Working Togellier The lliee-Stix factory project, now neariug realization, is a very good example of what can be accomplished through community cooperation. It was a big- undertaking but it was put across by effective leadership and through Ihe realization on the pail ol most of the business people and prop erty owners of Blytheville that their interest in the welfare and progress oi tho 'town amply 'justified the' investment In' tin;c', PiToi'l and hard' cash that they were called upon to make. i We hope and believe thai no rcgrcls .will follow the actual establishment : of the factory. As we have pointed out before, cotton garment manufacturing 'is not a,.high wage industry. Bill 1 Itice-Stix is a substantial concern with a reputation for dealing fairly with its employe's. It is" not coming to Blytheville for tho pm- pose of umlercuUing wage rates pre vailing in the industry but to the contrary has promised to ! maintain here •the same pay scale as in its Missouu and Illinois plants. The factory hero will provide regular employment for hundreds of local people who now arc able lo find work only occasionally. The same sense of common interest in the advancement of tho community which brought success in this fnelorj , undertaking can put across 0 (.;, 01 . y,,-,,^ for the bcneljt of Blytheville..' It -i, should be recogniml, however that (he am essential is the maintenance ot an organization through which a program for the community can be developed and through which, effort for its accomplishment can bo applied The natural organixation for these purposes is the Chamber of Commerce, which ,n a city as'small as this should and usually does serve the interests o the entire community, ]lot nicrcl of the bus.ness men who contribute chiefly to its support. The Blylhevtllt. Chamber of Commerce has been' the agency through which most'of out major community undertakings including the factory project, have'been accomphshed. n does ^-^ "JJJ needed medium for unifying community purpose and community effort. But , ts effectiveness has often'been because many who should «en on (he inside, helping 'to ulBOHHf ahead in the interests of lown aml il « People have been OUT OUll WAY on tho outside, criticizing. No doubt the Chamber"of Coni'iiierce at' ' various limes'has been guilty of mistakes \>o\); of omission and conimissidn.

The best cure for wha'lever may be wrong with it is for everyone who can afford the annual dues, which are not large, ( 0 help make it the effective agency for coTrtmiihity progress 1 ' which this ''city 'needs. •••>•- , . .
