THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1049 BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.)' COURJEK NKWS PAGE ?nhB lerchanfs Hold imaller Stocks 'Very Conservative' Inventory Policies Cause Loan Drop . WASHINGTON, March 31—(ffl— Iprchants, taking a cue from their lustomers, are going light on buy- Tig. "Very conservative inventory and buying policies" were cited by government officials today as the chief lause of a drop in business loans lince Christmas. This drop has putdone anything of the sort In pre- 'ious post-war years. These loans are used hi large |>art lo finance purchases of stocks ft goods. Officials said merchants liot only have cut back buying for Inventory—lest they get caught In l< nhase of declining prices—bu |ilso l)nve been paying off old loans is fast as possible." The business loans drop, as mea- hurcd in Federal Reserve Board re Jiiorts from member banks In the •nations leading cities, has run un •broken for the last ten weeks. I parried the volume of business loan •down $670,000,000 from the Decem |ber 22 peak. This drop of more than four pe •cent in three months is clue to lac lof demand rather than to newl •tightened bank lending policies, of Ificials said. They added that report • reaching here show no sign of un • usual calling-in of loans by th [banking system. Called "Healthy" Sign ying caution by merchants \va I rated a "healthy" Ltgn. The officia I position Is that the country woul I be better off if such buslnessme I guard against building up such bi I inventories. Such heavy stocks o I goods might later have to be dump led in forced selling .something thn I has accentuated trouble in pai | "boom ond bust" cycles, Nevertheless, the conservative bui linn policies clearly were a link i 1 the chain leading to factory lai | offs. Officials said retailers in generi I put the brakes on inventory built I ing about the middle of 1048. Aft Christmas sales proved a .sharp di. appointment and when subsquei sales lagged, they began sellit stocks of goods without fully [ placing them. Government data showed retail I stock.? of goods were $295,000.000 | lower at the end of January than at the end of December.

Sometimes they don't even know liey're In the never-ending race. Ml Ihcy know Is that tliey always vtuit more than they have, and lolhing they get siilisfles Ilieni for one. But any couple can stay oul of the race if they want to, by sticking by few simple but sound rules. One. Don't choose your friends from a group tlint is financially above you. Trying to "keep up" with people in a higher Income bracket is an unnecessary strain no manied couple lias lo suffer. Two. Don't let others set your pace for you or decide what things you must have In order to be happy. A great many women make themselves miserable and keep their husbands' noses to the grindstone for years simply because they have to have whal somebody else wants. Three. Enjoy life ns it Is untl (lie things you have, Instead of thinking constantly of what you want to have and what you want to do. Pour. Build for permanence as you go along. "Tilts will do until we cnn gel somelhing better" is philosophy that doesn't make for contentment. Be Yourself, Foremost Five. Don't be afraid to be yourself, lo like what you like and to put first the things that are really Im- portant to you. Some women can't make a move without lUiding oul If all their frlcmfs approve of (lie slep they are about to take. Six. Don't envy other people because of what they have and what Ihey are able to do. Instead put youv mind to figuring out what you •an have and whiit you can do, and enjoy tlie tilings lhat are possible to you. Seven. If you aren't happy, don't kid yourself that it Is because you don't have this or don'l have Hint. Some women are always one Hem behind what It would take lo umke them happy. Eight. Rcnlt/.e lhat a man has enough competition in his lite just In making his way in the business world, Don'l make him compete socially, loo. Servants Moving HAMBURG. Germany.

Polish Army Officers Tofr? to Be Marxists [ (^WARSAW, Poland — W) — Polish 1/my officers have been told they must be devout believers in Marxist-Leninist principles. Furthermore, they have been ordered to use all "propaganda devices" to sell that doctrine to all men under their command. Col. Leon Grosfeld, writing in the Polish army newspaper "Polska Zbrojna", said: "Our officers must come to realize that to work on the broadening of his mental horizon, to definitely shape his outlook upon life, that U> study Marxism-Leninism Is not something remote from the army and having no connection with it. "He must realize that the better he has mastered Marxism-Leninism, the more rapid will be his progress along the path of military excellence, the better will he perform his professional duties, the better will he serve his country." If Alaska becomes the 49th state in the union, it will also be the largest.
