-PACK SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NRW» WEDNESDAY, MARCH 26, I»5j More Materials and Easier Credit Are Promised to Help Summer Business By SAM DAWSON N'EW YORK UV-More inaleriaLs and enster credit—to [>rhne I he pump ol industry and business by summer—are be) tig promised or proposed today. In a sudden, various government agencies or oflicials are ordering:, preparing or proposing the following: More mein) for auU%s and HI>- pliaiices- *nd ea.siei credit terms lor selling them. Etid to the curlxs on rrccUc for home repair and modernization Jotvi- nnd more tons true! ion materials lor commercial buildings. E/using of the ban on exiomlhvg natural gas to new areas—and more steel lor pipelines. End of the voluntary curbs on states and cities borrovviuK for such purposes as paying veterans' bonuses—once frowned upon as Inflationary. Alorf Steel for Oil i More steel Icr the expansion of the oit Industry and more for ship •- builders. And the television industry Is hoping .soon lo be n! lowed to build more stations throughout the land —and thus seLJ sets lo millions more. Various reasons arc assigned for these steps that arc being taken now or are being planned. In the matter of metals, it is partly n case of military needing lc.=s, now that llie defense effort is being .stretched out over a longer period. In (he of oil, natural gas and fihip building industries,, it is partly due to more materials becoming Available and partly due to the need for expanding their facilities. Easier Credit Terms In the matter of ca.sicr credit terms, the reasons given arc bcth the dwindling of the UiftnUon thrcnt and the desire to perk up .sales in depressed areas of business. Earlier granting of more metal to the auto builders Is already bearing fruit. Auto production Is up and workers are being called back in Detroit and Flint. The government now plans to let nul« manufacturers make up to 1.150,000 cars in the July-September quarter—as against sonic 950,000 in the present • q liar tor. To sell these new cars may become the chief problem. And Michigan's Senator Moody wants the Federal Reserve Boaril to lower the bars on auto credit. Now you have to pay one-third of the new car's price in eash, or trade-in, and pay the rest within 18 months. The senator wants that changed U> one- fourth down and 24 months to pay Fresh Customer Field Easier terms would open up a (io.-ih field of cusloiucrs — , u'ho can't get up the and the higher payments tinder the pro- • cut rule, what with the price of cur.s having gone up this yeur. Whal Lhf ctedit curbs or maybe the high prices have done to the great American habit of buying car.s on I he cuff i.s tihown in the Iftttii Federal v re figures on auto last ailment credit. Outstanding at tiie end of January wa.s $3,070,030.000 owed on cars being bought, on How. down 69 million dollars from Dec cm her, and comparing with the peak of $4,175,000.000 in September. 1951. Both the auto makers atirl the finance companies would like to get some bi>fii- nes:) back. Installment eredu in general was down in Jamtnrv to *13,S13,OOQ,000 from $13,500,000.000 in December.
