THURSDAY, JULY 13, 1950 BI.YTITEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NTCWS Businessmen Keep Anxious Ear Cocked for Possible Controls By SAM DAIVSON NEW YORK, July 13, (AP) — Many businessmen are gun-shy of y* words "controls" ajid ration- ^^Ul of them are keeping an anxious ear cocked toward Washington, as the Korea'n war piles up its uncertainties, its threats of shortages, its probabilities of increased military demands on industry. Steelmen are discussing today the likelihood of allocations. Some lay a new voluntary allocation plan is being prepared. Others are con M/ssco Court House Here Getting Interior 'Face-Lifting' BJ JEAN DEDMAN (Courier News Staff Writer) ..From janitor's supply room to Child Welfare Department. That's just one success story of the North County Court House Mississippi here. Much of the whole Court House vinced "President Truman is about! is getting an interior face lifting, to ask for & standby law giving him ' All her employees say her new make up is very becoming. They agree that it gives her that "come- in-and-make-yourself - at - home" look that is so typical of Mississippi County hospitality and niakes her look years younger and lost more pleasant. Who would ever think of a Janitor's room being changed almost magically into a pretty office complete with shelves of pottery and toys? It was as if a wand was waved over the room that resembled a set for a House of Horrors movies. Tiie dark, stuffy room with spider \vebs covering the extra. wash basins and old broken brooms hanging on dirty walls is now bright and cheerful, people have said Mississippi County is the wonder Land of the Wonder State, and the new mandatory power to allocate iron and steel, and probably other scarce materials, such as copper, zinc, lumber, and benzene. Top labor leaders, worried about controls might take .are conferring with the National Security ' Resources Board. They demand a voice in planning the controls and want an active, not an advisory, part In their execution. Oi! Industry Set The oil industry is all set. Better than most industries, it knows just what Is expected of it. Standby orders telling refineries what wiil be expected of them, including now much high-octane fuel for planes, are at hand In case of an emergency. Munitions board officials, how- one foot' behind Posted In an Osceola. eyecatching spot In the front hall of the Osecola Court House Is the unassuming sign, "If you spit on [he floor at home, go home and spit." •, say the orders will not be put 0 { fi< . e effect unless the Kore looks as though it could ... i prove a point there.

Paper manutacturer.s are talking of returning voluntarily to their wartime allocations system by fail because of the steadily increasing demand for some varieties of paper products. The shipping and aviation industries already have been called upon by the government to help get men and supplies to Korea. Cargo planes have been taken off the^Atlantic routes to ferry war mateirals across the Pacific. The military sea trans- ' portation service has chartered 16 surface ships for military duty, to transport both men and cargo. The service says there is no shortage of shipping for this purpose. Food processors are wondering what the government may have in mind for them in the way of price controls. Price jumps in meat, wheat, coffee and sugar, if continued, might lead to talk of reviving controls, some concede. The Agriculture Department stresses that there are ample grain crops in sight this year for all needs. And Ir.rge government stocks, acquired to support prices, are at hand. Awaits Report ^kThe White House so far has con- Bhted itself with saying the President will make up his mind about both" allocations and price controls after'he gets the mid-year report from his Council of Economic Ad- Tisors. The over-due report Is expected in some quarters to plump for "business as usual"—uniess hoarding of key commodities shoulc develop. Steelmen are the most worried at the moment. They are already producing at capacity to meet civilian demands, and must find room for the expected military orders. Washington observers believe the President will soon ask congress lor mandatory power to allocate ircn and steel and other metals, but cnly on a standby basis -just in case. The government planners seem inclined to view any voluntary allocation schemes as unworkable. ;upply room} But she can't be any more pleased .han John Mayes, school supervisor 'or the county, and his secretary Mrs. Ivan VanPatten say they are. They have a new office that is downstairs and even on the southeast corner. Their new office has .he same green and yellow paint :hat all the rest of the offices will :iave. Even the trim Is spruced up ivlth a new coat of varnish. Miss ElizAbeth Blythe, county clerk didn't get a new office, but she did get a new look for her old office, and a new desk, tod! Now when a couple wants to get married in her office, she'll be proud to show them her "second home." Right now, Circuit clerk Harvey Morris is playing beautician. His office may smell like linseed oil and turpentine, but in a few days he will, be working in a modernized office with a new paint Job and even a new pholostatic machine. Apparently he felt that the machine deserved a better place to live than in the old office. All the offices, from Airs. Floyd Haralson's Red Cross office on the very top right down to Mrs. Redman's Tuberculosis office on the very bottom will get their beauty care in a short while. However, even with this beauty care the North Mississippi County Court House is getting, she is still State Seeks Return Of Circus Robbers LITTLE ROCK, July 13.
