TU18DAY, KOV. 4, 1952 1 BIYYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Election Notwithstanding Business Outlook Is Good By 8AM DAWS.V NBW YORK (fi — Election un- ccrUinty may have tome business- mac on the anxious seat. But Utere'i a rash of reassuring reports kxJaf about the slate of the economy for the near term. Winners and losers may ease their post-election erAotlons with a Hing in UM stock market for a lew days. But here is what a number of responsible sources see for business and Industry in the weeks »nd months ahead: \ . Business looks good to the National Association of Purchasing Agents well into the first quarter of 1953 at least. Us monthly report says: "The election appears to have had little bearing on current business." But it predicts a steady movement toward a buyers' market with prices levelling off, or declining. Easing Inflationary pressure is also foreseen in the monthly report of the National City Bank of New York. Business continued good in Oc- j tober, the bank says, and "although the country is. experienc- , Ing a boom, it Is fortunately a sober one." Citing; the Federal Reserve Board's report that Ita Industrial production index is at a new postwar high, the bank says, "it would be hard to find any significant evidence of weakening." Corporations are doing better this fall profitwlse, too. The bank reports that the combined earnings after taxes of 525 corporations for the July, August and September quarter wa» three per cent above their profits In the same months of 1951. The Job outlook is rosy, according to the Labor Deparlment. It reports that employment In manufacturing industries rose during September to a new postwar high, with the consumer goods industlres loading the way. The department also cites a significant downtrend in jobless benefit payments. The National Production Authority, looking at the light supply In some heavy construction equipment, reports that production is increasing and thinks that builders should find any shortages over bj the middle of 1953. Regardless of Who Wins Election We'll Have Sports-Minded President By ARTHUR E11SON WASHINGTON (ft — No matter who wins the election, the White House will have, for the first time since Warren G. Harding was there 30 . years ago, a president who goes in for a competitive sport. Eisenhower plays golf; Steven- Bon plays tennis. Harding was a golfer, and a good one. He shot consistently In the 80s. Eisenhower recently shot an 81, tnd once had a 79 at Blind Brook In Port Chester, N. Y. After harding carne a couple of fishermen: Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. Franklin D. Roosevelt swam In Bpite of his physical handicaps. Harry S. Truman walks. None of these sports is considered competitive, although there may be a> difference of opinion here by some fish and by some fishermen. Ths White House has had several •ports-minded inhabitants. George Washington was quite an athlete "in his youth. Abraham Lincoln wrestled. Despite his 245 pounds, William Howard Taft had been a good baseball player. 'Truman several limes has told the story about how he wanted to be a baseball player,* and ^iow he failed to make It because his eyesight was poor. "So they made me the umpire," grea Truman cheerfully recalls. If Eisenhower wins, he'll have the distinction no other presiden ever has had. He will be the only one ^who ever tackled the Jim Thorpe. Elsenhower was playing foot ball at West Point, and made 'the tackle in a game with Carlisle. Ei senhower and the other cadets didn't make enough tackles though. The Indians won, 27-6.

Wants Bess Truman's Shyndss,'Mrs. FDR's Popularity By BETTY FROSSER BLOOMINGTON. 111. (if) — If Buffy Ives becomes first lady of the land, she will try to steer a middle course between Bess Truman's natural shyness and Eleanor Roosevelt's flair for making news. The sister of Gov. Adlai Stevenson, - the Democratic presidential nominee, said in an interview that if her brother wins today's election, she ~probably~ will renew the regular press conference estab- Mrs. Roosevelt and quietly dropped by Mrs. Truman. But she won't attempt to act as an unofficial ambassador for Stevenson. She'd devote her efforts to managing the White House, helping with correspondence and gifts, nnd serving as hostess at official functions. Buffy is Mrs. Elizabeth Stevenson Ives, 55-year-old wife of Ernest L. Ives, a retired-diplomat. She would be Stevenson's official hostess because he Is divorced.

"It will be fun lo have some lovely evening clothes again," she mused. "We've been living very simply, and at so many affairs nowadays you. don't dress. It will be wonderful to have places to wear clothes." By "clothes" she means formal gowns, and her taste in finery reflects her taste In diversion. She ikes dinner parties, dances, reccp- tons, inusicales. She doesn't care for cards, and cocktail parties she finds "deadly" because "everyoi talks so loudly."
