WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS The Nation's Business Weather Is Always an Important Factor in Agricultural Midwest By SAM DAWSON KANSAS CITY (AP) — In this area where the economy is neatly balanced between agriculture and industry the big questions today are: f How good will the spring rains be? And will the nation's industrial activity (to which Kansas City is tied more closely now by its postwar industrialization boom) level off soon and start back up again, maybe' after Labor Day, to give this region another chance at setting new recordsr PAGE FIVI Both sides of the economy are oif a little around here now. Farmers aren't buying as much from the stores. Layoffs are spotted here and there among the factories, with a cutback in defense spending getting- much of the blame. More people .are out of work than last year and new jobs are harder to come by. Building is off a little. But folk here show no signs of alarm. Some feel (as many stock market traders seem to) that the country is having a short business lull and see signs that inflation may start up again afterwards. "The present generation around here has been through so many crises," says Jarnes M. Kernper. chairman of the Commerce Trust Co., "that it tends to take them in stride. People don't panic easily any more. Kemper sees Kansas City as unhurt yet — down a little from the peak, as everyone expected it would be some day— but the economy still is healthy.

Young couples feel more like spending in the present and letting Uncle Sam take care of their old age. Their grandparents weren't like that — and a business dip could start a scare." So the banker feels that spending won't be down * too much, although the loss of overtime pay and shorter work weeks may lead manv to be more cautious. mostly among the unskilled. While the housing 1 shortage is a thing of the past, and there has been a softening in the price of older homes, demand for new ones continues good, he says. Houses selling under $12.000 and over $18,000 are moving best. Merchants here fret because retail sales so far have been off about 7 per cent from last year. But now they count heavily on the belated Easter trade, warmer weather, and excise tax cuts.
