SIGHT BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COTJBIER NEWB SATURDAY, APRIL S, Heart Attack WferenGet l« « I lurvfvon of Pfftt Attack Givt n fetter Chanct CHICAGO (AP) — Good news lor sufferers from one of the worst forms of "heart at- teek** was related today to the annual meeting of the American Heart Assn. Dr. Louis N. Kate of Michael Reese Hospital. Chicago, reported evideaoe that life- expectancy for people who survive an initial attack of "myocardial infarction" is longer, on the average, than lias previously been believed, even •tough such people may have sub- •qeuent attacks. Myocardial infarction involves the "death" of an area of heart muscle as a result of loss of blood supply to that area. The loss of blood supply is, in turn, due to a clot in the "blood vessel supplying the area. •Khe doctor also said that a study by himself and two associates- Doctors David R- Cole and Evelyn B. Singian— -showed that among the group of patients they studied, almost two out of three who survived an initial attack were able to return to moderate or complete activity, at least for a time. Records Studied He said records were studied on 460 patients who suffered their first attack sometime during the decade 1932-1942. Among these, 285 survived that first attack. The "follow up" studies were done on these 365 until death, or, in the case of survivors, until 1952 when the study ended. Of the 285. two-thirds were found to have lived over five years, two- liftfas over 10 years and one-tenth ever 15 years. At the end of the study, 89 of the 285 were still alive and they had lived 14 years on the average. Most of the deaths were due to heart disease. Dr. Eatz, in his prepared report, did not specifically state what .the previous estimates of life, expectancy for such cases were, but he declared in summing up his re'port: "The life expectancy following l«covery from the first attack of BUBDETTE SENIORS REHEARSE — Shirley Bevill, Emma Perkins .Jimmy Epperson, Peggy Lloyd, Billy Lutes and Jack McDermott go through one of many trying situations in Burdette senior class play, "Everything Happens to Us."

State Highway Revenues: $387 Million LITTLE ROCK Lf> — Arkansas collected $38,743,644 in highway revenues during the 1953-54 bond year, but less than half of it was reserved for state highway construction and maintenance. More than 21 millions was used in collection costs, debt service, county and city turnback funds and refunds for agricultural gasoline. The State Finance Department said revenue collected during the bond year which ended Wednesday was $1,630,993 higher than the pre- ceeding year and the highest total collection on record. Highway revenues were corn- piled on the bond year plan for the first time in 1942, when the total was $17,652,813. The 6V2 per gallon gasoline 1 tax brought in $2-9,144,797 this year, compared to $27,978,791 last year. Motor vehicle licese fees paid $9,399,649 compared to $8,940.649 the previous year. Fees from the automobile license division (such as title registrations, chauffeurs licenses, etc) refunded $199,3£3, compared to $193,109. Of the total, $17,534,644 Was reserved for highway spending. The remainder was distributed as follows: $1,185,536, collection costs. $12,250,000, debt service to pay principal and interest on borrowed money to build highways. $5,631,380 distributed to counties for county road systems. One million, municipalities. $1,875,000, refunds for taxes paid on gasoline used exclusively for farm purposes.

Yesterday's qualify for special developments thus touched on virtually every major ramification of the resounding row between the Wisconsin senator and civilian officials of the Army, beginning with the Peress case which Obituaries , the excise tax cuts of Thursday. | initiated its most violent phase. For the week ended Wednesday, Dun & Bradstreet estimated retail sales to be four to eight per cent lower than a year ago when Easter fell on April 5. This year Horse Hitches Return CHICO, Calif. (#)—-Remember the old iron hitching posts of the horse and buggy days?. Many of the older homes still have them. Owners of new homes are buying the posts and installing them on their curbs — no one knows just why. Easter is April 18, and merchants predict the traditional Easter rush plus lowered prices resulting from the excise tax cuts will bring a sales boom. The Dun & Bradstreet report was for the week that ended the day before the tax cuts went into effect. Since then, spot surveys bring reports from some merchants of a noticeable pickup in sales of items on which taxes were reduced although, as one put it, "they aren't breaking the .doors down." The reductions in retail excise taxes, such as those on luggage, jewelry and furs, were effective immediately. There was some delay in many cases on retail price reductions on items such as home appliances on which the tax is at manufacturers' level. A lowering of federal support prices for butter brought price cuts of five to 10 cents a pound around the country. But wholesale food prices, as measured by Dun &Bradstreet, climbed to a new alltime high and to 17.4 per cent above a year ago. The unemployment picture also remained clouded, although the decline in jobs appeared to be leveling off. The Census Bureau said unemployment in March reached 3,725, 00(f for a gain of 54,000 over February. Among other economic indicators freight carloadings declined slightly, soft coal and crude oil production both were down a little, and electric power output dropped fractionally.

Ad Litem. 3/27-4/3-10-17 Supply Base For Support Price Urged PALM BEACH, Fla. (^—Cotton price supports based on supply as as parity are recommended by C. C. Hohenburg of Selma, Ala., president of the Atlantic Cotton Association. "We can ill ailord to continue to pile up huge surpluses at the frightening rates of the past two years," he said yesterday at the association's 31st annual convention. "Farmers can ill afford to give up markets or lost opportunities for cotton markets when there is a bright future on the horizon. I am confident that consumption of cotton can be expanded instead of restricted if our course is true.'* He told some 300 cotton men from. Alamaba, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia and Florida that they would have to decide between: 1. High level inflexible price supports without crippling acreage restrictions. 2. High level mnexible price supports with acreage restriction sufficient to prevent prolonged surpluses. 3. Flexible price supports with no guarantees except at disaster levels. 4. Flexible price supports determined by supply as well as pariiy, but with minimums set to prevent precipitous declines in farm buying power.
