Acceding to Senator Beall of Maryland, Uncle Sam runs nearly 19,000 commercial and industrial businesses  are in direct competion with prixate concerns. The list .has an almost bewilde.ring variety--efee- roasting plants, rum disleries, printing and power plats, the manufacture of medi- cal and dental equipment, plastic-laminating anal so <m,.

So do the general taxpay- ers, for government businesses, in addition to being tax free, commonly operate at a loss. Socialism is a mighty expensive luxury. As tkhe Citizeas Public Expenditure Sur- vey puts it, "Uncle Sam's sote business is to govern and ,he has no business being in any other business." If we really want to spur he economy we'll get the government out of commercial business as swiftly as possible and let competitive taxpaying enterprise do the needed jobs. Governor Cites Economic Gains Made In Washington By Gov. Albert D. Rosellini The ec0,n'oc advance of Washingto State in 1963 was second only to that of he rec- ord year, 1962. F,ures detail- ing the state's economic gains --and losses--in 1963, are con- rained in a rept issued by the State Debarment of Com- meace and Economic Develop- merit. The publication, "Wash- ington Recap '63," was pub- lished by the departanent's Burmss arid Fonoqnic Re- search division. Department Director Robert E.

In compag 1963 wi ]962, s'ubstarti:al gains in per- sonM in!come and bank de- p,oits were recc,rded last year. Personal income totaled $7.8 billion, up $284 milliJon, nearly d,ouble tbe increase an,tleiFatofl in 1962. try increased in value of its production ,to $71.5 million up wur per cert over 1962. The increase was due maiy to increased preductn o ce- ment, sand, gravel, and zinc. Decreases were noted in clays, peat, stoe, and magnesium minerals. Losses Felt Because of a hrge cutback in the aero-ace industry ordered by the federal govern- me,hi, marm,fau,ring employ- merit fel off sharply in 1963. Aside from that industry's o,ss of 8,900 workers, the gains and losses in other .te indus- tries just bout balanced even- ly, showing only 'a slight ],ass.

N------' th ,W Washington Bar Association PRESUMPTION OF DEATH Judy's husband Sam, a re- tired navy man, disappeared from his ,home one day and was never heard of gain. Seven years ta.ter, Judy ob- tained a court decree declaring him ,legally dead. At the time of his disappearance, Sam was receiving monthly retire- ment checks from the n,avy. About a year after having am declared legally dead, Judy began proceedings claim- ing his accumulated retirement pay for the seven years after he disappeared. "What does she think she is trying o do," said the navy. "First, she has him declared dead to get his insur;,ncc, and now she wants his declared alive to get his reireme.n,t pay. She must ,be kidding." "The court said t,het my husband is presumed dead after seven years," said Judy. "But tttat doesn't mean he is presumed to have died he first day he disappeared. He could have lived until the end of the seven year period, and I am entitled to his retirement checks for those seven years." Is Judy correct? Is her hus- band presumed to be alive during his seven years of un- explained absence? Yes, said the court. The lay, presumes that a person shovn to be alive at a given ime re- main alive until his aeutal' death is proved, or until a dif-I ferent presumption arises. A different wesumpti,on, namely that he is dead, does arise but only after seven years o unexpl,ned absence. Spending as measured by bank debts increased a sacis- tying nine per een,t; and al- though the department store sales i, ndex fell six points, i't remained five points above he 1961 le,vel. Unemployment Up But this hri'h picture was partially o.versh[a,doved by the un empl,o.anent rates. The 1963 rate of unempl,oy- ment, 5.9 per cent ,was .5 per- cen,age points higher than 1962, bat sill b.loar the 1961 rate .of 6.8 and the 1960 rate of 6.4 per contr. TranMated in'to numbers, un.employment in- creased 6,600 ls,t year to a to- tal of 67,000 unempl'oyed. Cutbacks in the acre-space industry o,rdered by the fed- eral government, the let-down fol:l0ving the 1962 World's Fair, and a'n indifferent tour- is,t ye,ar, were the principal f.actors in the une:mploymen.t picture..

Lumber output increased about one per cenlt over 1962 A strong resurgence of Doug- las FiT production i,n the fourth quarter and a good showing by the p,ine predueing regi'an of Ea,st,ern Washington combined to lift 1963 produc- tion over 1962 levels. Planned capital investmen in land, buildings, 'and equip- ment, a:s announced by indus- trial and business firms last year ttaled $292.4 millon. Some of this may be tentative, dependi,ng upon ther factors, and same more may not ccur for several years. The outlook for 1964 is go,d. The cut in federal taxes ce,'dd free mill:ions of dollars of inve.tmevt capital and will in.crca..e the p'rehasing pozer of state waffe earners by many millions of'dollars. Farm Drep Forecast VChile farm income may drop slightly, it is quite likely the touris:t irdu.stry wil'l pick up this sl.aek. The celebration of the state's 75th anniversary of statehood is expected to push revenaes well past the $253' million recorded last year. In 1963, ourism sub- fared from the past-Nair let- down and unseason,a,ble weath- er. Another factor poin,ting up quesLiarm facing farmers to- day. And, I daresay, probably n.o oe could provide he ex- act answer. However, there is a good working tool which can be used by farmers to estimate the needed amount of nitro- gen fertilizer. This is .the co,m- bined soil moisture and nitro- gen aborato,ry test. At the present it is the most practical and aceurate method used to- day to c'aicuh, te needed nitro- gen requirements of given soils and crops. [t consists of aking one fo0l auger samples of a soil to a depth of six feet for a. prac- tical purposes this is the roo one for grain crops of this ,area. Through a process of oven drying the moisture pres- ent can be determined. By use of a few addiion'al steps the nitrogen ,available in e*aCh f.oo,t depth of soil can also be de- termined. Research hos revealed ap- a good economic year in 1964 is the job corps program which has as its mission he accelera- tion of building ,and buying in the state. Successful imple- mentation o,f this program will also set up the schedules o public works programs fur- ther en,chancing the economy. The 1,ong-range outlook is good too. With the exception of the manufacturing employ- merit, Washington's mimmmn predicted gv r a t e s .through 1976 are grear than the actual rates reported for 1948-62.
