Early Dividends Those of you who supported in any way the effort of the Chamber of Commerce to open the new industrial pitrk on East Highway 18 should take comfort in the activity there (and although this newspaper has been an enthusiastic supporter of the industrial park, it has brought two of our interests squarely into conflict because few developments have emphasized Uie need of county zoning as has the park). One industry last week began moving into its park plant. Another is well along on construction. The various utilities are being completed and hir- - ing by the two industries is well under way. Meanwhile, several additional industrial representatives have been to town recently to gaze upon this scene. All bodes well for the city. There also have been two notable instances of community cooperation with the new industries. Mayor Tom Little is permitting American Quality Coach to park its pre-production vehicles on the city parking: lot at Ash and First. We know of little better use for the lot, which until recently anyway was averaging only seven paid vehicles per day. Someday, doubtless, the lot will be a civic asset, but for the moment it is rather lightly utilized. Meanwhile, nearby, First National Bank was providing temporary office space for Columbia Carbon, which no longer needs them since its new quarters in the park are ready. The community owes its collective thanks to those who have worked for the development of the industrial park and who have engendered a spirit of. goodwill between the new industries and the city.

Now Can We Hove a Little Chat?" ••••••••••••••••*«•**•*•••••••*••••••••••••••» Show Beat j by : • Dick Kleiner « Of Full Steam Ahead '- Yesterday's approval of the Missouri High• way Department plans for the proposed Mis• sissippi River bridge at Caruthersville was L Ihe best news this area has had since the '. project was placed under the Interstate High"..way program several years ago. Approval i yesterday by the Coast Guard's Commandant " confirms the fact that the bridge will be built; further delay and a change in plans could well have brought about a kind of dc facto 7. cancellation in view by the fact that the Inter: state program will end by 1972. The federal government's approval of Highway Departmnet plans to provide a 900- foot span on the downward side and a 500- foot span on the west side also means that • ' previous estimates of Ihe project's cost will be more in line with actual construction costs. Had the government approved a 1200-foot or 1500-foot downward span, as members of the • Mississippi Valley Association were calling f for, the bridge's costs would have soared, per-"haps placing it out of reach. Plans can now proceed as they were proceeding before the association attempted to side-track them. What the association did accomplish, however, was a delay of several months. But this was all. With the Corps of Engineers and Coast Guard approval now on file, some concentrated Work can'gel underway, and we are hopeful that highway departments in Missouri and Tennessee will not begin to concentrate on this project. A great deal of preliminary work remains before right-of-way can be secured and construction started. Residents should not be too impatient, for hopefully the worst is now over. Most certainly, yesterday's decision was a welcome forward step in progress for Southeast Missouri, Northeast Arkansas and Western Tennessee. Now it should be full steam ahead nn the bridge.—Daily Dunklin Democrat (Kennett, Mo.) HOLLYWOOD - (NEA) For a girl dancer, the chance to be Fred Astaire's dancing partner automatically qualifies her for new stardom. That's the way it has worked for a tiny blonde named Barbara Hancock. In "Finian's Rainbow," now being shot at Warner Bros. Seven Arts, Barbara Hancock- does two big numbers with Astaire and gets to sing "How Are Things in Gloccamorra?" That's enough to make her a name in this town. Already, on the strength of it, her option has been picked up; she is mentioned for bigger roles ("Hello, Dolly" is a distinct possibility) and people are talking about her. as a dancer and ,. . southern charm. 11 wanted lo try something be; sides classical ballet." that something turned out !a be dancing on The Perry Como Show. She was a regular and featured in many numbers. From that, she graduated to the lead dancer in Ethel Meri man's touring "Annie Get Your Gun" company. She auditioned for the "Finian's Rainbow" part and got it — winning out over more than 250 others. And here she is, | young and excited and bubbly i all over. She still looks more ' like a high school pom-pom 'girl than a Hollywood star-to- 'be. The adjustment to Hollywood was easier for her..

Such isn't the case. Not long ago Opinion Research found that illie man on the street thinks manufacturers make 20 per cent, profit on sales after taxes. •! However, the actual net on sales In manufacturing in 1966 was only 4.4 per cent, or ; less than half what people considered to be a "fair" profit. The net in corporations of : all kinds in 1S66 was 3.4 per cent, or about 'one-third what people considered to be "fair"; ; one sixth of what they think companies make. In another survey made by Opinion Research, citizens were asked what they thought corporations did with their money they paid r to people—money shared by owners and em- ployes after paying for heat, rent, raw ma- terials, taxes, etc. Specifically, people were asked "what per cent do you think went to employes and what per cent to owners?" The replies were rather startling. Surveyors were told that 75 per cent went to owners and 25 per cent to employes. Now look at some of the facts. In 1%6, according to the Department of Commerce, it was the employes who received the biggest portion of the income. Employes got roughly six times aggregate net profits and 14 times dividends in all II. S. corporations. The nation is being swept by a wave of "economic illiteracy", according to John Q. Jennings, an international authority on economics and labor relations. Businessmen are partly to blame, he says, because they are not telling the full story to the people who, as surveys show, think business retains mOst of the profits taken in.—Laurel (Miss.)

If they can make the same number of itricks at either contract, the •ID-point difference is a win. : When the team of Jim, Judy Mary Zita and Oswald Jacoby put Oswald over the 10,000 Master Point mark in Dallas, they were faced with a possible 10- 'point loss when the older Ja- cobys bid and made a normal four hearts while it the other table the opponents pliyed the hand at three no-trump.
