Between 1930 and 1940 Blytheville's proud progress was stopped. In that ten year period we barely topped the population figure of 1930. The population of Blytheville in 1950 is a matter of concern to all of us but just as important asa population increase is the progress of our city generally!

The progress of Blytheville in the next ten years depends upon the leadership chosen now and maintained during that period.
