Associated Press and United International Full Leas Wire MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 4 1961 Copy TM Paper ConiMi ef roar No 30t President and Gromyko slate Berlin parley Recovery boom no Consumers are wary By WILLIAM B DICKINSON JR GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau all the in dicators which measure the na tions economic wellbeing the one most meaningful to the aver age citizen is the governments monthly report on employment and unemployment It has proven difficult to con vince the public that the business boom so freely predicted for 1961 62 really is under way while unj employment hovers around the 7J per cent level Recovery yes Boom no Perhaps this is one reason the consumer so far has resisted any temptation to go on a buying splurge He wants to be sure the good times are real and not a Madison Avenue slogan to part him from his savings Reassur ance on this score may be coming in the next few months Labor Department economists have reported that unemployment in September fell from the 45 million August figure to 41 mil lion even though the economy had no more than seasonal im provement Unemployment by Oc tober should drop below 4 mil lion if seasonal patterns prevail Not since October 1960 have there been fewer than 4 million jobless workers Actually the October job pick up could be much better than seasonal if hiring in the automo bile and steel industries fills pres ent expectations Then too thou sands of teenagers who wanted to work and were officially count ed among the jobless during sum mer months were back in school Not to be ignored are the em ployment opportunities opened up by the call to arms of 150000 re servists and the steppedup draft of 23yearolds The most worrisome aspect the unemployment problem is the number of married ie family men without jobs They num bered 15 million in midAugust but only twofifths of these had been out of work for 15 weeks or longer A good proportion of these men live in socalled de pressed areas where joblessness is chronic Moreover it is not unusual for employment to con tinue high for a number of months after a recovery is under way because industry prefers to length en the workweek before recalling laidoff workers or hiring new ones Although the job outlook for the next several months appears bright the longterm prospects are more obscure Treasury Sec retary C Douglas Dillon hope fully predicts that if the economy grows as fast as he expects un employment should fall to 6 per cent or less by Christmas and possibly to 5 per cent by the mid dle of 1962 By September 1962 Dillon be lieves unemployment could be gradually approaching 45 per cent on its way to the 4 per cent level presently considered to be reasonably full employment But Paul Samuelson economics pro fessor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an adviser to the President said that the job less figure would still be hover ing around 5 per cent as late as March 1963 The seasonallyad justed joblessness rate for August 1961 was 69 per cent Most of the optimism about a future rise in employment is tied to prospects for a sharp rise in the gross national product the nations total output of goods and services The third quarter GNP ran at a billion annual rate well above the record second quarter rate of billion AP PBotofax OXYGEN FOR RONNIE Rescue workers give oxygen to Ronnie Reese 15
