PAGE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Businessmen Preparing For Usual Summer Siesta By SAM I1AWSOX NEW YORK (AP) — Business is gettinc ready for its usual summer siesta. The question this year is: a t what level will it start up again in September? A number of Important Inciust- + tries will largely close down during part or all of July for Ilic annual vacations. This practice is spreading through industry. Each year more plants join the vacation shut-down move. And this year some plants have announced they arc extending the vacation closings for a week or two longer, because new orders aren't too abundant—one of the increasing signs that the economy may be backing away from the peak activity of the long boom. Some Boom A summer slow flown, of course, thy (R-\Vis), wndii expect to boom this summer as i controversy over "book burnin never before. These are the ones said yesterday he plans move public.

Some thy (K-Wis), wadincr back nil" the " " that cater to America-on-the-move. Resorts, shipping, airline and automobile industries anticipate their biggest summer. Gasoline dealers, busy at the moment raising prices, expect to sell more than ever before. But while vacationists are gadding, their home factories will be idling. The index of industrial production is due for a slide. In itself this won't mean too too much. The question will be how much it recovers in late August and early September. Most businessmen are waiting to see the strength of the fall pick-up before making any predictions on whether the boom has topped out and a mild recession is coming. Too Rosey The Industrial production index, and several other statistical measuring sticks, won't be too indicative this summer for still another reason. For the next two months, comparisons with year ago figures will have a much too rosey hue. That's because the big steel strike of last summer put industrial production figures then at an unusually low summer level. In many places the strike also lowered retail sales figures. This happened not only in steel making centers but in other Industrial communities where lay- hearings designed to show whoth- some of the authors were Communists. works were removed in at least Mime libraries: Lillian Hcllmnn, Clarence K.

' Only IB authors, the Times said, have been listed specifically by the State Department in ils book-culling operation. President Eisenhower spoke out on June H against "the book burn- involved j ers," and there was some speculations he had McCarthy in mind.

Osceola 8890 836 • Thia advertisement in tho third in a special series which begmi over a year ago, and which is designed to tnvo you, aa a prospective buyer, detailed and helpful information. We'd bo happy to have your comments about this type of advertising. This ifl tho 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air 4-Door Sedan. It's one of 18 Chevrolet models in 3 series, which add up to the widest, choice tn the low-price field. Some Chevrolet advantages worth considering when you're ready to choose a car... Next to a new house, a car is probably your most important purchase. Here are some facts to help you make up your mind about which make to buy. Don't you agree that it's well worthwhile to weigh al] the factors carefully before you buy any new car? Let's consider the major reasons why people choose one make over another and see how the 1953 Chevrolet stands in those respects. Styling You Can Stay Proud Of Styling, of course, is a matter of personal taste. Because we think Chevrolet is the best-looking car in its field, doesn't necessarily mean you'll think so, too. But we can tell you that the majority of our showroom visitors prefer Chevrolet styling and compare its appearance most favorably with cars costing a great deal more. And you might consider this: Chevrolet styling is the newest in its field. It's the kind of styling that stays new, too. For it is based, not on fads or extremes, but on the fundamentals of good, modern design, The One Automobile Body Almost Everybody Knows It's not really surprising that so many people prefer Chevrolet's appearance. For Chevrolet is the only low-priced car with Body by Fisher. And Fisher, as you know, is the only automobile body manufacturer with a world-wide reputation for styling, craftsmanship and quality. The Many Benefits of High-Compression Power V\*hen you-drive a new Chevrolet (and we hope you'll do that soon), you'll notice things: faster acceleration from a standing start; greater passing ability in traffic and on the highway; the new ense with which you climb stef.p hills. Those are just some of the benefits of Chevrolet's new high-compression power. In gearshift models, there is an advanced 108-h.p. "Thrift-King" en- Bine with a 7.1 to 1 compression ratio. Teamed with the new Powerglide automat ic transmission * is an entirely new 115-h.p. "Blue-Flame" engine with 7.5 l.o 1 compression ratio. It is the most powerful engine in Chevrolet's field. A Great Gain in Gasoline Economy Along with remarkable new performance, Chevrolet's advanced engines give you far greater gasoline mileage. In fact, this year marks the most, important gain in economy in Chevrolet history. And that includes sub- stantial savings on over-all upkeep, aa well as on gasoline. New Getaway in the New Powerglide* The new Powerglide automatically drops into "Low" range for starting and for passing in city traffic. Then, as you glide along, it slips smoothly and almost imperceptibly into cruising range. The results are much faster and more positive acceleration, and much lower fuel consumption. The First Power Steering in a Low-Priced Car This year's Chevrolet is the only car in its field to offer you the extra ease and convenience of Power Steering, optional at extra cost. With it, you can spin the wheel with the strength of one finger. You can seesaw in and out of tight parking places without the slightest strain. You get an additional cushion qpainsfc road shocks and jars. Driving is easier, safer. A Smoother and a Safer Hide Chevrolet is the heaviest low-priced car. Model for model, a Chevrolet will weigh as much as 200 pounds more than the other makes. You often hear people say they buy high-priced cars because they're heavier, hold the road better and ride better. Well, isn't it logical, then, that Chevrolet's extra weight (which comes from extra strength of body and frame) would result in a better ride? • Chevrolet is the Lowest-Priced Line Certainly, price is one of the most important factors of all. We're glad to be able to tell you that Chevrolet is the lowest-priced line in its field. Now, you might well ask, "How can Chevrolet offer me more and still cost less?" There is a simple, logical answer to that. Remember that Chevrolet builds more cars than any other manufacturer. Chevrolet, along with General Motors, has greater facilities for research, for engineering and production. So, isn't it reasonable that these greater facilities bring manufacturing advantages and economies which Chevrolet can pass on to you in terms of higher quality at lower price? An Endorsement Given JN'o Other Car Again this year, more people are buying Chevrolets than any other car. Obviously that wouldn't be true unless people liked Chevrolet better. Unless Chevrolet offered more things people want—more value. So, when you're ready to choose your new car, wouldn't you agree that Chevrolet merits your careful consideration? We welcome your visit at any time, so that you can look the car over yourself and try it out on the road. ^Combination of 115-h.p.
