MONDAY, DUCEAIHER 11, 104-1 Forecasts Boom In Sale of Cars Arkansas Dealers To Profit From Postwar Demands of Public DETnqiT, Dec. ll — Automobile retailers in the stiite of Arkansas K'ill sinnsli all previous records by selling approximately '38,670 new cars In HID first year of unrestricted production after the war, 02 per , fcfiit more than were sold in the l|»'|ik year of 1341. That prediction was made here loday by Joseph w. Prazcr, chairman of Graham-Paige Motors, who said his figures for this slnfc are computed on the oasis of nationwide estimates developed bv his organization. "Our study shows that during the year of automobile production the state's new ciu market will total approximately $'16/!08,800." lie said, "and the toial volume for the four years should exceed ... 'I'hc auto executive estimated Uiat 6.000,000 passenger cars will be sold iti Hie nation during (he first 12 months of unlimited output mid lliat dealers will enjoy a "scries of iFii-billlon-clallar years" inlhc postwar period. During the first year, he said, "aggressive selling of automobiles a»ti trucks will create n national advertising expenditure of approximately $160.000,000— n 30 per cent increase over the record-breaking outlay of 1041. Of this amount, lie estimated that 50 per cent or $BO, 000,000 will be allocated to newspapers. Prazer forecast "hot and heavy" competition among dealers in Hie stale, "particularly In the second year of full production when new companies with unique models will undoubtedly enter the field." He cited his company as "at least one concern \vhk-h will depart from conventional design and build a fc postwar automobile ulilizinc p)as>tics, ilght-mclals mid oilier recent wartime developments. "In addition, businesses in Arkansas indirectly associated with the automobile should experience a boot" in the postwar years when the nation embarks upon an era of touring unprecedented in tlie iia- lion's history." For example, Frnzor predicted that the slate's tourist and resort businesses will experience an all-time high. HLYT11RV1LL1.; COURIER NRWS IOOKIM MEM Temperatures Atlanta . ... Augusta .

Progressively they seek to widen Iheir dominion as .strength permits. They take* resources by violence so they can hold what au- Ihorlly they may have obtained without force. The rapid rise of Adolpli and Benllo from obscure polltlciu bosses to dictatorship Illustrates how totalitarianism grows Tyrants rise to power by dominating other men. At first "the process Is peaceful. Always there Is a preliminary period of building up Influence without the use of strong- arm tactics. Those are Ihe days when, with reasonable foresight violence can be forestalled. World peace, when It comes, could be preserved by keeping too much power out of the hands of too few men; simple but hard to do. We Buihl Wrony Thirst for power Is not confined lo the eastern hemisphere; people in America have it. All of us know such men personally. The United Stale.s' tower of centralized government built in late years is follow- in« a well known but dangerous pattern. I do not charge that the structure was begun with a fixed dictatorship but we arc erecting what dictators use (or climbing lo absolute monarchy. Not lo care who else gel,s hurt, so long as "Big I" gets more and more power, is Ihe hall-mark of the House of Tyrany. Somebody wants to boss (he public schools and hatches a plan to put al! teachers on one pay-roll for all or a pnrt of their incomes, ihus to grab thsir alleglcnce. It would niln tlie schools. Parents would have no voice in their children's education one-man rule. , Bis Medicine Man Somebody else covets a private domain of doctors aiid hospitals, and promptly paints a pretty picture of so-called socialized medicine. It would reslrict the surgeon's knife lo the'precision of a drill-press. Picture a medical association affiliated with the international union of barbers and bar- iteifders; daily pay-scale, 40-liour (week, time-and-a-half on Sundays and Debbs' birthday. Doctors are men and those with ambition would surely quit the profession. Theorists, ^paper-work doctors and nurses with hook-worm would remain for [he short hours and sure pay. The medical profession would be a joke; a grim joke. Without ambition, without zeal for service to humanity, there cony be no clinics (ike Mayo and • Johns Hopkins, of which we will need so many, and soon.

This leads to a few doubts .us to ability of achieving this magnilicent goal of full ejiiploymcnl, and even to qiies- Uoning desirability ol having nearly half the population at work In tlie peacetime world.
