SATURDAY, AUG. 29, 19S3 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Easy Payment Plan. Invades Stock Market By RICHARD KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — For a small monthly payment, you may soon be able to buy some American industry. That grand old custom — easy ' terms — is about to invade ths Block market. As of Oct. 1 or thereabouts, it'll be as easy to buy a share of common stock as it Is to buy a home freezer, television set or a diamond ring. Easier, in fact, because there'll be no down pay- payment. The installment plan Is the latest • In the New York Stock Exchange's bid for more stock buying by people who aren't rich executives. The Exchange,- and particularly its president, Keith Funston, want to get the middle class into the stock buying habit. And they figure that this is one good way. It's all still tentative, of course, but details are being worked out. * * • Basically, it's the same idea as the World War n plan for buying war bonds. You don't sign a contract or anything. You can stop any time. You must pay cash; no credit. You first decide how much you can pay, rather than how much you want to buy. You might, for example, figure that you can lay out $50 a month for stocks. (Incidentally, $40 or $50 will probably be the minimum.) You go to a e broker or bank, and work out your plan. Suppose you and the broker decide that Amal gamated Horseradish would be a good company to invest in. Every month, then, you buy $50 worth of their shares. RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark. SATURDAY UTAH , WAGON TRAIN With Rex Allen and "Ko Ko" a, SATURDAY OWL SHOW GHOST OF RASHMON HALL With Valentine Dyall Ann Howard Every month you get as many, the time a $1 per share dividend shares, or fractions thereof, as was declared, you'd get a check for youv $50 will buy at the moment. " "" One month, AmalHorsrdsh may be selling for$60 a share, so your investment will buy only 5/6 of a share that month. Another month, perhaps the stock is selling for $40. so your regular payment buys IVt shares. Or you can split your investment, and put $25 of your monthly $50 into AmalHorsrdsh and the other $25 into Consolidated Mixed Pickles. The first time that your payments account for one full share of stock, you get .a certificate, similar to stock certificates ordinary buyers get. Dividend payments would be dls- trfbuted on the same fractional ba- there is one big difference. The sis as your purchases. If you i Stock Exchange offers no free owned l'/ 4 shares of ConMixPick at home trial. $1.25. The Stock Exchange, except for promoting the idea and serving: as a clearing house, has little to do with the actual operation. It sells no stock to individuals. You have to deal through a broker or a bank. Since stock brokers have to make a living:, too, the usual method of commissions, paid by the purchaser, will continue, with slight modifications. Each of • your monthly payments will have 6 per cent deducted for the broker's cut. In case you think that this plan is identical with that offered by the home appliance stores, be advised Hound Shoots Two Hunters PLYMOUTH, England (ft — A stag hound which had just chased a deer into the River Yeo shot and seriously injured two hunters yesterday. Victims of the strange misadventure were Col. Louis Murphy and Ralph Slocombe. The deer plunged into the river to throw off pursuit.

Both Murphy and Slocombe wer struck by heavy pellets. They wer taken to a hospital.

They're, sending planes loaded with specially-matte paper containers into the bush to land on lakes or rivers near the scene of the blaze. The plane unloads firefighters who head across country to the fire with extinguishers. Then the aircraft's crew fill the paper containers with water, and fly over the fire area. The containers, each with a load of 3 y 2 gallons of water, are dumped in the path of the flames. The paper breaks when it hits trees or brush, spilling the water about and halting the fire's progress. 1950 1951 1952 1953 1943 1949 CORN PRICES NOT POPPING—Above Newschart shows changes in corn prices from 1938 to 1952, and prices expected for 1953. Principally as a result of the larger supply and weakening of demand, corn prices declined below the national average support price in 1952-53, after staying above the support level during most of the two preceding years. Favorable weather for the 1953 crop and prospects for a record supply in 1953-54 have contributed to weakness in pi-ices this summer. A minimum support of $1.56 per bushel has been announced for the 1953 crop. Data from U. S. Department of Agriculture. Read Courier News Classified Ads. Decisive Birthdays COLUMBIA. Mo.
