.THURSDAY, FEBRUARY M, 19M BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGBTHB1S_ Cost of Copper Has Producers Fearing Worst By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Copper today is at the highest price level since the time some 80 years ago when it was considered a scarce metal. At 46 cents a pound copper brings boom times in the mining states, but producers aren't as gleeful as you might think. They fear nigh-priced copper will lose some permanent markets to sub- stltuees-r-chiefly aluminum and plastics. The United States uses-so much copper now—more than half of of that mined each year this side of the Iron Curtain—that it can no longer control the world market. Chile can, and just has, -forced the price up here. Europe can, and does, snag copper supplies that American users would like to have. Hope for Relief The Copper & Brass Research Assn. holds out hope of a 16 per cent increase in copper-producing capacity in the non-Communist world in the next three years. Copper users here clamor for relief now—eyeing the govern- Caruthersville News By SONNT SANDERS Dolph Moore has been appointed chairman of tie Heart Fund drive for Caruthersville. It's sponsored by ttje Missouri Heart Association and the American Heart Association. Collections will be made from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26.

Norman Hahn, of Jefferson City, worker for the State Highway Department, has sst up rubber hoses across streets at 44 places in Caruthersville with counting devices attached. This is for a routine two- week traffic-check of the city. Leonard Hall, St. Louis newspa per columnist, will appear at the high school here April 3 under auspices of the Classroom Teachers Association. He will talk about wildlife and soil conservation. 1 Earl Hath, St. Louis investment broker, spoke to Kiwanis Club about birds. Mr. Hath is a member of the lecture committee of the St. Louis Audubon Society. He showed color pictures of birds. A boys' double quartet and several other musicians, directed by Edgar Ailor, music director of the high school, presented a program for Rotray Club's meeting. nient's strategic' stockpile of the metal and urging tough curbs on the export of copper scrap. If you're in a hurry for copper it seems as scarce a metal now as 80 years ago, before the big mines were opened. K you go to a custom smelter for copper today you may pay more than 52 cents a pound. A year ago it cost 30 cents. Early in 1950 the price was as low as 16 cents. Government controls in World War H pegged it at 12 cents. Programs Started Copper expansion programs are under^wayr the Copper A. Bra Research Assn. notes today in survey of world production. Existing mines are tapping additiona' ore bodies, and new properties will come into production during the next three years. The association estimates mine production outside the Iron Curtain as 2,778,000 tons in 1955. It estimates that strikes prevented the mining- of another 150,000 tons giving a capacity total of 2,928, 000 tons. It says 229,600 additiona tons will be added to capaciti this year, another 105,500 in 1957 and 123,600 more in 1958. This Would bring total capacity in 1958 59 3,386,600 tons. But demand could keep rising: too. The Bureau of Mines reports that in the United state: per capita consumption jumped States, • world consumption was by 1954. Yet, outside the United from 5 pounds in 1900 to 17 pounds less than 2 pounds per capita by 1954.
