WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Probers Take Look at GM's Outside Interests By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate antitrust subcommittee plans to explore today opera- lions of General Motors Corp. in fields other than automobiles. I Chairman O'Mahoney (D-Wyo)' PI,-1 one facet of the Riant corpora ! ion's activities to be covered would be its "dominant position In the manufacture of locomotives.."" Pie commented that many prisons were unaware of the full extent of GM's far-flung produc- 7. K. Quinn. New York business-! m n and author who is a sharp! L-niic of big co.. orations, will! 0 ___ complete his testimony as the sub- versity,""saidi'the'niTmber oT om- conimittee begins Its second day oi the GM study. A subcommittee aid explained it had been decided not to release names of future witnesses in advance. That was done, he .said, t^ciuise most of them either deal with GM in some way, or are competitors. "Some of them are reluctant to come at all.' 1 the aide said, adding that a number had to be subpoenaed. The subcommittee yesterday heard Quinn assail GM as "entirely too big" and took testimony from economists on the cone n- tratfo of production in the automobile industry. Donald A. Moore, professor of economics at Michigan State Uni-. panics had dwindled from 88 In 1921 to six at present. General I Motors now produces about half ofi all (he cars turned out by the six, Moore said the franchises under which most retail car dealers operate are "peculiarly one-sided' documents with all the advantages accruing to the manufacturer. He said many dealers complain o being forced to take too high (,uotas of cars, but added there is "nothing to stop" th!o Tactice. The economist said that, In the present situation, practically all of tl D price rompt'tition in CAV sell-] ing must be shouldered by the dealers. Asked if it would not be better for consumers if manufacturers! made across-the-board priced de-i creases, Moore said this undoubt- 1 edly would benefit consumers. But he commented that if the big three—GM, Ford and Chrysler —were to get into a price battle, he feared for the lives of the three remaining independent manufacturers. Cracker Prices Are Crumbling LOUISVILLE. Ky. I* — Cracker prices were cvumbling in Louisville today.

Wl — Mrs. Dorothy Hendrix. deputy treasurer of Okfuskee County, has a new name today. It's "dead-eye Dot" In recognition for her pistol-shooting ability. Mrs. Hendrix found a wolf prowl- ins in her back yard, grabbed her .22 caliber pistol and plugged the critter five times. She snipped off its ears, took them to the courthouse and collected $2.50 — the first woman in the county's history to receive a bounty payment. New Orleans were blamed for the price crack.
