Th« gnawer to.that question will b« ; forthcoming when the Chamber of Com- merce'B Industrial Committee lays its p]»ng for establishing an industrial fo.un- • ; dation before^ Blytheville's businessmen. : How badly do«8 the town need additional ;jndu»try ? : • 'That question is being answered now. • A who]esal« gt-ocer reports his fall busi-' ; n«ea better than 30 per cent. A realtor *aya 500 persons have left Blytheville in recent months. '•Merchants, ; with . rucks . and... counU ers full of merchandise in anticipation • of the usual fall cotton money, are still awaiting the "usual" fall influx of farm dollars. Some are beginning to realize ; th, gteady stream of money which normally ii connected with a cotton har: vest, will be little more than a dribble -thi« year with Mississippi County scraping up the remnants of one of the poorest cotton crops in county history. A small group of Blytheville businessmen currently is fostering the industrial foundation plan which is mentioned above. This plan is not designed to put an industry'in business with a grand gift. It will, should it receive the solid backing necessary to make it go over, provide the Chamber with Uie tools necessary to actually swing industrial'pros- pects from the potential status to the dotted line. The plan is being mapped out at the recommendation of the Chamber of Commerce's Industrial Committee. This group has not hit on this idea by sit. ting about an office in ineffectual com- i mittee meetings. Since the first of the ; year members of this committee have I given of more than ^,000 hours of their I time in contacting and talking to exe- i cutives of industry who have considered | expansion. j ,,,BuL the competition for industry in I the ' south (and elsewhere) is savage. | Blytheville's Industrial Committee has i been armed with little moie than the j very personalities of the men on that f committee. Other cities have funds in • readiness to construct buildings to the I specifications of potential industry. I Think this doesn't help? It could . have meant a §400,000 annual payroll | to this city as recently as four weeks I »go. If such a program is set up, it may j still mean acquisition of this particular I industry, which is willing to take a \ lease on the building and pay a reason- i able amount of rent, j Most towns which have set up thesa , industrial foundations make their in- r veetraentt pay off at about six per cent.

Should the industrial foundation plan fail, it would reflect the opinion that Blytheville has no real deslrs to bol- ater ita income from agriculture and its content to watch other southern cities outstrip it in population and uales, Views of Others Seff-Restraiht When tome major eompanlai an gruitlni elf wa«* Increa^ea to their Uflionl, it la natural for other union* to want aa much..

They ar* really insisting. The spiraling uptrend and its problems are causing government officials anxiety. Secretary of Labor Tobin, for initance, told the recent convention of the American Federation of Labor that excessive wage demands would force the government to resort to rigid wage controls. He urged organized labor to use self-restraint. When so much is Involved In the way of inflation and the purchasing power and living standard! of the great majority of the American people who will draw no raises, this teems particularly a time to guard against overdoing. Both management and labor have a duty to avoid disturbing extremes In pricet and wages.
