The Boom's Hangover If you were not on North Sixth or South Division sometime during ..Christmas Eve, you missnrl an excellent opportunity to participate in some of the larger traffic jams the city has been host to during the holiday season. If this privilege was denied yon, take, solace in the fact that it will he available airain. Actually, it is almost joyous news to bring, this business of pointing to blocks of bumper to bumper traffic. Just think of the quite nice little communities whose big problem is that they have no traffic, problem. What has happened has been some £!) million worth of commercial dcvcl- 'opment in north Blytheville and continued upgrading of commercial property in south Blytheville. Together, the development Of these two areas (one obviously triggered by Urban Renewal, the other totally the work of the private sector) represents the largest com. mercial building boom this city ever has seen. The size of the older shop- ping area has been doubled Sixth Street, »t its intersection with Chicknsawba, has become an unbelievable focal point of automobile traffic, notwithstanding the very handy traffic device which the stata Highway Department installed there a number of years ago. Lining of lanes on the city side of Chickasawba would help traffic flow here, but obviously the Sixth Street intersection must ba widened to include a left turn lana coming off Sixth onto Chickasawba. It is somewhat disappointing that Urban Renewal with its attention to detail and planning did not anticipats the necessity for more traffic flow down Sixth at least to Moultrie. . Now, however, both the South Division and North Sixth traffic problems are city problems. Obviously both approaches to the center of the city need to be four lanes. Both are eligible for state aid (as part of Highway 61), which leaves the city with the nasty matter of right-of-way to handle. Of OU Stop Wallace Gov. Rockefeller opined recently tliat a .third party Presidential race by former Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama would hurt both parties about equally in this state. "I think be will get his suppport from reactionary elements of both parties," the governor .Mated. 1~T That seems a fair assumption at this point, . rbut the leaders of both parties should steel .'"themselves for possible surprises. National commentators generally believe '""that a Wallace candidacy would weaken the "Republicans more than the Democrats, de• v'priving the GOP of many LBJ-protest votes it ""would certainly receive if the Alabaman were , : hot running. Someone has even offered the '"."laughable suggestion that Wallace's effort is • 'actually a campaign to help Lyndon Johnson. i 7 But Wallace is likely to run. He seems to ' "believe he might win. A New York Times re".porter quotes him as saying, while scanning ' : the Cascades from aloft, "Just think, some ••day I'll be President of all that." Arkansans can expect to see much of him. This state will undoubtedly be one of his main targets, and, as Rockefeller noted, he will suck in much of the chronic aginner element and those who are susceptible to skillful emotional appeals. And it appears that the Democratic Party in this state has possibly more to fear from Wallace than the Republicans. After all, the Democrats' last candidate for governor was a high-pitched Wallaceite who grabbed the nomination in a brushfire primary battle. That candidate, "Justice Jim," seems ready to hit the trail for Wallace in Arkansas. Wallace could split the Democratic ranks enough to give the GOP a Presidential victory in Arkansas, or, if the Democrats, who are still lopsidely the majority party, do not efficiently organize to counter him, he might even carry Arkansas himself. No possibility can be ruled out in this time of national upheaval.
