Car Dealers Push Hard For Buyers By SAM DAWSON AP Butlncst N«wt Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—Some of today's auto buyers are making smaller monthly payments than those of a few months back. This trend to lower down payments and longer time to repay is moderate so far and widely fcattcred — and generally deplored by leading finance companies. The trend is traced to the big rush to sell cars in a booming production year—and, even more, to sharp competition among lending agencies. Tola! auto sales are high bait rivalry is keen amorcx different makes, and dealers are pushing hard for more buyers. Lending institutions have plenty of funds on hand, often from savings on which they are paying higher interest this year. Their urge to put these funds to work is strong. Some are casing credit terms to get more business. The move this week by the Federal Reserve System to raise ahort-term interest rates isn't expected to have any immediate ef- 'feet on the auto loan market. Most lending agencies are stick- Ing to a maximum of 36 months for repayment. But the average maturity of now car installment .contracts has risen. Page 10 ftnnlrn City Telegram Thursday, July 18, 1963 In the first quarter of 1963, i about 75 per cent of all contracts ; that commercial banks and sales j f in a n c e companies purchased ! from dnalers carried maturities of 36 months, compared to 70 per cent in 1961 and 25 per cent in 1955. The average maturity last year was around 31 months, but this year has crept up to near 32 months. But in some cities of late car buyers have been 'getting up to 42 or 48 months in which to finish payments. Leading car financing companies h lame some commercial banks for this trend and say they won't go along. "The maximum 36-month term payment plan is reasonable and Ford Intends to hold to it," Robert S. Olson, chairman of Ford Motor Credit Co., said.

GARDEN BELLE LUMBER ,INC. 117 E. Fulton BR 6-7616 EDITOR'S NOTE—School seg rogation has been giving way gradually since the 1954 Supreme .,'oiirt decision. Token integration s the rule in much of the Soutli where changes have been made 3ut in some cities, another wore IBS been added to the racial vo cabulary: resegregation. By DON MCKEE Associated Pr«st Staff Writer Changes in racialpatterns have completed the cycle in some cit es—going from segregated to de iegreatcd schools, then back to eregation. This reverting, or resogrega- ion, is noticeable in Washington, VO : St. Ixvuis. Mo.; Miami, Fla., »«•*• ?<<a, i .fr?i!j-B_ 'fc nn One of the major reasons is the population shifts. White residents moved out as Negroes moved in. Washington schools lowered racial barriers without trouble in 1954. Virtually all the schoos had racially mixed student bodies. Negroes then were in a slight majority. Now they comprise 83 per cent of the enrollment and a majority of the teaching staffs. A massive population shift followed. From 36 per cent Negro in 1950, the capital went to 54 per cent in 1960 and an estimated 57 per cent now—the only major U.S. city with a Negro majority. While residents have moved to the suburbs. Negroes have stayed in the city, joined annually by thousands of migrants from the South. Negroes are unable to obtain housing in most of the sur rounding Virginia and Maryland suburbs. NashviMc<s resegregation Is attributed to population shifts by Heed Sarratt, executive director of the Southern Education Reporting Service, which studies school integration. However, a sociology professor, J. Kenneth Morland of ,Lynchburg, Va., said in a recent report that Nashville's pupil assignment policy also figured in the situation.

Fulton Morland said the policy allowed "thoso children assigned to a school in which they were in a racial minority to transfer to the nearest school in which their race is In a majority." In St. Louis, a city of 800,000, spawned an intensive campaign among the 225,000 Negroes to halt the practice of transporting Negro pupils to predominantly white schools. The main objection of the Negroes is that students taken hy bus from a predominantly Negro school are kept in the same class groups that they were in at their home school, although they take part in all other aspects of school life. Some white and Negro parents last month stopped 12 buses from leaving loading points as the dispute simmered. The school board lias denied charges of resegregat- ing the schools. St. Louis' Negro population increases; the white population de- Teases as suburbs grow. A biracial committee, trying to settle the dispute urged elimination of the bus shuttle or complete integration of the schools to which the Negroes were transported. The school board, pleding a policy of maximum integration, said school districts "which were well integrated in the mid-1950s not only have become predominantly Negro but have become oppressively overcrowded — as a result of population shifts." That was the situation at Orchard Villa School in Miami. "The exploding Negro population in Miami needed housing and instead of moving into new homes, they simply moved into houses which white persons had occupied near the school," said Robert Saunders of Tampa, a field secre- tary for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "This brought a heavy Negro population around the schools." Shifting population changed a white school into a predominantly Negro schooLin Charlotte, N.C. Negroes themselves have in some instances res'egregated schools by withdrawing from predominantly white schools. This happened in Ozark, Ark., and to some extent has occurred in Nashville. The population moves appear to be the main factor. Saunders said, "This is one of the reasons the NAACP must dedicate itself to better housing opportunities."

I hav* no excuses, rw was just better than I was. Maybe those new banking hours of his give him a lot of practice time. And, contrary to public opinion, of which I have been accused, I did not throw the game because I wanted to borrow some money (it's already borrowed) to finish my paint job at Stoner No. I. I have the paint, I am Just waiting on the painter. I also owe Andy an apology. I raited him in the paper 2 years ago when I beat him. Then he beat me last year. I promised to put it in the paper but didn't, so now I am orve-down to Andy. But the championship tournament is coming up this fall, a'nd I am going to get even with him. I don't like to lose and especially to a banker. They are supposed to be best at counting money and figuring interest, not playing games. Gold Medal FLOUR 5 t,49c Hershey's Chocolate SYRUP Lb.
