PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVn.LE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1953 r Better Business Predicted For Some Areas Next Year By SAM DAH'SON NEW YORK (AP) — Business next year will be belter than in 1953. That's far from the general view. But it's .the way a sizable number of businessmen are talking today. Some are talking about their particular industry, some about their own firm. A few refer only to the first part of the year, olliers to the last pnrl. But clearly some lines of business believe they'll march to new heights in the new year. Many important, segments of th * •conomy are prepared for a sill next year. The majority now scorn •eree'd that the 1954 tally lor biisl ness and industry in general ma not equal the 1953 record. But here is what some—who be Jieve they are exceptions to the rule—are saying: Take the auto industry. Outpu sights for the industry as a w'tolo have been lowered. But the niak ers of both Chevrolet and Fords say they will produce more rars in the next three months thai they did in the similar 1953 period when they were still under various controls. Suppliers of the auto industry 01 the motorist are also cheerful Auto parts replacement business is sure to increase in 1054. says one maker. J D. Wright, president of Thompson Products Inc. of Cleveland. Gross volume of business Dy the 739,000 automotive service establishments in the United States should rise 30 per cent next year, in the opinion of C. A, Benoit Jr.. president of Permatex Chemical Co. of Brooklyn. Coal Industry Worried The tire replacement business should have a banner year in 1954. says William O'Neil. president, of the General Tire & Rubber Co. The Mobile Homes Manufacturers Assn. expects 200,000 more trailers to be sold next year. Manufacturers of road making machinery look for a dip in business the first of the year but expect sales to pick up at the close to a level greater than in 1953. A glut of gasoline and fuel oil plagues the industry right now. But demand for oil products should go up by five per cent next year, many believe, and help ease the problem. The coal industry is worried now, too. But the National Coal Assn. believes output in the next three months will top the first quarter of.1953. Natural gas and electric power utilities count on 1954 setting a new production record for them. Most chemical companies are reported looking for sales and profits to be as good or better in the first half 1954 ,is in 1953. The Aluminum Co. of America expects to produce and sell more of that metal next year. More aluminum , will go into building products next year, olfi- cials of the Nichols Wire'fc Aluminum Co. a!

The National Metal Trades Assn. of Chicago rreports its members show no real apprehension for the coming year. 14 Senators Have Announced 1954 Candidacy 35 Up for Re-Election; Few Are Expected To Retire Committee Name To Sfudy State's School System LITTLE ROOK W _ The slate Board of Education today appointed a three-member committee lo consider inequalities in Arkansas' segregated school system.

Complete Service Department ce Co., WASHINGTON I/ft — A check hps shown that a majority of the 35 senators whose terms expire this year are taking their time about uiR whether they are seeking re-election. I Only (our Republicans and 10 Democrats have publicly announced that they are seeking another term. Most of (he remaining lawmakers are considered certain candidates but they apparently believe in the old political axiom against starting to run too soon. Only three senators, in interviews, insisted they have not made up their minds. Sen. Upton (R-NH), who was appointed to succeed the late Sen. Tobcy (R-NH) said he probably would have an announcement before the week ends. Two Midwestern Democrats in areas that Republicans are certain to contest also say they have reel ved decisions, although both I have been making many speeches in their states. They are Senators Douglas (Ill> and Gillette (Iowa). With Senate party lines now split 47 Republicans, 48 Democrats and one Independent, one of tiie most strenuous senatorial elections in history is indicated. Of the 35 seats up, 13 now are held by Republicans and 22 by THE LITTLE TREE THAT TALKED A Cfcrfofmoi Story By WALT SCOTT r^ w if > •*••••••• w» v* f r Oh,J'm"just"a~^rit.'Ws^-Jfl 6ort ofhefp StMck v. time of year 1 walk the lax/. )• chore..

He'd rather climb stairs on his hands and knees than take a comfortable ride in an elevator. And he'd rather use an advertising method that might succeed in place of a method that doesn't fail. Fortunately he's a rare creature. The advertising that always docs its job, of course, is newspaper advertising. It's basic. Very few manufacturers or advertisers, for example, would even dream of trying to introduce a new product without using newspapers. Because only the newspaper reaches just about everybody in town ... regularly... day in and day out. And today more people are reading more newspapers than at any time in history. No wonder it's basic for advertisers! All business is local ... and so are all newspapers!
