may have ended at least temporarily in the mid1940s er groups to improve selves at the expense SAME IOWA IAVETT DEPARTMENT FIGURES ItM itilk hi File
