In real estate and fastallment buying, easier credit restrictions and a better loan market have contributed materially to increase sales. In other HUPS, new models and tech,- nical cifwlopmpnt come in for their share of credit. And the continuing surge toward inpfhanixation In agriculture and better methods with greater production protend a better farm situ- i a I ion despite further acreage rest- rictioas and a possible drought. Rut under gird ing all of these things lie the two factors which make BlythRvllle's outlook for the coming year even better than the nation as a whole — and most merchants are looking forward to the coming year with great confidence, They point to the general attitudes and feelings of the people that have arisen since base reactivation has begun in earnest and since Central Metal Products is well Into production. One Merchant said Blytheville faces the best prospects since the war. He mentioned the base and industry, hut pointed out, "it's mainly because of the attitude of the people who feel much more optimistic and are more Inclined to spend.' An automobile dealer explained, "we're on a much sounder basis. People seem to have money and th(j farm situation is much better. Things for 1955 are on a good basis. People are in a good frame of mind." Another put it this way: "The employment Situation is much better. People are getting over the scare and aren't afraid to buy. 1 A Chamber of Commerce official pointed to the employment situation and to Increasing population in the city a.s omens of the future. The city has just recovered its population losses of the past few years, he said. It was generally believed that since the 1950 census the city had lost up to 500 people, but that trend has reversed and population i.s ngoln back to the 16.000 plus that, it was four years ago, he said. The seasonal problem, as always, will be a major one for this area, the Chamber official pointed out, and much depends on the farm situation, but (ho general outlook for the ynar nhcad is very bright. Enthusiasm of some merchants was so strong sis In predict inrvrns- e.s in 1955 up to 25 percent above 1954 sales.
