TUESDAY, MAY 4, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWB T/it Notion's fiusintss Chicago Trade Gets Big Boost From Spring-Salve or Cure? By SAM DAWSON CHICAGO (AP) — That spring up-turn in business — a salve or a cure? Chicago trade industry has felt the cheering seasonal quickening. But the surge hasn't been as in some former years. And many say today they can't be sure whether the business and industrial decline has merely been slowed or whether it's touching bottom. If the slump is leveling off, Chicago will have escaped with only a few bruises, its bankers and industrial leaders say. But its industrial makeup, they add, because of a high concentration of industries that tend to wide swings in output, sales and payrolls, may yet put the region in some jeopardy in the event the nation's economy proves merely to have slowed its descent temporarily. Construction is booming. Chica- go says it's still underbuilt. Rents are high. Housing prices are firm and perhaps higher than some other places. Older houses are still selling, unlike many cities. Retail trade here this spring— after you even off the influences of different dates of Easter and temperamental weather—is holding almost as high as last year's. An increase in the number of men out of work has been felt by certain merchandise lines—particularly appliances. But still high 1954 Pulitzer Prizes Awarded in Literature NEW YORK (AP) — The successful four-year fight by Newsday, Long Island daily newspaper, to break the power of a labor racketeer has won the 1954 Pulitzer Prize for meri torious public service. The 1954 Pulitzer awards, announced yesterday, also honored John Patrick for /his play "The Teahouse of the'August Moon" and Brig. Gen. Charles A. Lindbergh for the autobiographical account of his 1927 transatlantic night in his book "The Spirit of St. Louis." There was no fiction award. The only repeat winner on the prize list was Herbert L. Block, cartoonist for the Washington Post and Times-Herald, who won his first Pulitzer Prize in 1942. This year's award was for a cartoon on tHe death;of Joseph Stalin. Newsday's feteady battle, to expose rackets in Long Island harness race track and building construction unions led three weeks ago to the imprisonment of labor czar William C. DeKoning. DeKoning, who reached his peak of power as an official of Long Island's APL Building Council, was convicted of extortion and grand larceny and sent to Sing Sing Prison for 'from 1 to 1& years. Third Honor The drama award brought to "The Teahouse of the August Moon" its third honor as the top play of the season. It previously won the Antoinette Perry aid New York Dramatic Critics Circle awards. Except for the drama and music prizes, awarded for work produced during the 1953-54 season, the Pulitzer honors were for achievements during the calendar year 1953. Established by the will of the late publisher Joseph Pulitzer, the prizes are awarded annually by the trustees of Columbia Univer- sjity with the help of a special advisory board on Pulitzer Prizes. The news photography prize' went to Mrs. Walter M. Schau, Of San Anselmo, Calif., the first woman and second amateur to win this award in the 12 years that it has been given. Mrs. Schau happened to have her camera with her a year ago yesterday when she witnessed a dramatic rescue of two men from the dangling cab of a truck that had smashed through the railing of a bridge. She snapped the picture and minutes later the cab dropped in flames to the ground below. The 39-year-old housewife, advised that she bad won the coveted prize, declared she was "no photographer at all." The Pulitzer award cites two pictures—the rescue shot and a follow-up picture of the cab after it crashed to the ground, Mrs. Schau said only the first picture was hers and a spokesman for Columbia University later announced: "It now appears this (the second picture) was taken by another photographer. Mrs. Schau's was the key picture of this rescue and, in the judgment of the advisory board, it was the outstanding picture of 1953." Vicksburg Paper Wins Both photographs were transmitted by Associated Press Wirephoto from Sacramento, Calif., May 4, 1953. Other journalism awards were:' Local reporting (two awards) — The Vicksburg (Miss.) Sunday Post-Herald for its coverage of a disastrous tornado last Dec. 5; and Alvin Scott McCoy of the Kansas City Star for a series that led to the resignation of Republican National Chairman C. Wesley Roberts under fire March 27, 1953. National reporting-—Richard Wilson of the Washington bureau of the Cowles Newspapers for his exclusive publication of the FBI report to the White House in the Harry Dexter White case. International reporting—Jim G. Lucas of Scriops-Howard Newspapers, for his "dispatches that breathed of the human beings fighting" in Korea. Editorial writing — The Boston Herald for its editorial on national defense by Don Murray. All journalism awards are worth $1,000. except Newsday's public service award, for which it received a gold medal. Literature awards, in addition to drama and biography, were: : History—Bruce Catton, a 55-year- old former newspaperman, for his Civil War study "A Stillness at Appomattox." Poetry—Theodore Roethke, for "The Waking." The music award,, which like those in literature is worth $500, went to Quincy Porter for his Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra." A $1,500 traveling scholarship in art went to Henry E. Niese of Montclair, N. J. Si/cut Argument TULSA, Okla.

And retail prices seem more stable than in some cities to the east, where price slashing" promotions have been ballyhooed. Steel output is down, meaning shorter weeks for workers—but here the production rate runs higher percentagewise than the national average, because of the transportation cost advantage that steel mills hereabouts have over some of their . distant rivals in reaching the large steel consuming market in the area. But new steel orders haven't picked up as much this spring as the mills hoped. Machinery and electronics makers have felt some spring upsurge and express confidence, with fingers crossed. Some farm machinery makers are recalling laid-off workers because of a pickup in farmers' interest in money and labor saving equipment. But the output rate isn't back to what it once was and many dealers still complain of large machinery inventories. The packing industry is healthier than a while back. Meat processors say their ratio of profit to sales remains fairly constant and small. But dropping cattle prices and large beef production have given packers the twin advantages of volume sales and easing in consumer price resistance. And few, if any, are complaining. Nofec/ Harvard Anthropologist Dies of Attack CAMBRIDGE, Mass. tflP) — Harvard University Prof. Earnest A. Hooton, 67, an internationally prominent anthropologist, died of a heart attack yesterday at his home. The controversial scientist was stricken within a few hours of the death of another outstanding Harvard faculty member. Dr. Ira T. Nathanson, 49, a cancer specialist, who also suffered a heart attack. Both died shortly after delivering lectures to students in classrooms, Hooton, who had headed the Harvard anthropology department since the early 1930s, was noted for his salty observations on the human race—known as "Hootonisms" to other scientists. His remarks once led to a demand for a Massachusetts legislative probe of "this teaching of in- hunman doctrines, contrary to the spirit of American institutions." He often contended that man was on the road back to the jungle unless he changed his ways. "Gadgets and machines are getting better while man is getting worse and worse," he said. His best known writings were "Up Prom the Apes," "Apes. Men and Morons," and "Why Men Behave Like Apes and Vice Versa." MOX -Theatre- On West Main St. In Blyrhevillt Show Starts Weekdays 7:00 Sat,.
