Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 30, 1964, Mason City, Iowa Warning on U S economy Unemployment seen on rise By JOSEPH R SLEVIN New York HeralcJTribune News Service WASHINGTON President Johnson is complaining that unemployment is still far too high but a trio of crack gov ernment economists warns that things are going to get worse before they get better The three federal peered into 1965 and predicted that unemployment will in crease It will be a good and pros perous year but not good enough Commerce Depart ment forecaster Louis J Para diso declared The unemployment rate will creep up Labor Department specialist Mrs Aryness Joy Wickens said Activity will rise more slow ly next year than in 1964 Agri culture Department analyst Rex F Daly predicted Paradiso explains that unem ployment will go up because an anticipated 1965 national produc tion increase will fall far short of providing enough jobs for the growing American labor force The ace CommerceDepart ment forecaster said about 14 million more people will be seeking new jobs next year as the World War II baby crop surges into the labor market But he predicted that real production will increase only 3 per smallest rise for any year since 1961 Real out put is climbing 45 per cent this year Mrs Wickens endorsed Para dises appraisal She stressed that the 14 million of new 1965 jobseekers will be 150000 more people than the 125 million who are entering the job market in 1964 The government forecasters did not mention Johnson but they made it clear that he must decide whether the prospective unemployment rise is to be halted Paradiso said that private spending cannot make the econ omy grow fast enough to pro vide for all of the extra 14 million people who will want to work next year He predicted that consumers businessmen and local governments will spend more but not enough more to provide the needed thrust The Commerce Department expert declared that the pace of the upturn will weaken and unemployment will rise unless there is government action such as the excise cut that John son has promised to recommend next year Will an excise cut take hold in time to prevent an unemploy ment increase Neither Paradiso nor Mrs Wickens thinks that is likely They agreed that it will be late 1965 or early 1966 before an excise cut can begin to stimu late buying demands Iowa holiday death toll

his wife and a nurse Sharing the atom trigger By GEOFFREY GOULD WASHINGTON AP A new set of initials MLF is kick ing up a controversy in the Norm Atlantic Treaty Organiza tion MLF stands for multilateral force It is a new concept in the handling of nuclear weapons developed and pushed by the United States Essentially it is a way of permitting the United States allies partial participa tion in thespontrol of the nuclear deterrent To help understand what the fight is al abouthere are some basic questions and answers about MLfr Q What is MLF A It is a proposal for a sepa rate force of surface ships such as freighters to be equipped with Polaris missiles with nu clear tips The crews would be an international mixture from the participating nations There would be 25 ships A destroyer the USS Ricketts has been manned by a mixed crew re cently to demonstrate how tins can be done Q Who would control them A There would be an MLF commander separate from the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza tion command which would re tain its own forces But in time of war MLF would be an arm of NATO Control of the weap ons would be multinational rather than in the hands of any one country The United States alone could not decide to use them Neither could any other one country Inside The Globe Editorials 4 Society news 1011 Sports news 13H Bowling news 15 Latest markets 16 Mason City news 1607 Comics Clear Lake news 19 North Iowa news 20 Q Why was this idea devel eped A Many of the Allies have long wanted greater participa tion in the nuclear deterrent that is supposed to keep the Communists in check The Unit ed States has always been against proliferation or spread to many countries of nuclear weapons US policymakers also figure that a major country like Germany if it fails to get a share in atomic control will build an independent nuclear force of its own The MLF was designed to satisfy both require ments nonproliferation and sharing by the Allies Q Doesnt this amount to pro liferation anyway A American officials from Secretary of State Dean Rusk on down insist that it is not pro liferation and in fact is actually positive step against the spread of nuclear weapons Critics say the it would put more fingers on the nuclear trigger Q Who wants MLF A The United States and West Germany primarily Others taking part in talks include Ita ly Greece Turkey the Nether lands and Great Britain Q Who is against it A France which has devel oped its own nuclear weapons and wants less European de pendence on the United States is strongly against it Britains new Labor government which wants to give up Englands past atomic role is cold to it Q Why not use submarines like the American Polaris subs A Too expensive Part of the MLF idea is to form a nuclear club for our allies with dues low enough for them to pay Q How would MLF be fi nanced A That is still to be worked out Presumably all participants would contribute with the Unit ed States and West Germany probably bearing a larger share RESCUE MISSION A BarboursvilleT volunteer firemanplunges his head into a manhole after hearing cries from a storm sewer The object of the rescue turned out to be a bird which sped off without even a chirp of thanks Hughes may push cut in speed limit DBS MOINES tion to lower speed limits on some Iowa highways probably will be requested of the 1965 legislature by Gov Harold Hughes I think I undoubtedly will push lower speed limits Hughes told a news conference Monday I realize this is very controversial because if there is one thing people dont like it is having some one tell them how fast they can drive Hughes said the record death toll in Iowa this year is a tre mendous tragedy which also is plaguing the nation He said his speed limit pro A tired group of North lowans returns to home By CHARLES W WALK North Iowa News Director CHICAGO The 16th annual Mason CityNorth Iowa Fair Youth Award Trip is history but like any selfrespecting teen ager would the youngsters on this years trip ssved their frost ing for last The top of the cake in this case was Sundays trip to OHare International Airport the worlds largest commercial airdrome obviously bonetired from two days and nights of touring the windy city most of the 250plus youths and their leaders on this years trip agreed the Sunday afternoon tour of the airport ILe high light of the event Besides the obvious attrac tions of the huge airport many of the North lowans said they were particularly pleased about the tour because it gave them a chance to catch 40 winks on the 45minute bus ride to and from the field Sleep something I dont think Ill ever enough of a sain one leader remarked But aside from the lack of sleep a few blisters and some head colds the North lowans ap peared none the worse for the wear as they left for home about LI pm Sunday on their special train Veterans of this trip agreed that this was one of the quietest groups of youngsters in the 16 year history of the event Of ficials at the PickCongress Hotel trip headquarters con curred and paid the top com pliment by inviting the North lowans back again next year The quietest time of all came about pm Sunday after the group returned from the OHare tour There wasnt even much conversation The youngsters sat around on their suitcases in the hotel lobby while the leaders checked to YOUTH TRIP Continued 2 posals probably would be simi lar to those he expressed during the recent political campaign but said he planned to meet with state Safety Commissioner William Sueppel to iron out final details During the campaign Hughes said he favored reducing maxi mum speeds on gravel roads to 50 miles per hour day and night and lowering limits on paved secondary roads to 60 miles an hour during the day and 50 miles at night He also recommended reduc tion of daytime speeds on pri mary highways to 60 or 65 miles an hour He said the speed limit of 75 miles an hour during the day on interstate highways was realistic for cars but was too high for trucks He recommended that trucks be limited to speeds of 60 miles an hour day and night Present maximum speed lim its on paved secondary roads are 70 miles during the day and 60at night The limits on gravel roads are 60 day and 50 night and primary highways have limits of 70 and 60 Hughes said his proposals for highway safety also will call for an increase in the Highway Patrol staff and the improve ment of traffic courts Wo will do everything we can within reason he said He indicated he had mixed emotions about adoption of a law requiring new can be equipped with seat belts The seat belt law is a good law but unless you can get people to fasten the belts they are just so much paraphernal ia he said But perhaps If seat belts were in cars more people would
