MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Real Meaning of Automoticity Has Market Probers Stymied By SAM UAWSON WASHINGTON (AP) — Let your senator get curious about what makes the ticker tape at the stock exchange tick and he'll get wound up in the strangest things. Automoticity,' for instance. Or why Bessie is having trouble getting married in Youngstown. Oh why one of the nation's top-paid industrialists has to borrow at the bank for personal reasons. The Senate Banking Committee, which is Hearing the end of its study of how Wall Street operates, never has found out exactly what autonloticlty is. It was Chairman Pulbright (D- Ark) who observed plaintively that he was having trouble understanding what automation was. So, to bo helpful, Harlow H. Curtice, president of General Motors, who was on the witness stand at the time, threw out the word automoticity as a substitute. The senator recoiled, as well he might And the matter was dropped with almost unseemly speed for a senatorial hearing. Automation has been bothering others here too. President Eisenhower refers to it ns "another word that has now arisen to plague us some." Several Definitions To most folk it probably seems to mean: "Look. Mom, the factory's running without hands." President Eisenhower says it means finding ways of doing work with fewer man-hours devoted to it. Curtice calls it "making tools to produce goads more efficiently than you did last year." Engineers, of course, define it as running a factory as nearly automatically as possible. "Bessie" Identified Bessie gets into the stock market hearing strictly by the back door. Bessie Is the name Wall Streeters use when they should be saying Bethlehem Steel Corp. A committee member. Sen. Douglas (D- 111), wrote a letter to the Justice Department asking how about Bessie's known y6n to merge with Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co And the Justice Department ha-s just replied that it will ask the courts, if Bessie persists, to halt the wedding. Curtice agreed with one senator that debt was a problem. He said he'd had to go to the bank for a personal loan so he could take advantage of his rights as a GM stockholder to buy more shares under the recent stock offering. He said that neither the company nor he really enjoys being in debt. Chewing Tobacco Is No Grounds For Family Spat OEOWLEY, La. W>—City Judge Edmund M.

Main St. Why Arkansas Roads Should Be CONCRETE Whether you drive for pleasure or business, there are two reasons why you have a vital interest in die kind of pavement used: 1. You pay for Arkansas roads with your license fees, gas and other taxes. 2, Your safety is at stake. With concrete roads you get more for your tax dollar. Here's why; Concrete's first cost is moderate, yet It can be designed accurately for any axfe load. And it keeps that load-carrying capacity through its long life. Concrete costs less to maintain than other pavements, as proved by official PORTLAND C E M E 916 ML1S BUILDING, records issued by 24 state highway departments over an average of 21 years. Concrete serves longer—twice as long as the next most durable pavement commonly built—according to latest data re* leased by the Highway Research Board; Moderate first cost t low maintenance cost -f- long life » low annual cost. Concrete is safer too. Its gritty surface grips your tires, permitting you to stop fast, without skidding, even in wet weather. And its light color rellccts more light, giving you maximum visibility at night. // )v>« can't sec, yow can't he Sitjff IT ASSOCIATIO MEMPHIS 3, TENNESSEE mil arftnlitltM li Imprm iri irflMl MM um ll pttlltnd urnanl and (oncr»U .,, through ulenlilk rtl^arth and ina.intulna luld walk "YUP, MOTHER KNOWS BEST, SHE ALWAYS TRADES AT HAYS" ' Yes, wi*e mothers and h oust wives are quick to take advantage of the many advantages of shopping: at Hays.
