L Blytheville Citizens Support Idea Offered by Texas Visitor That Blylhcvllle should have street signs Is not only, the opinion of one Texan but of Blythevillc citizens,< Its -visitors uiid ]>eople who formerly lived here and now make their home in other cities. A recent story in the Courier News about a Texan who came here on business and foamd himself lost because there were no signs lias evoked much comment from residents. One citizen remarked "That j Texan felt the same way as one of my relatives who planned to surprise me with a ! visit on a trip through here. He knew the name and number of the street, but when he learned that there were no signs, resorttd to asking .passers-by. The trouble Is, most people don't know where any but their own street nnd the most prominent ones in the . business section are, so he finally gfive up the idea of surprising me and telephoned to ask for specific directions." Another resident said, "I didn't even know they had names— use familiar landmarks to locate places. You know, this friend lives oil ttie street that runs south by that drug story, tic," A newcomer added, "I had worked here two months, before I learned the nume of the .street wlier* Hie office was located. Hud a lime finding out, too." A former Blytheville resident, who now is In Chicago but maintains that Blylhevllle Is her permanent home, wrote the Courier News that "the Texan has his criticism. "Do you'suppose," she asked, ".some of the streets could be named for Southern heroes?" Chicago, .she writes, uses names for streets and one group of streets "offers a lesson in American history. They, run In tills order: Washington, Madison. Monroe, Adams, Jackson, etc." She adds that almost every Northern city has a Grant Boulevard or street named for some other Northern hero.
