WASHINGTON UP1) Soviet
Premier Nikita Khrushchev and
Vice President Richard M. Nixon
are continuing in this country the
bristling battle of words they
started in the famous Moscow
"Kitchen" debate. .
- Khrushchev said Wednesday he
would "swear on the Bible" that
Nixon was wrong when the vice
president stated in New York that
Russia's successful moon hit was
preceded by three failures.
The Soviet leader challenged
Nixon to take a similar oath on
a Bible if the vice president
thought his account of the failures
Nixon hud no comment on 1
Khrushchev's challenge. Report
ers questioned him when he left
the Russian premier's dinner for
President Eisenhowor at the So
viet embassy Wednesday night.
Asked if he stuck by his state
ment of the failures, Nixon
grinned broadly, shook his head,
and replied, "no comment."
Khrushchev, apparently still
smarting from Nixon's barbed re
marks during their spirited de
bate in the kitchen of the model
home at the U. S. exhibit in Mos
cow, also said the vice president
had a very wrong conception" ot
the Russian people "and myself."
The Soviet premier told report
ers at a reccpt;on before his
speech at the Nutional Press

Beware Of Declining Stocks
When Ladies' Skirts Lengthen
By ELMER C. WALZER
UPI Staff Writer
NEW YORK (ITU The first
issue of the magazine Business
Week published on Sept. 7. 1929
proves to Wall Street that when
ladies skirts are lengthened
you'd better look out for bad
business and declining stocks.
Business Week in celebration
of its 30th birthday has pub
lished an exact replica of its
first edition and one of the fea
ture dispatches Is headlined
"skirts come down, tradp picks
The trade pickup was expected
to come from the fact that to
make skirts five inches longer
would take 250 million more
yards of goods a year. Doubtless
that didn't pan out in the big de
pression that came soon after
that headline was written.
If you're thinking about this
year's styles, the ladies assure
this department skirts are going
to be short. That's a harbinger
of favorable business.
Evidently this discovery of
short skirts equaling prosperity;
long ones indicating a recession
or depression wasn't tried and
proved in 1929.
Elliott V. Bell, editor and pub
lisher of Business Week, in a
foreword In the anniversary rep
lica edition, says:
"If the publishers of Business
Week could have foreseen, in
1929, the events lying just ahead
they might well have lacked the
courage to embark on such an
uphill venture. Fortunately they
had no such fatal foresight.
"The new publication, a little
flip and perhaps naive at first,
soon found itself fighting to sur
vive in a world of economic chaos.
"In the years that followed
there was forged, I believe, an
organization a staff, a tradition,
an approach to the reporting and
analysis of news for the business
manfar better than would have
existed without the chastening of
the great depression."
If the editors didn't know what
kind of depression was ahead,
they did know that all wasn't
well even though the stock mar
ket had just set new record
highs. On the first page of the
issue, they said:
"Security speculation has eaten
nearly all its credit cake. Stock
prices are generally out of line
with safe earnings expectations,
and the ma ket is now almost
wholly 'psychological' irregular,
unsteady and properly apprehen
sive of the inevitable adjustment
that draws near."
In its first issue, Business Week
in 1929 noted that the stock mar
ket started strong after its triple
i Labor Day) holiday. Call money
then hovered around 9 per cent.
Stock exchange member borrow
ing rose to $7,881,619,000, a rise
for August of $407 million.
Secretary Mellon cut the inter
est rate on short-term U.S. gov
ernments from 54 per cent to
4' per cent.
Business men back in Septem
ber, 1929. didn't think the end of
the world had come. The first
issue of Business Week said under
the headline, "Five thousand six
hundred business men think:
"The average volume of gen
eral business in the country as
a whole during September, Octo
ber, and November will be about
6 per cent better than at the
close of August and 5 per cent
over the same period last year."
And later in the item, the
magazine concluded: "continued
high money rates particularly
for mortgage money and rural
credit are retarding business.
"The stump in building con
struction, excessive instalment
buying especially of luxuries and
automobiles and increasingly
keen competition in the retail field
because of chain store develop
ment are things to worry about."
In an editorial entitled, "Why
the Business Week?", the editors
"You will find the Business
Week always has a point of
view, and usually a strong opin
ion. Both of which it does not
hesitate to express.
"You may find a little humor
somewhere, if you look sharp.
"And all the way through, we
hope, you will discover it is pos
sible to write sanely and intel
ligently of business without being
pompous or ponderous. '
