We may ,have seen the greatest portion of the rise in manufacturing em- p'Lment. However, em]vloy- ment in government payros at all levels, and in services, should continue to scre siz- able gains. Job Picture Told I forecast no radical change in the j,obless picture. Let me warn readers, however, that the problem is far from solved, and in coming years we may wel,1 have to reckon with it.

The Great Society pro- gram is a plus factor for con- struetian, including urban re- newal and highways. No Building Boom Private ;home and apartment l)uiMirtg could show slight im- provement, but the real boom in residen;tial building will nt register significantly in 1966: Hence, I foveca that real estate cartditions Will remain selective. Well-located sites for homes and industrial and commercial complexes will do well, but study ,of local con- dition,s is imperative. I predict a further increase in farm lnd values in 1966.

This places  premium on well,loon.t- ed land in the impoant and larger agricultural regi, ons.

Stock Market My Suffer Trees do nt grow to the skies; neither does the stock market rise unendingly.
