WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN What Ails Bririan: II Prosperity AAeans Fear By TOM A. CULLHN NEA Staff Correspondent LONDON — (NEA) — The craziest boom on record has turned Britain into a nation of fingernail biters. Instead of spreading happiness, prosperity has had the opposite effect: it has produced a jittery gen- oration. The average Briton is making more money than ever before, yet his face is as long as a market- house. "What Britain needs is a psycht- ..Irisi, tot an economist," a visiting American businessman remarked recently, "The people need to have (.heir heads, not their pocket books, examined." There are more jobs than men in Britain. In the whole of London's 9,000,000 population, for example, only 23,227 persons are listed as unemployed. Yet the average Briton is haunted by the spectre of unemployment. A recent poll shows that nearly half the British people believe ihey are headed for an economic crisis, while another 27 per cent "don't know." , With wages the, highest in British history, industry is torn with strife. Wage demand succeeds wage demand, and in turn, are followed by strikes. Many of the strikes are cat-and-dog fights between rival unions over which one is to get the biggest share, of the spoils, British restlessness takes strange, unexpected forms. Hordes of British workers suddenly turned up on the continent this summer, having passed up the salt-water taffy of Brighton for a holiday at Europe's swankier spas. In Spain, France and Yugoslavia they arrived— nylon-shirted dockers from Liverpool, coal miners from the Rhondda. cotton mill operators from Lancaster. They stayed in good hotels, ordered the best wines, tasted for the Most of these articles are bought on the installment, plan, or the "never-never," as the British call It. "It used to be the pawn shop that made workers lie aWake in a cold sweat." comments Mrs. Bessie Braddock, La bom Member, of Parliament from Liverpool. ."Now it's the nightmare of a van drawing up to take away the television set." With jobs plentiful and wages high, more, and more British workers are now climbing into the middle class with comparative ease. British workers are also demanding trade unions that concentrate on pork, chops, rather than politics The average worker couldn't care less what stand his union takes on world disarmament or the hydrogen bomb. What he wants is more cash. Living only in the present, his outlook can best be summed up by: - "I'm getting mine now while the getting is good — let tomorrow worry about tomorrow." Hoxie School Boycott Urged WINONA, Miss. «V-Parents in Hoxie. Ark,, should keep their children out of school to prevent inte- Rregation of the races, a segregation leader says. "All hope for a segregated school in Hoxie. Ark., is not lost in spite of a federal injunction against interference by any white group," said Robert Patterson, executive secretary of the Mississippi Association of Citizens Councils, "Americans who believe in self government as provided by our constitution should simply withhold their children from any school that is forcibly integrated," Patterson said in a statement Monday. "This would put the pressure on the school board. Let them see if they can operate and finance a school that has an handful of integrated students and still maintain the goodwill of the community." He -said the loss of one year's schooling for a child would be small sacrifice compared with "our sacred right to educate our children as we see fit." Hoxie schools are scheduled to re-open next Monday. Next: Where Socialism failed. Alamo is Spanish for "poplar or cottonwood tree." THERE ARE MORE JOBS than men, more money than goods. But the average Briton is haunted by the spectres of unemployment and bankruptcy, despite job security like this. first time such specialties as snails and truffles..At the bullfights they bought the best seats; their pitch on the Lido in Venice was not far from that of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Continental hosts noticed three selves. "They looked like men who are; overdrawn at the bank," a French I hotelier commented. j The whole story of British post- j war inflation and rising prices is ! told in the figures for income and j brothers, (2) they had no hesitation about spending at a time when their country's balance of payments position is precarious, and (3) few of them looked as though they were really enjoying them- Production of Crude Oil Up TULSA, Okla. MP)—Daily average production of crude oil in the United States increased by 32,150 barrels to 6.739,725 barrels during the week ended Oct. 15, the Oil and Gas Journal's survey showed yesterday.

They show that during this | better dressed than their European period income rose by 65 per cent while production rose by only 26 j per cent — for more money than goods. In vain does Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden warn that Britain is | not paying its way, that It stands in "mortal peril" of being priced out of the world markets. How do Britons spend their money? They are now spending double the 1946 amount on automobiles. They are buying 89 per cent more furniture. 69 per cent more radios. television sets and electric gadgets. 29 per cent more clothing.
