City Has Stake In Small Town, Speaker Claims Bloomington has a big stake in what happens to the small Central Central Illinois town, according to H. C. Tate who addressed the Kiwanis club Monday noon on "Postwar Planning for Small Communities." "In the first place," he said, "between "between 65 and 70 percent of the retail business of Bloomington 's general stores comes from outside outside Bloomington - Normal. Each family in this area spends nearly $350 a year in Bloomington. "In the second place you should have an interest from the standpoint standpoint of government. If democracy democracy ever fails in this country, it will fail in the small, local unit. McLean county has around 500 or more local governments. You as citizens have a big stake in the streamlining and modernizing of these units if we are not to enter a managed economy in peace as well as in war." The speaker said the small town faces problems of employment, social services, retail outlets and recreational facilities which must be met if they are to survive. He pointed out that Illinois alone has almost 1.000 incorporated communities communities with less than 2,500 population population as compared with 150 between between 2,500 and 10,000 and only about 60 with more than 10,000. "The small town problem is a problem affecting almost a third of the population directly and the rest of us indirectly," he said. H NKRl. NOTIC r.. Funeral services for Ir.
