PAGE SIX BLYTHEVIU.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1954 End of a Cotton Story- Most Mississippi County farmers will remember the first two of these photographs. They especially should remember the first. It w»« taken the morning after an intense hall storm pelted down on the young cotton at the Russell Wilder farm, Just east of Burdette. At that lime, the cotton was stripped of just about every leaf. In many cnaes, me stem Itself was broken or torn. There wa» doubt as to whether It would make, hut since It was June 17, there was little choice but to leave it and hope for the best. About six weeks later, when the second photograph was made, the cotton obviously was coming around. It was well behind other crops in the area, but the remarkable cotton had rallied bravely. The final picture w as taken just a day or two ago and standing in near-waist-high cotton is County Agent Keith Bll- brey. Though still showing signs of damage, the field evidently Is going to come through with a decent yield ...» far cry from the stubby, naked stems photographed on Juna 18. (A Courier News Photo Feature) Business Optimism on As Economic Stability Upswing Mounts By SAM DAWSON NEW YOB (ft— Optimism Is on the upbeat today as business starts the new month. Improvement In sales, orders and production is sighted by an array of executives in wide rango of fields, from steel to textiles. Other businessmen are learning to live with that new thing—stability. Since the second world war. stability has been a stranger to the economic acene. Crisis has followed crisis In business as well as in world affairs and businessmen became used, if not reconciled, to living in »n atmosphere of uncertainty. To some, the comparative stability of the economy in recent months has been a strange and uneasy experience. But hopes for a good fourth quarter are high in many fields now. Edward C. Sammons, president of United States National Bank of Portland, Ore., notes thnt seldom hcs purchasing power stayed as steady as it has this year. He asr sures the National Consumers Pi- nance Assn. meeting In San Fran-Cisco that the outlook for the long pull is one of economic opUmism. E. J. Hanley, president of Al- legheny Ludlum Steel, sees blue sky today after a summer of dreary weather in the steel Industry. His company's earnings were off in the three months Just ended. But he seea definite signs of a pickup In orders and thinks the steel mills will be busy enough In the next three months to recover much of the ground they lost earlier this year. Textile Outlook flood For the first time in three years, J. Spencer Love, chairman of Burlington Mills, feels optimistic about the outlook for the textile industry. Sales In this recently depressed business have picked up so much of late that Love thinks the momentum Is suro to continue Into mes. Retail sales arc up from coast to coast, Lovn says. Inventories hnvo been whittled. Distress merchandise Is hard to find. And September saw a definite switch for the better In sales volume and price firmness. The continuing building boom brings J°y lo mnny Industries. L. M. Cassldy. chairman of Johns- MnnvHlo, snys his comimny has | turned the corner on sales and 76-Y 'ear-Old Risks Life To Save Baby FREDERICK, Md. 1*1—Sllilc police today told n story o( heroism In which B 16-year-old white youth risked death by entering i\ burning house at nearby Doubs to rescue a 2-year-old Negro bnby.

Earnings slipped with sales of the company's Industrial products during the first half of the year. But Casaldy says a strong trend toward larger sales has recently developed and .shows every sign of holding for the rest of the year. If flo, the building materials firm should end 1954 with n sales total equalling that of 1063. The only dark spot is that increased manufacturing costs may hold earnings down. The appliance field had Its (rou- bles, too, earlier this year. But Jwlson S. Sayre, pre.sUiunt of the Norgc division of I3or^- Warner, times as . large us in the same month a year ago, when the recession was getting under way and hitting the appliance business one of its heaviest blows. Sayre forecasts that final figures for 11)54 will far onUshlno those of last year. "Considerable evidence 1 Is on :iancl which suggest that the lempn of business has quieked since labor .lay," the Guaranty Trust Co. of Mew York agrees, in Its October .urvcy of the economy. But It adds, with, bankers' naution: "It is too early to be absolutely .sure." October, in other words, looks like the .start of a Rood season. But Just don't uncross your flutters yet.
