BlythevIHe Daily News Blythevttle Courier BJylheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader Rabson Predicts Biggest Business Volume In History RI/YTTHRV1LLE, ARKANSAS, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 19/10 U SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS' BY ROGER W. HABSON ; BABSON PARK, Mass., Dec. 31.—A -question'to discim before making a forecast for 19-11 is: "Will World War 11 continue throughout the year?" My answer is that it will surely continue at least until the fall. For the purposes of my forecast, this is equivalent to the entire year of 1941. Germany is storing up huge quantities of arsenic to be •used in an attempt to destroy the crops of Great Britain next summer or next fall. If Kngland is also storing arsenic and succeeds in destroying the crops of German/, the war iimy end next fall. It is evident that both sides will attempt destruction by arsenic, fire, or otherwise. I say this because the effect of .such u crop-killing campaign would be more serious Tor Germany than ['or England. England is dependent to the extent of only 35 "/,. on her home crops, while Germany's dependence is 90%. Germany, moreover, is unable to import except by robbing adjoining nations, and hence. must conserve all her own crops. People arc not frightened by bombs, as only one person out of many thousands suffers from them; hut the fear of starvation will throw a nation into panic. Hence, .statisticians believe that the ending of the war in favor of England depends upon the success.of the British blockade supplemented by the destruction of German crop.s. LET'S LOOK AT THE RECORD Lei me say that 1941 should be the Lest business y«ar this country has ever witnessed. Everything from cradles to. coffins, including dividends and pay envelopes, should show a fine gain over 1940. We hear PROMISES "GREATEST VICTORY" Britons Must Tighten Belt; Italians Caught Roger W.

When you consider, however, that the Excess Profits Tax on firms with Urge invested capital does not.sbegin until they earn %% net, even taxes are not so serious. Industrial • activity directly related to defense will account for about 10% of total 1941 business. Production indirectly related to defense will also aggregate about 10%. Thus, in 1941, 20% of our total business activity will come from armaments. I expect the Babsonchart Index of Business to average about 10% higher than in 1940. Notable gains should take place in textiles, shoes, mining, -foods, printing, publishing, ship-building, building, freight traffic, and many other industries: By spring, business volume will be recording a new all-time high. , It .would-be foolish to/.put a definite figure-Yon what the' Babsonchart LONDON, Dec. 31. (UP) —Lord Woolton, food minister, warned the nation in a broadcast today that it would have to eat less in 1941 and that the danger from German attack on Britain's food supplies •vas much worse than in the last war. "The enemy is making a direct ittack on our food ships and is •.inking quite a number of them," .ie said. "We ate nearly a.s much in 1940 is we did in 1939," he said, "and .ve shall have to do with less meat n 1941." He urged the public to eat more potatoes as a substitute - for bread. "We grow potatoes here," he mid, "but the. vast majority of he flour we use in bread takes up shipping space." Woolton' complained that Bri-i ATHENS, Greece, Dec.;:) 1 (UP) — Capture of another 1,000 Italians, including an entire battalion with its •<>!'- fleers, was reported today; in a Creek war communique'. Prisoners included 1 sections : uf ski detachments which , CQiintier- atttacked and were dispersed, leaving stragglers and much ' of their equipment 'behind, the commu- nique said.

The public security ministry reported that Salonika was bombed "with a few victims and slight damage"; that there werq- n few victims and slight damage Hn a raid on Janina and that Prev^za on the ; west coast and agricultural i New County Official,' districts without of Kozant damage. were/- bombed In a New Year's message to ijhe break- 'ast foods. "We can hot afford shipping .pace for breakfast foods," he said. '•Regard your canned foods as in iron ration in case supplies break down at any time in your district." Lord Woolton asked the public not to buy cheese unless necessary. He indicated that in future less Booking fats would be available. "This is indeed war in all its darkness against the food with which we sustain life," he said. "The • war against food supplies may grow -. in intensity as the months go ;on—not a pleasant prospect, but it's war."

This calls for :a> reduction in unemployment of 50%, an increase in building of 20%. and an increase in retail .trade , of 5-7%.

The admiralty said that "con- houses, and the unprecedented supply of idle funds are bound to lead to a return of good times. When,we add to this fact the tremendous effect of the defense program, the result is staggering. If you have any doubt, read in your newspaper of the contracts made by the government every day for supplies of all kinds. Not only will the demand lor goods be greater during World War II. but our "industries are in far better position to handle the business. The automobile industry ior instance, has built approximately 76,000,000 cars since 1918 It is now prepared to build airplane engines and machine guns as well as trucks and tanks. The electric-power industry, thanks to President Roosevelt has covered the country with a vast net-work of transmission lines' furnishing today power at rates 40^ below those of 1913 Our generating capacity is from four to five times that of Great Britain or Germany Experts say that the war will be won by OIL. if so. we are fortunate I in having three-fifths of the annual world's production, distributed by over 95,000 mile.-; of pipe lines to all pares of -the country We have over one-third of the railroad mileage of the world The physical condition of our railroads has improved as money, which here- loiore has been spent on Interest, has been put into maintenance. Let us not forget our telephone service which connects 40,000 communities fl^?' f100 - 000 - 000 mlle s °f w^e. All of these items show tremendous ncieases from every point of view. Whatever may be the truth'as to the nations preparedness for war, it is certainly true that we-never before were so well prepared for a great industrial expansion WHAT ABOUT THE RAILROADS* As readers know.

Neither man has made any statement and they are being held merely as suspects, officers said.

No mob violence is feared but officers do not believe the case is yet solved, it was announced this afternoon, so identity of the two men arrested will be kept secret until "we are a little farther along," Sheriff Jackson said.

(UP)—Prosiclcnt Roosevelt's call for "more oi' everything" for Great Britain ionised attention today on .proposals'to make available to the British some army airplanes and more destroyers.

The plan WHS understood to be based on urgent needs outlined by British officials here who were said to be .seeking SO more destroyers. It was believed that the plan, when submitted lo the president, would recommend that some number up to that, amount be made available. ' None of the details of how the destroyers or planes would be transferred were disclosed. Last fall Mr. Roosevelt swapped 50 destroyers for tho rights to bases on British possessions in the Western Hemisphere. Officials working on the proposal to turn over to the British more destroyers and planes now In service contend that President Roosevelt's plan to convert the American arms' industry into an "arsenal for democracy" must be supplemented with other aid while details of the program to loan or lease war equipment to Britain are being worked out, Until American arms production picks up. they believe, the : 'British need BERLIN, Dec. 31.

He.Is expected to ask congress, at that time and subsequently In his budget message the following day, to enact legislation that would permit fulfillment of his loan-lease plan whereby this government will pay for war materials and then loan or lease them to Britain, and possibly Greece and China. While congressional and public sentiment was largely in tune with Mr. Roosevelt's fireside chat Sun- clay, proposals to dispose of planes and destroyers now on hand might encounter some congressional resistance. The extent to which.all or any of Mr. Roosevelt's plans to aid Britain will be put Into effect Is the foremost Issue facing the next congress which convenes Friday.
