MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 1952 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Store Buyers on March in U.S. By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (A 1 )—Thou sand s of •tore buyers are on the march today with money they can spend—if they *ee a good buy.'The greatest num- Costello on Trial For 'Contempt' Government Charges He Wronged Crime Group 11 Times NEW YORK m—Gambler Prank Costello goes on trial today (1 p.m CST) on contempt of the Senate charges that arose from the Kefauver committee hearings. The government charges thai Costello, an immigrant boy who grew up to he a power In politic.'; and the underworld, wronged the Senate crime committee 11 times in his appearances before H las' March. The committee called him befon it to tell what lie knew about crime. He had been reputed as a king of the underworld and maker and breaker if politicians. Costello Was Sliy But the Costello who appeared before .-the committee was shy. He allowed the television cameras to focus only on his nervous hands. He was reticent, about answering some questions. Sonic — involving his wealtVand political connections —he refused to answer at all although warned he would be cited for contempt. Twice he walked out of the hearings, complaining he was ill. Soon afterward' he was Indicted, then re-indicted Dec. 5. "11 Years" Possible The contempt charges could mean 11 years In prison and $11,000 fine. It won't be the 60-year-old Costello's first trip to court. He was convicted in 1915 of carrying a gun—nte only conviction although he often has been arrested and Indicted. Costello told the committee his career had included gambling and bootlegging^ But, he said, he never was a big shot in crime and he hadn't dabbled in politics since 1843. bers are headed for New York and Chicago. They are expected to be price conscious and cautious, after having burned their fingers with over-buying at this time last year. But manufacturers think that merchants* jurse strings will be looser now than nst fall, since many stores hnve worked inventories down to normal size. And KO far the average store las ordered only about 50 per cent of its spring needs, manufacturers estimate, and will be ordering the rest now. Record Sales Expected The garment district here expects all records to be broken this wtek in attendance at seven shows getting under way. More than 6,000 merchants are expected at the convention here the National Retail Dry Goods Association. In Los Angeles, more than 5,000 buyers from all over the country are attending the spring market week ot the California fashion creators 25,000 Buyers Exnetleil In Chicago 25,000 buyers are pected to attend more furnishing shows this week and next. Furnitun tuyers are expected to be price onscious, but manufacturers say hat store Inventories havs now boon worked down to nornmlj BO that merchants are once more in a position to buy: In the garment district here, man- ifacttirers are counting on the recent pickup in retai Isalcs of wo- lien's and children's apparel to spur juyers to fill out spring stocks. Opening Shows Listed Shows opening include: The New York Dress Institute, the National Association of House Dress Manufacturers, the House Dress Institute and the Wash Dress Market week. In addition the curtain and drapery show and the linen and domestics show are underway, and the Boys' Apparel Buyers Associations opens its convention Wednes day. While the manufacturers think business will perk up, they don't expect selling to be easy. Retailers nre demanding fast deliveries. This Is in line with the nation-wide policy of merchants to shorten the per iod of inventory-holding. They want goods to come in fast, and only in quantity for quick sales.

It was obvious, however, thai Lodge and his colleagues expected the general to ask'* to be relieved of his Western European Defense Command and return to the presidency of Columbia University, possibly next month.

Gov. Thoi.ias E. Dewey of New York, the GOP nominee in 1944 and 1948, repeated in Albany his prediction Eisenhower will be nominated and elected.

He said to reporters the general's availability as a candidate will not be affected in any way by any decision President Truman may there."

He was correct also in stating that I would not seek nomination to po- HUcal office. "I have frequently and publicly expressed my refusal to do so. •'My convictions its this regard have been reinforced by the character and importance of the duty which I was charged more than a year ago by our country and other nations or the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"Under no circumstances will I ask for relief from this a.ssign- ncnt in order to seek nomination to political office and I shall not participate in the pre-convention activities of other who may have such an intention with respect to me. "Of course, there is no question of the right of American citizens to organize in pursuit of their common convictions.
