Toy Makers Foresee Record
Christmas Sales But Dollar
Volume May Disclose Slump
By SAM DAWSON
NEW YORK UP) Santa Claus Is set to put a $300 million
bite on dad lor toys this Christmas. There are a record number
of children to unwrap the presents, and a record number ot fathers
to buy the toys and help them wear out.
The shops will offer more low
er-priced toys, but plenty of lux
ury priced ones, too. American
toy manufacturers think they'll
top last year's unit sales vol
ume, but that slightly lowered
prices may keep the dollar sales
volume down to last year's $300
million. Santa Claus may be pe
nalized a few yards in commu-
hit by strikes or lay-offs. But for
the country as a whole, there
should be as many, or more, fond
fiarents, uncles and aunts, try
ng out the toys on store count
ers, and buying.
They'll have a wide choice. Al
most every problem currently
agitating parents Is echoed In the
nities where incomes have been designs for new playthings. For

PRIZE POSTER Herbert Matter, New York photographer, looks
at his poster, which won him $1000 in a New York contest spon
sored by the Museum of Modern Art and the National Foundation
for Infantile Paralysis. The poster, which won first prize, is a
photo-montage. Matter used his own son, who recovered from
polio, as one of the models.
instance, department store toy
counters now set up for the sales
rush, are showing more toys pre
sumably powered by atomic en
ergy and Jet propulsion.
Or, if father has been worried
about the housing slutatlon, may
be he'll buy one of the new pre
fabricated toy houses.
If he's all steamed up about
the tug-of-war between coal and
oil, with its overtones of strikes
and prices, and the labor dis-
?utes involved in changing over
rom steam locomotives to die
sels perhaps he'll be interested
to note that electric train sets
show more diesel-type locomo
tives this year than steam.
And among the new games is
one in which the object is to find
parking space for the family car.
Many persons no longer consider
this search funny, but the game
is said to be absorbing and serves
to let the youngster see what
lie's In for.

crop surpluses and food prices
are so to the fore in even a toy
maker's mind, Is strong in the

There's a magnetic farm, with

Of Meat Opposed
By Wool Growers
rUKlLANV, NOV. 1U. Uf)
Oregon's wool growers oppose
any compulsory grading of meat

city plan to compel gracing oi an
meats. It included, however, op

Delegates said they favored
voluntary grading such as the
federal grading plan. The grow
ers argued that "grading actually
means degrading because most of
Oregon's meat animals are mar
keted grass fat." They explained
that only 2 to 3 per cent of Ore
gon animals grade A or AA. The
other carcasses are Just as nu
tritious, they said.
On other issues, the growers
opposed a Columbia Valley ad
ministration, daylight saving
time and the Hoover report pro
posal touching on grazing land
administration. The government
of the former president's commit
tee suggested transfer of the fed
eral grazing service from the de
department of agriculture.
