PAOITBK BLTTHBTILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWg MONDAY. DECEMBER Winter Weather Putting Frosty Touch on Some Business Activity Bf SAM DAW8ON NEW YORK (AP) — Winter weather 1« putting a frosty touch on some business activity today «ren as it stirs up others. Cold winds are blowing up pressure for price rise* of some products. They are adding to the total of the jobless. They threaten production scheduled of some industries — but are helping others to work out from under record totals of stocks oil hand. A quarter o< a million more per «oii« are out of work, the Com mere* and Labor departments re port, 'because Sis weather has pu a orimp in the consiruction indus try activity In the northern tie of states, at well a« bringing ai end to outdoor work on the farm, and indoor work in food-processing plants. This is a purely seasna tiling, but It more than offsets thi number of persons who found job in «i« nation's stores to help with tile Christmas trade. Winter's first blusters are be ' ginning to affect some prices. Egg output has fallen, for instance, and prices are higher. Soon the weath «r may cut into the movement o meat critters from the farm to market. Hurst From Industry Icy weather is cutting off the lie?/ if iron ore down the Grea Lakes. Sieel mills have been building up stocks for the winter pull but ii they should need more before the spring thaws, and can'l get enough from their new source: In Venezuela and Labrador, they'll have to resort to the more costly rail transportation. Steel scrap, which . mixed with iron ore in the steel furnaces, is already pushing close to the record high prices set early In 1951. So far, scrap i* readily available to the mills—at a price. But a really cold and snowy winter could choke off the flow of scrap to the dealers —and add just that much more pressure to the move to raise steel prices. OH Stocks Cut Cold snaps already have cut in heavily on the nation's heating oil stocks—to the delight of the industry, which had built up record inventories. The cold winds, meanwhile, are warming the hearts of those in the natural gas, coal and oil industries who prosper as the nation tries to keep comfortable. The winter season has helped aend the use of electric power to an all-time high—an unprecedented total of almost ll'i billion kilo.. watt-hours of power was produced last week. Merchants welcome the cold too. It has been blowing customers into their stores seeking overcoats, blankets and galoshes. Permit for Sale of Camden Radio Station Is Cancelled * WASHINGTON I.?—The sale of a permit for radio station KPLN in Camden, Ark., by Leo Howard has been canceled by the Federal Communications Commision, which said circumstances surrounding Howard's acquisition of the permit Tver* "tainted with fraud and deceit." Findings of FCC Examiner Elizabeth C. Smith were adopted by the Commission in withdrawing authority granted to Howard in 1963 to sell the KPLN permit to D. R. James Jr., of Camden. Examiner Smith said Howard I has misrepresented his finances ir obtaining the permit, and subsequently concealed from the FCC transfers of stock in the station to other persons. These actions, she held, rendered Howard "unfit" to hold n permit. The FCC at first approved How- WINNER — Bonnie Mills, senior at Keiser High School, received a $25 cash award in the scholarship essay contest sponsored by the Lion Oil Co.

"Sure, I' ; vc had the bellyache, mumps and all but I survived because I used my head a little. If it would have done any good, I'd have worried like everyone else."
