Wednesday night to give his opinion on whether r delegation scheduled to leave for Moscow Thursday to discuss the cultural agreement should postpone the trip Kohlers reply reached the State Department slightly more than an hour before Kennedy was due to meet newsmen The ambassador officials said ad vised that the negotiations should be canceled at least un til the Soviets give a satisfac tory reply

industry is riding high at the moment but keeping a wary eye on signs of a slowdown in con struction and the odds on mak ing recentsteel price increases Steel output is back to the level of midJuly before the summer slump really started largely as an aftermath to a strikehedging inventory buildup earlier in the year t i T 3 pa plans indica icate u try and even more so is deter mination costs from using obsolete equipment S1 And profits of stee companies have bounded back nicely from the 1962 slump t Most of this years boosts in prices covering some twp thirds of total have held stoutly enough so far Steel mills report their customers have accepted them as inevita ble in times of rising production and increased labor costs And the government hasnt reacted as it did a year ago when a steel price increase was quickly rescinded after adminis tration protests Summoning of steel company records by a grand jury recently is now gen erally accepted as an investiga tion of antitrust law compliance rather than as a protest against price boosts v But the strength of the recent increases depends om continued high demand by steel users auto makers construction con durable goods The auto makers are very busy and the market there seems assured for the immedi ate future Consumer durable goods also have been selling well and consumers still seem in a buying mood Construction also has pushing until just re cently Some steel executives feel that the trend there may determine their own prospects Census Bureaus figures show construction spending down a little in October from Septem ber and August But it is still running at an annual rate of around billion Steelmen hope it stays that way But such construction ma terials as concrete glass alu minum and plastics still hold a much larger share of the mar ket steel once dominated than steel officials like And that puts a cautious damper on some of the enthusi asm that recent steel profit gains generated CHEESE LOVERS MOSCOW
