Tlfot attitude mr-atis defeat. No un- (Iurl;ikinir for the .-elfaro of munity was ever put over by letting (lie civic .siiickws .sol lite pace. There is just puc question wbicli tlu! business men and property owners of lilythcvillc need to ask before de- {(nniiiiiij; upon the amounts they are willing to tfivc. Tbat is: WHAT IS IT \VORTH TO ME TO BRING THIS INDUSTRY TO BLYTHRVILLK? If wo are not. willing to answer that qiiesl i»ii for ourselves and to pay accordingly the §70,000 will never he raised. Hero are a few Tack; Thc 570,000 will be spent, mostly for local labor and materials, to erect n factory building for Ihe nxe of the Rice-Stix Dry Goods company, a highly responsible concern which has offered to establish in Bly- thevillc a cotton garment factory which will have a payroll of between ? 1SO,000 and §200,000 per ycnr . There is every prospect Dint the size and- payroll of the factory will later I JC . increased. It i.s not improbable Hint ultimately it m;iv linvc :i payroll as l)if as the Chicago i\lil! and Lumber company had before it began to ctir- (ail its operations here. Does Ulyllievillc need an insliltilion of that kind? Does your business need it? Ts it necessary to protect thc investment which you have in business and residential property in Ibis city? Wouldn't it b c worth to you, Mr. Miisincss Man and Mr. Property Owner, a t'ood deal more than your share of tlie ?70,000 that must be raised to obtain it? Hlytheville is having a very good year from a business .standpoint. Why? Kcciiuso hundreds of thousands of dollars in farm benefit checks were •distributed is this vicinity last winter; hundreds of thousands of dollars of soldiers bonus money came into the bands of local men last spring; an unusually good cotton crop . is being marketed at a .satisfactory price. It is a fine situation but it doesn't hold any guaranty for the future. Wouldn't'it be wise to put n part of present profits into insurance of future good business? .
